    Bought this old Inspired Hex on a whim over the holidays. Been having a great time learning how much I have to learn.

    I got my Bike Friday Pocket Rocket last week and got a few miles in before it got packed in to the suitcase (that converts to a trailer) for my trip to Italy.

    Cruisy ride with family & friends on the Taupo Great Lake Trail over the weekend. Perfect swimming weather & the lake is crystal clear as usual.

    Man I spent a lot of my misspent youth in my buddies basement with us both trying to out do each other on one of those Model As
    IIRC it's an old school thread on freewheel on there.
    Here's Sheldon Browns info on them
    https://www.sheldonbrown.com/freewheels.html
    That's the best place to start.
    It should work if you work on keeping the chain line straight from the freewheel to the oar.

    Back in the day bike shops used to have a board with all different sizes and you could roll your own freewheels

    But it's been a very long time since I've used that rower,

    Finished the frame up 700c hybrid step-through build for the wife today. Very happy with how it turned out, and it rides nice. Went with a 1x8 setup to keep it simple for her. Rear brake routing on the heavily curved frame was a bit tricky, but got it all dialed in. Still need to fit it to her and trim some housing.

    10% grade climb up Mt Berico (with panniers full of groceries) to see this church. Built in only 3 months in 1428.

    Had a nice 65 mile ride yesterday. Yes, I got wet but stayed warm at least.

    I'm wanting to get back into BMX bikes after 12 years. Local bike shop has several 20" bikes for me to test ride but I'm curious about the Sunday Model C 24" and they don't stock them. I want to build a quarter pipe and rail in my driveway to play on.

    I'm 5'10 and 200lbs if that matters. Should I take a chance on the 24" and see if I like the extra room or stick with a 20" bike.

    Thanks!

    I had a great 24" bmx bike years ago and while it fit me better than a 20", it feels much bigger. For ramp and street riding, I think a 20" is the only way to go. If you are riding track or bigger dirt jumps, it probably matters less and I'd say go for the 24" if you really want to try it.

    Pivot Firebird 29. 170 travel. 4 piston brakes. 1x12. Crabon everything. Been into bicycles since about 1998, have only owned two new ones out of about 35. This is the second. Bought a used Trek Fuel EX 8 last year and then realized I prefer enduro and bike park to XC trail type riding. Really stoked.

    I just don’t see the appeal of threadless if it’s not something you’re going to slam the bars down low. I ride upright on my commuters and city bikes and a threadless means I have to run ape hangers to get the bars high enough.
