Oh yeah, and it also has no jetways, instead using old-school airstair boarding from the tarmac, which as an /n/ kind of guy is pretty cool. It must be one of the last major market airports in the country to be that way.

The terminal is being completely replaced by a new one between runway 15/33 and North Hollywood Way. It will have the same number of gates, but be much more efficient for airfield operations and passengers.

There is physically room to expand it to the north and east (along runway 8/26), but that'll be a long way off.

Oh awesome, I hadn't realized they'd finally pushed it through. It's about time. Sounds like they're knocking the whole old terminal down, though, which is a shame since it's a cool historic site. I'd love to see them just remove the modern wings and turn the old terminal into a museum, it'd be the ideal site for a Lockheed history museum.

Believe it or not, it will pull 31" diameter curves. It looks silly doing it. It's the 2003 K-Line Big Boy. They scaled it down to 1/64 scale instead of true1/48 O Scale and unlike the prototype, the second engine pivots on the center of the boiler. This clip shows one pulling 36" diameter curves.

Custom Lego trains are pretty cool, but the ones sold by Lego or whatever in that pic are more of a toy thing
Also standard Lego/block switches have a retarded design and curves have a hilariously tight turn radius. There's custom track out there that fixes that, or the 'long curves' trick.

The trains themselves could be considered /toy/, but if anything the hobby overall would fit more into /diy/ since for most people it's more about making things than collecting them. /n/ still makes the most sense for it, though, simply because it's the board where train people congregate.

Please post your requirements in a bike and also your budget and height anons, and someone will more likely be able to help you.

Some dedicated anons will give recommendations if you post your local craigslist too. May Sheldon Brown give favour to them on their rides.

It doesn't have 105/ultegra, those shifters are the shitty old sora with the thumb buttons
It's definitely a downgrade from your current bike
It even has an octolink crank.
If those shifters had been replaced, it probably would have been due to a crash, in which case, avoid.

It's fine to buy 10yo carbon, just scrutinize it very carefully in person for any cracks

The tournament itself starts on February 15th with /n/ seeded in Pot 2, where our tiny board could face opponents like /pol/, /sp/ and /vg/ and pull off some big upsets.

You can vote here and have your say on how our board should be represented:

Probably gonna be riding in the snow for the first time over the weekend or next week. My bike isn't really made for winter. I commute 10 miles to work and some of it is in streets shared with cars. Should I just say fuck it and ride on the sidewalk for those stretches?

They were both broken on same side of hub so when I tried walking my bike after wards it was way out of true, and pressing so hard against the breaks that I had to release it from the dropouts.

The problem with riding on sidewalks is that it makes you unpredictable and unexpected at every intersection, which greatly increases your changes of having accidents and collisions. Also, it won't help you at all during winter, because a sidewalk is more likely to have more snow and ice accumulation than the road.

Say what you will about the history of the 737, I'm not going to think twice about boarding a 737 run by a European airline. Or really a North American one, or even a Far Eastern one. As much as I adore the A320, the 737 is still a very serviceable aircraft, with more or less the same capability as the A320.
Widebodies are incredibly safe aircraft. While I would prefer to fly on a newer A350 and marvel at it, if the cheaper flight was on a 777, 787 or even 767, I'd still fly on that.
>>1275117
Airbus' military focus is far more.... scaled down... The European states, especially NATO members, don't spend nearly as much as the US does on defence. Indeed, the US spends more on defence than all other countries put together. The US is the definition of the Military Industrial Complex. Of course Boeing would cash in on that. The closest Airbus came was with the joint venture with Northrop Grumman to make the A330 MMRT. Boeing still won that contract, even after a court proved that Boeing cheated.
Airbus just doesn't fit into the same slot Boeing does. No country will ever spend more than the US does on defence, and Airbus won't get US contracts as a "foreign" company (despite having facilities in the US, comparable to H&K).

>>1275146
Europe has the chance to build a 4+ gen fighter platform for the whole continent and one that would sell well outside of Europe and it failed because France built the Rafale and Sweden the Gripen instead of just joining the Eurofighter program. That's why you see the F-35 winning a lot of fighter competitions on the continent, because Europe/Airbus blew it and left the door open. They absolutely could have prevented it.

What's the greatest number of stairs you've had to walk up to get on transit?
28 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>
In my own city, the stations most are at ground level and you usually walk some stairs to get about a single storey high to cross the tracks. Longest I've walked down was in my trip to São Paulo though, all of the Yellow Line is some 30 meters below street level and some stations are just huge boreholes on the ground you can look all the way down into, you have to go through like 4 or 5 mezzanines to get to the platforms, no idea how many steps though. Now they wanna make Line 6 some 60 meters deep because REASONS.

I pity any of you guys who live in São Paulo and take L4 regularly, it shouldn't have to take 10 minutes of stairs just to go from gate to train, then again from train to exit.

Some of the subway stations in Tokyo have crazy amounts of stairs to get up to the surface, and even more if connecting to an elevated train above the subway station. What's really bizarre is that there seems to be little rhyme or reason as to whether there will be stairs or escalators, I've been in some stations where you ride an escalator up one level, then climb stairs, then another escalator, etc., and that's all in one continuous tunnel with no alternative routes.
>>
>>1270746
The interchange between L9 Sud and L1 on the Barcelona Metro.
It took me 8 minutes to get from one line to the other. The lift was out of order, so I just used the escalator. I was carrying heavy luggage anyway, so I couldn't have just walked up the escalators.

I regularly ride both an aluminium and a carbon road bike and I agree. The alu bike is stiff as hell and feels incredible while cornering, but its very uncomfortable when the road is not perfect. The carbon bike on the other hand seems to glide over rough roads and is super comfy all around, and in the end of the day its actually a little bit faster than the alu bike even if it doesnt feel faster. The carbon bike is by far the better bike, the only gripe I have with it is that it doesnt feel as responsive as the alu bike when cornering, but it wouldnt surprise me if its actually faster there too.

The carbon bike is more than twice as expensive though, so theres that.

Bleeding is a very rare problem to encounter, and it is a better idea for a newer rider to hand the brakes over to a competent mechanic to get it sorted. In general, hydraulic brakes should only need bleeding when the system has been "opened up" for some reason, or when a leak has either allowed air in or allowed enough brake fluid to drain out that the master cylinder is pumping air. The "need to bleed" indicates a problem with the brakes.

On autos, hydraulic brakes should be drained and new fluid installed about every 50,000 miles (though this is rarely done). Comparable mileage on a bike would probably be 5,000-10,000 miles. I have hydraulic discs on my cross/winter hack and have been very happy with their lack of maintenance compared to my old mechanical disc brakes

totally agree with this anon, ive been riding the same more or less entry level shimano hydraulic disc brakes on my mtb for like 2 years riding almost every day now and all ive had to change or do maintenance wise is change the brake pads a couple of time as they wear down and clean them a bit every now and then.

totally worth the bit of extra cash. ill never go back to mechanical and having to deal with fucking cablebrakes ever again - theyre such a pain to keep running well in comparison especially if you live in a wetter area.
