Most of these small town networks were build in a time when combustion engines were too weak to carry a meaningful amount of people, so no busses (and also few cars for the same reason).
From today's perspective there are cases of cities under 100k that due to their layout have high used corridors that streetcars work on well but in most cases streetcars don't make sense in small cities.
>>929344 >>929324 It's true that had buses been available, there would've been no reason to put down a tram line in such small towns, at the same time, once the tram line had been built, they might as well have kept it. Bustitution made relative sense, it wasn't a terrible option in small towns, but it wasn't really necessary, it was more part of a trend away from streetcars. Just look at how some small european cities kept their tram system and managed to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Now the cyclepath with solar panels in Krommenie, the Netherlands, has been functioning for a year. The seventy meter long cycle track has generated energy for three households. The problem with damage of the top layer, coating, is already resolved. There are still three places in the Netherlands, and two abroad, where a solar pavement is laid down. This need not be a bike lane, a bus lane is also possible.

Don't get anything too old, they are cool machines but eventually what happens is the cylinder casing will crack and you'll have to replace the engine. If it's not too old you can buy a diesel engine replacement from India for very cheap and it will basically drop into the chassis and bolt right up. If you buy something antique you won't be able to do that.
Also be warned when tilling with them: 1. Keep your feet safe lol 2. They are quite strenuous on the body, it's not a walk in the park when tilling/plowing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>930298 They're half a decade old bottom of the barrel bikes with coil spring pogostick forks and groupsets at a level below what's even up for sale today, and you say you're buying them used so whatever little difference there once were is completely dwarfed by how much wear and abuse they've seen.
They're both heaps of shit, noone cares which one is slightly less shit, and you better be trolling there, you craigslist fiend.
My friend is looking to spend $500 on a bike. I keep telling him to find someone on Craigslist, he insist on buying something new. He likes Diamondback. I tell him a brand new bike for $500 is gonna have shit components, he doesnt think it will mater.
He will use this to ride like 1.5 miles to work, occasional recreational riding, and whatever else. He lives in the boonies, mostly farm roads, small towns.
I already recommend a single speed/fixie type. He does not like road bikes. He is most familar with mountain bike type.
What's a good brand new... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>929402 For that usage at least, I guess they're slightly more expensive..? The discs on that bike are pretty low end and will need more regular tuning than most. Buying some higher end discs would still be under $500 though.
>>931529 >implying I didn't ride through the ice and snow all winter But seriously, in Springtime when nice riding weather returns, I just start increasing my mileage gradually from day-to-day and week-to-week. Every week I push my total/max length ride a little further out.
