Lights - 2015-16 season (split from the 2014 thread)

Only charge them when you're home if you're paranoid/safety conscious!

Yup, I also put them on a cookie sheet so if they get hot I won't melt the kitchen counter.

What's up Gang. Lookin' to get into lighting on the cheap. Will start reading backwards from here…but any pointers right off the top would be great :)

Exceeding a 2hr runtime would be rare.

A quick scan…looks like SolarStorm X2? One or two?
Would definitely have to go with a different mount like you guys are talkin'…those O-rings must be a joke right?

Bar mount or helmet is best if you only have one unit?

Canadian source?

Cheers!

Buy 3, they are cheap and then you have spare parts if you crash and break something.

Bought the helmet mount from the light supplier, bought an extra one of those too.

I'd heard that the batteries weren't that waterproof so I sealed mine. Think that is detailed in this thread somewhere.

The orings work fine, but be careful they are easy to loose.

There is a guy in Metro Van who buys a bunch at a time and then resells. Look on the for sale board and buy and sell ads.

Mid-fat. 27.5+ on the shore?

how do you account for the thousands of people riding fat tires on snow and sand - mass hysteria?

Something like that, maybe a new age cult?

+ tires sure are not going to work well when you ride in soft conditions… the big tires are going to float instead of dig.

Sometimes floating is a good thing:

There are a bunch of fat bike frames (including mine) that can fit 27.5+, 29"reg, 29+ as well as 26fat, and by extension 26"reg although that would look weird.

With replaceable drop outs you could even keep the BB the same, or adjustable to your preference.

One bike to rule them all! (With 3 or 4 wheel sets…)

Mechanic east Van-ish?

Interior fog can be due to a water leak so under carpets is wet.
Or a weak fan.

I've used Bill at Main Steet Auto at 33rd [HTML_REMOVED] Main for years.

Past vehicles of mine he has serviced was a 89 Dodge van, 92 Jeep YJ [HTML_REMOVED] currently a 97 Ford van. (My newer stuff gets serviced at the dealer.)

Espresso Maker Recommendation

And of course, once I hone in on the best settings, I should be able to just leave it there.

Until your kids decide to adjust things…

roller blading on mtb trails

i think if the wheels where a bit larger and had some mini disc brakes on them so you didn't have to drag a blade/boot to slow down it would be worth trying out.

Not disk brakes, but they do have brakes:

Scalia

LOL, so after the comma is a triple negative, so that leaves us with a negative? :dizzy:
