How is the thickness of my clamp diameter going to affect the comfort if the rest of the bar is the standard 22.2mm? Clamp diameter has nothing to do with comfort. As for looking better, that's subjective. You may not like it, but everyone on my Instagram does anon ;)

>Kind of ironic though that you are this concerned about the aesthetics of bikes and still complain about "instagram bikes"

functionality crates a certain look - your pic rel has retarded 31.8 low rise bars (since most 31.8 are low rise), look at the drop on it, what is use of that bike? It certainly wont win any races nor does it do singletrack with those tires. so why the seat to bar drop? so make it more upright, do that and 22.0/25.4 will follow, you wont need an ahead adapter that ridiculously short stem is not needed as well (longer stems provide more comfort on rigids) + those pedals are shite.

pic rel is however a far more logical bike, a bike that can fit the Gram but is also true to itself.

dude...

how wide are those bars? They dont look that wide.
>>
>>1691086
785mm. Again, how is my clamp diameter going to affect the comfort? The rise is where I want it, and so is the width. So how is the clamp diameter making an impact on the comfort of my ride?

Another one bites the dust. I wonder how long until car companies just stop making new ICE models. They’ll probably keep the old platform for regions where ICE is allowed but it won’t be worth doing any R&D on them.

just look at how software requirements have changed over the years
software gets slower and slower each year - it was always just covered up by massive leaps in hardware performance until now
software bloat is at insane levels
modern software requires 1000x the hardware specs to do the exact same shit people were doing on computers 20 years ago

compared to a computer from 1995, modern computers are insane super computers. literally twice as powerful as the most powerful, million dollar, whole room super computers from 1995.
but yet our modern computers take LONGER to open modern software than the equivalent software would take on a 1995 home computer.

AI is complete meme tech. 10+ years of "huge strides" but yet no actual application found outside of gimmicks.
Machine learning and decision trees are the only thing near to AI with practical uses.
The greatest minds of our generation are being completely wasted on this meme tech. Thanks to 10 years of painstaking research I can now point my phone at a ginger cat and my phone tells me it's a ginger cat! WAAAOOOOWW I fricking love technology!!!

China's HSR kills fewer people per year than Amtrak does.
Its accident (let alone fatality) rate per passenger, per km traveled, per passenger-kilometre, per journey, etc. is one of the best in the world.
Such is why the only thing anyone can ever find to hold against it was Wenzhou 2011, which Chinese media extensively reported on.

When the US stops being a superpower, it will experience an economic collapse similar to the UK and USSR when they stopped being superpowers. But the US has far less social cohesion than either of those countries did. It won't be a comfy time at all.

I mean seriously. Just take a look at this, the houses are so crammed in together with such little land that they lose all benefit of being detached. The people who live in them are atomised beyond belief, don't know who their neighbors are, and basically use them as a dormitory for commuting to a pointless make-work job in the the city center. Owning a car is basically compulsory too because the nearest store is 3 miles away. Likewise kids have to be driven to school, usually in gas-guzzling SUVs because the parents think it's safer.
All of this is extremely inefficient in my book. All of these people could fit into one block in a mid-rise, mixed use area with small businesses on the ground floor where you can socialize and buy food etc. The kids could walk to school. Your commute could be 200 meters.
Just think about how good things could be - europe can do it right, why not america?

More commie transportation lies.
In 2019 Italy had 660 cars per capita (more than any other EU country), average italian traveled 14000 km, 11250 km of that using cars. Not surprising Italy has lowest commuting time in EU. Eat this Dutch cucks!

Suburbanization preceded the peak of white flight and began in the immediate post-war years, and American already had a majority suburban population by 1970.

Cycling is late stage 3 or early stage 4 in many places.

In some areas, it may have even progressed to stage 5.

What's the best way to reverse this? I for one have been pestering local elected officials to block the construction of new bike lanes.

Anyway i thought it was cool and as long as it's floaty and the keel is long enough it's seaworthiness shouldn't be a problem I guess. Ever seen something like it? Also post cool sailboats
