You know how—when you park your bike—the front wheel swings around and bangs the handlebar end into the top tube, chipping your nice paint job? If you have loaded panniers on the front, often, the whole bike will tip over and crash to the pavement. If you’re carrying puppies and/or explosives in your bags, the result can be unnerving.
Well, there’s a trick the Old General taught me that takes care of that little problem. “You take one of those straps off your rat traps,” the Old General said with an impish grin, “then you wrap it around the front wheel and latch it to the downtube. Cannon fire won’t shake that wheel loose” Then the Old General limped off into the darkness shouting, “Charlie’s in the wire, Charlie’s in the wire!”
Indeed, Charlie is in the wire, but if you follow this simple trick all your wildest dreams will come true.
