Should bicycles be prohibited from roads, where they obstruct and interfere with important vehicle traffic?
It would make more sense to limit cyclists to riding on unused sidewalks. How long is your commute to work? Anyone cruisers here? Sailing and motor included. Visit any cool places?

This is Varig. It used to be Brazil's flagship and one of the better airlines worldwide.

hey unracers, when are you going to stop making excuses and admit that you're slow? nobody thinks you're cool for refusing the SRAM neuralink package. you're just fat Look at this pathetic excuse for public transit, amiright? It doesn't even go between peoples houses. Know why? Because it's run by the Las Vegas casinos. It was never meant for the public good. It's a disney world esque attraction meant to lure people in with its futuristic allure and the promise of tomorrow, only to keep you captive on the vegas strip, only able to access where private businesses want you to go. It's built to sell you an idealized future that will never come, which is why it keeps cropping up in schemes to deliver the undeliverable, and keep the money it makes off your exploited idealism.
And that's why Elon Musk's Las Vegas Loop is bad. Pic unrelated Why are dirigibles not a thing anymore for common travel? Why aren't there female players of flight simulators (either civil or combat)? What prevents them? Why are Yachts so common among the super rich, but neither airships, nor gigantic flying boats are even a thing nowadays?
I was watching some videos on youtube about superyachts a few months ago and the superyacht lifestyle just sounds pretty dull. They all look alike and only differ in size really. Helipads are nothing out of the ordinary but that's it really.
I would at least want it to be a seaplane tender for like a rotax powered SeaRey and then I thought it would be even cooler to have a giant flying boat. Think Sprouse Goose but with modern materials, it would be insanely expensive, but from what I can tell, that's kind of the point.
And as for airships, I'm not the biggest fan but I figured there'd have to be at least some rich assholes who want an airship that dwarves basically any man made vehicle. Again with the technology and materials of today, why doesn't this stuff exist apart from like warbirds? What can we learn from these cities? What did they do right? >Cheap
>No Permit Needed
Why haven't you taken the Paramotor Pill and take to the skies?

Do you find them to be aesthetically pleasing or an eyesore?

Are they any fun to explore, or is there anything they can be used for beyond breakwater? Old:
Anything about public transport in Switzerland, Austria and Germany is fair game. ITT: Comfy street running why does munich have the best public transportation network in the world? The railroads need to be nationalized. So they can electrified and expand passenger services. Well the covid virus seems to have not only killed the collectible bike market, it seems to have made just go away completely.
I have several places I check every day for bikes that fit this category and not one has popped up in months.
I cant even evaluate prices because nothing is being listed.
What the hell ?

Apologies for the terrible description of the problem but I know nothing about electric motors.
I know the issue isn't with any of the external mechanical stuff, I've entirely detached the wheel and it still does the same thing. I got hit by a bike about a year ago and had to re-adjust the brakes, re-attach the front wheel, bend the frame holding it back into place, etc. but it had been working fine since then until recently so I don't think that's the issue. Anyone know what the problem might be? Is it something repairable if I can get the wheel hub open or am I better off just getting a replacement? Where the FUCK are all the (11v) cassettes.

