    WOW! I'm surprised no one else has gone through this. I went to Batteries Plus today. Excellent service. They, free of charge, welded some solder onto the after market battery's positive post...

    I recently went through a similar diagnoses after a colonoscopy. The doc said I had diverticulosis which is a precursor to diverticulitis. He said to drink more water, eat more fiber and exercise...

    BatteriesPlus is an excellent suggestion. They used to rebuild my old NiCad 6v water bottle NiteRider battery. Right now they're a little inconvenient for me but I may have to make the effort.

    Non-drive side because it's cleaner. Mounting on the drive side the pannier is more likely to get soiled with chain lubricant and other nasty stuff kicked up by the rotating parts. And, if like me...
