can't wait to see what you do given i am so impressed with your hybrid --
your ingenuity in having figured that all out

will you make it to willow this saturday???

best always
I gotta get some rear suspension on my bike and some massively wide tires to roll on. I do not want to be limited by what size engine or tires I can install just because they won't physically fit the frame.

Actually my bike is more reliable than my car at the moment. Willow is outside the range of my car in the summer or I'd be there. My bike has more miles than my car since I've had it if you can believe that. LOL

I took a ride on my bike straight up Robertson through the heart of Beverly Hills then went straight up La Cienega all the way to Sunset Blvd without pedaling a stroke Sunday. La Cienega is almost vertical after you cross Santa Monica Blvd. It was a slow go but I made it to the top. LOL

Militarizing the road, one bike at a time, since 2014.
