    Tire ratings question...

    This is actually for a trailer that I am building that will be towed behind a mountain bike. It will mostly be used on rails-to-trails, but I may have to ride a highway once in awhile. For the most part, I will hardly go over 15mph, but if I were to go on the highway I could technically hit...

    Tire ratings question...

    Thanks... I got to thinking and wondered why bicycle tires do not have a DOT rating, and found out that they are not required to meet DOT. Same thing for the smaller tires...? In the USA bicycles are regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commision (C.P.S.C.). The tire I bought was the...

    Tire ratings question...

    Hi everyone... Man....I have not been on this forum in a long time. However, I have question that I know you guys can answer. I recently purchased a small tire, a Ton-Keep 4.00-6 nylon tire that I mounted on a Azusa Tri Star rim. The tire says that it is not rated "for highway use". Is that...

    Gas Electric hybrid??

    Ok...probably a crazy notion but I have been wondering why a person could not build a plane that was powered by a gas & electric engine. The gas engine would have the power to get you airborne, but then you could shut down the main gas engine for favor of the electric. With all the new...

    What is the ultimate bush plane?

    This plane seems like it would be a contender, the Bushman by Just Aircraft. Enough room for a lot of stuff.

    The Shuttle Launch....

    I sent the link to this video to my 14 year old grandson and his reply was: "That is so cool!" The younger ones see the beauty and awe of the technology, rather than the price or politics of it. That being said, it would be interesting to go ahead 40 plus years to see what that generation...

    BEARHAWK THOUGHTS

    I would like to see that picture of you Adam, with the Vortex generators on you arm and leaping off the roof of the house. :) If my dream of getting another plane comes true it more than likely will be a Patrol and I would more than likely have the V/Generators installed. It would be a lot...

    What is the ultimate bush plane?

    I am surprised that the Wilga was not used as a bush plane that much, if at all. It seems like it would be a good contender.

    Single Struts

    So has anyone ever had a off field landing where the struts got in the way? Some of you pointed out the possibility of that, snagging something on a strut on a landing. That must be was the Polish were thinking of when they designed the Wilga without them.
