1ˢᵗ Ride of 2019 and Davinci Resolve

I haven’t bought Davinci Resolve, but I’m tempted. I’m also seriously tempted to buy the GoPro Fusion, it looks like one hell of a 360° camera. But both are expensive and in my hands… it’d be like using an canon to kill a fly.

So I’ve taken it upon myself to learn Davinci Resolve as much as possible before I consider buying either, there’s no point in psending money on tools I don’t know how to use, and the free version of resolve works well enough for my purposes.

But wait, there’s more. Last week (10 days ago) I quit smoking. For the most part it’s not been bad as I thought it would be, though I am using an E-Cig, Logic Curv is my weapon of choice, and so far yes, it’s worked. There have been some moments of weakness, my sister smokes and I’ve had a couple off her. The good news is that those two fags really made me want to throw up, tasted absolutely foul and made me cough for about an hour each.

Anywhoo, in this video I’ve done some colour correcting (the hero 6 is excellent but I always record the colour as flat), so yes I’m currently still learning about colour grading, I’ve also accidentally created a hyperlapse (I think) by trying to convert a video to timelapse.

 

Carrera Crossfire-E Electric bike – Power Cut

Now fixed: https://the-bionic-cyclist.co.uk/2017/10/15/the-dreaded-power-cut-fixed/

It seems that despite Halfords and SRSuntour’s best efforts owners are still suffering power cuts from this otherwise excellent bike. I have a fix for this, sadly it’s not permanent but it will reduce the cut out to a minor inconvenience.

On the rear of the bike (left hand side, by the rear wheel) there is a neoprene patch held in place with velcro, remove this patch to show a large barrel connector, this is the power supply to the motor on the rear wheel, disconnect and reconnect the barrel and reattach the neoprene. All done it takes less than a minute.

That’s it, it really is that simple, I do this and I’m good for another 50-75 miles before I get another power cut. Or you could do this before you set off and hopefully prevent a power cut.

Let me know if this works for you or if it’s still frustrating you, or if you’ve cured the problem completely let us all know how you did it.
