No space for bicycles in this town, but I will be brave
only the frame and the front fork are original
But my newish bicycle from last year is lighter, has better gears, better light, better brakes, better everything...
And in any case it paid for itself within half a year.
How does a bicycle pay for itself? Are public transport tickets so expensive over there?
How does a bicycle pay for itself? Are public transport tickets so expensive over there? Over here, new bicycles are expensive. Things I would like start at above 400 e, the one pictured above is over 800 e. My current bicycle, Merida Crossway 8300, was less than 400 e and it has a saddlepost shock absorber which the pictured bicycle does not have.
There's a tax free cycling compensation of up to 0.23 cents per kilometer. It's up to the employer...
A bicycle like the Scott pictured above has to live for 10 years or plus with just minor maintenance. That makes 80 euros per year, less than 8 per month to take you anywhere with no gasoline, no transit.

But for that price (800 e) some people buy cars. At least I could get a brand new quadbike for it.
Electric bicycles are the future for city transportation.
I guess they're better if you're out of shape or something
Bone-and-muscle driven bicycle is the right way, properly environmentally friendly and healthy and all that.
I can see one of those "speed pedelecs" being attractive for larger distances though.
I see more attraction in a quadbike or a motoroller for larger distances. Or why not a motorbike or a car.
A motorbike requires a different license. You can't just do it tomorrow.
I couldn't tell you. I only know "too snowy" and "too slippery." The coldest I've experienced was something like -11° C to -13° C plus strong wind chill (i.e., a feeling temp of around -20° C). It's possible that you might need to wear a balaclava if it's colder.
