Look Keo Easy Road Bike Pedals - 6008090000

The Keo Easy pedal is ideal for starting cycling using automatic pedals, or for recreational use. Because it lacks spring adjustment it is very light - 120g. New KEO standard - We have developed this new standard (cleat and pedal) in a lightweight goal as well as being compatible with all the actual shoes on the market. The size of the cleat is a little bit smaller, but we keep the fixation point of the old standard which is a reference on the market. Injected polyamide body - The body is injected on a really specific material : high resistance glass fibre charged polyamide. This material is less expensive than carbon and makes possible a very resistant and light body. If this pedal has been made in aluminium the weight will have been over 170 grams. Height: Axle/sole - 17,5 mm against 21,6 with the old standard; to close the axle improve the power of pedalling. When coming from the delta standard to the KEO one, it is advice to adjust the saddle 4 mm lower. Spring tension cannot be adjusted. Cleat: LOOK KEO (new standard) bi-components - The red, the grey or the black LOOK KEO cleat still offers a large surface to maximize the power transmission. With two different materials: white part in Teflon for the shifting parts will kick out squizing and noising even in bad weather conditions, and the red or black part in polycetal to guaranty the strength. Fit memory of the cleat - A small black piece located and screwed on the sole will save the memory of fitting the actual cleat

Drivetrain Upgrade: Final Result

Drivetrain Upgrade: Final Result

The final assembly took about five minutes and I didn't stop to take any pictures during. Just slide the right side of the crankset through the bottom bracket, attach the opposite arm, torque it down to spec and then thread the chain through. Then I just put my old pedals on with a bit of grease on the threads.

The one major annoyance was that the new crankset has a chainline of 51mm while the old one was 50mm. This required that I adjust the front derailleur. The front derailleur is the only "brand Sh" component on the bike and like many of their components is a pain to deal with. Took about 10 minutes to completely fine-tune it.

Visually I would have prefered something with less bling to it. The crankset and chainrings were described on FSA's website as being "grey anodized." I think of grey as the color of my pedals or tires and that's kind of what I expected. Still, it's not like I would have bought something else had I known. The price was too good.

Besides, a good coating of dust will hide the bling factor quite nicely.

Also, note replacement tires since last set of photos. The old ones were not worn, but had been in the garage for several years before I actually used them, and the rubber was cracking.

Now, time to ride!

Drivetrain Upgrade: All New Components

Drivetrain Upgrade: All New Components

FSA Afterburner crankset, FSA MegaExo bottom bracket (with spacers), SRAM PG-980 cassette, SRAM PC-991 chain.

The cassette is an exact replacement of what was there before, done because there was some obvious wear on the smaller sprockets of the old one.

bicycle headlight review - Cateye HL-EL530

Cateye HL-EL530 LED Bicycle Headlight

Cateye HL-EL530 LED Bicycle Headlight

The Cateye HL-EL530 sets new standards in brightness by lighting up the road with over 2200 candlepower from one single white LED bulb. This power is due to CatEye's own OptiCube technology. Not only is this bike headlight bright but it is water resistant and has a runtime of over 90 hours. Make sure you see what's ahead of you and be ultra sure that night drivers can see you coming up the road. Highly water resistant Side visibility FlexTight mounting bracket Uses 4 AA batteries More than 90 hours of runtime

Fifty percent brighter than Cateye's HL-EL500 model, this extra-bright one-LED white headlight generates 1,500 candlepower thanks to Cateye's OptiCube technology that optimizes lens and reflector brightness. It runs on four AA batteries and produces 90 hours of run time. Other features include side visibility and a tool-free mounting bracket.
About Cateye
Founded in 1946 in Osaka, Japan, CatEye is the leading manufacturer of cycle computers, lights, and reflectors to cyclists in the world. In 1964, CatEye was the first in the industry to create a flashing lamp for bicycles, followed by their first battery headlamp in 1982, and the very first bicycle head lamp using white LEDs in 2001. The company's Opticube lens and reflectors make the brightest and most efficient LED headlights. while their LD500 remains the only rear safety light that can meet the rigorous CPSC standards for reflectivity.

