>>955716 Nah I'll stick to this until at least the end of the year. I'm sure I'll find people getting rid of their older bikes when new ones come around the corner/christmas gifts/etc so I might find some great deals. I'll also have more time to figure out what I REALLY want, which ain't bad.
I mean, I've been riding for only like three months, there's time for a new bike.
Am I the only one that went through this kind of thing?
So, /n/erds, the City of Atlanta is getting to vote on increasing its own sales tax .5% until 2057 (to a total of 8.5%), with the additional .5% going to fund MARTA expansions in the city proper. We're looking at $2.5 Billion in revenue plus federal matching, and what ever the city /MARTA throws in on top of that from their respective surpluses.
The draft of the project list just came out yesterday and I'm pretty fucking excited:
- 20+ miles Light Rail / streetcar expansion
- 11 miles Bus rapid Transit
- 2 miles Heavy Rail extension

Actually, stick a rigid fork and seat post on it, and a better saddle, and that could almost make a decent townbike. I mean, it would still have shit tier components, but... you know. All that cushioning is, somewhat counter-intuitively, making the bike more uncomfortable for anything but the shortest of rides.
>>952511 I don't really have a choice - I'm not albino but pretty damn close, so the alternative to wearing sunscreen is having a really painful sunburn. Skin cancer is a long-term concern, avoiding pain is an immediate one.
Sunscreen, long sleeve jerseys and tights all summer. After a while I got sick of applying sunscreen to my arms and legs before a ride to the point where I just wouldn't ride. Also bugs and dirt stick to the sunscreen.
So I wear arm and leg coverings all summer. Some times I use sunsleeves and lower leg coverings with regular jerseys / bibs. The leg ones can come loose.
What do you want to know about wheel slip? It's normally an environmental thing (slick rail) or fault with a traction motor these days. The solution is to blow sand, apply a slight amount of independent, or cut out traction motors sequentially until you find the faulty one. It's not that impressive since modern locomotives will inform you of it in the cab and you can quickly correct it.
Still doesn't stop some morons from burning up rail and creating a lot of work for a bucket gang.
So what's the deal with Philly's trolley system? How exactly did it manage to survive bustitution? Is it still being expanded or are plans still being made to expand it? And are there any plans to replace the PCC's with modern articulated LRV's?
I'm moving to Seattle or Portland, depending on where I get a job. The public transit is adequate enough in both that I don't need a car. That being said, I'd like to leave the city once in a while, possibly take a 3-day vacation or something. I'll be living there for a year or so, and I don't want to deal with the hassle and cost of parking/traffic/gas/insurance/repairs. How do you deal with not owning a car in a West Coast city? I've thought about using Zipcar, but if there are other options I'd love to hear them.
