Space optimization is great and all, but if all the space that’s created is going to be taken up by one or two cars is there really a point? As another anon pointed out all that’s really going to happen is you’ll have less space to park your bike.

How realistic was the train? Is it possible to create a train that can run continuously without any contact with the outside world for nearly 2 decades?
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
It's possible
Much more possible if it's a maglev, although then you would more than likely require at least a land based power plant to run.
yeah but the buffet car sandwich supply will be very low
In the original comic book the train wasn't meant to ride forever, it was just their last resort. I suppose that frozen tracks can resist better, dunno...
I think the comicbook author failed to understand what La Compagnie des glaces was about, and instead leaned on Noahs Ark without understanding that story as well.
Where the Korean production just amps up these ideologies to a parodic level.

Overman King Gainer was unironically a better adaption, and that had the issue of the Mecha/SoL aspects blocking what could have been a really good adaption.
>I suppose that frozen tracks can resist better, dunno...
Cold temperatures stress tracks more if anything.

Old bridge was opened in 1957, which is peak socialism era in Norway. It's also downstream which may have been a contributing factor.
There's now talk of reinstating the old bridge to rail duty. If the loading guage fits, it's maybe able to carry today's axle loads at 5-10 km/h, is my guess. Mind you, it was replaced due to the weak superstructure.
Look, a bus crash

It was appropriate for recent occurrences of the last couple years. Wildly unexpected events with negative outcomes and consequences for the topic in question. Whatever the current zeitgeist is comes and goes. First example I can really think of something adopting it as a name, seems fitting enough for an aircraft though- could make a case for any avian derived one.

How do you guys lock up your bike?

Just started biking recently and only leave my bike at home or whoever's home I'm visiting

Want to start biking to other places were I would leave my bike outside for under an hour. What are secure ways to keep your bike locked up?

I know angle grinders kill everything, nothing can stop a thief yada yada

I have quick release wheels, and something I saw people suggest is to remove the front wheel, line it up with the rear one and lock both wheels and the frame to a post. That this would also make the bike already looted at a glance, and less likely to be targeted
Pitlock security axles
Good ulock

That is all
>Low/Mid level Second hand bike to begin with, some identifying stickers and stuff so that It's not worth the effort nicking it to begin with.

>Shackle U lock on wheel and inner triangle

One time my bike got stolen off the racks right in front of my dorm in college. Who steals bikes? Is it all druggies looking for quick cash?

Are there too many airplanes in the skies? They come close to crashing into each other more than once a day on average.

>change your outreach focus to more accurately represent the population as a whole and you can easily fix the white male problem by changing the demographics of your applicant pipeline
That only works if you force people to select careers in proportion to the demographics. I see it in engineering all the time. Men disproportionately choose to do engineering; I can’t hire women who didn’t choose to do it. Women don’t choose to be boilermakers or roughnecks. They choose nursing and early education. It’s fine that some careers are dominated by people with certain immutable characteristics. It’s not an -ism; it’s just the reality that some characteristics are better suited than others for tasks. I don’t want a pilot to throw up their hands when they see LAND ASAP in red. I want someone who will stop, take a deep breath, and fly the airplane all the way to the crash site.
I've barely seen any aircraft in the sky since 2020.

It's also a way to make the bars usable for bikes that were designed with normal flat bars in mind. Otherwise you're shortening the reach massively with the bars.
Aerobars are great for long straight stretches but I got rid of mine because I simply hate not having a brake when riding on them. It just doesn't sit right not being able to quickly react to anything that *might* come up.
Drop bars always

With dropbars you go faster and you have a lot of position to move your hands AND BODY around.

Flatbars are WAY MORE controllable at low speed.

Hybrid bikes are among the best bikes in the world.

They are called safety brakes. Consider that in the 70s every fucking road bikes in the US used to come with them. Nowadays they are inline with your brake cable. They work by pushing the housing istead of pulling the cable. I know, it's sound like science fiction, but in this universe elongating the housing is equivalent to pulling the cable.

you don't need to change it if your current crank length feels fine. studies have shown negligible performance differences between different lengths iirc. maybe look at what seems normal like subtract 2.5mm from what comes with stock bike builds, compare to pros with a similar saddle height as you if they have that info posted online.

New thread

I personally don't understand the value of having more then 11 speeds. If you're an old man, fine but if you're fit you just need a fast gear and then an emergency granny ring for the bad days

>doesn't provide any counter-evidence to Scarlet Johansson not being a tranny

NTA but in all seriousness I could see things like some saddles getting the "for women" stamp even though their shape is made for men just to market to trannies
Because DH is just a subset of MTB and not all of it.
I like climbing and if you don't want to pedal they make e-bikes/dirtbikes.
Most popular mountain biking on the internet seems to be enduro and for that they have to climb fireroads at least.
>me enjoying my 3x9, 1x1, and 1x10 all on different days

just wait until they get gibs for existing and cutting themselves, then people will market harder to them.
Another BB ?

Let's just take a moment and reflect on how great the brooks b17/flyer saddle is and how effortless and wonderful it is to sit on it for 10 hours straight or why not around the clock for ultimate pleasure.
It's opium, isn't?

Probably because your brain doesn't have the computing power to simulate the internal state of other people's brains and unlike some comments on this subreddit, this one resonated for you in some way. That being an exception rather than the rule, your brain attempted to seek an explanation but it ran out of steam simulating the proposition that other minds exist and you just stuck a period on that sentence and ran with it.

Having both tried opium and the B17, there's only one of those that kills my prostate dead. Whether or not your backside agrees with a B17 is personal, as with any saddle really.

I've seen a modest but not insignificant number of people use it during ultraraces.
