Yes, just started with strava a week or two ago. My bicycle is a Trek Y3 with big touring tires. Unfortunately the freewheel is very draggy when freewheeling so it is in pieces right now, trying to see if I can either open it up or replace it.

Despite the fact that NYS vehicle laws are not allowing home built motorized bikes I am seeing more 49er powered mountain bikes here. The Lime e-bikes are available but not everyone has the phone to use one.

I am slowly working on a tail box for my 700C triple crank commuter bike. I am using 9 mm aluminum honeycomb for the bulkheads and spars. The front is angled to follow the contours of my back and the rear Kamm tail is 8 inches wide. Length is 18 inches at the base. The skin is hex mesh chicken wire bonded between 5 mil plastic. The nose is cut and bent from 4 mm Coroplast to resemble a motorcycle touring fairing.
