    A Lowly NEXT cruiser

    Pulled the crank after church today. Just totally dry of grease and contaminated with sand. Ditto the chain and pedals.

    Mongoose "Big Daddy" Muscle Bike on EBay?

    Wow, I'm glad. I love that place. They probably were closed for the pandemic. Glad he reopened. So many of the places that closed will never reopen.

    A Lowly NEXT cruiser

    Found this NEXT 3 speed cruiser at the curb out for the trash. The owner said I could have it. Aired up the back tire and threw a front tire on it. Didn't have a seat post but my Schwinn mountain bike used the same 26.8 post so I could test it. Shifts great. Has some squall and grind to the...

    Can you powder coat chrome?

    I think you could use a good adhesive translucent gold lacquer like used on stringed instrument finishes and it would look like a gold version of candy apple with incredible depth.

    Recommend Marine Grease?

    Slightly off topic. I had a tube of white lithium grease in my garage. It gets very hot here in Florida and some kind of separation occurred. Dark amber liquid squeezed out of the tube ahead of the more solid grease. Further it turned more tan than white and was extremely tacky. I had some...

    Best way to remove BB cups?

    I use a large wooden dowel. PVC pipe that's just fits enough to let you tilt it so it will strike the race also works good and doesn't seem to mar the parts.

    Reviving Track Racing?
