/BBQ/ - Bike buying questions 2k17.1

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.

We are all aware of the multi-track drifting meme, but what is the technical term for this type of railway operations error, and what are some real-world examples of it?

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

Ask me anything.
