>>975546 Fuck so-called 'driverless cars/autonomous cars', I LIKE driving myself. I wouldn't get into one if you PAID me. Also I think they're garbage and will be for decades to come because we can't even figure out how a human brain does what it does, therefore we can't build anything that works the same, therefore you'll NEVER build any fucking 'driverless car' that can drive even as well as a human being UNDER ALL CONDITIONS AND CIRCUMSTANCES, so fuck that shit I WANT TO LIVE, I'll...

Any riders here? When they're finished rebuilding the Waterbury Branch , its going to change the game for people in Connecticut.
That line is a single rail and incredibly shitty , but now connecticut has a brand new Rapid Bus Transit system that runs into downtown Waterbury, it has Millions of new riders and new customers for the shittiest part of Metro North so FINALLY things are being rebuilt. Upgraded Multi Tracks , switches , signal lights , ext. I cant wait!
I have no idea why Connecticut bothers with trains and such
I'm in NYC and every time there's an article in the Times about transit or bikes, some cager says "I'm from Connecticut and this is going to make everything worse when I drive down to NYC twice a year to watch The Phantom of the Opera, all bike lanes and trains should be destroyed to make room for people from three states away to be able to park their cages for free in midtown"
I don't know jack shit about bicycles. About a month ago I bought a mountain bike to commute to work. Today I have discovered a different way to ride my bike. I don't know if it's supposed to be the right or wrong way, which is the purpose of this thread. So far I would normally just grip the handles and pedal normally. Today I realized that using my full body makes cycling much more fun. To be specific, I realized that the allocation of the weight is of outmost importance. When pedalling on the left, I grip with my right hand and push all of my weight... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>974950 Rocking the bike from side to side underneath you is normal when you ride out of the saddle, standing on the pedals. And riding out of the saddle is normally done when you need to put out extra effort during a steep climb, or to sprint, or just as a way to stretch your legs during a long ride.
If you're shifting your weight around that dramatically while seated then you might have an issue with your saddle height, but otherwise nope, nothing odd about that at all.
So, I found a frame near one of the charity clothes containers. It's from a Focus Black Raider LTD size M. I'm not sure about the year tho.
How to find out the size of the wheels only from the frame ?
I googled this bike model, and found 99% 26" wheels, but when I put the 'new' 26" back wheel, the brake mounting points are too low, almost on the level of the rim.
The parts I bought 2nd hand pretty cheap. 26" alu. back wheel, it was used with the original bike. With Shimano 14-34 Thread-on 7-speed Freewheel (I think).... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm 25 and I still can't ride a bike without holding the handlebar. I can let go and sit up just fine, but I always begin drifting left or right. I've used the same bike all the time though, don't know if it's harder on some. Should I kill myself?
>>972049 Faster is easier, seat at the correct height, bike setup well (headset isn't too tight and tyres aren't at a low pressure). Steer with your body, you should be able to correct the drift with your hips and legs with your arms by your side.
I saw one of these beasts in a campground in Colorado. The German owner said he had shipped in into the US by boat after traveling in South America. It's seems like it's more for crossing the Sahara than off-roading in the US. Anybody know anything about them?
The weight alone on those things makes them not particularly great off road compared to a lot of other vehicles. If you're using it as kind of an overgrown camper it's fine I guess, but there are much better vehicles for the purpose.
How long did it take you guys biking to start recognizing differences with your body? Endurance (biking or running), muscle size, etc? And what changes did you notice first? All that stuff is my question here
>>974593 I don't get how having high and low platform doors is going to work long term. I get that the low platform doors are for the near term and the high ones for once all stations have been modified to have high platforms. But once that happens, will they modify the trains to remove the low doors and put seats there instead?
Aside from the normal considerations of weight, complexity, handlebar real estate, etc chainring size effects suspension behavior. It is a lot easier to get a perfectly tuned suspension if there is only one chainring to consider. This is important enough that chainline issues are a worthwhile tradeoff for many disciplines.
