I hear that they only work in the northern hemisphere. South on the equator, they become “self-loosening” due to the coriolis effect.

I love that this is an imaginary product that you can actually buy; all proceeds go to the Rails to Trails Conservancy. Very spiffy. I should get a round tuit or three, I have bikes to assemble! Just as soon as I get around to it.
