How can anyone be expected to use public transit when even in a well-funded major city, it takes 4 times as long as driving and offers a much more inconvenient experience?

Thats the case in literally all of germany.
I rode public buses/trains/trams for over 5 years while studying. It cold in the winter, everything is wet, poor stinky lowclass people everywhere, immigrants everywhere. And the worst part is OP's main point. Most destinations take me max half the time of public transport.
I sit around in my 1998 bmw 7 series listen to some nice music, aircon is just right, double glassed windows and insulation cancels nearly all sounds from outside.
Went to a few countries abroad and the public transport there is even worse and slower. It just sucks absolute ass.
Got some bicycles just to have fun and sometimes get some groceries but thats it.

Assuming an average city driving speed of 31mph, your destination was 12.4 miles away.

Paying for parking is the big reason for me to take transit. It can cost $50 for parking for an event versus a $4 transit fare. After the event I walk out on to the train while cagies wait in parking garages for 45 minutes until its their turn to exit. By then I'm already back on my couch.

If I don't have to pay for parking, I usually drive. Plus frequency is freedom and sometimes transit doesn't come very often with the labor shortage.

it's worth noting that the only nation investing in serious maglev research is a nation with a history of investing in rail transportation, and a proven history of doing well at rail transportation.

Yea, that's exactly the cause of the damaged. Top nut was never tightened fully. I built the bike but didn't have the proper spanners and simply hand tightened it. Rode it a bit too much like that I suppose. I caused the damage and I'm unhappy about it.

I will likely get a new fork. Can you help me with options/styles? The bike is a 1994 Raleigh r40? (Or something).
I'd assume I need to research how to measure my fork so I get a similar replacement.

Thank you so much. Filling and rethreading is awesome.

What are some /n/-approved video games?

I got Transport Fever 2 in a sale recently. I expected it to be an uninspired OpenTTD clone, but it's actually great. The game itself is meh, but the graphics are very nice and it really does feel like a digital model train set. It's just fun trying to build aesthetic stations, depots, sidings, junctions, etc.

So if you look at other cities like Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul they also once has an extensive tram network- but gradually removed between the 50s and the 80s. For all the talk of Big Oil and Ford working together to destroy trams in Sydney, LA; it seems the same phenomenon was happening elsewhere in the world. The difference is that China and Japan eventually ended up replacing their streetcar system with something better like fast suburban rail or subway. Though, in China's case, they probably not have bothered in the first place. The next boom seems to be every City wants their own light rail system.

So it makes me think. Was the death of trams and streetcars really down to evil companies wanting to make more money; or is there something more to it?

>>1838668
you can still modernize your business and have a conspiracy at the same time. those aren't mutually exclusive things. in a free market economy, finding a way to corner the market by undermining alternative consumer choices (read: a conspiracy) is inherent to the system. Conspiracies exist everywhere in economics and politics, because a conspiracy is nothing more than a secret or not so secret scheme to hinder opponents through various means, whether legal or illegal.

I mess with bike lane parkers all the time.

Easiest thing to do is not say anything, just conspicuously pull out your phone & take a picture of their license plate & the driver. (My state requires front plates.)

Most of the time they'll pull away immediately, but occasionally one will get aggressive & talk back. It's what you'd expect, some form of "What the fuck? You can't take a picture of me! Or my vehicle", etc.

"You're in public. I'm just reporting it through the 311 app. Parked in a bike lane." (You can report parking issues with this tool, but a picture isn't required, it just freaks people out.)

If they still don't leave, I'll actually call the PEO & report them lol. Sometimes they'll huff and say "Well, I'm NOT leaving" and I'll just say twisted shit to try to get a rise out of them.

"Oh, I don't have a job, or any responsibilities. I can just wait until they arrive, get a positive ID on the criminal."

The funniest thing is when people pull the race card, "I betchu ain't even report a white person." That shit happens 10x more often, since the death of St Floyd.

That's hilarious.
And yeah I notice it's overwhelmingly puerto ricans who park in the bike lanes.
I can go to a neighborhood like Long Island City though and find a bunch of whites and asians parked in the bike lane. Over there they just use it like an extra onstreet parking lane.

The tipping point for me was when cars just started pulling in front of me to park in the bike lane while I was riding.

I mess with jews all the time.

Easiest thing to do is not say anything, just conspicuously pull out your phone & take a picture of their nose & little hat. (My state requires yellow stars.)

Most of the time they'll pull away immediately, but occasionally one will get aggressive & talk back. It's what you'd expect, some form of "Oy vey, you can't take a picture of me! Or my kippah", etc.

"You're in public. I'm just reporting it through the SS app. Staying in a gentile land." (You can report jewish issues with this tool, but a picture isn't required, it just freaks semites out.)

If they still don't leave, I'll actually call the SA & report them lol. Sometimes they'll huff and say "Well, I'm NOT leaving" and I'll just say twisted shit to try to get a rise out of them.

"Oh, I don't have a job, or any responsibilities. I can just wait until they arrive, get a positive ID on the criminal."

Scrolling through marketplace edition.

Post here for help buying a bike.

If you want recs off craigslist, post your local site, height, budget, and intended use.

Recommending specific models of new bikes is kinda pointless because of availability. If you want help choosing between real options post for hot takes.

Always buy a bike you like the look of and like the paint of. And that fits you well.

It's certainly pricey, I can't argue with that. I'd definitely recommend a late-afternoon trip followed by a hotel stay as an alternative ... still, sitting down to eat a cooked breakfast in the restaurant car, with early-morning Scottish scenery whizzing past your window, is part of the adventure I suppose. Leave your baggage at the station once you arrive, and away you go.
