>working as a carer to someone immobile neck down >he did it by falling off his bike at 17 >out on bicycle while he's in scooter (goes at like 10mph) >lock up my bicycle while he waits >"Why do you wear a helmet everywhere?" Do they ever learn?
Yeah I'm sure a helmet is gonna help with not getting paralyzed.
Maybe he wore a helmet during that accident and as now been redpilled that a helmet does nothing for your safety while cycling
This. If you're just going 10mph, you should be able to catch yourself with your arms and/or roll to avoid head injury. If you get hit by a car or something, you're going to be fucked with or without a helmet.
A helmet helps my head not get scraped up from branches while I'm riding singletrack.
In fact this is exactly why I don't wear one (other than the fact that they look incredibly gay): in the event of a big crash it increases the chances that my life-destroying paralysis comes packaged with a merciful death that would've been much harder to achieve later without the use of my body below my neck.
Post your favorite paint schemes
Is that Australia?
Finland. Looks like Huopalahti station in Helsinki. It's a Sm2.

I think I only like it because of the nostalgia of watching these go by my house as a kid
Jesus christ I've fucking had it with these things
>Neighbors leave them in the back yard >Lime scooter guy drops fucking THREE of them off EVERY GOD DAMNED DAY by the time I get home in the morning in my parking spot THATS NOT EVEN A PUBLIC PARKING SPOT. I've called them, I've emailed them, I've complained to the city, and I got nowhere. I've started throwing them down in the embankment across the road behind my house when the neighbor leaves them in front of my garage door or on my lawn, and I've hucked the 3 of them in the front into the bushes, and YET they end right back up in the places that annoy the fuck out of me. What the fuck do I do /n/? Do i start slashing the tires on them? over volt the batteries? set them on fire?
Scooters are dangerous. Those small wheels won't take much to pitch the rider over the handlebars. These, and heavy rental bikes are a ploy by the cager cult to make people stick to cars.
A folding bike will give you better reliability, or a full size bike if you can leave it at the garage.
We actually had a literal dumpster fire here because someone tossed one into a dumpster and the battery exploded lel
Except they never pay the fine they just ship in more. The police department here impounded hundreds of those things and they just kept shipping new ones in. They said they never paid the fine so there is just a bunch of scooters sitting in impound somewhere.
Nope. Fuck e-bikes, they are useless.
E-scooters are usable.
Fuck rental too
Why is it so shit? Even third world countries have cheaper and more consistent service than this garbage heap. Why is it genuinely cheaper, faster, and easier to get from Cairo to Alexandria than to get from Suffolk County to New York City?
shit infrastructure and a federal government that still does not give a damn about it
because new york city and state politicians care more about their territorial pissing matches than they do about executing the core functions of the agencies which they oversee
What third world country has better service than the LIRR? Genuinely curious.
In terms of frequency for commuter rail?
Jakarta, Sao Paulo, the list goes on...
-t. West Hempstead Branch commuter
The advanced age of the infrastructure is part of it. For instance, the oldest stretch of right-of-way still in use by the NYC subway dates back to 1864.
ya'll are fucking gay
I'll just try it again I guess.
From what I know: Hamburg >U5 is planned but Sengelmannstraße will be ugly. Also it will end at the stadium while the S-Bahn will serve Osdorfer Born. Only question mark right now for the U5 is the area around Siemersplatz, hopefully it will be served directly. >Within the next few years, the bus network will be completely overhauled, with every important bus line joining the metro bus brand, also express buses without extra fees. I might make an autistic google doc about what I think should happen >Annual fare rise in December, as usual >S4 constructions planned to start in Hasselbrook in late 2020, with preperation work set to start in 2019. Schleswig-Holstein >DB is permanently constructing the Sylt line and the locos there are still shit >The Kiel-Schönberg railway line that should be reactivated is still getting the okay from the government despite cost rises >still no set date for construction for the Fehmarnbelt tunnel because german governments are fucking useless Berlin >U5 extension to Central Station should be done by 2020 >BER still a shitfest with select S-Bahn trains ending literally nowhere thanks to DB trying to not let the tracks rust >other cities idk desu Anything about public or alternative transport in Germany, Switzerland and Austria is fair game.
