I'm not saying he was right about everything but he should be stickied. Like /g/ has the bird sex guy.Why isn't there a sticky and why isn't it sheldon brown? The fact is this is now the bikes board. All other transportation exists to make cycling more fun and more convenient. It's time we faced the truth, /n/.
They should make pic related the sticky, as it shows the essence of /n/:>bicycles being put into place by superior Japanese train, folded 10'000 times
Stop turning everything into a competition.
>>1502372Only noticed the "no cage" icon after posting.
Why the fuck do you want a sticky?>O-o-other boards have oneTHE OTHER BOARDS ARE FULL OF FAGS
>not based Jobst Brandt
>>1502370>The fact is this is now the bikes board.fake news sadall bikers are bigots
>tfw interested in both cycling and locomotives
>>1502385I enjoy cycling and believe the US needs a train revolution, but if you honestly think /n/ isn't full of fags you haven't been paying attention.
>>1502370>some dead weirdo who made a website full of outdated information that you'd only use if you were trying to fix up something you excavated from your grandparents' backyardIf anyone needs a sticky it's the park tools moustache guy.
>>1502458>tfw taking bike onto trains on a regular basis
>>1502525>outdated information bad>current information goodWhat do you think a sticky is?
>>1503065A useless waste of space
>>1502370I don't think he's really relevant in today's world of DIY riders. He's a DIY rider from ages past. I guess he makes slow people fee better about being slow.
>>1503065An opportunity for newfriends to learn how to hide threads.
>>1502372based drop on that nerd's bike in the background
>>1503077he's relevant for working on classic bikesyou can better tutorials for doing basic tasks but the sheer collated information on his site about various old standards and sizes is unparalleled and deeply helpful. I also think his (and other's like him, brandt, beterson, heine)'s iconoclast hot takes on how to ride and cycling in general are still interesting.You are kind of right about him being outdated though, but that is explicitly part of the charm. The history of cycling.
>>1503077any time you're dealing with steel bikes he's extremely useful
>>1502370this dude and his son were communists. Great bike mechanic though.
>>1503805you say that like it's a bad thing
>>1503809you say that like it isn't
>>1503813/n/ is a commu/n/ist board
There should NOT be a separate sticky for Sheldon.A link to his site should be in the opening post for "bike question general"/bqg threads.... oh wait, it already is.
>>1503765can I get stickers of this somewhere?
>>1503805capitalism must be destroyed
>>1507763like all Posse stickers it is a DIY thing. Print them up at the print shop and confuse people in your town.
>>1503805How could they be commies they literally owned a bike shop. I thought they were boring Massachussetts bike hippies.
>>1513706Commies only want *other people's* money and businesses to be seized by the state.
>>1513709a shop owner pretty much makes you Petit Bourgois by definition
>>1503805Based.>>1513711There's nothing wrong with owning your own means of production.
>>1516902There's nothing wrong indeed, but it certainly means you're not a communist
>>1516905>yet you participate in society. curious!You can be a socialist and still own your own means of production, and socialism is the transitional step between capitalism and communism.
>>1506182Go choke on a boot, totalitarian faggot
>>1516926But it's not communism, stop grasping
>>1516964>a person who supports or believes in the principles of communism.How can you expect someone to live under communism if communism doesn't exist? The only communists that can exist in a capitalist society are people who necessarily participate in capitalist society, yet advocate for communism.
>>1516966Not really, you can live a communist way of life within a communist society, within a capitalist nationSaying you're a communist doesn't make you one, you have to act like one too
Good thread fellow assborgs
>>1502370>Neckbeard>Extremely insistent on wording / pronouncing things a less common way ("derailer", "GNU/Linux")>Uses an old machine instead of the latest high tech (fixed gear MTB, Thinkpad)>Skeptical / hostile to the industry they are associated with>Still an expert in their fieldThey're a lot alike but Sheldon was a lot more agreeable in general, he doesn't have the autistic or antisocial traits as much as Stallman.
>>1518700You have to understand Stallman as a messianic kind of figure. As the leader of the free software movement, he has to embody all of its ideals in himself or he ends up looking like a hypocrite and tarnishing the reputation of the FSF. And his principles are very good: either you control the software or the software controls you.Stallman's not using the latest tech reflects his character in two ways. Firstly how he doesn't thirst to consoom the latest tech product, and secondly how much he values his software freedom over convenience.Sheldon on the other hand just seemed like a cool guy who added useful information without being particularly dictatorial.
King of /n/ is actually BaconRider.
>>1519044Why does he type like that anyway?
