/7700/ - Flight Emergency General

The transponder codes of doom.
>7500 - Hijacking
>7600 - Radio failure
>7700 - Emergency
Every day, there are a few pilots who have to change their transponder to one of the sacred trio for when shit gets real in the sky (although 99% of the time it doesn't mean they're fucked).
ITT, we...
-Tell our emergency stories. It doesn't matter if you didn't squawk 7700, just give us your tale.
-Monitor live 7700's and 7600's. You can configure alerts for when somebody starts squawking 7700 or 7600.
-Sit and wait for the inevitable brick-shitting 7500 alert.

Waxed chain masterrace

No.1682284 ViewReplyOriginalReport
A waxed chain is so much better than an oiled chain. Cassette & chainring spotlessly clean, vs a chain lubed with oil, which is a magnet for dirt and debris.

After I am done riding, I quickly hose the bike down with a pressure washer and rub off moisture with a cloth and that's it. Since using waxed chains I've never ONCE had to remove road crap / leaves / mud from the cassette, it's permanently clean. When I'm riding I can feel the drivetrain working more slickly, a freshly waxed chain is like a brand new chain with the packed grease, but even smoother.

The only legitimate criticism of chain waxing is it's a minor pain in the ass to thoroughly clean the chain (using petroleum or whatever) before the first wax. After this all that's necessary is waxing 3 or 4 chains every few months. And you save money on replacing chains, cassettes, derailleur pulleys, chainring and so on because wax is a better lubricant.

Reasons not to fly?

After this and United's announcement about diversity hire pilots and being treated like a criminal at the airport I think I can live without flying ever again.

Cycling Glasses

No.1682804 ViewReplyOriginalReport
What to do if you want to wear cycling glasses but wear normal glasses with lenses?
Contact lenses and special prescription strength cycling glasses both seem to be cost prohibitive.
I guess I'll just look for self-toning sunglasses that approximate the functionality?
