I bought this bike for 30e so it's cheaper than taking the OV-fiets every day and it does the job perfectly. I take a train then take the "stationsfiets" and go to work.

I have 4 bikes:

- an old ('80s) batavus "racing" tandem; speedy and great for short weekend trips

- an old ('70s) Raleigh Sports, most comfortable bike but a bit too small for me, so rarely used

- *an old ('80s) gazelle champion mondial, which is my main bike

- an old ('00s) "stationsfiets", pedal brake single speed commuter to get me from the station to work and back in the town I work

I like my Windows 8.1 more than Windows 7. To me it feels somewhat more snappy and some parts work better, I also like faster boot times. Also, as a long time Ubuntu user, I stopped using menus long ago in favor of pressing the launcher button (on keyaboard) and typing what I need. It's much faster.

Under is very popular here in the Netherlands where i live now. I actually find it correct when the loo is very cramped. When the restroom is so small you are touching the TP roll with your legs, it's easier to unroll when the TP is farther from your leg.

Not possible to specify none as a gender.

It probably will.

The worst thing that can happen would be the demise of Reddit. Currently, Reddit is a sort of honey pot which is stopping all the mainstream hordes from entering Hubski and bringing mainstream hivemind here. Digg used to be that filter to Reddit.

I'm 34 and I used to play games but stopped ten years ago. I don't do it anymore.
