Aerial tramways, gondolas, ropeways, etc.

I think they are quite sex.

>I would rather not my last moments be spent in abject terror
Unless you die in your sleep, that's going to happen anyway.
I was hit by a car last year pretty good - I walked away with minor injuries, but had I not worn a helmet I may well have died from it (landed at least partially on my head). There was no time to be scared, only a fight or flight type panic response as I glimpsed the inevitable for a split second and in the next I was cartwheeling.

A plane falling from 40,000 feet in an aerodynamic stall still takes time to hit the ground, maybe not so long for a lift accident but yeah those things can be very uncomfortable even when everything is fine - I close my eyes for segments of the most confronting lifts.

Ebikes should require registration and an active insurance policy. $15 million in liability insurance per bike, minimum, to cover the average damage they do every time they explode. That doesn't even cover the loss of life but it's a start. Possession of an unregistered ebike or unregistered parts such as batteries should be a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years in prison and being banned from touching another ebike ever again. Second offense is life in prison, you can't prove me wrong.

bizarre post
This thread was made by the schizo who singlehandedly ruined the electric mobility general so it doesn't even exist anymore
He has a deranged hatred of most electric vehicles and would spend, no joke, 16-18 hours a day replying to every single post in /emg/ with very angry, confrontational or downright facetious nonsense. No conversations could ever happen because he would just derail the thread as soon as he could.

Now that /emg/ is gone, he just sits making bait threads of his own and will reply to every single post in them with hateful shite about electric vehicles. Some of them will show just how deranged and unironically schizophrenic he is, like >>1950236

Where do I get a structured training plan for cycling?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Buy Joe Friel's book, read Joe Friel's blog on the internet, read Tom Bell's blog on the internet, find a coach and pay him to tell you what to do, etc etc.
judging by your picture, I assume you're latin american. I don't know the state of roads there, but try doing some kilometres (20 is a nice start) and see if you are tired the next day. If not, do some more etc.
Shut up fat white guy
A minimum “structured” plan would be rotating between days of short, intense sessions and longer, easier sessions, with some intervals. But it varies a lot depending on what your goals are.

Britishcycling has some ok training plans for free, if you want inspiration. https://www.macmillan.org.uk/fundraise/charity-cycle-rides/training-plans

If you want to be more serious about it, follow what the other anon said and read Joe Friels The Cyclist Training Bible. That will give you a in-depth knowledge of how to set up a plan.
Easiest way is to join your local cycling/triathlon club.

My local club does interval sessions twice a week and long weekend rides. Just ride with fast riders, try to stick with them, go consistently and you'll get better.

back to our feature presentation: picrel is the bag I use. It's the current state of an iteration of increasingly less retarded setups I've tried but at the same time I didnt find the solution yet.
The current bag clips on top of the matching panniers by means of buckles. I like this system, it attaches fast, secure and is adjustable. The bag is not waterproof by any means because zipper and seams. Also, as expected from first looking at it, it's starting to fail due to tear out. I 2ould guess I've gotten 280 days of use out of it so far.

I support OPs move to ban all motorised motorised means of transport. It is for the weak, cripples, elderly and other degenerates. It harms people through direct and indirect action. It causes athrophy and comfort addiction.

I browse subito regularly for old MTB parts and I've seen plenty of +20" frames.

Here's a good deal btw if in your area. I've had an older Team Marin in that size (19") and it was perfectly fine for me at 6ft1.

>I've seen plenty of +20" frames

Lucky you.
there were special handmade 26" mtb for basketball players. The had ridiculously long head tubes.
The only common sense approach would be to have multiple size for adults, same way as for kids. Anything else makes no sense, but you're just being rammed 29 down your throat like that's that size that fits everyone and everything like a magical shoe.

Why are american metros and railways so slow?

