Bike Tech day Escondido - Sat July 22

93 posts in this topic

 

DSM8 has graciously offered to host a bike tech day at his house in Escondido on Sat July 22. This is an event so that people can do maintenance on their bikes with the help and direction of their peers who are more experienced or for those who have just been procrastinating and looking for a reason to do something. Also a good excuse to meet other members and socialize!

Waste oil can be collected and held on site. Please bring the tools and parts needed to work on your project. 

We will have a BBQ going with non- alcoholic beverages provided. If you wish to bring something to share at the lunch that would be great.

DSM8 did not specify a time so I will let him chime in on what would work for him.

Please chime in if you are coming and if you will be bringing something.

The location would be 925 Chardonney Way,  Escondido 92029

You know, my "right price" and yours are so far apart that "might" is not an option. 

Don't miss this opportunity folks, Dsm8 has a proper set up.

Tech day is approaching. We need to start getting a head count to see if this is worth DSM8 opening up his home. Please chime "IN" if your planning on attending. Thank you!

IN. I put it on my calendar and will most likely be there. I don't need anything done on my bike, but I could use some riding buddies. I would also like to talk about local places to ride dirt (legally of course). I may have some suspension questions. 

In return I'm working on a cheap-as-possible race data logger for video overlay using free software, and it will probably be ready to go by then. If anyone is interested in such a thing I can help them out. I would imagine you will be able to do this for less than $100, with a lot of expansion options. It's unlike expensive loggers, even some in the $800 range cannot do everything this can. For a little more money you can add a display and see the info real-time. Anyway I'm not selling them, just showing people how easy they are to make.

Here's a prototype video, almost all of the issues were worked out this morning, and the results are great - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ic7MgvanACk 

See you around.

- Jon

Possible....I'm supposed to be home but sometimes we get extended on these short pleasure cruises.  I have nothing that I'm planning to work on but am able to offer unwarranted advice and can eat/drink if offered.
