that's hot. I'm going to print it and model mine after yours :). oh, and don't mock gas stations too much-it still uses gas, and oil.

Sorry to hear about that.

You'd have better results on the street if you use *street* tires. Off-road tires are for off-road. Also, it's more effective to go slow when you can see the road isn't very sturdy (e.g. - wet, sandy, gravelly, etc.).

G'luck on the rest of your journey!

sorry about that. glads you are alright. yep, I learned along time ago on skinny tire road bikes-you need to cross those tracks dead perpendicular and coasting is a good tip.
