This is the biggest public transportation infrastructure project in Montreal since the last major Metro extensions (Orange line extension, blue line construction)
This is an automated light rail network that will exclusively serve the suburbs. Rather than expand the network of commuter trains and increase service, they are building light rail into the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>947795 They will be constructing a hard link between the Montreal Trudeau airport and downtown Montreal. The very successful 747 shuttle bus operated by the STM has roughly 1.3 million passengers a year, more than the Toronto-Pearson UP, but the operational costs are negligent (its a bus) and the capital costs are non-existent, naturally. For this line to actually travel from the Saint-Laurent Technoparc to the airport, it would have to travel under hundreds of metres of tarmac. The construction cost of this tunnel will drive...

Not actually part of the municipality of Montreal, this sleeper community is one of the communities that will be served by the new train. Pic related is a street 5 minutes from the proposed train station.
You can't even make this shit up. You can even tell from the construction that this is your typical North American boomer/cager/urban sprawl 1950s development.
>>946937 Costs a LOT, welding is critical (ie some factories will build chamber filled with inert gas to weld the frames in as slightest contamination will ruin frame), still have to use carbon forks, never have to paint it so it will always look nice even if abused
Does anyone besides Nashbar make very small panniers? I want roughly 5L (300 cubic inches) per pannier (so 10L/600in total). I am aware that there are other options like frame bags, handlebar bags, trunk bags, etc. but I'm specifically looking for panniers. And something better quality than Nashbar. Basically something just like the Nashbar Daytrekker but a different brand.
My second largest cog on my cassette makes clicking noises. I have a 11-32 so it's the 30T. I have a tiagra 10 speed, couple years old. As far as I can tell everything is adjusted ok. All the gears are working although I've never been able to get the shifts perfect in both directions. The little derailleur wheel is directly in line with the cog so I don't think this is something I can fix by adjusting the index. I can't tell where the noise is coming from. Just really confused why it's only happening in that one gear.
what is the point of a slack head angle if you dont have a front suspension? sure, some trailing of the front wheel gives a less nervous feel (that is why all modern road bikes have some + less wheelbase) but on rigid CX and MTB bikes of today just seems too much...
is it there to ease the counter-steering when cornering because that much trail sure doesnt help when going fast on a straight line.
If you can get a slack ht angle and compensate on the fork rake, you can keep the front wheel from hitting your toes, especially with extra long cranks, fenders, fat tires, etc.
I've got a too-long bike that I actually like because I can ride with toe clips and fenders and have no toe strike. I'd rather have a bike with a swallow HT angle and a proper sized top tube but oh well
no way that is the rason. they deliberatly keep the rake down on road bikes to have a shorter wheelbase. specilized for instance keeps the trail around 5 cm but it could have go to 0 if they wanted to.
>>948920 >It sounds like you don't realize fork rake can compensate for various ht angles though, friend. Are you aware of that?

>>948340 None of these are 'comfy', how could you even think such a thing? >dirty >not private >noisy Yuck. Your own personal car? With just you in it? The doors locked, climate perfectly adjusted, stereo playing music you like? That's comfy.
>>947869 I had a pair of RS31 before buildning my dream wheels. Good wheels. Flattened spokes give off a weird whistling howl above 45km/h (30mph). Heavy hubs, but cup and cone design and offset rear rim for stiffness. Not for the WW. Good wheels. Would recommend.
>>947872 >RS31 mmh, ty looks good, but since the bike is like 600€ and the wheels 160€ its still a sligthly over what i would pay, im just looking for wheels to repair the bike then i would buy myself a better one someday.
Hey /n/ I like to commute everywhere on my bike and I do so in my normal clothes. Problem is it's been getting into the 90 degree temperature zone and when I get some place I got a big sweat stain on my ass. Can anybody recommend a pair of cycling pants that will repel moisture or offer better breathability than regular jeans and not look like some dick hugging spandex capris?
You arent going to have many options at only $1000. A quick look on performance bikes even with sale only puts 2-3 bikes under your spending limit... then again I found an awesome deal on my road bike so you can maybe find one.
>Now selling my sparingly used fitness bike because of lost girlfriend, and the interest with her. >Very nice and quick. Easy to maintain and weighs almost nothing. >Yes. I'm speaking about the bike here.
>>948610 I have a cygolite taillight that has a built-in, non-replaceable rechargeable battery. In flashing mode it's good for like 35 hours and it recharges in like 2 hours. I also have a B&M taillight which is not flashing, the one AA cell I have in there now has been in there for like 3 months with an hour a day and it's still going strong.
In short, I don't know what kind of conditions you're expecting to ride in, but the headlights are going to be more of a concern, when it comes to battery... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Don't spend that much. Limit yourself to 1K and buy from bikesdirect or craigslist. Basically you want something that if you lock it up the culturally enriched African American isn't going to bother to go home to get his axel grinder to cut off your d-lock.
