I'm a messenger in Boston.

I often enter a state of roadlust while working where I become a complete and utter asshole on the street. Just today I came stupidly close to hitting a baby carriage. Wow I'm a jerk.

Got 2 aluminum track bikes made in Taiwan, a Nashbar Terra Alpha 5000 mtb, '85 Fuji League, and a '93 Bridgestone RB-1

It's wicked fun but I have a hard time relaxing. Adrenaline is one of the only things that I truly enjoy.

What bike would /n/ recommend for a 240 lb ish rider looking to commute daily around 8 km to work and then back home again?

Buy something with an actual warranty.
LHTs make for a good commuter. My 2005 frame has been suffering under my 115kg for years without complaint. For 16km a day though, you could really get away with many solutions.
Let us dispel this fiction, this poster knows exactly what he is doing. He is systematically fucking up new bikers by implying people unironically recommend Surly.

Surly is garbage.

Rigid 90's MTB with slicks, 8km is not terrible far and does not require a fancy bike to arrive

Also 26" wheels will work better for 240lb especially 36 spoke wheels

Question: how do you get a job working in a bike shop without previous experience working in a bike shop?

Like any other job anywhere : ask everywhere and you start small.
Buy yourself a few trash bikes, completely strip them and then build them again. Then after 1 week you can work in a bike shop.

If seems to me light aircraft are expensive as fuck, and haven't changed as much as cars have over the last 60 years.

If you were in charge of an air firm that built small aircraft like Cessnas and Pipers, what changes would you make to properly modernize the light aircraft and make it cost less than an arm and a leg?
21 replies and 7 images submitted. Click here to view.
Most of that money is tied up in liability insurance, actually. Back in the days of yore pilots of limited moral fiber would injure themselves and sue the aircraft makers. It became such a problem Cessna had to shut down its production for a while, they were hemorrhaging funds into liability suits so much

This anon is correct.
It's become so bad that if you want a cutting edge airplane, you are forced to go the "experimental" route, which sounds sketchy to people unfamiliar with the industry.

Today's GA experimental aircraft are flying higher, faster, further, with lower fuel burns and higher useful load than anything being offered by the major manufacturers. They've got electronic ignition, fuel injection, tighter engines, slick instrumentation, some are all composite material,...

All this being said, if I were a manufacturer, I would rip off everything Vans RV Aircraft and Burt Rutan's designs have brought to the table, with a pinch of the LSA market's new designs.

Think of what you could do with a production all composite RV10 style airplane with a Dynon and autopilot.

The Cirrus SR 22 came close, but with its old continental (yeah it's got FADEC but it's still an old design) and suuuper expensive avedyne, it's still not quite right. I dunno. Need more pilots.

So I somehow did this to my bike during a fit of rage

Wow! Not much you can do there buddy except maybe cut the frame and weld it together back again afterwards.

Maybe cutting the chain could do the trick too.

I thought about it but I'd say no. Better to cut the frame and be on the safe side.

What's the best airport design, in terms of runway spacing and directions?
4 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Dallas Ft. Worth International Airport

7 non intersecting runways is pretty awesome.
A diamond arraignment of 16,000 ft circles
Denver is definitely way up there in terms of runway layout.

I also like when the runways are parallel and separated by having the terminals between them, like LAX, Phoenix, etc.

I have a three piece crank set on my stadfiets (pic related) and it has a bit of wobble.

What do you think is causing this?

I took it to a bicycle shop and he said "it was broken inside", didn't explain further and quoted me 60 Euros for a fix. I laughed in this face and walked out the door.

Bought another second hand bike for 65 Euros but I still want to fix this one.

I think at worst it's needs a new set of bearing. What do you guys think?

And if you're wondering why I didn't take it apart already it's because...

Good job not falling prey to that con artist. The only reason I could ever see that being a 65 Euro job is if you somehow managed to completely fuck your bottom bracket and the threads on your bike.

The first thing I do with problems like this is usually the same. Take it apart, examine everything, build a list of possible suspects, put every thing back together (and make sure everything is secure), test it again, then go through your list of suspects and try to think which is most likely to cause the problem.
By doing this, you find anything that's blatantly...

Cool. Thanks for reassuring me. The bicycle shops around here are really eager to try to con anyone they see as a noob.

I'll get to fixing it when I can get a hold of my tools.
Yeah, bikes shops are like that in a lot of places. You'll see them get a lot of flack on this board. Generally people try to find one good shop in their area and stick to it.

If you don't already have one, pick up a bottom bracket tool. Which tool you need will depend on what kind of bottom bracket you have. The tool shouldn't cost you much. Completely replacing your BB should still be significantly cheaper even if you have to buy the tool and it will be handy later.

That is an Ikea rack. What they did in the picture was simply to take out some of the bars in the middle to make it fit a bike wheel.

Clever idea and super cheap and easy to recreate as well.

As you can see you only unscrew the bars in the middle with allen key screws either side and you're done.
