Country riding, city lifestyle

We ran out of space and had to throw (e:terry) in the truck bed.

Old Cars

Sometimes I wish I lived in a era when America had giant metal cars that guzzled gas at $0.75/ gallon and that I didn't know there was anything wrong with that.

I have a bicycle at last

Now that the summer is mostly over, I have a bicycle. I went to the store determined to buy it today. No drawn out 15 days of research to save $50 bullshit. I used to be one of those people that would obsess for weeks on decisions which was such a time waste. Along the same line, I was not going to buy one online, wait forever and then have a box till August when I decided to put it together. Or worse yet put it together and hate it.

I got the bike at Ricks on Allen because I also didn't want to drive to the suburbs on such a nice day. I l know the price is prob a bit hifher but it seemed antithetical to acquiring a bike and honestly they weren't that much above anywhere else when I checked from my phone at the store.

The first one I thought I wanted was a Raleigh route 4.0 19" gold colored bike. It was freakin gold colored and so cute but it was like twice as long as the Raleigh venture 4. The route 4 seemed easier to joy ride for long distance but the venture 4 seemed way better for bumps and stop/start and this is buffalo. Full of stop and go driving and pot holes.

Testing a bike is way worse than test driving a car. With a car terrain is all kinds of similar with a bike it really matters.

In the end I picked the venture 4.0 because you can just run over a curb like nothing and I wanted a bike that will just run over anything and had beefy tires. It also has one of those comfortable prostate sparing, fat seats with the dimple.

Hummer bikes

There are Hummer bikes at the bike store on Allen. I can't decide if I hate it or if I want one because its so ironic.

Please Buy This Segway

I saw someone riding a segway down elmwood tonight and remembered I wanted one. So I looked on ebay and they are cheap now.

Segway on Ebay -


It's only $800 on ebay. If I wasn't buying a house, two blocks from my work I would buy it. I want to play on it so bad.

Buffalo Transportation

(e:lilho), who is missing all of her ID,etc and probably won't even be able to board the plane called to ask for a ride to the airport at 4am - the morning of thanksgiving. I would give her one but we don't have a car since (e:terry) had the accident yesterday which he hasn't mentioned yet. I will leave the details up to him but it's fair to say we a minus one tire but have one complete (e:terry) who now has to take the bus to work out in cheektowaga.

(e:terry) is lucky that there is a bus because otherwise he would be really stuck with his work being so fara way. (e:lilho) on the other hand is not so lucky. I cannot believe there is no public transportation to the airport during all flight hours. The first bus goes at 6:18am which is late. When I tried to plan the trip using the NFTA public transport planner it gave me the following response. I think it meant the not only the trip to the airport but the broader trip to NYC.

My dream Automobile

So I have been thinking a lot about how I don't need 3,000 lbs of steel to propel my less than 200 body to work only about 10 blocks away. It's actually totally ridiculous seeing as I could get there on way less energy. I want an elecrtic mini car contraption thing. Toyota is coming out with these i-unit mobile things. I want to build one. I think it may turn into a hobby.


Here is a review

Here is a review on gizmodo

and one on greencarcongress

This one hold two people

Or this for a more vanilla look

These ones have a dealer in toronto and a video

I could drive to work in a peapod

They have a company that actually sells mini electric vehicles in India called the reva, but how do I get one here?

WHy are some companies crunching them up?
