To: John and Cecil :
In fact, I haven't received the kit yet, but trying to predict what would happen. Did you use two duty zipties in an X pattern?
You are perfectly right, but are you sure that suffices (I mean did you do that in reality?). I am looking for proven solutions.
I used one ziptie and I wrapped it around twice in an x pattern around the bb and on both sides of the downtube. You are going to have to improvise. I understand though, after I got the motor I figured I was screwed because there is no place to bolt to the kickstand plate. I am really pedaling this thing hard though to get up some steep hills with 35lbs on the rear rack and it isn't budging. The ziptie I used is 1/4" wide however I have reels of Deltec make-your-own and they are 1/2" wide and have separate clamping mechanisms so you can make zipties up to 50' long. I believe truckers use the deltec ones to secure cargo
BTW, that is one sweet looking frame. We only have a single pivot point frame but we aren't taking any jumps or anything due to chubby little Cecil riding on the back.
I took a pic from the back so you can see what we did, it was just a quick try to get on the road quickly but it has held up well so far.
