Recently went on a trip to London and frequently used the Underground. You Americans probably think it's insanely cool but I can tell you that it was cramped (I'm 6ft 3 inches tall), hot and crowded. And I got haggled by a cocaine user outside Victoria station to donate cash that was being held on family at the shop.

Daily reminder building railroads to all villages that have under 500 inhabitants is in fact not unrealistic. The French had such lines in the middle of the mountains in the early 20th century.

Daily reminder cagers started ruining everything starting in the 1920's when Fascists, and later, Nazis, built highways because le epin Keynesianism mandated that tons of asphalt be layered everywhere to create jobs.

The Karlsruhe model of tram-trains could fill this role
A large regional town, like Karslruhe, would have a tram network on its streets - this gets connected to the mainline railway on which regional and interurban trains operate on and uses the railways to go to other surrounding towns providing much more frequent services than waiting for the intercity trains to make a stop

Shut up faggot.

Building a mainline main line is not exactly building more branches and spurs to every town and village.
>>
>>1262955
Karlsruhe's interurbans are working too well at this point. They built an inner-city tram tunnel in recent years. Not to make room for cars on the surface, but to spread trams out evenly on both the tunnel and the surface street. The demand is enormous.
>>
>>1262955
Karlsruhe is several orders of magnitude above a small town in terms of population though. For smaller places, I don't think building 1 435 mm tracks in the middle of the town is a great idea.

Because the OP of the previous one was a fag.

Some news: Belgrade goes full retard and wants to follow Moscow in a decision to dismantle the system and replace it with battery buses.
Just a friendly reminder that the Moscow mayor's plan is a complete disaster so far. The battery buses cannot run such long services, are unreliable and during winter they have to run diesel heaters which produce as many emissions as diesel engines. So much for ecology.

Go on Belgrade corrupt politicians, suck that russian schlong!

Well it turns out Performance was actually operating at a loss too anyways.

Actually one of the problems is the middlemen like QBP suck at negotiating prices and they want a big cut, so wholesale tends to be just as much as any of the UK shops retail.

>>1263232
The US bike industry is not really that large, at about $6 billion, and is dominated by three companies. The retail side of it is a mess. Brick & mortar stores are dropping like flies, while making decent margin with online sales is difficult. The most recent numbers I found for Wiggle show a less than 1% gross profit before adjusting for losses incurred by buying CRC, which is a razor fucking thin margin. The industry tried to move to a quasi-dealership model, but that didn't work out well for the stores. Most likely, brick and mortar retail is going to more or less die out, replaced by direct sales, demo days, Amazon, and some mix of mobile and stationary repair shops.

On one of my local bike blogs, a reader pointed out that you can form a buyer co-op where you claim to be a small LBS based out of someone's garage, and get accounts with distributors not named QBP. That way everyone gets wholesale prices.

Yeah, it's not only JR East that are retarded.

Although I'd argue, that while a little weird, "Hills" is still reasonable. It's a single syllable (in English), and it's to differentiate.
Also, "Roppongi Hills" has been around since practically forever.

>Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional
Someone once said this in relation to cycling. I disagree. For anyone who truly embraces cycling, especially endurance cycling, suffering is inevitable too. Someone who truly embraces cycling, a true cyclist, will not stop simply when they reach pain. They will keep pushing themselves until they are in so much pain that suffering is no longer optional. And they will embrace that suffering. For an endurance cyclist, or any endurance athlete, heaven and hell become synonymous. To an endurance athlete, heaven is the glory in going beyond one's physical and mental limits. And hell is the suffering in doing so. The suffering is the glory.
What would be the point of cycling if it didn't involve suffering?

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you fat lazy cager? I’ll have you know I placed top of my age group in the local Cat 1 race, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on /o/, and I have over 300 confirmed Cat 6 victories. I am trained in endurance cycling and I’m the top rider in the entire Tour De France pantheon. You are nothing to me but just another cager. I will wipe you the fuck out with speed the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me on my home board? Think again, cager. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of cyclists across the USA and your license plate number is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that hydroplanes out the pathetic little thing I call your death cage. You’re fucking rekt, fatass. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can BTFO your death cage in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my u-lock. Not only am I extensively trained in u-lock combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Cycling Team and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable cage off the face of the road, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn death cager. I will shitpost furiously all over your home board /o/ and your death cage threads will 404 in it.

..listen, buddy, I don't know who you are or what kind of cycling you do. Me, I'm a road cyclist on a local team. I train 6 days a week, and in a normal week the 7th day is in the gym doing core strengthening. Yesterday I did 30 minutes continuous at Threshold, a new PR for me. Looking at doing a TT this year, for the first time since I got hurt a few years back, and I think I can win one, or at least place in the top 5. Not bragging, just establishing who I am and what I'm about. Long rides at Threshold are no picnic.

There are two kinds of cyclists: Competitors, and everyone else. I don't care what kind of bike we're talking about, or what terrain you ride on, or how many days or how many miles a week, everyone falls into one of those two categories. The riders who are not competitors? They'll back off if it's starting to get uncomfortable. Why? Because they have *no reason* to push themselves that hard. In terms of training zones, if they push past Endurance and into Tempo or beyond, they won't stay there for more than a very short amount of time before backing off, because it's *uncomfortable* for them, and they don't feel the need to go that fast.

Competitors? They aren't pushing themselves to the point of it being abject suffering for no good reason, they know that on the other side of that suffering, there are *gains*. They know that as the mesocycles go by, they'll be able to go a little faster and a little longer because of that suffering, and they know that from those gains, comes getting that much closer to winning races, or that town-line sprint, or being first to the top of that big climb on the weekly fast group ride, or whatever it is that, for them, translates into 'competition'. Usually it's about some race or another, but it can even mean being the first to the top of that one big climb on the weekly group ride, or just beating your own PR on a set course you ride alone every week. There's a challenge, and they feel the need to meet it.