1977 BMW headlight bucket - relays?

1977 BMW headlight bucket - relays?

I think I have a short somewhere in my 1977 BMW R100/7's wiring harness. Can you help troubleshoot it?

Here's the diagnosis:

New, freshly charged battery.
Ignition key in off position, turn signal in center (off) position, headlight switch in top (off) position.

1) Turn ignition key to middle position
-- result: parking lights come on. No other weirdness.

2) Turn ignition key to "on" position
-- result: headlight secondary light turns on. No other weirdness.

3) Squeeze front brake lever OR depress rear brake pedal (both have same result)
-- result: brake light comes on. NW ("no other wierdness")

4) Set turn signal to "left turn" or "right turn" (results identical in either case)
-- SOMETIMES: left turn signal comes on. NW. If this result happens, proceed to step 5.
-- SOMETIMES: Big plastic Hella turn-signal relay emits a low pitched, clicking/buzzing noise. if that happens, END OF TEST.

5) Set turn signal to center (no turn)
-- result: turn signal turns off. NW

6) Turn headlight switch down one to middle position
-- result: parking light still on. NW

7) Turn headlight switch down one more to bottom position
-- result (always): high-pitched buzzing noise from main headlight relay. Headlight does not come on.

Step 7 can be reproduced at any time. For example, step 7 could be done in place of step 4, and I always get the high-pitched buzzing noise from the headlight relay.

Can some kind soul tell me WHERE to start looking for shorts, and WHAT to start probing? I own a multi-tester, and have a basic idea of how to use it, but I'm not a wizard.

2011 Raleigh Alley way - bike horse whisperer

2011 Raleigh Alley way - bike horse whisperer

This sweet ride is finally getting broken in. I pre-ordered it Summer 2010 and had to wait til Dec. 22 for delivery. Then it snowed and snowed for months. We're making up for lost time now and ready for a review.
The basics:
I commute 14 miles a day and it seems tough enough for the mean streets of Brooklyn. It's a smooth, fast ride and totally lives up to my high expectations. Shifting, braking, handling are all flawless. Eight speeds seems fine for city riding. The internal gear hub will stay grit free and the belt drive will not need regular cleaning and maintenance -- good things for apt. living in a grimey city. I love the always there headlight and could add a dynamo taillight. I also love the classy little bell by the left brake handle. The brakes squeal a bit but I don't mind that heads up.
The fender had to be riveted to the stay because it rattled so much.
Kick stand mount - should have integrated kick stand plate.
The customizing could get a little pricey and/or time-consuming unless you or someone you know has the tools and know how. Thanks GB!

About Energizer
Energizer's leadership in the portable lighting industry spans more than 110 years. The company started in 1898 when Conrad Hubert, a Russian immigrant, lit up New York City with the introduction of the newly patented electric hand torch or flashlight. Soon afterward, Hubert began manufacturing flashlights, batteries, and light bulbs under the name Eveready. Hubert put his first flashlights into the hands of New York City policemen, resulting in high visibility and nearly instantaneous success for his product. Over the years, Eveready's technology team introduced the tungsten bulb, made numerous switch improvements, and developed spotlights to project the light forward. Energizer's commitment to flashlight and battery technology took a substantial step forward in 1982 with the opening of its Westlake, Ohio, research and development center, one of the industry's largest. In April 2000, Energizer was spun off as an independent company now known as Energizer Holdings, Inc.

city bike tire - The 2009

The 2009 Report on Motor Bike, Motorcycle, Moped, Bicycle, Aircraft, Mobile Home, and Other Pneumatic Tires and Casings: World Market Segmentation by City

The 2009 Report on Motor Bike, Motorcycle, Moped, Bicycle, Aircraft, Mobile Home, and Other Pneumatic Tires and Casings: World Market Segmentation by City

This report was created for global strategic planners who cannot be content with traditional methods of segmenting world markets. With the advent of a "borderless world", cities become a more important criteria in prioritizing markets, as opposed to regions, continents, or countries. This report covers the top 2000 cities in over 200 countries. It does so by reporting the estimated market size (in terms of latent demand) for each major city of the world. It then ranks these cities and reports them in terms of their size as a percent of the country where they are located, their geographic region (e.g. Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, North America, Latin America), and the total world market.

