      Dear Olga, there is a German saying:
      "Unkraut vergeht nicht" = "Сорная трава не погибает" :-)

    Front brake
    Idea successfully materialize. :-)

      I had looked long for a suitable front brake. I had already thought that I had to do a self-construction with parts of a standard brake.

    Saalberg Windmühlenstumpf
    The same remarkable tower in the winter dress.
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
      14 years 8 months ago
      Yes, I am often at the tower.
      I like to climb up the 350 m high hill by bicycle. It is a good power training with pretty surroundings!

        Height good for training. Near to your house?
        How this tower is used?
        • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

          The tower is in the area of my house. It fulfils no commercial purpose. It is used only by wanderers and by a mad cyclist as an lookout :-))
          From the top of the tower you have a magnificent panorama.

    Couch for two!
    Videoclip with a couchbike is simply remarkable... I never saw such operated couch on wheels:))) ...
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
      14 years 8 months ago
      Yes, the couchbike is really amusing.
      I can well imagine, that it is a great fun for two, to cycle with the couch in the nature and to enjoy rest at an idyllic place ;-))
      • Елена Premium user Russia (Private)
        14 years 8 months ago
        And I imagine such couchbike on our roads (for example, Moscow-Yaroslavl:)))) where practically anywhere there is no reserve strip, and in some places it is necessary to go on sand:))), and around - huge camions and cars:)))...

          Dear Hellen, you're absolutely right. With the wide part, I would also not drive on any German street. If you will ride, nevertheless, the bicycle marathon Moscow-Yaroslavl, please use another pedal driven vehicle! :-))
          Therefore, my couch is narrow with a single seat. I'm trying to build my couch so, that it will be comfortable but suitable for bike marathons on Russia's roads.

    Excellent gift from the GrandFather Frost!!!
    Now in the summer You will go by an unusual bicycle, at which pedals above a saddle!!! Yes???
    Manfred - the super-biker and the super-master!!!
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

      Thanks dear Hellen!
      Not super-biker - but old man, who needs comforts!
      :-)

        It seems to me, to go by such bicycle will be difficultly enough... but it will be not comfortable...
        Your actions are not similar to actions of the old man ... :)))

          14 years 8 months ago
          Dear Hellen, thanks for your comment.
          But it is not a joke: The reason for the couch is to increase the comforts!

          The old man has a problem with the intervertebral discs of the cervical spine. After riding 600-800 km with a racing bike, the old man always gets a stiff neck. Then he is not able to rise the head and to look ahead. To ride further and to finish the marathon, the old man has to fit the handlebars very highly.
          Look here:

          After the long ride it needs some weeks, until the neck of the old man is normal again.
          In contrast to the racing bike, the neck position on the couch will be relaxed. To get best comfort, the old man has mounted a neck rest at the couch :-)))

            I have understood that it is not a joke ...
            It will be interesting to look when such new bicycle will be made by You...
            Yes... 600-800 km on a bicycle at great speed and practically without interruption... For me it is reachless ...
            Now I rejoice to trips a maximum on 30 km for a day ... and that only at weekend and when weather allows :)))))...
            • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
              14 years 8 months ago
              30 km in one day - that are more km per day, than I cycled 12 years ago :-)))
              Nowadays I know: Nothing is unreachable!!
              • Елена Premium user Russia (Private)
                14 years 8 months ago
                Yes, it is exact - all reachable if there is a wish, a specific goal and actions... and all it give joie de vivre :)
                But now ... :) ... I am rather afraid even of tours with about 50 km a day ... :))))

                  You're great!
                  I'm sure you'll still go bicycle marathons!
                  ;-)))

                      Hello dear Hellen,
                      I have found a nice training purpose for you!
                      You must get to become "only" fit for your first marathon until September!
                      This year Jarolslavl celebrates its 1000-year-old existence. To the celebration a bicycle marathon "Москва-Ярославль 300" will be organized in September.
                      Isn’t it a good target for you?
                      :-)))

                        Hello, Manfred,
                        Many thanks for the variant of training found for me!

                        I have read about marathons (Москва-Ярославль) on the Internet and have understood that it too high training purpose for me now..

                        I most likely accept a bicycle tourism when I go not on highway (dusty and polluted) and not for the speed and distance (300 km for once - for me it very and very much - I "will lose" knees), and among the nature and in that rate in which I can now.

                        I not the sportswoman :))), and the usual fan of active recreation and a healthy way of life (at that level of which I am capable and of which I am joyful).

                        Probably, I will go at bicycle tour where in day pass 20-30-40 km... But even not 100... Also combine bicycle traffic with the excursion program...
                        Or pedestrian tour... On mountains and woods... And too with excursions...
                        I have already found something on this theme, but definitively was not defined...
