How safe is the DeHavilland Twin Otter? Are they more prone to crash then other planes, or are all the stories just fear mongering?

It's a counter argument when someone suggested the crash of DeHavilland Twin Otter that killed a politician was a CIA assassination.

Loganair operate a Twin Otter from Glasgow to Barra.

Fun fact, Barra airport is nothing but a beach and a control tower since it's a remote Scottish island. The airport can close due to wind or due to high tides, so it's one of those weird things.

These aircraft are safe in Europe, but they're very rare to see.

Listen, OP, and the rest of you who may or may not be totally clueless about saddles and bike fit:

You need to have not only the right *size* saddle for you, but the right *shape* saddle.

Selle Italia has a fitting system based on measurements of your body. If your thighs, for instance, are larger than the average cyclist, you need a different *shape* saddle as well as the correct width for your ischial tuberosities ("sit bones"). Otherwise you might end up sitting too far forward, placing more pressure on your perineum ("taint"), making riding painful, and making your penis go numb. You could even break a saddle that way, if it's a lightweight racing saddle.

Whatever saddle a bike comes with from the factory (or whoever you bought the bike from used) may not be the right size and shape for you. Seek out someone who actually is skilled and experienced in bike fitting, they will be able to help you find the right size and shape saddle, and get it adjusted (along with the rest of the bike) so that riding is both as comfortable and efficient as it can be. For the vast majority of all of you, you will have to have this done exaclty ONCE unless you make major changes to the bike (stem, bars, pedals, etc). It's worth the expense. Just be sure you're going to someone who actually knows what the hell they're doing, not just some salesperson in a bike shop who knows the basics, more-or-less, and DGAF whether it's really right or not. Many cycling coaches (who train racers) know how to do this; seek them out, even if they don't do it themselves they'll recommend someone who does know what they're doing.

why are cyclist such horrible snobs?

Just look at this picrel strayan douchebag - when he rode for Megalized he had to do the sponsor rides with Schlek bros and he just had to virtue signal with green TLD baggies. Also plenty of numale fags are now into cycling but also into moto.

In fact, why are all racers (moto, cars, whatever) so douchy?

If by "freezing cold" you mean below freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit), then you're a pathetic faggot. If you mean extreme cold, as in weather that is cold enough to make being outside substantially uncomfortable even in warm clothing, then that only happens in Minneapolis a few days per year. I have been riding bikes for almost my entire life (likely since before you were born), so fuck off with "hasn't been biking long enough". Cycling in Minneapolis is great in December, January, and February. Now fuck off.

Beginner to biking and would like a bike that I can use on mainly paved trails. I have my eyes set on Raleigh's Cadent 3 & 4. They seem very similar and I was wondering if it'd be worth spending the extra $$$ on the Cadent 4. Would like some insight, please.

a vilano aluminum road bike seems sweet

Hey guys, currently living in Brazil and thinking on making a gravel/cyclocross bike for really cheap since that kind of bikes aren't popular here and the cheapest used one I can find goes for about 1000 bucks.

So, the plan is to get a Btwin Triban 100, which has 700x32 tires and a relaxed road bike geometry, and upgrade the brifters to Shimano Tourney A70 road hoods (yep, they exist).

So with that humble setup I would put some slime to the tires and rock up easily some trails around Belo Horizonte to see which components I need to upgrade as they fall apart

What could go wrong?

Remember there's also the brake clearance issue, if you ride through mud those road calipers will gunk up in no time. I agree with the other anons about slapping some drop bars on a 90s rigid MTB.

>Drop bars for off road riding
If you aren't racing don't bother. If you are racing serious consider moving to a MTB discipline.
