has anyone ever made one of these suckers?

I lost my license and where I live there's a lot of steep hills. I'm terrified of riding public transportation because there's too many niggers around here.

give me all your advice on attaching a motor to a regular bicycle.
I'm hoping to put it on a fixie, if that would work.

also post pics of motorized bicycles.

Can anyone explain to me what this is trying to say? For school I have to make something which conveys the same message but I don't understand it

Cyclists always have a right to the road, regardless of if you can see the bike lane lines or not. Could also say snow on the lines, or dirt, or that they've faded.
In certain parts of the world railroad track maintenance fails to clear the extensinve falling leaves from the rail. As trains pass over them it crushes them creating a thin, yet very slippery layer upon the railhead. This makes operations difficult and delays and cancellations iminent.

The obvious objective of this decidedly British advert is to advocate cycling instead of taking the train. It's dumb.
It's protesting against civil involvement in community maintenance.
A lot of neighbourhoods expect residents to maintain their own streets: pulling weeds out of cracks, sweeping debris off the road, et cetera.

The given text is saying "fuck that, it's the city's job."

Why do turbofans even exist when turboprops are more efficient and produce longer range?
29 replies and 4 images submitted. Click here to view.
"The cowl around the turbofan's large fan allows it to perform better than an open propeller at high speeds..."

> produce longer range

The Dash 8 400 series can take 68-86 people up to 1567 miles at 414 mph.

A comparably sized jet, the E-175 for example, can carry the same number of people up to 2400 miles at 553 mph.

An ATR 72-600 can carry about the same number of people less than 1000 miles at a cruise speed of 316 mph.
Turboprops are shorter range, though, OP. Turboprops are more fuel-efficient and cheaper to run but have shorter range, hence their being used on smaller regional lines

Why aren't contra-rotating turboprop engines used on aircraft more? They can produce an incredible amount of power, can increase efficiency by 6%-16%, and can go incredibly fast. Sure, they are a bit noisier, and the addition of the secondary propeller results in additional weight and complexity, but these don't necessarily outweigh the benefits. Take one of the only examples of these engines:

Kusnetsov NK-12MA Engine, used on both the Tupolev Tu-95 Bear and the Antonov An-22.

Because passengers are terrified of visible propellers, and the vast majority of planes that would benefit from these are for carrying passengers who could just opt for an airline that uses non-terrifying planes.

Ok, although I think passengers wouldn't really be 'terrified' of it, how about cargo operations?

Also, don't /thread your own post like an idiot.
since when does the airline industry give a shit about passenger comfort..

Will this bike finally bring all the advantages of recumbents to luddite upright riders? Honestly this thing just seems like the perfect design, it's too bad that the UCI will hold it down, because if the market were determined by the best designs everyone would be on one of these by next year. It's called the Bird of Prey and yes, I already have mine on order and will report on it when I receive it.

Why can't these go in /bqg/?
Well, since this thread is already here, anyone have experience with Seat-post bags? Not saddle bags, I am looking for something larger, and for touring, on a road bike.
I just want to get rid of anything on my back, as going up and down 3000m over 150km distance with a backpack wasn't the most pleasant experience in 35°C.
I already have a handlebar bag, which held about 3kg. The backpack was about 5kg. I could evenly distribute it to make it 4-4kg back and front.
Panniers aren't really an option, because rear wheels on a road bike are kinda closer to the...

What is objectively better on a train: A horn or a Whistle? Are they both the same or is there a difference in performance that makes one better than the other?
52 replies and 6 images submitted. Click here to view.
I love a steam whistle better. The sound just carries better (objectively and in terms of personal taste)
Not to mention it can be modulated. Each engineer had their own unique signature if you will, that others could identify him by.

I've been meaning to ask this though:
Why are American and English whistles so different?
American whistles have this deeper, commanding tone while the other sounds like an effeminate flute.
You can modulate certain horns. You just need to have the right valve. Those stupid push button ones are lame.
The best thing is no whistle at all

Anything that gets in the way of a train will and ought to be destroyed
