Rob had the same experience as I had with the jacket of my bicycle chain lock. But I put a quote of Rob in practice : never travel without Duct tape ! So now the paint on my Bullitt is protected by the Duct tape around the padlock and chain.
My favourite magazines !
Every now and then there is someone who wants to show the difference. And the idea is so simple, that it’s being copied easily. I wonder how many photos were taken with this setup … The first one was taken in the Netherlands, (I think in Amersfoort) for the ENWB. A here is a follow-upContinue reading “bus-car-bicycle-velomobile”
… gives me a sign that I have to renew my tyres. They did 8800 kilometers. and as always I couldn’t have done it without the help from a few drops of Dreft and the approving look of my best friend, Mo.

Suddenly I realize why I like my three-wheeled velomobile so much 😉 Here is a video of his doctoralContinue reading “So you think how to control a bicycle …”
I like everything about this film; the photography, the pronunciation, the scenario, the technique, the old machines, etc,etc.
… doesn’t mean maintenance-free. Six of the spokes in the front-tire of Marjan’s bicycle broke while it was standing unused in our shed. Bad quality, I guess. I renewed them with normal but tougher ones.

I locked my own bike up and then proceeded toContinue reading “The Neistat brothers are back …”
Funny little song and video; I liked it.

OpenBikeWorks is developing a nice cargo-bike. It got my attention, because their aim is to build the bike without any welding needed ! Every average sucker (as I am) can drill holes and play with bolts and nuts, just no welding please because that requires craftsmanship gained in many years. I expect that “Do-It-Yourself” willContinue reading “interesting … DIY-cargo bike”
