      Definitely a bias against bungee cords by me.

      Hooks and rotating masses have a gravitational attractiveness that doubles with speed ;-)

      My preference is for cam straps and the occasional ratchet tie-down.

      I have seen Joel (from Human Powered Cycles) do amazing load tiedowns (and temp construction) with old inner tubes.
      but I do like the neatness of straps.

      And if so, why?

      No judgement either way!

      Securing a load on any vehicle is an art form - even more so on a bike.

      I'd love to hear some of our Roots Rads "Artists" discuss their preferred "mediums" (bungee, rope, straps, dental floss, etc.) and how/why they came settle on them.
