>colombia's railroad system is almost entirely abandoned narrow-track mountain trains that serve no purpose


>tfw pic rel is basically the only train running in the country
blessed train autist
What train is this?
unspecified narrow-gauge (3ft !!!) steam locomotives that run on the Sabana touristic line, which serves the capital and a few cities around it.
as far as I know the furthest station it will go to is Nemocon, 70km away from Bogota.

Don't really understand mopeds but if they come in 125cc then suggestions are welcome too.

Gonna be for general, non-special usage. A bit of dirt road once a while, a semi-long trip once in a while. Most of the time, driving around urban hoods and enjoying some uphills.

Probably gonna need a storage box or something added to it.

You'll know the pros and cons. Which should I go for? Budget limited to 125cc quality or 200cc cheap brand.

How do we make the roads safer for lightweight PEVs, velos and ebikes?

I was thinking instead of those pesky traffic cameras we could install motion activated speed bumps. Just a series of blocks that normally sit flush with the road but raise up whenever someone does more than 5 or 8mph over the speed limit.

Since most car trips are 11 miles or less it doesnt make sense to use a 4,000 pound vehicle to move a single human from A to B and back.

What do you guys think?

we do blood sacrifices of lightweight PEVs, velos and ebike owners untill the pavement is nothing but blood and scabs, then christ will come and expell the jews to hell.

Nah, Sacramento is still pretty shit if you want to go to the westside of the river, or Natomas.
It's decent but you also have to live in Vancouver so eh...

Ottawa's decent (I've lived here all my life and basically taken every type of transport possible) but the O-train has been a massive mess. As in, the wheels cracked under the strain of how many people took it because they FORGOT TO ACCOUNT FOR IT.

We're definitely a pretty good city for it, especially because we tend not to have the worse traffic, but I'd probably put is more on the level of something like, i dunno, Minneapolis than an actually good city for transport like New York.

Here's hoping though
I've lived in Toronto and Montréal, never owned a car, both have been pretty good to me in terms of transit I especially love the streetcars of my home city

any advice anons?

Getting a rail job is ridiculously easy if you got a CDL A with hazmat/TWIC. I also got a forklift certification and confined space entry. Basically you do ~6 months moving pallets at a truck crossdock which is like working for a railroad but more dangerous due to the constant crush hazard. Fact is most RR equipment are airbrake-equipped combination trucks, and RRs need people licensed to operate them. Most of the time will be spent stuck in traffic on freeways going from jobsite to jobsite unless the railroad is competent enough to setup a workshop inside a caboose or MOW train.

Depends where you work. My state restricts UP's ability to subcontract work because we're not a right-to-work state. UP is less picky than my regional MTA, they require about ~5 years experience at UP just to get an interview. This is because they run with UP trains so the operation is setup to snipe employees from UP rather than train them in-house. Kinda dumb IMO when the job is so much easier (doing the same 10 stops every day versus doing 20 different stops every other day).
complete side track but they managed to export the 230? god damn feels like the pacer experiments again
Pretty sure it's a trial run

Thinking about ordering a Sur Ron ebike. Any competitor bikes I should look into? Do you have any advice/criticism about the Sur Ron? My plan for riding is just to have something to fuck around on with decent speed without getting in trouble.

not really an e bike if it doesn't have pedals now is it

no but if you aren't an obnoxious prick nobody will care
A lot of places have restrictions on what’s legal or not depending on the engine size, maximum speed and how the bike looks. But like other users said, depending on where you live, cops only pull over if youre being a dumbass or they want to tack on a charge.
As long as they have rearview mirror and the lights, its legal

If you get properly baggy rain clothes it isn't much of a problem for commuting speed. But yea it's less than ideal for cardio j will admit.

What the Fuck else can you do, though? Short of bringing spare clothes?

I feel like best solution is a decent raincoat and some synthetic leggings, keep your real pants in a bag and change upon arrival. Otherwise bring a little wet really isn't a big deal.
rei house brand gore tex jacket, rapha technical trousers, wool socks, chrome brand shoes. accept wet legs and feet for an hour until you dry out. this is for my commute to work, btw. if you're just riding for pleasure or sport, just be wet. nothing you do will save you from your own sweat.
why no nobody will buy one of these

My chinesium, nth hand, hand me down bike broke, again, so I want to replace it with a folding bike since I commute by train everyday; I also do evening deliveries on my bike (yes I'm poor) so the daily km tally is quite high. For that reason I want to avoid the cheapest, crappiest bikes to be found on Amazon and I'm willing to spend (a little) extra for a bike that somewhat reliable.

I live in Euroland. All I know about folding bikes is that Decathlon sells a few models and while they're decent quality for the price I should avoid the cheapest one. Anyone familiar with Decathlon Tilt 500 or 900 models? Any reason to prefer one over the other?

I've ran over a cat with my Peugeot, I didn't stop but I remember that I was worried afterwards that I might have hurt her
One time I ran over a possum. Front tire missed him, rear tire got him.
Broke his spine. I looked back, and his hips were turned to the sky, legs motionless, trying to scrabble away with just his arms.
Had to go back and slit his throat. It was the merciful thing to do.

But yeah, I hope that cat was alright.
no, because im not 15 anymore
