>no mixing black and silver components
>no mixing black and brown leather
good lad.

That is such a completely beautiful, well considered bike and photo... and then you notice the ergobends and the whole picture goes red and pinarello changes to helter skelter
very nice
202cm, yes, that's a 64cm frame. Don't worry, it has Dolmen tubing and was built for heavy loads.

I'm saving up for some Carradice saddle bags, brown leather and British racing green canvas.

ergobend bars and Shimano components are standard on a 97 Pinarello Asolo, sorry dude.

I mountain bike in a 10 year old skateboard helmet.
I'm frustrated with my rear hub. I'm fat as fuck-and simultaneously strong as fuck-and broke something in the rear end. My bike has been in the shop for about three weeks and I want to ride. It's the longest I've been "bikeless" since I started riding in earnest about a year ago.

I want to cuss my bike but really I know it's the rider (me) rather than my bike. My bike has been the best thing in my life this year. Stoics say when you're mad at something remember your own faults and you'll forget your anger.

Gonna get a MTB frame and put some fat 3'' 29er tires on it for maximum plush ASAP tho. Probably a Krampus. Any better suggestions?
In what world does fixing a hub take 3 weeks, even allowing time to order parts?

i use my one and only hardtail for everything -commuting, grocery shopping, trail, dirts, long distance trips and regular 40/60km rides. i keep it lubed, aligned and kind of clean.

but if you ask me right now, i don't know the model of the shifters, breaks or derailleurs (i know they are shimano though), or how many teeth has any of the teethy things that engage with the chain, or how worn are the brake pads, or almost nothing about my bike.

i just ride it and fix any bit that brake at the time it brakes.
One wherein it was hard to diagnose the problem because it was a hard problem to repeat for the bike mechanic + a place very remote from civilization.

I'm not talking about people who really need them like food suppliers, firefighters, doctors and the like. I'm talking about ordinary people who use the car only for driving to: work, offices, shops. Shouldn't such people have somehow limited access to private cars in big cities, for example:

-on certain days only drivers whose cars have even or odd registration number can enter the city

-city authorities provide free public transport which does not require buying tickets by people using it

-Supporting the development of alternatives to private cars such as taxis and Ubers

There would probably be other ideas to reduce road traffic in places where it can be replaced by public transport, but for the time being I have no other ideas.

What do you think about it, do you agree with it, if not then try to argue why you think it is necessary for each person to have their own private means of transport, even if it leads to traffic jams?

This is more or less what my neighbourhood did. They planned huge suburban blocks but superimposed a bunch of walking paths ("linear parks") over the extremely suburban system. Using them shortens walking/biking times and makes walking much more enjoyable. I've literally walked for hours and enjoyed it. The only issue is that aside from a small commercial center in the middle of the developments, there isn't anything within walking distance.

The neighbourhood in my previous post, however, had a pond in the middle, which was nice, but obstructed mobility. There are two bridges (that I didn't know about) leading to the elementary schools there, but their placement isn't ideal, and I'm pretty sure they don't get cleared of snow in the winter making them unusable. It's not as terribly planned as I made it seem, but it's not conducive to transit nonetheless.
All they would have to do in the us is zone some small commercial inside suburbs within walk/bike distance so people could get some milk and eggs when needed. It would benefit small business and not the giant strip malls filled with multinationals.
I can argue the opposite. It isn't for the working poor, but it's an integral part of the transportation systems, especially in areas where space is at a premium. It can carry more people than cars, and if it's grade separated it will be faster than driving.

Now I'm not saying cars are or should be obsolete BUT when it comes to commuting, where most people are going to the CBD or an industrial park, transit is much more efficient than cars.
Ideally yes. But it's just not feasible for that neighbourhood.

A few older neighbourhoods in my city have some of that though. One that comes to mind stretched over 4 major East/West streets, all of which zoned commercial (mostly mom and pops too!), while the rest were residential and institutional. You were usually no more than a 1/4 mile from the store you needed. Despite being literally 100 years old, a tiny house in that neighbourhood costs a fortune (compared to the average house in my city).

