Here’s a bunch of stuff that’s been collecting dust in my tabs on Chrome. Yes, I’m finally using Chrome now. Take a step into robot world:
Saw that “Uncle Dick’s Bead Slip” stuff on Pinkbike, turns out Uncle Dick wasn’t the first person to think about this idea. Might have to try this stuff. Robots have trouble with rubber tires, because our hands are made of metal, and robots are strong. http://www.powersportsplace.com/parts/mxc-cs-8s?seid=pspse1&gclid=CPjM6si20L4CFZFufgodzJQAEg
My foray into car world continues. Rebuild or replace that oil pump, or just drive around with low-ish pressure until it blows up? And don’t say “why don’t you try running thicker oil,” yes I’m already running 20w-50 and Lucas Oil stabilizer. It’s a Chrysler product with 230,000 miles on it, and I’ve been informed repeatedly that it’s a bonafide miracle it still rolls with that sort of mileage. The owner’s manual doesn’t even include regular maintenance suggestions after 120,000 miles, because I think at that point you’re playing with house money.
The Golden Chariot. Truly, a glorious machine:
Here’s a classic Pinkbike World Champs race report from 2004 at Les Gets, written by the old Canadian Mike Jones that rides for Norco, not the new Welsh Mike Jones that rides for Chain Reaction. This is so old that Pinkbike was still running portrait-oriented photos. It’s important, so read it and educate yourself. Kyle Strait finished 3rd in Juniors at age 17. FACT.
Everytime I look at that shirt I laugh, which I think means it’s a good idea. Also, see: “making one-off t-shirts is really expensive.” I like that “$13.48 each” price, but something tells me we’re going to have trouble moving 100 of them.
