Pro-tram rally today was reasonably successful, easily around 1000 participants. Two groups marched from either of the tram termini along the avenue where the ttam would run, and met about halfway. We were escorted by the police and git to cut traffic as we passed through, which got cagers pissed. Breddy gud fun desu

Railways are no good! Rip them up; turn them into roads! That'll cheaply and effectively increase traffic flow and improve the economy!

defund and disband it. there is no reason to have long range passenger trains when airliners exist.

There are practical limits to how big the engines can be. So I think a more likely they'll have two engines generating thrust and electricity, plus at least two extra fans consuming electricity to generate thrust. Though IIRC I've previously tried and failed to convince others of the merits of that solution.
The older economy seats are way more comfortable than the thin pieces of plastic the have now

Set up traffic cameras at several different types of intersections, cameras along stretches of different types of roads, and orient the cameras so that they're high enough up to see into a car and aren't very visible, then count traffic violations viewed by each camera

You're an idiot and you've made a fool of yourself. You think you've made me or anyone angry, when all you've accomplished is making me shake my head slowly in disbelief that anyone could be so dumb.

Today I got an NOS Blackburn mtf-1 rack. meant for 26" and keeps your panniers high off the ground. My rear panniers fit well but doesn't fit the fork with some tactical bending. I will be shelving this until I have a real need to carry shit. Very happy with it otherwise.
Cycling About did an aero test on panniers, inspiring me to move them forwards: https://www.cyclingabout.com/speed-difference-between-panniers-bikepacking-bags-aerodynamic-testing-results/
I should have bought a low rider rack but I'm a unique individual who rides NOS shit from the 80s. Oh well. It will be cool when I stabilize a massive bar bag with it

>Dura Ace 9s
ma nigga, goat part, I love the cute little box and cable it comes with
one gen later and it loses the friction ring
shimano is pretty based for still making them
The one I was messing with was a Schwalbe Marathon Winter with 200 studs and I probably would have had to put a patch on every one of them. After I ordered a replacement tire cut the other one in half just to see what the cross section looked like. That heavy tire has a puncture protection strip but it doesn't cover the studded part of the tire.
I actually got these in your recommendation I think. I didn't know 10sp didn't do friction. Right now I'm running 9 speed cassette but friction shifting it with an 8 speed bar end. This is my return to indeed shifting to see if I like it. Always wanted longer bars ends without the plastic nub on the end. Very excited

Disappointing! Schwalbe Professional Tires needs to get their shit together

Samson T& B ?
I used to have a picture of that tug in action in the Elliot Bay. Can’t seem to find it though.

Contracted for them. Moved freight and barges for Samson. Had a couple of their guys ride along for several weeks.
How the fuck do they fit so much power into tugs? They don't usually have huge funnels either. It seems impossible.

since its electric, you dont need a licence

>you dont need a licence
Where are you? There's a difference between you not needing a license, an endorsement depending on the max displacement/HP/speed of the vehicle in different jurisdictions.
>Commuting on a trials bike would be fucking stupid and pointless.

If you have a trials bike and you actually just commute with it, I don't see the problem. If you don't have the self control to throttle back on a commute and save the crazy stuff for trail riding on the weekend, you should probably stay off the street on any vehicle.

Also, consider what someone said about wearing out expensive dirt tires riding on pavement.
It's motorised. You need a licence.

Been awhile since a thread like this. Never get too comfortable guys.. Friend had his front wheel and saddle taken. I dont get it, I dont even see saddles or many wheels on Craigslist.

What tools are used to steal bikes? I want to make something hard as fuck to break into.

used to do this. Don't have a ss or fixie, or any beater now. I'd have to lock up my main commuter :(
Get a bike that looks really shitty but rides pretty well. No one will want to steal it. I jacked up a round tube alloy bianchi frame by painting it with a rattle can, put white bar tape on in the opposite direction, smeared it with dirt, and use box section rims... but the rims are also Mavic tubulars with Vittoria tires that have the labels blacked out. The hubs are rattle canned shimano high-flange fixed gear hubs. The handlebars are alloy nitto bars. Brake pads are koolstop. Brakes are sram red 22 caliper brakes with labels blacked out. Whole thing weighs about 17 pounds and rides like a dream but it is the last bike someone would steal. Just looks like some dumb hipster fixie when in reality it is a smart hipster fixie that's still admittedly kinda dumb.
Can we see it?
My bike getting nicked in Portsmouth UK. Forgot to lock it. Was fun recovering it :)

Bike insurance was ~$130 for this year of coverage for me. Although my bike is worth maybe $1500.
>t. Santa Barbara
I'm not sure if you consider that an expensive bike or not. Insurance is gonna cost way more if your bike is worth way more.

Also, no insurance company will insure a bike under $500. It's only considered "sporting equipment" at that price range.

This aircraft is aesthetic
When everyday is shoulders day

Awesome, thanks a lot for these. Close up photos of the cockpit panels are very hard to find.

My understanding is that these and the AN32s were designed for operation in the less well developed/hard to access areas of the Soviet Union so the undercarriage is designed for poor/no runway situations and the high engine mountings both reduce FOD ingestion and improve aircraft performance in "hot and high" environments by utilizing the Coanda effect to improve lift.
You have to think in Russian.

Thinking about taking the Lake Shore Limited out to Chicago this summer. Does anyone know much about it? My choice is either flying from Toronto to Chicago, or taking the train from Buffalo. I'm about an hour from the train station, and an hour from the airport.
I've taken it between New York and Chicago and a few times on shorter stretches.

Like all long distance rail outside of the NEC it's hilariously slow and most of the passengers are kind of on the fringes of normal society. Old folks who are afraid of planes. Youngsters who wanted try something "different". Just general all around weirdos. And then there are the foamers, of course.

It can be fun if you have an appetite for that sort of thing. Because you're sort of in this traveling caravan for an extended time with alcohol and whatnot, it's easy to find people to talk to and even if you're quite weird, you're probably not going to be the weirdest one on the train.

If you're just doing it as transport, you're going to be much happier on an airplane.

His BMX videos look so comfy, it made me buy a BMX bike. But was very disappointed by how uncomfortable those bikes are.

its always disorienting to jump on a bike you dont normally ride...
I had a little trouble jumping from bmx to mtn, but mtn to cx and road was really tough... now I mostly ride my old cruiser bike and catch myself trying to back pedal to slow for the 1st few miles when I am on the road bike.
