Amsterdam Central Station
I travel to Amsterdam each day by train for work.
I feel such embarresment when I see tourist lost and trying to find the right train to Schiphol Airport.
The Dutch Railways should pick up on these signals and improve the station and platforms.

My train departs across from the one that goes to Schiphol airport.
I tend to stay at the station 3-4 hours each day after work, pointing tourists in the right direction.
Till I'm too tired and hungry and I go home.

At home I'm too tired to cook and I eat a bowl of yohurt with fruit and go straight to bed.

Velo PEV ebike
How do we make the roads safer for lightweight PEVs, velos and ebikes?

I was thinking instead of those pesky traffic cameras we could install motion activated speed bumps. Just a series of blocks that normally sit flush with the road but raise up whenever someone does more than 5 or 8mph over the speed limit.

Since most car trips are 11 miles or less it doesnt make sense to use a 4,000 pound vehicle to move a single human from A to B and back.

Let's settle this once and for all
For years I never felt the need to have discs, though I hated Vs (cantis were superior in every way). But since I ride what I ride (garbel), I have them now. Pros:
>they can stop you real quick even at high speed
>they don't damage your rim (only a plus if you fell for the carbon meme)
>less likely to get wet and less effective in damp conditions
This is it. Cons:
>supposedly heavier, if you care about that
>need to be bedded in properly and nobody knows how to do it
>braking lightly over longer stints will glass them, so forget about going down a steep hill with a slightly pulled lever to maintain speed
>fucking expensive!
>pad prices are insane
>no-name pads are cheaper and better than official branded pads
>you need specific pads for the brakes you have
>hydros need bleeding every now and then and it's not something the average rider can do
>bleeding kits cost a lot
>unless you have thru-axles, you have to align the brakes each time you take your wheels off or they rub
>they will squeak eventually and they get dirty
>harder to clean
>resin pads are shit, get glassed by looking at them wrong and soak up grease particles like a vacuum cleaner
>don't touch the discs, ever!
>centerlock vs 6-screw, cause muh proprietary patents
And this is from a dude who actually kinda likes them, though only cause they are an upgrade from Vs. So why are they on every bike now? Well apparently not on everyone, rim brakes are still there in 2022, but guess what, customers prefer discs and it's not viable to mass produce rim brakes, cause bikes with those don't sell. And at this point I don't even think it's marketing. People generally believe, that since hydro discs are so good on cars, they must be as good on bikes.Now here's the big question, for me discs vs rims are basically the same topic as LCD vs CRT. But you know what? LCDs at least got cheap. So, since most customers want discs, and almost all bikes come with them, why the price?

My chinesium, nth hand, hand me down bike broke, again, so I want to replace it with a folding bike since I commute by train everyday; I also do evening deliveries on my bike (yes I'm poor) so the daily km tally is quite high. For that reason I want to avoid the cheapest, crappiest bikes to be found on Amazon and I'm willing to spend (a little) extra for a bike that somewhat reliable.

I live in Euroland. All I know about folding bikes is that Decathlon sells a few models and while they're decent quality for the price I should avoid the cheapest one. Anyone familiar with Decathlon Tilt 500 or 900 models? Any reason to prefer one over the other?

Two people were critically hurt and another 13 injured when a pub on wheels overturned in midtown Atlanta, according to reports.

The Saturday evening incident unfolded when the “pedal pub” — a large vehicle which can carry up to 15 passengers, who often pedal while drinking booze — tried to negotiate a turn and flipped over, 11Alive reported.A fire official told one Fox5 Atlanta Reporter two people were critically injured, while three others were seriously hurt and 10 suffered minor injuries.

Witnesses leapt into action to help right the overturned pedal pub and help the victims, one person told Fox5 Atlanta.

“The public, I was so impressed, just intervened so quickly,” the woman said.

Building a touring bike only needs 5 gears
Cadence. Speed.
90 rpm at 5km/h
90 rpm at 10km/h
90 rpm at 15km/h
90 rpm at 20km/h
90 rpm at 25km/h

I've been thinking about gear ratios and this seems the minimal amount of gears on could get by with.

It will allow me to tackle hard climbs and headwinds at a healthy cadence.

And I rarely exceed 25 km/h on a touring rig with 4 loaded panniers and two top loads on the flats. Heavy speeds with heavy loads are dangerous as well plus I just coast downhill. I find low gearing is much more important to save the knees, big gears are redundant for me.

