oh boy where to begin lel
-Since 1969 every single government has focused on building Freeways and letting rail rot. 1969 Melbourne Transportation Plan laid out 10 Freeways, the last was finished in 2005. They're all congested. People are switching back to rail use. So the plan is to build more freeways.
-With the focus on road development and the lack of investment...

Melbourne Tram network
>Pros
heavy coverage in the city centre and surround inner urban area. You can hop off the trains catch the trams to keep going, switch from one tram to another, etc
>Cons
-Quite a few stops are often only 100 meters apart
-In older streets that have one lane on either side of the tram tracks the councils often allow curb side parking - meaning people park in that one lane, meaning all traffic is forced on the tram tracks meaning all traffic grinds to a halt!
-The lightrail...

I'm riding between 40 and 50 miles on a sunday morning, tackling some decent hills (cat 4 according to strava) and riding at 15mph. pic related.

Depends on what I'm doing if it's a commute then it's like 4-5 miles with some hills 17-25 on flats 10-16 on hills but if I'm doing a long ride then it's more like 18mph (the trail near me is almost perfectly flat for like40 miles one way.

Where = different places, prefer mountains. I have some nice HC climbs around my area which are fun.
Speed = Average for the whole ride is generally around 30-35 depending on how much of it is spent climbing.
What = Aluminum frame, but upgraded to ultegra, really light wheelset, etc.

Rides are generally around 100-120km and now that I have classes I can only realistically get out twice a week. During summer usually 3 or 4 times a week.

thoughts? concerns? is there anything better for turning signals i could get for my electric assist bicycle?

i was using a home made blinker that i made with a project box, a couple of 555 timers and transistors and a 3 way switch on my handlebar but that got stolen when they failed to take my whole bike, which i now fold up and take with me into businesses and work.

although i do want to get a better headlamp that i could stick to my helmet and possibly could be USB rechargeable as opposed to three AAA cells.

Why do people put so much emphasis on side lights? Does it really help with anything? Anytime you come across traffic perpendicularly, it's either they yield to you or you yield to them. By the time anyone really sees the side lights, it's too late and collision is imminent.

What are the pros and cons of steel, aluminum, magnesium, titanium and carbon?
36 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.

>>891763
>carbon
Best combination of weight, strength, stiffness, compliance, and aerodynamics, however it is not as mature a technology of metals. Contrary to popular belief, carbon is not fragile and does not suffer from fatigue, but it can be very difficult to tell if carbon is damaged or has cracks that will lead to more catastrophic failure down the line. Metal is malleable, and will bend, crease, and it is easy to see cracks before it breaks completely. Carbon is either expensive or of questionable...

And steel?

>Steel
Not any cheaper than aluminum, in some cases as expensive as carbon. They rust. Some people claim you can repair them, but it's almost always just cheaper to replace. Some examples have lasted many decades, if not over a century, if in fact you feel compelled to hand it down to your grand children as an heirloom, assuming that they want your cruddy old bicycle, it it hasn't been destroyed in a crash between now and then. Lauded for ride quality, the better carbon and titanium frames at least match it. The biggest advantage is...

I want to get a hitch mounted bike rack that can carry at least 4 bikes and can accomodate full suspension bikes, bikes with very large top tubes, and a 5" fat bike. I was planning to get a Yakima Fourtimer, pic related. Which is compatible with all of my concerns except maybe not 5" fatty (they have "fat straps" that accomodate fat bikes but apparently not 5" fat bikes).

Then someone suggested I instead get a cargo tray and carry my bikes in that (I'll post a pic in a few seconds). What do you guys think? Get a Yakima or get something not...

>>891490
I bought a hitch mounted platform rack, like the one in your OP, and I like it. The downside of a cargo tray, is that you don't have the supports for the tires, which makes the bikes more likely to tip over, unless you're just laying them on top of one another.

I didn't go for a Yakima, or Thule, because they are honestly far too expensive. I did get a pretty good one off of Amazon, that had good reviews, and didn't cost an arm and a leg. It was only about $200.

I lost my license and where I live there's a lot of steep hills. I'm terrified of riding public transportation because there's too many niggers around here.

I'm hoping to put it on a fixie, if that would work.

In certain parts of the world railroad track maintenance fails to clear the extensinve falling leaves from the rail. As trains pass over them it crushes them creating a thin, yet very slippery layer upon the railhead. This makes operations difficult and delays and cancellations iminent.

The obvious objective of this decidedly British advert is to advocate cycling instead of taking the train. It's dumb.

It's protesting against civil involvement in community maintenance.
A lot of neighbourhoods expect residents to maintain their own streets: pulling weeds out of cracks, sweeping debris off the road, et cetera.

The given text is saying "fuck that, it's the city's job."

Why aren't contra-rotating turboprop engines used on aircraft more? They can produce an incredible amount of power, can increase efficiency by 6%-16%, and can go incredibly fast. Sure, they are a bit noisier, and the addition of the secondary propeller results in additional weight and complexity, but these don't necessarily outweigh the benefits. Take one of the only examples of these engines:

Because passengers are terrified of visible propellers, and the vast majority of planes that would benefit from these are for carrying passengers who could just opt for an airline that uses non-terrifying planes.
