My favorite part of Mentour Pilot's coverage is when he outlines the steps taken by the aviation industry to respond to each incident. It gives me the good feels that every incident is a learning experience to prevent future ones.

pretty new german channel

started making "aero news" about accidents new planes etc. but now got his license and flies middle range for condor and is allowed to keep a go pro back in the cockpit.
he then later comments the flights with lots of technical details about the challenges on that flight and what he considered to get a safe flight.
well in the posted video we see 15min of her eating, in the gym dressing etc and 10s of her pressing some buttons in a plane and 10s view of a cockpit.

from that video i cant say if she even is a pilot or just lapping and i am not going to watch any more.
To be fair, I only do about 15 mins of "work" per flight. Not the hardest job in the world. The only real work you will have to do is micromanaging the rampers/other airport workers when they don't want to work (only seems to be an issue at large hubs). I gave up on that, because it became apparent that $10/hr won't make them give a shit.

Do you ride alone? Is it asking for problems if you're not doing anything really hardcore?

fork has arrived :)
bery exited
wheels are off my gfs bike just for show
Nice. What's the plan for it?

>853 reynolds
saw a jamis dragon pro with 853 reynolds on it for 150usd.
Damn good deal but I really don't need a hardtail like that.
the plan is to build it into a working bike as cheap as i can
kinda oldschool
gonna do a 2x11 drivetrain i think
friction thumb shifters
mechanical disks cos im sick of my hydros
gonna get a hassins rear hub from aliexpress with 120 engagement points
the cheapest cable operated dropper i can get
gonna bastardize this fancy fork and frame with lots of chinese crap basically
my goal is just to make a simple fun very capable bulletproof bike with all the stuff i like about the vintage mtbs i grew up on and the stuff i like about modern mtbs
its gonna take a while though im really lacking on tools and money for parts atm
i also have like 3 other project bikes im working on at the same time
>2x11 oldschool or cheap
kek 3x8 is ultimate cheap+old school since you get a tougher chain+enough range.
>friction thumb
neat I guess
>mech disk
get some dual piston ones or something quality. Hate shitty cheap mechanical disks and prefer hydro's, particularly mineral oil since they take less maintenaince.
>aliexpress high engagement
oh for techy climbs and shit?
>cable dropper
used you can find cheap droppers, at least I can.

Sounds good man. Look for deals on amazon or ebay too. I just got an azonic stem+780mm bar for 50 bucks. non-chinese stuff can be found cheap if you know what to search for.
2x11 will give you tons of gearing. On a 26 I like run a 42/29 and it's good for 2x9. You will have tons of options with 2x11.
Whatever you do make sure your wheels are strong enough. I find hardtails/ridgids are pretty rough on wheels when you send it.
>get some dual piston ones or something quality
yeah i havnt decided what calipers to use yet but definitely duel piston
>oh for techy climbs and shit?
i do alot of climbing really steep hills so im gonna optimize the bike specifically for that
>used you can find cheap droppers, at least I can.
yeah im scouring ebay for parts
>Whatever you do make sure your wheels are strong enough.
yeah i think im gonna build them myself

It is feasible for anyone with some resources to develop improvements in small footprint vehicles that enables high density, independent routing, comfort, safety and speed at the same time.

For rail that requires wide social coordination to overcome its issues, generally either the larger society automatically enables its use, or a smaller group seize power and apply tyranny against the rest of society. I do not support the latter.

From a market mechanism perspective, a user fee correlating to usage of scarce land for vehicle use should fix a big part of the free rider problem that resulted in the popularity of vehicles designed with inefficient footprint for cargo moved.

Do you have a bell on your bicycle?

Why, or why not?

Stupid cagers. Senses as weak as the body.
Have the stock one on, I think of it only as a last resort if I can't stop or move out of the way for whatever reason since pedestrians and motorists (if they even notice it) get really pissed off as soon as they hear a bike bell around them here even if they're clearly in the wrong.
>Do you have a bell on your bicycle?
>Why, or why not?
Had one but barely used it.
When it broke I never bothered to replace it and haven't been in a situation where I really missed it.
Where I ride being visible and using hand signals and body laugage is way more important and useful. Nobody can hear a little bell over traffic noise, and the places quiet enough for the bell to be heard, like on bike trails, are quiet enough that I can just speak using a normal outdoor voice and be heard just fine.

Seriously though, it's best to operate on the assumption that cars can't hear your bell at all, because usually they can't in my experience.
Ride defensively and ride like you are both invisible and can't be heard unless you make eye contact with the driver to know for a fact that they can see you.

What does /n/ think of tomorrow's upgraded, more inclusive bike lanes? Cagetrolls will hate this, but I for one think it is perfectly reasonable for bike lanes to be open to any vehicle that doesn't have an ICE or require a Class A CDL to operate legally.

Discuss bike apparel. What does /n/ wear? I find it difficult to find something I'm truly happy with.

-Assos - flimsy shit for anorexic freaks, designs are eye rape
-Gore - cut for obese diabetic golf dads, designs are so boring I want to kms
-Rapha - the bose of cycling gear, dead giveaway that you have no idea what you're doing
-Castelli - probably the least terrible from an objective point of view but the logo is way too in your face
-MAAP - wannabe rapha cringlelord gear
-Le Col - another wannabe rapha, the only thing worse than Rapha is wanting to be rapha
-Santini - completely nonsensical sizing, either baggy shit for obese people or ridiculous midget shit even though it's the same nominal size, bibs are way too thin, might as well just wear women's panthose
-La Passione - changes their designs every 10 seconds for no reason, takes about a decade to do an RMA that would take no more than 2 weeks from anyone else
-Black Bibs - ali express tier garbage and permanently smells like a wet dog after 2 rides

What we can conclude here is that it all sucks except Castelli and I'm sick and tired of wearing all castelli all the time, anyway I ask again what does /n/ wear? Post your likes and hates. Oh I forgot giro, giro isn't too bad for casual "urban cyclist" stuff. Haven't tried their real bike gear in a loooooong time though. A long time.

