My Favorit month (Day 18 - 43)

At the end of the month I disliked the Favorit bike. The reason: I got '8' on my rear wheel. The guy who has sold me this bike also told me that it has very good rims made of dural and they will last forever. Well it took only two weeks till it got broken. After the holiday in Italy I had to take this bike to bike service in Vienna (recommend!) where I paid 41€ for a new-old wheel and also rear cassette.

Because of a difference between the old and new-old system - whole bike was very loud while I was pedaling. At that time I was not very happy about this bike. And few days after the service - I got flat tire!

So last week I have bought a new tube, I have fixed the brakes and used WD40 for the chain and now it works perfectly!
Riding my city bike to work and back and also anywhere in the city makes a pleasure that this bike should provide.

I like the Favorit bike again. And it is not just month anymore :-).


  1. This was written very well. I'm also glad that you are now able to get around on your bike without having any problems.

First Hawaii, then Oregon

Why? Hawaii - the international conference on MR (ISMRM) happened to be in Honolulu in 2017. Oregon - to counterbalance volcanic islands with sunny beaches and volcanic mountain with snow.

Part One: No Glamping in Hawaiian Islands

Island One: Kauai

After comfy 24-hour economy flights with Eva and Fabian, and just as I started to watch Moana, we landed in Lihue (Kauai). I assembled with Pedro, we took a rental car and quickly found our room in cosy Kauai Palms Hotel. For lunch next day we met Andrea in Kapaa and together we headed to see Wailua Falls, not far from Lihue. We left Andrea in Kapaa later that day and for our next night we were going to camp at Koke'e State Park Campground (thanks Evka for help with fixing my tent!). The night was very cold, roosters were loud and views from Kalalau Lookout were astonishing! It was time to warm up and see some beach so we decided to get a nice cup of coffee and visit a beach with restricted access for rental cars - Barking Sands Beach in 

Yamaha S08 - sticky keys repair

My keyboard Yamaha S08 suffered from several "sticky keys" disease already a year, perhaps more. That saying, I am pretty bad piano player. However, I like to have my devices fully functional for any cases.
I have found a very helpful guide, but with no photos. I made some for better visualization of the repair.
First, I unfastened all screws from both sides:

Second, I unfastened all screws from a wooden base plate which were holding the part with electronics.

Then I unfastened the golden screws holding the whole keyboard to the wood. The keyboard was now accessible from both sides.

The last step is described in the following video. It was just removing the sticky keys and reinserting them without a metal spring coming inside. The end of the metal spring has been left outside of the key:

So far it works well!

Inspiring music in Casey Neistat's vlogs

After watching a few vlogs by Casey Neistat on Youtube, I couldn't help notice the well-chosen music in the background. Particularly music by one artist named Julian Avila. Here is his music:
Inspired, I took several months old videos I shot on GoPro Hero 2 when I was biking to Kahlenberg in the rain. After a few hours and two whiskeys, this came from my computer:
