Did you use it to move your reflector from your seatpost to your rear basket?

You could use the pipe for a rear light holder similar to the front. =)

I would take the leftover pipe and attach it to the back rear of the bottom of your rear basket so that you can move your red reflector further out so that it can be less covered by whatever is in your basket.


I suspect you cut the extra pipe into a series of different lengths, and then fashioned a pan flute out of them. When attached to your bike, you would make music whenever you rode.


Darn, Beth posted my idea! ;-D

Actually, an aeolian bike sounds kind of fun, but it probably was the tail lights.

I like the pan flute idea. I suggest you make a club for the unruly dogs you encounter during your urban commute.


There's something to be said for mounting your lights lower too. It better lights up the road right in front of your wheel and potentially, more of the beam is hitting the road instead of the trees (could be a bad thing for off road). Also, potentially creates more shadows on the asphalt so you might have a better chance of seeing debris or potholes. I've mounted a tiny keychain light on a fork blade when my main light gave out and was surprised it provided some light to guide me on the road.


this is a great idea.... I did mine the same way after seeing this
