    just paid in full for something I've wanted for close to 5 years... Larry Harry. I got the white e6100 version with a big two seater cargo box for the kiddos that converts to a flat bed for utility stuff.

    In a way, I'm more excited for this bike than any bike I've ever had. and I've had a lot of fooooking bikes.

    when I get it, it will look like this:

    Okay. It's pretty good.

    I'm skeptical

    I inherited a massive mouse problem when we moved into our house. At my most successful I caught 9 of them in two days. Probably caught 30 in total.

    I've solved the problem, much to everyone's surprise considering the scope of the infestation. Haven't seen a mouse in a year. Therefore I feel qualified to offer my advice.

    There are three principals and all must be met to be successful.

    1. You have to catch them. Use more than one type of trap (modern baited kill traps AND a non-baited multi catch such as the Kness Ketch-All-Mousetrap)

    2. You must clean your home like a neurotic. Take trash out every night, full or not.

    3. You must find and seal all entry points. There's no way around this. I crawled around my foundation with a flashlight. Anything I could fit a pencil in I filled in with Cooper wool and then caulk.

    There probably a wake board in there as well.

    We make pour over every day. Recently our reusable high quality filter started clogging about halfway through the process slowing the drip to a painful rate.

    Our grinder is set to a 3/4 of the way to full coarseness.

    I note that the grind is very inconsistent though with a very fine dust accumulating.

    I assume this is what is clogging the filter.

    Thoughts?

    It's actually feeling a lot better at the moment!

    Because you topped it off.

    See how fast you lose fluid.

    Still sounds like master clutch cylinder

    As in pedal gets stuck down? I've had the problem when master cylinder went. Had to pull the pedal back up with my foot every time I shifted and constantly add new fluid.

    It's not the CRB. or at least I can't see how that would be possible.

    Doubt its the linkage.

    Doubt its the slave as the slave cylinder has the smaller amount of mechanical advantage and you'd probably just lose the ability to disengage the clutch, rather than it coming up aggressively.

    Hankering for a bike because I'm bored and haven't done anything for myself in a long time.

    Never owned one.

    Do I go cheap as possible (think underpowered barn-find kick starter cb500 type thing) or do I buy something new and cool that I love?

    Stupid question I know.
