I want to buy a new e-scooter.
I'm hesitating between Vsett 9 and Techlife Q3. Both have a top speed of 45 km/h and NFC reader/lock.

Vsett 9
>$900
>better brand
>17,5Ah 52V
>650W (900W) motor
>8.5 tyres, one solid one pneumatic
>25 kg

Techlife Q3

>$950
>less known brand

no, faggots on these things look so stupid, one pothole and ur airborne
30km/h max
>>
>>2002856
>30km/h max
lol, with the right controller (firmware modification) both could probably go more like 45km/h but max distance would be less then 40km with these batteries. e-scooter trade off between distance, weight and performance always sucks. e-motors are better - sweet 1500 watt motor with a 80Ah 60v battery and a little controller mod. 20 on the bike lane, 70 on open road, and that easy for 100 km

what size boulders and what size skid/ dozer?
also, how far do you need to pull them and whats the terrain like? anywhere you can use pulleys?
also this >>2000771

>>2000771
>>2000778
It's for a sea wall, so bigger is better and there are many different sized ones so I'll definitely be looking into that hammer drill and wedges/feathers. They need to move 200-400 feet on mostly unpaved but solid enough, even terrain.

Looking at skids carry capacity it seems enough and they seem to have attachments for picking up large objects. Would be useful for excavating the rocks too.

just a suggestion, but maybe a small articulated loader could be more what you want/ need
in my experience they can carry more for a give machine weight, and they can pull a good amount too when necessary
picrel is the model my dad has and it can lift about 1000 kg (so roughly 2000 lbs) at the end of its reach without any extra counterweight at the back, brochure says it can lift up to a max of 1700kg (~3700 lbs) with counterweights installed

Aren't those thing basically self adjusting. Tighten them up just sligthly then squeeze the brake and they adjust themselves. You can put a plastic card between the rim and the trailing edge of the brake pad before you squeeze to get the toe-in automatically.

If you want help picking out a bike, post your height, what you will use the bike for, and a link to your local craigslist.

>I want to buy a new bike. What should I watch out for?
Don't buy Wal-Mart garbage.
Don't buy department store garbage.
Beware of amazon and alibaba garbage.

>Should I buy from Bikes Direct?
If you are clueless enough that you need to ask, no. If you have no mechanical ability, no. If the alternative is walmart, maybe. Ask first.

>I want to buy a used bike. What should I watch out for and where should I buy?

Craigslist is good for old bikes. Pinkbike.com/buysell is good for used modern mid- to high- end mountain bikes.
Ask in /bbg/ if uncertain.

I actually want to leave the land and live on a boat, even willing to start with a shitty little boat just to get into it. I have fallen to the youtube algorithm gods and have been watching catamaran reviews for a week straight. I would love to have like a 30 ft catamaran, it's easily the size of a small house, and would have plenty of space for my autistic hobbies as well. What I would really love to do is get a small sailboat, remove all the mast and rigging, and convert it to 100% solar and wind power, by building basically a large flat roof of panels above the entire boat, and install some fancy vertical wind turbines, then replace all the engines with super efficient electric motors.

sorry, but is this a shifting issue or is this the chain skipping teeth on the gear it's in?
what you describe is very similar to that, which would mean the chain is worn out and stretched, needs replacement.

I've ridden a chain with such a problem. you could spin but it would slip when you laid down power. not to another gear, though. the shifting was fine.
sorry if I'm barking up the wrong tree.
>>
>>2003221
anon said in a previous post that they replaced the chain and cassette
>>
>>2003206
Chainrings in okay shape?
If it's an old road bike make sure the QR is tight enough. When mine wasn't it would shift gears on me.
Still, not your issue but if the drivetrain is good, and the frame is staying stiff I can't explain it unless your chain is catching on something.

I've been told that high thread count makes less durable tyres because there's less rubber to act as bond.

I heard it's because the threads are thinner so easier to cut, then you end up with the dreaded tire bulge via the carcass which is a thing I do not ride on. Specially at 80+psi.

All I know is it's easier for me to just follow what the manufacturer says about a tire being racing focused or training/durability until I get it in my hand.

again, s-works, the high end pinarellos and colnagos, etc etc
and what does "made by hand" even mean in the context of carbon manufacture? like, manually lugged carbon tubes, which about three places do and which arguably isn't all that good anyway? Time RTM is perhaps the highest-end monocoque carbon construction there is and it's a largely mechanized assembly line. But you don't even need to get particularly gucci to spend more on a road bike with no suspension than you do on a perfectly good Honda racing dirt bike--MSRP on a CRF250R is like 8500, same as a Tarmac SL8 Pro (not S-works) or a Madone SLR with Rival (not Dura-Ace or Red) or a Cervelo R5 with Ultegra or a last-gen top-of-the-line TCR. Mechanized Taiwanese factory, industry standard carbon manufacturing, five or six sizes.

This thread is for talking about railways, and things related to railways, in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Trips, tracks, tickets, trains and stations, they're all good - making up rules is boring so let's just be normal. Questions are, of course, most welcome.

If you feel like travelling, head over to National Rail Enquiries (nationalrail.co.uk/); tell it where you're leaving from and where you're going to, and it'll tell you how you're going to get there; then it'll hand you over to a train operator to buy a ticket. The golden rule is that it doesn't matter which train operator you buy a ticket from, as they'll all sell you a ticket from anywhere to anywhere, for the same price. If you're a visitor from overseas, your best option is probably Trainline (thetrainline.com/) - they charge a booking fee on top of the ticket price, but they'll accept just about any payment card. There's also trip.com/, who are apparently a 'thing' with overseas students: I've not used these myself, so please speak up with any thoughts.

Here's a few links:
~The Man in Seat 61 (seat61.com/) - easily the best rail travel resource out there.
~Geoff Marshall (youtube.com/@geofftech2) - Likes trains. Mostly harmless.
~A Visual History of Railway Rolling Stock in Great Britain (gaelan.me/br-stock/)
~Realtimetrains (realtimetrains.co.uk/) - live train timetables: ideal for keeping on top of ETAs and platforms.
~TIGER (tiger.worldline.global/home/) - live station departure boards.
~Traksy (traksy.uk/live/) - live signalling information.
~Openrailwaymap (openrailwaymap.org/) - railway infrastructure, mapped.

I went on a trip to Leicester last year. The reason was to ride one of the last diesels out of St Pancras. It was a nice city. Not too busy, decent architecture, Nice restaurants. I went to the Richard III museum then went home. The only downside was that it was more Asian than Birmingham. Everyone says Birmingham is New Bangladesh but I actually didn't see any in the city centre. I only saw them in Saltley/Alum Rock. In Leicester the city centre was 100% Asian.

The Central line is still grotesquely over capacity even with Crossrail. Before Crossrail it was simply unusable, even outside rush hour.

The fact that Crossrail is now the busiest rail line in the United Kingdom, and takes a fifth of all UK rail passengers by itself, should be sufficient justification for its existence. Crossrail 2 would be great, and would ease pressure on the Northern Line, but it was always the East-West corridor that was the most urgent need.
