Step 2:

take 2 turns around the seat tube or seatpost depending on wheat is possible on your bike.(but if the shoe lases or the frame is too slippery,you can do it on the seatpsot and use the clamp on the bikestand)

step 3: repeat step 1 on the other side.


You can use this knot for brake calliper aliment, just make the hole bigger and slide it over the brake lever and tighten:

I you can’t reach the brake lever,for example if you work on a tandem bike or a utility bike,this method will work great,as long as you have it tight.
