So, I've been seeing all sorts of different subscription services popping up lately. I've even subscribed to a couple of them (Loot Crate, Cairn), and found them either interesting or useful. Yesterday I heard about one that, over the course of 2 years, you can get all the parts to build a 1:1 scale model of the Millennium Falcon, based off of the model used in the original Star Wars Movies.
That got me to thinking. Wouldn't it be awesome if there was a subscription service to build your own bike, piece by piece? When you sign up, you get to choose the style of bike you want (Road, Mountain bike, fixie, etc.) and you start off with an unpainted frame. Each month you get a new group of pieces to add to your bike, maybe include some of the special tools needed. Maybe even get to select some of the option before it's sent out.
This would be great to learn all the ins and outs of working on a bicycle, and allow you to build a bike over a period of time, taking out the need to pay all up front.
I think some enterprising bicycle company or business savvy people should look into this. Just saying.... #Bicycle #subscription #cycling