>>1513706>middle school level educationowning the means of production =/= owning a shop where you sell things produced by others alongside your laborat best, like mentioned, he's petit bourgeois, which is not the same as a bourgeois/landlords, but even that's a stretch depending who you ask, as he doesn't actually produce the bicycles or goods himself.
>>1519107I see where you're coming from, but the logical conclusion to this reasoning is that the only reall producers of anything are miners.
>>1519112no, because there's usually private ownership of even mines. and then there's private ownership of the people who take raw resources and produce them into fine goods. Both of these groups are the same class, the elite/bourgeoisie. If I can't make any bikes at all, and have to buy them from a factory owner's factory, I am by no means in the same class as him, obviously excluding a major corporation that just outsources production, but even that's rare, even REI has their own bike line.A small shop owner who just orders bikes from companies and fixes them is still selling nothing more than goods from a privately owned producer, and his wage labor, simply without a boss to decide what his labor is worth for him.
>>1519117Okay, so are the big mining companies the only real people with the "means of production"?
>>1519120again raw resource extraction isn't the same as creating finished goods, so no they are not the "only ones".
>>1519112Miners are not producers, they just deliver the stuff from underground to be processed into other more useful things.The real producer is the stars and the universe.
>>1519127is assembling a bike creating a finished good?>>1519131haha, fair enough mr sagan.
>>1519141not unless you're buying the raw goods and milling the steel, welding, making the chain, etc. If you did this you wouldn't be a worker, you would be an artisan.
>>1519145what about car manufacturing-- is it creating a finished good?
>>1519145Artisans are workers.
>>1519147Yes, of course. >>1519149They are not. They are an essentially extinct or very diminished class that were phased out by workers. Luddites being an example of them.
>>1519149>>1519157Note: I'm not arguing in absolutes, but an artisan according to Marx was distinct from the worker, with the biggest distinction being the lack of need for specialized skills thanks to machines, which killed off artisans (who can really be classified as petty bourgeois) and the peasant class (as peasants left estates and working the land to cities to work in factories and produce goods for wages.)
>>1519157what about hot dogs? are they sandwiches?
>>1519164Depends on your opinion, but I don't consider them as such. The bun is usually a single piece of bread, and most sandwiches are closed between two.
>>1519164Hot dog are sandwiches. Hamburgers are sandwiches. Pizza is sandwitch. Pie is sandwich. Anything involving condiment on bread is sandwitch.Sandwitch is one of humankinds most widespread and prevalent achievments.
>>1519179I like proprietary better
>>1519179I don't believe open sandwiches are real, my friend, that's just a stack of unfinished sandwich.
>>1519177A hamburger is not a sandwich unless it's made of sliced bread. A sandwich assumes two SLICES of bread. End of discussion.
>>1522647what about a hamburger made out of a bun that you sliced in half, like most homemade ones?
>>1513706it's an ideology, not a real thing. you can believe in it without acting it out. same thing with autistic ancap retards.
>>1503868you should kill yourself.
>>1519069I suspect because he is using a flip phone
>>1523061socialism is good
>>1523062I didn't think Bacon could be more based but I was proven wrong again. How can someone be so based yet be so real?
>>1523062That or he’s an actual schizo
>>1523062>fliphones back in 2013Yeah, I can see that happening.
>>1502370is this guy /n/'s equivalent of rms?
>>1502370bump because this guy's website taught me how to do everything bike mechanic related
>>1530304Yes, but without the politics and self-importance
>>1530427sounds super lame and boring
>>1533759Welcome to /n/
>>1516972A perfectly reasonable argument would be that it's impossible to have a functioning communist mini society within a capitalistic framework of a non socialist nation. You wouldn't say Marx wasn't a communist because he paid rent to a private landlord and sold books for profit in the free market.
>>1530427>without the politicsthey are there in Isolationbut not shoehorned into every single topic
>>1533759the word you're looking for is 'nice'
Literally who? Anyway fuck cyclists. /n/ is a mass public transport board

>>1519069Steganography, Bacon is a retired glow
>>1519069iunno but I've seen him posting on /out/ before but he wasn't using his name or trip.I tried saying hi but he ignored it, but of course he mostly ignores people here, too.>>1566248there's probably files hidden in all the horse pics.
/n/ should reallt have Sheldon stickied. Maybe some train databse links or something too the foamers don't shit themselves. Also something telling people that cars and motorcycles belong on /o/

>>1502370With the glacial pace threads turn over around here this might as fucking well be a sticky now.
the only person who deserves a sticky on /n/ is skyking. everyone else can blow a goat
