Post about staying dry under the rain.

Does this type of polyester fabric coat work well enough? I tried making waterproof fabric with silicone caulk and cotton canvas and while it works like magic, I also found out that silicone caulk can be used as rocket fuel. I did a small burn test and the silicone-caulk waterproofed fabric burns better than the raw fabric I made it from.

I've bought a second hand rain jacket with Gore Shakedry material and it's pretty good. Very compressable to put into a jersey pocket and it's really breathable as well. Only downside is that it's black so I wear my high viz wind jacket on top.

Small to medium rain won't soak you much for 30-45 min and won't make you sick as long as you keep moving, no matter how low temperature is. Heavy rain is always in weather forecasts. Just have extra clothes in a backpack.

The retirement of the Concorde was the biggest setback to transportation of the past millennium. The future of intercontinental transportation is currently sitting in a museum right now. It can fly from New York to London in 3 hours, and it was made in 1979. Imagine how easy intercontinental flights would be today if we had a modern version of the Concorde. The Concorde was the coolest airliner ever made and nobody will convince me otherwise. The fact that something this groundbreaking was retired still amazes me to this day.

It's the nuclear power of aircraft. It's amazing, we'd all be better off if it was widespread. But boomers and subsequently everyone since are too retarded to embrace the future.

>genuine question: what's the longest you've been sat waiting at a level crossing
one time a long intermodal frieght train stopped at the crossing between the freeway and half the large city of madera, ca. luckily i didnt have to cross the tracks to get to my destination, and i was able to squeeze my way through the clogged intersection by driving on the sidewalk.... when i was done with my task 30 minutes later, the train was still there, not moved

Would I notice anything if I was to upgrade my 3x bike's front derailleur from Tourney to Altus or Alivio? Have to fuck around the groupset a bit anyway (chain + cassette change, rear adjustment) and last time I had to adjust the front it felt kinda annoying to get it set.

Probably not.

>>1855276
maybe ask on /sci/, i'd imagine that the geometry might make it slightly different because it would wrap around more on the larger chainring. realistically you would use the same length chain but it might have some effect on the chain tension.

are you really kvetching about above -20 as if it's unliveable? if you've lived somewhere with those temperatures you'd know how easy it is to layer up, yes even as a biker, also public transportation is almost always heated unless you live in a shithole, especially subways.

If someday they'll build a tunnel between the basements in my neighbourhood and the next tram station I'd be able to visit several huge malls all around the city without being subjected to weather while walking for 4 minutes and would probably go shopping in my pyjamas.
Maybe that is the future of public tansport, full asimov-style indoor environments.

I also used to ride my bike to school through deep snow and while it was freezing though, even if I could just have taken the bus. Snow hills and -19 C was just more fun than muddy weather at around 0.

The damper is useful for situations where you are on and off the bike alot, cargo loads, pushing the bike, leaning the bike.

For example, off my bike and pushing it takes too much effort to correcting the steering.

Some way to lock the steering internally would be a cool feature as long as it can't be accidentally set to achieve results of pic related

Actually... Now I think about it, steering dampener can be a part of design, but still I've doubts it is needed at bike speeds.
