    Re: MTB to Cruiser conversion?

    Thanks everyone for your input so far.

    Found a very cheap seat with springs, like in the olden days. Even though it only cost me 120 bucks, it is so much more comfortable than the MTB seat, with...

    Look, we all know you just want to argue.

    Re: 2.0 Bi-Turbo transfer case failure

    I totally agree. And because it is 2020, one would think that a company of the size of Ford would be able to have an engineering department that can actually design a gearbox that is not only...

    Re: Everything keeps going right, or does it?

    In other words, you would pay for 2 sets of tires where the guy with the boring SUV (which would come with a full size spare) would pay for only 1 set as that would last around 60k km while costing...

    Sorry, I don't understand why a longer stem for the handle bar would make me sit more slanted? The saddle stem is high enough.

    Precooked and frozen meals are also a great way of keeping other "fridge" items cold. Take them out of the freezer early morning and put them in the cooler box.

    Re: Which tyres for a large SUV?

    That's a bit of an exotic size. Without having any experience with those tyres, I would suggest Cooper Leon LTZ, sort of a mix between HT and AT tyre.

    That shouldn't be a problem. Anything that is within the limits of a trailer's hitch weight, 80 to 100 kg, should be ok.

    Good idea.
    Just keep in mind that any weight you put that far back exerts quite a momentum on the chassis. The gas bottle shouldn't be a problem, but a decent amount of water might put a lot of...

    Re: Petrol v8 lighter on fuel than Diesel v8

    The difference is actually a bit more. Both vary largely with temperature, but petrol is about 0.7 - 0.75 kg per litre (unleaded) and diesel around 0.81 to 0.85.

    The variation with temperature is...