Now what are the gear combinations I need to achieve this?

The plague of the modern bike industry can be accurately traced back to its origin: Pro level racing. This idea that whichever roided lanklet goes le fastest on their 30k plastic specialty bike somehow translates accurately to the real world, when in fact the two have nothing in common.
Instead of sucking the BIG BIKE HOMO DICK and throwing all your shekels down the drain for the latest chinese carbon frame with a limited lifespan and whatever other big buck fad part the marketing team has cooked up for this year, we should look elsewhere for inspiration. Somewhere real, with real world applications.

Enter the Swiss MO-93, or Militärrad 93. Here we have an all steel beast that's been refined since WW2, and has never failed the extreme real-world trials of the military. Derailleur guard, racks, dynamo headlight, trailer, hydraulic rim brakes, ceramic-coated rims, frame bags, spring saddle, fenders and all for just 25 kilograms! Everything you could ever want, everything that was stolen from us, everything that should come as standard equipment at a reasonable price. If it were like this we could have our dutchbike utopia too, but alas spandexfags and consoomers have ruined everything. If it's good enough for the Dutch, and good enough for the Nips, and most importantly good enough for the military, it's good enough for you.

>TFW living in a place with decaying rail infrastructure that will never ever be developed because our shitty fucking north american construction industry can't even repair already built tracks and put simple diesel trains on them for less than 600 million dollars while low speed limit highways connect communities that are growing exponentially and bus routes don't even have express busses
seriously how the fuck can tiny cities in european countries afford to build high quality electrified LRT so easily?

Baby's first train ride
I'm taking an Amtrak from upstate NY to Chicago in a few weeks. Haven't been on a train since I was super little and living in Europe, so I have no point of reference for what to expect from this mode of American tra/n/sportation... Are there any random things that I should pack/prepare for that might not be as apparent to train travel newfags? I'll probably be riding coach.

/n/ confessions
Oh fellow autists of /n/, confess your sins to me and I shall free you of your pain.

I'll begin:
>I haven't payed for public transport in about two years now
I ride the train to and from uni each weekday and the line I run on does not have any gates or ticket inspectors. As a student the monthly pass is quite the chunk of my monthly income so it's not like I would pay anyway.

What nasty /n/ related things have you been up to?

Velomobile Supremacy
Has anyone ever used one of these? They seems like the perfect balance between car and bike. They're compact, aerodynamic, have cover from the elements, and now there are some with electric assistance making it feasible to go +30mph. What's keeping them so niche? Are there any downsides because the hefty price tags?

It’s funny that retards claim high-speed rail wouldn’t work in America when we now have private airlines replacing regional flights with fucking BUSSES.

Please help me, my /n/igguhs.I'm a Brazilian flag moving to Ottawa in a month.

I want to live car-free there and I want to cycle through winter. I understand that Ottawa has one of the worst winters in a big city.

What do I need to do to be able to cycle when it's snowing? Does it make sense for me to buy a Fuji Touring Disc and swap the tyres for winter, studded tires when it starts to snow? Do I also need to install mittens on the handlebars?

Any Canadians, Americans, Finnish, Russian, Norwegian, Swedish, Icelanders, Greenlanders, Scottish or some other people that could share some experiences?

You guys are literally the people I trust the most for actual, relevant opinions on what's legit reasonable to do while cycling

Who /longboard/ here
It’s a pretty interesting form of urban transportation. I just use it for trips where I’m going a few blocks but it really makes running errands faster.

ITT /n/ designs a feet-forward bicycle
There are no rules in FF bicycle design so there's a lot of areas for possible improvement. How would you design a feet forward that has the possibility of becoming mainstream?

Beeching Axe
How true is it that the big issue with Beeching's cuts was the excessive focus on closing down lines, especially ones with relatively limited usage, to cut costs as opposed to reforming British Rail's bureaucracy and most importantly modernizing the network and replacing the huge amounts of manpower-intensive equipment still left over from the victorian era like much of the signaling, introducing rail buses and motor coaches for smaller stations, and ending the permanent staffing of many smaller stations?

Why does the green arrow come on before the green light at some intersections, but after the green light at others? Why do some lights have the green, but others do not? What is the criteria for an intersection to have a light over a stop sign? How do they choose how long the lights should be? Why do the walk signs come on before the green sometimes? Why does the green stay on after the walk timer has ended?
