Actually the ells are better than caps on the ends,in case water gets in there.


Gosh, beautiful improvisation. And I love how the extension of the pipe which holds the broom handles also doubles as a mount to keep the top-heavy brooms upright with just a pair of velcro straps. Brilliant.

But sewing? Really? An improvised solution is not supposed to have such a well-tailored solution... I had to use a pun.

Ryan, I hope you don't mind me asking, but would you mention what kind of tires you are using? I'm still in the trenches trudging through tire specifications and the reflecting sidewall of your tires caught my eye.

Very nice hack, durn you! I can't count the times riding on a commute where I wish I'd had a broom handy, what with cities not bothering to sweep roads regularly anymore. :-( Now I don't have an excuse to not do something like this!

As for the tires, my guess is they're Schwalbe Marathons.


Sorry to take so long to acknowledge the comments section here. Thanks for the positive words.

Jay, I'm not at home with that bike right now but I believe they are Schwalbe Marathons (as Leo guessed) and I have many happy [and largely flat-free] miles on them so no complaints.
