    Short answer, yes.

    A city can decide to ban just about any form of transportation. It would be political suicide in the car culture centers of the world. So don't look for it in any major city in...

    Hope you don't have hills. I got rid of my n360 because the efficiency was so low. Sad as I spent $500 on the hub and wheel build. I now have a nexus inter 8 hub and find it much better for hills.

    Ok, got it together. I removed the wheel and re-seated the parts on the hub, and this time it fit fine. Not sure what happened as I did not change anything.

    Now for the fun of getting the shifting...

    Actually, yes it does. Outside of the English speaking countries, helmet use is very low (mostly under 20%).

    I have given it great thought over the years, and would LOVE to move. My first choice would be Denmark, Likely in Copenhagen. Otherwise there is always the Netherlands and Amsterdam. Within the...

    Now I have a question of decking. I need it strong enough to hold my weight as I will be walking on it or may even have one large heavy item. Plywood it an option, but a HEAVY one. The trailer itself...

    I had a shimano inter-7 fail catastrophically on my way home from work one day. It started clicking loudly then just locked. I could not turn the wheel or pedals. I had to walk the last 4km by...

    #12 is simple, and #14 is workable. #12 is easily conquered by buying a cargo bicycle(the dutch do it all the time). #14 can be solved by either moving closer to work or taking a job close to...

    Honestly I'd look for a good set of panniers. It takes the weight off your back and allows greater freedom.

    I see the car as a just a tool (a dangerous one at that). Problem is many see it as a tool for every situation. Would you use a sledgehammer to drive a small nail in the wall to hang a photo? Then...

    I live just over a mile from 3 major food markets. If I am willing to push that to 3 I can add about 6 more. If I count small stores, which I never visit anyway(Too expensive), I could easily bump...

    At work I bring it inside. When out and about, I mostly lock to anything I can find. Few places have bicycle parking and the few that do it's not safe to use, either because of location, or junk...

    Around -25f (-31c), with about a 15mph north wind (and I had to go north), so around a -55f windchill (figuring a 5mph average speed). That's 5 miles, or over an hour in that as I slow down the...

    I'm around 240lbs and have held that for years. Thanks to riding I suffer far fewer health problems and have lowered my blood pressure to a healthy level (though none of that was ever a goal, or even...

    Ok, I bought the wood today and will start that part, but now for the hitch.

    I was thining of this for the joint, but am unsure if it would be strong enough to hold up to a 500lb load. I know the...

    I already thought of that. My brakes are powerful enough already, but I don't plan on going much over 8mph(I just want to get there, speed is not at issue) and the few areas I might go faster on are...

    I tried weighing a chunk of 2x4 I have here and figuring it as an average weight, the frame would weigh about 80lbs.. Plus screws and the wheels(x4). So perhaps 85lbs. A little heavier than I wanted,...

    I was originally thinking of wood, but figured it would be too weak and heavy to use. It would save me a bit of weight in one way as I do want to place a deck on it, and being wood, it would just be...

    Neat idea, but far too small. For my needs, it has to be 4' at a minimum and even that is going to be a challenge.

    I would like bigger, but I have to be realistic about what I can haul with the hills I have. If I lived somewhere flat I'd want a 6'x12', perhaps even longer. I don't want to go into what it will be...
