that doesn't look like a safe way to ride to me, but have at it man,...
HaHa! I know what you mean........One should be cautioned!
Been doing it that way for over thirty years! Figured it out after I over grew the B.M.X. trick bikes and started going across town on mountain peddle bikes [can't beet the durability] I still prolly look like a circus bear on the mountain bikes. tho Down hill forks leave miles of room for grocery's etc. with out having tire contact issues. I only had to run ins with it early on some 20 years ago then never again after the triple tree down hill style forks.

Grocery bags would still occasionally work them loose where by I just re-tightened them. I love the metal throttles I bought they will out live me!
Still gotta have a since of humor.
