Too Much Junk

Kermit Crowds the Light Bracket
Frankenbike has never been about simple elegance. Instead, it is a conglomeration of various parts from around the world that mostly work pretty well. Still, I think I’ve passed the point where things start to simply represent too much junk. This happened when I added a cup holder to the fork that holds the gear shifter so I can carry two cups home from the local espresso stand. To avoid whacking my knee, I moved the fork forward and now I can’t toss the cable lock onto it. I also notice that only my smallest headlight can clip onto the handlebar bracket without interfering with Kermit.
Perhaps Kermit needs to retire.

Handlebar Tape is Getting a Bit Ratty as Well

You just need to clamp on another appendage to support a bank of lights below and in front of the handlebar.

Kermit would fit quite nicely on a Nitto front rack. ;-)

I 'disapprove'. Kermit should stay.
Peace :)

How about a Nitto handlebar mount widget? I think I may have one.

Well, the ladies at the espresso stand have gotten fond of Kermit.
