I quit driving in October 2009 after a DUI. This was the first time I had a gun pulled on me and I was being as cooperative as I think I have to be. So, I decided to quit driving.

I am pretty sure I can get Trek to finance me on a tandem I am REALLY in love with. Seriously, I drink 211, eat mushrooms, and read from my journal of painful memories trying to erase the good memories I have of this bike, like in "The Butterfly Effect."

The thing is, I already have a bike. The tandem/utility is like $6000 and I kind of think about having Trek as some sort of sponsor in the future. I actually did canvasing in Waukesha, WI for Mary Burke for her gubernatorial bid in the recall election.

So, I want someone who is considering to also go fuel-less to finance a nice bicycle for themselves in the same household. You really do need to experience the performance of a carbon fiber bicycle. Going from 18.5mph to 21mph is more than 13.5% improvement in performance.

Anyway, help me out,
Thanks,
Tyler

Bicycle towns should regulate the curb weight of vehicles owned by the citizens in those municipalities.

Wow. I’d quit drinking 211 immediately first off. I lived over a year without a personal vehicle. Using a family car again. But a good bike is nice yes. But personally I’m okay with one that works for me from a thrift store.

@hazeinmybong you are one of the most confusing posters I have ever seen on this website...

I am taking it that you are looking for someone else with the same idea to move into a house with you and finance a bike for themselves to create a fuel free household?

Will the household have gas or electricity? Because those both need fuel to accomplish. Unless you have solar and wood.

The idea is to get a credit card as a way to improve credit rather than to purchase a car note. I was kind of trying to sell someone on a bike and split the costs on an apartment.

Now, I think I will hack my current bike into a tandem/cargo and get a credit card for a new daily rider. My bike is a 2006 Trek 5000. I think I can do some additive paper-mache construction and make it into a tandem like the Hase Pino. I've used West-Systems epoxy before, and I've seen woven carbon fiber on amazon. This was supposed to be a housing thread though and this is is becoming a bike thread.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!

Beautiful day to be alive and listen to the birds chirp, remembering to be grateful for what we have and not worry about what we have not.
Healthy in PDX. Back here after years to keep track of those bugging out and to check in on those still on the road.
