Re: Flame effects for mutant bicycle (approval/licensing)

I get an official 'Flame Effects' sticker for my pedal trikes by going to the DMV night time check, they have a guy doing flame effects inspection. Things he looks for are a fire extinguisher, 1/4 turn shutoff valve (separate from the tank valve), no soldered fittings (use flared, threaded, or compr...

Re: 2016 Map and street names: Now with parking

I should add that there is no J (with rare exceptions) or K in the Italian alphabet they say, heheh.

Re: Bike Builders Unite

Booooo on bike stealers! Hope you still get a cool beast project going, maladroit. Since you still have one, a trike or sidecar? Oh and if anyone is thinking of getting the 7-speed Dolo also spring for the mega-range 7-speed freewheel and do a swap-in so you have an awesome low gear you will love.

First is the minimum hub width I can use for 4-inch rims. The rear axle that came with the trike conversion kit will accommodate up to 65mm hubs. Can I get away with that size hubs with 4-inch rims, or do I have to go with 100mm hubs and have a longer axle fabricated? This is my first foray into bi...
