The Tozai line is a bit of a razor's edge for being called a subway though. It's more like "an underground section joining 2 lines"

Also, Victoria line trains are pretty sexy. A shame it's probably a hellish nightmare due to the lack of aircon though

Any of you guys have anything similar to these bike locking cages in your area?

They have them here in the Bay Area subway stations. They are 5 cents an hour and uses an electronic key card to get in and out of your own personal cage and are solar powered. Technically they are for bikes but I guess you could really put anything in them.

Way safer and more secure than the typical metal bike racks and pretty convenient too

Why isn't stainless more common? It has essentially unlimited service life unlike crackly fred crabbon. You are not a professional racer, why not get a bike that's actually useful? If it makes your friends less likely to bully you, you can always slap on some carbon fiber texture decals.

Stainless is still susceptible to galvanic corrosion when in contact with aluminum components. If anything, aluminum is the way to go.

very niche product so ot has a very high price

So... these went out of use, pretty much.

But was it a right decision? If we used modern, lighter materials, could we make them smaller? Small enough for them to have length less than 8 meters and able to carry average family?

Think about the possibilities. They are quite fast, we can make them very safe (yea, I know about Hindenburg, but it happened literally nearly a century ago) and most importantly, they don't take the streets, so you get no traffic jams.

Would prbably be used to transport things and not people. There's a possibility that they won't need to be manned either, just plot a course here and there and voila supply lines.

If you're talking about a replacement for cars, helicopters are certainly a thing that already exists.

As ever, flying vehicles are expensive, fuel inefficient (for short journeys) and require extensive training to operate.

I want to get gigantic quads and booty. I know the guy in pic related is not natural but I still want those proportions.

I've thinking about getting a cheap fixed gear bike for commuting and a racing bike (like a CAAD12) for club racing and long distances. Of course, I will still hit the gym.

Thoughts? Tips? Bike recommandation?

Is this the game changer for commute riding?

>For 2,999 yuan (that's around $455) users get a bike that can assist the rider's pedaling for 45 kilometers on a single charge, and comes with a companion app that logs your distance, speed, GPS location, calories burned, and more. The QiCycle also has Shimano three-speed gears, folds down into a (relatively) compact package that weighs 14.5 kilograms, and has front and rear lights built into its frame.

e-bikes are already a thing. they're basically ostracized from bike communities though because they're lazy fat fucks who consider bicycle riding a kind of punishment to be endured in exchange for being "healthy", except actually using their legs to pedal is too traumatic to them so they think they can ease themselves in by getting an e-bike to test the waters.

anywhere that actually doesn't suck bans their use and possession, although enforcement is spotty.
