- Himiway Cruiser Review | ElectricBikeReview.com
In the front to help absorb bumps is the suspension fork, this is a generic spring suspension setup but it does include clickers for lockout and preload adjust. I love the 100mm of travel and how good it feels in combination with the fat tires, this setup provides great comfort for both commuting and off-road use.

This is a petition to work with TORONTOTOKYO of team Spirit to update the PogChamp image icon so that we can actually have a good PogChamp face again. The current PogChamp is really lack luster. Please look into this so that we can start PogChamping again. There are lots of cam images from TI that is happening right now that you could use for the image.

I put too much weight on a table screwed into the wall and one of the screws (and some sort of plastic anchor) pulled right out. I'm pretty sure the wall is plaster but I don't know for sure
I'm renting and just moved into this place so I'd really like to fix this myself, as cheaply and easily as possible. I was thinking about just covering the anchor in superglue and shoving it back in the wall, would that work? Does anybody have a better idea?

2021.10.16 16:24 MaaDFoXX 2021 Complete Bingo Card Review - Row Three Mini-Reviews
I've just finished my 2021 Bingo Card, and will post mini-reviews for each of the rows in separate posts. I can't promise that the reviews are spoiler-free, hence the tag.
As well as the mini-reviews, I have provided a rating out of five, for each book. A 5/5 represents a book that I think is exceptional, and would happily keep on my bookshelf. A 4/5 represents a book I think is very good, that I would buy, but probably ultimately wouldn't keep. A 3/5 represents a book that is okay; I wouldn't buy it, but I would perhaps borrow it to read. A 2/5 I would not recommend reading. A 1/5 is a truly ghastly book that is a waste of organic material.
Of the 25 books read for this Bingo Card, I rated 5 books 5/5, 4 books 4/5, 11 books 3/5, and 5 books 2/5.
Now, on with the reviews!
Row 3 Books:
Mystery Plot Piranesi
- Mystery Plot - Piranesi by Susanna Clarke
- Comfort Read - Circe by Madeline Miller
- Published in 2021 - Master Artificer by Justin T Call
- Cat Squasher (500+ pages) - The Relentless Moon by Mary Robinette Kowal
- SFF-Related Non-Fiction, SWAPPED with a previous bingo card's tile: SFF Novel That Has a Title of 4 or More Words (2019 Bingo) - The City We Became by NK Jemisin
by Susanna Clarke
Between the corinthian columns and faun emblazoned on the dust jacket, all this talk of labyrinths made me wonder if there was anything to this tale that might approximate the slaying of the Minotaur by Theseus in the Minoan Labyrinth. Piranesi isn't a grand tale of adventure in the same vein as anything one might expect from a Greek Myth, but is rather a study in amnesia, and loss of identity. Piranesi is the titular protoganist, who chronicles his existence in the labyrinth (what he calls the House) in his journals. He is an eternal optimist, who finds comfort in attending to the dead of the House, deciphering messages from birds, and communicating on a bi-weekly basis with The Other (the other is the one who isn't him). At less than 250 pages, things don't stay quite so simple for long, and we experience the revelations as they happen through Piranesi's eyes. A rather alternative take on amnesia, Piranesi is content with his life - though the book is full of evil, this exists in our world; not in the world, the House, that Piranesi inhabits. Who are we to comment on which world is the better, and the more fitting.
Rating: 3/5 Choice Quote: Raphael:
I said that this is a perfect world. But it's not. There are crimes here, just like everywhere else. Comfort Read Circe
by Madeline Miller
I really need to find some new comfort reads. I started Circe again having fallen in love with the tale Miller weaves. But my, does it make for an angry, fraught read full of injustice and Gods you want to slap. I love myths, and Madeline Miller's exceptional reframings of classic Greek tales and characters are among the best: The Song of Achilles, which is told through the eyes of Achilles' lover Patroclus; and Circe, which follows the eponymous nymph - a lesser God - daughter of Helios and the first Witch. There is so much to unpack in Circe, that I quite simply don't have the space for. I will try as best I can. Circe spends her first hundred generations learning nothing. A product of her environment, the halls of Helios are filled with vain Gods who are as toddlers, expecting the world to bend to their whims and making consolations for no-one, albeit for those with greater powers than themselves. At first spending her days at her father's feet, hoping to garner some small scrap of his attention, Circe eventually learns the nature of the world of Gods. It is vapid, vacuous, unjust and churlish. She wants no part of it. She is more than they could hope to be, and it angers me that they never come to realise it. Puny Gods. The book deals with issues of power, of mortality and godhead, of regret, remorse and the things one will do to protect that which they love. How far one will overshoot in their quest of protection. As well as these topics, which are themselves of no small consequence, Circe deals with mythmaking. The heroes we know of from the Greek myths are only heroic because we see what they have done post-mortem. We were not there to deal with the fallout. We were not the servants cruelly murdered to spite another, the sons and daughters that had to contend with their fathers' ire, beyond their own making though it was. To emphasise the need for caution when one is tempted to myth make, at the centre of it all is Circe. A footnote in the tales, for she did not strive for power or glory. While the other Gods waged wars through the proxy of mortals, Circe simply sought happiness. I am so very glad this book was written, as it is nothing short of tender and inspiring. When is the next book, please, Miller?
Rating: 5/5 Choice Quote: There are so many. Miller's writing is beautiful. Here are some:
In a solitary life, there are rare moments when another soul dips near yours, as stars once a year brush the earth. Such a constellation was he to me.
Gods pretend to be parents, but they are children, clapping their hands and shouting for more.
"You have always been the worst of my children," he said. "Be sure you do not dishonour me."
"I have a better idea. I will do as I please, and when you count your children, leave me out". Published in 2021 Master Artificer
by Justin T Call
