How do I tell what my wheels are made of?

The brake pads are very hard and they make a scraping sound. I was going to replace them but now I'm not even sure what kind of brake pads they are and what the wheel is made out of. My bike basically looks like a hipster fixie road bike but it is freewheel. I think the frame is steel. (The pic is not me bike.)

no they wouldn't, but the US's special compression standards only exist within the US and without such standards they could just sell normal train cars in America
I know. Is it true that the strength requirements result in such heavy cars that having Shinkansen/TGV -like trainsets will never happen?
Siemens in the US is pretty good.
From what I've read it was a structural flaw in the plow on the cab cars. They broke off and ran under the wheels. Was a simple enough fix, though.

Yes because it effectively demands the cars be made from American produced steel.

Do you guys know of any trains that are far from their homeland, and if they still operate- even recreationally. I'm talking about a large manufacturing nation having engines in a competitor's country. Like a British steam engine made in Whales, that now resides in Florida or something.

The only example of this I found was the Southern Pacific engine #9010 at Niles Canyon, also known as the "Kraut-" because German. Pic related.

CF7- General Motors basically stripped an EMD F-Unit of its carbody and gave it a more general-purpose look. Everything about it just seems...off.
I agree, but they're as 'Murican as it gets. But after being in the cab of that exact engine, I can SEE why they did it- the windows are actually useful now.
Suppose so, think it's intended mostly for switching jobs anyhow.

whats your stand on anti-inflammatories/painkillers messing up trainning?

once someone told me that anti-inflammatories where counterproductive after trainning, that they interfered with muscle regeneration/overcompensation. since then, i try to avoid them if i can. but i dont have a solid base for doing that. what do you guys know about this?

i mainly ask cause i did a hard breakthrough ride on friday, but at the same time im having some problems with a shoulder. last night i took 400mg of ibuprofen, and now waking up on sunday for training, i feel legs like new.. but also kinda "not pumped", or "smaller"(?) , i know it may only be psichological, or maybe they just got enough rest.. but i could bet the anti-inflamatory did something there.. hope the hard work didnt go down the toilet. it was 180km with a lot of z3 and z4 (going up to z6 a bunch of times).

feel freee to talk about any pills or things not to do or do that can help mess up training. thanks!

NSAIDS cause heart disease and gut microbiome disruption. You should never take them, for any reason

Asprin too. Avoid. Unless you have a broken bone, in which case opiates will do a better job anyways
smoke weed
You should avoid using them unless it's absolutely necessary to take them, especially if you're sick and are using them to reduce your fever (which will just mean you're sick longer). They do have their place as a therapaeutic medicine, but you shouldn't abuse them.

If you want to know more ask >>>/fit/, since that's a more appropriate place for this sort of thread.

I wouldn't ask those faggots anything, none of them know shit, and that whole thread has no right to even exist here.

There are extracts that are much more effective.

Only take them if you absolutely need them, like if you injure yourself hard to reduce pain and inflammation. If it's just muscle soreness from strenuous exercise or a headache from exhaustion it's better to rest and sleep than use a substance that makes it invisible. Remember, pain is a sign. Your body is trying to inform you take proper action. By taking painkillers, you're telling your body to stfu, then by exercising more you're exerting more strain on the body which will stress you out even further. If you make it a regular habit to rely on painkillers to override pain to workout harder, your organs will get stressed out from constantly filtering drugs out of the system and they will hate you, eventually failing.

Turmeric is great stuff! Turmeric is a super food related to the ginger plant. Dried turmeric is a tasty spice, I throw it on almost all my food. Anywhere black pepper can be used, turmeric will go with it. You should be combining black pepper and turmeric anyway as black pepper increases bioavailability of curcuminoids by up to 2000%.

As you stated, it is a natural inflammatory, a highly effective one too but clinical studies have shown turmeric increases brain derived neutrophic factor (BDNF) increasing neuroplasticity promoting brain development. Turmeric also has shown evidence for effective anti-depressant and cancer preventative uses.

Hey /n/, what's stopping me from building a small single-seater airplane from plywood and balsa or whatever and slapping on pic related for 350$?
Seems way too inexpensive to be real, sounds absurd that for as little as 450$ you could build a functioning airplane, 11.5hp ought to be easily enough to get me up and flying, right? it runs on gasoline as well so no expensive nitro required. Maybe i ought to make it my daily commuter, a lot cheaper than buying a used car for example.

This is amazing
Innit though?
Nah, it would have been a lot better with two gasoline engines than with two electric engines.


Why is it called the plane train when it's just a train /n/? It can't fly. Help me understand.

They didn't expand it to service the brand new billion dollar international terminal when it was constructed.

Atlanta's government always seems to find a way to make things suck
Source? As far as I was aware, it started servicing the international terminal in 2012, which is the year the terminal opened.
Holy smokes they did expand it. I didn't know. Initially the plan was that it would not be connected to the new terminal.

When they were building the new runway and were in the very initial stages of planning the new international terminal (2002-03), the airport's second- or third-in-charge gave a presentation about it in one of my college classes. He specifically mentioned that there were no plans to connect the Plane Train to the new terminal, and that the only way to get from the domestic terminals to the int'l terminal was to drive or take a shuttle bus. This was an aviation class so EVERYONE kind of grilled him about that decision, he didn't really have good answers for it, it sounded like he knew what a stupid idea it was not to connect them and but the decision wasn't his.

A few years after that, the airport cancelled the contract with the new terminal's architecture firm and hired another. I presume the idea to connect the Plane Train happened then.
The Plane Train in Spain moves mainly on a plain.
Maybe it's actually saying plain train?

I bought this well over 10 years ago and have held onto it. I wish I had bought the add-on that let you design your own layouts. It's pretty close to the real thing. It came with dozens of territories, this is a Conrail line in Ohio.

The company that made it stopped supporting/developing/selling it years ago, so it's vaporware as far as I can tell.

Most of the simulations that I've seen (haven't tried OP yet) were British (I don't care) or just plain sucked. Hopefully the one in the OP will be better.

These look like they took surplus walmart frames from the 90's and welded racks, fenders and other random garbage.

I imagine that fenders are mandatory in india because of the dirt roads and poo in the streets.

These things have rear derailleur guard thingo. Neat.
