Not enough

It will make that noise when it is not far enough to engage. Spin the back tire and press a little higher.

Vintage

Would love to see the vintage camping setups. If anyone still uses a 30+ year old bike, do you use vintage gear too?

Link would be nice. I ordered a set from Dime City but I ordered the wrong one and it is 35mm too long. It physically would not install so I am still looking or going to reorder from them.

Shorties

FYI - I am running EMGO shorties and just hate the noise. But it is legal, they were easy to install and very light weight.

I will continue to look for alternatives.
