    And how about this beauty. A genuine top of the heap Waste Management special. Yup, somebody threw this Murrey away. Just needs a good cleanup job. But I already have a bike. But I can use those hardly used knobby tires. And the shifters and higher density chain cassette, and other parts. Its amazing this wasn't swiped before I drove by. Must mean a seizmic shift in the larceny culture is underway, with eBikes rendering regular bikes more worthless. Its a girls bike to, I think, so not very useful to real he men, hah.

      Don't feel bad most of the bikes in Miami have been stolen twice.
      It's almost a form of bike share.

      Next years cruise actually goes out of Miami for the first time. Maybe I wont bring my bike next year. It will be an eBike by then. And it sounds like they would cut my car open to get the bike off, Hah. But then again, I would really want to explore Miami to find all the great spots there. I know Ft Lauderdale like the back of my hand.

      Maybe MLK day Wheels Up Guns Down would interest you. The police started confiscating the dirtbikes and quads, so now it's a bicycle event.They ride I-95 enmasse and block traffic.
      My brother used to commute Miami, he moved to NYC where it's safer.
      Or maybe the Tuesday night Critical Mass rides. Hordes of cyclist form a peloton at night and ride all over the place. One car backed out of a driveway in front of them. 23 of them hit the same car.
      One guy here had 3 Ebikes stolen last Dec. 2 at once off his yacht while he was sleeping on it. This was FTL not Miami.

    I updated the Tannus Tire Liner thread in DIY Forum and added some info about the weight of various flat resistant tires Vs. the Tannus liners.
    I ordered a couple of these for my bike. Kind of like pool noodles made for bike tires. 15mm thick which with Scwalbe Big Ben Plus e bike tires=20mm flat protection.. They claim smoother ride, better grip, and some run flat capability. I didn't watch any Youtube , I just dived right in like an average bicycle enthusiast As
