"/n/ - Transportation" is 4chan's imageboard for discussing modes of transportation like trains and bicycles.

Belt Drive
How come belt drive isn't more popular?

When I first saw them I was convinced that they are the future and by 2020 most bikes will have belt drives and internal gearing. At least single speeds for sure. What happened?

Colonial transportation in space
Mars Colony and moonbase transportation
SpaceX is making the largest most powerful rocket in history for the purpose of starting a colony on mars, it is fully reusable and lands by itself. SpaceX has already tested the engines, the flight profile of the upper stage have done numerous hops and landing tests and have static fired and cryo tested the booster. They have tested the stacking of the rocket and they have already built the launch platform. The thermal protection system is tested and they are very close to an orbital test flight where they will test reentry as well as the ascent and landing flight profile of the booster. On top of that NASA has been developing the space launch system as a way to get crew to travel to and create a permanent base on the moon, they have contracted both SpaceX's Falcon Heavy and the Starship to work alongside SLS to set up a Lunar gateway station in a near-rectilinear halo orbit of the moon and to land crew and cargo to the surface. Because of these projects we are only a few years away from initiating habitation on foreign planetary bodies. Let's discuss how transportation in space will be set up and evolve as these installations grow into large settlements.

chip shortage news
The semiconductor shortage is putting America's car obsession into perspective for me.
We built everything around the car, then if there's a shortage of even one part for the cars, everyone's cost of transportation goes up. That's what happens when you build all your transportation infrastructure for just one mode of transport.
Dealers literally can't get more than 10 cars a month.
Meanwhile production lines are shutting down entirely, and Detroit workers are losing work.
Plus we could be using these semiconductors for something more important than cars anyway.

Hey /n/, country boi here, I have never rode my bike in a very busy place aside from state highways and the town intersection but I'm bored and want to go do something since there isn't much to do here beyond go innawoods and shit.

What is there to do in a city besides go to stupid restaurants and dick around if you don't know anyone? What do you look out for as far as dangers go? I already know to never relax. Thanks bros.

Stretch-wrap film is a reliable material, but is wasted A LOT in warehouses without Automatic/Semi-Automatic Wrappers.

Also, wrapping pallets in general is dumb.

Why wrapping a pallet, only to it be cut open in the inspection check, and wrapped YET AGAIN? Stretch is not inexpensive, it is actually one of the most costly materials in a warehouse operation, but I can't see a better option.

Surly is discontinuing their
LHT (non disc)
and Troll

what the fuck, lht i get but the others were literally the only interesting bikes they really sold. Why is the bike industry so fucking gay its so hard to find a non suspension corrected mtb or a more touring style plus/fat bike. I feel like people haven't even tried anything but disc brakes and just automatically have a panic attack at the sight of a rim brake. I really wanted to get a pugsley or an ecr but now both those options are gone, I really didn't want to have to drop 3 grand on a fucking jones bike but looks like the only option left. >650b fat bikes are a meme, all of salsa's shit so fucking ugly and has retarded geometry, everything else is so expensive it's not even worth considering.

I thought surly was supposted to be the punk rock frame makers, theyre doing this by making all these standardized bikes that are all morphing into the same thing then? Is there any other steel bike manufacturers like that or am I just looking into custom at that point.

Why is carbon a thing in bikes?
I get it, it's light and quite strong, but at the same time you have to treat it like a fucking egg. Hit something? Into the bin it goes. Overtorque a screw? Into the bin it goes. Undertorque a screw? Into the bin it goes after a XK miles. Oh you were unlucky and got carbon with a manufacturing defect you can't tell without ultrasound or some other faggotry? Enjoy your bike folding under you at a random moment.
I can get it with racing bikes actually used for racing by pro-racers, dedicated team of mechanics etc, but why the fuck every not-bottom-tier bike with a rigid fork, has to have that fork made out of carbon? Any damage to that that shit or too-much / too-little torque and you're fucked according to the interwebs. Steel is durable and flexible and aluminum is durable and light. Both are cheaper, why bother with carbon in consumer bikes? Also, the stiffness and bump absortion is bullshit, you get better results with lower tire pressure and tubeless really pays off and can be done for cheap.
So far this is what my tiny brain deduced. So either it's a shill's world and bike manufacturers fuck the customers selling shit that will not last and can be a potential hazard, or there is something I don't get and carbon is actually magic and all the internet "better not ride it cause a dentist cost more" are the actual shill trying to convince you to buy a new part.
Also carbon parts thread, I think.

