Default drill/tap in frames

The tape is from tesa. It is even an illustration of
a bike on the back side of the case. I also use it for
hockey sticks. I would think it one of the best tape
rolls in the inventory for the purpose, but actually
I don't like sticky tape *at all* on bikes! But for
handlebar wrappings and cases such as this I suppose
there is no getting "around" it.

Today I finally spent some quality time on my own
bike again, and I put on the plastic Zefal bottle
cage using cloth tape on the down tube and then two
galvanized hoose clamps. The bottle cage is
designed for screws but the result seemed solid
enough. BTW it is an interesting bike. I think it
is from the early-mid 80s. A steel frame, it has
a Shimano Positron 5 shifter, but the single
chainwheel is so big even on a flat surface, the
biggest sprocket is the only one feasible to use.
But I love it anyway thanks to the 630 wheels and
cross levers for the rim brakes.


cloth tape holds moisture against the finish; poor
choice of material.


Against the finish?


The paint.

Of course there is a way of getting around it. You get around it by
using the proper product for the job instead of a kludge with hose
clamps that saves a few Euros (or whatever).

OK, well it is possible it holds water more than other
kind of tape, I mean, it makes sense. Not that it
matters in this case but I'll think of it the next
time I do it.

BTW there is a new "Gorilla" tape [1] on the market
that has an elaborate box/homepage with a gorilla
depicted But who cares as long as the product
itself is good? It seems good to me and has a more
shiny touch than the tesa tape.

Well, to me the hose clamp is just another item (like
a bolt or penny washer or whatever) and I don't have
any feelings associated with/to it whatsoever, and
while I care about the looks of a bike, even if
I would consider the clamp inelegant such a small item
can't do harm to any extent that matters to the
whole vehicle!

As always, it is just a bike! (or clamp)

Much more important is that it sticks, is easy to
apply, is solid and do not make an annoying sound.
