Cheer me up /n/,
My bikes just been stolen, I'm an incredibly broke speech and language therapist student from the UK. I'm on placement at the moment, I spend 4 days a week treating patients and 2 days a week working my part-time job to try and scrape by. On my one day off, while I was studying in my room, someone broke into my back garden and stole my prized possession - an old shitty hybrid bike (It was the best thing I could afford and I loved it).

Cheer me up with pictures of aesthetically pleasing bikes.

almost pulled the trigger on $30 vinyl protection tape until I saw the thickness of 0.015mm, literally the same as duct tape thickness. Apart from aesthetics, is there a difference? Reapplying it is not an issue, going through 10 rolls of duct tape equals to two strips of protective tape in terms of price. Not on a mtb, just a gravel grinder.

Duct tape is sticky crap that looks hideous and starts fraying at the edges.

Icon of Amtrak, staple of freight railroads, and bane of furfags everywhere. What's not to love?

I've actually had the privilege of riding on a train pulled by one of these industrial giants, going down the line, passing stopped highway traffic, thinking to myself, "OUT OF THE WAY FUCKERS, CAUSE WE'RE A GODDAMN TRAIN!"

So yeah, you get the gist.

Caltrain, ACE, Metrolink or Trirail?, those are the only two operators I can think of that still use F40s and not F59s.

Expect a minimum 3lb frame. Any lower and it's prone to cracking
When you compare ti to carbon, the weight might put you off
>>
Even a lot of carbon frame manufacturers stopped giving frame weights years ago.
One of the reasons why is this: manufacturer A will make 50 frames, weigh them all, then list the lightest one they weighed as the weight.
manufacturer B's marketing team decides that in order to compete they need to claim their frame is a few grams lighter than A's frame, so they do.
Manufacturer C's marketing team sees this B's weight claims and goes lower, without even knowing what their frame weighs.
Next year A has a "New design" that is 20% lighter,...

Most of them give frame weights for their light weight frames, and except for a few brands, they're usually spot on (if you remove the hanger, cable guide, screws, and anything that can come off)

Navigators of /n/, how often do you refer to paper maps/charts?

Would you/your industry be totally screwed without GPS?

What is your primary backup if GPS fails?

As an aside, do trains carry maps? If they have to go though multiple switches who's in charge of keeping that straight?

Trains do not carry maps. They'll carry a timetable, but really, most crews just know the territory and where the crossings, switches, signals, and industries are.

I've been an infantryman in the Guard and have recently been flying as a civilian pilot, OP. I can tell you about military maps and aviation VFR sectionals, but not nautical charts

Both rely on a couple of common parts: You find a point with latitude and longitude, and the grid north is different from magnetic north, which your compass reads, requiring you to add or subtract the Grid-Magnetic, or GM, angle, before you go anywhere. They also mark key terrain, they have a massive legend to give you a reference...

longboards are fun, I learned to ride on one and then kind of felt lame on it after a while. Now I have a normal board with some big wheels on it that I like to cruise on a lot more, its smaller, lighter, and more manueverable and I can plausibly do a trick on it if I ever practiced that. I had one of the tiny plastic penny boards as well and they are a blast I would use it to bar hop and never had a major issue even when heavily intoxicated.
