Fuck this. The two buses in this picture are supposed to be fifteen (15) minutes apart. But somehow the first one (operated by Deutsche Bahn) manages to amass an insane amount of delay on its much shorter route, almost every time. In this case, it was almost 20 minutes late. Somehow, the bus operated by the local transport authority (the second one in this picture) is never more than five minutes late, and mostly on time outside of rushhour. It travels about three kilometers through a densely populated urban area before sharing its route with the other bus.

>The Granite State Poll, conducted by the UNH Survey Center from January 27-February 6, 2011, showed overwhelming support for the Capital Corridor project generally, and strong support from all areas of the state and across all political parties and ideologies. There is also strong support for the project among the business community in Nashua and Manchester, including the respective chambers of commerce and New Hampshire Businesses for Transportation and Infrastructure. Local elected officials of both parties have also expressed support for the project,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>976929 Could you elaborate what the problem here is? Politicians not keeping their promises after the election? >>976931 Are you sure they don't just send twice or thrice the number of buses for larger crowds? I've seen that happen around here, especially with school buses.
What are /n/'s thoughts on a bike GPS? I recently got into cycling and would like to do longer rides than simply riding around the local neighbor hood 5 times but I'm terrible with navigation and sometimes even manage to get lost with GPS. I also panic easily and I don't want to venture into an unknown area and get lost. I was looking at various garmin models and figured I would go all out with their top of the line model, the edge 1000, granted I would have to save and pinch pennies for a few months to afford it but I figure it would be worth it to just go for...

>>982176 Are you shilling for Garmin or something?
GPS on a bike is only really useful for loading pre-determined routes into so you don't get lost on a long ride or somewhere you're not familiar with. I've got a Joule GPS (which the upgraded me to for free when two non-GPS Joule's came up defective) and 95% of the time the GPS itself is turned off because I know where I'm going.

So I went to the local bike shop (there is only one I know of in Radford VA I know of) for the first time. My front brake was making a weird sound when being used. No squeaking just a kinda soft scraping sound at regular intervals. Also I had it adjusted as far as it could go without dragging but the length of pull on was still long as hell. Pads are fairly worn but not completely worn out yet. Anyways I take it into the shop and the dude says he can't hear the sound and my brakes are fine. I think "ok, good. Was probably a fluke or some shit. I can... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>982000 Using the front brake is perfectly safe if you have conventional brakes. It only became a meme to avoid it because of all the freds and their disc brakes which can lock the front wheel with only one finger. It's a liability disaster that will probably sink many of the biggest players in bike manufacturing in the coming years
The guy at your LBS is obviously a fred, that's why I do my own repairs. I refuse to support ignorant leeches who prey on yuppies with too much money

>>980995 Because bisykles are generally designes for carrying people and some amount of cargo. Attaching a 30-50kg object that causes the bike to move nearly 100kmh to a sub 500 money currency bike with alu frame could prove to be problematic in some areas.
Not that I have any personal experiences with this.
>>980970 I live in a neighborhood in SF with a lot of hilly streets, which makes biking a pain in the ass. There is this route across the city called the wiggle that makes it easier since it's flatter, but that doesn't really do anything for my neighborhood.
Reminder that gen 1.1 is the ONLY true /n/ jersey. >based on gen 1 design, not some stupid forced meme like "nomads" >replaces death cage "buses" with "boats" >incorporates board color >free of design flaws (such as the rear sprocket being too low on gen 1) >looks far better than any other /n/ jersey
So did anyone see that TrainSpotting Live show? One episode in and it's already getting shit on for using old footage.
>The BBC has admitted it went off the rails when it failed to highlight that it was using five-month-old footage in Trainspotting Live. During the show, which aired on BBC4 on Monday night, host Peter Snow excitedly told viewers that there was live footage of a diesel locomotive travelling along a track. “We’ve just seen one going past,” he said. “There we are, Class 66.”
