Nothing’s subsidized more than roads, highways, and oil. Sorry.

Nothing wrong with roads being tolled to cover their massive cost.

What do your public buses and people who use them look like where you live?

>The colleges and universities here are over 60% international students now.
To be fair to this point, that's because International Students are where the money is. University/College is partially subsidized for Canadians while Internationals receive no help. So of course Colleges and Universities will seek out International students since they pay full price. I mean a Canadian may pay lets say 4K a year, an international student will likely pat 10K for the same course. Since Colleges and Universities are in the business of making money they seek out the highest payers.


This is also why the idea of cutting subsidies to colleges and universities isn't a good idea since it will just cause them to replace domestics student spots with international ones.

As for being fun to ride, you've obviously never ridden a proper mtb down a mountain path if you think a road bike on a few pieces of rock is fun.

There is nothing wrong with the bikes per say, it's the marketing idiots that make things up to suck more money out of naive people who don't understand that if you put bigger tyres on just a road bike, you can go off road with it more than you could before.
>>
>>1335131
They also have higher BBs, generally a fuckton of braze-ons, and more tire clearance, yet more fun than true touring bikes.

I agree with you that the marketing is mostly nonsense, but there are meme bikes of every category for people with the money to drop.

Why people like you get all butthurt about people with plenty of money driving the bike industry's technology forwards is a mystery to me.

What brake pads are you using? Also what distributor did you buy from? I've got some Farsports and have been using the pads that came with the wheels but am thinking of buying some Swissstop black princes.

>>1335087
I've been using Campy red pads with my old wheels. Got some black princes to try out with the new ones. I haven't tried them yet but my mates like them.

Light Bicycle included some Reynolds cryoblue copies with the wheels, gonna test them out in my TT bike since it has Shimano type brake pads.

My old wheels were farsports and the new ones being built are Light Bicycle. The finish quality is much better on the LB rims compared to the farsports, but there's also 4 years between their purchase.

Just wanna read some thoughts about Airbus vs. Boeing aka Airplane war...

It could even stop at LaGuardia, which would be amazing since there's no AirTrain there. It could even stop at Rikers Island, since the jail is gonna be replaced by high-end real estate. It serves a huge chunk of Brooklyn that has no nearby trains. It give the Bronx much better access to both airports. This needs to happen, but would never ever ever.
