Bike Shit
« on: October 07, 2013, 09:35:32 pm »
I do stuff with bikes, I'd like to do more.

So this will be my thread for such.

Plans:
-Ride through as many days this winter as possible.
-Turn my geared mountain bike into a single speed because
   A)It's a piece of shit and the gears are individually pieces of shit
   B)I prefer single speed for a number of reasons that other bike jerks have gone lengths to describe.
-Learn to weld to create a cargo bike from spare bikes.
-Attach a ski to a bike somehow.

This is my baby, just bought it at REI for half off clearance. Always buy bikes in the fall, yo.


I've got some studded winter tires on there, and some polar handlbar glove bag thingies. Gift from the wife.

I am ready for winter ya'll.

Sweet bike, bro!

I've backed off biking and am back to walking for the time being, because my campus is too close for biking to really be any actual exercise.

That's the one that's getting the motor. Turns out I ike gear thingies and grease.

I'm just trying to decide if I should go witha cheap Chinese gas motor or hunt down a Japanese or American one.

I do about 10 every day minimum, often 20-30 per pay depending.

This new, all by itself, is faster than the roadmaster POS or my wife on her road bike. Or pretty much anyone in the universe on anything, exponentially.

It's also the first bike ive ever owned that's sized right for me. I think that has something to do with it.

Neither.

Buy a cordless drill.
