Re: Man on electric bike killed in Bucks county pa

Agree- I was just in a lighter mood than to discuss those particular aspects of crashing. But yeah, learn to handle yourself and bike, learn to fall, and be aware and alert at ALL times. I think the only time accidents happen is when you're not looking out for them, and/or you're doing something bey...

We should 'Ask Max'.
I seem to recall some experience in collision deterrence, and a cool bike?

Yes, you'll be the first and I dam well plan to be the second. They're still apparently just a little bit of a pain to deal with though. But it's gotta be 30% more capable than the little bht's, which already kinda blow 3x in similar dd hub weight away in power (and weight :!: )

Wow I hope it comes before long!

Maybe ask him about UPS or DHL (air). When I got quoted it was very similar to sea shipping when taxes and duties are added, plus at least 4x faster. The air mail has their own (likely more evolved) customs/duty processes.

Interesting information. Crocket, king of the wild frontier (jingle).

Though that's less 'trashy' than general littering...

True.

unless. . . zombies?

Or you could do a figuring of net value, whenever you eat your pets? I'm pretty sure I'd come out on top, seeing it's salvaged from some corporate monster by a modest passerby, and eating them only adds value to old Ralphy or Buttons.

Thanks; I'm really green on the subject, but I was assuming brazing was specifically suited for joining dissimilar metals?
