Re: Genesis of a Rear Tank Mount
I lined the inside of the clamp area with a piece of a thorn proof bike tube. It seemed to be pretty stout when it was tightened up.
The tank can be mounted with the cap to either end of the bracket. I really like the way it looks with the cap side forward. The seat is tightened with a quick clamp so lossening it up and pushing the seat to the side to fill it isn't to big a deal.
The seat post was the original that came with the bike. I cut it to the length I wanted and had it welded at work.
