> steel cranks to withstand your intense workouts Finally! I'm so sick of breaking my alloy cranks. Are they cotterless?

I've been very pleased so far. Drawing 15A no problems from Ozito. Googling the part number, I think the cells are from TenPower, which...

No bike should be left under awnings. Alloy frame, and keeping the bike clean and oiled will help. But if you can't get a shed (Gumtree?),...

Thanks. I have a few paired direct to lights on the Hue zigbee mesh. Guess I'll just leave them that way. Any chance it will work better...

Thanks Limbot. Are you able to compare these to the Ikea buttons? Any advantage? $15 button:...

Have you used that old-fashioned caliper brake style before? You need to loosen the nut at the back of the forks, clamp the brakes on, then...

I think you missed the "electric" part. The $650 eBike would be no better components than this. But yes, as part of my eBike conversion, I...

Ignore Drakesy, he just enjoys shitting on everything. Yes, it has QR front wheel, so easy to put in a small hatchback, or large sedan boot.

It's bloody good for a Kmart bike! Check your privilege :) You could lose the heavy steel kickstand. Handlebars are also steel. Frame is...

Pros and cons. The Copenhagen has smaller frame, better brakes (probably) and threadless headset. But it is heavier and has inferior...

Be warned that the frame is big already, and adding a big seat will add to the minimum height.

You mean the brakes were difficult to adjust? Caliper brakes are always trickier than V-brakes, but a short youtube video will show you...

Thanks. I don't know why this gets a new post. djprima reported the $99 price drop on Sunday, but the website would not let me edit the...

You mean the trigger control? Some brushed ones feel nice, some don't. But good point - the brushless require fancier electronics, a...

How do you know it is "more powerful"? That is true *if* they draw the same electrical power, but you are making an unwarranted assumption....

Perhaps you were trying to cut it too low? That's not good for the grass.
25/05/2022 - 12:52
You are confused with Windows. Or Ubuntu, to be honest. Or Android. IOS still runs in 2GB OK.

That's a bit odd. Isn't the handle redundant on a double-wall glass? P.S. my Bodum glasses have never broken, unlike the Target ones.
23/05/2022 - 23:31
Like the above they, are very low power, and big spacing. OK if there is no other lighting.
23/05/2022 - 12:22
If you can afford this, you are probably too old.

replying as too late to edit. I cannot read :-( This Makita *is* a half-inch drive. Mea culpa.
22/05/2022 - 20:58
You'll probably want more torque than this has to remove stuck wheel-nuts. It is only a 1/4" drive, and you want 1/2" socket and a long...
22/05/2022 - 19:08
Makita is worth it if used daily for your trade, I guess? Certa sure is cheap - tools for a one-off job? Or are you better off getting...

Don't bother with these cheap colour bulbs. They say 800 lumens for white, but make no mention of how dim they are in colour mode. Hue or...

Cancel that comment about disc-brakes. They don't apply torque to the dropouts. Any steel forks are good.
