Engine Job

During the weekend before show no. 3 I went to the Decathlon store for MTB shorts and another piece of gear. No shorts, but this chain checker was a few bucks and I can always use another tool...    After drilling, I marked the orientation for the two halves...    I tried to remove the disc for cleaning, but it cracked. I installed the new freewheel for now and will add a new disc later...    A quick check with my 10-12 gauge battery cable shows ample elbow room to run the cables underneath, meaning  I don't need extra ventilation holes if I make three 0.5x1 inch cable ports in the bottom...    A baker's dozen grid of small holes within a 2.5x2.25 inch area should be more than enough venting for the top of the battery box...

Seeing Through Nomad Eyes

You'll find individual and group homeless tents all over the city, squatting for a few weeks until the person inside wears out their welcome or gets raided by the cops, or burns themself out of the spot...    Most of these encampments are former apartment dwellers who would never be confused with a camper outside of a city...    Surreptitious shot of what could be a floating bike chop shop between locations, usually found under the freeway or a secluded back alley...
