Unless you're riding over potholes that would throw you over the handlebars (in which case, you're riding wrong), you're doing yourself a disservice using suspension.
>using suspension on poorly maintained paved roads (or even gravel roads other than fire roads and the roughest of forest service roads)
You're a massive fucking moron.
Poorly maintained roads means riding 28c instead of 23c or 32c instead of 28c. It means riding at 85psi instead of 100psi or 70psi instead of 85psi. It doesn't mean using fucking suspension you stupid fuck.
Or a cyclocross bike. Specifically a commuter/touring style cx bike, not a race cx bike. Something like a Salsa Vaya would be a great option for you if you can afford ~$1000.
You're a fucking moron.

The cup on my BB doesn't fit exactly flush into my frame, despite me having 2 spacers on. I'm wondering if this will cause my cranks to loosen faster as a result (nevermind the aspect of extra dirt inside BB bearings).

Does this look like too much space to anyone here, or am I being autistic again?
That's what happens when your ride BMX you fucking fag
If they feel like shit or wobbly then it'd be worth fixing if not don't bother. Use some grease to stop dirt getting inside.

That is not where Tulsa is. I'm surprised they even got Oklahoma City's location correct.
>I know, I was surprised too. No-one thinks of Houston as a port city
Was this sarcasm?
>You clearly have no idea about the retarded passive people that are the US population.
What are you talking about? Americans are the most aggressive NIMBY fucks in the world. If Americans were passive, like the Japanese and europoors, then they would already have high speed rail, like the Japanese and euros do. Just see >>1249582 as one of many examples. Americans are the kind of people who conduct armed insurrections because the government decided to build a dirt road on some guy's ranch (true story).
Maybe I'm just an idiot, Anon, but I only realized the port of Houston was a thing after living there for four years.

I mean, the Ocean's an hour drive away. Unless you live south of the inner loop it's not really obvious we have such a long connection to it.
You're right, passive was the wrong word to use. I meant a state of anti-rail NIMBY.

Is that a joke about narrow gauge railway?
Both of them are for /k/ids, kids.

And for the GAF one, it's indeed a story structured with a male main plus a number of girls around, but the main pair seems to be the OTP kind.

Literally none of that is true, you shitdick. I hate this city too but don't make shit up. The only Atlantans that think they're sophisticated are the west coast refugee's and dickheads here for work.
Yet the city have one of the largest public transportation hub in the world
I just wanted to bump this thread to mention how true this post is

Thats because big cities = cage cancer. Theres plenty of bikeable small cities like Savannah.

>pic of milk
You realize milk weakens your bones, right? The 'milk is good for your bones' lie is not only false, it's ironic and the complete opposite of the truth. Yeah milk has calcium but cow milk isn't good for humans and while it does contain calcium, it also leeches calcium from your bones and leaves your bones more brittle.
I don't think so, otherwise I'd be brittle as a fuck now.
You're not going to have brittle as fuck bones JUST because you drink milk, but they would be a bit stronger if you didn't drink it.
[citation needed]
>Weightbearing activities can be effective exercises to enhance bone health—particularly, those that involve jumping and impact loads (with greater strain magnitudes, rates, and frequencies).

This is also reflected in the fact that MTBers have higher bone densities than roadfags.

Hello, /N/. I question pop up in my head a while back and for the life of me, I can't find an appropriate answer. In a post-apocalyptic world, how would private transportation, or Public transportation re-emerge into a city-state society? Also, how would urban planning be like?

Don't they deterioate
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't it be easier to just make black powder?

Like, I really, really wouldn't want to be doing a nitration reaction without proper glassware and temperature control, and I also wouldn't want to be mixing high chamber pressures with homemade firearms.

It depends on where the road is, but generally the big thing that degrades roads is repeated loading and unloading stress caused by 18 wheelers.

So if everyone suddenly stopped driving on a road it might survive relatively intact, especially if you only need it to be good enough for horses.

October 28 at Chongqing, China, a bus carrying 15 people including the driver fell from a bridge into the river after crashing with a car. Because the river is 70+ meter deep and other complexity in environment, there are difficulty in search and rescue task, and they are unable to recover any survivor from the accident.

After they recovered the SD card from the remain of the bus, they are able to put puzzles together and tell what happened in the bus before it crash into the river.

No idea why they (sometimes) have helmets when they're on such a wide wheelbase and stuck on tracks. Other than that, it looks great.

I was touring when I passed a group of them and the riders-to-be getting some kind of introduction speech. I would have loved to have joined them, although their longest trip is only 26 miles.
Risk of collision without signaling and only tool to prevent head on collision would be visual mean so the risk is kinda not low?

Back by popular demand, ITT we discuss the greatest electrified railroad operation in world history. The proven corporate conspiracy to dismantle and abandon this operation, largely perpetrated from within the company itself by its own top-level officials, is one of the greatest crimes against humanity ever conceived and makes the Great American Streetcar Scandal look like amateurish in comparison.

Gone before its time, but not forgotten, the Milwaukee Road's Pacific Coast Extension lives on in the minds of all who encounter it. This thread is dedicated to the men and women who built and maintained this system, and the photographers who filmed and preserved this unique operation for posterity.

Considering we're mostly the products of English convicts/settlers and Europeans, you'd think we'd have a comfy af public transport system, yet it's terrible.

In my city of Adelaide, we have like six train lines (and one of those, the Tonsley line, doesn't even count cos it goes along the Seaford line before splitting away for like three stops before terminating), only one of them is electrified (the others are diesel powered) and the train cars look like they're straight out of the Soviet Union). Unlike in England where I could take a comfy train from London to York or some shit and see all sorts of countryside or whatever, in Adelaide it's nothing but concrete jungle and derroland (unless you're on the Belair line, but no one cares about that line). Honestly wanna live in England for a year or two, all I'd do is take kino as fuck trains everywhere and go all over the country.

On top of that, the stations are all run down and disgusting. The pic is of the station I'm going from or to regularly. There's derros everywhere, the lift is broken and smells like piss and shit and it's fucking disgusting. Why can't us Aussies have a kino train experience?

Also Australian transport thread. Talk about Aussie trains, trams, buses and other things about public transport in Straya.

The trains in Brisbane weren't too bad when I lived there. Used to live in the city, rode my BMX to the station, caught one train, transfered to another, then rode from the station to TAFE (community college).
I liked waiting at the station alone at night. Or coming into the city late in the afternoon around this one curve.
You're the kind of guy who tries to catch a train to Seymour with $2 left on your Myki aren't you?

Illinois Railway Museum has rescued North Shore Line #172 (Cincinnati Car Co. b. 1920) from the Indiana Transportation Museum. The 98-year-old car hasn't seen the light of day in decades, and since it was never "modernized" like IRM's other North Shore cars, they're going to restore it to its 1930s appearance/configuration.

Some politicians in Luxembourg expressed a desire to eliminate fares for all forms of public transportation.
What do you think?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
One of the countries with highest taxes. Why not, their citizens like ass rape anyway.
What about all the cross-border traffic?
Fares in lux are already ridiculously low. They might as well eliminate them altogether.
Fares aren't really part of public transit's problems, so I think that won't change anything.

That said, any attempts to increase ridership, if accompanied by increases in capacity, are good.
