Is it worth being a bike snob or should I just get a bike at a thrift store that I can ride? I want to start biking on trails and in the park. Good outdoorsmen are super expensive and out of my price range though. Please give me recs and advice for a beginner. I’m not familiar with any brands.
How am I supposed to pack a banjo on any decent hike/camping/kayaking trip? It's already nearly as light and portable as a musical instrument can be but even caseless (which would make it very vulnerable) it's still awkward. Some people say not to bother bringing a gun because of the extra weight and mass but god damn it's a lot easier to walk around fully packed with a .30-30 than a fucking instrument
