    Give me some ideals

    I have a few allen bolts on my frame that arent being used. They were for regular caliper brakes but I have discs so they are just sitting there looking usless. I want to attach something to them, but cant think of anything right now. i thought of maybe trying to use them for extra bottle holders on the back or some type of small cage or something. Or God forbid, a huge Flag that waves in the wind hahaha. Something small but usefull. Any ideals??
    MegadetH is the best ever! Deal with it...or not? HHMmm. Did I spell that right? I might look it up. Rambling here...this might be a good time to end...lets see..good, good ill end it here. Now I gotta hit "Save Signature" or this wont work like I had planned. To many options. This screens to bright although i do like the pale grey background. Easy on the eyes, I suppose thats a good thing

    Perfect! It's a little bit of work but you could fabricate a nice sissy bar for your bike that you could bolt onto there. I'd think that would match your ideals.

    Here's an ideal: Be nice to other people.
    Here's an idea: just take the bolts off if you don't need them and they really bug you.

    The idea of just taking them off is an ideal solution.

    Taking the bolts off invites rust, the bolts if nothing else stop water from entering his frame. How about a nice air horn or three? Hook them all together and you can scare the hell out of anyone as you pass them.
    I once prayed to god for a bike, but quickly found out he didnt work that way...so I stole a bike and prayed for his forgiveness

    Even though I am agnostic, the 10 commandments are a good place to start.

    Seriously, I'd just leave them there. Spare bolts if you loose another one of the same size.

    How about a billet titanium bracket to hold the pickup for a computer?

    You could make a custom bracket and attach your blinkie/reflector off to the left side instead of the seatpost for a different look and maybe even receive a little more passing clearance from motorists. This would leave the back of the seat open for one of those small packs if you wanted.

    If you go with horns, use electric car horns and mount both high and low tone horns rated at 130 dbls. Sounds like a car and REALLY scares the crap out of people.
