Sportful Hot Pack.
In addition to everything else mentioned, there is a distinct 'top' and 'bottom' side to the black spring clip, due to a very slight ramp angle on the inner diameter of the clip. If you look...
Check out Reflexite tape. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se1OqJtNfuw
AFAIK, it's the same stuff you see on semi trailers & school busses.
Am I the only one who wants to know about this crank arrangement??
I went through both wheels to tighten & true up; spoke tension out of the box was quite low. That's the first thing I'd do and you've got that covered. Next I'd put Kool Stop pads on.
I'm glad I...
Gorgeous whip! Is that patent sticker under or over the clear?
I have dual PB Blaze mounted on my LHT's low rider eyelets on DIY mounts using a couple of parts from the irrigation & h/w aisles at Lowe's. I know I didn't spend more than $4 for everything and...
Beauty of a bike; that's one HONKER of a stem - what is that thing, 160??
Yeah, because every friggin' wild dog will be chasing you down the road. :roflmao2:
Yeah, I wasn't as much mad as I was wondering "Geez, what else'll get thrown at me tonight?".
I mean, when I see skateboarders or any teenagers for that matter, when I'm riding or driving, I...
Black would be stylin', but go with yellow for the real world.
Bikema trumps double Carma. OP, you were right, one moron deserves another.
I wonder what story they each floated to the parental units back home.
I see we're not due for one until September, but geez, I'da thought one was out tonight.
Commuting home around 10:00pm, I come up upon a dark stretch (no streetlights near) where there's a cross...
I have the Topeak Aero Wedge size medium, with the clip/saddle-clamp setup. It's tapered, plus I removed the seatpost strap entirely, so there is nothing to snag the shorts. Easy to remove for flat...
OK, I'll throw my $0.02 in:
1. letting the glue cure overnight; this is key in my book
2. replacing tubes on the road, patching at home
3. patching multiple tubes at once
After I have...
Is one of these the same as 'Reflexite'?
You won't want to overload it; handling gets very sketchy.
Right now I've got a tube, levers, couple of hex keys, multi-tool, phone, bluetooth headset, wallet (in the interior zipped pocket),...
I'll probably never use that feature, since my intention was to keep that bag always with me.
I've been running the Ortlieb Ultimate Plus size large on mine. Since it's been raining almost non-stop lately, I really appreciate the waterproof qualities of this bag. Good construction,...
CLEAR! Gimme those paddles!!
OK, anyone have any other DIY brainstorms for mounting a NYFU onto a rear rack since last April? Or will a Kryptonite or On Guard bracket fasten onto the rack tubing...
Maybe not on that pack, but check this out: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_type=&search_query=surly+long+haul+trucker+reflexite&aq=f
A bit of Reflexite tape works wonders, IMO.
+1. I just got my LHT a few weeks back and went over the wheels to bring them up to proper tension - the spokes were reading quite low right out of the box.
OP - another possible angle - does your office allow people to bring their pets to work?
Are those the Surly racks you've got there? How do you like them?
LHT Completes now ship with uncut steerers. But most shops whack half of it off before putting 'em out for sale on the floor.
