Making from soap base? it dangerous?
There was a relatively scientific paper written about the advantages of heavy bikes versus light bikes but can't seem to locate it right now so I'll give you some personal experience instead only because I enjoy telling the story One of my favorite things to do is to hop on one of my 40 year old vintage racing bikes donning a t-shirt and cutoffs and an old Bell helmet and go trolling for those groups of riders that are on $5000+ bikes, wearing $300 worth of clothes. In less time than you think (and MUCH less time than they would think) I attach myself to their pace line. After they notice me, I am shortly at the front of the pack and am the subject of all kinds of jokes and off-color comments. So, once at the front of the line I start to increase speed and in less time than you think (and in a way that they could never fathom) am broken away from the group. Despite their greatest efforts they never catch up. These lines are generally made up of 20-something young studs that despite their appearance really don't know how to ride fast and are convinced that lighter and more expensive is better. That is, of course, until they discover that a 53 year old guy on a 29 pound bike just crushed them. I will admit that as I get older these riders get crushed a little less so maybe I'll start riding, um, one of my 30 year old racing bikes instead. Buy a bike that you like. Forget about weight unless you race. Make sure that the bike fits you and is well maintained. Don't worry about the latest and greatest unless you have a need to be a poser. Then, shut up and RIDE!
it must be in reboot mode. the main box that connects all the alarms together needs to be reset i think. or mayber its just a power surge blew something in it
Three things: Fully charged world-wide reception cell phone to call for help, a GPS device so I could tell theme where to find me a survival pack w/ weeks of food water, shelter, blankets, reading material, etc. (in case help was slow in getting there). The person? The President of the USA, because if he's lost, they will surely find him maybe give me a ride home too!
15kg is about 33lbs. Might be alright for a steel touring bike but NOT for a pure road bike. Even an entry level road bike should weigh at or less than 23lbs. or roughly 10kg.
It should be 22 lbs or under 10 kg.
