I Heart Old Innertubes

PIC-0040I hardly ever ride my road bike anymore, but I still keep a couple of old inner tubes around as they seem to com in handy.

The pic above attempts to show a bracket for my Planet Bike headlamp. While the bracket itself has some rubber on it, it was not enough to hold the light firmly on the bars.

I took one of my old road tubes and cut off about an inch, and then cut a slice down the middle. I then stuck it around the bars and put the bracket over it and tightened the clamp.

The light no longer moves. While it is not that elegant to look at, it sure works well. I even repeated the procedure with the vintage German bell that I found at a houses ale.
