>>897722 Such a serious (public) fixation or obsession on the LZ129 disaster....Heavier-than-air passenger disasters are usually way worse than Hindenburg where 2/3 of people onboard survived...-Only about 35 people died. It's not unusual for heavier-than-air crash fatalities to be many times that..-no one walks away
I think commercial passenger airships today would have a small but very viable niche. People like to cruise, sightsee, etc.. It would fit in with passenger train and the ocean cruise type consumers. And... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Tesla Gigafactory will supply batteries for the $35,000 Tesla Model 3.
>EO Elon Musk reiterated the 500,000-vehicles-per-year goal at the June 9 shareholder’s meeting, where he said that a “new paint center…is intended to be able to match the production level that includes the Model 3, so we can produce…we can paint all of the cars at basically 500,000 unit per year level with this paint shop.”
>>877877 It's fucking awesome they are making it in the middle of the desert. I mean like, there's no nature that could be harmed there, it's like a dead place anyway so might as well industrialize it.
In Spain you literally turn up to Madrid airport and get on the next flight to Barcelona for a reasonable price. Why can't we have this in UK-France?
Why can't one of these regional airports like greenford or the one by Maidenhead (soon to be on the tube) have an hourly continual departure to a counterpart ex-military/private run down airport for a cheap price? I'll tell you why. Joos.
If you're an American, its an eye-opening experience to use and airline that actually knows customer service. Hottest flight attendants, always smiling & will actually serve you real food. Onboard movies you don't have to buy. Only real downside I've had with Emirates is that upgrades are insanely expensive. Airport at Dubai is good & bad...too large & may have to go through multiple security screenings for no apparent reason...but awesome food courts, free wifi & a real, no-shit shopping mall inside. You'll swear off US carriers forever.
Then there was my last flight with them. There was some Pakistani (?) family new to the ways of 19th-century culture & technology. No one spoke their brand of moon-speak, so flight attendants had a hard time with the toilet training. Dad stood in front guarding the bathroom while his wife & daughters did #2 with the door wide-fucking open. Fortunately, thats the exception, but damn. Pic related...squatty potty at the Dubai airport (half of them are western style).
People go to airshows because they like to watch dangerous events. Would people go to a NASCAR race if the cars went around at 60 mph with no accidents? Would folks attend the circus if there was only clowns and elephants?
So /n/, I have this old Raleigh Clubman that has been my trusty steed for the last 5 years (pic not mine but same bike).
However there's problems with it. The brakes are pretty terrible by now - yes I should probably get new pads but I just generally vintage, non-dual-pivot brakes are a piece of shit. Also I'm pretty sure the quill stem is frozen (corroded) because it won't come out, and it's slightly out of alignment, which pisses me off.
Should I just sell this bike and get a new bike? What do you think? Especially regarding the brakes, are... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
rim brakes are pretty much pointless these days buy a new bike with discs and be done with it I did and I think it's unbelievable what kind of shit I used to put up with discs adjust themselves, all you really have to worry about is new pads every now and then, and if you crash you have to true the disc (easy peasy) some guys sperg about noise and autistically cleaning the rotors, but IDGAF, I just want to stop
Hm, I wasn't thinking of a disc brake bike because that would be quite expensive... if I do get a new bike then I guess I could get something second hand, or I was thinking maybe splash out, get a cheap new road bike from Wiggle for £300 / £350 which would be perfectly serviceable.
Obviously I know disc brakes are way better but yeah. Unless I can find a good deal on a second hand road bike with disc brakes (seems unlikely since disc brakes are only just hitting mass market road bikes really) then probably a no-go.
>>901108 I think a couple companies sell dual-pivots that will work with non-recessed nut mounting. Otherwise, look for a pair of 610 centerpulls from Dia-Compe or (vintage) Weinmann. Consult with LBS re. stuck quill.
So I just got my second flat tire (in less than 300km) and I don't feel really at ease under the rain with my sammy slicks. I want to invest in an "urban" set of tire, something that would still let me go fast, but would be resistant and offer good grip under the rain.
Are the Schwalbe marathon plus the go to? The michelin protek urban are significantly cheaper, lighter and supposedly have excellent grip under the rain. Anything else I should look at (I'm fitting 700x35 btw)?
Also, I didn't have time to buy a new tube, so I used... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