From what I can tell, the motorbikes of 1900 - 1920 were just bicycles with motors added, not much different from the mopeds of today. Im planning some fucking long ride in 15 days , something like 400km . Im making a list of shit to carry with me
whats some details to consider and what should i take with me besides the bike repair kit. I just started learning to fly on a Cessna 152 a few weeks ago and I was wondering if anyone had any advice with regards to flying and the C-152 in general?
t.newfag Shhhh mods are asleep, post japanese trains I'm buying one of these and you fags can't stop me Is your city building more rail lines?
Yes, my region is making multiple new lines. A 6km subway and a 16km elevated line for a total of around $6 billion if public transportation is so good, why do so many public transportation riders an hero? Can you recommend me hardtail bike which to convert to rear hub motor ebike? Something 700 dollars max new.
Currently I'm thinking about to get one of these used: Cube AIM/Analog models, trek marlin 5, White xc 290, Ghost kato. Any experiences with those or do you have anything else to recommend?
Ghost: https://www.ghost-bikes.com/en/bikes/hardtail/bike/kato-universal-29-2021 With most scooters I see being chinkshit with design flaws like the handlebar stem lock breaking I was considering if I should get one of these. I know they've never updated them in comparison to modern scooters but they're so simple and tough they don't really have many ways to break. Battery upgrade is probably the first thing I would do honestly. So what really happened to it? Say you were to go shopping with one of these.
Where on earth would you leave it while you're inside the store without having someone steal it? Anyone have experience fixing old mopeds who can help me out?
I always wanted a moped and a guy not too far from here is selling pic.
He's pretty sure the engine is fine but it doesnt' start so he assumes there's something wrong with the ignition. Other than that it's just some minor things that need fixing, mostly cosmetics and he has all the parts that's needed to make it run.
I have no experience working on these things and he wants $1200 for it Hey /n/, submit your fan maps itt.
There’s not a better game for your love of subway maps. Can someone explain how America is going to build high speed rail when half of the country is mountains and trains can’t go up a 1% or greater grade? The future of delivery vehicles is prettymuch entirely electric. Now that we have a railfan President...
Do we think we’ll see public transit expansion funded by the Feds? I know things like the NHSL spur to King of Prussia is banking on a Biden Presidency.
Do you think he’ll be good for excursions? Bennet Levin seemed to think that he would extend Federal Insurance used to cover Amtrak to excursions, and that he’d repeal Amtrak’s moratorium. Would it have been ki/n/o?
yeah, I'm thinking based. If only he hadn't been a heavy smoker all his life, maybe he would have been able to see it through instead of the abortion of what EPCOT means now. How do we get people to feel better while riding in public transit? They took this from you... Why are touring bikes without kickstands a thing?
Yeah mate, gotta save half a nanogram on this 100 lbs bike designed to carry heavy loads on! Is it true eastern european countries have better bus systems than western euros New York City's landmark commission today discussed moving MSG and building a new one along with a new Penn Station.

https://forum.newyorkyimby.com/t/new-york-penn-station/1009/266 Ahem... Hello gentlemen riders and the sundry sophisticates of /n/, perhaps we should discuss the proper and mature side of cycling, unracing. To all those that say no to consumerist frivolity and yes to beauty, utility, humility, and craftsmanship. We welcome all who see through the lies of the corporate disposable plastic racer agenda and choose to just ride on fine steel velocipedes Why are trams so cool, they're not even fast or big. I love seeing one of these bad boys running along some trees and mid rises I like my Brompton but I feel like such a colossal dickhead every time I use it. Have any of you had this experience? It's time for new tires. Thinking about changing wheels. What do yall think and which ones yall like Driving a car is so difficult, you have to constantly pay attention. Even crosswind landing is much easier than parallel parking. A lot of old road bikes I'm looking at have an extra tube next to the seat tube. What is it and what does it do? There should be PSAs telling people how to drive in traffic.
Would save billions. How do we get people back on transit? Ha ha, this is so crazy it just might work! shifting with this

You go, little angle man They're just incredible to look at. Smooth uninterrupted asphalt with clear and sharp white markings on the road. No oil spills or stains to be seen. There aren't many manholes or access points and those that are there blend into the streetscape perfectly. Everything feels freshly built when in reality it's probably been there for years. Oil companies should be held liable for climate change, since they’ve known what they were doing for several decades.
https://archive.is/aT12S Buttigieg has called for dismantling urban freeways and building EV charging stations around our cities.
While I was extremely skeptical at first, I have some hope for him now that he's talking about bringing down urban freeways.
Still have to wait and see what he does about transit. how do major bike manufacturers get away with charging upwards of 5k for bikes made in china?
like literally how is a piece of shit weak carbon bike worth 5k let alone 10-20k... I'm not saying he was right about everything but he should be stickied. Like /g/ has the bird sex guy.
Why isn't there a sticky and why isn't it sheldon brown? The fact is this is now the bikes board. All other transportation exists to make cycling more fun and more convenient.

