I suspect the minus was for the -2 Celsius value only. -2 Celsius = +28.4 Fahrenheit and that is still cold.

In China I hear lately it’s been like -40 Celsius which equates to strangely also -40 Fahrenheit. It seems that mathematically it is a cross over point, so it does not happen but I think just at that one temperature.

I worked on redoing a rear pulley for my belt drive. This next time since I'm using a regular vee-belt that has next to no stretch I will only pop the belt on the pulley when very loose. I am devising a way to use the drop outs to have it loose and then snug all the way back in the drop outs using turn buckles. Then I tighten the nuts. No more cracking the edge of the pulley. I had an extra washing machine pulley from the trash so it is just labor and time.

OOPS SORRY, ...I meant 28 above .. Though last week, I went for a five mile ride in a 22 below fahrenheit wind chill, and that is why I was jumping around and acting like a nutcase...I was just so happy to make it back without freezing up....

ive ridden threw subzero weather, these lil motors can be a handful to start when the temps drop to -10 or lower, but once they get running, they run like a top. when the temps drop real low tho, carb icing becomes a problem.

what i did to my bike, well, yesterday, was start plotting out my expansion chamber. going to try to make one out of aluminum sheet from at work. going to have it sleeve onto a steel header and probably seal it with a short chunk of silicone hose and some hose clamps.

Got a couple things done despite the warm 15F weather. Found an awesome budget frame that is badass(review of frame) that looks like this:


So had to get a couple more in the balmy 15F weather:



Have a review on that frame, it was build for motorizing, only $160. Check it out over here.

This has got to be my favorite feature on that bike, left side dropout support, on a stock bike, they're listening...
