Anyone ever extended the fork neck?

So the forks I originally wanted to use are too short for the frame. I think of things like another piece of pipe bolted at the end, but that sounds like the sort of thing where you outsmart yourself. The junk forks it came with gotta go, not sure anything like this would fit. (If they do, are these...

I know I have dealt with that, but I haven't bought on lately. But if they're SHOWING that, don't question it.

Anyone Know How to find Missing Files on a Mac?

This is an external drive to use on both Mac and PC. I just noticed a bunch of a particular type of file are gone, most of the drive is there but predominantly important things are that one type of file. There's numbering sequences 1 thru maybe 9 with just the 5th or just the 9th present. Of course ...

I find it very hard to follow any diet. . . . Yeah, I just like eating. I'm way too good at it. If you get Frosty, Heidi and Frank, the Frosty has supposedly lost some serious tonnage. In the last few weeks he was saying over 60 pounds. No new pictures and it's radio, so no PROOF. http://www.fhfsho...

Re: NEV/LSV in Your State?

You were responding to the trip I made that was parobably 8mph on a Currie, at 25 it would have been a half hour. Since you said 25mph wasn't bad I was mentioning what I could possibly throw together.

Re: NEV/LSV in Your State?

Oh, missed that response. The particular 12 mile trip I could have made on 35mph or less streets, except an NEV car wouldn't fit in my trunk when I got there. My MX650 hopped up, doing 30, 12 mile range. I might make weight but there's no room for the batteries on that thing.

Re: 48v mild hybrid systems?

Are we missing the big print here? Mild hybrid means the battery doesn't drive the vehicle fulltime. Or even much of the time. People have much to say about using the 12v lead acid car batteries other than as intended, what might the issues with the mid hybrid batteries be? A123 was touting the abil...

Re: Advice on motor/conversion kit for first timer.

My first advice is that if you want to spend less than what the minimum bike would cost, wait until you can afford the minimum bike. My first conversion was the 450w Currie kit, didn't make for much of a bike even if it worked fine for what it was. Me weighing considerably less than you at the time....

Why is it a person who would refuse to be called a Fascist (I wouldn't want that either) will conflate socialism with despotic communism? Umm, a person would refuse be to called a fascist if he wasn't a fascist, so that's to be expected of any nonfascist. Meanwhile, communism IS a form of socialism...
