So is this a crazy way to carry spare spokes onboard, or an ingenious chain stay protector? As you can see there are 3 spokes strung to the top of the drive side chain stay. The spokes are tightened into place with 3 spare nipples. The bike is a late 80’s Diamond Back Ascent EX made w/ Tange double butted tubing. Whatever the consenus, I think its pretty cool!!!
