M5 Bike Seat Bracket Sheared Off

M5 Ti ShockProof Bike Troubles This one is a head scratcher.  I was riding the other day and felt the seat just drop.  Fortunately no accident.  I stopped and lifted up the seat cushion thinking maybe I just needed to tighten the screws (A recurring problem due to location and vibration).  Unfortunately I was not […]

Feb 2016 RBS Update

Time is the one commodity I seem to have less and less.  I do take a little time to keep up with what’s happening, but honestly it’s not a huge priority with so much on my plate. I keep the site as up to date as time allows checking the email and visiting the site […]

Cruz Bike Quest – Foldable Recumbent

From time to time I like to browse the manufacturer sites to see what’s new. While the Quest from Cruz Bike isn’t brand spanking new it’s new enough. Before I forget. Cruz Bike – how is the headrest design coming along? I’m always baffled by Recumbent Manufacturers that do not include Head Rests. It’s really […]

Velocity Wheels – Need Rims? Customer Service Online?

A few months back I wrote to Velocity USA asking about wheels.  My inquiry went unanswered.  Why businesses bother to run websites and post email addresses then never respond to them makes little sense to me.  But I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt on that one because I know that emails sometimes don’t […]
