I'm pretty sure he is. I'm just waiting for people like him and kickflip to post in here. I'll be more buggersome once the new year hits though.
My day's ride: Went to vermont with some girl to scout out routes for my friend an I to bike down to MA some weekend, and all was well until her tire went flat and she didn't have a schrader valve so we couldn't pump it up and had to have some nice vermonters take us home in their van. The ride was really nice and I hit 36.6 mph on a downhill before I hit the brakes to let her catch up. I'll go for pegging 40 next time...
Anyone know how to get my rear rim really straight? It's always got the tiniest amount of wobble...
Not as cheap as electricity, especially since something that uses as little energy as bike can be had from small scale solar or wind generation. I mean, biking for about 5 miles/day is where the most benefit is seen for health IIRC. After that, we just incur the heavy fossil fuel penalty associated with most food production.
P.s. We only need to burn it off if we over eat and over the thousands of miles I've ridden my calves have stayed the same mas o menos.

So I will need to adjust the spokes to fix the slight wobble in my rim? Is it possible the problem arises from it being a brand new rim? I was wondering if I just have it clamped down a little bit crooked.
Perhaps... But, if we exercise to stay healthy AND ride our EV to get where we need.... Something tells me we'll be eating the same and paying for electricity Unless of course someone wants to show that it's better for one to not exercise and ride an EV....

Time is the best teacher. Unfortunately it kills all its students.

When you do the adjustment, don't try to make it all at one time and do it in segments, sort of like 1/3 of the spokes at a time. They all interact with each other and it's really easy to try to tweak something and over compensate.
You can use a couple of clothes line pins and playing cards to put a temporary reference next to the rim, to use for the alignment. I found I had difficulty when it got fairly fine, using just the brake pads. Good Luck
