I agree, bungee straps are not a good idea - stretchy straps are a problem for something like this.

Those straps are similar to what I use, but heavier and perhaps overkill. My favourite straps for bicycle use are Coghlan's Arno Straps. They have the same kind of spring-loaded, toothed grippers, and are widely available in 2-packs of 24", 36", 48" and 60" lengths. I have an assortment of lengths and they're easy to join together when you need a longer strap.


Much respect to the guy who came up with this plan, but it does seem like it'd be way easier, and almost as cheap, to get the kid a normal hardtail commuting bike.

Yes, but it's only a bit over a mile, and this is the bike he just had to have. Teenagers.
