not to plug too much, but a friend of mine has an up to date site containing every piece of railroad equipment preserved in the United States. If you're ever curious about if something is still around or not, it really is a good one-stop-shop.

Nice site. Added to my bookmarks. Tell your buddy he did a good job!

Would you buy a bike from a LBS with a "no test ride" policy?

On the one hand it's fair that they don't want people to just try shit and then order it online for cheaper.

On the other hand, since they have eliminated the reason for me to go to the LBS, why shouldn't I just order it online for cheaper?

>maybe they will fix your flats

But I can already do that, why would I go to the LBS for something so stupid?

It strikes me as somewhat dumb. Sort of a like a shoe store that won't let me try on a pair before buying them. And even then, a pair of shoes is way cheaper than a bike.

Good question. Much better to have a trap work on your bike.

The last time I bought a bike, it was after riding every model in that market segment that the shop offered, at an event organised by the shop. On a different occasion they also gave me a bike to test ride for a whole day, unsupervised, however I pleased. I would not have dropped the coin I did without that kind of service.

Just Built My 1st Wheel. Rim: used mavic open pro,. New straight spokes and forumula hub. 3 cross. The Bicycle Wheel by Jobst Brandt was my guide. The parts and labour cost more than a used complete wheel I'd find on craigslist, but I wanted to try building one myself. In hindsight I should've just pulled out a junk wheel from the trash behind a bike shop to strip and rebuild it.

What are the best pedals for fat biking? thinking about getting these bad boys.

What are your favorite pedals for mtb/fatbiking /n/?

Are certain pedals best for fat bike?

yes

maybe try the pedal thread that has 282 replies: >>1312052

>>1347945
dimension or redline pinned pedals are the only thing 99% of people need and they're like $15-$25

Didn't see a thread for clothing so let's make one this is for posting:

>You favorite kits
>Advice
>??????

Just look at this fucking Jersey (Velocio Unity 2019). I saw this and I was stricken, never have I laid eyes on something so stunning. I've been searching for a new kit that really stuck out to me for months and I just found this today.

It's a shame it's a pre-order and doesn't ship to mid July but it'll be worth the wait.

I also plan to buy some of there other stuff too becasue any company that can make something this striking has got to have good stuff.

Holy shit bros, I managed to grab this jersey + matching bibs I've been after.

>Out of stock everywhere
>CC get's it but doesn't have my size
>Check today and they have one jersey and one pair of bibs in my size

I half debated ordering the gloves but decided against it since Santini's site claims I need a near XL in the gloves which doesn't seem right.
>>
>>1348187
Fuck it, bought the gloves anyway. Had to buy them direct from Santini and I ordered a medium since that's what I wear in literally every other brand of gloves.

Cologne Stadtbahn is so practical, but so unaesthetic. Love the network with the elevated ring lines and all that good stuff, but the stations look purely utilitarian and boring as all hell.
