Pumper Dumpers

No.1076230 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Hi, I know nothing about trucking, just starting to get into it.
I have been looking around at different Pumper trucks, and started to look at alibaba to see what the price was in a capitalist market.
Apparently I could buy the truck of my dreams, 4 wheel drive, small, but big enough to haul a tank with a pump attached and a cummins engine for 1/5 - 1/6 of the price in America.
What gives?
Why can't I buy my chinese truck and run my business (my father told me it would never be allowed in america)?

Electric Bikes Now?

No.1066809 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
Since /o/ is 98% bike threads I thought I'd ask:

What's the current best e-bike shit out there? I search and I see a bunch of $5k go-fund-me stuff years out. If I wanted to e-bike today what is the best bike, package or add a motor that currently is available?

/BRT/ - Bike Training and Racing thread

No.1066224 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
Sprint finish edition

Previous thread (currently on auto-sage): >>1051703

IN THIS THREAD, we discuss:
* Training for bike racing (road, MTB, track)
* Bike racing tactics and strategy
* Bike handling skills relating to racing (pacelining, maneuvering within the pack, blocking, when to attack, etc)
* Your races
* Pro races
* Equipment choices (including power meters, heart rate monitors, etc)
* Anything and everything relating to bicycle racing and training

When discussing power, post W/kg (watts per kilogram), not just watts.

If you're new to bike racing and need to get started, you can start with The Cyclists Training Bible (aka CTB); there's a copy of 3rd Edition online you can peruse: (please buy a copy if you like it).

If you're interested in Power Meters for your bike, here's a good article that covers most of the choices available on the market:

If you're interested in doing some reading on basic race tactics and strategy, you can check out the following two books:
"Racing Tactics for Cyclists" by Thomas Prehn
"Reading the Race" by Jamie Smith and Chris Horner

Ask questions, and share your knowledge, expertise, and experience; everyone interested in training to be a better cyclist are welcome.
