should cyclists be licensed and bicycles be registered?

Pros
>license and registration on bicycles would reduce theft because bicycles would be police traceable.
>money gathered from license and registration of bikes could be put towards infrastructure
>traffic laws are more enforceable

Cons
>potential barrier to ridership

also this. I really hope the government taxes absolutely everything so even the most retarded people like OP will realize that the government won't fix their problems just because they tax you.

I've never heard a cohesive argument in favour of taxing/regulating cycles that isn't immediately torn apart by basic scrutiny. But I've only heard this argument from raging r*ght-wing hot take media types. So there might exist a good argument for it somewhere.

Wesley Wills was a man with a pure soul who made pure unadulterated music. he suffered from schizophrenia and made music in oder to deal with the demons in his head. You should be thankful that I shared that video with you. If you didn't at least find it funny, that's sad. I'm going to presume that you are too close-minded to take this in, but that's ok.

Multihulls look cool and have certain other benefits but ultimately they're for caribbean vacationers who sit at anchor more than they move because a moving multihull is a bobbing and slapping multihull. The steadily leaning and wavecutting nature of monohulls is just more comfortable underway.

Thanks anon. I did bowlines but I’ll look into the fancy option

Over the past few years, the Bay Area has grown into one of the most valuable real estate areas in the world due to Silicon Valley and other booming businesses. More people keep moving in and the mountainous area keeps expanding to meet housing demands. It seems that the transportation infrastructure is not keeping up and traffic is getting worse and worse every year. How do we solve this?

i have a wtb like yours on one of my bikes. i thought it was an ass hatchet until i adjusted it correctly. for me, the sweet spot ended up being slightly lower, further back, and tilted nose up a touch more than what i was used to with similar saddles. i have brooks saddles on 4 of my other bikes - they take a little while to break in, but are the most comfortable.

>>1598452
I can safely say Brooks is a meme AND are fucking comfiest things ever.
Had problems with taint pain, penis numbness (scariest thing ever) and asshurt on normal and gel padded saddles (sports saddles, not the comfort ultrapadded ones)
Then I got a Brooks Flyer for my dad and he loves it to bits, tried it out and it was the most comfort I ever felt on a bike. Got myself a B17 Imperial and couldn't be happier, feels awesome and looks great as well.
Don't forget to treat it right.

Welcome to the /gag/ - /gag/ is dedicated to all the pilots and pilot applicants out there, and although the name suggests otherwise, airline, military, and charter discussion is welcome.
Keep it on topic, keep the shit throwing to a minimum, no nudes. Bikefags not allowed :^)

Cash, saved up about $15k before and worked 20 hours a week all throughout flight training. Took me 4 years and 220 hours of training to get to commercial w/ instrument and single+multi engine and my CFI. Also went to university full time. Plus the weather gets shitty here in Jan/Feb so its hard to get up those months. If you have more money saved up and can just focus on flying you can knock it out much quicker than that.

>why hawg?
I've been obsessed with the hog for a long time, in fact it was my main motivation for becoming a pilot. More than anything I love the close air support mission. Fighter jets don't do anything for me, but flying low to the ground, providing close firepower to soldiers in need is what appeals to me more than anything else. the A-10 is such a unique plane with a unique mission, i love it.

>slow
i dont care about going fast

whether it's planes or cars or anything else, i like the ones that look different

Anyone using the jtek shiftmate? Why is it so abhorrently expensive for what it is, are there any aftermarket options?

For the uninformed, this pulley system changes the cable pull ratio to allow cross-compatibility between shifters, derailleurs, and cassettes. This thread is also aimed at those who run different components and have yet to resolve their shifting woes.

>I should get everything at-cost
I agree! Let's make our own knockoff J-Tek shiftmates and stick it to the man!
>>
>>1597729
i mean, what kind of man would mishmash their drivetrain? usually someone who got a good deal on a part here and there and ended with a backlot of incompatible parts
i bet they got bribed by the big manufacturers, because if you could have campy's beautiful human interfaces but use dirty old sham&sram that just works on the bike end of things, they'd lose so much money that they already have

I had to use a Shimano front pull mech with Sram shifters, I changed its geometry with a file, now it works flawlessly.

>>1597492
>Oh look it's 'cope' hardware!
Just buy the correct shifters and shit and stop fucking around.