In performing various economic analyses for its clients, I have been occasionally asked to investigate the market potential for various products and services across cities. The purpose of the studies is to understand the density of demand within a country and the extent to which a city might be used as a point of distribution within its region. From an economic perspective, however, a city does not represent a population within rigid geographical boundaries. To an economist or strategic planner, a city represents an area of dominant influence over markets in adjacent areas. This influence varies from one industry to another, but also from one period of time to another.

In what follows, I summarize the economic potential for the world's major cities for "motor bike, motorcycle, moped, bicycle, aircraft, mobile home, and other pneumatic tires and casings" for the year 2009. The goal of this report is to report my findings on the real economic potential, or what an economist calls the latent demand, represented by a city when defined as an area of dominant influence. The reader needs to realize that latent demand may or may not represent real sales.

I learned a lot today:

1. Dremels are awesome.
- I got the Mastercraft rip off since Sears didn't have their Dremel-version in stock. 250pc kit for $69.99 - $10.00 coupon ... there was also a cheaper Jobmate unit, but I've broken all my previous Jobmate tools. I guess Mastercraft is a little better
2. Polishing needs big power.
Using the dremel to polish the rear peg mounts was great.. but for larger things, like the clutch and crank cover, it's hard to get an even finish. I'll have to look into something bigger tomorrow. Also, it seems like as long as there's black crap coming off as you polish, there's more shine to be had! Using your hand simply does not have the same results as a power tool.
3. Polish works like magic. I tested polishing one of the valve covers without doing any of the scuffing... it was more work, and required a lot more buffing, but sure enough it got rid of the oxidation. I probably didn't need to scuff the clutch cover, but polishing is easier when it's been scuffed--- I guess it's up to you and whatever tools you have available.
4. 'Restoring' vehicles is awesome. My bike isn't all that tip top, but I'm comfortable with it.. There's a lot to be done, but the progress I'm making everyday makes me feel more confident. I don't think I'm ready for something as big as a car (which sort of needs more tools), but the bike is a good starting point. Essentially all the work can be done in house, including painting (although we'll see how that goes). I like that aspect of the build.

What I accomplished:
- Bought a dremel wannabe
- Learned how to use a dremel (and how to not use a dremel..)
- Polished rear wheel (by hand, will use dremel tomorrow)
- Polished rear passenger peg mounts
- Polished rear brake lever
- Polished shift lever
- Polished (70%) clutch cover
- Polished (70%) crank cover
- Polished right side head fins
- Tried polishing rear valve cover.. works out, just need a better buffer

What's the plan for tomorrow? Well... I didn't get nearly as far with the centrestand as I'd like. I actually ended up just scuffing by hand, the accessories I have so far (for the dremel) seem to be better suited for smaller areas- such as refining the scuffing on the crank cover.

And LOTS more polishing... I'm still deciding on whether I should bother taking the valve covers off now, or when I do the carbs.

In a side note, I kind of like how the bike is starting to look.. shiny wheels, shiny motor.. ugly ass graphics. Rat bike.. sorta? I'm not sure if I want to install the Raptor fairing anymore, the more I look at it I want to clean up the wiring and just pop on a single lamp (maybe from a pre 84 nighthawk), but that'd also require me to do some definite work on the cluster (which requires attention eitherway).

a little more than halfway

a little more than halfway

I am running on about 50 percent of my usual speed—that is, I can do all the things above my waist. I still drop everything on the floor, and it quadruples the time it takes me to do everything.

But I haven't taken a single hydrocodone today. Not a one. I honestly forgot. It doesn't mean I don't hurt, but it does mean that relieving the pain isn't the first and only thing on my mind. Another good sign.

I start a Healthy Back Program at the gym next week, where I'll work out in a warm (92 degrees) pool and hang in traction.

My girlfriend's giving me a massage tomorrow (YEA!), and I am going to stop eating the house sometime after my sister's birthday dinner Saturday night and Serena's Best of Season rock concert on Sunday.

I am getting out. Thanks for helping and for understanding why I'm not posting much. And all my shots are uninspired.
