t.e.d:I'm sure that puts quite a bit of stress on your hub.
Old Knotty Buoy:With the drive side on the left, the bottom bracket mounting is also reversed. Any forward rotation that would ordinarily tend to "tighten" the cups and lock ring, now act to loosen them. Might be clever for hipsters, but not for engineers! :face-devil-grin:OKB
AlanKHG:I should have brought my real camera; my cell phone's is terrible.(The tiny white spot just above the rightmost arch is a brake lever, by the way.)
thom:Isn't the rule that you don't post the previous location until you post a new tag?
Old Knotty Buoy:Is that near the Torry Pines Golf Course?
Sigurd:This was the location for the last tag.
Praxis: Sigurd:This was the location for the last tag. That's why I love this thread. I'm hopeless on getting to these in time (or even knowing where many of them are), but I live under 5 miles away from here and had no clue it existed. I'm a SD native, too. Thanks for the fun, guys, even if it's mainly vicarious.
Fitz:Here's the new one.
AlanKHG:I think the sharing of people's favorite hidden locations is an even better part of the game than giving people an excuse to ride their bikes (most of have the commute for that). They're what make a place truly special, even magical.
Sigurd: Fitz:Here's the new one. Good one, Fitz! AlanKHG:I think the sharing of people's favorite hidden locations is an even better part of the game than giving people an excuse to ride their bikes (most of have the commute for that). They're what make a place truly special, even magical. Alan, you are raising an interesting point: The objective of the SD Bike-o-Rama thread is to present places "that everybody knows", in order to get participation from as many members as possible (as opposed to those that are the fastest, with the most time on their hands, with the most local knowledge, and so other special skills or resources) - think location in the spirit of the "Hillcrest Sign" or "Crystal Pier".Favorite hidden locations, however, are different - these are locations that most people don't know about, but should -- somewhere new to discover!The typical location for each of the two objectives are therefore different, if not even conflicting. But I, too, have favorite "secret" spots that I would like to share with the good members of this forumI wonder if there is room for a "Discovery Bike-o-Rama", where members posted favorite secret or less known locations, perhaps with some location data (or even an address or coordinates), and people would record their visit to the place with a photo of their own. Each location would be permanent, there would be no time limits or requirement to be first: Anybody can claim, any number of members can claim - kind of like geocaching, if anybody here is familiar with that game (which is awesome, BTW!).A "Tag" post could contain:Photo of bike on locationDescription of site and what makes it interesting (view, artifact, historical event, etc)Location description and directions, as applicable (incl. Googlemaps link)We could support Discovery game with data such as "Most Popular Tag", "Most Prolific Finder" and "Most Prolific Tagger" (Google Docs), to introduce some element of competition in the game.What do folks think about the idea?
I think we'll be running out of obvious places sometime soon, in any case.
thom:But Ted has the tag?
thom:I think we'll be running out of obvious places sometime soon, in any case.I agree with everything about Alan's post above except this statement!
Sigurd: Old Knotty Buoy:Is that near the Torry Pines Golf Course? billd:Location?This was the location for the last tag. There is another similar "corkscrew" bridge a little bit further to the north. Local folklore has it that there is a secret village of Munchkins somewhere in these hills. It is a fantastic -- no, magical! -- place to bicycle - quiet, twisty roads with a good selection of hilly routes to climb to the summit for those so inclined.Also, I have updated the Bike-o-Rama map with the latest finds.
