YardStash II – A Bike Crash Pad

When we started remodeling our house last year we moved some walls around, and we have had to resort to temporarily storing some household goods in BluesCat World Headquarters, resulting in reduced square footage available for bike parking. One day, I made the mistake of grumbling about having all the bikes jammed together now, and [...]

ESGE Kickstand: Two Legs Work Better Than One

As I have said before, I am a Jedi Master of Sloth. Laziness is one of the few things to which I can claim Gold Medal Caliber. As a result, I must develop strategies which will allow me to avoid the dirtiest word in the English language: work. On my main commuter bike I replaced [...]

Commuting by bike through the winter has presented several challenges. One of the challenges has been adequate lighting. Without good lighting, I have lost the trail and ended up off my bike. I have had to stop many times by the highway until the bright lights of the oncoming cars passed, because the headlights completely [...]
