How many miles is too many for a secondhand carbon fiber bike, considering that it was well-maintained and serviced, has never been crashed, was stored properly, and is otherwise in good shape? As in, what is this threshold thereafter it is a bad idea to consider purchasing, no matter how good of a deal it is?

No. But there is of course an age threshold where components have fallen so far behind current generation spec that a cheap new bike is a much more interesting proposition. And that's fewer years than some think.

The BV 141 - asymetrical reconnaissance aircraft.
By weight being evenly supported as well as airflow and the torque of the propeller, it apparently even had nice flight characteristics.

I live in LA and I feel like it's pretty safe for the most part.

I haven't gotten shit from drivers in a long time and I ride everyday.

Being slow and feeling like a dick isn't worth riding on the sidewalk imo

>Do you ride your bike on the sidewalks? Why?
Sometimes. When its busy and i'm going up a steep hill i'll go onto the sidewalk because i don't want an impatient cager side swiping me. Also when i just feel like cruising really slowly, just so i don't have to worry.

We talk about this a lot. I'm sure it's in the catalog somewhere, but here are the main points you will see. (At least from the anti-sidewalk camp.)

-Sidewalks are maintain like this, especially on the East Coast where we actually let trees live.
Riding around my town is like riding a scooter ramp park.

-You WILL be hit.
Drivers do not look for bikes before they pull into or back out of a driveway, and they do this quickly.
If on the offchance they do see you, because you're on a bike, they assume you're slow, and will likely undergage...

1. you'll want a frame in the 52-54cm range
2. The price is fair on that Allez, price is fair on the Argon if it's in good condition as advertised not needing any work or parts.
3. All things being equal, the Argon is a slightly nicer bike, both are plenty good for a first road bike, just know that being racy bikes neither will be ideal for commuting if you need to carry more cargo than you can fit in a small messenger bag/saddle bag.
>>
That specialized is worth more likt 600-700, its got a crap component set

That Argon is sexy for a lower spec race bike and way better than that SpecialEd.

You want a 52cm frame. 54cm is too big for someone 5'8"
I'm 5'9" and ride 52cm.

>>904248
If ALCo was still around they would still be competing in the horsepower race with GE and EMD, they came out with 3000 and 3600 HP models at the same time or earlier than their competitors. They would also probably be the most penalized by the new emissions regulations since they visually seemed to be the worst polluters with their thick black "ALCo smoke." The "Century" styling probably would have lasted in new models the same way that the SD40-45 styling lasted for decades, so you'd probably...

Also, the C-636 is one of my favorite locomotives, it's a shame the demonstrator units gave such poor performances when they were tested on various railroads. Santa Fe probably would have bought some if they had given a good demonstration while the company tested them.

The 244 was unreliable in road service from what I hear, but the 251 was a vast improvement. What about the earlier 6-cyl diesel though, used on the DL-109s? How well did those work?

Probably because some people here think it's 'dorky' as if wearing cycling kit doesn't automatically put them in that category.

IMHO they're actually kinda nice for what you're using them for. I was thinking of getting a fat wheeled one for running short distances from rail stations too.

Car culture created suburbs? People just decided leave their cities between 1945-1965ish just so they could pay for a house and a car and gas? Seems like an awfully expensive reason just to take part in a "culture."

You seem to have the wrong idea about roadie mentality

If you even think about riding a bike when the temperature isn't between 61 and 67 fahrenheit, no wind, sunny skies, and 30 to 50% relative humidity, you're a shitter casual who probably can't even afford a cage

Bikes are for posing next to in your team kit while uploading stats to Strava on a bright sunny Saturday afternoon, no exceptions

Hi /n/

I didn't know where else to put this thread, so i'll drop it here because bikes. Tomorrow i'm going to pick up this bike and I really don't know much about it besides it's an older schwinn "stingray" and honestly it looks rad, I have a couple other schwinn stingray/chopper style bikes but i'm not an expert, just like them. I just cruise around town on them people dig them.

Anyone know anything about these bikes? years of this model? Value? Am I a faggot?
