The bike is here by us now, to get the wiring cleaned up, but it is a total mess.
I'll tell him.
Where is this?

Is this not going to be uncomfortable when you move forward and back to change ride style as you go?

Unless the little bag attaches/detaches with Velcro, it will be a severe hamper to moving around on the bike.

I need to understand how it works, so a good idea to do it myself.
