Today, took the bike out on it's first distance ride. Did find there and back. But, on the way back was informed by a pedaler (as he over took me) that my rear wheel out of true. Took it home, adjusted, went half a block and lost the drive chain. Limped home. Went back to find missing pieces later, fixed it, got going again, took ride around neighborhood and one block to go, pedals start turning themselves and I killed the engine just in time as I came to a stop, rear wheel fell off. Missing a nut (twisted off cause the hub not rotating on axle) and again limped home carrying heavy rear. Now, bike sits till income increases and find a better solution. Any ideas? (Current hub: Huffy coaster brake, needed: single sprocket freewheel or flip/flop with 44t sprocket.)

Thnaks Dan, Bad Mojo is coming along.

The NuVinci Dev Kit Remote Display unit on the handlebars failed though.
Information overload I suspect ;-}

My handlebars look like this at the moment along with some highly technical explanations of the controls in the pic ;-}



I still have much more to do, and only a week to do it.
Sadly, the weather will not be very cooperative today and tomorrow.
That's OK, I have indoor work I can do and I need a little break.

Ordere'd Silicone tubes from SBP, cut the stock muffler and extended the tube all the way to the back, no welding involved, used the silicone tubing to attached everything back together, Ended where I wanted it to be just need to paint and fabricate some mounts to hold the muffler back there.

Next thing is to fab up another extension tubing for my daughters trailer so the fumes ends behind the trailer.

Where can I get longer the silicone tubings, went to home depot and my local harddware shop, nobody seems to know where to get it. I wanted to use the tubing to extend the exhaust tip all the way to the back of the trailer when I have the trailer attached.

EDIT: I was starring at the pictures I uploaded and I realized I need to cut those cables ..

Smoothe, I was looking in cycle gear but can't find these mirrors you got, been looking for mirrors that will not vibrate like crazy on my bike. All the one's i've seen in cyclegear doesnt have a mount either.

Thanks

I have mirror issues.
Share the manufacturer and part number of yours? E-mail vendor?
