Anyway, once everything was all packed up, I loaded some of the boxes on Gilbert's rack, and carried a pair in a bag slung over my shoulder (not ideal, but I wasn't going far). It was quite a stack behind me- I had to employ an auxiliary bungee.
This evening, I was remarking on a gizmo that I installed recently- it's a spring tension wheel stabilizer, which keeps the wheel mostly straight forward when you've got it up on a double legged kickstand like so:
(look ma, no hands!)
I had one of these on Robert that I tracked down in Barcelona when I was visiting, but the attachment to the downtube wasn't great. This one came from Velo Orange, and it is much easier to attach and adjust.
There's a bracket which fits on the back of the crown brake bolt (I had to drill it out so that the "Sheldon's fender nut" would fit through it)
This isn't for everyone, but if you have a double legged kickstand, and often have a heavily laden bike, it's extra insurance against dreaded front wheel flop that can take the whole bike down.
