500watt and 13ah battery. This build was fun and is almost all new parts. But the bit I liked the best is that it is our first bamboo bike build. I think the frame is beautiful and will be good fun riding it off-road. Bamboo has a Higher Specific Compressive Strength (capacity to carry loads) […]

One of the names God has chosen for himself is Father. Why would he do that, when so many fathers abuse and cause problems for their children and their wives. And I understand. As a father myself I make mistakes. I say the wrong thing or don’t do the right things. I wish I could […]
Where do fly’s go when it rains? What happened to the first 6 ups? Why is your index finger the same size as your nostrils? Why is the word dictionary in the dictionary? Why is it that night falls but day breaks? Why is it considered necessary to nail down the lid of a coffin? […]

The eerie mist enveloped me, a shadow slid into my view. Unbeknown to me, figures tiptoed behind me. In a breath, I was hidden. Darkness of the sky blending in with the bag. My head banged against something. In the silence of the night, I was left. The distant sound of the car echoed around […]
