This bike is screaming for one of those frame bags. I don't know what they are called but they mount under the top tube and along the seat tube. I'll find a pic of one..


edit, Found one...

My Hardrock feels like a SUV.. this is more like a light pickup truck or something I'm interested to see how it rides with skinnier tires.. wondering if the improved handling will be worth the harsher ride. The fat tires and super relaxed head tube angle really eat up road hazards

It's Halt. Pepper spray for dogs. I've never actually used it other than to spray a quick burst to make sure it works.

Thanks. I got mine as basically NOS in 2008. It's a 1994 model and still had the original store price tag when I got it for $100. Not too much of the original bike remains though... frame, fork, seat post, kickstand, brakes, rear cassette & derailleur.... I think everything else has been replaced/upgraded, most of those done on a budget. I had no plan, I just upgraded as opportunities arose.

There is such a thing as wide and fast... can't tell you how much I love the Schwalbe Hurricane and find that my steel Moulden XC bike with 26 by 2.0Hurricanes is faster than the Trek with it's 700:35 Schwalbe CX Compes and then those wire version Hurricanes wear out (if they ever do) will replace them with the folding version to knock a little more weight off an already light bike.

It feels more like a road bike... mind you... with the rack and fenders it curbs out at < 24 pounds.

The Moulden runs a 44 at the top and gearing maxes out at 100 gear inches... often find myself spinning out in the upper ranges and rarely use the middle or granny unless I go off road where a 24/34 bail out is more than welcome.

I rode my bike today with the mount. The phone was kind of bouncing when hitting bumps at 25mph, but it was 100% secure. I have no doubt in my mind that the phone will be fine.
This is a video from the iPhone's point of view on the mount. There is some shaking and some bouncing, but it's ok.

Can't you tilt the camera more upward to make the video show the surroundings like you see them while you bike?
The color lens effect of your camera is very obvious here.

I remounted it on the bars (moved from the stem) and took a new video. I agree that video is very boring. When I take my iPhone in to be replaced, I will show them this video.

I will upload the new video asap.

Here's the new video. Sorry it's so shaky. I didn't tighten the zip ties all the way, and because of that, the phone was shaking.

I remounted it with new zip ties again and changed the angle of the mount because I often get lost and I need to be able to see the screen and use it as a GPS. I won't be doing any more videos until I get a second mount (one for video recording and one for GPS). The "holster" that attaches to the part on the handlebars is hot swappable between all of RAM's iPhone mounts (car, bike, etc..)

I think I stuck this in the wrong thread...
Cannondale Quick 6; Handles 230lb me, and 50 lbs of groceries or whatever without complaint; and yet, unloaded, fairly fast able to hold 15-19 mph without overly stressing the rider.



Interesting oddities.. added garage door opener single push button, R-A-M mount for GPS/phone. The paniers are unfancy REI stuff, but quite durable. Front paniers, I inserted small plastic trash cans that provide water proof carriage for wet stuff (fished fish, bought meat, dairy, etc).

This bike replaced a Jamis hybrid that I'd completely worn out the wheels and freewheel, but used components that couldn't reasonably be replaced (and didn't have rear quick release anyway; so nice upgrade).

That's a lot better
The constant sound of the wind in the mic isn't all that though.
You could either replace the sound by some music, which I do not advise since anybody looking at your video might hate the music or you could make some sort of windscreen for the mic made out of tissue or open cell foam to reduce the noise.

This could be due to many reasons including firewall, corporate proxy server, addons in your browser, settings in your browser, etc...
