In awe and envy as usual. Love the baby bed in the workshop :)
These are super smart, lovely job.
Yeah they are. Are yours 31.8mm as well?
That's my mate Thomas's. He is supposed to refurbish it. Hasn't happened so far meh
Thanks man. Works really well. Really chuffed
28.6 :| parently the other moto clamp standard, apart from 22.2. Sjs had a shim for that tho
Well he must be very young still, you mustn't expect too much of him.
Ready for my first proper commute ever. 33km. Should be easy enough but I am allowing myself a couple of hours for it.
I had to move the rear light to accommodate the seatpack. This will have to do until I get my rack and rando bag sorted.
Sorry about the really shit photos.
Will you be carrying a laptop in the future?
Love that you made these, they feel like a product you should be able to buy
Mmm I am hoping I don't have to. But if that ends up being the case I'll use panniers and steel forks on a different bike.
If we move back to Aarhus the commute will be too long and I will have to rethink how I get my kms.
I Google it but no luck
I'd rather be a motorist
Having to cart a laptop in and out is what keeps me using a rack top bag. I’d love to go rackless (as long as it also means backpack-less)
I love this thread btw. Thanks for the picture and explanations
I'd rather be a motorist
Thanks dude. Much appreciated
Commute went great. Not undoable at all with 33km each way. 25km/h on the way out and 27km/h. If this carries on I'll be doing it in hour soon :)
Very nice! My commute strategy is to cruise in to work at 25km/h or so to avoid sweating, and hammer it home to get a workout in! Good balance
There's a shower at work and I am slightly obese so I sweat just putting on my gear
What bag do you use?
Carrying a laptop is the reason I still commute (4-7 km) with a backpack.. Would love to go without, but i'm unsure that a laptop would take kindly to the bumping that comes from going up and down curbs, potholes etc.
I found carradice great for laptop. I’m not precious about mine because it’s the work’s laptop and it’s quite solid anyway, if I was I think a laptop sleeve would bring some peace of mind. Front pannier worked well too but the rack is attached more permanently to the bike.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
