Sailing

I've decided to go ahead and buy a Ranger 37 (pic related) for $2,000 (seems like an amazing deal) or less (still, I might as well haggle) in cash. I cut my teeth crewing on my family's Ranger 26 growing up, so I feel like the same boat plus eleven feet ought to feel just right to live aboard and go full cruising lifestyle. I haven't been sailing in ages, however; what should I know/do/think? Also: sailing general (with particular focus on cruising aboard sailboats).

Someone tried to cut through my U-lock but must have gotten scared off before they finished. What is the best way to protect my bike without fucking doubling the weight? Do I really need one of these?

Im starting to get into ebikes to do my traveling/commuting/trailing and i am kind of confused about why ANY of them are so expensive when the only real difference that seems to matter on a Ebike is the motor and the battery. i know some get expensive because of "carbon fiber" memes, but honestly that is overkill and its not what im going for anyway.

so im browsing around for ebikes, all over 1.3k, untill i see the Super 73 and the Sondors pic related bike. this is when i started scratching my head and wondering why ANY ebike is over 1k (frames aside). the Super 73s cheapest bike model is about $993 and thats only becauses its on sale. i thought to myself "wow thats a cheap bike compared to the other bikes ive seen" and i actually thought it was as cheap as a ebike was ever going to get unless i custom make one from scratch.

then, 4 days later i come accross the sondors original bike (pic related), which was another indiegogo bike for only $500. i thought that this bike was obviously worse than the super 73 right? wrong, its actually MORE POWERFUL than that 1k bike... the sondors also has these $100 upgrades to make the bike even more powerful and comfortable to ride. but thats not all, its most expensive model is still under $1000 and it has even double the power of the sondors original.

so im still sitting here scratching my head. why does anyone buy these 1700-3000 Ebikes when the only thing that matters is the motor and battery which can be built and bought for under $1000? unless you are on mountain bike trails the frame LITERALLY doesnt matter what so ever. some please explain. the only purpose of a ebike is to assist in movement, why is $500-$1000 not the standard for ebikes? its not like its made from "cheap material" either. a 36v 12.8ah li ion battery is above average for any normal person and 48v 17.8ah li ion is just that much better. so whats the deal?

Orbea Gain.

What do you guys think about the new Orbea Gain eBike? There are many versions, from proper road bike to citybike (which i find the most interesting, pic related).

It has all the electric parts pretty well concealed so it doesnt look like an awful frankenshit.

Are there any known late 19th-early/mid 20th Century intact examples of tramp steamers left in existence (not counting shipwrecks/abandoned ones)? Any still in revenue service? I imagine some obscure freighter line in a Third World shithole might still have one or two up and running on duct tape.

>Charlie Alliston, then 18, was travelling on a fixed-wheel track bike with no front brakes before crashing into Kim Briggs in February last year.


It seems to me that if cyclists don't voluntarily only ride bikes with brakes front and rear then a much more draconian solution will be implemented. Cycle shops must stop profiting from fashionable recklessness and perhaps it might even be justifiable to voluntarily take out insurance policies before they too are mandatory.

It's time to stand up and take responsibility as a community.

I want to get an ADS-B dongle with an indoor antenna so I can connect it to my mini HTPC and get a free pro membershit at flightrader24 by sharing my data.

BUT

I live in a house basement with above ground windows and I cant really mount something on my roof or in my attic because its not my house. The living room has windows in 3 directions so I figure its got the best chance of picking up some signals.

My house is under the approach to my cities airport so planes are usually flying within 10NMI at an altitude of 3500FT. Will I be able to get some signal down here?
