Only trouble is, my rear wheel is a screw through, not a quick release or bolt, so I need something attached to the saddle post. Can't find anything else out there. Bolt-through rear for touring is an unusual...

Re: Rangers FC really are goooooone

Sounds like the right time for Rangers to apply to join the Blue Square Bet North Conference. Never know, twenty years or so, they might make the Championship.

Does it use loads more battery leaving the wifi on? Probably it does, but like something definitive if poss.
