Could be worse, you could be sitting in the back of a 145…


also, could be spirit….

Felt terrible and glad I wasn’t involved. The driver and trash men both treated us to a stream of invective as they drove off.

Wow.

What's this about you cruising along at 35 mph? All this talk about old and slow. Can't BS this BS'er.

There were about 12 of us old crumbs and we were winding up for a big customary sprint.

I proposed it to my wife so I could get it later.

My wife likes the idea of getting out with me and the kids, and a motor would certainly help extend the feasible range a bit.

I kind of like the idea of a utilitarian ebike for myself, for running to pick up groceries or beer or whatever, but other things are higher on the list.

I may have to post this in “bicycle mechanics” but will start local. I have a Williams 38 crabon wheel that is 10s but would like to convert to 11s if possible. Williams wheels is defunct. Any idea how to find a compatible freehub body? See pics below:

100 degrees today so some of us drove to the coast and rode on PCH. 50 miles and it wasn't too hot there and we stopped at a place on the way back and I split an order of chili fries with a friend.

And you're sure that it's not 11-sp compatible?

I don’t think so because the 10s cassette fits perfectly with just the small (0.8mm?) spacer on the bottom. I believe I need 1.8mm for 11s.

I hope I am wrong but suspect it’s 8/9/10 and not 11.

ps where did you find that???

I'm good there. Mine doesn't see the benefit of ebikes, and believes it takes away from the fitness aspect of riding.

She does see the benefit for those who otherwise cannot get out and ride.

Sometimes the discussions just take a while to complete. I'm shooting for my birthday next year.

Drop her more often and she'll see the benefit. :innocent:

My rides with her are no drop. I still have a libido that needs satisfying from time to time.

No interest from LSS either. She does look at Nordic Tugs with a certain interest, though.

Come on, now - you just have to avoid dropping her the week before your bday and your anniversary. :innocent:

But look at you, you lucky dog!
