May 4: An Embraer EMB-120 (5Y-AXO), a medical flight carrying supplies to Bardale, Somalia, is shot down on approach, the second shootdown of a flight this year. Ethiopian soldiers at the scene mistakenly believed that the plane was a kamikaze and ordered the shootdown. All six on board are killed.

What we know:
>The repeated chime at 9:32:52am (the pilot said "Roger, Pakistan 8303") after the plane has been cleared to land is the Airbus engine fire alarm. You can hear it in this simulation video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8Hi8KN4sNo. This points to possible engine problems PRIOR to the landing.
>This picture is one of two pictures taken by a plane spotter, taken after the go-around. Rumors claim the plane did not extend its gears and that the black marks are scratchings. I think this is not the case, because there should be tail-scrapes as well. The blackening is clearly the flameout. You can also see the ram air turbine extended (a backup generator) in place of the engines.
>The chime at 9:35:37am is supposedly the Airbus master caution tone.
>The CCTV video shows that the landing gear was extended, ruling out jammed or stuck gear prior to landing
>There are claims that this was a bird strike.

I have a friend that would have grown up to be a little person except she was given growth hormones as a kid. She's 5' tall with a 25 inch inseam (floor to crotch). Long torso, short legs.

Even something like an Xtra Small frame Surly Bridge Club, which has a stand over height of 27.9", is too tall for her. Pic related.

Is there any kind of non-child bike she could ride? Are there some modifications one could do to a Surly Bridge Club XS that would lower the stand over height just a few inches? Maybe run it with smaller diameter wheels or something?

I don't want to spam the thread with mini velo images, so I made a quick collage to show that they can be "normal looking", esp with a smaller rider.

Since they mostly draw from the pool of bmx tires, many of them take at least 2", which is enough cushion for something like Katy Trail, NBRT, GAP, etc.

Not OP, but I'm short (5'4" ish) with short legs, about a 26 inch inseam to the floor.

Is there any chance of getting a standard sized bike with 700c tires?

Pic of tits?

>>1490739
I already replied in the other thread, but something like this could fit the bill. 25.5" standover height. If you dropped the tires from 700x35 to 32 or 28 you'd gain a little extra standover height.

Is it alright to consider solid rubber tires for my touring bicycle? Where I live, there are miniature caltrops fucking everywhere because the handymen, housebuilders, roofers, etc in the area seem to just LOVE losing random nails or throwing glass bottles on the curb as they drive by. This is the 4th time I am changing out a rear flat in 3 months and getting kind of sick of it. First was a half-inch rusty nail up to the head in the tire. The second was a piece of glass that slit the tire but fell back out. Third was an 1/8" glass splinter that was fully embedded in the tire. Starting to see why there is only one bike shop in a 50 mile radius.
>>
>>1491271
What size tyres do you currently, what pressures are you running them at, and what's the rough weight of you+bike/gear?
>>
>>1491271
modern touring bike tires like schwalbe marathon plus are said to be almost bulletproof
>>
>>1491765
Marathon plus weighs almost a kilo per tire at 35c, I'd rather the bullet. Go for the Supremes which are half that unless you really never ever can deal with a flat.
>>
>>1491781
yeah i think he's blowing the issue out of proportion. if there's a spot with glass shards he could clean it up or ask his local government to do it. he definitely shouldn't get solid rubber tires.

trains is hard job
>>
>>1490632
hard part is that middle management is breath down ur neck about muh mpgs
so you have to install some automated software that adjusts the train speed for best fuel economy
but the problem comes where the software does not know about the momentum required to get up certain hills and corners at a given tonnage
so either you ignore the computer and speed up where its needed or you obey and get stuck on a hill
>>
Being an engineer would be a great job for certain types of people IF NOT FOR constant micromanagement and a ridiculous bureaucracy created by managers and the government, both of whom justify their jobs with a neverending stream of new rules and means to watch/spy on you while you work. Now it just plain sucks, there's no pride and no respect. Only upside is good pay but you'll eventually max that out and always have to live with the threat of furloughs, not to mention working on call most of your career.

I'm not super slow, but my recumbent is designed more for the comfort and less for the speed.
So it is only about as fast as a TT-bike, but about as comfy as it gets with full fenders, suspension, lights, dynamo, geared hub and a basket.
Meaning my average speed is usualy round about a comfy 30 km/h.

Nah, velomobiles are to bulky. This in other hand is comparable to a road bike. Imagine commuting at 45kmp on a piece of tech without engine and big as a bike.

Redpill me on Kona bikes, are they good? Or just overpriced shit?

From a European perspective, Surly and Kona are just priced whatever the fuck the seller wants and it's usually double what a European frame goes for.

What gives? What makes them special? Only thing I notice is that reddit consoomers like to jerk each other off because they like this Product™.

newbie here, any opinions on the aventon cordoba as a beginner city bike? I know it has limitations being fixed gear but to me the ease of use seems the best cause I don't even know if I'll stick to it or not.

They'll either scrap all of them and just replace them with a more easily maintained uniform fleet or keep the Dinky Arrows around and hold onto a few retired Arrows as parts donors for as long as they last.
My money's on replacement; the Arrows aren't historically significant enough to warrant keeping around past their usable service life
