Pic related is the based tier BMT AB Standard train, with seat placement, adjustable windows, ceiling fans, innovative conductor-controlled automatic doors, automatic couplers(including automatic voltage connectors), and electric headlights.
Not strictly a mini velo, but smaller than your typical road bike (22" wheels). It's fun to ride, light and manoeuvrable.
Issues you might run into are gearing (smaller wheels = lower gearing) so don't expect to be able to go as fast as a bike with bigger wheels. Then there's ground clearance, my pedals and crank arms have plenty of scrapes either from riding too close to curbs or not lifting the pedal enough whilst cornering.
>>892177 I suppose it could be viewed as a half assed compromise between the two. A shopkeeper who might object to a full size bike in the aisles might not say anything if it's a mini velo. Or on a moderately full train, where a regular bike would be a no-go, it might work with a minivelo.
Plus a mini velo can be made at a lower cost than a folder, since it's less complex.
In terms of fuel efficiency and general capacity, what would be the best airliner to replace the E-3 sentry?
Its airframe is based off the Boeing 707 which is a pretty old design and the E-3s themselves were introduced 40 years ago. So what features do you think would be important? I hear twin engines are more efficient but wouldn't 4 better for redundancy since this is a military aircraft?
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.
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.
I am thinking of getting my first bike anytime soon and due to license limitations I can only ride a 250cc bike for two years, then I can upgrade to a full powered bike I'm looking for a good starter bike with some beginner mistakes toleration which is also fun to ride, I've heard the CBR250R is a good one for starters
I might take little tours on the bike, so a bike with touring capabilities would be good
Learner 250. OK. This shape because all that plastic doesn't have any effect until you're flat out in top and flat out in top doesn't help you learn how not to fall of while parking. Not falling off while parking,turning is a useful skill when you have a $200 a side bits of plastic plus the pedals and levers to replace.
>>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... Comment too long.

>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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>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.
