People complain about the dangers of electric vehicles due to the lack of engine noise. But most modern cars make very engine noise unless they are accelerating. While listening for vehicles as I approach an intersection its usually just the tire noise I hear.
>>905863 the current main station wasn't the mainstation until last year. It used to be the south station before the promotion. Interestingly though, the west station which used to be the main hub, doesn't connect to the airport either unless you count the airport bus lines.

Alright everybody, noob post and I probably fucked up in a big way here but I'm ready to learn and fix my mistakes.
Was just out doing some recreational riding, and my pant leg unraveled and caught in my chain. I was going pretty fast and apparently the force was enough to snap a piece on my front derailleur (pic related). This is a SunTour Sport piece from what I believe is a 1975 Fuji Special Tourer. I bought it several months ago at a thrift shop for 20 bucks as my first bike since childhood, and I love riding it as a recreational bike. I'd like to either repair the part (which I suspect will not be possible) or replace it. As a newbie I have the following questions:
1) Do I need to get the same part as the original for the bike to work correctly, or can I sub in a suitable replacement?
2) If I need an original, then how can I certifiably identify the correct part? (or I'd just like to know out of curiosity anyway, I know nothing of bike part identification)
3) If push comes to shove, is a piece like this capable of being repaired? No idea what exactly you'd need to do but I know some people who might have the tools needed to repair metal parts.
I know I messed up but I try to focus on the positive, and I want to use this mistake as a chance to learn a valuable lesson about bike repair (on top of the valuable lesson about wearing the right stuff when you ride). Any help is greatly appreciated.
This thread is made for the discussion of velomobiles, all kinds of two-wheeled recumbents and open tricycles.

FAQ >Why do people ride a recumbent? Comfort. A recumbent is extremely comfortable, since your whole back is supported, your vision is undisturbed and there is no strain on any part of your body. Also, depending on the type and model of recumbent, they are more aerodynamic then uprights and thus also faster.
>Why are velomobiles so expensive? They are cheaper then high end carbon bikes if you compare the building hours-to-price. If you use one to replace your car, it will save you money in a few years of usage. If you're to poor to afford a new one, buy a second hand one, they go for about 3000e, but I've seen them for 1000e.
I'm not a bent rider myself (reasons). But on an upright bike, when my heart rate goes above 150 for extended periods, I tend to dip my head down periodically to help blood flow to my brain. Do you think the prone rider position of a 'bent gets more blood flow to the brain?
