    Geezer build, hello excellent Theophilus

    In spite of the name, the Moscow is made by a German company, the fat tire version Is called the Aspen. (same pricing) NCM names all their bikes after cities, & I guess they wanted the Russian market. I bought the Moscow, but would recommend the Moscow+ or Aspen + if you need more suspension &...

    The Green Room

    The packaging industry must change, but only legislation will make that happen. There´ś too much money in fabricating trash. Packages must become standardized & reusable, with a stiff deposit charge to insure that they are. We cannot continue to defecate in our nest the way we have been.

    There will always be a need for petroleum; It´s too valuable a resource to just burn promiscuously.

    Are we getting suckered by online eBike companys?

    I have the same mirror, but eyes in the back of my head still would be better. You still get a blind spot on curves, drops & rises. Gotta be super-cautious; itś a jungle out there.:eek: I´ve never had an attention span like that. I´m quite certain I´ve had at least 100 different jobs,(at...

    Are we getting suckered by online eBike companys?

    People will ride what they can afford. Back when only the rich could afford automobiles, Henry Ford came up with a durable car for $650. By 1921 he was the richest man in America.

    NCM Moscow Das Kit L7 code to modify setting

    This could be useful, I didn´t need the code to change from kph to mph which effectively removes EU limits.

    "Observations from a UPS Driver" (aka some light 'Rona' humor)

    I dunno if I could top that?? It is the 7th inning now, & things have grown markedly weirder. I´m not overly confident that any of us will survive. It´s October, & if trump doesn´t self destruct in the next few days, things are looking good for Steve & Mary. Gotta run to the corner for some...

    Flat tire of Moscow

    That sort of tube has been around a while, though the Huffy is an improvement with the male/female connection. I think it´s really a temporary fix. not meant for long term. If you are big like I am, tire pressure is critical, too much or too little will get you flats. I´ve gone to slime tubes &...

    2020 to 1930 Stock Market Analogue

    So many people can not be satisfied with enough & so wind up losing what they have in the struggle to get more. Greed is deadlier than C-19 by far & causes far more suffering.

    My bored random eBike thought of the day

    We´re panicked & turned the nation upside down over C-19´s having killed less than 1/10th of 1% US population.... Meanwhile animal populations have declined globally by 68% since 1970. So many creatures that were common around here when I first came have disappeared. We are such a selfish species.

    A tale of woe on a rainy day...

    Have had similar experience with ´valve bleed´, that nebulous leak you can never find. Some valve cores can be microscopically deformed. I pull the core & replace it with one from an old tube & crank it home with just a dab of Threadlock blue.
