Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Just finished putting together the Schwinn Avenue with #2 Dax kit. #1 was "donated" to wife's bike in hopes of getting her outside. I haven't test run it with #2 yet. The bike is better than before!

Just uploaded video:
dual control demonstration

This time it has the stock steel riser bar (mtn type bar), with the stock 3x7 brake combos, and ambidextrous throttle control! (uploads to follow next day or so, hopefully a video on ytb). I used 2 Falcon friction thumbies, one running into the next, at where the cable end normally sits, and the 2nd exit cable running to the Tanaka. It works nicely! (used one of those little "conical springs" from the QR as a 2nd return spring just for backup). So I can cruise control or throttle up and down with either hand! More fun than model rockets!
