vs

Bike $500/once
Sweat $0


Riding a bike isn't a permanent decision, not like I can't go back to owning a car. Prolly try it for the summer anyhow.
A bike

Getting places
Working out

A DD

going to work
going to the store
going to paintball
going to friends that live far away
visiting family
hauling ****
not having to hope you can bum a ride when you need it
protected from the elements
traveling medium - long distances
not having to worry about if you can get groceries today
getting places faster in case of an emergency
Driving yourself to the hospital
and much more


If all that matters to you is money then go for the bike

Bike isn't $500 once.

$500 for a low-mid level road bike.

$6 every time you bust a tube, etc.

Things add up over time. Tires wear out, you need to keep buying chain lube and grease to keep it going well, you'll need tools if you plan on working on it yourself. You'll end up wanting a bike stand if you work on it yourself. You'll need a bike lock. You'll end up wanting to buy clothing that breathes more in the summer when you know you'll be riding, etc.

Even though driving is cheap for me, I really he don't think he will have to worry about the costs of riding a bike.


You should hang glide to work. Just get a running start.


One thing about a car here though, I definitely couldn't buy new anytime in the near future. You pay sales tax, all the dealer fee's, registration is like $500+ yearly on a new car, the insurance will be quite high, etc. etc. I'm amazed anyone buys new.

Nah for real though I hear good things about fenix. Biggest thing that I've come to realize I'll look for in my next light is a better means of switching modes. You loosen and tighten the head on a tn12 to switch modes and I hate it. It's really quirky and likes to switch modes on accident or more than once.

I don't trust reddit to recommend me anything ever.

People on r/saab are retarded. People on r/audiophile are retarded. People on r/carAV make me want to kill myself because of how retarded they are.

Problem with reddit is it's a bunch of passive **** bags. The second one person comes along and declares a semi-believable statement with confidence, the hivemind believes them and copies them and spews the same **** around that they do regardless of how true it is/isn't.

Would you take car advice from 4chan? Why's reddit any different? It's just another stupid img board, even if it's not a "chan".