King Schools’ video ground school
I took my discovery flight today lads, I loved every moment of it! We did it in a Cessna 172 but I'll be taking lessons in a Cessna 150.
It was a beautiful day too, almost no clouds or wind. We were flying around at 2,000ft and I could see my town and 2 towns over, as well as a couple distant lakes. As soon as we took off I knew that I wanted to continue lessons
An amazing experience, I couldn't stop smiling and asking questions
Yay :)
What's the closest thing to a twin engine Cessna Caravan? There are plenty of bigger options, and lots of smaller ones not made for cargo, but I can't think of any in between.
odd question, but do you know what airport that is?

yow friends, ned help with wheels.
wanna upgrade my stock wheels of my road bike (a felt F75,its a alu bike kinda like a caad10).

i aint got crazy budget, somethin like 300-400usd for the set, maybe a bit more cause i know its little. was looking at campy zonda's , but in some places i read there are better more modern options for the same budget, but they don mention what.. so here i am, total newbie to wheels.

btw: dont want too big profile, 40 max i think. thaknssssssss
Look into Neugents at that price range.
Go get handmade custom order at universal cycles... 105 hubs, butted spokes, and whatever rim you can afford... Might stay true forever

With this budget, i‘d buy a set of used Mavic Ksyrium SL. Almost indestructible and pretty light around 1400g.

Is this accurate?

A quality leather shoe has a wooden splint* in the sole. If it is broken you should replace it but the shoe is more comfortable.
Retarded people break it on purpose.
A saddle doesn't even have anything like that. All you have is the leather flexing a bit. There is no point where anything is "broken"

*some have them made out of bone, plastic or steel but that's not the point
A leather shoe and a leather saddle both mould to the shape of your foot / butthole
That takes like one or two longer tours (80-100km)
The rest is mainly the leather losing tension.
There should be a screw on your saddle which can increase it again.
Don't forget to apply conditioner and let it fully soak in before you do that.

A leather saddle should never be "soft".
>All you have is the leather flexing a bit. There is no point where anything is "broken in"
>That takes like one or two longer tours (80-100km)
also bullshit

the rest is just you talkin
When you have a point after a few months* where your saddle is suddenly way more comfy it has lost tension.
If this is to complicated for you maybe don't use leather saddles.
I have nothing against you riding a saddle with less tension but be aware that that shortens the life cycle of the leather.

*several and up to two years on high quality leather and proper care.

Technically a motorcycle by regulation.

Why'd they illustrate it with a Bulleid pacific.

if they used an American locomotive they might be implying that American railroads are old and noncompetitive, which would piss off the AAR and cause problems. Using a british train fixes this problem because all Americans universally agree that britian is an unfixable shithole. Only canadians would get mad but they are also canadian.

Take them off, clean the threads on both crank arms and pedals thoroughly, put a light coating of grease, reinstall and torque to specs. You just ensured not only will they come back off easily enough, but that they'll never *creak*.

You can tell people over & over not to buy chink shit but poor people are pretty dumb, that's why they're poor.
I have that same POS crank extractor and after a a night of struggling to remove the arms, I said fuckit before I fubar it. So I took it to a shop instead.
This is why you use grease with teflon additives if you mount it.
No oil and no WD40 they dry and act like glue after a few years

That particular tracking thing is something I've been using to create an overlay map for my Garmin Edge 800. But it also has its uses on my computer as a tool for seeing places I needed to go. Even without having a GPS it could be useful for keeping track of where you've been. I made a setup guide for it a while back. The basic process is to download your local road network, and delete the stuff you have ridden. A lot of manual editing at the start if you already covered many roads. https://www.dropbox.com/s/vg1ir955nz9xb8u/Unvisited%20Road%20Garmin%20Overlay.pdf?dl=0

Since I do a bunch of OpenStreetMap editing I just used some of the free programs available for that. The JOSM editor will easily display hundreds of gps traces at once so you can prune out the roads you already covered. Whenever I'd do a new ride I'd just load the gps trace and delete some more roads. The program supports a variety of background maps including OSM and Bing satellite.

There is a website now that does the matching using data from Strava, which is probably good enough for most people and requires no effort. Depending how your local paths and roads were mapped on OSM, some won't be included for matching, as the site excludes service roads and footways. http://wandrer.earth

Strava's Personal Heatmaps (a paid feature) are another way to track city coverage. http://www.jonathanokeeffe.com/strava/map.php does something similar using Strava data but is less permanent, they cache your rides for a while but I'm not sure how long.

If planning to use gps traces and want functionality similarish to the above 2 options, I also put together a guide for creating an offline gps database that displays all your gps traces at once. One thing I like about that program is that it lets you create very high resolution images.
