Even with a lightweight bicycle, there looks to be much that could go wrong with that plan. Not least of which is that the bicycle and rack is all unsprung weight being supported on the swingarm mounted mudguard. I don't see what protects the tail light from being scraped when you hit a bump. Probably the rack and bicycle would just disappear on a hard bump.

It's a Slime tire sealer dispenser. I see he's already used quite a bit as the reservoir is getting low. Needs to add more to be safe. >:):angel:

One can never be too careful with motorcycle gear, be sure to inquire if the safety word is included with the deal.

Wondering if the facebook poster did this in ignorance or jest. Still laughing anyway. :lol2::lol2::lol2::nonono:

Did I say I'd seen it anywhere?:nerd: I have seen almost all kinds of motorcycle gear, and that ain't it :eek2:
That sort of thing is outside my area of expertise.:lol2:

You just can't make this stuff up.

Dude posts his work in progress pic (and can't even do that much correctly, but wait...it gets better) and asks for opinions. Now I'm sure most of you will find the problem right away, some might take a little longer but it's plain as day...and don't sweat it if you can't find it as it gets divulged in the conversation that ensues. Anyways, the "pic" as posted:



...and this text string begins:



Wow. This is the genius building the bike and he didn't catch that...

it might could maybe work, there are actually 4 of the thinner tubes, and since it's a hard-tail that part is under tension not compression, so maybe, but, yeah I'd expect to later see that bit distorted and some gussets welded on to try to save it, lol
