Re: Water ballooning incident just now!!!!!!!

Get license number. Call *DWI. I have done this twice in Colorado springs. The owner of the vehicle gets a phone call. Then the driver gets a visit. If multiple of these against the same vehicle, you have a good court case. The Idiots can stop picking on Bicyclists, or face some serious payback. d

Re: Charging nimh battery

did it overheat when charging to 26v?

Re: Tires

gave up (too late) on my old worn out slick 2.15 Big Apple that I crashed on due to NO tread left. Were you riding on sand or something? The slicker the tire, the better the grip on pavement. That's why most race vehicles use slick tires on paved surfaces. Tread only helps your traction when the su...
