    Ugh... Too clean for my tastes. Throw some mud or road grime or something on there. Sterile-looking bikes displease my senses. :lol3

    maybe fill the jug with water and just lay the bike over and drop it a little. I'm seeing the cap blowing off and your bike burning pretty quick. With luck you'll be nowhere's near it. Without luck you either won't survive or wish you hadn't.

    How far can you go on 2 liters of fuel?

    Sent from my HP quad core Blackbird running XP64 on 6G ram with 2.5T storage. Like anyone cares. I peel tags off clothing too.

    yep, the 17/17 would be the commuter. I´ve the original 21/18 for the travel and some 21/18 excel for the hard work.

    No it wasn't. Plaka's math was bad. Two liters is a bit over a half gallon. 20-25 miles on 2 L is around 40-50 mpg.

    Either way, a damn long distance to push a bike. (of course, they are lighter and so easier to push when out of gas)
