    Pit bull's secret

    Here is something that I would like to share with the many people that have been kind enough to respond on the other thread about the pedals. I'm just an old buck having some fun. So try and stay on the lighter side of life, because the journey is short. Many other people may do this, but if nobody has thought of it check out this video https://youtu.be/IIrKUoZhtAs

    How do you tighten the seat post clamp without a torque wrench after you've changed a flat tire?
    "That pretty much sums it up. I'm 43 and my max is ~178-180. If that HR chart was mine or Froome's, we'd be on the verge of death. But for you it probably looks like a normal workout." -TLG

    #rattletrap? That's what jersey pockets are for if you don't like under seat bags (I don't either).

    Like normal shoes so you don't ruin any floors or take a dive w/ your cleats?

    You could keep your water in the seat tube as well, and eliminate those water bottles.

    Not a terrible idea.

    I too do not like seat bags so I use a cage pod.

    It does take up one bottle cage though but I wouldn't want to remove my seatpost so much.

    Oh my, a troll who doesn't know the difference between your and you're. What will they think of next?

    How is your hearing?

    No way a metal co2 cartridge and inflator dropped into your seat tube doesn't rattle. No friggin way.

    How do you mark your seatpost to get the correct height after taking it out?

    And that won't work with Di2.



    I couldn't care less what people think my saddle bag looks like. Bikes are for riding, not wall art.

    No, man, fill the tubes with hydrogen; that'll make the bike lighter!

    But, seriously, this is the sort of 'solution' I'd expect from a great mind such as this.......

    Obviously, the scrunched-up tube prevents the rattle.

    Speaking of rattles, when I watched the video to the end, this was the next one that Youtube queued up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AxxRKXQjtE

    I keep my handlebars filled with Clif Shot gel. Just pull off a bar plug and suck it. I know, thatís what she said.

    ditch the water bottles and wear a Camelbak pouch UNDER your jersey for a more stealth look.

    And store tubes and co2 in your "seat hole"?

    No need for either. Just drink it all before the ride and carry it that way.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    Good idea, its always better to be prepared. But since I've never had a problem it seems like a little overkill haha.

    The tube won't fit with the water. Duh.

    I've been riding for about 5 years now, and I've only had 3 flat tires. Knock on wood. Two of those flats happened at the same time when I hit a pot hole in the road and had pinch flats. So as you can see I don't have to remove the seat that often in the last 5 years.

    Yep that is your opinion, and I'm sure your proud of it. I can only tell you what I think is happening because I can't see inside the tube, is that when I drop the Co2 in it gets stuck, I believe that it is bottoming out on the water bottle screw then I insert the inflator then by the time I push my tube and seat down it must create enough pressure to prevent all rattling. On my particular bike I literally have to scrape the sticker off of the Co2 for it to actually fit down inside the frame. But no matter whats happened so far it doesn't rattle for me. I just made a very small scratch on my seat post, it is small enough I'm the only one who knows where it is.

    One thing that I have learned about the internet as this is my first forum I've ever used, (as I still use a file cabinet with paper files) is there are a lot of people out here with lots of opinions. Those opinions are very important to themselves, but not necessarily for the rest of the world.

    It is secured flat on the inside, I've never had any issues with it at all.

    Yes, I do believe that is whats happening.

    If that is what you do, that is fine.

    That may be a good idea, as I would like a clean look to the bike. Do you use a Camelbak at all, if so does the extra weight on your shoulders bother you at all?

    I don't have that luxury.

    I can't use the seat tube because that's where the battery for the hidden motor is. FML

    Yes I'm very proud of it. Even made myself a certificate to hang on the wall.

    I still don't believe it doesn't rattle. But I guess if you have to scrape the sticker off the Co2 to jam it down your seat tube at the risk of it getting stuck (which sounds utterly stupid) maybe it works for your exact frame. You should have posted this in the Specialized sub forum.