Came across this video and while it is fascinating, its fucking insanity how arduously slow the train is. It's like American fat slow-walkers decided to make their trains just as slow too.

americans city are planned for cartards primarily which is dodo imo :/
>wide angle lens
>view from the front
>"y trein so slo tho durr"
They’re not always that slow. MTA trains go about 55mph at full speed. But yes they are slow often
But honestly how often do they REALLY go 55?
Usually its like 25 at most. It's better than it used to be, but what the fuck

>Perfect distance for HSR

>Would be probably faster to build then the current CAHSR line,too

people go between LA and SD much more frequently than between LA and SF. If this shit ever gets fully built out, it will mostly function as regional transit anyways. San Bernardino to LA and Gilroy to SF will likely be the busiest segments

My mostly og 87/ Trek, recent upright handlebar swap for comfy cruiser feel riding. I like old original stuff, kinda time capsule stuff, so it wasn't a easy decision to swap out the old drops and hoods. Not sure about the black Surly bars but the Nitto'sI had are too narrow.
>Not sure about the black Surly bars
there are hundreds of silver Northroads bars out there
had the surly's already, (3 pairs laying around even) they are just a test to see how the bike would ride/feel.
woah, they also made trains? I know they also make motorcycles, some of the most advanced motorcycle tech too

ITT: Post things that help your body cope with the demands of cycling.
I'll start. Doctor prescribed picrel when the PFPS became unbearable. I couldn't walk. I considered it a meme, a frail thing like that can not do shit. I was wrong. I don't care which if any of the speculative mechanisms did improve my condition. If it's just nervous so be it, nerves are part of me, part of the body.
Which tweaks to the bike, your fit, gear or changes in habits helped you manage pain, exhaustion and accumulated damage ?

foam roller is the best $20 ive ever spent
Well I haven't ever tried cranks of any other length than 'what came with the bike', 'had lying around' or 'the shop had'. That being said, if I am not completely wrong and any argument based on the involved biomechanics can be made (I am not exactly sure which it would be) then I am certain it would point to optimal crabk length being a function of inseam length and not body height.
Add to that the strong suspicion that this supposed 'optimum' is actually a sweet spot of power generation, ROM and wellbeing.
I find having active alternatives to the bike that use diffrent parts of the body help when feeling sore.
I love riding my kick scooter on non-bike days.
I am still active, still get where I need to go, but can give parts of my body sore from biking a rest for a day or two. That way I can stay healthy while riding hard several times a week.
Any advice for this. Have the tightest fucking hips and it band where rotating the socket just cracks all the damn time. It's fucking upp my knees when I do long rides.
Same here. Especially the first kilo in the morning that thing just goes bam bam bam. Blasting right out of the gate probably doesn't help.
What I am doing, daily, as much as I can are hamstring stretches (tilt pelvis forward, its not about roubding the back), runners quad streteches (tilt pelvis back, squeeze glutes), 90 90 hip rotations, attempted pancakes, attempted middle and front splits, long resting squats, pidgeon pose. Sadly I can not tell you it fixed much, I cant either be sure it does improve much because if anything it's just keeping the firced downtime away.

why is that women never notice you coming when you pass them on your bike? a lack of spatial awareness? are they mentally incapable of filtering out nearby noise and impressions from those afar? or is it a conscious decision to block everything out? are they too self-absorbed and dependent on others to sense any threat?

whenever i pass a couple on my bike the boyfriend ALWAYS has to lead his chick out of the way like she's an invalid. the dude almost always notices you coming, women never do. why is it so hard for them to turn their head and acknowledge their surroundings?

That picture is what cultural marxists mean when they talk about "inclusion".
Who do pedastrians feel the need to panic when they hear a bike coming at them from behind? I can see you before you can see me, you retard, of course I will ride around you, dont strafe into my path
I always muster the deepest, loudest, rapey-ist voice and scream ON YOUR LEFT
You would think incels would be more into "cultural marxism" since it supposedly entitles them to other people's property and women's vaginas are the property of some scrote, why are they like this?

How are they able to pull such a good value on bikes? They have to cut corners somewhere right? Are their bikes built by children in Cambodia or something?

And I trust this site to not just tell me get a bike or call me a faggot.

I’m a long haul trucker and get to park in truck stops 6 miles (10km) out of major cities in US and Canada, did the walk once. Took 3 hours. Got a folding bike, miserable bringing it on and off the truck. Looking for a halfway decent scooter that isn’t too big to be a hassle to bring on and off the truck, but has some decent battery, doesn’t need to be 50 miles+

Thank you, also these prices are in CAD not USD, but I can buy from a us store too
>Best Buy
if you're a trucker I assume you make enough to not cheap out. get the max G2. check other places though, you can also get segways on aliexpress. don't forget to get a bell/lights for it and wear a helmet with a chin guard from a proper brand with crash rating. you do NOT want to be unprotected falling off these things. also the suspension on all the cheaper scooters can not handle serious bumps, so hopefully your route is very flat asphalt
