I did it again this past sunday, 93 degrees, a soda, the bread, couldn't find any salt until afte rI got home from the ride, and 3 banannas and I was fine. Took me decades to figure this out, but oh how I will enjoy never getting another exertion headache again.

had the chance to ride a pederson:

http://www.pedersenbicycle.dk/

(probably one of the "stolen design" ones...)

amazing ride. The saddle isn't directly  attached to the frame, so you can't steer the bike by whipping your hip. you don't have the tight feedback from the ground, like if you had a suspension; there is none. The handlebar is pretty close, first had problems to get it going straight, but it was an amazing ride.

 

Next cycle tested was a nihola.com carco bike; first started out as a passenger, pretty fancy. The passenger sits in front of the steering axis, so turns feel a little funny at first.

Then changed the role, now as driver.  My passenger was around 90kg, the guy who drove me around first... The 8 gears Shimano gearhub does a nice job in this. Even a ramp of 4 % climb is no problem. Most of the problem was, that the gripshift was operating the other way around, so I hit the wrong gear.  It also feels a little odd that you musn't bend over in turns, since they're 3 wheelers. Took another turn with Maja as passenger (~25 kg), that time its almost amazing that you can go off speeding with such a bike, and she soon finds the safety belt and attaches it. The ramp up is next to 'not there' this time, we climb it quickly.  As she wanted to get out, she first doesn't find the release button, and the guy who sells them is amazed, that she found the belt. Then I try to lift the cycle, and fail... I guess its > 40 kg and I just can lift two of the 3 wheels.

That looks dangerous, cutting buildings and landscapes into letter shapes and then getting high up enough to take pictures of them.

Nice catch there.  I wonder what the military industrial complex is going to do now that we know?


I'm sure they are now scouring the internet for any remaining evidence.  These pics are protected by tinfoil, though, so we're all safe.

Has anyone here had experience with Danner and Matterhorn boots? I keep wearing out boots that were made in China. I hate to use my Lowa boots at work because they get wet. My Lowa shoes were made in Slovakia, and fit well. The old pair of Corcoran jump boots 9-10 years old are still going.

First snowmobile ride of the year.

Started off good, once I got all the air burped out of the cooling
system.

Got better as we got into deeper snow.

Made a turn for the worse when one guy blew a rod bearing. Then as I
was towing him out, all but one of the bolts holding my exhaust on
rattled loose and fell under the motor. :\

Will be getting the dirtmobile ready to race this weekend.

And the wheel. And there are two of them.
Tow trucks somehow manage to tow any make model and year of car. I can't imagine making a universal interface for abicycle wheel would be all that hard.

I guess they could have a problem with an old minicooper, or if i've got one of those vespa three weel pickups ;-)

meanwhile you can see more of trucks over here "that have one too" so they can put a car on top, and pull another, but I don't think they were used in germany at all 20 years ago...

and, the car is fixed with a belt to the pull device, which is not as 'touch and go'

the gravel would haev just settled and I'dhave to keep filling it every once in a while, cement I do once. done.
Sinkholes happen, may be a problem next week, may be a problem 10 years from now, it's just not worth the time to waste.

And until you've actually tried to steer that sort of thing you can't believe how difficult it might be.

Today ... I am aching all over from an afternoon of sledding with the kids.
I could have just taken it easy and ridden down the hill bobsled-style like most people do ... but I had to be goofy and did every run "skeleton" style (you know, that crazy face-first on-your-belly luge) ... it was FUN and entertaining but boy am I aching now.

Is the "Nihola" meant to carry another person, or cargo?

You operate this bike by pulling and pushing the handlebar:
