it really just depends on your riding conditions. i mean 1700km is a lot, but if it's not all dry and squeaking then that's cool.

it's time to get the hint, neckbeards here shill used bikes but used bike sellers are shady or clueless most of the time, used bike components are even worse, you should only buy used anything if you have low standards or if you know what you're doing so that you can tell if it's a good deal or not, if you bought it on ebay or something like that you could try to dispute the transaction

Ahoy good anons of /n/!

Genuinely curious as to y'alls opinion on whether to go tubed or tubeless? I am mainly riding in urban and semi-rural roads and debris is definitely present and has caused more than one puncture before.

Any downsides to tubeless tyres, such as worse grip or excessive added weight?

Thanks in advance!

The entire concept DESU. A puncture/tear that kills a tubeless tyre is going to kill a tube tyre. So your entire point is well pointless.

yes you shouldn't be on your phone while driving but in stationary traffic is hardly the worst offence.

Is the Ford Bronco made completely pointless by the fact that they all have the ecoboost engine and 10 speed transmissions on the automatics?

I have a friend who knows a fair amount about cars but I know he’s got a pretty strong bias. He tells me the ecoboosts and the 10 speed transmissions are essentially the worst ever made. As far as he’s concerned the ecoboost is LITERALLY HITLER dumpster fire irredeemable trash and as long as the Broncos have them then they wouldn’t be a good buy even if they were $10,000.

Is his hate for Ford and more specifically the ecoboost/10 speed warranted? Exaggerated?

The new Broncos are everything I want out of an off road toy. 35” tires from the factory, doors and tops that are super easy to remove, triple locking differentials, sway bar disconnect, sharp turn assist, wash out floorboards, comes already wired for accessories like lightbars and amber lights, terrain selection, all the numbers on things like approach angle and ground clearance and wheelbase are great and that’s without a lift, it checks almost all my boxes except having a solid front axle.

So.. are the ecoboost engines and 10 speed transmissions really so bad that it makes it pointless for me to look at the bronco at all, even though it’s basically my dream off roader? I want to love the bronco but reliability is very important to me.

And please don’t suggest something like a 4Runner, you can’t take the doors off a 4Runner, you can’t flush out the floorboards of a 4Runner, you can’t lock the diffs on a 4Runner, honestly the bronco and the rubicon are the only 4x4’s I know of that are seriously built with off road as the first priority and offer the full suite of off road features while also still keeping a small, fun form factor instead of being a pretty fucking big SUV.

With a bachelors and a cpl can I just walk in and get hired?
>>
>>1671966
You can try to do that with an officer recruiter, but good luck.

>>1671959
An addendum, you can get selected as a pilot without a unit in the reserve (unsponsored) then have to rush units during or after UPT. Its not common, but possible, this is called a palace chase.
>>
>>1671966
Yes, though it's a bit more complicated than just 'walking in'. You have to wait until a squadron is actively hiring, which is typically once or twice a year depending on the squadron. You have to get in contact with them and schedule a visit, and also put together an application packet which is different for every squadron.

But as far as qualifications go, you're all set. A commercial pilots license is great and better than what most have.

Damn, that's so weird that you apply to the specific squadron, and then you can fly with them your whole career. National Guard and Reserve sound like awesome programs.

I mean it is though, it’s why white people are bigger and taller than other races.
