My grandparents live there if you are wondering, they have a small farm near to it. I might just ask if I can get picked up from Oshamanbe then if the service is that inconsistent. Are the timings very straight forward? Will I easily be able to catch a train and make it line up easily?
>>
>>1136033

If you are proficient in using Japanese websites, try Ekikara if you are or Hyperdia if not. From the results I get from Ekikara the layover time in Oshamanbe isn't too bad (less than an hour for both options, but I don't think you'd risk the one with a layover of only 15 minutes in case of a delay).

>湘南新宿ラインや上野東京ラインによる高速南北軸と遜色のない高速東西軸の形成。
If the project materialize that would mean high speed through service fron Chiba and beyond to Tachikawa and beyond? But how would that improve from current Chuo Sobu Express train?

>>1136034

Thanks! These sites are both very helpful, it actually seems quite easy to make it there. The timings seem to work out quite well. I should be able to sleep most of the way at least.

just get the civic. I still don't understand the purpose of this model.

>>1136009
The Accord gets nearly the same fuel economy as the Civic (comparing 4cyl CVT models) but is roomier and has more/better options. The primary reason to go for the Civic is lower cost.

how do we make cycling more masculine/right wing conservative friendly?

Ive been cycling for some 7 years (both road and mtb) and I couldnt help but noticed how hippie infected some parts of cycling culture are (I dont mind the good parts like buying steel insted of some yuppie GarbonTM and being your own mechanic, but the whole antifa spiel). While mtbers are more of a dudebro type, they are into shitty redbull culture and consumeristic faggots on par with CEO road cyclists.

Im not sure how it related to current state of road racing, but talking to older generation, they told me how cool road bikes were in the 70s, it was also a macho thing, but me being a kid growing up in the 90s, cycling looked to me as a numale/femboy sport.

also, look how much more swole 70s racers looked compared to Wiggins or Froome.

what happened? how to bring T back into cycling?

I bought some stuff there once. I had to pay int'l shipping, there was no one in the US selling the thing I wanted. so I also bought some socks and bartape and light stuff to help justify the shipping. everything was fine, no problems with anything. I like their house brand Merino wool socks. I'd buy more but I'm not going to pay the insane shipping again just for that. I guess most places sell something comparable, though.

I'm more interested in their bikes.
Their steel ones are probably gaspipe but they're extremely cheap for the groupsets they offer with it.

A bike equipped with Sram Rival 22 for 700 pounds is pretty cheap, even if the frame may not be great.

Planes like the 777 and the 787 have a much lower fuel burn making them more cost effective even without the economies of scale of the 747. I agree that a 747 is so nice but so is a 777 or an A330 (I've ridden in all of em),

Money, my boy. Compared to modern twin-engine widebodies, they burn more fuel, require more maintenance (largely because they're aging) and have more seats than can often be filled anyways (lost revenue).

I'm a shutin who has never taken a walk around the city or even neighborhood. How do I begin to do this before it is too late?

All I do is sit at home and work, basically have thought about getting on a bus and maybe seeing the city a different way, going for a walk or bike ride through the city

How do you begin to wake up and take control again?

Now that you've ridden the bus, to your stop, get off and start walking to your destination, check the route beforehand
I recommend a store to start with since (at least here in burgerland) you can go in, buy some food and leave without talking
If you don't want to go to a store, or you don't have any money to spend, then try going to a nice part of the city and walking
By now you should be somewhat used to walking around while there's other people, so this should be manageable
When you're ready, get back on the bus and go home, it will feel much better the second time, and by the third it'll be easy
After you've spent some time riding the bus around and know what that's like, its time to start riding a bike around
This is going to be the hardest bit to start, but the most rewarding by a long long way, riding a bike will change your life
If you already have one and it fits you and is a quality bike, then that's perfect, if it needs maintenance then ask here
If you need a bike, then i'd recommend starting with a 90s rigid mtb, and learning to do basic wrenching yourself
Post your local craigslist in our /bbg/ and give us a general budget and we'll try to find some options for you
As for buying the actual bike, that requires some social interaction, but you can do it, just know what to ask first
Most buses i've seen have a bike rack in front, so you have an easy way to get there and back with your new bike
Working on bikes is almost as much fun as riding them, and websites like sheldonbrown.com can teach you all you ever need
If you ever have questions working on a bike, feel free to post here, we'll do our best to help you out

It sounds like you're higher level than I was when I first started going outside, I used to be almost incapable of leaving at all
It took me months to be comfortable enough with being around people in close quarters to get on a bus
Maybe then start with a bike, so that you have some activity to do outside and something that becomes part of your life easily
Riding a bike regularly will change your life if you give it time, I absolutely guarantee you, its been the #1 thing for me since I started
There's something really magical about having such a simple machine that's capable of taking you so many places
And speaking as one high(-ish) functioning autist to another, wrenching on a bike is incredible, there's so many perfect components
You can see how a tiny, almost comically simple piece in one place integrates perfectly with another halfway across the bike
The design of a good bicycle is one of the most elegant things int he world, and tuning a bike to perfection is sublime
