I just added to the extra stuff laying around. I took my deceased wife’s bike to the LBS to get a tune up and a new front fork. We removed the motorized wheel and battery and went back to the original wheel. Got both wheels trued and a new shifter cable. They made the bike look like new. I’m taking the bike to Ohio so my girlfriend and I can ride the paved bike trail that is near her house. She hasn’t ridden a bike in years but is physically fit. I think she will do fine.I know how bikes suddenly appear due to most of the parts laying around in boxes from upgrading things on other bikes.........scraped together enough stuff on hand to squeeze out last 2 builds with minimal purchases and whittle down the amount of stuff hiding out not having a purpose.
I’m waiting on a trailer hitch I ordered for the CRV I just bought after my Honda Pilot died after only 170 sum thousand miles. I expected a lot more miles from it. My mechanic talked me out of getting a new motor for it.
I ordered a roof rack for hauling kayaks the same time I ordered the trailer hitch. The roof rack came in yesterday and I installed it today. It’s going to be a tight fit getting both bikes inside the CRV but I think I can do it until I get my hitch.
