Does anybody here play train games? They can be either tabletop (e.g. 18XX, Age of Steam, etc. BUT not Ticket to Ride, which is just rummy with a fucking board) or electronic (although - have there been any good one recently? There's Railroad Tycoon, but I've heard the latest iteration sucked. I know of some cheap mass transit sims on GOG, however).

Discuss them here.

I still fire up OpenTTD on occasion. The modding capabilities in terms of rolling stock are incredible. One of my fav things to do is to start in the 19th century with omnibuses and then progress through the centuries culminating with extensive tube train networks transporting people at 4000km/hr.

I think that's a frame pump, familia.
95 percent of the time a Frame pump

Other times, a double top tube, for super fatasses. Think Gargan kind of fat on on a black diamond downhill run.
OK, I know about the "shocks pump", but a """frame pump"""? And how is that supposed to work?

I've posted the bike here before a while back but recently have found all of the pictures I shot of it when I went through the process of restoration and somewhere in between all that shit, racing alley cats in South Florida and drinking like a sailor at pub crawls where I was stupid enough to bring it.

This is the earliest picture of this frame that I have. It was a total mess. At the time I thought it was a 1984 Designer but some careful research later on led me to believe it wasn't.

At the time it would have had a mix-match of the original Shimano...

At the time I was also big into classic Schwinns, neither of those in the background are classic but I was in the middle of making an adult-size Stingray third from the front.

The story goes, 10 years ago I was contacted by a member of the Freakbike Militia whom I am still part of, about a road bike he found in the trash on the side of the road, thinking nothing of it I headed south and grabbed it at our December ride. Hey, free bicycle, right?

Tubeless tires and tires with kevlar belts in them already fixed this problem. Without the loss in grip, comfort, rolling resistance, etc.

Sure -- if you've got a road bike, and aren't just a commuter. And have an extra $500 lying around to invest in a whole new cockpit, even if that doubles the total cost of the bike.
>raise your seat, slam your stem
In other words, throw away the money you spent getting your bike properly fitted to you, or if you didn't do that, set yourself up for a repetitive motion injury?

What frustrates /n/ most about bikes, bike parts, bike accessories, or anything mechanical that could be fixed or needs a solution?

I'll start: the state of tubes is unacceptable. It's unreasonable that we can't make a tube that doesn't pop over the smallest things, leak too much you can't ride on it in a day, and cost less than $10.

Note: this is not a thread about types of cyclists or bikes you hate, or about hating bikes in general.

Try pushing a 2x4 into your skin, doesn't work. Now try a hypodermic needle. Tubes pop over he smallest things because physics.
Sure, smaller things will always have higher chances of popping tubes, but it just seems like with modern rubber it shouldn't be too hard to stop them popping all the time. Not a chemical engineer though.

To the multiple anons who have chinese frames on here, how have they been so far? and where did you buy it from?
I don't own one, but I'd advise against it. Most of the horror stories you hear about carbon fiber frames shattering catastrophically are either off-brand Chinese-made, or counterfeits of well-known name-brand frames.

That's what i would have thought but for them being really far apart, on the outside, extending quite far back along the approach roads and only on some of the roads and with no whatever the feeder kinks are called- plus I've just noticed a set of genuine check rails at the edge of the turntable. I reckon it might be dual gauge shenanigans.

Sleep in a hammock.
A LOT lighter (and smaller) than tent/sleeping pad.
As long as you can find two trees 9-15 feet apart it sets up much faster than a tent. You don't have to clear the ground of rocks and twigs.
The ground doesn't have to be level, or dry.
Bags will destroy your frame paint or worse if you have a carbon frame. Use tape/roll cuts of old tube around the frame where the bags are in contact to prevent that.
