Let's not do that.
For what purpose?
God no. The most I would is break up the massive Class 1s. Railroads that size are not good for competition.

whats the most overrated brand, and what is the most underrated.

of course this is merely opinion based

pic related is my most overrated. everyone in this city thinks they are the best you can get and would literally spend 2X the amount to get one.

Hi there Ano/n/s,

my trusty Sony MDR-E818 earphones (pic related) needed some soldering magic twice now to continue. I'm wondering how long until they' fall apart completely.

What earplugs do you use / recommend for use on bike / train / elsewhere that will not break the bank, allow situational awareness and sound at least half decent? Bonus points for having survived heavy rain. Mine did, going mute for some time but coming to life again when drying, no permanent damage.

GCNs latest show gives the impression that cyclists should get out of cager's way. Apparently we are second class citizens that should get off the road if there are cars behind us.

I think it will just make cagers even more self entitled!

It's a non-issue, the law in question still specifies that bikes should move over when it's safe to do so, which is exactly what people should already be doing whether it's specified by law or not.

It doesn't matter whether you're operating a bike, car, horse, or combine harvester - everyone needs to share the road and be as courteous as possible to other users, period.
If they are courteous enough to drive 5 vehicles in a single file patiently waiting for me, I think they deserve the reciprocation. I already do it out of habit if it's not too inconvenient for me. People see cars and bike as "us vs them", but I prefer the "live together in harmony" idea.

I went riding in thick, sticky mud all day today. Absolutely packed in all over the chain and gears. First I got chain-slip, then I got chain-suck, and finally I got chain snap.

Bodged the chain back together with my multitool and started making my way home, but it snapped again after a distance. Pushed for a bit till I met civilisation/street lights, then dubiously fixed it again.

By this point, it was dark, visibility further worsened by thick fog. Set off again, sticking to the pavement and not the road (I have no lights, because I'm an idiot). After...

Chicago reporting in. Working for one of the larger companies downtown. It's okay, I used to make a lot more before they gave me a new dispatcher. I don't stop moving all day and I rarely get break. Usually take it pretty easy and ride relaxed for that reason.

I ride a few different bikes but my favorites are standard road bikes with risers and thumb shifters. Once I get my old rockhopper set-up properly, I'll probably ride that thing most of the time. A good track bike has also never let me down.

The last couple weeks have been pretty rough on...

I'd take the East Coast cold and snow over shitty rainy season any day.

Just put on muh siqq layerz and old snowboard gear, maybe knobbies on the MTB and I'm GTG.

Rain makes cagers here go even more retarded then they are already and makes the already janky hills a one-way ticket to JustFuckMyShitUp Town.

So /n/, let's talk hoverboards.

How long do you think it'll be before these become so cheap and available that more people will be riding these than walking?

How do you think it will affect every day life?

Why do you not own one yet?

I rarely walk around the house unless I have to go upstairs. It's pretty fun desu senpai. I don't ride it outside because that's fucking stupid and the ground is too uneven.

The price is definitely too high for a used quasi-BSO. If you can get it for $150 that would be more reasonable.

I'm going to bump this thread until you learn to like it.
STI shifters are undoubtably a better shifting experience than bar-end.

THE ONLY BENEFIT of bar end is durability. This is agree-upon by pretty much e-v-e-r-y-b-o-d-y who works with bikes.

So if you are touring, or if you are frugal, bar end shifters are the way to go.

6. If the seat is mounted like the forks. -$10.

7. Overall shittyness of the complete bike. ( literally shit. -$.6.50.

its literally just an amalgamation of shit/spare parts, except for the front forks which are dangerously shitty.

You are covering Corando with paint stripe pollution

The grafitti on the streets does not help our property values

It brings to mind the visual cacophony that will look like, if you look there long enough it will induce a dizying type of vertigo

these BLACK streets with these brilliant WHITE lines, because believe me it takes away from your home, from your outlook on life

for me its very similar to personally taking all three of my daughters to a tattoo parlour and having them completely body tattooed
