Rear's a Sturmey Archer SRF3 3-speed hub (the updated aluminum-shell version of the venerable AW hub) laced to an Alex Adventurer rim. I've just gotten word though that S-A is coming out with a 3-speed fixed hub. A part of me is wishing I had gone with that instead.

For the rim, I was looking for something a touch wider to accommodate bigger tires and something decidedly non-aero.



Up front I went with a Dimension high-flange track hub laced, like the rear, to an Alex Adventurer rim. Dimensions are relatively inexpensive and maintenance-free, and I wanted the high flange to match the generous flange on the rear 3-speed hub.

The red is the first coat after the primer. At least four more coats (some in different colors) will follow.

Street Use ad the Law

Street Use ad the Law


A review by Phillip Taylor

This unique book, which fits into the pocket nicely, is a succinct, quick-reference guide to the legal problems affecting our streets.

It’s a great pity that it was not available to me when I was an elected councillor because so much of what is in the book make up the type of personal cases which many urban councillors confront on a daily basis.

Who is the book aimed at?

Everybody! It looks at street use by individuals such as drivers, pedestrians, contractors, cyclists and dog owners.

It investigates potential dangers, conflicts of interest, and public nuisances occurring in our everyday environment.

In short, it is an invaluable guide for members of the public with local residents’ problems, community safety practitioners, residents’ associations, planners and those affected by planning applications, and lawyers handling personal injury and nuisance litigation.

I see ‘Street Use and the Law’ as an easy-to-use manual which lists each topic alphabetically, and has a comprehensive index which gives the reader quick access to the appropriate legislation.

Fundamentally, it is not a ‘heavyweight’ legal publication but more in the way of a legal ‘ready reckoner’ (in the non-arithmetic sense, so you can breathe a sigh of relief!) where each topic points to those parts of a statute which is appropriate to the topic, and it summarises effectively what the law contains in each relevant Act.

There will be critics of this little book, which is really a manual or guide, but I am not one of them. It is long overdue for the ‘community’ book market and a welcome friend to it.

With so much going on at street level in our society, it is not surprising that areas of contention arise from street usage. Enter ‘Street Use and the Law’ as the first point of reference for all legal issues arising from street law and pavements politics so favoured by one particular party.

Paul Clayden covers issues of liability in relation to the responsibilities of local government well and he examines the duties of local authorities to ensure the well-being and safety of all road users. It could well become the pavement politicians ‘bible’ for its statement of the law.

The Contents

The book has just over 160 pages covering such topics as what laws apply if fairground attractions obstruct traffic; if a dangerous dog is allowed to roam the streets without a muzzle; if a drain which overflows has led to dangerous amounts of surface water; and the ever-present nuisance of the abandoned shopping trolley.

The book deals with these and many other numerous types of potential danger and public nuisance which make up everyday, mundane but nevertheless, important, issues for local people.

The contents cover: abandoned vehicles; advertisements; alcohol consumption in public places and drunkenness; anti-social behaviour; banners; begging; betting and gaming; bicycles; bus shelters; byelaws; closed circuit television and speed cameras; the community support officer; crossings; deliveries of goods; disabled persons; diversions and street closures; dog control and dog fouling; drainage of highways; excavations and deposit of material in street; forecourts; gates, walls and fences; graffiti; hedges; hoardings; ice and snow; invalid carriages; licensed premises; lighting; litter; noise; obstructions; parking; pavements and footways; processions and assemblies; public conveniences; road humps and other traffic calming measures; road traffic regulations; ropes and wires; scaffolding; skateboarding and roller-skating; skips; statutory nuisances; street collections; street trading; street works; tramways; trolley vehicle systems and guided transport systems; trees; and trolleys.

Warning! Warning!

There is a word of warning, though! Do not fall into the trap that so many laymen fall into that this book is an antidote to all the wrongs that befall road usage.

It's not a replacement for the very detailed expositions of case law and statute law to be found in a law library or by visiting a costly lawyer for advice.

Clayden does say in his Preface that for a fuller exposition of the law reference should be made to legal textbooks or other specialist legal publications.

The Preface also contains useful definitions (perhaps it should be re-named a ‘glossary of terms’!) Clayden has also included guidance and/or directions which are contained in the ever-increasing ministerial circulars and publications by government departments and other bodies.

The internet is the key to such information although there are no internet links given in this work so the reader will need to use google.

I described this guide to street law as unique because it brings together all the problem causes me and my colleagues have faced and currently face as elected local councillors.

I see 'Street Use' as a ‘must have’ book for local environmental pressure groups and community or residents associat

Elite Parabolic Indoor Roller Bicycle Trainer

The Parabolic Roller is a roller suitable for a sports training, that simulates realistically the feeling of a road race, since the back wheel is not bound to the frame but slides freely. It has three thermoplatic-material rollers, two of which are connected to a transmission belt and bound to a strong painted iron frame. The cylinders rotate on sealed bearings and have a particular parabolic shape that helps keeping the bike perfectly in axis. Parabolic Roller is pliable and can easily fit even the trunk of a small car. Parabolic shape makes riding on rollers easier. Balanced PVC bearings. Sealed cartridge bearings. Optional front wheel stabilizer fits any road or mountain bike.

