Buses should automated, with remote and in person backup control.

They drive fixed routes. So they just need to not hit anything on their route and make appropriate stops.

>Remote control
Imagine how many passengers can be killed at once if we place a EM obstruction device onto a trunk road
I suspect that a person of authority like a bus driver helps keep a certain level of decorum that is necessary when riding Transit. The behavior I see on trains compared to buses is night and day.

It’s almost as if the free market chooses against the cage and that cages are only popular because of the massive subsidies given to cagers by the government. Functionally forcing everyone to own a car and spending trillions of dollars to support that lifestyle is the worst form of government intervention and oppression since the British put taxes on tea.

Virginia Museum of Transportation is in trouble (sort of).

>URGENT Message from our President! “Roanoke City Council will take up an important matter on Tuesday, Jan. 22nd that may adversely affect the VMT. There is a proposal to move the Campbell Court Bus Station to the parking lot directly in front of the Museum. We are asking everyone to come out and support the Museum by opposing this move.” Your support would be greatly appreciated. The meeting will begin at 7PM at the City Council Chamber on the fourth floor of the Noel C. Taylor Municipal Building, located at 215 Church Avenue SW, Roanoke.”

They probably don't want homeless gathering outside the museum and scaring away visitors, or something.

Where the Hell are the people that visit the museum going to park if there's no parking? If there isn't convenient parking, visitation will plummet. Guaranteed.
The current bus terminal that the new proposed one would replace had 270 911 calls last year, 170 of which involved criminal acts.

Bus terminals are crime magnets.
Fuck off. Parking minimums like this are horseshit.
There were many speakers from the public that opposed the location (100% of them in fact), but all of the city council approved it.

Government officials that completely ignore their people need to be tarred and feathered.
Politicians need to be able to make decisions that defend the common man and not bow to the tyranny of the majority. Imagine if popular vote won the election and Hillary was in the White House right now.

A footballer likely died after the plane he was flying in went missing over the England Channel.

At what point do you stop respecting the pilots for their experience and expertise, and instead question things for the safety of your own life?
the minute they had to attempt the procedure 3 or 4 times you should have asked to leave the plane.
Why pilots couldn't take off 3-4 times?
I see no other reasons, beside shitty weather, shitty A/C, or shitty pilot.
In all three cases shit should be aborted...

Can't beat this livery on a Bulleid Pacific

Some of the world’s most prestigious airlines are on tenterhooks as the first flight of an aircraft that could change long-haul travel for decades looms ever closer.

Executives at Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Qatar Airways, among others, will have their eyes cast to the skies this spring when Boeing is expected to fly one of its new 777X planes for the first time.

The 777-9, the first of the X family to be developed, will have the biggest jet engines ever seen, attached to the longest wings of any aircraft ever made by the Seattle-based manufacturer.

The 777X has been said to be the result of the very best of the existing 777 plane, as favoured by the likes of British Airways et al, and the game-changing 787 Dreamliner, which has been praised as one of the most technologically advanced aircraft in history, garnishing plaudits from passengers on BA, Norwegian and Virgin Atlantic alike.

Nope, not even close. Delta is keeping a ton of 737s around and still has unfilled orders for them. They also have not announced an end of service date for their newer 763ERs, 717s, 764ERs, or 772ER/LRs.
Also their 757s.
IIRC, they also havent announced an end of service date for their MD-80s.
But they have explicitly said that A321s and 739s are replacing them. Not the case with the others mentioned.
Wonder what Delta's fleet would look like if the mergers hadn't happened. Think they would have had Airbus ac by now?

HSR is so comfy.
I live in Italy and I would rather take HSR than have to go through the pain in the ass that is air travel.
Just take the metro to the station, get there 10 minutes before the train leaves, board the train and just sit down with my laptop being able to work, watch a movie, and relax without having my knees jammed into the seat in front of me or having to waste an hour walking around the airport and going through security checks.
HSR is great so long as it doesn't come at the cost of totally letting your conventional trains get dilapidated and shitty. Also at the cost of losing uber-comfy overnight trains.

My car's engine nuked itself so it's back to public transport but I'm so glad that now we have these on almost every line. Quiet, problem free and spacious. Based Swiss engineers.

Finland has a habit of buying shitty French, Italian or Spanish rolling stock that doesn't work in the winter. Like they learned with the shitty Bombardier trams saving a little isn't worth it in the long run. Then they replace them with stuff that actually works, usually from countries that do have a winter of sorts. The tram problem was solved by producing the tram locally. Skoda liked them so much they bought the company and now they're going to be used in Germany and Czech Republic as well.

The trains were cheaper, Switzerland has snow.
Same old stuff.

>it's a "mixte"
it wouldn't be a mixte in a traditional sense as that would require the toptube to touch the rear axle. I do see why it's a mixte in that it has the double top tube. It's an uncommon frame design none the less.
>Why exactly shitty?
cottered cranks by their very nature are shit. cut off the cotter pin and throw the whole thing out. from the looks of it, the bearings are likely all rusted and shot anyway.
figure out how the bottom bracket shell is threaded, scrape off the rust with a wire brush, grease the threads, put a sealed BB in there and attach a real crank to it. the BB should be pretty cheap and the crank will depend on how much you want to spend.

use the links in the OP, they're good.

your frame-of-reference for lightness is not in the same ballpark as /n/. Walmart bikes don't factor in whatsoever.
>the bearings are likely all rusted and shot anyway.
I will check. But it spins without any effort.
I think I will leave it now "as is".
>figure out how the bottom bracket shell is threaded, scrape off the rust with a wire brush, grease the threads, put a sealed BB in there and attach a real crank to it.
So, I should remove stock stuff, install new axis (with square ends?), sealed bearings?
Which special tools I will need?
>use the links in the OP, they're good.
OK, I'll check.
btw, should I do something with steering bearings? Clean and grease, or replace it with something newer?
it's called a headset.
read Sheldon's page on them to see if yours needs service

Ok so lets get this out of the way: I know Im retarded.
Is it possible to cheaply and without huge effort to turn a 90s MTB into a fattish tire electric bike for drving on the beach?
22 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Yes, this is apparently a cheap option.

However you will have somewhat decreased power density due to the condition of the cells, so will need a larger batt for the same power.

You'll also have to cycle each cell individually and match together similar cells, and throw out bad ones.

Also the skills and know-how to build a battery will be necessary. You don't want to fuck it up.
I rebuilt a lawnmower engine just by watching some youtube vids with my uncles tool kit.
This does not look much harder.
I have access to a soldering iron , multi meters and even a silly scope.
Will have to buy or make a spot welder though.
Building a battery pack isn't the challenge really. It's designing a battery management and charging that won't cause a house fire or explode the cells, especially when using cells of different capacities, ages, and slightly off voltages.
Not him, but I assume that's not a big challenge either, you just have to go by the weakest link in the chain.
Dont they sell chargers that have all that stuff in them already?
