a very cheap, foldable, clippable bike cover
that could be thrown over your bike to keep
really cheap so they could get trashed or
stolen and it would be ok.
thin plastic can roll up really easily and clip
right onto your bike frame.
$11.49 cheap enough?
People complain about too small, too flimsy. "Eeew, it's getting mud all over my mountain bike!" [jutta, May 22 2007]

you could use a grill cover with your college emblem on it

||So, a bit like a tarpaulin, but thinner, and maybe shaped so as not to flap around so much in the breeze?
||A sort of anorak for your bicycle?
||Yeah, this is Baked. Make it spray-on, then it'd be half-baked.
||I'm not sure it is baked - depends on what
Kerryoco means by "very cheap". I think
$11.49 or £9.99 is not cheap enough for
you not to worry about its being nicked -
just like bike lights or a pump.
||Maybe "cheap" would mean, basically, an
odd-shaped bin-liner type of thing: good
enough to survive a few uses, but cheap
enough to buy on a roll and throw away.
||The only part of a wet bike that I find objectionable is the seat. A shower cap would do that job quite well.
||It is traditional in the UK to tie a plastic
carrier bag over the bicycle seat. Oddly,
though, it does not seem to the custom to
remove the bag before cycling.
||MB: "like that only cheaper" is an automatic disqualifier for ideas here (see Help File under "me too").
||//"like that only cheaper" is an automatic
disqualifier// Fair comment. How about
"like that only cheaper..and on a roll"?
||i've never seen anything quite like i'm
talking about (obviously..) - i live in
new york, so the theft issue is pretty
key - the covers i've seen have been too
expensive and bulky. you could buy a
roll of what i'm envisioning like trash
bags. they roll up in 30 seconds and
clip around your bike frame. ideally you
never have to carry your bike upstairs
anymore. i HAVE heard these bags can
actually TRAP evaporating moisture
underneath though, which would defeat
