    RRB member in need of help!

    As discussed in the BMX rule discussion page, RRB member @léocwc had all of his tools stole from his workshop. Leo has started a crowd fund for tool replacement...I thought it should be reposted in a more visible forum. leocwc tool fund

    My Oregon Neighborhood (9/7/20 update)

    I aired out some dirty small town Oregon laundry in the 'Plains of Armageddon' and 'Plains of Armageddon II' threads. Now for some of the more palatable pics of my neighborhood :thumbsup:. No bicycle, just bipedal. Standard disclaimer, pics are from a broke cell camera... poor quality. Went...

    Plains of Armageddon II

    This is the sequel to, 'The Plains of Armageddon' post :grin:. I've haven't been riding since late May. I was supposed to wait until four months after surgery, but, I figure 11wks is close enough :thumbsup: I took the Floval Flyer out to an old mill log pond turned park / wildlife refuge /...

Small town Oregon, in what used to be a timber county...there is still a timber industry, but it is a shadow of what it was. The following...

    Recovery recoveries...

    I've been in recovery from a surgical procedure the last couple months. I more or less got my driving privelidges back three weeks ago, and my lifting restrictions were raised to 20lbs. I went on a bit of a CL spree from then until I went back to work last week. As far as my wife knows, nothing...

    ISM 0003 - Nu S'cool Rail

    'failure to launch, pt. deux too' I remember the first bike I put together as a kid. It was a purple/violet 20" cantilever schwinn with flipped dropbars and a mattress saddle off of a road bike. I believe it would have been the summer before 1st grade (the first (Boise, Idaho) of six schools in...

    Big Ripper

    So, we have been having a bunch of construction done at the house the last couple months. As a result, my bike hoards, for the most part, have been consolidated. The unfortunate side effect...the only rideable bike I have access to is a $20 Raleigh Colt. I have a few NIB bikes I've not gotten...

    Stale finds !?

    Today's archeological expedition. 'Organized' this about a year ago...but, it quickly fell back to chaos again. So, this time I'm pulling the neon out and getting rid of it (it's been in there since ~2000 :doh:) to allow me to come up with a more practical storage solution... ...not fun...
