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.

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!"

Literally, why would I buy a super exotic metal frame without knowing the weight?

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,... Comment too long.

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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What's /n/ think of longboards? I see hundreds of them around college on the daily. Are they worth it for cruising around campus or the neighborhood? On the topic of worth, what will an entry level, fully build board run you and what will putting down the mad money improve? Also why are bikes better?
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. I just got a unicycle which I am attempting to learn but the curve is pretty steep, Soon enough though I will be drunkenly terrorizing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
