TubeFob: Handy Bicycle Inner Tube Luggage Tie
This is how I carry a strip of inner tube that can be used to tie down groceries etc. to the luggage rack of my bike. As fellow makers will appreciate, this stuff has many other uses.
Why not add inner tube to your Every Day Carry alongside paracord and duct tape!
Over the winter, on my rides home, I made a habit of buying more groceries than my rucksack would hold. Standing in the cold, digging through my bag, I could never find any cord or bungee. One time, I used my belt, but I have not yet resorted to my bootlaces! This stopped being fun . . .
Never again will you be without a strong, stretchy and grippy solution to secure your bicycle luggage!
