Re: Elliot's Naked Bicycle Service, Piano Bar, & Much More 2017

Burning Man prescribes Self !! reliance .. If you bring a junk bike that I can not repair,, Stop your whining and walk the rest of the week .. If you know nothing about bike repair, some one on the playa will assist you .. BUT .. You must help your self first (before arriving) ... Bring a bike that ...

Re: Preventing Bike Theft / Finding 'Lost' Bike Ideas

And here I was thinking a simple bike lock was sufficient. For an extra $6-10 it wouldn’t be that bad. Initial cost on the network would be under $5k and some very low level power requirements on playa. The app development would be the bigger challenge but I may already have the resources required ...

I am scratching my head.

An easy way prevent your bike from being stolen - When your fanny comes off the bike se...

Re: eBikes and Burners who Ride them

I'm pretty sure the 5mph speed limit doesn't apply to human powered bikes on the playa. I wonder if it might apply to eBikes though. Maybe not, if Nevada code isn't fine-grained enough to understand the distinction. Electric assist bikes are limited to eight MPH in Salem Or.. That is about the top ...

Given that the Yellow Bike program is using the Huffy Cranbrook, and that they keep bringing them back year after year, and that I rode a well-used Yellow Bike at the end of the week and it still wasn't screeching or hard to pedal...what magic are they doing to the Huffy Cranbrook that even the wel...

Re: Sealed wheel bearings for Cruisers?

Yes, there is a sizeable gap. That may even be the bearing itself that we can see in the photo. Someone suggested a felt washer as a seal to keep dust out and grease in. I like that idea. But I suspect there may be other factors at play, such as sloppy machining of the parts. The outside race appea...

It would use more energy, parts, and you have more points of failure. I like the KISS principle but understood not everyone agrees. The single drip-ring is quite elegant in that it fits around the inner blue pad, which fits just about perfectly around the CPU fan. I don't know if you could fit anot...

Re: Sealed wheel bearings for Cruisers?

Does anybody know which sealed bearing to get for the Huffy Cranbrook? One issue I see with the huffy is that the peddle cranks seems to be 1 piece, not something that comes off? So with different (sealed) bearings, you would need different pedal cranks as well? I'd like to buy a few sets before he...
