Can somebody explain to me why the fuck manufacturers put these quck release fuckers to every single part they can found? Can we help out our fellow thieves even more? Are people nowadays really that lazy and dump that they cant use any tools?
Its pain in the ass to lock everything together or mod your perfectly fine new bike just because of that.
Because it makes it quicker and easier to remove you wheels in the event of a flat or when transporting the bike. If you don't like it locking skewers are cheap and take just a few minutes to fit, and most people that like those already have a set from previous bikes and simply transfer them over when they get a new bike or wheels.
If you complain about that you probably also get pissed that bikes only come with shitty pedals (which definitely need replacing if you ride clipless) and that the fit needs to be adjusted by you or at a shop..
What does these two paragraphs mean? do they mean 'core' when they say turbojet? 20,000 lbs? im so confused.
AT NEARLY 13 feet in diameter, the GE9X is the largest jet engine ever built. It is wider than the fuselage of a Boeing 737. Or, as the publicists at General Electric put it, if Kobe sat on Shaq’s shoulders, the two of them could easily walk through it.
Like we said. It is a really big engine.
The 20,000-pound turbojet that GE is testing at its proving ground in Ohio draws air faster, at greater volume, and with superior efficiency... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>950096 >https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrust A decent modern turboFAN pusts out 80,000. the best 100k. why would there be and article about a 20,000 lb engine. also it says turboJET, which is only used where fuel economy is not an issue.

OP I don't know of any single resource that answers all of those questions, but one page I really like is the Disraeli Gears site, which is all about (mostly older) rear derailers. If you read through it from start to finish with all the commentary you'll have a very good start on understanding a lot of what separates a good RD from a bad one including tidbits on materials and manufacturing, and most of those principles apply to other components.
For other stuff, I don't know what else to recommend beyond google and reading everything you can find. There's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Where I am living, we have law to forbid adults to ride bicycles on sidewalk, but you are allowed to use mobile phone, for example to do the navigation or entertainment. For some reason ignorant police thinks that I should be bored while riding to work, even though it is two hours away! It happened twice now that the police stopped me for watching videos on my tablet. I don't even hit people and I am very careful!
