    I looped my U-Lock over the back of the saddle, sat on it to stop it moving and tied a plastic shopping bag round the lock to stop the water passing through! Very happy with myself hehe

    I’d love one in wedding white! ;D


  • Adam says:

    For a while during a long month of constant rain I used an old skateboard deck that I duck taped to my bike seat. It looked ridiculous and was terribly uncomfortable, but was incredibly effective! I’m very proud of that innovation.

    I would love the Zingy Orange Ass Savers, as it would match with my bright blue bike.
