    Stuff from the bicycle world

    For those of you looking for a carrier for the rear rack on your T Dub may I suggest you take a gander at the world of bicycle accessories. They have some pretty interesting folding, metal mesh baskets and other type of mounts for rear racks many of which appear to be very sturdy. I suggest starting on Ebay under sporting goods, cycling, accessories, rear carriers.

    I've been reading about protective gear and some recommend things from a lot of different sports. From bikes to paint ball. I've read about panniers for bikes made out of plastic kitty litter containers. Makes sense that something would work, from bicycle to cycle.

    Well, I don't actually have one of those. My compadre, the Hootenstein, claims he is bringing some deluxe beers. I will be content if Eddie has some Jalapeno on tap. Don't always have it, sometimes have it but you have to ask. But I love it like no other. They put a little ring of pepper in it. It's awesome. And all you have to do is stagger across the street for fish tacos.

    I have been considering these Panniers I think with a little American Engineering I could make them work.

    thats got to be quite the work out with the bags and one gear. I love how those bikes were always **ss. I loved the bass they had about 8 years back. brown and gold.

    If you buy those bags consider supporting your local bike shop.

    The bike that works ya is that monster that Ebbanflood turned me on to. I modified mine as he instructed, but it still is a pig. I do like it though. That was a great thread. Manuel Beastly
