In terms of traveling? If I have to get somewhere less than 500 miles away, I'll drive. If further, I'll take a plane. Trains are just to expensive and inconvenient compared with frequent, low-cost air travel.

Please share and discuss what you think are the best locomotives to be produced, or your favorite locomotive type.

Personally, I think the EMD SD45 variants are some of the greatest diesels to be produced for North American railroads, and pretty advanced for the time they were released. Also they looked really cool.
313 replies and 145 images submitted. Click here to view.
Here's a set of SD45X demo units, designed and built for SP in 1970 and equipped with improved cooling capacity for tunnels and snowsheds and with a 4200 HP prime mover. Only 7 were ever built, and six of those were owned by the SP.
In terms of freight locos I would say the Ac4400 or dash 9. My favourite loco though is the MPI MP36 though.

These are always fun to watch, are former SP units. Occasionally they'll haul freight (say 25-50 cars) because Caltrain can't have UP run freight up the penninsula during the day.

I don't get it. I can adjust the wheelbase by sliding the front roller forward and backwards, but that also changes the belt tension. I need to move the front roller forward, that will make the belt tension tighter. There's no way to adjust these independently? Should I worry about it being too tight (from being too far forward)? Or too loose?

No manual to fucking read, got them used. Kreitler with the full aluminum rollers for $70.

There's like 3-4 settings you can easily find out which position to put it in because you will be unable to ride if it isn't in the right setting.
So the difference between the longest and shortest settings shows the difference between the most and least belt tension - right? They're totally dependent upon each other?

I'm about to purchase my first road bike and I was wondering if it would be a wise decision to go for a disc brake equipped bike? I'm coming from a MTB background where disc brakes are standard so no prejudice there. I'm a fairly light guy at around 143 lbs.

I've been looking at the Giant Contend SL range and narrowed it down to 2 models:

SL 1:
+ Nearly full 105 groupset
+ Lighter wheels
+ Colour (personal preference)
- Rim brakes (that wear out the rim, I'll have...

And here's the SL 2 Disc on 10 SPD Tiagra with mechanical discs.
I'd definitely go with the SL1.

Lighter wheels make a pretty big difference in hills and it's why wheels are generally classified as either 'fast wheels (aero)' or 'climbing wheels (light)'.
Plus, I wouldn't buy a brand new 10 speed now for the reasons that you've mentioned.
Also, though I haven't tried disks, I've seen many people here say that mechanical disks aren't worth touching and that hydraulic is the only real option.

It's your money, your life, and your decision but if it was me then...

I hope they shovel the sidewalks, or you have balls of steel. Plows push the snow right into the bike lanes and shoulders, so you've got to get right next to the cars.
Normal mountain bike tires are fine, I've found. Disk brakes are probably better, since you're going to have lots of snow all around your rims. I've survived the past three winters here (Utah) with those brakes though, so they still work ok.
Also, get good fenders - you don't want all that dirty slush going all over your back.
Yeah, my current bike has disc brakes. I can buy fenders too. I ride through mud all the time without them, but slush will be terrible all over my legs during the winter. Apparently there are some people here that can manage in the winter, but this will be my first attempt to last as long as I can. I think the plows will end up thwarting me though. The roads are just not bike friendly at all and really dangerous.
>but slush will be terrible all over my legs during the winter
Oh yah, get rain pants. Work great, and act as a bit of a wind breakers too. Gloves are also a must, though mittens might work better - if your fingers are separated, they can't warm each other, and even with gloves your pinky can get very cold. Those silly covers that go over the whole handle are ugly as hell, but they are will save your hands some pain.
