Do you even realize we are living in the golden e-bike period?
In most places it's completely legal and socially accepted to have no license, no registration, no helmet, and no armor.
>All the things that made motorcycles great in early part of 20th century are now here in e-bike form.
Just an affordable, liberating, fun and casual way to get around.
>Have you taken the e-bike pill anons?
It's only a mater of time Karens and nannies bring the hammer down, enjoy it now!

I have electric and gas fun rides
The nicest things they'll allow you is a vr headset and a pod. And you'll have to share those.
hell yeah those do look fun. I don't even ride ebikes but nice job with the conversions.
I live in Canada and I own a 50kmph ebike with no reflectors

I ride it in pitch black places all the time, more than 50% of the time and it's never gotten me in trouble, just slow down a bike around cops and don't be a fucking prick and nothing will happen.
8kw even, not that you'll find quality controller for it, but yeah no problem.

>ascended ebike rider
God I hate you stupid fuckers. I ride a fixed gear 20 miles a day, 250 days a year through 4 seasons. I spend more on snacks than an automobilist on gas. Do you really think I give a fuck about how much my rig cost me? Or how much I spend on wearing parts? Or how sweaty I am when I arrive to a fancy pancy meeting?

I despise every single stupid motherfucker in the traffic, fast, slow, cyclist, car, e-scooter, you name it, but I hate e-bikers the most because their monkey brains didn't adapt to the technological evolution fast enough. They slam their bike to oncoming traffic before their mind catches up and tells them they should apply the brake.

Yes I hate my fucking acid rig but don't you ever think I'm not having the time of my life riding it.
God I hate fat ebike riders
Why are cyclist so full of rage all the time? Why can't they just enjoy their lives?

Actually I live in the Southeast, I’m just going off what’s on Amtrak’s website
That looks comfy
How have I not tried buffalo mac n cheese?
Do it, unless you have some kind of time constraints. That kind of distance is bearable on Amtrak coaches. I’m surprised it’s cheaper as there’s always some kind of discount airline ticket cheaper than Scamtrak. Bring food as they may not even have a proper dining car, and some form of intoxication if that’s your thing. You’ll meet interesting people and enjoy the rare experience of long distance American rail travel.
Its' near nothing and there are no sidewalks going to it, because nimbys didn't want them.

End of summer edition

Last thread

Can't have /n/ without a proper touring thread.

Now that summer is almost over, is anyone planing on doing tours in autumn?

If you're going to cycle for 8hr straight at 10mph minimum you could do it. I think that's realistic for a 1 way short tour, doing that every day would be exhausting unless you're adept at it.
80 miles is not a huge deal at all and people frequently do 80 mile trips and longer. doing it several days in a row is another matter.
With my bike, loaded (55.12lbs / 25kg), I do 45 to 50 miles per day (75/50 km) with usually 1000 feet (300m) to climb and some day with the wind.
If I wanted, I could probably do more, but I prefer to rest and be able to ride multiple days without breaking my body.
Then again that's with a touring bike loaded.
I know some people that do a shiton of miles per day during 2 weeks but unloaded and with a carbon bike.

80 seems a bit unrealistic since you're on the touring thread and without experience. You can always take your bike a try such a distance.

Another thing about Warsaw, it has three big stations with very similar names.
The naming schemes must be a nightmare for foreigners
Let's start with Warszawa Główna (Warsaw Main)
It's a terminus station in the vinicity of Plac Zawiszy. Name is pretty inaccurate
Parallel to it runs the Warsaw diameter line and a train stop Warszawa Ochota named after the district it's in, along with a separate commuter rail's platform with the same name
The tram and bus stops are named Plac Zawiszy.
So three separate names for one place
Maybe they want to develop these villages into cities.
1 km east of that, on the diameter line...

Warszawa Centralna (Warsaw Central)
It only serves intercity trains
Tram and bus station is named Dworzec Centralny but at least the voice announcement says "Warsaw Central railway station"
The aformentioned commuter railway, WKD, has its terminus 200 metres to the west and it's not called Warszawa Centralna WKD but Warszawa Śródmieście WKD

252 KB PNG
200-500 metres east of that...

Warszawa Śródmieście (Warsaw Downtown)
It only serves local and regional trains
It's close to the North-South running metro station and bus and tram stops all named Centrum

despite them being close and both underground, there is no direct link between the railway and metro station
Basically all the rail lines in south east London, due to competing companies early on duplicating routes and lines due to business politics.

E.g. catford and catford bridge stations are 150m apart but the two lines do not have a junction or link

Pinpoint the motorway that required the demolition of Euston, yankee.
Settle down. This thread was, after all, about the demolition of Penn Station.
You replied to a post about Euston.
Perhaps the person was talking in general terms, rather than absolute. Please don't be pedantic.
If that were the intention then the post would either reply to nothing or reply to OP, not to a specific post about a particular location that received similar treatment but under completely different circumstances.

this is a very good suggestion. the us specced version has a 8speed wide rear casette and a 1x.
literally none of these suggestions are good.
why don't you give one then
if you could spend a little more and get a mid drive motor you wont be disappointed. otherwise what >>1853834 recommended. ride1up is really good bang for buck
Consider your use case OP and decide if a folding bike will make your life significantly easier by allowing storage inside. The greater theft protection may also allow you to spend more. I almost pulled the trigger on converting a dahon mariner with a bafang middrive until I got a random great deal on a second hand bike.

Amerifat here, I'm trying out a Train Sim game for the first time and god damn this is what your trains look like, Germany?

It's a god damned space ship.

Read the online tutorial on German safety systems in Train Sim World and try driving with them. Makes it way more challenging and interesting.
Better yet, this is how all European locos built after 2010 look like, the only difference is the amount of monitors (two to four). You know how to drive one, you can drive'em all.
But that's the same with the modern US locos, innit?
The interior design doesn't need to reflect that.

Do you have deliveroo in Straya? How flat are strayan cities? Is it possible to live off deliveroo in Straya and save money to invest in a third world country?
i've only been to brisbane and yeah id say the city part is pretty flat

Yes I need a "granny gear"

Campagnolo has great technologies but they lack adoption. Take N3W freehub bodies.
>can take 9t cogs
>backward compatible 9 to 13 speed with adapter
Shimano and SRAM create 10 different hub standards, and yet the third party suppliers creating competition and driving down costs are producing parts for them. Chinese groupset manufacturers go for shimano and sram standards as well.

die cager
Was this the big strategic mistake to not become a full range component manufacturer?
Better to die pure than to have to resort to selling m*untain biking equipment
all namefags except baconrider should be banned

i like 135mm BCD chainrings, i have purchased old used campy square taper cranksets for all of my bikes
Apparently the upcoming 2x13 electronic groupset will be part wireless like new di2, we'll see what they cook up. Some people on the weightweenies forum claimed that a pro team was testing prototype groupsets in a training camp earlier this year, maybe they'll release it next year.
I don't really see the point in 2x13 but gotta have one more cog I guess. Even 2x12 doesn't really add anything of value for me and I use the whole cassette every ride. It'll be pretty hard to match current gen di2 in terms of shifting speed and quality, it seems that 12 speed shimano cassettes have new ramps or something on them which makes downshifting even smoother, especially under load.

I fuckin' love doing the tour at Tempelhof.
Grand Central Air Terminal in Glendale, California. Most of the site was redeveloped into a campus by Disney Studios and also a business park, with the air traffic tower (picrel) preserved as a museum. The runway became "Air Way" a regular street and you would never know if you didn't see the tower.
I think OK city is turning there’s into a walkable new urbanist neighborhood
