comment attaching seatpost acessories to rear of racks?
not really trying to buy another light... maybe i can go to market with a simple solution like the 1st answer mention, a pipe that attaches to the standard rack mounting hole

comment best rear rack for fuji absolute bike?
we plan to use the rack for two side retractable baskets. but don't plan on carrying too much weight... i just installed it using brute force... and it appears to be too forward. guess that when i get the side baskets i will have problems

i will take the rack out of my bike and try to fix there to have an idea. i'm mostly worried that i will have to bend the suport 'wires'. or that i will have to put it too forward that side baskets will not be an option (main idea is to have side baskets for grocery shopping)

comment Home-made sealed freewheel?
@jrockway i looked into white industries but they only make one speed stuff that does not help for long distances and/or mountain. And that's a very valid point, why there's no $50 sealed freewheel? only $12 disposable ones. My sealed hubs on that bike are 13yr old and run great.

everyone recommends this oil, even on the older answers right here... but for $15-20 each 4oz bottle i'm considering stocking freewheels. but the topic here is for a wacky try at sealing the freewheels :)

wd40 is not a lubricant! it will eventually makes things worse.

if you start to turn the crancks backwards very slowly, does it push the chain forward or does it freewheel perfectly? if it pushes the chain, you may need grease in the bearings, or a weekly oiling of the freewheel

comment Home-made sealed freewheel?
the pawls are fine even on my old one. the cogs too. The issue is the lack of 'freewheeling' when coasting or backpedaling. If there's not much momentum it will sometimes slightly drag the chain forward just enough to keep hiting my frame. I do add oil every now and then (3-4wk). I tried adding grease, but it generates even more drag.

Even if i buy a new one, the manufacturer recomends i lube it every 6months or less (BMX forums everyone lube the nonsealed free[wheels/hubs] everytime they lube the chain) so i'm trying to think on a long term solution. i don't want to replace a very good working piece just because it's missing oil every year.
