Actualy not at all. Next time you drive your car thru a downtown area check your average speed! The monorail runs in a fairly narrow valley and end-to-end beats busses, taxis and cars hands down; especially during rush hour or in the winter time. What is a better solution in your opinion?
I did at one point. I used to work for an airline and at one point I sold my vile murdercage for a crabbon gofast trektrektrek. I would ride to work at the airport on my work days, but on days off, I would still ride to the office, leave my bike there, and take the employee shuttle to the terminal and get on whatever plane had the most empty first class seats going somewhere interesting. Then I'd fly back that evening and ride my bike home from the airport.
>>895154 Golden era will return. As lack of coal suggests completely different economy. Most likely one with less personal transport, more urbanisation (less sprawl) and subsequently, large urban centers connected with plethora of freight carrying rail lines.
I think the best way to approach HSR in the US is to create mainlines where trains travel at 220mph and the have various branches of dieselized service connecting to the Main lines. An eastern mainline like Boston to NOLA, Midwest mainline from NYC to Chicago (perhaps MN?) And a western mainline Seattle to LA and having spur lines which take you from the less major cities to the Main line cities. Like Charleston to Atlanta or such.
I would think a Montral-Toronto-NYC HSR line could be viable. GL getting a teafag congress to help fund it though. Maybe if Bernie manages to win the 2016 election and dems retake congress its possible.
Is there any way to like just destroy/ flag the shit out of someone's Strava account? There's a guy who is constantly taking people's KOMs on an E-Bike and he does it strictly to annoy people. I don't take Strava too seriously but it does take the fun out of rides when you technically have the 2nd fastest time on a segment but I digress.
To catch up with something you generally have to be going much faster than the target. Particularly if the target has a head start. In the case of an aircraft the difference in altitude also adds to the the head start.
I had Panaracer GravelKings in 700x28c this last season. They were pretty good. I felt like they only lasted the one season and I flatted probably 6 times between March and September riding ~150km/week.
I plan to switch to 25c next season.
I'm looking at the following tires (price is for a pair):
Are you looking for a pavement tire or a gravel tire? Also, how much do you weigh? There are other options out there depending on your answers...
1. GP4000s are a fabulous road tire, will deal with gravel tolerably well if you're a lightweight rider, good flat resistance. 2. Gatorskins have excellent flat resistance and roll well, but not as fast as the GP4000 - if you're a heavy rider. But if you're a lightweight rider, you'll likely find them slow and unpleasantly firm on gravel because the sidewalls are very stiff. 3. I'm not familiar... Comment too long.

Hey /n/ I want to start riding a bike to work so that I can lose some weight and save money on gas. I do not own a bike and I haven't owned one since I was 12. I would like some suggestions on some good brands and what the best material ,tyres, etc. for commuting to work. My route that I have planned is 4 miles with kind of crappy roads and a few railroad crossing if that helps. I just want something that will be reliable and not cost over $500.
