It’s funny that retards claim high-speed rail wouldn’t work in America when we now have private airlines replacing regional flights with fucking BUSSES.

We don't need a high speed rail network in America, we need better public transit within cities.
I don't care if I fly or take the train from Las Vegas to Jackson, I care about if I need a car to get around Jackson when I get there.

I once desperately had to shit while out on a ride and there wasn't a single building as far as I could see so I just rolled off the road and got shittin, and a truck drove by in the middle of it. They didn't say anything, but the driver made eye contact with me while I was wiping my ass with leaves, and that was real awkward. I don't ride out that way anymore

When I lived out in NM, there were all kinds of spiky plants, but there's some kind of grass that the tip breaks off into your skin, then it swells up from your skin moisture. Impossible to get out with just your fingers.
So I asked at a local shop, and they recommended these miniature tweezers (Uncle Bill's Silver Grippers) and carrying a sewing pin (stick the pointy bit into a foam ear plug). Picking out thorns always sucks, but having the right tools at least makes it faster.

Please help me, my /n/igguhs.I'm a Brazilian flag moving to Ottawa in a month.

I want to live car-free there and I want to cycle through winter. I understand that Ottawa has one of the worst winters in a big city.

What do I need to do to be able to cycle when it's snowing? Does it make sense for me to buy a Fuji Touring Disc and swap the tyres for winter, studded tires when it starts to snow? Do I also need to install mittens on the handlebars?

Any Canadians, Americans, Finnish, Russian, Norwegian, Swedish, Icelanders, Greenlanders, Scottish or some other people that could share some experiences?

You guys are literally the people I trust the most for actual, relevant opinions on what's legit reasonable to do while cycling

bro. you are looking forward to 5 straight months of the temperature *never* getting that high.
https://www.weather2visit.com/north-america/canada/ottawa-january.htm
and that's not even factoring in wind chill. ottowa will hit -40F/-40C one or two times every winter.
and yes, the difference from 130F/ 54C to 45F/ 7C, is the exact same difference from 45F/ 7C to -40F/ -40C.
good luck.

So my dad lives in Ottawa and doesn't own a car. He's biked everywhere for like 15 years (55 years old now), and he uses studded tires with the handlebar glove things. He also wears ski goggles in the winter, and does a lot of layered clothing. He has these slush gator things as well to protect his feet from the slush. Other than that, reflective clothes, flashing light on the bike for visibility, and helmet. He has a summer bike, and a winter bike that are both dedicated to the purpose. I think he's got studded tires too for wintertime. He works 15 kms away from his house, so they are decent length bikerides and he's able to do it. Welcome to Ottawa, Anon. As much as people shit on it, it's quite a nice city.

What's that?

It’s a pretty interesting form of urban transportation. I just use it for trips where I’m going a few blocks but it really makes running errands faster.
>>
I've got one that I barely use and its got 110mm scooter wheels which you should never do because the handling is awful. Does look cool though.

There are no rules in FF bicycle design so there's a lot of areas for possible improvement. How would you design a feet forward that has the possibility of becoming mainstream?

One of my friends did this in college.
His idea was to ride the one train south, wait til it passed another, then hop over onto the train going north.
Where we were, there are parallel tracks, but they soon merge so it's just one line heading out of the city. There's a passing siding maybe 6 miles away, but there was no other train. So to get off safely he had to wait til the next little town, ~16 miles further.
Of course he called me, "Bro, can you pick me up?"

Truck driver here, /n/ is my life. I carry the usual phone, keys, wallet of course. I always (like: always) have my Victorinox Swisstool on my belt. About the heaviest multitool around, beefy enough for normal scale jobs. Often wear my personal H2S monitor as well, more difficult to justify that but it's handy in the 'patch.

No tire thumper?

How true is it that the big issue with Beeching's cuts was the excessive focus on closing down lines, especially ones with relatively limited usage, to cut costs as opposed to reforming British Rail's bureaucracy and most importantly modernizing the network and replacing the huge amounts of manpower-intensive equipment still left over from the victorian era like much of the signaling, introducing rail buses and motor coaches for smaller stations, and ending the permanent staffing of many smaller stations?

I don't think everything has a name. Personally, I'm partial to the five-stack interchange. The High Five in Dallas has the frontage road intersections on the second level.

Anyone actually own one? How is it?

I have a 29 inch wheel with centrelock, it has a slightly fucked front hub from a crash.

I was thinking of changing it later in the year for a dynamo hub, is it best to buy this then ask a bikeshop to fix it, or should I just buy a new fucking wheel?

How much do you think a bike shop will charge for this?
>>
>>1795429
>>1795436

Found a solution: To repair this you need a new "Seegerring" or circlip and special pliers like in the pic.
I unscrewed the ball joint from the brake ever and put the new ring on. After screwing it back in just enough to fit back into the joint, I pulled the brake lever a bit. Now i could use the pliers to pull the ring together, put it into the cartridge and open it again. Now the ball joint/the washer is being stopped by the circlip.
My brake works again :)
