there's a similar technique to that where your knot the tube where the puncture is. makes the tube harder to fit, but saves carrying zip ties.
Wanted a full mudguard on my Cube Attain GTC, which has 'hidden' mudguard eyelets but no seat stay bridge. Did not fancy the official Cubeguards, which by all accounts are not great. Made my own mount with an old reflector bracket around the seat tube.
Exceptional bodge (a bodge is an endearment in my book). Those plastic dodads are very useful. I remember seeing a picture of a guy using a front reflector as a chain keeper.
have you you tried this ?
I tried it a couple times with leaves and grass and it was a total disaster 😂
No, it just seemed weird to me. Almost like it was just added as filler.
Wanted to use a bigger water bottle so I don't need to stop midride during lockdown. Some of the bottle cage extenders seem overpriced for a piece of metal!
Take 1 spare ikea cupboard bracket...
Cut to size and drill 4 holes...
Attach to bike to lower bottle and hydrate!
Cut and drilled by hand? Everything is so straight and aligned!
Thanks :) Used a oscillating multi-tool and hacksaw for cutting and a cordless drill.
Spotted on a 1951 frame on Retrobike. Presumably to run a normal drop brake with 700c wheels on a frame designed for 27" wheels?
That's a prettier option than running a long drop caliper?
Got a carbon frame without a disc brake mount? No problem, #justboltthatsuckerrighton
On a Belgium Tour in 2011 roadside repair strapping the inner sprocket to the spokes for a broken freewheel, this enabled Mick to ride the 10 miles to a bike shop in Poperinge for a new wheel whilst on a short tour of Belgium.
Of course this mean't that he had to keep pedalling like a pseudo fixedwheel :)
@AntSel @damitamit excellent stuff.
Sound like a good way to pop a few spokes, but also top tier, commendable bodgery
I've had that as a Wish advert on Facebook. Looks like a complete deathtrap.
I might try one on a pub beater.
Franken-ebike bodged together with Blu-tack, zip ties and electrical tape
Tired of my saddle bag hitting my legs on makeshift saddle loops, taken a broken bagman mount to move it a bit further back, then bolted on a pannier rack stay to stop it swinging forward.
May trim the stay at a later date.
