    Tie them either side of the handle bars - I've seen TT'ers do it when they ride out to an event ...... just don't expect or even try to go fast.....

    If it a "set" of wheels, does that mean there are four of them. Two wheels being a pair.:wacko:

    Could be a set of wheels for lots of things other than a bicycle.

    A set of wheels for a hydraulic jack, for instance, only 8 inches in diameter, but extremely heavy.

    A new set of wheels for your Scalextric? or your lawn mower? I think you need to be a teensy bit more pacific before I place my bet.;)

    Bah, cheating - he'll just put the bike inside one, and ride them home one at a time, like some sort of giant cycling hamster.
     
  8. I have done this alecs...do-able, but no filtering, squeezing between lines of stationary traffic etc. All the 'techniques' go out the window - and patience is a virtue (or she's driving the Clio convertible that you are stuck behind...frightened to dink your wheels or her car!;)

    Time it takes.

    bah, got talked out of tieing them to the rucksack by a cycling colleague. it was very hot though, so i left the rucksack there as well, riding home competely unladen.
     
  10. I forgot to say that I tied mine to the rucksack with inner tubes - nice and 'giving & protective'.;)
