Already?


Btw, how's your bike?


No, I didn't have The Room in mind there rollinglaugh.gif
Sakiri
It's unridden. I have trouble mounting and discounting. I can't lift my leg high enough. The handlebars are still loose, despite tightening to where I'm afraid to tighten more.

Sighs.
mirocu
That's a bummer. It was so nice, it needs to be ridden!
Sakiri
Dude, I tried to get on it in the living room. Trying to get off again after discovering loose handlebars, I fell over.

It was embarrassing.

Gotta be a way to fix it.

I want someone else to look at it, but there's literally *no one* here that deals with bicycles. Everyone works on their own.

I just took a look at the handlebars on my own bike, and there are two connections that have to be tightened for the vertical axis. One is for the handlebar height, but if loose, lets the handlebars turn without the wheel. The other is there because on mine, the forward extension is separate from the pillar, so it can also let the bars turn without the wheel.

If yours is similar, you may be tightening one joint when the other is loose.

(Interestingly, the US manufacturer has the torque requirements printed on each in Newton-metres.)

My old bike had the pillar and extension as a one-piece L-shaped casting, with only one place to tighten for turn.
mirocu
ghastley to the rescue; called it! biggrin.gif
Sakiri
I've torqued the crap out of these things. I don't have a torque wrench so I gotta go by ear so to speak and I'm absolutely terrified I'm going to overtighten.

What happens is when I put weight on the bars the whole thing twists downward, like if a hunge was closing. But I can't find anything I haven't tightened. They don't twist, they pivot.

The seat clamp is also not fully tight but the creaking it makes when I tighten makes me afraid I'll break it and this seat clamp is part of the frame. I break it, I can't easily replace it.
ghastley
Ah, the other axis. There will only be one joint that way. Which could mean that the bars are the wrong diameter for the extension. Once you've closed up the gap, there's no way to get that any tighter.

Newer standard handlebars have a 31.8mm diameter in the middle, bulged out from the rest of the bar, and both road and mountain bikes use the same size. Older standard bars are 25.4 or 26.0mm depending on road or mountain, so fittings for one would be almost, but not quite, on the other. So if you have a 25.4 bar and a 26.0 stem, you'd have the possibility of closing the clamp fully with the bar still loose.
mirocu
Well, you have a laptop so if you're in bed you have no excuse not to be here! biggrin.gif
Sakiri
It's not a 25mm bar, because the 25mm bell they sent with it doesn't fit.

I'll try to get a picture of the head tube. The bar isn't rotating, but rather the thing feels like it's folding.

It's a CUBE town n sport and the thing was near fully assembled when I got it. Just needed to twist the bars and attach pedals.

https://imgur.com/a/KrOYfJF

Two angles. Let me know if they're not clear.
ghastley
The bar won't be the same size all the way along. The middle is generally a bit larger than the rest. It gets complex - see here and look at the number of different diameters used.

That bell may fit in a different place along the bar! Though more likely is that you have a mix of sizes here that don't go together, and the bell is just another instance.
Sakiri
It doesn't. Whole bar is 32mm. And theres no convenient spot for it. Right side has my gear shift, left side has the control pad for my bike's computer(electric bike).

The middle of the bar does appear a bit thicker, but there doesn't seem to be a place I can put a 25mm clamp.

Bells are required here in Sweden. Despite no one hearing them. Earbuds, cars.

I was going to order a 32mm bell but forgot when I ordered the rest of the stuff.

There's two bolts under the head clamp there. I might be able to tighten those more, but I'd kill for a torque wrench.
mirocu
I do hope you'll be able to get your bike together soon. It's sad it has to stay inside the house kvleft.gif

Dear bird(and anyone else with shrub experience),

We have these really gnarly woody plants growing in the back part of the house. We just had them all cut down. However, the stumps are too close together and dense to rototill to get the dang things out so they don't grow back.

I'd like to plant grass there in the future so salt is out of the question. How do I get rid of this stuff? Gonna get some pictures in a bit. My guess is that killing the stumps is a good start but I don't even know how to go about doing that, either.
mirocu
Well, if the stumps are cut down to grass level I reckon you can just go with the mower there. Any regrow will be cut down.

But yeah; pix! biggrin.gif
Sakiri
Theresa lot of other stuff there, too. Think the blades will hit the stumps. The guy used a forestry grade weedeater.

The third pic looks like it's taken in another direction... biggrin.gif


Looks like you need to rake all that stuff away? Clear the ground? Then perhaps cultivating and sowing. But I'm no grass farmer so I don't know tongue.gif
Sakiri
We should rake it up yes, but he took out most of it.

I don't think we can plant grass or anything til the stumps are out though.Or super dead. I kinda want to plant corn too >.> but I don't think it'll grow this far north.
mirocu
Rent an excavator and the job getting those stumps out will be fun! Then you get a green house and grow your corn.


Yeah. Don't ever say I don't have all the answers cause you just got SERVED cool.gif

Lol! I actually did think of having the guy down the road drag the excavator bucket over it to scrape up the roots... Just not sure how feasible it is to get it down there, because it's below road level by a ways.

Deleted the Imgur app off my phone today. It was taking up a ton of my storage and while I once enjoyed browsing through it to see what folks were up to, lately it’s been mostly political crap, corona stuff, and now the trouble in Minneapolis. I just wanted to see the creative stuff people are doing and the occasional funny meme, I don’t need a constant reminder of how crappy things are right now.

So I went to start installing Skyrim mods on my PC and came to the conclusion that well, I can't. not to the extent I did for my laptop.

I have less than 30 GB left on my SSD.

Then I just looked at my husband's computer. i5-4460 and GTX 960. Like, it's not gonna run anything new.

Might just buy a new one and give him this thing. lol
