Alright.

While I am positive that ninety percent of the population here already knows about such a thing, unusual as it may seem.

For those who are knowledgeable of the various rolling stock of the Pennsylvania Railroad, the T1's were their last steam locomotives built and the most controversial. They were ambitious, technologically sophisticated, powerful, fast, and distinctively streamlined by Raymond Loewy.

As some have stated, the locomotive is claimed to be capable to run at speeds over 140mph, (225 km/h) almost two times that of the record set...

Didn't a bunch of Britsharias already do this with one of their beloved locos?

They did.

The LNER Peppercorn Class A1 60163 Tornado, the first mainline steam locomotive built in the United Kingdom since 1960.

That's the one.

Well, as for OP, I think it'd be based if they pull this off, but desu I'd rather see them rebuild one of the F-7 Hudsons.

Hello everybody,
I have found this bike relatively cheaply but i found this over the bottom bracket.
Is it cracked, or just the paint.
Thank you.

I'm starting to look for a new nicer bike this year with a 1000-1700 euro price range. What should I look?, high end alu with high specs (ultegra), or low end with lower specs (tiagra and maybe 105)?.

Well, it's officially over 70 degrees here and bicycling season has returned. Looks like I'll be on /n/ for another summer. Can't wait to share the next few months with you, rebuilding my muscle mass enough to cruise at 15mph again, making it up that hill and fantasizing about what it would be like to do a group ride.
I'm all stocked up on bananas. Are you ready /n/?

How bad a stuff up is this "cycleway".

Ostensibly NZ's first Copenhagen-style cycle lane.
Resident groups are up in arms about it - something about wanting their ridiculously wide road back for comfy driving.

>How bad a stuff up is this "cycleway".
It's safer for low-speed cycling.

I ride in them all the time and car doors and pedestrians are much worse because they never look before stepping or dooring into it.

So it's hard to race down it but if you're just going 10kmh or something then I guess it's probably preferable.

there isn't even any fucking people in NZ, how can they bitch about cycle lanes. Does traffic even EXIST in that forgotten strip of land?

I generally consult google maps on my computer before I ride somewhere new, then use that info to make a cue sheet that I can consult while riding, or I just draw myself a very simple map with important streets and landmarks.

HERE maps offline

I usually just pick a direction and peek at google maps every few miles to try and make a big circle.

If I've got a real destination, I'll write the turns and distances on a post it note and tape it to the handlebar.
