Last week BOTH of the zippers on my rack-top bag decided to give out. Not happy news, since I’m not exactly in a position where I can spend $75 on a new bag right now. While examining it to see if I could make repairs I discovered that the rack connector was held on by screws. Not rivets, not some crazy proprietary screw, just regular old Phillips head screws.
And thus was born…
Total cost: $5 worth of Tupperware and half an hour of elbow grease.
I must confess I was worried about having my U-Lock pop up and knock the top off during a commute, but it passed the test this morning with flying colors. (Indeed, the only time the top popped off was when I accidentally kicked it mounting up.)
