    Whatchamacollar Alternatives?

    ADMIN: I didn't realize I was in the Commuting forum when I posted this. Could it be moved to the Cargo Bikes forum?

    I've been using my Big Dummy for a while now, and I started to wonder if watchamacollars would stiffen up my rack a bit. From some posts it sounds like it makes a big difference in the handling when you have heavy loads. I'd like to try it out, but I am having a hard time with spending between $60 and $80 for four seatpost clamp looking thingies.

    Has anyone used other hardware to achieve a similar results? Or, if anyone has ideas for alternate hardware I'm all ears. I'm going to measure my frame, and Vracks tonight to see what the diameter is, and whether I could modify existing seatpost clamps to do the job.

    Well, I had no idea what they were, but upon googling it got this DIY article that sounds like what you were thinking:
