    Fulfilling a dream

    According to an article I found, Mr. Miller made a claim of Sovereign Citizenship in court. That was a mistake, as U.S. courts don’t recognize such claims. I’d say it’s likely that he’ll lose the lawsuit against him, and will never legally sell raw milk again. With any luck, the criminal...

    Anyone get glasses at Costco?

    When I ran labs, our average processing time was 2-2.5 days for finished eyewear, and <1 day for uncuts (lenses that the retailer would cut to the frame specs), but those were averages and didn’t include delivery time or our wait-time for the frame if it was coming from the customer. There were...

    Anyone get glasses at Costco?

    If you’re ordering progressive lenses online, it’s a real crapshoot. You need the assistance of a professional to be properly fitted, as even a slight error in placement of the progressive zone in relation to your pupils, either vertically or horizontally, will cause them to be less helpful than...

    Anyone get glasses at Costco?

    Independent eyecare professionals all the way! They use non-affiliated laboratories, so they will reject your eyewear if it’s not up to standards. If you’re using a big-box store, a one-hour location, or an online supplier, they are production and final inspection all rolled into one. I’m not...

    E-Bikes On Legal, Paved Trails

    I greatly prefer multi-use paths over roadways. There are too many drivers who are careless, or simply evil. This happened today, about two miles from my home; https://www.fox13seattle.com/news/pierce-county-detectives-believe-vehicle-may-have-intentionally-struck-cyclist-in-deadly-hit-and-run

    Rant, Complain, Just Let It Out In Here. Others May Sympathize

    You mention the gym. Have you been lifting, or cardio only? I ask because I started lifting again, with a trainer, about 6 months ago after a many-year break, and I’ve found it to be tremendously helpful in preventing (well, minimizing anyway) joint pain. It was bad enough that I thought I had...

    Show us pictures of where you ride your ebikes!

    I’ve ridden the Cedar River trail. A portion of it runs next to a highway, so it’s rather noisy. But, the river section made it worth it for at least one ride. That section is gravel, but was in pretty good shape when I was there. The Cedar River Trail connects with the Burt Gilman trail, and...

    Show us pictures of where you ride your ebikes!

    I’m really excited about this. The Foothills Trail extension to Enumclaw, with a new bridge over the White River, is actually happening. They started earlier this year, and expect to complete it in early 2024. When completed, it will run from Puyallup to Enumclaw, for a round trip distance of 44...

    [FIXED] Wahoo ELEMNT GPS Bike Computers Have Gone Mad Post The Latest Firmware Update, E-Bike Connection

    I’ve been frustrated because I haven’t ridden my Creo in several weeks, due to going on a cruise ship and coming home with Covid (It was a mild case, but I have a lingering cough and am still somewhat fatigued). This thread makes me feel a little less frustrated. 😂 That bug would drive me nuts!

    dog carriers, maybe trailers

    I’ve never seen those. They’d obviously not tip over. They wouldn’t work well for us though, as we often ride where the width would be of concern.

    Fulfilling a dream

    I’m impressed with your skills, and the effort you’ve put into this project. It’s cool that you’ve involved your kids in this too, as I’m sure it will instill some of your positive attitude in them.

    dog carriers, maybe trailers

    My wife bought a dog trailer that was rated by the manufacturer for up to 100 lbs. Our Rhodesian Ridgeback, now 85 lbs, was only about 50 lbs. at the time. I hooked it up to her Class 2 bike (it sure wasn’t getting pulled with my Creo) and rode around our yard to try it out, and the dog’s...

    EZ Bike - ebike conversion kit, $149, 40mph, 10 min installation.

    But..but…but…it has plenty of torque. Why would up you need a sensor?

    New Spec App?

    On my Apple devices, I had to delete the app first. Otherwise, it wouldn’t update to the new version.

    New Spec App?

    Sorry for the late reply. I was on vacation, and came home with Covid, so I’m still catching up. I owe an apology to anyone misled by my comment about the new app. It seems I was confused, and had been using the Mission Control app when I had that problem. 🤦‍♂️

    New Spec App?

    Yep. I tried the new app, and it dropped off 30 miles into a 40 mile ride. I was trying out the Smart distance management and it reverted to manual mode selection. I was going to try it again, but with others having the same problem I think I’ll stick with the BLEvo app.

    Is it safe to freely use the throttle WHILE PEDALING on a mid drive?

    You can choose to keep your Strava data Private. I do.

    Torque for Trek Allant 9.9s Crank Arm Bolt

    Though I haven’t ridden it in about a year, I have a 9.9s in my garage. I don’t recall hearing anything about the crank arm falling off, but there was a recall related to pedals not being torqued properly at the factory. I got a notice, but checked mine and they seemed fine.
