Bike Tour of Japan
MVIMG_20190919_064233
Hello, /n/.
I'm not really from this board, but you guys helped me out the most and seem more interested in this subject than /trv/ (they don't seem to see touring as a valid form of travel). If anyone thinks I should move this to /trv/ or cross post just let me know and I'll comply.

Finished the tour in October. Lasted 30 days. Left from the U.S. and flew to Chitose in Hokkaido. Rode down to Osaka. This was not my first tour, but it was my girlfriends. That was the greatest challenge of the tour.

If anyone has any logistical, gearing, or personal questions feel free to ask. I want to help anyone who might be interested in starting their own tour.

/ARG/ Australian Rail (and other transport) General

Surely there's enough of us around we can have a general?

Here's some talking points
- Sydney Metro
- Melbourne Metro
- Cross-river rail
- There are NO regional trains in South Australia and The Overland will probably die at the end of the year, thanks to constant neglect by successive SA governments
- Why the Melbourne B2 is the best tram in Australia and nothing will ever surpass it

It's an extensive series of underground pedestrian tunnels and other areas. It links together several subway stations, two commuter rail stations, the city's convention center plus a shopping mall and several office buildings. This time-lapse video covers a good portion of it. Over a mile was walked underground.

You should use these. There is absolutely no reason not to. If you reject these because they are not ''cool'', you are a tosser.

Also, of all bikes, mountainbikes are the one who needs FENDERS the most. Think about it. It's time we put this trend in motion. Do you see dirt bikers riding without fenders? Of course not !

there are special fenders that prevent this but still provide fender action.

Your attention please!

Size your frame correctly. Stop using 30mm setback seatposts. It looks dumb. It looks like you bought the wrong size bike. Same goes for you dorks riding 130mm stems. Cut that shit out. You look like you stole a child's bicycle and slapped on some accessories.

>but I like the way it rides
No, you are objectively wrong and you've just trained yourself to like something bad. An imaginary line drawn between the tips of your bars should touch the leading edge of your headtube and the center of your saddle should be directly in line with your seat tube.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

Some junkies broke into my condo underground parking, pried open the bike cage lock and stole a bunch of bikes including mine. Living in a 21st century city that enables junkies and criminals to thrive is fucking exhausting. It was a sweet bike too. 8 speed Alfine Internal Hub and nice disc brakes with a carbon fork. I only paid $250 for it, but it was over a grand new. Anyone else got any bike theft stories to tell?

Death of the LBS in Western hemisphere and how bike mechanics to cope.
bikeshop-hoogland-interieur-lowres-1002
Are you noticing this trend.

The Dealer-LBS are dieing out and going out of business. People are not buying expensive dealer bikes anymore but ordering directly online. The ''LBS'' industry is dieing.

However, the obscure fix-your-bike ''shops'' that aren't dealers, but fix your bike for cheap and sell cheap used bikes, won't die out. But there's no real place for tradesmen in these shops most of them are populated by rehabs and supported by the government programs who can only do basic stuff.

The large retailers are taking over and the only way for the intelligent bike-mechanic to survive is to become a specialist mechanic at one of these larger companies. The bike mechanic trade will enter a higher level and be more required from him in terms of trade knowledge, and stigma of this trade only being for idiots will disappear since these idiots won't be able to get a job.

The other alternative for the bike mechanic is to accept being poor forever and just trying to get by fixing shit. Because selling is dead and we all know current lbs can't survive on fixing, but the lonesome poor bike mechanic who works in a shed might.

So the middle ground for the bike mechanic is going to disappear. You are either going to be a poor ass bike mechanic fixing crap all day or you are going to be a specialist bike mechanic at giant assembling and repairing e-bikes and doing the higher end of the scale of bike work.

> I think public transport is painful. It sucks. Why do you want to get on something with a lot of other people, that doesn't leave where you want it to leave, doesn't start where you want it to start, doesn't end where you want it to end? And it doesn't go all the time. ... It's a pain in the ass. That's why everyone doesn't like it. And there's like a bunch of random strangers, one of who might be a serial killer, OK, great. And so that's why people like individualized transport, that goes where you want, when you want. - Elon Musk

Does cold weather make freewheels not work?
>biking to work yesterday and today
>yesterday was around 0 F
>today was like -8 or -10 F
>freewheel keeps giving out; as in, the internal ratcheting mechanism isn't engaging so I spin my cranks and it doesn't spin the wheel
>yesterday was doing it a bit, today was even worse, every time I come to a stop it won't engage and it takes a while to engage, but once I get going then it's fine til I stop again
>way home today was a bit warmer (like 8 above) and it still did it a little bit but not too much; it was much worse on the way to work when it was quite a bit colder
I am thinking maybe the subzero weather froze the internals of my freewheel and/or the lube in it. Is this a correct analysis?
I know old freewheels sometimes wear out and have this same issue (regardless of temperature), but my freewheel is only a year old and has maybe 2,000 km on it. It shouldn't be worn out this fast, and it's just been happening these really cold days.
Is it normal for freewheels to give out like this in subzero? Should I replace my freewheel, or oil the internals, or just ride one of my other bikes (cassette) on the really cold days and accept that freewheels don't work in subzero weather?

