    Dyno Moto Glide - valuation

    Breaks my heart but I'm between jobs and forced to sell off some of my stuff. I've got a Dyno Moto Glide that rides and shifts good. One of the original wheels broke so I had a set of bomb-proof rims laced up using the nexus hubs. I also rode the seat to death and replaced it with a brooks...

    Night Ride - "The Obscura Mobile Wing" (video)

    The quality has far exceeded what I expected for a $129 camcorder. We were strapping it to our bikes using an Ultrapod II. Great little tripod with a ball head that also straps to anything pipe or branch like.

    Night Ride - "The Obscura Mobile Wing" (video)

    Recently the bicycle gang that I ride with conducted a night ride to patrol the neighborhood looking for wild pigs and mutant squirrels. When we ride at night all bikes are outfitted with some form of cold cathode light and a radio to play Obscura FM, our pirate radio station. When done...

    VOTE HERE

    If the voting is called off Spinman can still decide who he thinks should get his trophy and award it accordingly. The only vote that matters to me is my daughter's. As long as she likes the bike then we both win. :-) Hats off to all the builders. Very inspirational build and I'm coming...

    Josie's Skate Trike

    It's never really over because this trike is ridden daily by Josie and all the other little kids on our street. That's Mee-Maw in the background doing a safety inspection. Found the Hello Kitty tassels and bell in the dollar bin at Target. The boards are sturdy. "I like my big pink...

    Josie's Skate-Trike (update - music video)

    Re: Josie's Skate-Trike It's a SIGMA SD-14 and 50mm lens. The camera uses a different sensor technology and it's pictures have a different look about them. I also like the prime lenses. They're almost always sharper than zooms. I guess I'm an odd-ball when it comes to bikes and cameras...

    The Super Tanker

    Awesome! On some of the more radical customs like this one I would really like to see a photo of the builder or a test pilot riding the bike. It'll help us visualize scale and stuff.

    Lunch Bike

    I swapped out the parts I needed and then gave it to a fellow member of the Obscura Mobile Wing. He is going to repair it to a ridable state and then we're going to give it away to the first new recruit who shows up for three training rides. :-)

    Lunch Bike

    Backstory: Recently I sold my diesel beetle (40MPG) and bought a Tacoma Doublecab pickup (18MPG) and quickly realized that gasoline was too expensive to maintain my 60 mile daily commute. I solved the problem by using the Park-N-Ride lot 6 miles from my house. Riding the bus is nice. I...
