Default Re: Me and my bee

Ok, so I got the new roller. I got better speed and almost instant take off BUT it tore the living daylights out of my tire. I'm lucky I made it home. I may have to replace the bungy chord with a spring and turnbuckle system in order to fine tune the tension better. And I have the answer to anyone asking if it does better in wet weather. That answer is a difinitive no way in ****. I hit a puddle and it spun like a whirling dervish. I replaced the tire today and I have to re adjust the whole thing.
I knew what I was getting into so I'm not complaining. But I just saw a nice old Honda express on CL and I thought how wonderful it would be to just twist and go.
I'm gonna futz with the bee a little more but if I find its not working out for me I'm afraid it's going on CL.
I have a need for slightly increased speed
