Still working out the mounting for the stripping apron. The strap & large O-ring you see at the top of the photo on the left tube are temporary for an upcoming trip. I ordered circular 1" D-ring patches to install on the top of the tubes, but I ordered red, and the ones that came are a bright reddish orange. I guess I will send those back and get black ones. Better a completely different color than a mismatched shade, I think. I think this "strap around the tube" thing will work well enough for temporary as the tubes are tapered and you can't really move that strap toward the seat because the diameter increases.
