Learn How To Maintain Your Bike(S)

A major hurdle for many new riders is feeling overwhelmed by how much maintenance their new bike needs. Stripped down to the basic preventative needs (oil, tires, rotors, brake shoes), taking care of your bike isn’t impossible if you have the right tools and resources. Start with Cyclepedia, an online resource for training videos and service manuals.

If you lack space to work on your bike, seek out one of the many DIY shops across the country. For a nominal hourly rate, you get a lift and access to tools plus assistance from the owner of other customers. My experience at Moto Guild Silicon Valley has been nothing short of a miracle to keep my bikes rolling.

The major caveat to knowing how to maintain your bike is eliminating the fear of getting stranded. Most mechanical issues can be avoided with proper maintenance, and little things don’t have to become big issues.

This $10,000 3D-Printed Electric Car Will Be on the Market in 1 Year .
Consumers in China will be able to buy mass-produced, 3D-printed electric cars for under $10,000 by Q2 2019. The Italian company X Electrical Vehicle (XEV) will team up with Polymaker, a manufacturer of 3-D printing materials, to make the LSEV, which XEV claims will be the first mass-produced 3D-printed car. The company says it has already received more than 7,000 orders for the cars from the Italian postal service and from ARVAL, a vehicle-leasing service. The cars top out at 70 kilometers per hour (a little under 45 MPH) and have a range of 150 kilometers (just over 90 miles). A designer for XEV told South China Morning Post that China was the biggest market for their cars, and the company is in talks to set up a production line on the mainland. The cars reportedly take around three days to manufacture. Everything visible on the car except the windows, chassis, and seats is 3D printed.
