I need help with bikes in general. I wanna start cycling but don't know shit about it. I wanna have pic related but don't know what type it is. The boke that I plan to get is supposedly for daily commute when I don't feel like driving because of the traffic. Is the pic related suitable?keep in mind I have zero knowledge about bikes and I really am interested to know more. Shit like -brands -materials -cost -parts -overall judgement of said brands and products I wanna get into it but I feel hopeless and most that I know that are into bikes are faggots and or have mixed judgement with one another about giving me advices because they just end up shitting on each other.
1. Very little public transportation infrastructure for such a big city 2. Redundancy: a lot of the routes run in the same direction, as opposed to going in different directions to cover more area 3. Extension plans "derailed" by big car corporations on a daily basis
Also LA has been built around automobiles since the 1920s. Nearly every suburb in the county since the 1920s has been built with automobile transportation in mind. It's not like you can go back to the Red Car days of the 1900s in any meaningful way.
almost pulled the trigger on $30 vinyl protection tape until I saw the thickness of 0.015mm, literally the same as duct tape thickness. Apart from aesthetics, is there a difference? Reapplying it is not an issue, going through 10 rolls of duct tape equals to two strips of protective tape in terms of price. Not on a mtb, just a gravel grinder.
Bamboo bikes were a big fad about 5 years ago - by all accounts they're plenty strong enough for hard riding, but they're somewhat heavy and usually quite flexible (lots of variation between frames though). Take away the cool factor associated with the aesthetic and easy DIY frame building and there's nothing special about bamboo frames, which is probably why the trend has waned.
No simple dashcam films. No crashes,untill is something really interesting in it. Starting with, ehem, stickcam. Lublin, Poland https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7zOCgCfPU0 Riga, Latvia (pt.1): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PL0OD9XZqlg
I think this crash is interesting - it shows how little any road vehicle means against a heavy, fast rail vehicle. Milejów , Poland, 26.06.2015, train hitting a defunct truck and throw it onto a house nearby: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5ArWhOLfV8 Aftermatch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NloG-v69Ao

That lowlife scum had apparently driven only 1000 km in his life, had a truck driving license only since 2012 and already done 19 traffic offences. Still for some reason this guy is allowed to drive trucks... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

No. The trains in GE999 were figurative devices to begin with, and the Galaxy Railways spinoff that takes them somewhat more seriously as technology is completely absurd - the whole point of rails is to distribute heavy loads, sp there would be no advantage to rails in a zero gravity environment, and in practice would needlessly complicate space travel.
The 999 TV series is still one of the best anime ever made.
Eh, I figured the same as well once I thought over it for a while.
No reason to blow off presumably trillions of dollars on something that will render as quite ineffective in modern times.
Still though, you have to admit it would seem rather cool to see those mile long American freight consists speed throughout the skies , hauled by dual ES44AC Road Switchers or ||>Insert popular locomotive here<|| whatnot.
