Hey gang, I'm looking for ideas on attaching my cane to the bike. For those of you who watch "House", there is some kind of snap-on attachment on the right rear fender of his bike but never a close-up shot of it. I tried the Fox network site but couldn't find any info. What makes this difficult is that I don't want to drill holes in the fender. Would appreciate any suggestions or solutions. Thanks.

1.) WELCOME! This means we need pics of your bike...

2.) You ride a bike, and you have a cane. BADASS! This means we need pics of you, your bike, and your cane....

3.) To answer your most direct question, is your bike a pre or post-gen ninja? (pre or post 2008? Following from that, what diameter is your cane? Have you though about mounting a pipe down the length of the fork tubes to slide it into? To answer your question most specifically, I don't know what kind of clip they use for the Repson in House, but I do know I could probably make something like this work - a spring clip for the garage/basement organization section from ACE: Crawford Spring Grip Bar (Sg5w) - Wall Organizers & Hooks - Ace Hardware

As far as not putting holes in the bike.... That's gonna be a tough one. For this application, you really want something that's solidly mounted to the bike, no sticky goo, tape, or glue.... Hope this helps, and if it's insufficient, post up with ideas and maybe we can brain storm a plan together?

I had the same kind of idea spooph, but then I thought, oh, maybe he doesn't want to scratch his cane up too much. Using something like those clips would leave decent scraches on the cane every time he put it in or took it out of the spring.

But yeah, no holes makes this pretty hard to do.

Depending on the cane material, and the type of coating that gets put on the clips, it might not be ab issue (old inner tube stretched over the clip "teeth"?). We could get VERY creative with this! I think the cane is gonna get fairly beat-up riding on the bike anyway, most things do, including the riders... :p

Tez, he is talking about a stick to use for walking. sometimes needed for stabilazation in walking or keeping weight off a leg, foot or something like that. A walking stick.

I am thinking felted pool cue hangers ( Tight friction fit) that can get cut into lil sections and screw a hole through for bolt mounting. ... can anyone see what I am saying?

Yes, and brilliant! I knew that had to be other options. In addition to this idea, I was thinking of a maglight flashlight holder: Mag AM2A496 Mini MagLite AA Flashlight Mounting Brackets (2/Pkg.). AM2A496. Mag Instrument Flashlight Accessories.

If Remy could post back with the diameter of the cane, it sure would make finding options easier...

Guys, guys, guys . . . I didn't leave you. I've just been kind of busy. Appreciate all the posts about mounting the walking cane on my bike. It's 2.5" in diameter, anodized aluminum I believe. I'm not concerned about it getting beat up. Just need it to be functional. Don't want to drill holes but will if necessary. So if you've got any more nifty ideas, bring 'em on. BTW, I'm not House, more like 13. :)
