ITT: convincing fake transit systems
20 replies and 13 images submitted. Click here to view.
this is of my interests

In 2005, media IT student Christian Bode developed this fake subway system for Bremen as a Bachelor project, including a corporate design study and a website with line maps, fare information, a working trip planner, tourist information and company history.

The (german language) website can be found in the internet archive
The current site is somewhat unmaintained, broken and misses a lot of the fake information.
Sounds like my dream uni project. Too bad my region is already too far along with the transitway corridor planning.

Reminds me of the student who proposed converting Atlanta's beltline into a cool transportation corridor.

I'd expect 20mm tires on a TT bike, never a road bike. 25mm is good, put those on it.
28 commute
23 race
25 race*

Also: you can't /thread yourself, you dip.

I have some noise coming from my rear derailleur, it's easy to notice when I back pedal.

It seems to be at the same point of the chain every time.

I'm pretty certain it's the chain?

I had my chain stuck in my fd and pulled it out hard. Bent my fd but was able to bend it back (this actually happened twice over a few months desu) . I think chain age plus getting stuck in the fd damaged the chain? But I'm not totally sure. Do I sound right in my reasoning? I've only done 1200km but he bike is second Hand, I don't know how many...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Front Derailleur. Friction vs Trigger: which one is better? Trigger because it works on set movements or friction because muh audible feedback when you're not centering the FD? I personally have never tried trigger but I know I hate friction, because it's "guesstimating" shit.
Stop backpedaling. It's incredibly easy to check if you have a kinked chain. You just watch the chain go over the jockeys until you find the one that doesn't sit right. Then you loosen it.

Then don't use friction. Or you could properly set your stops, and use modern ramped and pinned chainrings, and then they really won't seem all that different if you're running a double.

Pic related happened to me yesterday, why was the road cyclist such a dick and why didn't he slow down? Why does he think that because he goes fast he has priority? I'm a regular cyclist myself (normal clothing, normal bike.) but damn, roadcyclists tend to be dicks here.

>riding on the right-hand side

Pram is what brits call baby carriages.

Also, prams are big and cause blindspots, so it often seems okay to pass until its too late, although I would have moved towards the center earlier. Yelling and cursing is a reflex if you end up trying to squeeze between two people. There's no way you can brake in time once you start your pass.
I won't say you did anything wrong, because you didn't, however if I was in your situation I would have been courteous and moved onto the grass for a moment, it was a predictable situation. Also I hope he had a bell, bells are great.

Pics are too blurry to make out id any bike is equipped with Schwalbe professional bike tires
None of my bicycles is currently equipped with Schwalbe tires. However, I did have two Schwalbe Marathon Mondials. One of them got a large puncture from a shard of glass (large enough to cause pinch flats even after removing the glass) so I'm down to one, but I will be acquiring a replacement soon. Those will be my winter tires for my Muirwoods (top right).
By the way, it is my understanding that Schwalbe used to use animal-derived stearic acid in their tires but switched to synthetic stearic acid a few years...

Couldn't you just post in the PYBT?

is it practicable to only remove your rear derailleur and to keep the front one with for example three chainrings? I've been searching for a while now but havent found any infos about it.

It's completely retarded, that's why. You'll get much more range and usefulness out of a single ring up front and a rear cog.
How will you tension the chain without rear derailleur ?
arrr fuck my mind, CASSETTE.

I propose a new model of public transportation.

The squat train.

In order to preserve space, we will now have vertical compartments within each carriage. These compartments will have small areas that people lay down in and there will be a small pillow and mattress for comfort.

Pic related, except comfier. We'll market it to locomotive manufacturers in India and they will build a few in some densely urbanised areas. We'll make millions. Who's with me?

But nobody's squatting

Also didn't Lufthansa come up with a similar concept some time ago?
>vertical compartments [...] that people lay down in
Will they bring us up into the roof and force us to jog in place?

Oh and don't ask for local craigslist, no such shit around here.

It's a perfectly average entry-level pseudo-MTB. Everything on it is bottom-of-the-line, but at least it has hydraulic brakes. Price matches the spec but is nothing special.

See if they'll swap the stem to a 60mm at cost.

What is that, a light rail for ants?

>Most people wont be anywhere near it, it will be too short to be of any service, carry few people, have expensive infrastructure, and operate every ~30 minutes
It's great! Super packed anywhere west of culver city but that adds to the experience somehow. Looking forward to the regional connector between the Expo and the Gold Line.

Does anybody else like to flip off cars stuck in peak hour traffic as they ride their bike back home from work? It always provides a good laugh to see those gas paying cucks stuck there in 5 o'clock traffic as I speed away home on my cheap BMX, giving them the finger.

I lived without a car for a year.
I was looking forward to a totally car free life.
I pedalled for socialism. I pedalled for effective, safe transport for all socio-economic classes. I pedalled for the planet. Fuck GM. Fuck Saudi Aramco.

I loved it. I was fully capable of doing everything from my work commute to grocery runs on the bike. Then I went through some light mental health trouble. My therapist and I focussed on my lacking social life a lot. Eventually both him and my parents started insisting that I needed a car to have a good social...
