There's a 2009 Bianchi Brava for sale on CL in my area. They're asking $400 for it, though bluebook (http://www.bicyclebluebook.com/searchlistingdetail.aspx?id=17816) claims its only work ~$300 on the high end.
The seller will throw in a travel pump and Cateye computer if the buyer wants it...worth?
>>972189 I did look into this since I buy stuff from the UK.
But only dropped 10%. That's barely a sale. I mean that's huge if all your holdings are in GBP, but it's only so-so in terms of sale pricing. And prices might spike since the yen spiked a bit, meaning it will cost more for UK to restock as their currency is worth less, and they have to pay higher prices because the yen is worth more as well.
Ok niggers, I just started riding my vitnage ultegra/shimano600 road bike.
what can I say Im in love, however the 40cm (deepdrop/traditional curve or whatever its called - its the standard on old steel race bikes) drop bar is very uncomfrtable on the hoods.
its not the reach, but the bend - even when Im on the drops I feel like my fingers are crushing each other and the hoods seem too low, what can you recommend it to have a better feel on both hoood and drops?
Hello everyone, because I am a moron I am somewhat reluctantly contemplating buying a name-brand used carbon fiber road bike from eBay: I have enough money to buy a fairly upscale road bike (though not enough to buy one brand new, and Craigslist has proven fruitless for my area), however the dangers present with buying a used carbon fiber bike without a prior in-person inspection (and relying solely on images and the vendor's word) presents obvious and glaring problems.

I saw the /sons of Neptune/ thread lately and found it quite inspiring, even though I haven't been much into boats and sailing before. So I'm a total beginner atm. Probably going to make more money than average in the next ten years and not planning on a family life any time soon so I though I might as well keep on traveling and get a sailboat to sail it around the world after saving a bit of money.
How much money do you think a good boat for that might cost?
What licenses might be needed? I heard just sailing doesn't require a license, but the radio... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

This is REALLY hard to answer, there are a number of questions you will have to ask yourself and factor in. What are your demands, for example, on things like speed, comfort, size and so on.
Will you be sailing alone or bringing a crew? If you're bringing a crew you'll need to pay more initially for a bigger boat, but you'll probably be able to find people willing to split... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Well regarding comfort and size I'm not too picky. I went from hiking to bike travelling and now this is my next plan, I think I can get along with a relatively small boat. I'd like to travel long distances (e.g. the whole world) so it should still be able to do cross an ocean from time to time. Also I'd like to travel alone with the option of taking someone else with me from time to time so it would need to easy enough to handle for one person alone.
Hopping from port to port is less my intention than to ge to places away from civilisationsand spending... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm a multihull kinda guy, but with that said I'll share some of my experience/information with you. Take it with a pinch of salt, these are my opinions and experiences, and the "facts" that I've been able to source from various online forums, fellow boat owners and crewmen.
It doesn't really matter how big the boat is, if it's set up correctly then it can be single-handed. Conversely, a 30-footer can be impossible to single-hand if the right equipment isn't on board. I'm talking about stuff like bow thrusters, self-tacking jibs, self-tailing winches, autopilots, halyards and reef lines being lead into the cockpit and so on. So the trick is to find a boat within your price-range that has all of these things, or can be equipped with all of these things after you purchase it.
With that said I will give you a few pointers to boats that continuously pop up in these discussions, and I'll tell you my personal opinion of them.
For starters I'd want a boat above 30 feet for crossing oceans and living aboard. Not only will it be faster and more comfortable, but safer as well. I know there are several Island Packet boats that are held in high regard among "live-aboarders", both solo and couples. From what I can gather (I have no personal experience with these as they don't appeal to me), they are well-built boats with great sea-keeping abilities.
I've been looking for an alternate source of exercise and I liked riding my mountain bike as a kid through the woods until some shit stick stole it. Anyways, I've been looking into getting into mountain biking. I know it's expensive but so are a lot of things, I can work on it over time. Anyone have any advise or experience with mountain biking and what some suggestions on bikes/gear would be?
I'm not sure if it makes a difference for the bike itself but I'm 6'4 240lb.
