/n/ could you please spec me a new modern group set to replace the one in pic related.

Bonus points for replacement front mech and shifter only. I look at all these Deore XT and modern Alvio stuff but most of it is for 9-10 cassetes while Dad's bike is 8. Don't know if its compatible and am confused.

TLDR: Front mech is fucked on old beater bike and need a replacement. Send help.

You're fine, /n/ is the place for this stuff.

If you want to order a replacement front derailer online, get a Shimano FD-M310, but know that when you figure in shipping it'll probably be cheaper/same price to go to a local bike shop (take your bike along), and if they've got an old derailer laying around then it might be a lot cheaper than ordering online.

we had 2 malimute (sled breed) mix dogs when I was younger.
My dad had an old coaster brake cruiser bike and would use that to keep the dogs from going to fast while he held their leases with one hand and handle bars with the other.

How much of your flight is IFR?
16 replies and 6 images submitted. Click here to view.
I've had my instrument rating for like a year, and I've had 0 IFR flights outside of training. The IFR conditions are pretty scarce, considering I live in Arizona. Either it's nice and sunny or a monsoonal thunderstorm. Or the occasional icing conditions in winter. It's only helpful if I'm flying to some place in Southern California where dodging class bravos and deltas left and right is annoying.
I haven't even started IFR training, yet. PPL checkrides are expensive.

Thanks for the info f@m, it would be cool to see this scene recreated, but it sounds like you're more obsessed with the railroad (or with me) than me at this point if you're finding this kind of info.

Have you become a secret fan?
I didn't call him autistic, nor do I stalk him.

I know he's here, and found something that would be of interest to him.

I actually found the info on another not-really-specifically-railroad-related website.

Just figured it would pique your interest :')

How fucking based is this diesel

Build in the fucking 60's and it's still being used more than diesels built in 70's 80's and sometimes 90's

barely even see 56's anymore meanwhile these fuckers are everywhere, and being used for all kinds of haulage

So I am looking to get back into biking and was wondering if anyone could help me out. I used to bmx in my teen years and got pretty good. I had a Diamondback with a lot of custom parts. It got stolen so I quit at age 17.

I'm 22 now and really want to get back into that world, partly to lose some weight but mostly just to get me out of my apartment. There are some amazing street places within a minute ride from my place.

The last time I rode was almost 6 years ago. I hear a lot has changed with modern bmx bikes. My question is- what is a good intermediate...

I guess skateboard general?

Considering getting a skateboard to help me get around for my job.

While I would love to get a bike, it does not fit well for Car pools/Buses, So ya.

Basically is building my own from parts best?

How much does a decent skate board cost, do I need to spend more than 50 bucks for something decent? only ever bought the cheapest off the shelf stuff.

I only need it for riding, probably going to get something compact so it can fit into my bag/on my bag

Do they make security trucks with a loop for locking it up...

There's a skateboarding thread there. You'll probably find better help there but I can answer.

>is building my own from parts best?
Probably not unless you know what you want.

>decent board cost?
You can get a Churchill Penny Killer for $75.
Check the rest of the boards on that page, pick what length/shape you like.

>Do they make security trucks with a loop for locking it up to something?
No. If you're going for a small board, it'll be easy to keep it close by and keep an eye on it.

Have you ever ridden before? What distances do you plan on riding? The penny killer is 23" so it's pretty short, the cruisers are 28" which would be more stable at speed.

2 MB,
Does a double-decker bus have any advantages over a standard articulated bus? I know a few years back London introduced artics into the fleet and of course the people of London made it clear they vastly preferred the double deckers. Is there any situation in North America where a double decker would be the preferred option over an artic?

We have them here in NYC for the tourism trade and that's about all they are practical for. In the NYC metro area it would be a hassle with all of the tunnels, low bridges, and height restricted routs. I can't comment on other US municipal transportation systems as I lack knowledge and experience.
