maybe this is the most basic dumb fuck take on it but wouldnt the plane eventually take off no matter what? like the engines give you say 1000 go forwards points and does so by pushing air out the back so the conveyor needs to put out 1000 go backwards points through a wheel thats happy to spin. like how does the conveyor transmit its force of 1000 go backwards points to the plane?

Thinking of getting a 29" Bmx bike

already have a 24 inch redline, just want something different.

Something like this Haro Group 1 RS2 looks pretty good in my opinion.

the other option is a GT street performer 29" , but i think the frame is ugly.

You are right, what he has now when he adds walls will probably be enough to prevent swinging sideways.

>For example, check out that back top black with the beam centered over at ~3' span between studs.

you mean the middle roof beam/joist position and how it stands in the middle of vertical beams? Yep.

if he adds another roof joist and reorients them properly it should hold...right?

Can we have a thread for completely WTF aircraft designs? Bonus for obscure design proposals that never left the drawing board.

Pic related. This was an actual serious pitch by Lockheed in the 80's. I don't know how ground crew would be expected to fit this boi through the hangar door. I guess it could have doubled as Godzilla's cockring.

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.

The most popular cycling event in my area is the annual Starlight Spectacular (last year was the 25th anniversary) which is a big nighttime ride held during the summer to raise funds for the local trails and open space group. It's really fun, there's food at the start and the finish, and the mass start is amazing since there are thousands of people there on bikes, some with fancy light displays or even pulling floats. Lots of people bring their kids and just cruise the short distance loop, but there's no rule that says you can't race around the course that goes through the downtown area and then back into a big park which is full of rolling hills and tight turns that are fun to ride during the daytime, but really exciting to ride at night since there are almost no streetlights in that section.

In Portland it's the Bridge Pedal. Riders who go on a variety of routes that cross some or (almost) all of Portland's bridges. The best part is that they shut down I-405 and part of I-5. Ridership has been down over the past few years, though. I think that it peaked at around 20k a few years ago when it was truly done across all bridges, but last year was less than 10k.

There's also the World Naked Bike Ride but that always winds up being such a clusterfuck that people just stand/walk next to their bikes for most of it. Not what I'd call a cycling event. And the smell is horrifying.

Even truckers won't ever be replaced with automation fully, at least ever to the point of there being nobody in the cabin. There's a lot more that they do than just sit behind a wheel. What happens when the truck breaks down? What happens when the road's shit or unmarked? Automation works great in sterile environs like a warehouse, but when you get to the real world you need live decision making.

What keeps happening? Are you sideloaded? Inconsistent landing attitude? Problems determining height above the runway? There are so many little issues that can mess up a landing, you need to provide more detail of the problem.
