For the last six years, I have been using OpenTTD to build a working virtual replica of the UK rail network.

Ask me anything.

A thread for questions about buying bikes


Got a Cannondale CAADX 105 that's otherwise great but I want a smaller frame size because trails and shit because fun.
I could buy another one with a smaller frame but also interested in the 2016 Kona Jake the Snake.

Also looked at Kona Rove (not sure about the 1x11 meme for my purposes though, for one) and the 2017 Jake (not sure about the ride of an aluminum fork).

Jake the Snake has thru-axle which is preferable.

G2gfast is very important but also usability (and fun) in places where g2gfast shouldn't go is of importance. Ability to fit wider tires would be great but not at terrible cost to g2gfast.

Rides vary in length ≈30-150 km (20-90 mi). Usually anywhere up to half of it is gravel/trails kind of shit. I ride in all sorts of places. I also ride a lot on snow and ice (4-5 months of snow coverage per winter).

Also taken a liking to occasional touring. Mostly tenting over weekends or so.

Bike of choice is CX because I'm afraid other more off roady/touring ones would be slow turds on asphalt. Also fun bikes to ride beyond their comfort zone.

Any other suggestions are welcome, too

tl;dr: which bike is gud 4 g2gfast but also adventure and shit?

Post questions about buying bikes here.


I'll start.

Got a Boardman Road Sport with Claris as a Winter/Commuting/Take Away To Work Away With In Back Of Truck bike recently. Been in denial but its a size too big for me. Its in good condition I reckon I can get £200 for it second hand. Was looking for a replacement of a similar cheap Claris/Sora second hand bike around the same cost. A guy I know is selling his Spesh Diverge A1 with Claris, good condition in my size, for £275. I've not really ever thought about the whole adventure bike/gravelbro thing before but it looks versatile and it isnt any heavier than the Boardman which is managable. Also, I often work away in places with bad roads. Should I do it, if I can sell my bike?

Trackless Trolleys/Trolleybus General

No.1047660 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
Hello /n/, recently a trackless trolley line in my city re-opened after being closed for ~5 years for road reconstruction. Route 73 (Harvard-Waverly) along with routes 71 and 72 were converted from streetcar to trackless in the 1950s, and remain as the last surviving trackless lines in Boston. As we just got a foot of snow I figured it would be cozy to go ride the newly rewired 73 line. Here are the pics I took.
