Because it's a poor country of poor people (that get even poorer thanks to government and their own stupidity).
Public transport is the form of transport for the rich societies. But, not ones where only select ones are rich. In this regard US is very similar.

We don't have roads either. 50 years of socialism, baby.

Why are GA pilots such imbeciles? They will apply military decals on flying tincan trainer planes and debate to the end of the earth about the 9.8 gallons per hour they can manage at 143.7 KIAS

I swear, half my PPL training was just the instructor trying to make me do stupid chit, like flapless landings. I mean like, it's a Cessna, big deal, it will go 5 knots faster over the numbers

If you have numbness & pain around your penis, it's a problem.
If you don't, there's no problem.
It's not inevitable. It's a poor fit issue. I don't have any numbness or pain or erectile problems. Infact doing regular cardio means my erections are great.

If your dick and gooch hurt and/or are getting numb when you ride then your saddle is adjusted wrong, or your saddle is the wrong size and/or shape, or both.

Hey /n/, I'm usually from /o/ but I bought a bike recently. I tried to be original with my purchase, but I realize I literally could not be LESS original than this bike. Sure is pretty, though.

>The wheels weren't made perfectly round, and can't be trued because the rim isn't perfectly round. a couple of the decals are misaligned under the clearcoat, the rod brakes, even at perfect alignment, are marginal.

That is part of the charm is it not? In life it is the imperfections and the memories that go along with them that make such an item valuable.

Despite the darker aspects of the cultural revolution, I am sure there were also many happy memories made on the flying pigeon.

If this were a vintage Pigeon, I'd agree with you about the imperfections, but sadly, it is not, this a circa 2008 Pigeon. Quality Control supposedly went down in the 90s when they stopped being required transport

That, however, is true. Of the people I spoke to about the bike who knew what it was, They all spoke fondly.

It was originally a two-year project to demonstrate the viability of federally funded mass transit (a new concept at the time). The service was popular enough that it was kept after the demonstration ended. The village of Skokie wanted to maintain rail service after the North Shore Line quit, and it’s also the location of the “L” shops so the CTA would’ve needed to keep some of the route regardless.

I've been making a lot of railway journeys this summer and have just done the Mid Cheshire line which was nice and the Penistone line which was beautiful but not very comfy being stuck in a crowded pacer for almost an hour and a half.

Planning to do the Settle > Carlisle line in about two weeks so looking forward to that.

Where have my fellow britbongs been lately - made any nice train journeys? Any hidden gems? What about nice/unique stations visited?

That doesn't really count, HS1 is an extension of the TGV network.

Recently installed Avid SD7 v-brakes. The rear is feeling particularly... spongy. I don't have a metal file so all I was to do open up the hole with a pick after cutting the housing. Are burrs from bad cuts likely for this? I was hoping to just throw an end cap on it and look away.

I remember seeing these as a little kid.

Whenever the CPR Drake St shops in Vancouver had difficulty keeping one running they'd send the particular unit over to Victoria's Russel's roundhouse. The mechanics there had tuning the units down to a fine art. Interestingly they could be tuned to run well for low idle/switching or power on the road, but not both.

Imagine that day:
Standing there on the tarmac looking at that plane & thinking 'should I or shouldn't I?' fuckit.. do it! Remove the wheel chocks. Can't use stairs so climb up & into the fuselage. whew! ..a bit tricky but do-able. Take a quick look around as you seal the door to see if anyone noticed. Nope! ..good so far.. The heart racing as you slide into the pilots seat. The engines spooling up. Release the parking brake. Nudging the throttles forward... yeesss! starting to move. Uh-oh they're squawking at me on the radio. Taxi to end of runway.. heh! no security racing towards me in cars yet. I cant believe I got this far. Lets roll! Advance throttles.... V1.. rotate.. and aaawaaaaay we go! Wow lookit the view of the Olympics *sigh*... What a beautiful sight. Lets see what this baby can do... YAHOO!! What a rush!! hmm 500 lbs fuel remaining... meh! ATC guy sounds concerned & he's trying to talk me back.. is he crazy? Why would he want me back over a population center? oh well.. I don't wanna anyways. Too bad, ATC-guy seems pretty ok. lol.. his boss is prob behind him telling him to 'get that asshole back, pronto', but I have other plans, hope he doesn't take it personally. It's a gorgeous day to go out on ones own terms, amirite? How many get that chance eh?
No more worries.
No more pain.

Implying fixed gear bikes are good for anything besides track riding? There's a reason they fell out of favor a century ago in favor of the freewheel.

OP asked for a commuting bike and hasn't even said where he lives. So unless he's a flatlander why suggest a SS. Suggesting a fixie off the bat is plan retarded.

And rereading your initial post, suggesting a fixie is a good introduction to bike mechanics is stupid. Just because fixies require less maintenance doesnt mean the parts they do have are any easier to work on. Modern bikes have derailleurs and brakes, and do require regular maintenance. The only parts shared in common is the chain and tires. Everything else that's common is much more advanced (cranks, hubs, headsets etc.)
>>
>>1262631
Sure a $400 geared bike won't be great, but a Kona Dew will be better than any fixie. Personally if I was going to spend $400 on a bike I would buy used.

>Implying fixed gear bikes are good for anything besides track riding?
To be fair, if you live in NYC, are gay, and are into hipsters, they're a fairly good way of meeting a boyfriend.
