Modifying a salsa anything cage or Blackburn cargo carrier to a fork without mounts.
I went to the Do it Center to purchase 4 1-2″ number 10 Hose Clamps decided to get 6.
I found a old 26″ tube laying around because who rides 26″ mountain bikes anymore hehe. I searched my house for an hour to find shoe glue from a previous project and started to cut up strips of tube to glue fit to the hose clamps to protect the carbon fork. Also to protect rockshock when I mount on Enduro bike.
I was feeling great about this although it was getting messy and time consuming.
Then Legendary Ski Racer John Peckham stops by to see if I wanted to go for a bike ride.
I want to finish this project first I said. Then as a good buddy would say hey dummy why don’t you just cut a 6 inch piece take off the wheel then slide it over the fork like a sock.
Thinking it won’t work it will be to lose. But Sum Beach it worked great. The time I waisted it was so simple.
The tube fitting like a perfect sock
