Ocean liner fans rejoice! The Queen Mary reopened for hotel guests in May and in June, I had the privilege of spending two nights on board. I'll be uploading my album of the ship over the next few days and discussing the history of the ship that I learned while onboard.

zip ties are great for smaller loads but not larger, i zip tied a milk crate to the rear rack thingy and the zip ties broke with a heavy textbook, hose clamps worked well until the bike got stolen.

I listen to my bike while riding.
Agreed. Music is for training, doing a hard ride when you want to isolate yourself and focus on the exercise.
Music is not for enjoying your lovely relaxing leisure ride. Listen to the birds and enjoy some alone time in your own head without the sounds of someone else drowning out your thoughts and the world around you

Ironic ending. RIP to both pilots.
how are there no videos of the crash?
spectacular mid air collision, fireball, that's how you want to go out.
IMO air races are kinda boring, you are just watching few planes fly around in circle for few min. We only have potato vision footage of this race, thats how much people care. You'd think the organizers would pay for videography and shill the shit out of the last ever of the most iconic air race in human history.

It's NYC. Everything costs more there.
Most of the expense comes from the fact that they have to dig under the Hudson river and the bedrock of New York is basically solid fucking granite.
Tunnelcels can't stop losing.
>new tunnel will have a stupid amount of curves limiting top speed
but why
I presume the original tunnel is in such bad shape that they didn't want to tunnel too close to it, but that's just a guess. It's on the approach to the station so speeds aren't going to be high anyway

Last year I trained to do go ride in some east coast races but because of an injury I have not been able to actually go, and in the meantime i have dropped cycling again because of this injury. Even though it is not in my (near) future, Id like to hear your experiences.

Airships. They’re just so cool and elegant, so futuristic even today, we all want them to be real. Every decade or so some wealthy enthusiast puts a company together to make the dream, makes some nifty renders, but they never seem to compete with heavier-than-air.
Pic related: airship mast on the Empire State Building. It’s still waiting there…
Didn't I read somewhere that the ESB could never hold blimps anyway? Something about wind and updrafts in Manhattan making maneuvering a nightmare.
Correct, in any case for some reason it was technically unfeasible.

Wasn't the Empire State Building actually used as an airship dock at least a couple times?
I remember reading about this fucker in like a 1998 popular mechanics magazine

Ironically drone tech made it obsolete but also easier to accomplish

I want to surprise my pilot boyfriend with a poster of an embraer airplane project, like these below, but the definition isn't as good as I need to. Post anything related to or if you guys find these in better resolution... Thanks a lot!

Post here for recommendations on a bicycle purchase. Useful tips: include your height, weight, intended riding and budget. Details and a picture are always best.

that brand is crap, it's literally one guy who pretends to have two employees using cheap chinese frames that are not properly made. look for a chromoly steel bike or an aluminium frame and carbon fork, not aluminium fork. the claimed 9.45kg weight is probably for the theoretical weight without frame paint and without pedals or brakes regardless of it being misleading by saying total weight, you can easily get a lighter bike than that on the used market.

this is only 300 euros more for a completely legit bike from a top brand although it's not a fixie but you probably just wanted a singlespeed to save money, you could look at decathlon, used bikes etc.

for example the amount of color options is abnormal for a bike brand, it's style over substance and them exploiting the fixie fad
You made me go check and I now realise that 'FabricBike' is not 'Fabric', makers of the famous Spoon saddle, formerly Charge Bikes.

>you can easily get a lighter bike than that on the used market.
Only if I pay for Fred chariots, which is not what I'm looking for.

I could get a drop-bar Tiagra bike from my LBS for €400, but I want a single-speed because I'll be leaving this bike out in the rain and I don't want to maintain a geared drivetrain under those conditions.

>it's style over substance and them exploiting the fixie fad
Aren't they about ten years late for that? We're way past peak fixie.

Not super interested in buying right now to be honest, but need to calm my autism. Basically just looking for a replacement for the old rigid MTB (pic related). The move towards 1x everything bothers me a lot.

Relatively high gearing for pavement (my old 26" MTB has a 46T front chainring and goes down to 12T on the cassette)
Preferably not 1x, but it's not a deal breaker if the chainring is big enough.
Can fit 2" (50mm) tires for XC riding (maybe 47mm is ok?)
Prefer fully rigid but suspension is fine.
Under $900

I'm thinking gravel / adventure bike? Modern mid-level MTBs don't look like they will meet my needs.
this bike regularly goes on sale on their website for $499

When you see it

I've recently decided that if I'm ever caught in the middle of a plane going down, I will not just sit and wait for the inevitable crash. I'll wait until the cabin is depressurized below 10000 feet, put on the parachute I brought as carry-on, force open the emergency exit door and skydive myself to safety.

What I need to know from you anons is what steps can I take to ensure that I can make my daring escape without getting sucked in to the jet engines?

Ikr? Why don’t they just make the plane out of the same stuff they make the black box out of? These engineers are smol brained.
It's just part of the flying experience.
We're all in this together! All for one and one for all!
300+ destinies bonded together in the common purpose of getting to Las Vegas—dead or alive—to waste money on casinos.
I can't imagine flying any other way. Do you hate freedom and TSA inspections?
Parachutes are completely allowed as checked and carryon luggage.

You just have to worry about getting from your seat to a door while the airplane is bucking around in an emergency, and getting a cabin door open against the internal pressure, and
why don't they put a big parachute on the plane instead of requiring passengers to bring their own?
Everyone assumes that 'plane going down' involves it tumbling out of the sky.
That's really, REALLY rare.

Assuming it's passenger (you're not, say, the pilot), odds are high that most of the time they won't even tell you that there's trouble.

Now if you see it coming down and the order to remain in seats comes up, your best bet is to push past the stewardesses, make for the back exit with the parachute. Don't make it clear it's a parachute- or you'll have to fight off everyone else who wants your parachute.

Strap it on, get to the door, bail. Maybe grab the qt stewardess if it has a passenger strap or something and see if she'll suck you off.
