>>913371 >Chicks dig guys with cargo bikes. For the benefit of the other readers of /n/ who may have difficulty understanding OP's meaning, allow me to translate; >I got a cargo bike and I was riding it and some random girl on the street that I don't know smiled at me (reason: unknown) to which I mumbed "Y-y-y-you t-t-too" and just kept pedaling, so now in my own mind I think girls like guys on cargo bikes. For some reason. I dunno. Stop j-j-j-judging me! (retreats into his room and slams the door)
>>913376 I've heard of people using nothing but cargo bike(s) to move the entirety of their belongings, including furniture, from one house/apartment to another, so it's not completely outrageous to think you could move sheets of plywood and other lumber -- but like most fixie riders, you can forget about any sort of hill; this trick only works if it's completely flat between point 'A' and 'B'.
Most sane people own a car/truck in addition to bike(s) and use them as appropriate. The so-called 'anti-cagers' of /n/ are either meme-repeaters or NEETs who can't afford a car and are too ashamed to admit it. It's only the rare exception that actually doesn't have a car because they legitimately don't want a car, and in those cases it's usually because they live in some huge urban center like NYC where only the super-rich can afford all the expenses of a car anyway.
>>913381 There are a bunch of people here who live in dense urban areas, I don't know why cagers think cities only exist in bad Joseph Gordon Leddit films. Considering people from NYC, SF, London, Sydney, HK, and similar places have a lot of reasons to be interested in trains and bikes, what I find odd is that cagers from Denver or West Babyjesusvillle Alabama have any interest in this board whatsoever. They should just stay in /o/where they can argue about the latest "hemi" in their coal roller

I'm about to head home from work, when I get there I'm going to ride though several blocks of cagers slowly circling the block, desperately hoping for a parking space, not looking where they're going, almost hitting pedestrians and cyclists and occasionally getting into arguments over who spotted the space first. Because the nearest garage is a 15 minute walk from where most of the residential buildings are, and no one wants to pay $500 a month (a bargain around here) to add 30 minutes of walking every day (even though it would probably be faster than their stupid block circling routine)
The ones in cages are mostly first generation immigrants for whom cage ownership (usually a late model minivan or SUV) is a mandatory status symbol in their community. It's completely illogical, but they put up with all that trouble and expense to show they've "made it". The white people meanwhile are getting off the train and walking straight home, except the ones like me who insist on commuting by bike even though it's freezing outside.

My dad escaped from the Soviet Union to the USA in the late early 60s; a bunch of his family members moved over in 1989/1990 after the USSR collapsed.
We had a grand total of three cars when I was growing up - a teeny Plymouth Horizon, traded it for a minivan when his sister and her family moved in with us for two years, and a different used minivan when the first one died after a decade. My mom traded it in for a Prius after I left for college - the first new car she'd ever bought. (We're not poor, btw - actually very well off)
Meanwhile, my dad's newly-immigrated family members all spent their first 20 years in the USA buying a new car every 2-3 yard like clockwork, even though they were often living paycheck to paycheck - only slowing down when te recession hit in 2008. Completely nuts, but always having a new car is THE status symbol for them.
>>913403 >Fairymobile faggots trying to tell other people how to live their lives Dawg, riding a bicycle isn't some huge lifestyle like you make it out to be. It's a toy used by children, alcoholics, and other undesirables because they either cannot be trusted to safely operate a motor vehicle, or they cannot see the utility and benefit of an efficient, fast, and functional form of transportation.