Yeah but it takes a full day. Imagine ferrying literally all of your worldly belongings through three regional trains with only two or three people
Was ist schlimmer als Verlieren?
>>1389702 >all of your worldly belongings through three regional trains with only two or three people
Oh, sorry, didn't really catch that "moved".
That's quite a feat then. Did the conductors not complain?
It's one thing to take a Billy home from IKEA on a train, it's another to take one along when moving.
>>1389602 >A friend of mine moved from Siegen to Hamburg only by regional train with three people.
A friend of a friend moved from Berlin to Bochum via ICE. He just recruited people at the door to move his stuff in and out. But I guess he certainly had not a lot of stuff. Only stuff besides luggage that was specifically mentioned in the story was a large-ish palm tree.
Dunno what the conductors said, I wasn't there to witness it.
That's a smart thing to do if you don't have a car at your disposal. Not having to change three times along the way is a big boon to doing it by HSR. I have so far used cars in every single moving in which I was involved.
In Zurich after the opening of tram line 2 extension trolleybus line 31 has been cut back, as it ran parallel to this new tram extension. Interestingly this tram line existed in the past as part of the same line 2 but was converted to trolleybus and joined with trolleybus 31 which replaced tram line 1.
Anyway, at the new trolleybus terminus new wires have been hung for the new trolley loop. I thought they were going to have the buses turn around on battery power, but nope, they did build new wires.
Can we get a RIP for all the locomotives and car boxes?
What happened to it?
> With deaths spiking on pavement, riders are choosing to go where cars can’t > Bicyclists are dying on our streets, and, if you hadn’t noticed, people are pissed off about it. The statistics are grim: in the U.S., 2016 was the deadliest year for cyclists in a quarter century. https://www.outsideonline.com/2401088/cyclists-leaving-roads-for-dirt
pretty cool-looking bike i like that shade of pink
Yeah. This is more of a hate the fans situation... Matt Crust seems like a great person
Yeah a Matt is a cool guy. The brand itself is sometimes a bit too tryhard in its cant-give-a-fuck coolness but the bikes are well thought out evolutions of where Rivendell could have gone if Grant hadn't crawled up his own ass and died. I like that he's doing a lot of interpretations of the old /n/ meme of 26" MTB+slix because 26x2.3 slick is fuckin awesome.
Walmart customers are homer simpsons
It's like tough mudders, it looks cool, hard and manly so it literally doesn't matter if you're an unathletic subhuman who finishes last. Most normies look at road races and think "oh you're riding on a paved road, big deal, people do that all the time" having no idea of how challenging it actually is and not understanding the more technical aspects of road racing, as long as something looks superficially more tough and challenging it will always get more recognition from retarded people.
This is the ideal GRID system. You may not like it, but this is what peak planning looks like.
Yeah, I'm fine with keeping the gays, darkies, and thots in one concentrated urban shit hole while I enjoy my ten acres of peace and quiet in the country.
There's no room.
>>1386119 >how about get rid of cities completely there is no reason post Industrial Revolution to have so many people living in such a small space. there is no reason to have buildings more than 4 stories high. there is no reason that more than 10000 people need to live in one area. there is no reason that workers in offices cannot work from home.
The Canadian election season has started, it will last one month.
The Green party is doing amazing well. The Greens are a far left wing party focused on environmental issues.
As the rest of the world goes populist so do we. We are just more polite about it.
What happened last time:
Whatever happens we are the most educated Country in the world so it will be the right thing to do:
>>1389989 >>1389996 >anything right of Mao is at worst "center-left"
Do they want to force everyone to drive electric cars and eat bugburgers? Then they're far left.
There is not a single political party in the world that advocates this, my frogposting friend
>>1390037 >There is not a single political party in the world that advocates this
I guess technically "The entire continent of Europe" isn't a political party...
Hey, Whole Foods has gotten a lot better since Amazon acquired them. They also appeal to Gen X, not Boomers.
GTFO with your propaganda.
