For Mag in NH: simply turn your rooftop bike mount around so that the front of the bike faces backward. That way there won't be so much air pressure pulling up on the handlebars/fork.Like someone else said, the big problem is not pressure from the front, but the side-to-side motion that tends to pry the fork ends away, one side at a time. You could go ahead and file them down but not quite all the way, so that opening the skewer still lets the wheel out but there's still a barrier to a closed skewer.
BTW we used White Lightning on a portion of the TA and hated it. I never saw so much waxy buildup in my life.
When I raised my head into the slipstream, the mirror caught the wind just right and whipped off.Get one of the ones made with a spoke that lets you modify the bend to suit your glasses. Mine (a "Beer-View mirror, made by Dick Bird in Irvine, CA) would let me swing the glasses around by the mirror and the glasses absolutely will not come off of it. Actually it's somewhat of a challenge to get it off even with two able hands.
*Outboard bearing bottom brackets already wear more quickly than an internal cartridge BB.**Uh, where did you get that? Outboard-bearing BBs last far longer, for two reasons. One is that there's room for more and bigger ball bearings. The other is that there's less force on them since they're father apart. The wider stance on them results in less leverage up & down with pedaling, and less forward & back with chain tension. In fact, with a triple, the right-side bearing is almost in the plane of the middle ring. I'm on my outboard-bearing BB, and it has 27,000 miles on it and it feels and acts brand new, totally smooth and with no slop. I've never had any inboard-bearing BB last anywhere near that long.
