With them being so expensive I want to be sure to buy one I love that will suit my needs and last years. When I was a kid my friends and I used to bike all over our little town on mountain bikes, and I really loved it. Now over a decade has passed since I've even owned a bike and I'm hoping to get fit again.
Bike would mostly be used on pavement and some concrete sidewalks, but I live in the mountains so flat roads are a rarity. Really hoping to bike to work when it warms up some, and there will be some very steep roads in doing so. There may be times when I'll... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>911790 Thanks for linking me to this thread, OP. Like I said, I'm in a similar situation, so I'll be monitoring this thread.

>>911793 Who said anything about riding through people's lawns? Guess we sometimes did that as kids but kids are assholes. Was mostly thinking of cutting through parks to save time, or like empty fields we have around here. Riding around on campus is a lot of grass too.
>>910795 >Came across this today, why hasn't it gotten more coverage recently? Because industry consensus is that it's not worthy?
It's not difficult to strap a few prop drives or ducted fans together with a gyro chip and make a "flying thing", people do it making quadcopters all the time. Making it bigger isn't really much more difficult than making a small one.
The two problems with the person-carrying ones are- 1) the obscene rate of fuel consumption... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm hoping to purchase a cheap motor scooter for the summer for cruising around the streets and hopefully getting laid a couple times because of it. I need a cheap, reliable model that I can find relatively easy on CL or ebay or what not. I don't care if it looks shitty or small, as long as it works desu. I wouldn't even mind like a mini bike. Also, what should i be aiming for in terms of budget? Thanks
So yesterday I filled my front wheel rubber and shook hands with the valve lets air in and the tightening of help so I took the rear wheel valve cap when the weather stays. Well, let 's take the hat off suddenly thrust before he is cleared. Front rubber surely today genuin I checked as it is empty. I took the evil then the entire valve to finish the job off, and defects in the roof so a hat is stuck in the cuntsatan.
Images allows someone could tell me what the hell happened?
For bike messenger Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), dodging speeding cars, evading crazy cabdrivers, and blowing by millions of cranky pedestrians is all in a day's work. Wilee is one of the best in a dangerous job, and his bike of choice is a Fixie, a lightweight, single-gear unit without brakes.
>>911138 It's a movie. He's bike had to be unique and interesting, and at the same time be a sort of underdog like he was. The movie pointed out how much 'better' traditional geared bikes where, several times, during several races and scenes. I mtb, so don't really have a dog in this fight, ride whatever you love to ride.
You have to carry a lot of consumables (fuel and/or reaction mass) to get to orbit. So if you want to get 10 tons of people, armor and guns into orbit, you'll need several hundred tons of rocket to do so.
This is the case not because of some momentary technological deficiency, but because of fundamental physics - you can't speed up without pushing against something, and in space there's nothing to push against.
>>906715 Yes, you can respace a Shimano 130mm hub to 126mm by taking 4mm of washers off the non-driveside and then redishing the rim (note that this will slightly weaken the wheel overall). Be aware that unless you have unusually thick dropouts, you'll either need to cut the axle down a bit, or borrow one made for a 126 hub, otherwise the end of the axle made for 130 spacing will protrude and prevent you from closing your QR skewer.
