I think I have seen the answer to the radiator vs towel rail problem.
People make vertical radiators that you can buy towel rails to attach on to, like so:

That looks good.   :thumbsup:

If no dust/grit gets on top of the seal then your fine.
Just find some very thin stretch fabric/neoprene.
Then sew a cover that slides down over the brake lever and covers all the top brake body.
Zip tie in place with the smallest zip ties you can find.
My last set of dead brakes had done over 3 years with no trouble before I boiled them and blew the seat that way.
Don't go down +20% hills at over 40 mph with a full camping load and expect to stop quickly.
That the other way I kill brakes .......  ;D

IIRC my loop-over-the-tyre one might have had further implications for how the bike fitted into the back of the car. My panniers (Ortlieb front rollers) also needed different sized fittings to fit on nicely.

Nice day out. Took it fairly easy and got back at 6pm, with about an hour of stops.

I met Bobbinogs although I didn't realise it was him at the time.

Mrs Dan had the bolt holding saddle to seat post shear off yesterday. So today I fitted the replacement post to her bike.
I also swapped an inner tube with an annoyingly short valve for a more usable one, and unfettled a tyre lever in the process.

Today marks the centenary of the death of Manfred von Richtofen.

Thought it appropriate to mark it here.

The first carries the panniers high, like on the back. The second is designed to carry the panniers low down and to mount onto points built into the forks. The third is like the second except that it is adaptable for forks without built in points. Your choice is limited by what provision has been made by the fork manufacturer for fitting pannier carriers; you can't fit the style that requires built-in points if your fork doesn't have them.
Apart from all that there are several manufacturers with differences in design but the first point still holds: what you can fit depends on what the fork is and what provision is made by the manufacturer (and your own ingenuity).

I hid 8 'clutches' of four Lindt mini eggs for David to discover on Easter Sunday.

Six clutches remain undiscovered.
