Happy Tuesday!

fenderxmasbike-0231I went last minute Christmas shopping tonight.  Old inner tubes are good for lashing stuff to racks.

  1. That is smart, but now someone knows they are getting a toaster oven!

  2. Yeah, I always save those old tubes even with 10+ patches in them just for that purppose. Is that a DiNotte light? What do you think of them? I like the bell as well.

  3. Kinda ironic buying parts for your car (Rainx windshield wiper) and transporting them on your bike.

    Last time I did my brakes, I brought the rotors down to a garage to get them resurfaced and to buy some new pads. That was a heavy load.

  4. Yeah, hopefully the recipient wont see this! They’re getting the wiper blades too! I swear I also got them some good impractical fun gifts too!

    Yup its a DiNotte. I’ve had it about a year and a half and have had no problems with it. 4aa rechargeables, lasts me nearly 2 1/2 hours switching between hi & low power. When batteries get low it switches to ‘limp mode’ and its still fairly bright. I have the old version called the ultra 120 or something like that. The newer ones are supposed to be a bit brighter. Mine is bright enough to light my path in the rain, with oncoming cars and streetlights. Super easy on & off and easy to aim.

    This load was’nt all that heavy, maybe 25lbs total. Only trouble I had was mounting the bike! I felt so dorky! I could’nt get on the bike! I could barely lift my leg over the top tube! Should swung my leg around the handlebars instead.

  6. It is hard getting your leg over stuff, sometimes I wish I had gotten the step through frame on my breezer.
