    Careful with linear regulators in this application. 48V down to 5V is a 43V drop, even a small current will produce a significant amount of heat (and wasted power). There are switching modules...

    I bought an old MTB bike for the winter commuting. That was more to do with tire clearance and fender clearance than anything else. I threw on some drop bars and stem shifters and am now totally...

    On my Michelin Krylion 23C tires I've flatted once. But it was on the second ride! Not a great start :P However, the culprit was a shard of class shaped somewhat like an arrow head. I'm pretty sure...
