How I make the alcohol stove that I take on my rides for coffee outside. To make your own stove I suggest searching Youtube. Many great tutorials there.
Miscellaneous unrelated bicycle related photos.
In order to disassemble and reassemble a Bendix Automatic 2 speed “kickback) hub you need a special tool. I made this crude one from a socket a few years ago.
The tool goes in to the 2 slots on the adjusting cone lock nut.
Since I didn’t use a deep socket to make the tool I have to hold it with vice-grips. Use an adjustable wrench to hold the adjusting cone while you remove the lock nut.
I recently decided to do the Coffee Outside thing on some of my rides. Doing it cheaply was my main goal.
For my pour-over set-up I cut off the top of a Gatorade bottle to make a funnel. Since these photos were taken I’ve put the lid back on with a couple of holes drilled in it so the coffee steeps a little longer. I use the standard coffee filters which we already have at home.
Not being a real coffee geek I’m fine using the same pre-ground cheap coffee that we use in our automatic drip maker at home.
If I continue to do this I’m sure I will tweak and refine my system.
Before leaving Missouri to return home from Buddy’s Pedal Fest we drove to the town of Windsor. Windsor is where the Katy and the new Rock Island rails-to-trails intersect. I hopped on Nova’s bike and rode around briefly.
This past weekend we drove to Pleasant Hill, Missouri to attend Buddy’s Pedal Fest which is a bike show, swap and ride along with a bbq and this year live music. This is our 3rd time attending the event and we always have a great time.
The video is from the ride following the show and swap…
A foot long piece of 3/4 inch conduit with slits cut in to it and then fanned out.
Got the idea from RJ The Bike Guy.
“Finding a dumped, upholstered, couch, loveseat or chair while on a bike ride & photograph yourself sitting on the furniture with your bike also in the photo.”
