Okay so I got a little carried away with the
title. Really this is just the third edition of 10
bike hacks, and some of them are pretty weird. From how to film, to how to eat, here are
some fun tricks for mountain, road, and bmx. Let’s get started. Get a huge nail, bolt, or even a tent stake,
and mount one of these GoPro bases to it. Heating up the tape a lot will make it stick
better. Once it cools you can use it as a handle,
or stick it in the ground to film yourself. Although it’s clearly unsafe, It’s more
badass than a gorilla pod, and easier to set up. I call it a GoShank. While the GoShank is great in a pinch, some
jobs require a real tripod. Many hydration packs have these buckles at
the top for the front pouch. Secure the upper part of a tripod leg behind
this buckle, and tuck the bottom of the leg behind the shoulder strap. It’s amazing how well the tripod stays in
place. I’ve seen more than one Youtuber use this
trick. Old inner tubes are usually left in the trash,
but actually you can make heavy duty rubber bands out of them. These don’t dry out as quickly as normal
rubber bands, and they’re great for securing—inner tubes. It looks like if you double them up they could
also be used as volume reducers. After all, volume reducers just sit there
and take up space. There’s nothing worse than showing up to a
race without the entry fee, which is usually cash only. Pull the end cap off your handlebar and hide
a $20 bill inside. Put an inner tube rubber band around it so
that it doesn’t slide around, and you’ll have emergency funds if you forget your wallet. This could get you out of a jam someday. As we saw in another video you could also
use that bit of currency to brace a sidewall tear. After experimenting with 5 different methods
we found that a rolled up bill holds up with the best of them. This is because currency is made from a water
resistant durable cloth, rather than traditional paper. Just slip the bill between the tire and a
tube, and carefully pump it up. This can get you back to the trailhead without
walking. When I showed the cable fray trick in another
video, some of you thought I was playing it in reverse, but it’s true! You can unfray some cables by twisting them
from the base and working your way back up. This works particularly well on cables that
were recently frayed, and usually by clipping a little off the end and adding a new cap,
you’re back up and running without needing to swap the whole thing. Car interior cleaning wipes are a really convenient
way to clean your bike. Although I wouldn’t use them on moving parts,
and certainly not on disc brakes, they do work great on the rest of the bike. They’re great for getting into tight spaces,
and you can always leave a can of them in your car for ease of use. I’ve heard you shouldn’t use these on
tires, but I’ve been doing it with no adverse affects. Of course I do take care not to get any on
the tread. When you’re climbing a fire road the summertime,
particularly in the northeast, gnats seem to find their way to your face, eyes, and
mouth. This is because they tend to fly to the highest
point on your body. So while you’re climbing that fire road,
put your arm in the air for some temporary relief, and then sprint away to make your
escape. If you want to accurately weigh your bike
these purpose built scales are just awesome, but you can do it on the cheap with a fish
scale. It’s not pretty, and it’s not easy to
hook your bike to, but it’s surprisingly accurate and it gets the job done for $10. Fish scales sometimes have a measuring tape
built in, which is a cool bonus. I see a lot of riders use trail mix as a snack,
in fact the sweet and salty mix seems to be ideal for some quick, filling energy. But trail mix is lame, so make your own! Home made trail mix is anything but lame. Just pick out a few awesome ingredients, pour
them into a container, and mix them up real good. I’m using cranberries, peanuts, and reese’s
in mine. If you want to spice it up you can snap into
a Slim Jim. I guarantee you won’t find this trail mix
in stores. So there you go. 10 more, sort of bike hacks. I’m starting a new list now and figure it
should be done by the summer. If you have any bike hacks let me know in
the comments and maybe you’ll see it in the next video. Until then, thanks for riding with me today
and I’ll see you next time.

    It's amazing how many bands you get from one innertube – in the cave/tech diving community we use them a lot for stowing gear / hoses or enabling us to run lines through caves and wrecks – though we generally refer to them as "snoopy loops" , I've no idea where the name came from but I must be one of the very few people who has actually gone into a bike shop and asked for old / discarded innertubes to build up a stockpile of them – certainly got a few confused look until i explained … and then later saw one of the bike shops guys taking their entry level scuba course!

    Some time ago I was without cable caps, I looked at a box where they had some electronics and they had some heat-shrink tubes … I took the thinnest ones, put them on the ends of the cables and heated.

    A single meter of shrink tube last a few years on my bikes.

    @ If you hang your bikes on a vertical metal pole with a rough surface your saddle rails can get scratches and scuffs. To solve that problem wrap the pole with an inner tube till it reaches the tip and hold it tight with zip ties or tape. For maximum protection DO NOT CUT THE INNER TUBE BY THE LINE.

    Cable ends, twist 'em up like in the vid as much as you can, then clean it if you can with alcohol/switch cleaner/brake cleaner, anything that doesn't leave a residue. Once that's fully dry, add a few drops of superglue and let that dry, or carefully heat it if you have a heat gun or lighter etc. Don't set fire to the glue is all. Or you could even solder the end, but in either case, if you make it too big, you'll have to cut it off later if you replace the cable, as it won't fit through the mech/cable outer etc.
