    Yes, I looked into that bikeway route. I postponed my Oregon trip until 2015, but when I do it, I'm considering the Willamette Valley route if I can get at least 1 other person to join me. I'll...

    Check that everything is adjusted properly, such as the spoke tension. Mine came with random, widely varying spoke tensions. Some spokes were very loose and others normally tight. Pluck the...

    Never before saw anyone using 2 straps like that to secure the tire into the well. Great idea. I ruined an expensive tire by using tire levers to muscle that last little bit of tire bead over the...

    Uh, Oh. My Mobius has developed a rattle in the sound when it is shaken.

    :( My Mobius makes noise like the microphone or circuit board is loose, which can't be heard with the naked ears outside of the case, but it's loud on the video recordings. It only happens when the...

    I removed the pole from the clamp and found that it is indented where the clamp gripped it. The plastic plug that I put into the end of the tube was too loose and too short to back up the thin...

    Correct. I had that as my Plan B if the pole was too bouncy. I'm sure the pole itself is rigid but the whole assembly still bounces more than I'd like. I did some more test videos today, on 2...

    I tried the 3/4" PVC. Indeed, it is too flexible. The end bounces like a spring for a long time when I pluck it. I looked up the Young's modulus of various materials: Modulus of...
