Is Ekranoplan useful?

Ekranolplans are hydrofoils taken to eleven.
You may meet it's slower, less efficient, cousins at some time.

How to stop the wheels rubbing the frame or disk brakes permanently?

I keep getting my bike fixed for the rubbing sound but whenever I want to take it for a ride after a long break, the rubbing seems to be still there. I hate the thought that it hinders my performance even if there is just a little bit friction between the wheel and the frame (or brake). Is it not fixable?

thats a good looking bike except the pedals. get. mtn bike pedals and mtn bike shoes.

never heard of carraro tho
Wheels are probably out of true. Properly mounted wheels shoul shouldn't be running on anything.
How do I keep Sram from ruining my ride/day?

Every day I get psyched to go ride then find something fucked with my Sram shit that has me fiddlefucking adjusting something or other so it works again. It puts me in a bad mood because this shit happens almost every day.
>How do I keep Sram from ruining my ride/day?
Obvious answer: go Shimano.
check GCN's youtube for disc brake rubbing

Newfag to /n/ here... I started biking in my neighborhood with this rental service limebike, and the first time I rode I was able to do 2 miles in 1h16 m, and a few days later (today) I was able to do 3.3 miles in 1h16m... any tips to improve efficiency? I'm not overweight btw

Rental bikes are awful. You'll probably double your speed with a decent bike of your own.
That and just riding it more often to get more fit, I mean you just need to ride more to develop leg muscles and cardiovascular strength.

Personally I recommend a road bike but anything light is a good idea. Road bikes are the best things to take on roads, surprisingly enough.
Many rental bicycle integrated an electric generator that would turn your biking power into their electricity in order to provide power for every networked function on those bikes
What the fuck, you can walk faster than that
>i probably cruise at the 12mph
Not if you're covering 2 miles in 1 hour, that's 2mph. You have to be calculating speed wrong, I don't even think I could ride my bike that slow in a straight line

>the southwest failure was orchestrated by allegiant to divert attention from them
What about Frontier?
Frontier (and Spirit) despite being ULCC shit still have substantially better maintenance records than Allegiant. That said, I wouldn't fly any of them if there were another option, which there is 100% of the time for me; i.e. none of them serve markets from my home area that aren't served by other airlines.
>one of my Allegiant flights was a $15 fare before taxes and fees
Yeah, I'll roll the dice for that price. Allegiant knows their market. If I have the money to avoid them I will, but sometimes it's just too good of a deal. Better than rolling the dice on the eight hour drive I'm avoiding to fly with them.
Lol, where can I watch it?

docking and embarking/disembarking a 90-seat plane on floats would be a gigantic pain in the ass. The floats would also cause a load of extra drag because they can't be retracted.

In the 1940s and 1950s, Sydney airport had a railway crossing over one of its runways. It turned out as well as you'd expect:

>On 18 June 1950 a Douglas DC-3 of Ansett Airways taxiing for take-off from runway 22 for a night-time passenger flight to Brisbane, hit and partially derailed a coal train travelling on the railway line that crossed the runway. Only the co-pilot was injured.

Where is it illegal to have an electric assist bicycle?
The EU, Australia and possibly elsewhere would all ban OP. They only allow electric assist up to 25 km/h.
And a maximum of 250W I think.
The angle grinder was like 750W
This, so much.
It's not illegal to be electric assisted per se but it can only be 250 W max. Everything above that needs a license plate which you obviously will never get for such a bike.

Mounting an angle grinder to your bike isn't considered save either so the police will most likely confiscate your bike.

>not hybrid master race
I've had a Trek Navigator 100 for about 3 or so years now. Store seat was big hot garbage and the back axle needed replacing about a year ago, but it's held up fairly well otherwise.
to be prefectly honest with you all bikes are pretty much the same quality in their particular price bracket and type. just find one that feels nice to ride and you are set.
Wait. Do you mean a literal cruiser? Or are we talking about some sort of laid back comfort bike?

but don't those still shift the load to get around bends?
