Does anyone else place their foot toward the rear of the pedal? It feels more efficiently to me, otherwise the ankle joint is articulating too much. Toward the rear of the pedal, is a straight-ish line form my knee.

Interesting

Early adopters of technology are the dumbest human beings on the planet, motivated exclusively by their desire to CONSOOM product in a manner slightly different from their peers.
Prove me wrong (protip: you can't.)

One nuance though - those that take new technologies and adopt them for convenient CONSOOMing by the retarded masses are genius salesmen.
Also, note how they never use their own retarded "innovations".

Not him but basically traditional franchising where the operator takes ticket receipts and pays the DfT for the franchise is dead.
All future franchising will take the Overground/Govia Thameslink route where private businesses are paid a fixed fee to operate the railways but the government takes the ticket money and thus the profits or losses.

>Also, one of the benefit they cited for using regular mobile network is "faster recovery time after e.g. typhoon due to reduced number of equipment need to be checked"
On THEIR end.
The question is, if the mobile network operator thinks of the availability of its service along the line as critical as the railway infrastructure operator.
It will focus on the 都会 for the recovery, not the 田舎. Without a contractual partnership, that includes penalties, this whole project is utterly irresponsible.

I know your pain. I stick to Hatton's because of their trunk service. Every few months I ship mine out using DHL so I get it in like 2 days.

Rails of Sheffield is also pretty decent if there's a sale but unlike hattons they don't tell you what the shipping cost is until after you've ordered, and there's no trunk option.

Yeah, I love the new trunk service. I tried Rails of Sheffield, since Hattons doesn't have new Bachmann anymore, but I found there prices are a bit high.

Did you see Hornby's new app based DC controller? According to them:
Four operating accessories or point motors maybe connected to each PAC unit with the power being supplied by a separate wall mounted transformer. It is possible to connect up to three PAC units to one transformer but this does depend on how much power is being taken by the accessories. Consequently, it may be necessary to add a further power unit.

>Still going to need catalytic converters.
Not necessarily. Large diesels only use 2-way cats, to deal with CO and hydrocarbon emissions - neither of which is present with ammonia as fuel. For NOx control, they usually use EGR to keep combustion temps down, and fluid injection to take care of the rest. You know what fluid they use?

Ammonia.

Just get a beater bike for commuting and never leave your fancy road bike locked up anywhere out of sight for more than five minutes. You can even add stuff like fenders or a kickstand without feeling bad about it.

Alternatively have your bike insured so getting it stolen is just a good excuse to get a newer bike. My home insurance covers bike theft up to 2000 euros.

I own this exact cordless anglegrinder.
While it does cut steel rather quickly, it's VERY loud.
You won't use such a tool for stealing shit as it will alert everyone in the area.
A bolt-cutter is the bike thiefs tool of choice as it's rather silent.

Because they stick out just enough that you can't do normal parking with the bike.

>you can't do normal parking with the bike

>>
>>1637283
Have you ridden with one? Those trailers generally suck to ride with because they cause slack action, limit how tight of a circle you can steer, and they can jackknife on fast descents or when braking hard. They're fine for casually riding around and pulling kids, and super useful for carrying heavy loads in certain contexts, but they come with enough drawbacks that you wouldn't want one on a long or spirited ride. Plus, who needs to carry that much cargo when touring? You can put some BIG panniers on most bikes and those do have some drawbacks too, but nowhere near as bad.

As other anon said, apparently the one-wheel Bob trailers are easier to ride with, but that's still a relatively expensive and complicated way to haul more cargo than most tourists need, which is why they're a niche item, not popular.
