    whatever the thickness of the Holde box is, is too much. could be 25% thinner and still be strong enough for serious abuse.

    Sorry the ratchet remains inside. So you need two slots in the front panel but none in the others. Couple of big washers could keep the back panel off the frame allowing the strap to remain outside there without being pinched. Washers should be used regardless.

    Probably won't simplify things much honestly.

    The biggest issue is that all that wood weighs a fawking metric ton.

    Doesn't fit? Is that the issue?

    I have the holde box and although it is perfect on the user end, I never understood why they routed the truck straps inside the panels. I simply leave mine on the outside and it works perfectly. Might simplify your endeavor. You can catch a glimpse of what im getting at in the background of this picture of a faulty tire.

    I absolutely hate it, but I bet it would be interesting to own if you had the garage and house to go with it.

    oh your fork is threadless! my bad. i like that stem, but i'd probably not commit using it near a chrome fork unless i was comfortable with switching it should it look a bit too much.

    no idea why im jumping in the thread so much.

    Love the bike.

    I've gone through so many handlebars over so many bikes.

    My view is the upright shorter posture is the intended characteristic of swept bars like this and attempting to bring the reach back out to what you were used to with drops/hoods is seriously uncomfortable because of the moderate amount of sweep.

    If you dislike the inefficient, slower feeling
    But also don't want drops then I'd might try mustache bars. The handle a longer reach a little better and have multiple positions to move around on - many of which are in front of the stem clamp.

    Just my opinion

    this is the direction i'd go but with a prettier post.
