    Thanks for the update.

    The thing is, is that the way that USB works is that you generally have some logic on either end that negotiates the current usage and such. So just converting from the...

    Hey, did you ever get the ReeCharge to NewTrent working? If so what did you need to make the connection? I want to do the same for iPad recharging but I'd like to just skip the Biologic battery.

    You can get Hammered Honjo's from Jitensha Studios as long as you want smaller then the 50mm - they are endlessly backordered. The lack of the 50mm Honjos is what led me to go for a set of Berthouds...

    I have an Atlantis with the Rivendell/Nitto front rack. When I went to install that it was obvious why there are no midfork braze-ons - it wouldn't have intersected the mounting points in the rack. I...
