Ex-an/o/n here.
I might have said cyclists are gay in the past, but I kneel now.
I hate EVs, and will as such purchase a bicycle to get around.

I live out of the city though, and would appreciate advice on how to be safe cycling on rural roads.
Still won't ride public transport though.

Railgun Glider

No.1961226 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hear me out on this one. Why do we not create a large railgun and launch gliders from it for short flights, maybe like a tourist attraction around a city or something, it could even be fast short haul point-to-point travel too.

Picrel is similar to what I envision the glider looking like, except it would have longer wings for more lift.

E Scooters

No.1956706 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
So what's the consensus? Does /n/ like them, or do cagies and freds both hate them collectively?

I think they're kinda neat and I want one. Do /n/ anons own their own? What's the recommended buy?

I think that anyone whose bike costs more than $500 is a gay larper.
And my bike cost me $120 at Wal-Mart.
I put $100 in parts into it, which comes out to $250 with tax and gas to get the parts.

I've ridden a $1,500 and a $3,000 bike before, and they were only marginally better than the $500 bike I test-rode.

You'd spend $1,000 on an un-polished turd because you're that insecure.
