A lot of old road bikes I'm looking at have an extra tube next to the seat tube. What is it and what does it do?

There should be PSAs telling people how to drive in traffic.

Not getting a job at Burger King when you were 18 wouldn't be a barrier to a career. They had probably hired people like you who didn't have reliable transportation and got burned, so they just stopped hiring people who didn't drive

You have a mental problem

GNER made the best use - livery wise - of the TMST
I liked the TMST, ultimately, though, not for the reason you'd probably expect.
I took the Eurostar from Brussels to London in 2017, but I live in Ireland, so it's not a journey that would ever be something I'd normally experience, but I was in Germany at the time, and decided to take the ICE to Brussels and then the Eurostar.

Regardless, the TMST was pretty nostalgic for me, not because I had been on one before, but because I had used the Belfast-Dublin Enterprise train a lot. At that time, they had "modernised" and totally redone the interior, but the original interior was to the Eurostar spec, and was manufactured by DeDeitrich (a coach builder which was absorbed into Alsthom).
Having the exact same seats, tables and carpets was something I didn't expect to be immediately familiar with, despite having never been on the TMST before.
Same here
The styling cues now are shit. Anything white with a monocolor wavy band can go straight back to hell.

They're just incredible to look at. Smooth uninterrupted asphalt with clear and sharp white markings on the road. No oil spills or stains to be seen. There aren't many manholes or access points and those that are there blend into the streetscape perfectly. Everything feels freshly built when in reality it's probably been there for years.

I stepped on a bug. That insect's progeny could've saved MILLIONS from starvation! Therefore, I must be held responsible.
So by that logic, gay men literally murdered 32.7 million people and soon many millions more because they started transmitting HIV/AIDS in 1981.

...by that logic: every single person having gas heating in their house, every single person who bought more than a drop of petrol (gas in burgerlanguage...), everyone on earth for his ancestors participating on the steam era, because it began with burning coal in trains, factories and homes...

Blaming big oil is comfortable but not correct, it should be all of us who let big oil become big...

I've been to third world countries where they're bicycle dependent and I find it almost offensive how we have access to these amazing machines in the west and fucking walmart fats with plenty of money won't spend more than $300. really blows my mind how people would rather have a shitty car and a bunch of video games or something than an awesome bike or two.

It kind of intersects the Q Line but that’s so infrequent as well. I really want this kind of stuff to succeed but it’s hard not to scoff. If Detroit had at least kept the five major PCC served lines radiating out from downtown, and built a subway under Woodward as was proposed in the 20s...well, the place still would have gone to heck but maybe not quite as bad.

>>1592550 is right:
>There's not a lot of incentive to build or to sell to a developer.

Lots don't exist for no reason, the owners will do a cost/benefit analysis of development. In a lot of cases it really is the easiest way for profit to just leave it at a surface lot. Easy to maintain, low maintenance, minimal (if any) employment. To develop the lot means construction, planning, permits, hiring consultants, leases, all sorts of things that have risks. How tall of a building do they put? How much can they risk? What if the building doesn't fill with tenants? If their lot is already being filled and making consistent cash, owners often just leave it as is.
the market didn't really build the highways tho
Used this one in Naha, really nice, but it is more expensive than other rail services in other parts of the country
The history of the people mover is that everyone was bitching about how Detroit had zero local public trans it and zero transit that was safe so they installed the people mover to shut everyone up, hence why it's generally a piece of shit that is only ever used when the Con Center has their car show. Now that Detroit is "bouncing back" (pro tip: it's not) there have been talks about fulling getting rid of the mover and just putting in more trolly track.

Kensington is my commute, I don't want cycle lanes anyway. I can't think of anything more boring. Doing the same routes regularly is bad enough.
fuck off, victoria is the best
how do cycle lanes stop you from doing a different route you retard?
