    Mine seems to be coming a little loose and thought this might be a good idea... I remember seeing this mod recommended but dont know exactly where to put them. If anybody has done this can you please post some pics and help me out. Thanks in advance any comments or pics welcome...

    I rarely use the white/clear ones any more, some zip tie expert said the darker colors hold up better in the sunlight.

    But this is a 2005 build.......

    thanks bikeguy... much appreciated. I will ride down to home depot tomorrow to pick up some black ones.
  4. I'm going to build a GEBE/Robin 35 drive system bike this winter. I don't understand why you have tied the spokes together. I haven't ordered a GEBE kit yet and have never seen one close up. Maybe when I have one to examine I'll understand. Until then, could you explain this? Would a stainless wire tying them together rather than zip ties work better because you could twist them tighter? I've seen a post where the owner super glued the drive wheel to the spokes because the wheel began to move, should I do that right off the bat?

    put the GEBE drivewheel on first then ziptie the spokes. It keeps the wheel from bending in high speed cornering. Also keeps the GEBE wheel from having any movement.

    Highly reccomended.
  6. Thank you sir. I will do this when I have my kit.
