I have this old Schwinn road bike, and on rare occasion when I find a patch of ground that I'd rather not let her traverse over, I pick up my bike, mount it on my shoulder, and hike across until I get back to suitable terrain. At least, I traditionally do, but I just picked up a new bike that has cable stops on the bottom side of the seat tube, so that when carrying it on my shoulder the brake cable cuts into me.
It might be unnecessary to carry it, as I guess it's unlikely that any glass will submerge into the tire without me putting pressure on it, but even then I have fun doing it.
So, I'm thinking of getting a hack-saw and slicing off the welded stops. I've read some old posts about someone trying to mount a stop on a fixed geared bike and most of the alternatives were being derided, with the OP eventually settling on using zip-ties. Are the clamp-on stops rubbish or should I get my saw and buy one of these?
