Dude that's a crazy amount of stuff on your bars. That's more packed than Neil Peart's drum kit.

I move that we don't...

I move that we start referring to me as:
The Super Bright And Extra Visible Leader Of The Peleton Who Takes Care Of Lots Of Stuff For The Rest Of Us (as submitted by Haven_kd7yct in the Titles/Ranks thread)

And for those of you who don't know, Neil Peart is an author, lyricist, and the drummer for the group RUSH.

Rubberside Down!

K'tesh - If you stop at the store on your way home and have to lockup your bike outside, how long does it take you to remove and then reinstall all of your lights? Or do you just hope that no one steals anything while you're gone?

I moved these posts off of another thread as they were unrelated...

About two-five minutes off and on... faster if it's raining...

Yes, I'm familiar with bar extenders, and really what more do I need (except Personal Injury Protection coverage, and UM/UIM coverage for my bike).

Just out of curiosity: where do you keep your trinewt battery? That really is the item that bothers me the most when I'm removing/installing items at night. I place mine along the top tube and have to thread the velcro under the break cables.

I modified two waterbottles to create a battery holder that fits in my downtube's waterbottle cage.

Instructions on how to do this is found in my flickr set:



Improving the TriNewt's Battery.

I also created a mostly text version that I posted here.

If you look carefully, you might notice that I modified the MiNewt and TriNewt to have a light on indicator that is not tied to the electronics...



Those instructions clearly need to be uploaded to flickr too, but for now are found on my UFObike site.

It should be noted that I've replaced the green fluorescent rod with blue, and added a drop of Tamiya's clear blue acrylic paint to tint it better.

Hope this helps...
Cya Out There!
