/drt/ - Daily Ride Thread

Somewhere on the other side of the globe, we are melting Edition.

Post your rides, post photos of riding, tell us about the ride. Even trainer rides are allowed!

I'll start off with a cautionary tale. I've always ridden with just one spare tube (aside from all day affairs) with the reasoning that if I had more flats then I'd just patch them as I went.

What this did not anticipate was a grass patch FULL of fucking goatheads, which ruined both of my tubes utterly and completely.

So yeah always carry two spares folks.

What was your first quality bike?

No.1065764 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Ended up scoring a pretty decent hybrid/cruzier bike today

Specialized Crossroads Deluxe, unfortunately its a little big for me, but its my first "real" bicycle and I managed to get it for an amazing deal.

700mm wheels

I think its a bit old as I cant find any crossroads deluxe models made past 2003 2003, which really surprised me because its in really good shape and doesn't look 14 years old so Im likely going to take it in for a once over at my local bike shop

Def need to lower the handlebars quite a bit but cant wait to ride for the first time in forever.

itt: Granger Railroads

No.1057897 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Railroads for whom a significant portion of their traffic involved hauling farm/grange produce (especially grain/wheat) across the Great Plains & Midwestern U.S. While there's no conclusive definition of the term, it's generally considered to include well-known railroads such as the...

>Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
>Chicago & Northwestern
>Illinois Central
>Milwaukee Road
>Rock Island well as a bunch of smaller, lesser-known & long gone railroads. There are some pretty good railroads here that often get overlooked, so I figured we could have a thread to dump pictures & discuss them.

Let's keep the focus primarily centered on the Midwestern operations of these railroads.
