>>1380916
Pretty sure it was the swallows, honestly he original blue looked much better. Black ones often had worn paint, knowing government at the time they probably cheaped out on it. This was on the east coast mainline so i have no idea if this happened with other lines stock.

You tended to see the faded ones alot more after the class 90's entered service.

When I first saw this on the news I thought it was just another screwball American showing up the total inadequacies of the states security, and wrecking a perfectly good aircraft.
But.
When I found out that this guy wasn't even a pilot, and that he obviously had some psychological problems, the story takes on a whole different aura.
Learning to fly and being a pilot (I have had the pleasure of both) isn't as easy as you'd think, you can't just jump in and away you go. You have a set routine you must complete in order to get the aircraft to do what you want it to. Not only that, pressure of your surroundings, concentration, and just "being in the air" in a real aircraft puts a heavy weight on your mind and senses, something "playing video games" can't reproduce.
Now I know 'Rich' wasn't really fully in control of his mind, but he handled that aircraft pretty damn well. A couple of years ago in the U.K. a "professional pilot" do the exact barrel roll Rich did, and he managed to kill 11 people standing on the road he crashed on to when he performed his loop too low.
The barrel roll in that Q400 of Richards silhouetted against a beautiful sunset was one of the most elegant and perfect I've ever seen, especially when you realise that the guy's NEVER flown before! Not only that, he's doing it in an aircraft not built or designed for that either, showing he had a very delicate and understanding touch with the controls.
This could have ended so very differently and I'm glad that it didn't.
It's immensely sad that Richard didn't get the help that he obviously needed, but he sought to go out in a spectacular way, he most certainly achieved it.
Godspeed, Sky king.

How do I choose a tire width? I mainly just cruise around on my bike pic related at relatively slow speeds. I've read that wider tires actually have less rolling resistance somehow. Is that true? I've tried 23c and 28c and thought 23c seemed to roll better. Might be placebo I don't know. But the 28c seemed to be more comfortable over bumps. I ride a lot of rough pavement. I'm thinking of getting 32c if they roll better and are more comfortable. What should I order bros?

Ty naigha I was gonna buy some 28mm anyways. Good to know for sure. While I’m at it, are gatorskins memes or actually tough tires? I commute 6 miles and don’t need speed, just peace of mind
>>
>>1380623
Personally I use flat prevention strips in my tires to stop flats instead of buying thicker tires. Haven't had a flat in years.

In terms of weight and long-term cost idk if there's a meaningful difference between liners + thinner tires that wear out a bit faster versus just using thicker tires that probably cost more per set.
>>
>>1380623
I've heard gatorskins are hard and not comfy. I think most mechanics roll their eyes at them so I take that as a sign. I have heard that they are very slippery in wet conditions too. Might ask be snobbery but I have ridden them briefly and they were hard. I had great luck not flating on 28c Rubino Pros for years at 180lb.
Looks like continental has the Grand Prix tire that is similar to a Rubino pro
https://www.bicyclerollingresistance.com/road-bike-reviews/continental-grand-prix-2014
There is also a gt version that means Grand Tour and probably slower with more protection
>>
>>1380623
Gatorskins suck. They ride poorly and have next to no grip in the wet. Grand Prix 4 Seasons are much better all around and have the same level of puncture protection.

If you can run tubeless 25c GP5k feels perfect on really rough roads and they are extremely fast. I am 180# and run them at 75psi front 80psi rear.
I know a lot of guys in my city (LA) run 28c now. I tried running 28c and they felt slower on the acceleration but I doubt there is much difference at cruising speed.
If you have wide internal rims 25 can be closer to 28 anyway.

Yup. The hump was put in to maximize the cross section of the cargo area. If the cockpit was flush with the main fuselage, the 747 would have suffered from the same issues as the A380 when it comes to cargo conversions.

Post infrastructure designed to give transit advantages.

Dedicated lanes, HOT lanes, bus only shoulders, traffic signal priority, prepay stations, dedicated bridges. I figure it might be slim pickings showing stuff in America but there should be neat infrastructure in other countries. Picture related is in Los Angeles.

The car kills air resistance but the biker still needs to overcome rolling resistance and internal friction. If you went downhill too there's no reason the bike couldn't match the car's top speed. They have road cars that can get close to 300 now, don't they?

Actually, why not just put the bike and rider inside the car and be done with it.
