Handmade in Hawaii

A few days ago a box from Kailua, Hawaii arrived at my door. It was a coffee mug, handmade by Jeff of The Flat Tire blog. Jeff is in the process of developing a couple of bike themed mugs and wondered if anybody would be interested in doing some product testing. I quickly volunteered. He wanted to be sure that the handle would stand up to real world use and abuse. The handle is a very cool, detailed replica of a bike chain. Jeff's also working on another version with a mountain bike tire as the handle. If things work out he may start selling them.

My new favorite mug on my trusty Keurig coffee maker.

Bikes and coffee, the perfect combination.


  1. I already want one of those. I hope testing goes well.

  2. Thanks for the shout out and glad it fit your coffee maker!

  3. Hey, how come the mug looks cooler when it's in a coffee maker?
