thats what scared the shit out of me. mine let go when i was "only" doing about 40mph, in a straight line, on the road. there was no warning and i don't remember the bump that finished it off. likely a manhole cover or something.

the thing that scres me now is the tyre locking up on me. i was doing 40 in a straight line. what if i was doing 60 round a corner with traffic going the other way? freaky doode....

Why not use a couple of zip-ties as a backup. You could fab up a spacer block towards the back that would rest against the sub-frame and tool box.

I've seen the impossible made possible..

Your tire is moving in the momentum of where you don't want the tube to be,
I see a possible catapult or lock up. What if the knobs catch a corner of tube?? You could also drop the bike on that side and bend something, so now you have more problems to deal with. You see where I'm getting at?
A small canister like the stock tool pouch is O.K. and is definetly out of the way but you have a telephone pole back there amigo..

I see an empty luggage rack that can accomodate your tools, tubes and such easily.

Gotta go to work see ya..
the tube is no larger in dia then the charcoal cannister. but i still follow ya. good thing i ain't selling them!

Imagine a spacer block about 3/4 of the way back on the tube. It would be as wide as one of the sides of the hexagon of the tube. The other end would taper and rest against the subframe. Maybe even cup the subframe. Drill holes in it and route zipties/safety wire around the box, through the spacer and around the subframe keeping it from leveraging off of the tabs at the front. Better?

crystal baby I was hoping the stiff wire attached to the cap would do that (it doesnt bend easy) but the hard feature would be even better. thanks for the idea!
