Re: Being Ready for Road Failures
I'm not exactly a veteran but I have had a petal fall off, seat post and fender lossen, so far in 90 miles of breakin. I have applied locktite blue to most of the fasteners and made sure they all have lock washer. Something falling off at 20 miles per hour could hurt! I carry a muti screwdrive, bike allen wrenchs, small cresent, spoke wrench, plyers and most important a cell phone.
The next bike I build will have the handle bars, seat post, and seat spotwelded into place to fit me. Wiring will run inside the tube frame. Bike will be with a coaster brake, front brake and be a single speed. So far that's what I found in 90 miles