Need to train for an upcoming road race but don't care for the static feel of indoor bicycle trainers? Turn to the Elite Parabolic Roller, which offers three thermoplatic rollers to hold your bike wheels. Because the back wheel is not bound to the frame, your bike will slide freely as you ride, better simulating the feeling of an actual road race. It's just like riding outdoors but in the comfort of your living room. Each cylinder rotates on sealed cartridge bearings, with a parabolic shape helping keep the bike perfectly in axis. The two rear rollers, meanwhile, are connected to a transmission belt and bound to a strong painted-iron frame. As a result, your rear wheel will feel stable and secure whether you're powering through three-hour distance sessions or short interval bursts. And if the loose feel of the rollers makes you nervous, you can also opt for a front wheel stabilizer (sold separately) that fits any road or mountain bike. Compact and pliable, the Parabolic Roller fits easily in the trunk of your car or in the back of a closet.

The Land of Scares (3)

The Land of Scares (3)

Thailand - Land of Scares: When i noticed i had lost the motorbike key , that was enough of a shock. But soon I was shocked even more - the rented motorcycle itself dematerialized, too.

Heck, I had danced away in that huge disco on the edge of town called "Only One" or something. Had a nice flirt with a waitress from Nakhon Sri Thammarat (should I venture down south next week?). Then what I thought was a lady volley ball team in trainings suites had invited me to their table and to some whiskey; turned out they all worked in the same furniture superstore near Tesco Lotus and showed up in sales outfit (should I venture for some bathroom mirrors next day?).

Okay, 2 a.m., glaring lights are turned on. I smile goodbye to Miss Thammarat and to the furniture team, dig myself through the congested exit fingering for the key in my pocket - but no key! Shock!

Maybe the key fell out somewhere in that dance hangar?!? I dart back to the entrance. There I see Miss Thammarat again, in line with 20 other waitresses, waiing the customers home. I tell her my key is lost and she wants to go back with me for searching. But first we have to fight our way through some drunken men who are still dancing like dervishs right in the entrance. They grab my arm - "Hello mister, you happy-happy". Oh, delightful Isaan, please, not now, Farang mai happy, Farang scared, I shake them off in a rude and un-Thai way.

Back in the emptying dance hangar, sweet Miss Thammarat and I dive for moto-sai keys under the tables. You can find anything there, just no keys.

Then I have another idea: Maybe I forgot the key in the machine? This happens to me all the time, actually. In peaceful Isaan, so far it had never been a problem. Whether stopping at a 7-11, a bank, a restaurant, a pagoda or just somewhere in the outbacks for a bit of lotus pond clicking - whenever I returned, there was my Honda with keys, luggage and all.

But Ubon Ratchathani is a big town, and it is definitely unwise to leave moto-sai with keys in front of a most popular disco in the night. "Maybe key in moto-sai", I explain to Miss Thammarat from under the table and dart off one more time, this time out again, back to the parking lot.

And then - moto-sai is gone. Really: gone. Now I am in deep trouble. Not that I gave my passport to the rental company, and the deposit had not been too hefty (the Honda being not too impressive either). But they had asked for the business card of my hotel, and they have a passport copy. What am I going to do with a stolen rented Honda while the key did a runner simultanously? All kinds of unethical and illegal ideas strike me as I stand there empty-handed in the night on that parking lot. I ponder the many unpleasant things that will happen in the consequence of that motorbike theft, while around me elated happy Thais set off for more action somewhere else in Ubon Ra'. I stay behind alone.

At first I don't even notice the tiny Thai man that's patiently standing in front of me. When he manages to enter my advertence, I am definitely not in for the usual "Whereyoufrom" spiel. Please, chok-dii khrap now, no talk, I don't feel interactive...

Then I see a motorbike key dangling from his fingers! "Moto-sai over there", he goes! I grab him by the arm and drag him to that bike.

It's my bike! Everything ok!

He seems to be some kind of caretaker. He has found the key and moved my bike 20 meters to create more space for other customers. Funny that he remembers me as the owner - I definitely did not see him when I arrived. And yes, obviously I had left the key in the bike, and he had kept it for me. My vacation has a future again: I don't have to become unethical, I can stay in Thailand. Life can be great.

The dervish dancers from the entrance walk by, still high on emotions. Now I feel more Thai friendly again. I flash a big and relieved smile - yes, now mister Farang happy-happy maak-maak.

365 Days #63

W and were trading pics of bikes one night, and I forwarded her one of a cafe'd Honda CB750, then checked Craigslist on a whim to see if any were up for sale.

I didn't expect much: big CB's don't often come up for sale, and when they do, they're usually waaaaaay out of my price range.

So I was totally surprised to find one in Tacoma for a price that I was sure was a typo. I called, verified the price and general condition ("TLC, but complete"), and I was on the road to the seller's house 20 minutes later with cash in my pocket. And an hour later I was the surprised owner of an '82 Honda CB750 ... for $150.

It's a project bike for sure, but the frame, engine, transmission, and suspension are all in good shape, and underneath all the '80s cruiser touches lurks a skeleton that's lean and mean.

Have a look at the top and bottom pictures: the one on the bottom is an '81, but otherwise, at their core, they're the same bike.

Have I mentioned that I'm kinda outrageously excited to start work on this one?

I was able to snap a few of my buddy Travis riding some trails the other day. It was nice to shoot some action for a change. Also, I had the added pleasure of setting up some strobes and combining with natural light.

Strobist: Both were shot with a key light at camera left and a rim light further camera left. The sun also helped in frame 1.

Waiting for Fall.....or fall weather at least.
