It's lovely out, so I went for a bike ride.
Was just stopping in Port Credit -- JC Saddington Park, specifically -- for lunch when the ping noise happened, so in that respect this was extremely fortunate. Having it happen at speed would have been unfortunate.

I suspect the prior ride's outbreak of a single loose front rack stay, and consequent rattling, was no help at all (it did take me awhile to figure out that that noise was), but the fundamental problem remains the very long single support strut. The rack takes four stays, I'm not using the rear ones (aside from one that's a hack of a light mount) and maybe I can do something sensible with P-
Learning to weld is getting much more tempting, I must say.
