What transport is free (free as in libre, not free as in gratis), anons?

Any form of PUBLIC KEKSPORTATION isn't welcome.
>forced sharing of a vehicle that smells like hobo shit and rotting blood sausage
Bus.
>forced sharing of a cucktube on rails funded by your money taken at gunpoint by the gubbermint (50% going to pay for the cucktube, and 50% going to minorities)
Train.
>trusting your life to Silicon Valley megacorportations or Chinese sweatshops to not spontaneously combust / shut down at 50km/h
>owned on a subscription-based model half the time - "financing"
"PEV", Electric Unicycle, Electric Scooter, etc.
>trusting your life like a KEK to another man such that he doesn't ram your flying cucktube into a tower
>overpaying for the privilege of doing that
Planes.
>depending on a MASSIVE, globalist supply chain revolving around importing a limited, dwindling resource from various shitholes, controlled by a handful of gubbermints and megacorporations, and an equally MASSIVE globalist supply chain to produce all the parts necessary to make it
Cars (all critiques here are applicable to every other form of transport listed above too.)

I want to say the tricycle is the pinnacle of free transportation.
>can repair it yourself
>cheap to buy outright
>practical, like a car, can add a pretty big trailer to the back, and most have a large "truck" bed in the rear, can haul incredible amounts of shit
>ergonomic seat, can go pretty far without getting tired
>can strap electric or gas engine without much threat of crashing due to inherently better stability when starting and stopping

The bicycle is very good too, but it's unfortunately there's just a higher risk of being invisible on the road (you can put a massive slow vehicle warning sign on the back of a tricycle, a bit tougher to do on the bicycle without sacrificing cargo space.)

you answered your own question bicycles are the only practical libre transport
>>
>>1858262
>manufacturer, consumables and replacement parts rely on a massive global supply chain
Nah your bike is cucked
>>
Velomobile

>made by people that actually understand stuff about practical bicycling
>buy it once, keep it forever
>maintenance free until shit breaks
>enclosed cabin keeps you warm and dry during winter and rainy days
>wind is no problem either thanks to F1 aerodynamics
>when it's hot you just use it cabriolet mode
>can carry stuff with you, elaborate models can carry one passenger
>this shit is Fast and takes 1/3 of the effort you need on a bicycle

Cons

>few manufacturers
>made to order
>expensive (~10k€)
>its bling and attracts attention. And attention attracts thieves
>when shit breaks, it's expensive to fix

Nah, it's more like
>20% to minorities, 20% to the military, 20% to banks/corpos (aka Jews), 20% to boomers, 10% to politicians, 4% to roads, 5.9% to assorted other shit, 0.1% for all public transit.

my tip for trikes is where the basket attaches to the frame, cut up an old tube and wedge small pieces between the frame and basket, then zip tie them down so you have 4 points of that. i'm surprised its not done from the factory but it saves metal slapping into metal when you go over bumps, pic rel

>>1858468
Velomobiles are pretty cool and I even started considering one, but it seems like they're a bit useless for those of us who live in very hilly areas where it gets hot during the summer. The insanely high prices due to low production numbers don't help either, you're getting into entry level economy car territory at that point.

i lowkey like velomobiles as a concept
put an ebike motor solar panels and make it a tandem and itd be based, and maybe go i lil bit more upright with the seating for comfy
these could actually be practical long distance vehicles with some changes

But you lost the advantage of being exposed to the outside air. The only advantage is when it rains, and even then I like not being stuck in a cabin.

it's not like a modern bicycle doesn't need parts from a globalist supply chain

You know this isn’t entirely answering the question but I’ve been trying to find a method of transportation that is pretty reliable and easy to fix even for a retard like me. Also something that I can bring into buildings without getting REEd at but still carry shit with. The conclusion I’ve come to is a nice kick scooter with 12 inch or bigger pneumatic tires. Unfortunately I’m having trouble finding one that’s good and still affordable. Side walker micro looks alright but the very few people online I’ve seen talking about it say the deck is too high and it’s bad. The alternatives are for more complex but more efficient you have a folding bicycle. For more portable and slightly less complex but you’re not gonna be carrying shit outside of a backpack you have inline or quad skates.
>>
>>1859570
Brompton. Theres other good folding bikes but the shopping cart folding mode seems great if you want to bring it inside places without people caring
>>
It appears clearer to me that 50% of those posts about globalists are coming from a single schizo that's spaming every single board.
Once he gets told, the thread dies and he goes somewhere to spam the same shit.

Funny that he didn't even considered walking, doctors say it improves mental health

People leave all sorts of bycicles and even motorehicles outside and employ measures that deterr would be thieves. Why would a recumbent or velo be any different ? In fact its harder to steal a wheel.

Folding motorcycle shelter
I'd show you mine, but some cagenigger decided to plow through the whole lineup of them, totaling a few guys' bikes

Strong Side wind and you bite the ground
More than a little incline is going to be an issue since you are in a recumbent.

>>1858860
they dont need the global supply chain they just use it
if globalism suddenly stopped people who know how would just start making and selling their own parts locally and making local bike companies again and things would continue on
bikes are simple pieces of steel they arent the same as something like a phone which 100% could not exist without the globohomo supplychaino
>>
>>1859570
i have actually been trying to think of something very similar myself
i was basically thinking of hoe you could combine a razor scooter with a brompton and a bmx
basixally imagine fixie with tiny wheels and no seat super short cranks you just stand on the pedals and spin like a bmx
but its nore scooter shaped, like a brompton with no seat
the bike folds like a razor scooter just in half very simple and rugged
litterally the absolute simplest thing ever completely bullet proof and compact
i think itd be alot of fun to ride too
potentially some kind of folding basket could be installed on it somewhere too although i think a backpack would suit this thing more
>>
>>1872068
Cargo Trike like >>1860136 don't have that problem and would be much better for off-roading but you can't really do much off road on a trike without tipping on your ass.
>>
>>1865923
they smell funny
>>
>>1870636
i hate to admit you might be right
>>
>>1872078
i was thinking of buying a regular one and instally fats on it rather than buying a prefat one
and im aware of the difficulties idont intend to be bombing trails
just fitting a giga low range drive train and cranking my way up hills hauling stuff
>>
>>1872070
people can make the insides of a hub, ball bearings and chains? what about derailer?
>>
>>1872088
litterally yes this shit all existed before it was all made in china
>>
>>1872083
Installing fats on to a normal frame is a pretty bad solution. A cargo trike will also have a stronger frame to haul more shit. Some are rated for 450+ pounds and will take a beating better.

Dutch cargo bikes are better imo, they're more agile and probably more fun to ride, also the cargo capacity is a bit higher i think

a single person with a CNC machine could probably do all that in his garage
