    Heat Shrink tubing

    I am looking for some thick walled heat shrink tubing for my battery pack and was wondering if you guys had some suggestions on what worked well for you. The battery pack is a Nightrider that I had to rewire and is 6 AA by 5 AA. It had some good stuff on there and I would like to find something similar. Unfortuantally there is nothing like it where I live and looking on the web does not give you a good idea what it is like. I have been leaning towards some PVC or Polyolefin. Website links would be great.

    Try radio shack, Home Depot or any place that electrical contractors shop. It is possible that if you heat electrical tape with a heat *** you will get what you want. BTW, 12v home lighting systems are often uninsulated so insulation might not even be needed in your case.
    2000 Montague CX, I do not recommend it, but still ride it.
    Strida 3, I recommend it for rides < 10mi wo steep hills.
    2006 Rowbike 720 Sport, I recommend it as an exercise bike.
    1996 Birdy, Recommend.
    Wieleder CARiBIKE (folding), decent frame.
