You seriously have enough blind people gunking up the sidewalks to make this a problem?

Apparently we do :lol: Had no idea myself, I just hated them because people can't use them correctly or put them in a proper place when they're done. I assume the first point is why blind people are getting ran over though.
That's what I do, I drink and I know things.

What about electric cars if a blind person is crossing a normal street without traffic lights crossing?

Some countries have introduced a rule where electric cars need a noise making machine on them.

Big chance Norway's going to ban those scooters now 'cause apparently blind people keep getting ran over because they are so silent :lol:

Should make it even and ban blind people from using that stick they wave across the floor. Absolute lethal to the ankles those things.

All those discarded scooters are probably crime scenes, tbh.

Look into adventure or cyclocross.

I have this https://www.boardmanbikes.com/gb_en/products/2170-cxr-8.9.html and use it to commute to work along a couple of miles of roads and then onto a gravel path for about 10 miles.  Works well.

There are plenty of options to look at though across all price brackets.

Nice bike. Apex 1x with hydro brakes is cool.

I suppose the first step is to decide whether you want flat or drop handlebars. There is no correct answer, just pick what you fancy. Maybe test (or rent) each one if you've not ridden a bike in a while.

Hoping someone with a 4k that they're happy with recs something. We're all sports fans. Who's happy with their setup when the game is on?

I bought an LG then returned it for the TCL linked an few pages back. I don’t know what I was expecting but the live sports aren’t that impressive at all especially on the smaller channels like MSG and YES. The quality on Netflix/Prime and the PS4 is incredible so I’m guessing the the cable companies haven’t caught up to the technology yet.

Correct. There are very very few sports cast in 4k. I think the premier league has the odd stream, only available streaming on Fubo. Most live cable tv/streaming services still max out at 1080i/720p.

Nah, I get that and am not particularly worried about that. Some TV's turn to absolute s*** when the ball is in motion and I want to avoid that.

You probably just want to turn sport mode on, but in general, the fancier the guts of the TV, the better it should be at dealing with that. OLED it is.

Quote from: some page i found on the internet that said what i wanted it to say
"OLED now takes the top crown as the best Sports viewing technology due to perfect side viewing angles, no problems with motion blur, and nearly perfect contrast."
