The only thing that offers anything close to the freedom of a bicycle is a frequent 24/7 transit route.

Not 20, not on a nice bike.

He's not right, nothing you said applies to me.
I get to work 7 or so miles from my house in 30 minutes and barely exert myself, although I do have a lot of practice.
Mental exertion from steering and braking? are you fucking retarded or a trainfag because forms of transportation that don't involve steering, braking, and avoiding pedestrians are pretty rare in most cases and inconvenient in all.
If your taint hurts from riding a bike just get a better seat you neanderthal.
Sore wrists and back pain from potholes aren't a problem if you know how to properly ride a bike and have a bike with a suspension.
Before you even say it, because I know you're dumb enough to, bikes with suspensions often cost the same as their gay ass road bike counterparts and the weight difference is ~2lb.
Deodorant/antiperspirants exist and if you're not an overweight out of shape NEET absolute waste of oxygen or live out in the country where the closest store is 15 miles away you won't be noticeably sweaty or stinky when you arrive.
Why does the pole have to be a certain size? I fucking locked my bike to an unused door the other day, fuckhead.
If you have a properly secure lock, or multiple thick chained kryptonite locks like I use your bike is pretty much guaranteed to be safe, and I live in new york fucking city.

you should kill yourself.

*spends 5 minutes unlocking bike*
*walks bike with coworkers and keeps hitting them with the handlebars*
S-sorry

*spend another 10 minutes trying to find the right size pole to lock up on*
Ok I’m done

If your pay is 40k eur/year as a 1st engineer you absolutely should try to get a job in norway. In the offshore fleet, which is large in norway, there is a lot of faroe (danish) and swedish sailors. The only requirement is that you speak something that will be understood by norwegians.

Redpill me on Brakeshifters.
I have pic rel and it works pretty good for me, but downtube shifting bothers me sometimes, especially when I want to shift both the rear and the front derailleur. What are the pros and cons of the brake lever style shifting method?

i have only ridden brake shifters, tubeless, and dick brakes. i want to give all alternatives a go. i think tubeless still seems better but i like that rim brakes don't require overbuilt forks and i think downtube shifters would be a lot of fun. plus friction shifting is just cool!

cyclists.

can you navigate without gps where you are? my city has the easiest block numbering system. each 100 increase is a new block; odds one side even other. all street signs have the block #. mainly avenues going N/S.
how do I explain stuff like this to pajeets and zoomers. they're glued to their phone when they wayfind. it's infuriating.

The city of Minneapolis has an interesting naming system. For the most part, in south Minneapolis, every 8 numbers Streets is a further mile from downtown. Cross streets are either in alphabetical order or are Avenues

I was mostly interested in the cranks and Mavic rims to go with xt hubs I have. Also, was considering selling the indy forks on ebay. I could put on some rigid forks and replace the rest with other stuff I have.

you can get decent 26" rims new or NOS for fairly cheap

I bought the bike for less than I can get one used mavic ceramic rim on ebay, and both rims only have minor cosmetic flaws with little break pad wear. If I had the money to and time I might look for NOS but it's just not practical for me and new rims in this price range would be sub par.

Rivendells are the most epic rip off. Imagine selling a bike made of worse steel and equipped with lower quality components than a late 80's early 90's 26er score at 5 times the price of the vintage 26er. Its crazy cause these hipsters and liberals eat em up.

In your honest opinion, what's the dumbest decision a pilot/crew made that caused a deadly crash?

I feel it'd be more interesting to talk about the choices and decisions made, rather than doing the 'point and laugh' thing.

For example: the Magic Roundabout in Swindon, which connects four major traffic arteries and a suburban residential street, in a single free-flowing road junction. One of those experimental things that somehow clung on and became permanent, rather than being rebuilt into a single big roundabout.
