I put new front & rear fresh tubes on the BoXer.

The front tube had a big cut in it, would not even hold air for 10 seconds. So I just bought two new tubes and replaced them both. The old rear one will become a spare.

It's all good Curt, I've been awaiting this time for awhile, the fated day when the SD Stinger croaked and a call would be placed to Denver. In all honesty, I was going to place that call next week anyway, I was simply informed by the universe to do it NOW. Lesson learned, I'll buy a second motor, week after next. I'm all smiles right now.

Well, the new motor is in, and running. What a difference, this thing is a new animal! Ten times the motor the last one could hope to be. My speed record was 32.5mph, the new motor broke that with no problem, and the rings still have to seat. Once I'm done with break in, I'll really see what it can do.

Ordered a new #41 chain and a 9 tooth sprocket for the final drive to the 44 tooth sprocket.

Ordered my new Micargi Mustang from Khols for just under $400. Should be here by the eighth. Tanglebones really is deadbones now, the frame has lost it's tensile strength in a real way, sagging a half inch under my weight. I intended to give it away, but I'm unsure of it's safety, perhaps I'll turn it into abstract art...

Checked my air pressure and the tightness of a few key nuts and bolts. Checked the top speed 25.1, really need to put that 44 tooth back on. Cruised around town a few times. Wondering if its ethical to sell it with the old steel rims.

As long as the rims are true, ain't got rust holes and such, they're fine. Everybody has opinions on rims, but for the most part that's all they are. According to me, it's unethical to abuse any rim.

Engineered a decent chain tensioner. Makes a world of difference. I can finally pedal my bike without all the solid tension on the chain.
