  1. General Discussion
    I was hanging out at Starbucks yesterday afternoon, as usual, to charge my Ebike battery, so I could make it home. Hanging with my old friend Charles, and my son, when he got off work. I was looking outside and saw a cyclist riding a wheelie up to the front door, looked like they were about to...
  2. Communications
    I passed my Technician and General Amateur Radio exams last weekend, so now I am shopping for my first gear. I want to start out with a simple man-portable walkabout/bicycle-friendly kit for urban or woodland recon, bugout/bugin, and get home. (Later, as I become more proficient, I will explore...
  3. Vehicles & Transportation
    railroads usually avoid grades steeper than 3 %,, and yet take reasonably direct routes .... there is little surface friction to waste your energy,,, this one is a pumper , but I would prefer a pedal version

    In the PAW stories you often read where the hero and or heroine are stuck in the city and need transportation out of the mess. A their solution to the problem of no transportation is a bicycle. In all of the times that I have been on the prepper boards I have never see a bug out bicycle...

  8. General Discussion
    in 2009 i had the misfortune to spend some time in california. Times got pretty tough and I was reduced to using a very used mountain bike that someone gave me to get around. I am posting my experiences in the hope that others can get a good idea what it was like to start from being very badly...

    i am thinking of building a rig to put a bicycle in that would be able to produce some pedal power. similar to the link below... http://www.pedalpowergenerator.com/#FREE i would probably prefer to "part it out" and was wondering if anyone might have a good source for a 300-400 watt permanent...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was thinking of figuring out a way to charge a battery. I remember seeing some of those old tv shows that had the exercise bikes powering something or other. I cant seem to figure out what to search for. Any help would be appreciated in locating the device. I want to get one to add to my bug...
  11. Vehicles & Transportation
    Since i'm a mountainbike enthusiast i believe that mountainbikes would be a most excellent alternative to gas-operated vehicles in a shtf or bug-out scenario for a variety of reasons. There's enough street construction currently happening around here that gridlock is guaranteed in the event of...

They list a couple other places that sell trailers as well: http://www.bikesatwork.com/hauling-cargo-by-bike/bicycle-trailer-guide.html I found three...
