I like them alot. It should be a model for light rail systems across the country. Even though it's kind of like the BART of light rail, they built it very well.

THE GREAT DEBATE: To helmet or not to helmet?

http://strawpoll.me/6033737

I ALWAYS wear a helmet, no exceptions. I also believe that people that don't wear helmets are idiots. However, I recognize that it is someone's right to make their own decisions, and I have no desire or intent to force my personal values on other people (however, I would encourage my friends to wear helmets because I care about them).

I match my safety gear to the relative risk of the activity. For road group rides or mountain biking I always wear a helmet, when casually riding to the grocery store (going fairly slowly on quiet streets) I don't.

Is Titanium superior to steel and aluminium in every way?

How does it rack up to carbon? I've never ridden a titanium bicycle but I'm thinking about getting a custom titanium bicycle as my next bike.

It sounds like the return on investment is extraordinary, it's hard to damage, doesn't corrode, lasts a lifetime, lightweight, durable etc.

Hey /n/ - I was hoping I could get some advice from you all on something.

I ride a decently entry to mid-level road bike - think late 2000s, half-carbon, Tiagra/105 level components. Bought it used from a friend for $250.

Today I'm riding to meet someone at their house, and I leave the bike on its side in the driveway. A few minutes later there's a loud crunching noise - a big utility truck, also coming to the same house - ran over my bike. The back wheel is clearly fucked, tacoed with spokes everywhere. The guy is pretty apologetic about it, say's...

God damn you faggot, this all could've been avoided if you didn't park in the sidewalk. But I digress don't fuck the guy for a little mistake in sure you can find a nice bike again for a neat price but at the same time you shouldn't just let him off the hook. Maybe you guys can compromise? I don't even know if this post will help I'm high asf love you op

Shoulda just taken it to gool ol' fashioned barterin' and said "Alright, just give me $800 and we'll call it good"

you should have gotten the cops involved right from the get go because now its your word vs theirs and they might just say fuck you.

$1100 really isnt that much even to us blue collar guys. Don't go thinking just because someone is blue collar that they are poor, some of us are making $200k/year... then again he could only be making 30-40k.

stop putting your stuff in stupid places

they own the factory that makes Treks, Pinarello, Scott, various alibaba specials, etc. who contract work to the factory.

Question:

What is objectively better on a train: A horn or a Whistle? Are they both the same or is there a difference in performance that makes one better than the other?
52 replies and 6 images submitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>889389
I love a steam whistle better. The sound just carries better (objectively and in terms of personal taste)
Not to mention it can be modulated. Each engineer had their own unique signature if you will, that others could identify him by.

I've been meaning to ask this though:
Why are American and English whistles so different?
American whistles have this deeper, commanding tone while the other sounds like an effeminate flute.
>>
>>889503
You can modulate certain horns. You just need to have the right valve. Those stupid push button ones are lame.

The best thing is no whistle at all

Anything that gets in the way of a train will and ought to be destroyed

>>902554
Wellgo pedals are just cheap Shimano clones, generally the bearings don't last nearly as long and they weigh a bit more, but they do work well - as you'd expect because they really are part-for-part clones of Shimano clipless pedals with a few things nudged by a mm here or there to get around the few patents that haven't expired yet.

Why shouldn't I buy a used carbon fiber bicycle?

>>
>>900980
I can't find any reason why you shouldn't get a used carbon fiber bicycle. I know lot of people who purchased bikes that has been used for almost three years, and when they passed to new hands they felt as stiff and strong as a new one. Obviously you must be very careful before you buy one (not just on a second hand bike, but also on a new one), you must pay special attention to the bottom bracket, headtube and seatstays for possible cracks on the frame, be advised, not every crack means a damaged carbon, there...

>>900992
It's not necessarily a crack you need to look for. It's any hole in the epoxy, a ding or what have you. Any compromise to the protective coating that could allow the carbon inside to start unwinding, building up pressure and then one day BOOM
catastrophic failure

I'll stick 2 my alu thanx
>>
>>900996
I think that the beauty of the aluminium and the effort to make a good aluminium frame can't be matched by the carbon. I mean, carbon is the way to go if you are racing or you are a hardcore rider, but the beauty of the aluminium/steel/titanium craftsmanship can't be paralleled
