Meanwhile in my garage..... A friend of mine wanted to improve my bike's fork skin set up, and "make it as good as his WR's". He gave me some 3mm plastic tubing, made of some very tough slippery material that I don't remember. He did tell me but I was distracted by a squirrel or something. Anyway, I removed my Moose racing fork skin thingies and gave them a good hand wash and dry. No one likes a dirty fork skin. Then after a trip to Princess Auto for a bag of 100 zip ties for $3.99 I returned home to bring my bike up to WR specs. Not wanting to have fun poked at me by engineers. If you ever need to get a 3mm zip tie through a 3mm tube, no amount of lube will do, just ask an engineer. An engineer told me that most problems can be rectified by liberal application of lube, butt not this one.... So I thought up my own little method. Warm the tubing then gently squeeze into an oval shape like so. Zip tie almost goes through like the tube was 4mm. Hmmmm. Two Tubed ties ready to tie around a tube or two. Two cleansed forkskins ready to have their tubed-ties tied to two tubes. Tubed-ties tied to two tubes to prevent chafing two forkskins. An un-lubed engineering marvel. Now back to our regularly scheduled programing.
