Re: eBikes and Burners who Ride them

I had my Ebike at Burning Man, best idea ever. Helped my cargo bike transport up to 3 people (besides myself) at a time. I use the largest size Kryptonite New York U lock, actually locks up fast and ez with it, and takes a battery powered cut off wheel about 10 minutes to cut through, with a lot of...

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...

Re: Sealed wheel bearings for Cruisers?

If you buy a second hand bike You can bet on it, the crank assembly has Never been inspected or serviced.. The bike may ride just fine at home.. You will soon get a different sound coming from the crank .. Almost everyone thinks: oil on the chair will take care of the noise .. Take you new old bike ...

Re: cooling your tent or van

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...

Why do people think handling gas is so difficult? It's pretty much just like water. You just pour it in. Easy. WTF. You can even buy it at the Hell Station right in BRC.
