Can I pour fuel into the frame?
Hubby breaks out in cold sweat whenever I mention carrying spare fuel in jerrycans/canisters/whatever for my trans-africa trip.
This is probably because I spend rather a lot of time not actually on the bike, but flying over the handlebars / landing with bike on top of me / flying with bike but not quite landing etc. etc.
He is obviously having nightmares of me exploding into a fireball like something out of Charlie's Angels, which will be cool to observe, but since no-one will be with me to watch, it may be a bit of a waste.
Sooo. He mentioned something about using the frame as a "fuel tank"?!
He is taking the mickey, isn't he?? Is this at all possible?? Why haven't anyone done it then?
I've tried to google it, but searching words like "hollow frame fuel tank" just comes up with rubbish.
PS - and dont laugh - if it wasn't for girls asking stupid questions, you guys wouldn't seem so clever.
