I was trying to copy and paste this from my blog, but kinja is so buggy it keeps dropping parts of the post, so here’s the link. for anybody interested in seeing the guts of a NOS Soubitez bottle generator lighting system.
Like those. About those size, but has rider moulding. Does anyone ever make any of that kind of stuff?
For a few years now, I’ve been running WTB Nano Race tires on my old Raleigh. Recently I got a tear that was beyond patching and found the Nano is no longer available in 26". In fact, the only 26" WTB makes less than 2.2" wide is the same-as-it-was-in-1994 Velociraptor 2.1". I saw they were on sale for a silly low…
200+ human-powered vehicles on one track, four classes (basically, adults, all under 19, all under 16, and an Australian year 6/7 (~11-13 years old I think?) class) with some sub-classes. For 24 hours.
Carbon fiber, 22 forward gears, hydraulic disc brakes, very fancy.
After juggling two canvas bags of a semi-unorganized and cluttered state for the past two years or so, I’ve finally gotten the bike tools under control and it feels so nice.
It looks like you can shrink-wrap yourself in this. I absolutely love it. It’s just a few LED strips away from being a TRON bike.
A Mototracer. Had seen an article on it at proto stage a few years ago. Apparently they exist now. It had a Swiss plate.
Well at least there is one other idiot out here who isn’t letting a 112 degree heat index stop them from getting their mountain bike ride in. Hopefully I don’t run across them dead on he trail.
Got my first road bike today, a 2018 Trek Domane SL 5. Compared to my old bike, its stupid fast and light. It’s amazing how much 30+ years of bike design and materials advancements makes. The shifting is still pretty crappy so I need to adjust stuff still, but I’m so happy.
I need this in my life.
One of the fundamental lessons of riding motorcycles:
And expect more posts about it than Zoidberg’s Celica! :)
Sort of a recommendation for the bike-buying crowd.
Give me a break, it’s all I can afford... meaning free. Weather was good, so I finally got a chance to look over my new used bike; from what I can tell it definitely needs new tires and new inner tubes. The tire’s side walls are cracked, though I’m unsure if the tires are a special type of tire for the bike, or if any…
I went outside to wash the cars, but the weather was TOO nice so I hopped on the bike and poked around the right-of-ways behind my house. Still managed to wash one car. Anyone else ride (motor or not)/put the top down/put the windows down today?
Is not a good moment. BUT - I’d rather die of dehydration out here than of boredom in my office. Unfortunately, I have survived to make it back to the office and bother all of you with another post of my 0 HP vehicle.
I just got my dropper routed to an lovely Wolf Tooth dropper remote, gutted the hydraulic brakes of the shifters, and installed an actual 10 speed Zee shifter. Lovely.
