>Amtrak is expected to return to the Gulf Coast within 24 months, linking a new passenger rail between New Orleans and Mobile.

>U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., announced Friday the awarding of a $33 million grant from the Federal Railroad Administration to fund infrastructure and capacity improvements that will enable Amtrak’s Gulf Coast return.

>The service has been suspended for 14 years since Hurricane Katrina wrecked much of the rail line in 2005.

I suppose it's to be expected since the Gateway project is pretty much dusted off plans from ARC, and that was designed for slower NJT commuter trains.

you wouldn't want a dropper made for any less anon, or made to the standards of a chinkshit office chair.
it would be really heavy and not reliable.
the chinks aren't ripping you off
you just have totally unrealistic expectations about price

it's better to have a good quality version of something simple than a very cheap version of something complicated, so stick to a regular seatpost

Niche item in a specialty market. The one pictured is shit, it's not hydraulic or infinitely adjustable; it's got little holes in the post that a spring loaded peg fits into. Have fun trying to get the position just right to slot the pin in while you're riding.

>>1348024
I bought one of those chinkshit satori droppers off aliexpress. On the outside it looks like the real deal and feels solid, but holy fuck did I get a surprise when I took it apart. Name brand posts have replaceable metallic guide bushings that ride in grooves cut into the tube to stop the seat from spinning around; well the chinkshit one instead had a millimetre thin single piece plastic part injection molded over the aluminum inner seatpost shaft to replace the guide bushings. I got chinked, I got chinked good by those gooks and all the stupid foreigners leaving 5 star reviews. I have no doubt that all it would take is a small crash to shear off the plastic and turn the post into scrap metal while also sending you to the hospital.

What I don't understand is that they did 95% of the work needed to make a legit dropper post and then skipped the one thing that would take like 50 cents worth of material and operations to do to make it safe and usable.
>>
>>1348033
Oh and I went back a few months later after leaving my review exposing the chink POS for what it was with pictures and it was gone. Seller had simply relisted the item or aliexpress themselves had wiped all the old reviews. Ordering simple items off there is fairly safe, but anything else is pretty much russian roulette with 5 loaded chambers.

Every extra car that goes on the road is in the way. I wouldn't worry about cars having to go a bit slower until they can overtake you.
Besides, going at the speed limit is no guarantee against cager faggotry. Some will see a bike and go HURR DURR MUST OVERTAKE and will do whatever is necessary to overtake the bike, regardless of your speed

The most valuable neighborhoods were those with rowhouses (they say terrace). Just having terraced housing seems to increase the neighborhood’s value.

What are your cycling related injuries, can be accidents to stress related stuff.

I have never imagined it could happen, because I just started to get into cycling.
Have done about 1000 km in 3 months, not much, started in March with 20 km distances and lately 100 km the longest.
On Thursday I did 55 km, pushed really hard on a steep slope and since then my left knee has been hurting.

Put ice bags on it, rubbed it with various gels, however I still cannot walk down the stairs without pain. Will I have to wait weeks and lose all my training progress?

>Shelter-niggers
The 2nd worst of all homeless. Communists, hippies, degenerates - the only real defining trait of them, besides living in a fucking shelter- is that they have given up to the base hedonism of life as a homeless - the small comforts it gives them is enough for them, as they meander from place to place, ultimately passive people in their views and lifestyles. The kind of people that legitimately enjoys employee orientation, the kind that has surrendered to their lifestyle of socializing, scavanging, and drug use. Sooner or later the drug use cascades into a bigger problem, and deteriorates their social life until they become junkies, but until then the Shelter-nigger is oft professing his love for communism, his demands that man be better treating of his fellow man (Himself)< and that society would be better off with his merticulous hand at the wheel - just like every other communist before they get kicked out of their mothers basement and either becomes a shelter-nigger or grows the fuck up. In many ways the worst simply because they're slower boiling then junkies, who will at least alert you quickly to their sense of self.

Beware of shelter-niggers, for they are the least american of all - they just want to survive, rather then thrive. When shown a land of 20 meters, they proclaim they would be happy with 10, rather then work to increase their plot of land
>>
>>1347560
>Junkies

The kind of people who get kicked out of shelters. Have you ever spent time with a drug user? A heroin addict is like a normal human, just with shifted priorities - their priority is heroin, first and foremost. Might be meth, might be h, might be anything - but it's different. Period. Once you see the tell tale signs you can pick them out instinctively.

Hobos of any kind seek out their tribe, but this one rather seeks out new tribes - to rip them off and stealing money for their drugs

They sleep where they pass out, they degenerate with their drug use, they beg for money for food only to turn around and spend it on drugs - they hang with the shelterniggers, so they know when there is free services and food - and have realized there is no real need to bother acting anymore. They get to be drug addicts and only need to hide it for minutes at a time - often not even bothering to do so as they can elict more sympathy - and thus money

To get kicked out of a homeless shelter is actually pretty hard - esp for homeless - so this junkie, who is so fucked up they can't even stay in a shelter, don't expect them to have a tent. These are the guys who will sleep in YOUR tent and apologize half heartedly and talk about drugs or something. Shelterniggers will hide their hard drug use - junkies will straight up ask if you have h/meth - note that not "do you do X", ie social interaction, but "do you HAVE x" ie, absolute drug seeking. This is the kind that does crimes for 3 hots and a cot - the solution to be being "Homeless" is to go to jail for a bit, get paid for your time in a relatively luxury resort (compared to shelters), get released, get pay from prison, get drugs, chill on drugs, get arrested - longer stay in prison? more drug money. No drug money? Go to prison.

>>1339634
Long story short, man has 3 needs

Sleep, Sustinance, Socialization

Sleep costs money for security but you can basically do it anywhere

Sustinance requires money for access to higher end foodstuffs but much of it is free

Socialization is "free", but it's not really - you buy women drinks, buy your appearance, you buy your status through objects

Resigning yourself to getting these things for free makes you homeless. Forgoing one or two is fine, but when you let go of all of them you cease to be human and instead become an animal. To be man is to be king of the food chain who asks "how to better myself" - to live in a cave and dream of a hut, to live in a hut and to dream of a mansion, and beyond that, to venture out and construct that hut, to pull taunt the skin of the buffalo over the frame of wood, to lay leaves and hides you know to be waterproof accross the roof of your house for drier rain days, to hollow out walls with holes to catch the wind for cooler hot days, to master your environment - I'd say a guy who works, socializes normally, then lives on a hammock off his motorcycle is infinitely less homeless then someone who works, socializes normally and lives in a shelter to "save money". its the difference between relying on your own solution and relying upon others - one is perfectly natural and the other is antiamerican communist garbage which in a more civilized nation would mean lynchings