Exposed bicycle chains are absolutely cringeworthy and should only be reserved for racers. Your chain is a pretty much an open bearing and should NOT be exposed to the elements, it should be encased in an oil-bath, unless you ride in a super clean environment. Normal people should not use exposed chains because they don't clean their chain like they should, even most amateur racers don't clean their chain as they should, thus drastically reducing efficiency and the lifespan of the whole drivetrain, increasing the costs of maintenance !! Sand and grid gets stuck into the links even after a small ride !

If you want to ride without a chaincase you MUST use a belt-drive. Other wise you are falling for a ploy to make you pay more.

What brand/model is this vintage road bike?
bici 3
Hi!

I bought this road bike for 30 bucks. I was told that it was a vintage Torrot, but I didn't care about the brand or model because I recently moved out and don't have a car so I needed a way to commute. Now I want to restore it, but I'm not sure what brad it is or how should it look like. I know the previous owner tried to customize it, so I want to keep the original essence. I'm almost sure its a Torrot Road Racer given the way it looks the frame but I wouldn't take a bullet for it, so I'm asking for help

I recognized this components, I dont know if it helps that much:

- Shimano 105 Biopace crankset
- Shimano BR-6208 Brakes
- Shimano FD 6207
- Shimano RD-6207
- Sakae SR Custom Modolo Anatomic Bend
- Brakes Exage Motion BR-A250 / BL-A25

Why is the US and India wasting so much time with Hyperloop?

Autistic Rail Club just put out a new video on Hypeloop discussing its failings and comparing it to vaporware.
https://youtu.be/w5GIUbykDGk
Answered some good points but what I don't understand is why the US and India are hyping this up so much? Is it because their own infrastructure is so shit tier, they think it's just better to skip steps up to non-existent meme transportation? Is it the Elon effect? Video states that Elon paid Rahm Emmanuel like $50K USD to support Chicago O'Hare loop. Or are their governments really banana republic tier? I'd guess a mix of all of the above but that's all my opinion is, a guess. Any retard knows evacuated tube technology is a failure.

Is there a single city in this entire fucking country that isn't a cager hellscape? The only places in the entire country that aren't pure eye cancer are either single neighborhoods built before 1900 surrounded by 100km of shitty suburbs or giant cities where a 900sqft house is $2,000,000 plus tip.

I fucking hate this country. I'm almost considering buying 50 acres of land for $50,000 in bumfuck nowhere just so I can avoid looking at an entire horizon of copy-pasted mcmansions. I'd need a car but at least it would be the only car around.

Where the heck do people buy cycling gear? I’ve gone to 5 different cycling shops in my area and they are all just full of bikes with no accessories.

I want to try to start riding in the winter again (used to for school) but I actually have money now and can get some actual bike pants; in sick of putting holes in my jeans. But the measly selection in stores is always entirely stitched in buttpadding which I don’t want. I have never worn any fancy bike gear other than my jersey.

I can’t figure out what gear I need to stay warm but not overheat without trying it on first so I don’t know where to look. My rides will be anywhere from like 30 to 50, wet lots of the time, and it’s rather short 2 miles to work.

Can anyone help me figure out what gear I should get? I havnt biked since early August.

Why can't the U.S. have a similar rail system to Japan in terms of quality and extension? Is it the population density?

84912-largest_1_Mavic_freehub_off
We can all agree on who makes the worst freehubs and that is Mavic of course. But who makes the best? I used to look up to Chris King but Bikesnob was bitching about them recently. I've never owned any CK so I can't say. Is Hambini right? Is Shimano really the best? That would be weird.

Quadruple tracks and pedestrians
whyyesidosaveimagesfromwikimediacommons
Are at-grade crossings of quadruple tracks feasible?
I was thinking about how big highways divide communities by making being a pedestrian harder. I'm wondering about whether an area could have both quadruple-tracking and still be pedestrian-friendly.

>It is projected that the first section, between San Francisco and Los Angeles, will be operating in 2020.
This is from page 81 of the 2009 edition of the SPV Railroad Atlas of California & Nevada. How did government officials get the dates so wrong? And why are shills trying to memory-hole this info and gaslight everyone about the true history of the project and the promises made about costs and timelines back when CA-HSR was first put to a vote? This map refutes the misinformation being spread on this board today.

Grant-Petersen-614x640
Grant here. I heard you all were saying my bikes are heavy, that my bikes need disc brakes, that my upright bars make you slow and wobbly.
Well, guess what? We listened to you. Here at Riverdell, we make bikes. Bikes for people. Practical bikes that don't cost an arm and a leg, but are high quality and last a lifetime
Well, I was wrong. Disc does make sense. Disc allows you to build wheels that will never have their brake tracks wear down and explode like a brittle piece of carbon. And disc allows you to run big, fat, extremely fast rolling panaracer tires without worrying about brake clearance, especially with fenders.
So, as of today, rivendell industries is acquiring Crust bikes and UltraRomance brand. Together we hope to consolidate the unracer field of brands to deliver you, the customer, an unrivaled cycling product.
The crust towel rack bar is now called the peregrine, a very large bird. Larger than an albatross, even.
Also the crust evasion is back, with lugs, and a beautiful yellow/brown paint job. The new model will be christened Mr Boopydoopy, after a famous pie eating contestant from Wisconsin world's fair in 1910. We had to pay his family $2,000,000 dollars for rights to the name but I think it was a worthwhile investment.
Now some may be shocked by our move to disc brakes, but listen, it doesn't have to be expensive. The Shimano altus disc line is actually superior to most disc products, when properly set up with twine and non-aero brake levers. Trust me, it can stop on a buffalo nickel coming down the steepest of hilly willys.