Master Artificer, the second book in Justin T Call's 'The Silent Gods' series, makes the first installment look like an especially long prologue. If Master of Sorrows was the game tutorial, Master Aritificer is an unveiling of the entire map. Whereas the first book stuck closely to Annev - the Vessel for the supposedly dead and much reviled God Keos - the follow up follows numerous threads, each serving to build out the world and the fairly dense magic system at play. This has mixed results. While the world-building does a worthy job of building different levels of intrigue, the characters are often very difficult to stomach. Myjun is just horrendous, and by the end of the book I still couldn't displace the feeling that I would have rather she just died at the end of the first book. Similarly, Kenton and Elder Tosan are insufferable, but not in a 'you're awful but maddeningly brilliant' way. All three characters share similar traits; they will blindly follow their ill-conceived traditionalist views, even when (as they do pretty much all the time) they defy logic and reason. When there is discourse with others and they have the opportunity to explore their thoughts, feelings, actions, and the 'why' of them, they never follow this through to any resolution and the story moves on; a storytelling swerve rather than letting natural discourse flow. Characterisation that seemed to be (almost) entirely on-point, however, was Annev's. In this book, Annev begins to experience alienation and isolation, and this feeds into him showing more apathetic character traits that lean into the prophesy of him being this world's Dark Lord. Despite this, Annev is still easily the most likable person in the series, perhaps a little bit of an issue when he could end up turning the world into ruin. He would do so, and we would clap. I greatly enjoyed Master of Sorrows, and while I can see what this book was trying to accomplish with building out the world and setting the stage for potentially world-ending events, Master Artificer feels overwrought and hollow in comparison.
Rating: 3/5 Choice Quote: Oyru
: Perhaps when we have hurt someone we love, it is natural to hold something in reserve, something to show we are not wholly monsters. Perhaps it is a cry for help or redemption. Or perhaps in a mad world, we cling to a single virtue so we can excuse the other atrocities we allow ourselves to commit. Cat Squasher (500+ pages) The Relentless Moon
by Mary Robinette Kowal
Kowal's Lady Astronaut series is perhaps the most consistent I've read in recent years. Consistently brilliant, it is a joy to be immersed in the alternate history that she has crafted. When a meteor hits off the Chesapeake Bay at the beginning of the first novel (The Hugo-award winning The Calculating Stars), Earth's climate takes a catastrophic turn. To address this, the international community (spearheaded by the US) prioritises plans to make the Moon and Mars habitable. The Relentless Moon is the third installment in the series, and picks up in the early 1960's, largely occupying the same timespan as the second book, which sees the first manned expedition to Mars. While the first two books follow Dr. Elma York, the first 'Lady Astronaut' (who is one of the astronauts on the First Mars Expedition), here attention is turned to Nicole Wargin, a friend of Elma and incredibly capable astronaut and diplomat in her own right. I loved following Elma through the first two books, so was a little unnerved by the change in perspective. I shouldn't have been; The Relentless Moon is the pinnacle of the series so far. An extroardinary tale filled with subterfuge, heartache, politics and optimism, I will be very frosty if this doesn't win the Hugo.
Rating: 5/5 Choice Quote: Nicole
: If there were a God, he would not have blown the rocket. He would not have slammed a Meteor into the Earth. But it gave Kenneth comfort and I would not deny him that, even if what had saved those people was science. Redundancies and methods and practice had saved them. SFF Novel That Has a Title of 4 or More Words (2019 Bingo, substituted) The City We Became
by NK Jemisin
Well this is a mess. So much so that I am surprised this made it through the editing process untarnished. Jemisin references Lovecraft several times throughout the novel, but noticably not to pay homage. Lovecraft, for all his influence, was a veritable piece of shit, and Jemisin is very much aware of this. Instead, she seeks to twist Lovecraft's creations, and give them a royal ass kicking. Unfortunately, she misses the mark, for several reasons. Firstly, she adheres to Lovecraftian axioms of unknowability; that is, the Eldritch cities are so alien that they induce dread due to their non-Euclidean geometry. But isn't this just another form of Lovecraft's xenophobia, embodied by his own creations? That which is different and alien (read: foreign) is scary? And really, why is non-Euclidean geometry that scary? Is it really too much to imagine? I wager it really isn't. Secondly, there's the tricky business of the plotting. The big bad in The City We Became tries to get one of the borough's of New York on her side, by explaining that every time a City is born in one universe (we're going by the Many World theory here, with each stacked on top of each other in an infinite layer), it punches through all the other layers where it exists as a geographical location, and destroys them. The big bad professes to wanting to stop this from happening. Seems fair enough really, given that supposedly these parallel universes are in every sense real. They have people that exist like we do. So yeah, I'd be on board with that too (although this requires keeping people separated, so that feels pretty wrong). But the big bad then reveals the truth in front of the borough she has coerced, that she (who is also a city) wants to bring herself over to this universe and take it over entirely, destroying everything and everyone. And the borough doesn't bat an eyelid at being lied to. In addition, the Cities in our world seem totally okay with destroying every other universe to be born. Genocide on a multiversal level. Mix in the social, racial and gender politics and it all gets very messy. The redeeming features of the book are these politics when not mixed up with the plot. But, as someone who already knows all this anyway, it's all a bit 'yeah, I know that these injustices exist. At this point, you'd have to be incredibly ignorant not to'. Ultimately, this hews closer to Stephen King than anything else, but even the Stephen King books I've enjoyed the least I've still enjoyed more than this. And don't get me started on the 'muons are nicer in this universe' nonsense.
Rating: 2/5 Choice Quote:
He is falling in love with a city, and men in love are not always considerate or wise.
Main takeaways: More Mary Robinette Kowal and Madeline Miller please.
