I.E. (light) trains that run on street. What so great about them compared to buses, light rail with dedicated lines and metro lines?

I don't see the appeal or the advantages. My city got rid of them long before I was born, so the whole idea seem weird, alien and old fashioned. What am I missing?

Without dedicated right of way, there are literally no advantages over trolleybuses.

This.

I think the appeal of streetcars is mostly aesthetic. If they ran on their own ROW they're pretty efficient and can also hold much more people than even a 60ft artic bus.

A bus can have a ROW just like a tram could. Their main advantage is CAPACITY, since modern tram systems (Portland is one of the exceptions) allow capacities far larger than any bus ever could. Here in Barcelona our 2nd gen tram system allows for 60m long trams, which would carry over 400 passengers per unit. For a comparison, a double articulated bus can carry about 180, and will have many problems navigating tight corners.

My dad keeps pressuring me to learn how to drive but I really don't want to.

I don't even know why, but I look down on people that drive cars. It's something that has been embedded into my subconscious and I can't get rid of it anymore.
It has gotten to the point where I think it is ethically and morally wrong to drive a car.

Am I wrong to think this way? I have walked and used the train my entire life.
I'm thinking about building a bike rather than buying one. This won't be for a couple years down the line since I am in college...

It's better to know how to, and be licensed to legally operate a motor vehicle than to be unable. You can have a license but not own a car. Assuming you live in the United States, there are circumstances in which being able to carry the kind of cargo or passengers a car is capable of containing matters. Medical emergencies, for example, taking a friend to the airport, or ever being somewhere outside of a city for more than a day, are simplified tremendously when you have the options a motor vehicle affords you.

Nah, you should definitely buy a complete bike to start out on.

Putting a bike together from parts is only cheaper if you already have all the necessary tools, knowledge that will keep you from making costly mistakes, and can source parts inexpensively. The retail price of parts plus the retail price of a frame always adds up to more than the retail price of a complete bike, and that's before you factor in the time and labor involved.

I’ve been given the 'girl-version' of this bike by an old friend who’s just upgraded. Its mostly in good condition,a bit creaky, requiring some work on the breaks, and probably soon a new tire.

Questions?
how good/bad of a bike is this?
is it worth the investment to fix?
And what should I know/look for as a novice?

Also Im moving to a place where biking is actually possible so i’d love to get back into it.
Whats the best place to learn about bike repair and maintenance?

let's talk small-wheeled road bikes

where my lads at riding anything smaller than 700c? although that size is more or less indisputably the best for road racing, I've already got a race bike and would like something a little more nimble for urban use

the most common sizes are pretty much the largest, after 700c it's 650b which you'll see on touring bikes and smaller frame sizes. 650c/26" is pretty much reserved for really small women's bikes and, again, touring bikes. 24" is only for kid's roads bikes, and 20" is for...

Is 700c even the best? I thought it was just mindless traditionalism like all of the uci rules.

>>983099
there are some arguments that 650b or 650c is more aerodynamic than 700c, but 700c requires the least power to roll over long distances (relative to 650c/b at least), and because bicycle racing is historically done in a peloton over long distances, 700c became the standard

does nobody here really ride anything other than 700c?

when doing extreme high alpha manouvers the rudder can get a lot of turbulent flow from the front of the wind, loosing some control, the stabilizers on the bottom dont have that problem. im not sure if this is the case for this paricular aicraft but for some it is.

Are hub gear equipped bikes any good?

It seems that while in theory they are good because they can shift while stationary,are more weatherproof than a derailleur system with exposed chain and cogs and maybe some other things.
I hear only things about skipping,grinding noises,fucked up hubs and other problems I don't know if hub gears are actually good.

Of course there's A LOT of different models from different manufacturers.

Are there any bad ones or good ones?

It's hard to tell. High end IG systems like nuvinci, rolhoff, pinion, etc cost so much that is hard to have a fair opinion

People who drop $300 on a hub convince themselves it rules

I see bike tourists hyping rolhiff when they are stuck in Cambodia and it breaks... And the company sends them a new one. Doesn't sound so great to me

I've heard some bad stuff about belt drives on geared hubs due to debris and snow getting between the belt / cogs. I'd stick with a chain if I got one.

Alfine 8 seems to be pretty solid, though big jumps between gears. I've heard of people blowing up Alfine 11 hubs, though that seems to be mostly due to exceeding the recommended ratios trying to get extra low end for mtb / fat biking.
