WELL Rans Recumbents, Randy Schlitter (Brother of Bacchetta’s John Schlitter) has just released a photo of their new 700cc High Racer, Thumbs up that sports an aluminum frame. Here’s the original photo at the Facebook post. (Log in may be required) While aluminum frames don’t really float my boat; Sleepy smile you can at least mount it easily on a bike stand; unlike a CF (Carbon Fiber) frame bike, you have to use a special cradle for. Disappointed smile Which by the way, is still not recommended by any CF manufacturer. Sad smile

Another City Government poised to embrace Anti Biking, Walking & Running legislation, within it’s city limits!!! :-(

I first saw this CHILLING story Surprised smile at Bike Portland Org. and decided to investigate further and I’m TRULY dismayed of my findings! Sad smile The following news story at Stevens Journal Com confirms my concerns. Apparently the local town committee of (Americans???) have come up with a GREAT idea, under the illusion of this being a good… law for safety purposes. A law (Edict) that would require running, cycling or walking groups to REGISTER their travel plans with the town or BAN them from use of the town roads! ARE YOU &^%$*& kidding me?! Baring teeth smile Is this town really in the United States Of America? AlienI wonder if the so-called Hull citizen committee has ever heard of a little piece of paper called the US Constitution AND the Bill Of Rights; which from the get go, The 1st. Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. “ So let’s say this progressive NAZI legislation passes… Now you have set a legal president; which only opens a Pandora's box, for more progressive controls… All blue vehicles, all green sweaters, all motorcyclists, all people of a certain race or religion or from another state or country, MUST register their travel plans with the town or bans them from using roads outright… WILL THE REAL AMERICAN CITIZENS (If there are any left there) OF HULL, WISCONSIN WAKE UP and STOP this progressive NAZI  assimilation??? Annoyed

Hummm, why can’t FDOT offer something like this…

image

ODOT to distribute reflective arm bands to keep people safe from bikeportland.org. GEE, what a GREAT IDEA! Thumbs up Too bad our own Florida Department Of Transportation (FDOT) couldn’t offer something similar like this! Sarcastic smile I guess some states CARE about their bicyclists SAFETY MORE than others… Thinking smile

Our SIGN for the day!!!

My fellow Grade School Friend, Nina posted this on FB and I just have to post it here! Gotta LOVE these WORDS OF WISDOM!!! Open-mouthed smile

OMG! EZ has Fire Truck Syndrome!!! :-O

ScreenShot00021


Surprised smileOK OK, calm DOWN; it’s NOT that bad of an affliction! BUT a little story is in hand about this Syndrome. Back when I was a youngster (150+ years ago) I was in serious LUST Devil(Young to be in that, but typical for kids, that developed a fixation on a certain toy) for a Tonka Fire truck, that you hooked up the garden hose to, for the fire hydrant use, with REAL water. I ate, drank, slept, dreamed about this toy forever! I died 1 Christmas, because it wasn’t under the tree. Then one weekend, my Mom said, we are going to go get you that Fire Truck! WOO HOO! Rolling on the floor laughing There was a Heaven on earth! We arrived at the toy store (Remember those?) and there it was! My Mom went and looked at other things and happen to show me this tin roller coaster toy; that totally consumed me for the moment! Now do you want this or that fire truck? I was BLINDED with short term infatuation and opted for the (Soon to break, cheesy tin) roller coaster toy; instead of my Beloved Tonka Fire Truck! AnnoyedI NEVER did get that Fire Truck… Crying face Which brings me to the present time and my total infatuation for a Blue Carbon Fiber 2.0 Aero! BUT wait; I already have a unique Titanium Aero; why would I want another bike similar to that one? WELL let’s see, the CF is Carbon Fiber (Never had one of those before) Duel 700 wheels; which I have yet to experience on a bent (My present Aero is 26 / 650 wheel) and it’s BLUE! (My favorite color) BUT… like some women I have previously dated, it is a HIGH Maintenance bike. Disappointed smile You can’t just throw it on a bike stand clamp, because it’s Carbon Fiber! (A special cradle/ bike stand would have to be purchased to accommodate it) and You have to be careful, as it can scratch easily and God FORBID you crash or lay the bike down. (Unlike my BOMB Proof Ti Aero; which {By the way} I will NEVER part with) I don’t exactly have a ton of room in my little residence; so accommodations would have to be made. (Sleeping on the floor might not be so bad…) And there’s still another mistress… of a bike; a Ti V3, that can be had at a STEAL; that I would Love to setup (Exchange the 26 wheels out for 20” ones) like my all time favorite bike (Rans Tailwind # 5); but on steroids. It’s one or the other… Absolutely can’t fit 4 bikes in my little corral. Crying faceAnd finally I don’t really have the $$$ to invest in this beastie and add all the COOL goodies I want to on it. SO what to do?! I’m at that age now, where I’m still in good health to enjoy this sleek thoroughbred; but age is ongoing! Do I live out my life, without achieving another toy I lust for Disappointed smile or do I succumb to my desires and add this HOTTIE to my stables??? Angry smileREMEMBER what happen with that Tonka toy Fire Truck… STAY TUNED…………. Be right back (Don’t you HATE that, when it happens in a show or a post?) Nyah-Nyah

Breaking NEWS! * Bike HATER(S?) Strike Again!!! :-(

image

Riders find strip of tacks glued across bike lane on Marine Drive! YIKES! Surprised smileIt appears a bicycle HATER or Haters… have struck again in Portland Oregon! This time it was some tar paper with tacks pushed through, placed on a bicycle lane. Baring teeth smile I think it’s time for this (Majority of) Bicycle Loving State and city residents to start making some NOISE to their local city government and law enforcement agencies, to catch the SCUMBAG(S), before someone, possibly a young bicyclist gets seriously injured or killed!Sad smile
