I’m in the process of making a massive bag, using two Continental mountain bike tyres. The outer two strips still have the kevlar beading, I’m not sure whether the added rigidity will be a help or a hinderence.
It’s a pain in the arse when I measure out the lengths to cut them at, but they don’t match up once I’ve stitched them together.
I’ve a design for a pannier/satchel floating about in my head- possibly scribbled down somewhere. This will be the prototype.
