When do yachts stop being made of fiberglass and start being made out of metal?

Not the same as having a grenade strapped to your frame that can sperg out and explode at any time. Also, all batteries have poor cold weather performance.

Pretty sure you aren't allowed to ride something like that in most countries when you have a DUI.

When I see someone like that I see a tryhard that wants to ride a motorcycle but thinks he also rides a roadbike and feels like a winner when overtaking people on roadbikes.

says who? I will fight them. And yes, they make great budget touring bikes, Just either buy one in good condition, or fix it up first, or both, and avoid suspension

there are good and bad just like any other bike. The big plus with a rigid 90s mtb is that a mid-range or a top tier model is still only like $100

they are extremly bad for mtb use, you just didnt had any better in the 90s. todays mtbs are very bad for flat riding so that is what makes 90s mtb such good commuters.

Puttgarden. It's the train which goes from Hamburg to Copenhagen. They use a mix of ICE-TD stock from DB and IC3 stock from DSB. That's right, the sphynter train goes to Germany.

DB are scrapping the ICE-TD. It was too fuel inefficient, and it's only useful on unelectrified lines.
>>
>>1377386
Two years ago they stopped using ICE TD on the route (or anywhere, for that matter). Neither DB nor DSB wanted to cover maintenance costs.

It is a good mix of Germany having electrified all intercity routes and Denmark having a hilariously outdated railway infrastructure.

At one point, a rail trip from Manhattan to west of the Hudson meant a ferry ride unless you were taking the Pennsylvania or New York Central, and even they ran ferries. None of these carried railroad cars, just people to big terminals in New Jersey. The Lackawanna Hoboken Terminal and the Jersey Central Communipaw Terminal are the last survivors of this service. The last railroad ferries ran in 1967.
>>
I should add that the Hoboken Terminal still has lots of trains for NJ Transit and there’s still small ferries that dock there. The building has been beautifully restored and they even rebuilt the clock tower. Outside of Grand Central it’s the best railroad station in the area and shares a similar Beaux Arts style. The Jersey Central one has been a relic since the mid 60s and the ferry slips are gone but it’s very impressive and worth seeing.

Is it bad I quite liked them from a design challenge point of view? What's weird is now we'll have mixed fleets (see Thameslink and Great Northern) that either have yellow fronts or inconsistent liveries, as the 700s aren't approved for yellow-less fronts and the 717s are, despite being the same fucking train.

It just won't work.

"More than one in five Americans -- some 36.9 million -- are not fit to drive and would fail a driving test if asked to take one today, according to a new survey of the nation's drivers."

You should drive, then, so we don't have to have more faggots posting garbage about public transit.

Insider from the industry here. Ebikes are absolutely going to take over. You have no idea what how big numbers and forecasts are. blabla its a fad blabla. Within the next 5 to 7 years 90% of bicycle commuters are going to use electric. Decreasing costs and increased density are going to make it too tempting not to. We're heading into an unprecedented personal transportation revolution, personal mobility is going to increase a lot, and guess what, its all beautifully simple and easy on the wallet. Ebikes will replace all mopeds/scooters within the next 5 years, and reduce car usage by a good 30-50% in major cities over the next 10 years.
