Sounds like a beginning of a wonderful new boondoggle.
Functionally there is very little difference between light rail and BRT, so I'm not sure how this makes a hole lot of sense given that they already have the light rail infrastructure.

Eh, I had some amateur error, when trying to fixate my disc brakes.
I openend the oil Torx screw of the Shimano brake, and then pulled the brake.
Oil flew out like when you have shits diarrhea.

Anyways, now I lost a bit of oil in my rear brake system, and I notice it, I can pull the lever all the way back and it barely breaks.
I found no clear results about what to use, because people keep on arguing anyways.

Funny enough my bike doesn't use the original mineral oil, it's yellowish and not red. The distributor who put my bike together also thought...

Your old fluid was likely yellow, instead of red, because it had become contaminated, not because the seller used the wrong stuff.

As for what you should use, the only answer in your case is Shimano mineral oil. Mixing/switching brake fluids will contaminate your system in the best case, and damage your seals at worst.
That's a myth according to what most people say in the different forums.
That's what the manufactures tell you to do, because they want to earn more money.

But there are good enough alternatives out there, which a way cheaper.
And it didn't damage the seals.
Only additives and some other stuff could damage the seals.

>because it had become contaminated

Nah, no way. The red colour is nothing more than a dye. Magura uses blue dye, there are also green dyes.
You don't have to use genuine Shimano fluids. However you have to use the same type of fluid as your brake system requires. Mineral oil and DOT fluids can't be mixed and can't be used in brake systems meant for the other type of fluid. The systems use different type of rubber in their seals and if you use incorrect fluids the seals WILL fail at some point. It won't be instantaneous and it might not even be spectacular when they fail. It might take months for it to happen but it will happen at some...

I took the technician's test for the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), was the hardest test I've ever took and even though I studied non-stop all week I got only a 40%. The test I took is specifically for communications. The fortunate part though was every other person in the class failed too, only 9 other people taking it. Some of these people looked like electronics engineers or managers in their 50's and 60's but still had a shit fit. I swear though, when it comes to the BART it's like the Harvard of the electrical technician's world.

bike rim tape.jpg
147 KB,
Is the dimension printed on the bike rim tape the same that is needed for tires and tubes? Trying to fix up an old road bike ant the old tires were so dry they were unreadable. Someone in-between put 27 1/4 inch tires on it

pic related the rim tape
6 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
the only size which matters is the diameter of the rim.

the rim can take 1" to 2.5" since these are the common sizes.
Those 26" with the fractional width have a different bead diameter than your run of the mill 26" mountain bike wheel.

Cool, that helps because a ton of shops around me have various 26 tires but not specifically 1 3/8

So do you think that this rim tape dimension is for the tire diameter as well? as far as I can tell its the original rim tape. I measured as best as I could with a tape ruler, but without taking spokes off and the cassette/ free wheel off (which I don't have the tools to do) the measurement won't come out that accurate

I have never seen Amtrak NOT being given priority over everything.

USA railway problem is not called Amtrak and the future is not "giving more money to Amtrak so it can build its own lines". USA railway problem is called screwed nationalization. You see, those many European countries that have so many amazing state-owned railways actually own them because at one point in their history they basically nationalized private owned railway companies. In USA nothing like that really happened because America ain't no bloody commies, right.

Well it did during WWI.

US railroads were actually nationalized, but then returned after the war, because we ain't fucking commies.

79 KB,

How many times have you been ready to ride, only to be confronted with a flat tire? Well, our Alibi wants you to be pumped up to ride, not pumping up your tires. That's why it comes with tires that don't need any air at all. That's right, you can kiss your pump goodbye, and more importantly, you can say goodbye to ever having a flat tire again. We also designed an anti-rust chain for this bike that removes the need for regular dirty, grimy maintenance, plus a super comfortable Body Geometry saddle and grips that are 100% designed for women. The Alibi is always ready to ride, so consider it the perfect partner on your path to a fitter, better you.

Go to trade school/community college and apply for NDT certification level 1. Get an OSH certification as well while you're at it

Shit is still kinda expensive but for NDT level 1 training, it would only take about 8 months (tho it's still depends on which school you go to) and at most you only have to spend around 3k, minus the PPEs and other tools

Airline companies would employ NDT technicians to check fatigues, leakage, cracks and other things related to aircraft maintenance. Bonus you don't...

The way the sides of the top part of the rack stick out past the sides of the rack will probably be problematic, the panniers won't sit as closely as they should. You could probably make it work, but it wouldn't be ideal. You would be better off with something like pic related where the top of the rack sits flush with the sides of the rack.

Next time please use >>>/n/bqg

Just ignore the top rack and mount it like pic related.

I bought into the 29er meme and have comically long chainstays.

but really? I can't into the hip thrust.

Instead I bought clipless pedals and 29er+ rims/tires so I can look slightly down my nose at full-susfags while being secretly ashamed.

Also, I've kinda chickened out as I enter middle age. One of my neighbors permanently crippled himself on what amounts to a loca bunny hill and I haven't done much singletrack since. He hasn't talked about it, but I'm pretty sure I know the exact spot he wrecked. It's a simple double-tabletop, but it's also just slightly off-camber and just a little bit longer than what you can clean without cranking.