In this thread we'll be talking about what we think is the final solution to the "stroad question". "Stroad" is a term coined in 2013 to explain those dangerous, multi-laned thoroughfares you encounter in nearly every city, town, and suburb in America. They're what happens when a street (a place where people interact with businesses and residences, and where wealth is produced) gets combined with a road (a high-speed route between productive places). They are enormously expensive to build and, ultimately, financially unproductive. They're also very dangerous.

Here's a quick video explaining why: [Embed]
Tell me what you think is the best way to eliminate these cumbersome, unseemly, and dangerous stroads from the streets of north america.

>you can't even walk properly in the shoes

The wide range cassette conspiracy
Let's talk about the elephant in the room: wide range cassettes are dangerous at high speeds.

Some say it's because long cage derailleurs don't have the leverage to maintain chain tension. Some say the inertia of the larger sprockets can't stop rotating when the pedals stop turning. Some even blame the user, saying you should never stop pedaling, or that pedaling backwards a quarter turn while freewheeling is not something that "the pros" do.

Regardless, what everyone can agree on is that when cassettes went beyond 11-28, that is when the problems began.

What can we do to educate consumers against the 11-32/11-34 menace? Screenshot this post while you still can, because THEY don't want you to talk about this. Just don't save it to iCloud, I don't think I need to explain why...

Roundabout for cyclists?
roundabout for cyclists not
Has this type of roundabout been tested before?
From the looks of it, it seems awful but they claim this is good bike infrastructure. Has any country built roundabouts like this?
The thing is that the cyclists have to yield to all cars. When they enter, they have to yield to cars exiting the circulation area, from the left, and then they have to yield to cars coming from the right to enter the roundabout.
Jus seems really bad, and makes it impossible to cross if there's heavy traffic. Could as well just remove the bike lines in the roundabouts and tell the cyclists to push their bikes on the sidewalks.
But maybe one of the bike friendly countries have actually tested this and it turned out to work better than expected?

If anything, comparing Texas Central Railway to California's fully government-run high speed rail project that still doesn't own all the land along its proposed route and has been in construction hell for 2 decades shows that private infrastructure is the only way America can build high speed rail.

There's gonna be 3 stations - in Dallas, Houston, and a central one near College Station that's probably gonna allow a new line later into Austin and San Antonio. This is just the start, once this route proves its profitability (which it obviously will on one of the shittiest highway commutes in the country) you'll see private HSR zooming ahead leaving Commiefornia in the dust.

How do we fix american suburbs?
I mean seriously. Just take a look at this, the houses are so crammed in together with such little land that they lose all benefit of being detached. The people who live in them are atomised beyond belief, don't know who their neighbors are, and basically use them as a dormitory for commuting to a pointless make-work job in the the city center. Owning a car is basically compulsory too because the nearest store is 3 miles away. Likewise kids have to be driven to school, usually in gas-guzzling SUVs because the parents think it's safer.
All of this is extremely inefficient in my book. All of these people could fit into one block in a mid-rise, mixed use area with small businesses on the ground floor where you can socialize and buy food etc. The kids could walk to school. Your commute could be 200 meters.
Just think about how good things could be - europe can do it right, why not america?

- earn high 5-figure USD salary in a Western country

- if Shimano, is at the very least XT / Ultegra

- any slight problem, take it to the bike shop

- sticks to regular maintenance schedule, doesn't care if bike shop rips them off because they can afford it

- at most they oil the chain and change a punctured tire

Regional airliners
I’m booking a trip and I’m stuck at a crossroads. Do I fly the airline I like but get stuck on a 3x3 737 or an airline I hate but get to ride on some comfy 2x2s?

Also, regional airliner thread. Post short hoppers.

Why do cities think bike lanes will encrouge people to ride bikes?
They literally make you deal with all the worst aspects of cars
>Riding feet away from cars going 45-60mph with drivers scrolling instagram
>Breathing in all their exhaust fumes and hearing the constant drone of their road noise
>Hot as balls from all the heat being reflected off the concrete/blacktop
The only real solution is dedicated roads for bikes to connect major parts of the cities and bike lanes being something you only use to go from the hubs to your destination.