I bought these Polish army puma gloves for £5 and they're great on a 2-3 degrees C day, but at night when it gets to 0-1 with the windchill, they're only comfy for 30 minutes before my fingertips start getting cold.
I looked at specialist winter cycling gloves but they look fairly thin and lacking in insulation plus they're pricey as fuck. I'm finna to just get some skiing gloves (as the basketball Americans say). Hi Friends,

It's still a death trap and they know it. You will not
-Stare at the engines if there's an air stair (look straight ahead and look bored and annoyed that there's someone in front of you)
-Look at or touch the skin of the aircraft as you pass through the door
-Glance longingly at the cockpit as you walk past (you terrorist, only terrorists are interested in that stuff up there)
-Read the safety card for any reason (omg imagine the germs)
Most importantly: under no circumstances are you to look out the window, what are you a child? Having a small mirror on the traffic side of your bike improves quality of life by 100%.
I can never go back. Looking for an ebike that’s basically a street legal moped. The S2 looks sick.
Any other suggestions? Is it better to ride in a lower gear with a higher cadence or a taller gear with a lower cadence? I have a 2x11 bike and I never bothered shifting the front to the lower gear; I just permanently kept it in the taller gear of the two because I felt like I could access all the usable power I needed from the 11 gears in the back (unless I’m climbing a massive hill). Is there any way to keep my toes from freezing off, preferably some kind of hack with stuff around the house? I’ve already duct taped around the toe box of my shoes which helped a little but they still get cold after about 20 minutes. Also, any other tips for riding in the cold are welcome here. Cycling is the best thing in the world and I want to thank all the bros here for your advice.
I started riding flat roads during the shutdown and gradually got more serious. Now I look for progressively bigger hills and can really experience that initial joy of road cycling all over again. Seriously my mind and body would be atrophied without such a glorious sport to do. I encourage all Americans (especially in the Sunbelt) to give it a try.
The best part with climbing hills is you can get a serious workout in quickly. What's your favorite defunct airline? Why did it disappear?
For me it's Ansett. They went bankrupt back in September 2001, though they stuck around until 2002 as an A320-only low cost carrier in the hopes of finding a buyer.
Their bankruptcy had a few causes
>Deregulation of the Australian airline market put increased pressure on their revenues
>Most of their major investments (including a part share in the now-defunct America West airlines) performed poorly
>Their 767 fleet was aging and regularly had maintenance issues, culminating in their 767 fleet being grounded in Christmas 2000 and their entire fleet being grounded in Easter 2001, which was an expensive loss.
>Air New Zealand bought them out and merged with them in early 2000. ANZ didn't really have the capital available for their own modernization needs, let alone those of Ansett, so the result was that both companies were severely undercapitalised. (ANZ would go bankrupt around the same time as Ansett and had to be renationalised)
>Air New Zealand's attempts to reduce the operating costs of Ansett had detrimental effects on service quality. Their aim was to keep the same revenue while getting costs down, since that was somewhat successful for Air New Zealand, but in Ansett it had the effect of driving away customers who wanted premium service
>They spent a large amount of money to become the official sponsors of the Sydney 2000 Olympics, but didn't see much return on it since Qantas had a much stronger brand image internationally as Australia's airline, and combined with some guerilla marketing by Qantas a large number of people just assumed that Qantas was the official sponsor anyway.
After Singapore Airlines and Qantas pulled back from buying Ansett Mk.1 when it was in administration, there were plans to keep it flying in a smaller form put forward by the Tesna Consortium, but since the government didn't offer them any support they pulled back and Ansett Mk. 2's last flight landed on March 4th 2002. Ok guys, I'm looking for some advice. I know that there is a lot of seafarers on this board, so tell me, it's even fucking worth to finish a college in order to get OOW ticket?
I heard that situation on a market is pretty harsh right now, and I don't want to pay a shitload of money just to end as an OS. I'm a p(or)lack if that matters, so IDK if the situation in Europe is also that bad. What was the NYC–DC route called before Amtrak?
Was it still the "Northeast Corridor" or did it have another name?
