    All electric is just as stupid.
    Where are you getting your electricity? Burning fossil fuels. Fantastic.

    I heard bikes are eco-friendly. I think. Perhaps?

    i read a huge article (relictantly) for one of my classes a couple years ago about how theyre trying to bring biodiesel to the mainstream but the stigma of diesel being dirty and inefficient and for big trucks that shoot out dirty black clouds is holding it back

    lets just all ride ****ing bikes.

    Bikes ? You mean like ride them for transportation instead of driving old gas guzzling suvs ? What a novel idea. Anyway, I find it amusing that an old fart like me who's maybe got a few decades of life to live on this here planet is more concerned about such things than some kid who is 50 years younger. BTW, I didn't even own a car until I was 26, and even then it was a Ford Pinto with a 4 cylinder engine and a manual tranny that averaged 25 mpg back when typical cars got less than 15 mpg.

    Except that they won't because bigger tires cover more ground with each revolution.

    Yes, which is why most good gear inch calculators use tire size as a factor.

    yeah, but they require more energy to spin, which was my point.

    Exactly.
    It takes more energy to spin up a 29" mtb wheel than a 20" bmx wheel.
    But once it gets going, the larger wheel holds momentum better.

My mailroom guy (I had it shipped to work) says that our local post office is completely awful and he's not surprised this happened, and that it's happened to him and other staff before. The USPS marked it as delivered even though it wasn't, and now there's no way to track it. Whee!
    I feel your pain. I had ordered a Pink Mountaintops vinyl last summer, it was supposed to be fedexed, but ended up being smartpost. It never came and we headed off for vacation. It ended up sitting in the mailbox (slanted) for a week in August in Phoenix. By the time I pulled it out of the mailbox, I had a nice bowl.

    Currently looks like this.

    Congrats, old jeeps are some of the most capable vehicles still on the road, and parts are cheap. Throw some black steelies on that bad boy and a new set of boots and you can take it just about anywhere.

    Also, f' the haters. Congrats for saving up and buying your first car yourself. Not everyone has a mommy and daddy that will buy them a brand new prius/jetta/whateverthe**** is trendy with kids these days. Plus, you'll care for a car you buy yourself much more than one given to you.

    I also own a gas guzzling SUV, yes it's bad for the environment, but so is every other car on the road. Unfortunately, not everyone can live car free and not everyone uses their car to drive around the city. I take my truck to the middle of the desert and camp there. It needs to be able to get me in and out of tricky situations where no cell towers are present and the closest sign of civilization is a multiple day walk. Some people actually use their vehicles for their intended purposes.

    Anyway, back on track...today I commuted to work and then did a club ride on top of that. I'm pooped. Time for a beer. Also, those honey stinger waffles are delicious!
    Hey guys, lets go play bikes!
