10th Annual Cruisin' Downriver - MI

Posted on June 30, 2009 at 2:00am 3 Comments

On Saturday evening, June 27, 2009 my wife and I headed to the 10th Annual Cruisin' Downriver and WHAT an experience... and will not be going back again!



The plan was to cruise up and down Fort Street a few times and dinner at a local restaurant. Well… some of it did happen. My wife and I had dinner at the Ram's Horn Restaurant, the food and service was good. But we only cruised Fort Street only one-and-a-half times. Why? I was not prepared for the crude comments from the… Continue

Bike Rack Projects - Single and Tandem

Posted on June 20, 2009 at 7:30pm 7 Comments

I have finished my bike rack projects for my smart car. After my 1st prototype to design one rack to hold either a tandem or a triathlon bike. I decided to make 2 bikes racks, one for the triathlon bike and another for the tandem bike.



Now I am going one step further, I figured out a way to carry two bikes on the back by only adding a couple of pieces.



Over the next week I'll will be uploading video showing if there is any movement (flexing) of the bikes when driving. And… Continue

Stage 3 - Bike Rack Concept

Posted on June 7, 2009 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

It's almost complete after a redesign. My first concept and prototype was to have one bike rack to accommodate two different bikes, triathlon and a tandem bicycle. I found a couple of flaws in the prototype so back to the drawing board or the computer in my case and I finally worked out all the kinks.



1st Prototype - Tandem

08.8 lbs - Bike Rack Mount (Designed by Mr. Incredible)

11.4 lbs - Rocky Mounts Bike Rack

34.6 lbs - Cannondale Tandem Bike

54.8 lbs TOTAL for… Continue

This is what it looks like right now...

After 12 years of wanting a Smart I finally have one. A 2008 ..now I want a bike rack to hold two bikes. I'm not sure which is the best bet?

Also can a Smart be legally parked perpendicular to on the street parking?

Thanks Bob, I ordered the antenna and should I say, "Dooh" (a la Homer Simpson) about how easy it is to install it.
At 11:04am on August 13, 2008, Rmichael said…
Hey Bob, how did you install the short antenna? Looks like you ordered the J-Series antenna but did it fit without a new base? I almost never listen to the radio in my car but use my iPod all the time.
