Pic related, British Columbia Railway train in 1980.
Neat! I used to have a relative who had a farm near Montney, BC (I had to look it up and found it 56.496618,-121.009951 ). The original house was located where the pin is. The field gradually sloped down to the r.o.w.
Every summer from 1976 to 1983 we used to go visit them and the BC Rail went right down their property. I'd hear the horn blow in the distance from the southbound train every evening after dinner and go running down to the tracks. Usually got there in time to wave to the engineer who always waved back and honked the horn.
I remember counting 60 or so freight cars and always those big green 6-axle Alco/MLW's, usually 3 on the front. Always the highlight of my day. :^)
Neat story, thanks for sharing.
Tiltshifted but quality
Should I go for a 2012 GTR or a '16 Hellcat Challenger? Opinions, suggestions?
This question is more suited to
ARE YOU RETARDED
GET THE GTR
I think its funny when people post on the wrong board and still get good advise.
They usually get even better advice, on their respective boards they just get memed on.
The GT-R will retain more value.
Do people who cycle without a helmet deserve what they get?
Well you are always accepting all the possible outcomes for your actions that you have some way of predicting, so ye
Press X to doubt.
>>1047615 >implying a helmet would have done jack shit in that situation >being so edgy that you use bike safety as an excuse to post gore
>>1047615 >mfw veganrider, that gigantic autist and latent homosexual, gets so starved of attention that he feels the need to start gore troll threads
Better question, does VeganRider deserve the hate he gets? In his failed so called real life as well as online. My answer is a resounding 'yes'.
A motorcycle helmet maybe, but a typical bicycle helmet will crush if you trip and sit on it.
Suggest some upgrades for my bike please.
It's adventure/gravel. Under-utilised for it's true purpose & mainly just used for commute at the moment.
It's Reynolds 725, so not light at all - wouldn't mind losing a few grams where possible...
weigh the wheels. If they're over 2kg for a set, they're up for an upgrade. If you ever intend to do some gravel riding - slap the current ones back on.
What's wrong with light wheels for gravel?
Nothing... provided light doesn't mean weak, which in turn implies expensive.
You don't need very strong wheels for gravel riding, it's barely more strenuous than road riding. Over 2kg would be very heavy for a CX wheel set (and I highly doubt his are), shit a lot of 29er sets are less than that with wider rims, more spokes, and generally beefier components.
Sauce on that lock? Also you can never go wrong with better wheels
Fapable bikes thread.
Post "the one".
then how about getting rid of the bars?
Granted, this cutie has a three-speed. Should get rid of that as well.
Can't do bar spins on that trash. Its about that 9t driver

I had a shitty day and old but I feel sorry for the boy.
it's not a matter of 'social norms' you absolute dolt, it's a matter of basic ethics
ethics that retards like you give no shits, you probably think it's alright to fuck openly in a crowded street as long as "no on else gets hurt", you utter degenerate
>>1047121 >basic ethics >violent assault against a nonviolent offender
one time i wanted to go east so i hop on a train with this dirty kid and he says everything will go just fine as long as we stay away from methheads and violent people and we ride straight from Oakland to SLC and the first thing he does whn we get off is smoke meth with some dude with a ducttape handle tent stake who keeps talking about stabbing people and all the crimes he would commit for 100 bucks and i happen to had 5 twentys peeking out the top of my little tiny pocket above my pants pocket. so i then hopped on a plane.
You are just closed minded and so caught up in what society has told you. The world would be a much better place if we could just fuck in the street.
consider going to the jungle to your brethren if you want to literally chimp out
What style of vehicle (Sedan, SUV, Pickup, etc.) what be good for running over niggers in Compton?
automatic transmission allows the middle finger to be proffered while the vehicle is accelerating, for optimal 'sticking it to the man' coefficient, while the high mpg allows you to hack in to the vegan defense satellite network to make the socioeconomically disadvantaged feel even more inadequate!
loading hint: go to yoga class
90s rigid mtb w/ glocks.
I do NOT trust myself with fancy high-end lightweight brifters. those things are too expensive to justify me owning them.
That's why I'd rather get my daddy to pay a bunch of fatasses to use them for me instead! As long as 3 in every 100 commuters have more than ten gears, we can all benefit from reduced traffic congestion!!!
Last one just hit limit, winter is closing in folks
Post your rides, post photos of riding, tell us about the ride. Even trainer rides are allowed!
Also - Saskatchewan anon, answer me
I squat, use the leg press machine, lateral band walks, and calf exercises (standard calf raises and eccentric heel drops)
It's difficult to climb after lifting on the same day, so I don't. The day after hurts if you're not used to it but you get used to it and it's fine.
Yeah I thought I was going to die tonight running the first mile round the park in the dark in the pissing rain, then boom got into a bit of a pace and ran some more with extra energy. I haven't ran for about 20 years I'd imagine so it's a bit odd using non biking muscles. Gonna stick at it and obviously get more than a couple of miles in on my running days.
My plan is to do some light cardio (jogging) during the week as I'm out walking the dog normally anyway so spending that time running instead of walking should improve my fitness a bit.
Weights I plan to do 3 times a week but try and keep away from doing them on the run up to the weekend as that's when I get time to ride and I don't want tired legs ruining my weekend riding. Started squatting, but mostly upper body but I really have no idea what's good to compliment cycling fitness. I'm guessing just being stronger from weight lifting and fitter from running will be helpful. I'm thinking the upper body strength will help me out with the longer downhill (mtbiking) sections as my arms and legs just go numb after a while.
>>1046842 >I really have no idea what's good to compliment cycling fitness
Whatever you're weakest at. Or if in doubt, squats and deadlifts.
>-28 °C last night >rising to +2 by tomorrow morning >falling to -10 by the afternoon I hate these temperature swings as they are typically associated with huge winds. Supposed to be a relatively calm period late tonight that I could go ride in when the wind drops to around 30 kph.
New thread folks this one is marked for deletion (old)
Went to my LBS for spare tubes for my 27,5 inch wheels. MFW this guy never heard of this kind of wheel size.
lmao you are just so god damn proud of that bike, aren't you?
>>1046037 >FUCK DROPPER POSTS
fuck you, buddy
1x and dropper posts are the best thing ever in MTB.
Wide enough gear range without cross chaining and the ability get the saddle out the way and not hit your dick when riding gets rough.
650 is a girl's size. 27.5 is for men.
clown bikes are a meme
The industry will soon push 28mm to replace 25mm just as it pushed 25mm to replace 23mm, mark my fucking words.
>b-but my bike came with 23mm, and I swapped to 25mm when you told me 25mm is fastest, now you say I need 28mm? oy vey, I don't have enough clearance, so now I need to buy a whole new bike, because these narrow tires just aren't fast enough! Here's my 6 million shekels rabbi, now give me that fast shiny new 28mm bike! Oh what's what? I need a fat bike too, cause 5" is just as fast as 25mm? Okay here's more shekels, I'll take a fatbike too! And I'll win all those cat 6s against roadies on this new fat bike!
>>1046878 >anti-Brooks memer
No one tire is the fastest. It's proportional to your weight. you want a certain amount of rim drop when you sit on the bike, meaning if you weigh 200 lbs you'll have to put your 23s up to 115psi and youll feel every spec of dust on the road. Like wise, if your a tiny person at say 110 lbs, you'll be fine on 23's
>>1047293 >>1046165 >>1046167 >tfw want to stick a Brooks saddle on my badge-engineered Raleigh Sports >mfw it would cost almost as much as the bike did
I know one has to pay for quality, but still.
It's both you fucking downtuber