This dude is correct.
Depending on what the brainlet wants to communicate here brainlet is wrong.
Idk for sure what they prefer for frames, perhaps grade 6 because so many can't weld shit, but since I can pull some numbers right outta my ass let's just assume they use 6-4. Strenght times elasticity or strength divided by what you guys call youngs modulus, I believe, would give 10^9 Pa / 120•10^9 Pa so 0,008. Do the same for say 4130 and we probably get 10^9 Pa / 200•10^9 Pa so 0,005. I'm ignoring stiffness on purpose here as I don't want ro get into eternal discussions about what an 'equivalent' section of tube was. But in terms of strength / modulus the winner is clear. For the same geometry, offering the same strength, steel would be almost twice as stiff.

A woman who is in a sexual relationship with an aeroplane has revealed that she travelled abroad 30 times in the last year just to spend quality time with her lover.

Sarah Rodo, from Dortmund, Germany, found love on her first flight with a Boeing 737 - after an unfulfilling attempt to date humans.

Since then, the 23-year-old has also 'met' 60 figurines and three larger models who she considers part of a 'collective being' that she is dating, and so she often refers to her lovers as one.

Keeping up a relationship with an object requires real commitment.

The avid jet-setter is so loved up that she has booked 30 mini-breaks in the last 12 months just to be close to her original beau, the Boeing 737.

Despite their many trips together, Sarah, who identifies as objectum sexual [having a sexual or romantic attraction to an inanimate object], is heartbroken that she's never been fully alone with her partner.

Sarah said: 'I'm proud to be objectum sexual – it's a wonderful sexuality, the only sad thing is that I can't be alone with a real plane.

'I flew a lot in the last year to be with the Boeing as often as I possibly could, I took about 30 flights and always combined it with a city trip or vacation.

>Keeping up a relationship with an object requires real commitment.

I almost said these are the smartest words to come out of a womans mouth but it appears they are a troon.
what she is doing is a crime against the environment and by extension humanity. She could also be into a plane and not fly in it, wasting ressources and producing emissions. There is nothing wrong with bicycles. Also not with using them. Quite the opposite. A man can use a bicycle without causing others irritation or harm and the more he uses it the fitter he gets. Unlike means of motorised transport.
>what she is doing is a crime against the environment
>Sarah Rodo, from Dortmund, Germany
Of course she's German.

Rim brakes are superior to hydraulic disk brakes and I'm tired of pretending they're not.

1. Light
2. Fully self-serviceable
3. Reliable
4. Better wheel feedback

Mass adoption of disk brakes was nothing short of disastrous for cycling tech.

>as soon as its actually raining you and your bike are getting soaked no matter what

road spray is dirty it's different than rain. Also with a raincoat on it takes a long time to soak through the bottom of your undies just from rain.
this is probably the biggest reason that I rarely ride on the road
i hate not being able to relax or zone out and the quality of driving in my country is significantly lower than the UK or most of northern Europe where I'm from, which was already bad enough
Fenders work great here. When mountain biking it helps keep my bike clean, and reduce the mud content in my face.

On my road bike it works good but tends to rub too much so I abstain.
bike commuter here
fenders do an amazing job at stopping dirt and debris from getting on your ass/crotch
No, they don't stop you from getting wet, especially if its actively raining

I hated commuting without fenders as I would often have to change as soon as I arrive
i actually find it kinda zen riding amongst cars
feels very freeing zilently zooming around the cagies and making the most of my maneuverability
maintaining momentum
asserting my place on the road when it would be dangerous to overtake me
taking shortcuts
its fun
that said im only riding in rural english towns and backroads so its probably not at all the same as a city in (god forbid) america
btw that cyclist in the video is an idiot on multiple levels
hes positioned badly
hes too close to the car
his fingers werent already on the brakes
and he tried to turn the wrong fucking way
if you ride safely and dont do any of the things he did then you can relax

ighs all have a specific minimum input ratio and maximum amount of tourque they can take
its listed in their specifications and exceeding it will easily break it
you realize the inside of an igh is full of teeeny little gears and lots of other small components that can only be so strong even if theyre made of very strong material
>ighs all have a specific minimum input ratio and maximum amount of tourque they can take
that is true for any type of transmission system

IGHs still handle more torque on the daily than a cassette/chain can, and they won't wear out within a few thousand km on a mid-drive ebike
Why would anyone want to go down on the ratio anyways. A shimano 7 for example, if you set it up at the minimum permissible ratio (they probably assume 172.5 mm meme cranks) will never see first, second or third gear on any climb. Check the manual.
>IGHs still handle more torque on the daily than a cassette/chain can
that statement doesnt make any sense
yeah no that things gear range is still shit

When (((they))) fix something that worked perfectly fine for you, the user, it must have bot been working for (((them))).
If you want skinnytube vintage headtube aesthetic, external. If you want chonky modern headtube aesthetic, internal. If you want chonky modern headtube aesthetic AND to have zero replacement options and nearly proprietary bearings, integrated.
