Why do all modern planes have to be so expensive, refined and fast, that its practically impossible for the ordinary layman to get hold of one.

The old ww1 fighter planes where crude, simple, slow, cheap compared to modern aircraft, and that's what made them fun.

They were how aircraft where supposed to be.

You should start a company that builds cheap ww1 replicas.
There's always the Piper Cub...or ultralights
Im glad to finally hear someone say this. The reason that airplanes are made to be fast is that people who buy planes only look at the planes speed and range. The result is that planes are designed with high speed air foils and high wing loadings with small engines so that they have high stall speeds and will stall easily if not flown properly. This is in contrast to WW1 bi-planes which can be flown very slowly at high AoA without danger of stalling. Yes its possible to design planes that are very safe to fly, but no...

Does anyone else here use Uber? First time using uber today. Entered in the addresses right but the starting address changed after I finalized request address. Figure it is a display issue and he got my original address so I sat my phone down and waited. After the estimated wait time I looked at my phone, nope he was parked a block over. I panicked and cancelled. After he drove all that way. Feelsguiltyman

uber only pays about $8 a hour after you subtract mileage.

the only way to get it higher is to get a lot of short trips in 1.5x pay area.

/n/ is for bikes, boats, trains, and airplanes. Most likely the only time anyone here uses Uber is getting home from the bar after a night of unusually heavy drinking.

>I panicked

Do you have some kind of disability that makes it difficult to walk a block?
>uber only pays about $8 a hour after you subtract mileage.
Uber drivers also aren't licensed or insured as taxis.

My bike's front wheel was stolen. Can anyone help me find a fitting rim? I have no idea if any rim will fit, because the tires are very thin.
My bike is a 28" Fuji Declaration (pic related). Already tried searching for the rim's brand, but didn't find anything useful. On the tire it says "28-622", if that helps.
Would be awesome if anyone could help. Thanks.

Go to a shop, since you have no idea what you're doing.
the wheel size you're looking for is called 700c. almost any wheel off craigslist will work as long as its 700c

>ass pockets

what the actual fuck ? i mean do people even use those things ? and it's not like you can use them when you're on the bike anyway, it just add seams under your butt.
If you're not a hambeast, your ass doesn't touch the seat where the pockets are, broseph.

Even so, maybe I wanna pop my smart phone off my handlebars and pop it in my pocket while I go do something real quick.
These shorts are made for two people
1) Faggot who's too concerned about what other people think to wear spandex
2) People who ride more than a 'casual' distance, but still need to do shit occasionally, like commuters

If you're the second, the ass pockets will come in handy

Hi, im newb to cycling (i previously rode some bmx) and i want to begin in to this sport riding roads and some medium/light forest paths.
I'm rather low on budget but i got this post-rental bike for free.
It's some taiwan frame, cheapest components. It has bent rear wheel, the wheel itself has quite some play unless i squeeze it so that it rotates very very poorly.
fork bearings have some play too. Front brakes work good, rear brakes would work too if not for the bent wheel.
Alll seat, pedals and handle bars suck for me. Gearing works but its really...

There's a lot of questions to answer here, I'm sure they'll be covered, but here are my thoughts:

1. I like the frame. You can do a lot with it. font/rear racks, fenders. It has mounts for all of these. If anything, keep the frame around in case you become bike obsessed later on.

2. A rear wheel for this bike can be had for about $75 new, probably less used. But you'll need special tools to transfer the rear cassette onto the new wheel, and there is a risk of buying the wrong one. A used bike shop might be the best place to go and get one. Or, way better, a bike co-op. They'll probably have a wheel for you, and teach you how to replace it.

3. The loose headset bearings (the fork) concern me. The headset can be easily tightened with an adjustable wrench. There might be damage to the headset bearings by now. Try tightening it (enough to remove play but not so tight the bars are hard to move).

4. You can switch the stem to make this bike more comfortable. A longer stem will set you back $15. You need a QUILL stem, probably around 100mm, with less rise. The clamp area must be 25.4 --- standard old MTB bar size. 26.0 is for road. Those require a shim to be safe.

5. Your fit issues may be due to your saddle position. Make it level to the ground and give it a try before messing with stem.

5(b). Try lowering the stem all the way. You can loosen it with the hex nut at the top of it (the one above the fork). This will push the handlebars out further from your body, because as you can see the stem sits at an angle. The lower it goes, the farther out the bars go

6. The bike looks like it's in okay condition. If it only needs a new wheel, personally, I'd try to save it. A bike co-op would help you will all of this, probably for $50 total.

7. Those breaks are tough to get working properly (cantilever). They are a tough thing to work with but a good learning experience if you want one.
Your bike sucks, doesn't fit you and you're looking at $100-150 in parts and a weekend to get it to working condition.
Buy a used bike for the same money in your size, and you'll have a much better ride.
Spend $300 on a used bike and bring a knowledgeable friend, and you'll enter an entirely different dimension of cycling fun.

>only has outdated Schwalbe preffesional bike tires

What a shit store
they'll charge you to install stuff that you buy elsewhere as opposed to freely (or cheaply) installing stuff that you buy from them. this is standard practice for an LBS. what you shouldn't do, however, is ask them for advice and then go and buy something elsewhere. sometimes they'll be understanding, like if it's from a brand they can't stock, but it's definitely bad manners and will make them less likely to help you out in the future.
