honestly i'm fine with them being put on. if youre too retarded to take it off you're probably too retarded to not send your derailleur into the spokes
even if limits are set, some unga bunga will inevitably bend the hanger enough to where the once properly set limit will still send it into the spokes.
derailleur pivots wear out
the combined effect can invalidate limit screws when you hit a bump
road freds and bikeshop gimps can only work with brand new parts and the proper tools
taking off the dork disc increases the bikes resale value by so much

people just assume dork disc means walmat bike

I want to live on the ocean. Besides buying a boat, what other things should I do and read to help me achieve this goal?

What's your experience sea faring? Are you single? Where are you located where do you want to go? I spent 8 years living onboard and crossed the Atlantic 6 times. Have you crossed before? What size boat? If you are smart cost aren't as extreme as everyone says if you are smart and handy. Also what do you do for employment?

Also know and understand the weather and how it works. It's the one things that can truly fuck you. NOAA has pilot charts for the oceans and carribbean sea for free but their pretty old. A new set varies in pricing based on how detailed they are.

I bought a 1985 Grady White trophy pro to fix up and get back on the water. Should I post my progress here for you guys?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Hell yeah man, keep us posted. Sounds way more badass than the endless gay cycling threads.
Definitely. Grady Whites are nice boats. What's the story? How much did you buy it for? Condition? Is that a smudge on the stbd bow or damage?
>My own life is terrible so I must shit on the life of others to compensate.
Cue up how your life isn't shit, that I suck, OP sucks, we all know it's coming and we'll ignore it.
Shine that boat up and you'll snag a fishing wife with a fat ass, anon. We're all gonna make it.
Please update us OP. ignore the retards
yes post progress OP
and please prove the old saying wrong.

and please for the love of god tell is it has a motor and all the parts are not in pieces

Anyone else watching "The Architecture the Railways Built"? It's not too shabby, but it has given me a craving for more shows/documentaries on railroads. What's /n/ recommend?

>"What didn't they do right?"
when it opened you could, in theory, step off the Metro at Gateshead (or any other designated interchange station) and jump straight onto a bus that would be waiting, because it would all be one big interlinked system. then the Tories decided no, local authorities cant run their own buses, thats communism!!, the solution being to gift-wrap the entire bus thing and hand it over to their mates in Stagecoach

that and its a public transport concern that is outside of the M25 so of course it receives 0 subsidy to run their 40-year-old rolling stock
Full Steam Ahead is basically the ultimate documentary series on the early history of British railways.

The Train Now Departing is also a good one. It's pretty much a time capsule on the state of preservation in the 80s.

Was going to suggest the train now departing but you bear me to it.

Railway roundabout is pretty good, as are chris eden greens videos. I can't remember now to spell his name, but it's something like ruraidh mcveigh. He has some pretty in depth videos about trains and stuff.
Watched the first episode of this, the guy's a bit awkward at times but talks about some interesting things. Will probably finish the rest when I've got time, thanks for posting the links

Lol, have fun having a stupid bitch control your life because you're too weak to say no.
I had a few friends in college who were into riding bikes. One of them was a hardcore rider who did 1000 miles in a week during the summer and the other was a chunky dude who was still insanely fast. I got them from going on group rides the school organized.

At what point did you realize that "gravel bikes" are just what replaced front suspension hybrids when male inadequacy complex concluded that a front suspension hybrid is unacceptable?

Think about it. You can't refute this.

32-40 ish mm 650Bs will fit on a 26er without altering the geometry, the diameters are similar but you may need to check brake adjustment, should be pretty easy with v-brakes but I wouldn't know about cantis (for road pull comatibility)
on smooth surfaces there is not much practical difference between 1.5 and 2.1 inch tires
where 2 inch tires really starts to pay off is in course gravel bigger than Size #57 gravel and in the wet
and there is a little bit of flotation on sand but not really enough for deep sand like a fat bike

26 is kind of bad for a smooth ride as the chain stays and spokes are shorter
and many of the later 1990s MTB were overbuilt in their tube dimensions

that said 26 24 and 20 inch wheels are much better for bearing weight and lateral load
for any given hub width the wider angle of the spokes provides more strength
very important for tandems and cargo bikes

and lastly if your climbing hills the smaller wheels can help with lower gear ratios
27 and 28 inch wheels are a bit more suited to higher speed and smoother riding so each has their place
>I'll have you know I've been to numerous gravel rides
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Bike Rides, and I've been involved in numerous secret gravel rides, and I have over 300 confirmed steep hills. I am trained in gorilla gravel and I'm the top descender in the entire US Strava segments. You are nothing to me but just another Fred. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of roadies across the USA and your bike is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can pass you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just on my 35mm tires. Not only am I extensively trained in going downhill on loose gravel, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the 32 - 37mm tires and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.
There is no fucking difference between adventure and gravel bikes you homo faggot
