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?
>>932186 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,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>932305 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.
Does anyone know who makes a rack like this? I cant hang upside down or by seat b/c hurr durr hydraulic dropper. Cant hang by frame b/c wonky curved top tube. Rather not hook front wheel to ceiling but i might have to. Also post pics of your bike storage for inspiration.
I always remember what George Bush said when he was asked at a rally in 2000 >What will do for Public Transportation? I will improve the economy so you can buy a car and don't need to use public transit
