how much would you guess i would have to pay someone to weld this up for me
granted i provided and cut the steel as well as drilled the two holes myself, ill probably need them to bend the steel

how much do you think they would charge if they cut the steel and did the measurements themselves?

also ive been getting 26mpg hwy
by how much do you reckon this will lower my mpgs?

lmao anon what the fuck are you doing son, this is dangerous and stupid, why can't you run a hitch rack like normal people.
This is probably the most retarded idea I've seen in a long time. The first cop that sees your autistic invention will give you quite a big ticket, for obvious reasons.
so is the rack on this pic also illegal?
and why the fuck is it dangerous? i can see through a fucking bike

i have a camper shell on the back and dont want a bicycle blocking the door

I had an RV one time with two bars welded to the front to hold bikes. we never drove it anywhwere, tho, but the previous owner did (he made the bike rack)

What do my fellow model railroaders think of model train shows? In this day and age of eBay and the internet it's hard to feel like you're getting a good deal anymore for the time you spend to go to a show. At the same time you meet interesting people and have the chance to come up with new ideas.
8 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.

While eBay and the likes are very strong in presence and make it alot easier to access railroad stuff for a (very) good price, swap meets still can offer goods for a fair price. IMO their strength lies in finding 2nd hand material. It is a good alternative to extend your searching area. Sometimes it's just a matter of luck whether you find something useful or not.
Swap meets are good for finding something you weren't actively looking for. Say, you just want some extra freight stock to fill out a yard? Hit up a swap meet, you'll find all the random stock you could dream of.
OP here. You both bring up good points. I try to look for new in the box out of production models and used stuff in great shape. I have a nice old collection from my father and I from years ago. I'm starting new with new motive power and rolling stock. Of course I'll still run some of the old stuff but I'm into DCC now and growing past the old standard 4x8 sheet of plywood.

I have gotten lucky and found a nice 8 car passenger set and many vehicles at swap meets. Some of those old guys hate haggling. Even with cash in hand. But for fill in pieces for background...

Some may remember this one from the troll bike thread, I finally was able to put a road fork and 700c front wheel on it, yet the top tube still slopes forward, perhaps even more so than before. Crazy ass frame.
Also put on some cheapo brakes, they don't work great with v-brake levers but it's a low-speed commuter so no big deal. Handling feels very snappy, pretty fun to ride.

You got a great bike to start on, and that's a really good price in today's market. Ride the hell out of it.
My only thing right now is my front disc brake is making noise like it's scraping. I already took it back to have the brakes adjusted and at the shop it was fine but now it's making it again and I'm thinking I'm doing something wrong. From looking at the usermanual the quick release pin need to be supertight and the lever is supposed to be really hard to press down but maybe I tightened the pin to tight.
No harm in taking it back to the shop if it's not a hassle to get there. In my experience, shops are committed to making sure your bike is functioning perfectly after you just purchased it - mostly because they want you as a long-term customer.

Thanks to years of smoking weed in my youth (which in addition to ruining my academic career) I developed gynecomastia which I am pretty self-conscious about.

While I am thin and would otherwise look good in a jersey my nipples are shaped like cones so I never wear form fitting clothes. What do I look for in a jersey? Are there any out there that incorporate flattening pads?

Tape your nipples. A lot of runners and athletes who need to run a lot in their sport do it to prevent chafing.

This what was left of my previous bike cause of an accident
Just hope that the bottom bracket is OK, that is so a shit job to repair and judging by the overall condition - not worth it.

I'm almost suggesting trying to use the usable parts of this bike to restore your old one.

Maybe he can postpone the new casette provide it's not skipping yet.

Only the rear brake and and the shifters plus cables seem like an immediate issue, but of course getting rid of any superfluous noises and and high rolling resistance is a great morale booster.

Does anyone know legalities regarding buying a bike from a shop on layaway?
My mother put a bike on layaway for me, for my birthday, and expected me to pay it off, the remaining $1000, to receive the bicycle. This was for me 21st birthday because she knew I liked riding my bike, and I really needed a new one.

The problem is, the bike shop didn't even ask her about sizing or anything, and when I went in they said they just put a 56cm on layaway, which is fine, but not exactly ideal.
Furthermore, when I asked them about the 20% fee off they said I would receive...

My mother also asked when she made the arrangement if the bike was 50/34 and could easily go up mountains and if the cassette was a 32 because "he will be going up mountains and all over with this" they said that yes it'd be fine, this would be the bike.
The bikes a 52/36 with a 28 in the back, which is definitely not what she asked for or exactly what I wanted or needed.
This is the first time I hear about this layaway thing, seems pretty shady

I would just ignore them
