    I have an SKS Chainboard installed on my Xtracycle with a 3x8 drivetrain.
    I managed to luck out, hard, in that I had no installation issues.

    I would back that project if it worked well at night.
    I installed a Hero Go Pro on my Xtracycle's snapdeck. Unfortunately, it didn't work well at night.

    I generally take it easy, leaving early enough so that I don't have to push it. The days that I leave late and have to push it, I don't seem to enjoy the ride as much.

    I was using my rear (disc) brake as a drag brake earlier this winter to keep from building up too much speed on an icy downhill run, when all of a sudden I had nothing happening back there.

    I just stuff mine into the road side Dummy Bag.

    If I didn't have an Xtracycle, I would probably use a milk crate ziptied to the rack.
