Can we have a comfy first childhood bike thread?

No.1651070 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I need to talk about this, not sure and don't care if it warrants a thread.
What was your fist proper bike? I don't mean kiddie bikes. I'll start:
>be me
>level around 10
>grandpa says he's gonna get me a bike
>oh boy MTB here I come
>it's a semi-road bike
>it's got a steel frame made of gas-pipes
>steel rims
>drop bars with what seems to be electric tape on them
>tires are commie-country-tier standard, maybe 25mm
>drive is a 1x5 with a downtube shifter made of plastic
>no indexing
>first thing that broke
>replaced with a steel one that needed tightening every 50km
>color is light green, the worst kind
>fuck it, still gonna ride it with MTB friends
>holy shit, it actually rides kinda ok
>go on roads, forest paths, dirt and gravel
>faster on roads than MTB bros
>learned to do mad skids on it
>had the time of my life
No idea what happened to it, likely it got sold when I got my first MTB in 1996. It was a trash-tier bike made by Romet and even now I can't find a picture of the exact model. For some reason I miss it. I miss my grandpa the most though.

A $2-billion mega-project could reshape Downtown LA

No.1645522 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
An Arts District cold-storage plant dating to the 1890s would be replaced with housing, offices, a hotel and shops in a proposal unveiled Thursday by Denver developers. With a price tag between $1.5 billion and $2 billion, the complex would rank among the largest L.A. commercial real estate developments in recent memory.

Continuum Partners launched the city approval process for a 10-building project that includes a residential skyscraper at Central Avenue and 4th Street, a historically industrial neighborhood dotted with art galleries, apartments and buzzy restaurants that has become increasingly attractive to tech and entertainment companies including Apple TV, Sony and Warner Music.

The Denver developer seeks to make over Los Angeles Cold Storage’s 7.6 acres for a project called Fourth & Central.

Fourth & Central is intended to feel like a small, walkable community with new buildings that acknowledge the industrial history of the area without appearing too precious in their design, architect Alan Pullman said. His Los Angeles firm Studio One Eleven is overseeing the master plan and designing buildings, but also brought in another architect to make the look of the complex more diverse.

“We want to create a neighborhood that feels like an organic part of the city that grew up over time,” he said, and avoid the design monotony often found in mega-developments.

There will be a public courtyard and pedestrian pathways meant to break the impermeable barrier that the cold-storage complex now creates in the neighborhood.

Anyone else bike around aimlessly when it's warm and sunny? It's quite relaxing.
