Re: Condition of Gate Road by Exodus

[quote="BBadger"]Maybe they teleported all the shittiness off the main playa to the gate road instead. I was amazed by how every bit of the gate road was so shitty compared to that near-perfect playa. Then again, that 9:00 side of the city had some foot-deep potholes in some sections. What the hell ...

Re: Condition of Gate Road by Exodus

We saw idiots in RVz speeding thru whiteouts and bikes being drug behind trucks after getting bounced off the racks. Could be worse. Could be raining.

Re: Bike kickstand design: The Playa Bike Foot

And if your bike falls over anyway may as well leave it down. I run 2 leged kick stand and it mostly works. A tennis ball takes up too much space that my big ass boots need to pedal.

Re: Bikes on the Playa

Always bring a bike you LOVE to ride. And lock that sucker down every time you walk away from it. Min security is enough, BRC is not NYC. I have used handcuffs on the rear wheel, if you lose your key any cop or leather daddy will have one. Last burn I used a 4 position up down left right master comb...

Re: Service Dog on the Playa?

O HELL NO. Dogs have NO place at Burningman. Nor do horses cats ferrets or hamsters. If you really need a service animal I think you ought to just stay home. I also think children < 12 should pay full price.

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

BEST thing is lock and label. Whatever lock is prob fine. BRC is not NYC. 20017 burn I used a short SS chain covered by a tube with a master key less lock. Down/up/right/left NOT a dial combo. Minimum security that wouldn't keep your bike a half hour in SF. If you label with your name camp name and ...

Re: Handcuffs as a bike lock?

YES handcuffs work just FINE. Burningman is NOT NYC or SF, minimum security is fine. NOBODY is hauling around 6 foot bolt cutters. Most bike theft is just hop ons. I like tha fact that most handcuffs are keyed alike and all the LAW has a key or any kink leather daddy. If you lose your key just ask a...

Re: Riding my bike from Los Angeles to Burning man

I think that riding a bike to the Burn is pretty selfish. SOMEBODY is going to have to cary all your water food and STUFF.

Re: playa bike care

BEST THING is to take it in for servicing at your local bike shop pre burn and NEVER ride it with under inflated tires.

#1 MOOP item F/X

EZ fix for #1 MOOP item. Cigarette butts. Zip tie a PBR [ Or whatever aluminum.] can to your handlebars. Just punch a hole in can side below the drinking hole and zip tie it to your bars.[ [ I zip mine to the brake cables. ] It's almost always with you and big enough for the whole burn. As long as y...
