- Aug 5, 2010Definitely 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.Pete.B'Newspapers are unable, seemingly, to discriminate between a bicycle accident and the collapse of civilization' : George Bernard Shaw

Is there a bias in the the Roots Rads community against Bungees?
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.
