used to be my bicycle, but I made some mods to it (now it's half bicycle)


The engine has over 5600 miles on it

I used a ratchet and allen socket to tighten the bolt until I thought it'd break. Obviously, some serious stress going on at the stem.
I thought the exact same thing as you, I got it for dirt cheap just to play with a bit more space around my knees, and figured it would be good for pushing the bars forward. It was set to 90 deg (hort) when i got it. I loosen the bolt, stem won't move "what the heck?" remove the bolt, still no, hmmm remove the clamp bolts and it comes apart in three pieces, the forward part is splined to one side, and the other side holds it on the spline. If it slips I have a much much bigger problem!

To be honest I don't like the feel of the long stem, probably do the stretch on the frame (ordered a tig welder today ) and go back to a short stem.

LOL, I was waiting to hear somethin about that. I hate carrying stuff on my back and I did not want to put a rear rack and pannier bags on just to carry my lunch in. So I found a basket. I think it is pretty sweet. It is all aluminum, has a u-lock holster, bamboo inlay to match my bamboo fenders. It also comes with a waterproof roll top bag. It is also sized perfectly to fit a six pack (fill the waterproof bag with beer and ice and roll closed).

Crud. I JUST installed my Wald quick-release basket tonight. Thankfully, I have other bikes!

Pimped cross bike used in town:


Very proud about these lights:


rear:


They work through the magnetos attached to the spokes, producing some electricity with lights
up the lamps, (LED). The lamps just flshes, the front lamp has a capacitator so it's flashing a
minute to two if you stop at a traffic light. These lights comes from Denmark.

The reflectors in the wheels and at the rear is a must here in Germany.

The reflector foil on the frame I added just because I had found them in the garage,
can't remember why I bought them, may be for the trailer?.

Very cool. I suppose the German's have the most restrictive laws that drives some of the best equipment available. My recumbent has a Schmidt Dynamo front hub or SON (Schmidt's Original Nabendynamo) with a Schmidt Edelux LED LED headlamp and a Busch & Müller rear LED light. Like yours, both a capictor-equipped so the lights remain on when I stop for a light.

Having someone tell me, "Hey, you left your lights on" when we make a stop at night does get old though.

I washed my bikes on Saturday and took some photos.

2011 Trek Rig. I built it up as a singlespeed with burley wheels and chain. I love this bike. I run a 22 rear cog which is geared really low but we do a ton of climbing on our rides so I'd rather have a magic gear to climb and spin out a little on the descents.

New to me Redline Conquest Pro CX bike. I love this bike and have been putting in a lot of time on it. We have great road riding in Redlands as well as fire roads and two track around town that can be linked together.

Photobucket

My daugther saw me taking photos of my bikes and drug her Strider out to the pool. She turns two at the end of the month and has had this bike since last Fall. We will skip training wheels thanks this bike.
