35 views and not one comment on my idea.
H-m-m-m-m. I promise, I DID take a shower this morning!
One's opinion of a good idea isn't always the same as someone else's opinion of what a good idea constitutes, I guess.
I guess I should have started a thread asking, "How do I adjust my chain?"
Read your article, wasn't going to make a comment, because article was well thought out. You only get comments when someone doesn't understand the purpose or the how to do part of it. The seat pad interested me and may try it, but more than that the silicone in the handle bars to cut the buzz, hadn't thought about that. The prices of some of the stuff they ask for is ridiculous. You buy the hard bags then have to buy the frame work to mount them, what, around $600.00. Had a large set of bicycle waterproof soft bags, went down to a local custom welder, trelleses and stuff, he made a frame for them for $50.00,used the bicycle bag frame for a pattern, bags $60.00, from Nashbar, enough capacity to cross the country and waterproof, lite, easy to remove which is the bad part, used the mini bunges off the mounting tangs and secured them, by drilling small hole in the mounting tangs. Seen bicyclist go coast to coast with these bags on their bicycles at 15 to 20 mph, figured I could do it at 50 to 70 mph easier. Take them off put them in the tent, motel room, whatever, they are just as safe there as your hard bags are, if someone wants to steal them, they will get either one just as easy, then go trailing. Anyway, just put your brain to it, sometimes you will find a better and cheaper way to do it, than the people gouging the day lights out of your wallet.
