Why is buying cars in the US so cheap?

energy use in the us right now = coal

charging up an electric vehicle = coal

yes, but don't forget the economy of scale

1994 - Gun Deaths per 100,000 people:
USA: 14.24
Canada: 4.31

Looks like a huge difference until you look at the fact that this is out of 100,000
USA [HTML_REMOVED]#37; of gun deaths out of 100,000: .01424%
Canada "" : .00431%

This is a difference of .0093%. A small difference.

Need some help, huge noob.

um, pretty sure tis a fixie. i cant cost, i can pedal backwards. just a bmx freewheel threaded on, its not a bmx hub, so its just straight threaded on. why is that sketchier than other fixed gears? to much torque on that shitty hub? seems to be working fine to me.

if it is a freewheel, you can freewheel. otherwise it is a cog, and you need a lockring, as the backwards torque would just thread it right off the hub. the reason using this said fixed cog would be sketchy is that the threads and overall wheel would probably break fairly quickly as they don't look up to the task.

That's not a fixed-gear, that's a singlespeed.

which is good, as threading a fixed gear cog on that hub would be sketchy.

go get a bmx freewheel, thread it on there, adjust for proper chainline by spacing the middle chainring, you have a cheap and fully functional singlespeed.
27" tubes = 700 tubes. it just depends on the width.

Juicy 5's vs El Camino's (should be easy choice but yea...)

i know hayes have a bad rep for having terrible modulation

El Caminos also have a rep (deservedly) for absence of stopping power. Even if you went Hayes, I would go HFX-Mags or even HFX-9's before el caminos. That being said, why choose either when there are strong, comparable priced brakes such as Avid Juicy 5s available?

That's not as cool as the 10 guys beating up one guy with bats and pipes that I saw out the side of the BART, though.

i heard the blood splatters inspired pollock's "guardian of the crack rocks"
