    I have considered going to the used electronics store and getting a couple of used, out of date phones. I only want the camera function so out of date and obsolete for phone use does not matter.

    Since the thread is determined to be specific to a high, central load, I think that it may be fairly safe to say that there is not a good answer. Anybody can state that a high center of gravity is...

    I swear by Mr. Tuffy. They are in every bike at this house. Ok, sidewalls are still at risk. But, the main tread area is heavily armored. Worth every penny.
