Re: is there any HIGH quality throttle ?

they looks nice , but is there any quality thumb throttle opt ? i would like to have the option to change grips by my taste , and not just plain black . You can change them you just need to use motorcycle grips. Throttle side has a larger ID. I use Magura throttles and love them. I change grips all...

Re: Frame type

I don't recall discussion on ES about bushing problems, either. But, our son bought a new full suspension bike and wore out the bushings in a year and a half, he did this with pedal power alone. Don't remember the brand of bike but it was quite expensive, much more than I can afford. He used it in ...

Re: Frame type

Yep, probably bushing problems. Specialized makes full suspension, mid drive bikes. Saw one on the trailhead the other day. It looked excellent. Price is high though, 5,500 to 9,500 USD. I've pedaled a few thousand miles on hardtails with suspension seatposts. That combination works very well. Add ...

Re: Frame type

That does look nice. I was just meaning that if you can't find it,, build it. If it's steel, then you can put whatever rear drops on it you like. they are easy to fabricate from some plate steel. I'd snap up that bike if I found it,, for the prices I'll pay. I hear ya. That's the nice thing about s...

Re: Frame type

Dirt jump frames from a few years ago can be very nice for a build. I've been using a KHS dj-200 for a few years now and love it. Started off with friction drive on it now it's powered by a rear hub at 2000 watts. Not super high powered but a very nice all around bike. I will say with the hub it mig...

Re: There was a fire at my house today while I was not home.

Damn, not what I wanted to hear. I'm so sorry.

My dog having seizures has been one of the worst things I've ever gone through. People just don't know until they have to deal with it. I'm sure Teddy would thank you for all the comfort when she needed it the most.

Again, you're in our thoughts

Her temperature would be actually higher than this list, because it's being reduced by the cooling towel and mat, etc. By how much, I don't know. I suspect at least two degrees higher without this stuff. 105.6 1245am (start extra cooling mat, etc, wet ears&paws) 105.2 1am 104.3 130am 102.7 2am 102....

Re: There was a fire at my house today while I was not home.

So 245am it's back up to 103.4, so I put the wet towel (with coldpacks in it) back on her tummy. Her ears and paws are still wet from before. Will have to keep checking thru the night to be sure it doesn't go back up to dangerous levels, and add cooling as needed. I have the other cooling mat still...

Re: Vinyl Cutting and heat transfer presses... Anyone ?

Oh, and I keep meaning to mention I've had good luck with Sunie heat presses. I have a Sunie and an expensive George Knight press. The Sunie gets used a lot more because it's smaller and I like how fast it heats up. Perfect for smaller jobs.

Where I live sign companies seem to be everywhere. I can't imagine that they charge that much to cut the vinyl stuff. What I would do - Call any sign shop. Ask where they buy their materials. Call the sign maker supply place and ask who is the best sign shop. Email drawings to the sign shop. I use ...

Y my cutter was a stepper cutter. Never had 1 problem with it. It was on it's own stand and could load full rolls of vinyl. You did have to pull the roll of vinyl to get a free loop of material so that the feed was smooth. Mine could do the pin feed vinyl or just friction feed. We used friction fee...

Re: There was a fire at my house today while I was not home.

The second stage (barking/thrashing) is MUCH shorter in the last few hours, but the seizure itself before that (stage 1) is no less. Siezures seem to be happening less often, but I have lost track of them since I'mnot really sleeping, just dozing between them occasionally. (though i got a lot more ...

Seizures have continued in clusters since the above, sometimes up to an hour apart, as close together as starting stage one while still in stage three. A few minutes ago I got a video of the middle of stage one, and into stage two, then a separate one of a bit of stage three (which is still going o...

There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the battery to the point that it would not be able to ship via ground. Allcell packs are overpriced and underpowered IMO.
