Re: My Wife Sold My Bike

As far as giving up one smoke belcher for another, I've got no interest. My car has remained parked for over a year now. I do have something nearly the size of the Indian in the works, but a bit lower and aerodynamically sleeker, and powered by 2 or possibly 3 HubMonsters (whatever it takes to flat...

Re: Unprotected Ryobi One+ Battery?

Well I did give it a go, it ran fine without blade but when I tried to mow it ran then cut-out and there seemed to be more sparking at the brushes, the part cost $40 from USA and also brakes the blade, I'm cutting again :D

Re: Looking for fake engine and engine sound for E-chopper

there was a kids electric bike a few years back, that had two 12v cells in a plastic V twin engine shaped case. I seem to remember that one but there have been some better built bikes that have the ice look, the juicer comes to mind and there was another one featured here but can't remember the nam...

Somebody was once telling John Hillerman he was the guys ' favorite British actor. To which Hillerman replied "I'm from Texas." I was already missing him since he decided to retire 20 years ago. I've just finished watching an re-run of Magnum to come here and read this, I wouldn't have guessed Texan

He was stopped on the white line but I wanted to get some reason for his action but pulling up on his drivers side and taking his keys would have got a good reaction

Re: Found this very tempting bicycle frame... who's gonna do

On second look I see only rear brake and a fixed crank so slowing is done by resistance pedaling, personally I would leave as is as a fun pedal only or very low power assist, maybe a rear hub with regen would work
