    Crappy news @trail_head – I hope you heal up quick!

    @nick-boers with the KMs you put in during the week I’m surprised you aren’t a 1 man team. See you there!

    We’ll just make him do the first lap 😉

    Rode one of these bikes at BestFest @ Buckwallow a few years back, everyone tried and no one could do it.

    I don’t have studded tires anymore, but have my MTB or a cross bike.
    I’d be interested in joining the fun.

    For the city bike – to be completed – move old road bike wheels over and convert from 6 speed to 8/9 speed. Any one got a Shimano long cage rear derailure they can part with? LX, XT, XTR it just has to work.

    Graham – I’m pretty sure I have a RD for you – need any other parts for it I should keep an eye out for while i rummage the parts bin?

    I have a CycleOps Fluid2 and it serves its purpose, but have never tried anything else so it is hard to compare. Talking to all the guys around the office, the consensus seems to be that fluid trainers have a better “road feel” than mag trainers.

    That’s a pretty good deal. I modified my own with my milling machine. The hard part was finding a 26mm socket without having to order it from Snap-On. Sears and Can-Tire don’t carry 26.

    I’ve been getting my odd-ball large metric sockets from Princess Auto. They have a decent selection of them and sell individually.

    My 26mm came from Lowes, but they can indeed be tricky to find. The 28mm was particularly tough to get. In the case of a 32mm socket, it might be easier to find a 1 1/4 socket, which is what I’ve been using (works out to 31.8mm). However, if I can get a pre-machined one for $20 with a 6-point head, I will be doing that in the future without question.

    I got mine from McMasterCarr – it was $12 or something like that.

    Is everyone using studded tires on the rides already? also if the ground is frozen but no snow fall, would studs still be used?

    I didn’t use stud on the bike last night – and didn’t have any issues. That might change as we get more into winter.
    Studs are fine on frozen dirt, and then you have them in case you come across frozen runoff.
    Unless you have 2 wheelsets, one setup for studs and the other normal, it probably isn’t worth the hassle of switching around (not that it is really all that hard, but I’d rather be riding than doing tire swaps)
    I’m sure Trailhead can provide more insight, he has more years of studded tire experience than i do.

    Sweet ride last night – the little bit of snow made for a fantastic night ride.
    We didn’t even need to turn on our lights the whole night!

    I’m hoping to ride the Don tonight. I’ll split some fuel for the Rocket, monitor the ground and make a call on trail conditions around 6pm.
    Like Mess says; if we get some snow it could be a magical night.

    If the trails don’t work out, My backup is Joyride with Ben, Lisa and the Betty’s.

    Keep us updated – Joyride should work for me as well, but dirt is ideal!

    I think tonight might be a lil sloppy. The time to ride is now!

    Isn’t it cold enough to keep the ground frozen?
    Also, the chance of <1cm of snow scheduled for 4pm-6pm, might make it magical in there 🙂
    Essentially, I am hoping to ride because it has been too long.

    I believe @lostkiwi has build his share of frames over the past few years – he might be able to provide some insight.
    I don’t know if he still frequents RFG or not, but people on here know how to get a hold of him.

    While I’m sure it would be awesome on trails, I echo some of the same hesitations mentioned above.
    Where I think this design is of great benefit, is in the commuter sector. When I think of e-bikes, this is what i think they should be, not those silly scooter style ones that I personally can’t stand. I believe all e-bikes in Germany (if not other places in Europe) by law can only provide power assist while the rider is pedaling, this is a much better direction for the e-bike market to go, than the direction it is currently heading, the e-scooters, they should be labelled differently from a legal standpoint.
    I’m happy to see this type of technology starting to show up in the Canadian market, there is still hope!
