    Alfine Sgs700 internal hub, index shifter. Problem. Shifter pod twists while changing gears. Shightly rough changing gears, like something is rubbing/catching. slightly noticeable performing standard 1-shift Rapid "2x" shifting is a no-go. Pod visibly flexes. Shifter is solid. No movement on bars. Nothing appears out of place when removing plastic parts (housing, indicator) everything is clean no grease buildup. I tried using shifting nothing attached with no changes. Did everything but replace actual shifter and cassette joint (sp41 housing, ss cable, shimano sp41 cable grease, T9 on shifter internals, shimano special grease "neon yellow" on cassette joint) (hub assembly is correct, shifters properly adusted, hub serviced regularly monthly oil change)

(apply @ 18, so just need enough for age 18) Do i need to regain WORK CREDITS then reapply? I applied 2 times. I had more than enough work credits at time of applying. But somehow i now dont have enough time. 1st application = i had 2 extra years (working since 16, social security starts counting @ 18) 2nd application = approved approx 2.5 years later for SSI not both SSDI/SSI (only paid for current application) DISABLED @ 18 can t work (head injury = seizures; cognitive disorder = slowed processing from seizures/medication) (safety concerns, transportation, education, speed capabilities) ___ cant live off of <$800 (cost of rent) currently living with friends, helping with food and $300.

  • Can a city create an ordinance which breaks STATE LAW?

    It is to my perspective that any laws written must be followed by all government. And laws can be more restrictive but must no conflict with other laws which they have no control over. City must follow state. State must follow U.S. GOVERNMENT. City police officer ticketed me $25 flat. For breaking a city ordinance/law. When I questioned it, knowing that exact state law, pointing out that same officer is breaking that law. He stated that city written out that uniformed on duty police officers, are allowed to break such law. And they don t enforce such law equally throughout city, only near police station (4 blocks all directions) I researched it on officer referenced website. And law was written to exclude officers. Also such law is not properly indexed within their CITY ORDINANCE. Even though there is signs posted it is excluded from proper category. I will fight ticket, and confident I will win due to technicalities. If not it is only another $10 (city officers unaware of state law 2012, writing their own version 2016; then not properly filing it. It was completely ignored in proper category, without any references to other/filed category) spoken to local cooperative they also agree with me and are in process of contacting their lawyers for questions.
