Nope... Fedex tracking says it left somewhere in GA last night at 11pm. Still says today by end of day, but it doesn't say "out for delivery" yet, so I doubt it shows up today. Prolly Monday, unless Fedex works on Sunday.

HA!

Now it says "pending" and the box dimensions say 20" x 6" x 5" and 8 lbs. That sounds like it's the battery because it damn sure ain't the bike. d'oh!

Hope it fkn shows up by Tuesday evening... I'm going to Sarasota for Thanksgiving and won't be back until Sunday or Monday.

It’s an electric bike,
but it’s taking some time because the power is actually generated by coal…

Took about 3 weeks to get my Ebike once they sent it out. It came from CA to MA. Since it has a large lithium battery they can't send it via plane and it has to go on a truck.

In my area FedEx, UPS and USPS deliver packages on Sundays. FedEx is less reliable on their shipping dates as compared to UPS and USPS.

Sounds like Bucky is the kind that gives bike riders a bad name. Cut corners, don't follow the rules of the road. etc

There are already a whole spectrum of people who don't want them on the road. I have had people actually throw a full can of coke at me at 50 mph and try to run me off the road for the fun of it. This kinda of chit makes it worse.


I pretty much obey the rules of the road (mostly). I yield to cars because I'm not ready to die just yet. I live in a small town/city. They roll up the roads after 11 pm. Only thing open after 11 pm is a 24 hr CVS and one 24 hr gas station. I think the brew pub is open until 1:00 AM on Friday and Saturday. I live in a sleepy little town

Traffic is is kinda weird...cars actually stop when a pedestrian approaches a cross walk.

Our town got a state grant to redo the roads (part of state money to upgrade replace the old plumbing and sewer system). They put in marked bike lanes on many of the commonly traveled roads. I'm guessing this was part of the fine print attached to the grant that they received.

Supposedly the town also got money to buy a dozen or so e-bikes and put in some charging stations where you could use, free of charge, and sign out an e-bike using a swipe card like you'd use for the city bus or the library. Haven't seen that come to fruition though.

Mornin Ya'll... 15 and heading to a high of a whopping 38 today... Yeee Haaa!!!

Mrs. and I jumped on the bike last night to attend a buddy's Celebration of Life... it was 26 degree's and 15-20 mph winds, we rode 15 miles over and back... felt like we were the Thanksgiving Turkeys being thawed out!!! d'oh!
turns out we were the only ones that road... a couple other guys said they thought about it because that's what Jimmy would have wanted...

Jimmy was a biker also, but he was also prominent business man, running his own trucking company and real estates in Fl Key's, Cape Coral and farm ground and home just outside of our little town here in Illinois.

He got killed/ Run the Fugg over by an **** who had a BAC of 1.08 and was on his phone and didn't see him until to late... I met him back in the early 90's as he was an SP in our Guard Unit back then..

We're losing way to many friends nowadays!!!

My Condolences Russ.

It's a cool Sunday Morning, all of one minute left as I type this. It's 48° on the way to 52° today.

Mopping up five gallons of water in the lower garage. The backup pump doesn't work if it isn't plugged into a hot extension cord. d'oh!

Such nachas today.

My 5yo daughter would likely rat out the family to the gov't in return for being allowed to watch television.

Today I was working around the house and she wanted to see what was in the toolbox I was using. I spent 20 minutes showing her various sockets and ratchets and let her try them out on her playset, etc...

As I was putting the tools away, she turns to me and says "Dada, that was way better than watching T.V."

I wanted to give her a cigar and a bourbon and tell her she was going to do just fine.

Sadly, Stogie... unless you're luckier than me, it won't be long until she thinks she's got the world figured out and you're dumb.

On a brighter note... my dog thinks I'm a genius. But, well... he doesn't have opposable thumbs and can't open his own food.

Good morning from a rest area on I-10 E somewhere in Pecos county Texas. Had planned to be home today, but I only have 3 hours available on my clock and I’m 10 hours away. Gonna drive 3 hours this AM then pull over at a truck stop and rest until midnight when I’ll pickup 11 hours. I’ll head out and be home by around 7-8 AM.

Pkg from Fedex is out for delivery... I suppose I'll get the bike battery today. No idea when the bike will show up, but I do know the cargo baskets won't be shipped until sometime in January.

SOB, I will gladly revisit every weekend if it keeps her by my side and exploring new things!

MACS, She is a mini-me, so I fear you are right, although at this age all treats are dependent on me and her mom, so she tends to keep us in her good graces. For now...

They shipped the battery and the bike separate? Mine came in one large box but since the battery has to be shipped by land it took about 2 weeks to come from CA. It was mostly all assembled. Just had to put on the front wheel, handlebars, seat, and peddles. Took longer to unpackage it than it did for the final assembly.

It may very well be the bike AND battery... I won't know until it shows up. However, the box dimensions and weight are not commensurate with a bicycle.

WEIGHT 8 lbs / 3.63 kgs
DIMENSIONS 20x6x5 in.
TOTAL PIECES 1

Maybe it's a compressed and dehydrated bike where you just add water and it expands to full size.

When it arrives maybe in frustration, you can commit Assault on the Battery.
