Re: and another thing
- Someone asked so I stuck a folder with some pics of my bike with a
chain tube and baskets in it - folder called Geelez' xtracycle.
Oh, and I used just two cable ties so the tube rode up and down the
seat stay freely. Sorry its a bit dirty, very much bike in use. Oh
also if you can see it I have a small lead acid gel battery in a bag
strapped under the snap deck - good for a week's winter riding.
The baskets are held on by small octopus clamps, you can undo the
back two to make packing groceries in the panniers easier as it
hinges up on the other one. Whole thing takes a few seconds to put
on and take off as I do a commute into town every day otherwise.
...for my next trick I will attach an xtracycle to a unicycle...the
uni-xtracycle is born!
