IDASHO It worked out 110%

Its really hard to explain how well it works, but I can feel it and I can see it watching others move on it.

The rest of the basement level is still slab on grade though, so its VERY evident walking from the next room which is nothing but an epoxy coated concrete slab onto this floor. The difference is incredible

CarterKaft That does look excellent, does it work like you hoped?

IDASHO Been a while, and it shows. Studio is done and already in use.

Only bits left is to re-do one of the carpet stair treads, and the $800 mirror that will be installed on the long wall. Small one.... 6'x10'

Pics tell most of the story.

Note the ramp used to transition from concrete slab level to the elevated finished floor. Ramp is located at the bottom of the stairs.
Elevation change is roughly 3" in 40"

Also, floor system is vented thru the baseboards, so no holes in the floor it self.

IDASHO Couple of update pics for the dance studio project.

Second and final layer of BalticBirch ply is down, completing the subfloor.

A couple of coats of sanding sealer will help prep the floor for primer, then adhesive, then flooring.

Coming together though.

IDASHO Yep, 12" centers

Not sure if it has enough give for that.... but what do I know...
I have no idea what a floor for that requires. Perhaps??

The idea is to have give, but not be noticeable.
Once sheeted it will feel like a traditional framed floor, but with imperceptible "give". I assume it will have a "break in" period as well, as the materials normalize with the temp/humidity of the room, and traffic.

I currently have it sheeted with the first layer of baltic birch, and movement is noticeable, but I believe it is the 3/8 ply on 12" centers that I'm feeling....
Glue isnt set either.

Pt_Ranger_V8 What's the grid size? Looks like about 12" square?

looks neat. With a mat, could it double for gymnastics/tumbling/MMA training?

IDASHO MRI results are in...

Lumbar Stenosis, Acquired and Congenital.
As well as disc problems, L2-3 & L4-5

Regular doc didnt even bother to call me back, just sent out a referral.
So I have my first consultation with a neurosurgeon this week.

Been fighting this stuff for years though, so I knew something would finally come to pass.
Not terribly sure I want to go for surgery right away. But will hold any kind of thoughts, good or bad best I can until the wife and I talk to the doc.



That said, basement remodel efforts continue.
Broken back and all....

I have managed to get all the floor framing in.

"pads" are 1/2" baltic birch ply, wet set with PL Premium, with every other being fastened to the concrete slab with ramset nails & 22 gauge gun.

They two courses of 1x2 VG fir, glued & brad nailed.

So if you look close, there is no direct path between the top surface and the concrete slab, except for the perimeter.
The field is "sprung", flexing happening between each of the birch ply pads.
Perimeter is "hard" fastened to avoid any kind of floor-baseboard molding movement/noise.

Laying the two-layer of 3/8 baltic birch (to serve as subfloor) is up next.

If the little 125cc swapped CT90 can handle 2-up, this thing sure the hell can.



Its considerably more bike. Looking forward to it, it is a very fun little bike


Nice, I will need something like that as well. Wanting a light bike (can be bigger than what you have, bigger truck), with saddle boxes and an extended seat for two (for short trips).

I am enjoying your builds..... always appreciate the pictures and write ups.

Happy 2020!!!







*Had a great (2500+ mile) winter trip with the camper back to CA to visit peeps.



*Done a few camper mods



*Finally had imaging done on my back.... seems Ive been living with a fractured L-3 for a while now.... (more on that later...)



*Found a small china-bike locally, SSR140TR- "big wheel"



and...



*am looking to dive into the AC-Tig world, so Im shopping





Peeps like photos.... so here is a shot of the little bike, as advertised... I tore the thing down into 50+ pieces this afternoon, as it will be going under the knife. Also needed some maintenance....



Its a 140CC thumper with adjustable front and rear suspension, real brakes, 14/17" wheels, and weighs less than 160# I need to toss some goodies at it to make it street legal, and provisions for a rack/bags, but I should still sneak under 200# wet/fueled.



Should work out great!





Nice bike..... bummer about the back.

Can you make the bike seat 2 in a pinch? Looks tiny but capable.

That's awesome. The two of you look great together.

I met my wife dancing almost 25 years ago. Asked her if she knew how, she said, "duh". Well...all girls said that, but this one really could. Turns out she had learned western dancing as a young teen in 4-H and later snuck into bars in HS to dance to live bands. I had the same story. Now we're old and getting gray and have taught our daughters to western swing/jitterbug, 2-step, polka, and waltz.

Oldest daughter sponsored a family dance last weekend and we had 100 kids, 30 parents, and collected 200+ lbs of food for the food bank at the local school.

We bought a scale and weigh many bikes. Manufacturers weight are always way lighter than actual. I would bet that KX weighs 250 ready to ride.

Lightest bike we've weighed is xr200 236. Ready to ride. You can go crazy trying to lighten these. I doubt the Chinese is much lighter, but I could be wrong. I would do the xr though. The heaviest portions are the motor, swing arm and wheels. Motor you can't lighten. you can build a chromo swingarm and get trials wheels and lighten it up.

Oh and we need videos of dancing!
