With a ton of places being shut down and a lot of us having some extra time on our hands due to being stuck inside, there has been some creativity going on to keep things interesting. Tate Roskelley decided to cook up the Quarantine Contraption to find a new, far more interesting way to install his front wheel on his bike. Hit play to watch the struggle of making this all work to actually getting it perfect. We can’t imagine how frustrating this got at times, haha. Either way, this turned out awesome!
“Forget experimenting in the kitchen, Tate Roskelley took his stay at home creativity to the next level with his Quarantine Contraption. The Quarantine Contraption is a complex machine comprised of random household items including a broom, mop, step ladder, Slinky, and a few things very specific to Tate’s house, including a traffic cone, street signs, and two GT BMX bikes.
