It made sense at the time, sure, lower costs, but broad gauge is superior, and enables higher speeds, while encouraging broader, safer rights of way.
>Imagine 7ft track gauge but with with the sort of loading gauges you see in US/RU
>>1440893 >enables higher speeds
What gauge are all of the world's high speed trains again? 1435 mm
What gauge is the Queensland Rail tilt train, just as fast as the XPT or Vlocity? 1067 mm
>encouraging broader, safer rights of way
false equivalence between structure gauge and track gauge. Broader track gauge may encourage broader structure gauge but US standad gauge is some of the broadest in the world nevertheless.
This thread is nothing but broad gauge propaganda.
Surely there's enough of us around we can have a general?
Here's some talking points - Sydney Metro - Melbourne Metro - Cross-river rail - There are NO regional trains in South Australia and The Overland will probably die at the end of the year, thanks to constant neglect by successive SA governments - Why the Melbourne B2 is the best tram in Australia and nothing will ever surpass it

it's your imagination
Won't work. Using the Sydney Road example, if you look up north of Coburg North you'll find four lanes of car traffic. If you look down south at Royal Parade you'll find four lanes of car traffic, two lanes of trams, and even space for parking. And in between you're proposing to have only two lanes of car traffic along with the two lanes of trams. Sydney Road is a major north/south artery. It will be permanent gridlock. Especially during peak times, since at the moment the parking lanes on Sydney Road are actually clearways for those parts of the day. What it needs to look like is the tiny section between Ohea Street and Bell Street. That's the only section of Sydney Road that has trams and is actually wide enough.
The picture you've got there already has the trams separated out from car traffic, since it's actually wide enough like that tiny Ohea/Bell section of Sydney Road. I'm not familiar with Bridge Road, but I'd guess the parking lanes are probably clearways during peak hours too.
Trams going zoom!!!
>>1440309 >those trams
>as you can see from the fact that I am wearing $1200 John Lobbs to pedal my $5000 custom made Tru-Temper Stroopwafel Heerfietserwagon™ I am totally just a down to earth regular guy wearing regular clothes I totally didn't special order from an obscure ultra-expensive Copenhagen "not for cyclists" cycling clothes boutique. Why in fact I haven't carefully planned every aspect of my uncyclist image to ape what I saw on vacation in Amsterdam, this is what the Italians call "sprezz", I'm just a carefree guy who happens to be on a bike, which I just happen to own and is not at all a fashion accessory just like my $120 box calf pant leg holder from lapassioe (that's a brand, you've probably never heard of it, I know it looks just like a $2 piece of plastic from Ali Express, I'm not a fashion slave like you it's about UNBRANDING and ARTISANAL CRAFTSMANSHIP) >Ugh, your bike has a derailleur? How JUDGMENTAL, what YEAR is it you judgmental NIMBY racer boomer?!? No more zoning! Zoning is like checking your tire pressure, this is not a race, why so racist?! Earth tones brother, do cars come in hi-viz? Of course not because the Stvzo would have said so, oh, you've never been to Germany, you absolutely must some time you would love it. Why are you wearing a crash helmet, they don't do that in Amsterdam! Vehicular cycling is TOXIC MASCULINITY, get that disgusting racing bike out of MY city, this is NOT a race! I am SO chill and unraced, not like those JUDGMENTAL tryhards who don't wear all natural fibers in subdued, earth-friendly colors on their leather and steel UNBRAND custom bikes (it doesn't have a model it was made to order because I am so unique!)
t. bought NB because a totally grassroots not at all organized social media campaign said it helps fight white genocide
You did the exact same thing bro lol you got tricked by marketing
It wasn't a trick in my case. I needed running shoes. These upset you, in an arena (pro franchise sports) that I have no stake in and don't care about at all. You on the other hand seethe every time a black athlete kneels because you're a mindless consumer of war reenactments involving scantily clad men grabbing each other's nuts.
So I got what I needed to get anyway, with nothing given up on my part, and you got triggered and traumatized. I see that as a win-win.
as you can see from the fact that I am wearing a £60 Wilson tracksuit to pedal my 8 yr old Bolshie-red Raleigh Airlite 300, which was a sensible £750 pound investment, I am totally just a down to earth regular guy wearing regular clothes, i totally didn't special order, like my aforementioned Wilson tracksuit I got on sale from a gloomy and tired looking tennis shop in putney, staffed by an obscure bald man, with a filipino bride 30 years his junior. Why in fact I haven't carefully planned every aspect of my cyclist image to resemble what I imagine a bookshop owner would look like if he took up cycling. this is what the my grandfather called, "looking the part" . It's not at all a fashion accessory just like my £70 casio watch my dipsy wife brought me, I hate the daft thing, but I wear it to show my wife that I care, even though I take it off when I actually meet anyone to avoid looking like a cheap git.
Substance over style is my motto, this is why I like Marxism, and wanted to install it in the UK, so everyone can ride a Raleigh and Wilson tracksuits and be the same. because choice is indulgence.
they got your money because theyre smarter than you lol
11-23 10 speed was the pinnacle of road cassettes both aesthetically and functionally. Everything before this was ass. Everything after this was a downgrade. Wide range cassettes are an aesthetic abomination, the wheel equivalent of roast beef curtains or saggy breasts. Are you weak? Yes you are weak. Why not get strong instead of slapping a butt ugly uggo cassette and ruining the looks of your bike.
Thank you for listening to my podcast please rate it on apple Itunes.
>>1436582 >he thinks 52/15 is not a leglet ratio >>1437229 >he thinks vintage touring geometry is "been there done that"
This isn't wrong, but your bike had better be in better-than-new condition or you're just rationalizing being a dirtbag
my dude i have worked on a bike with 11s friction
maybe you shiftlets should learn some fine motor skills
There is a growing trend that seems to be wanting to reinvent the wheel.
Included in this category of Work Bike Fails is the attempt to "innovate" using any type of configuration that seems "different" to demonstrate the capacity to carry anything they want around town for a quick buck, as long as their Smart Phones are turned on and are feeding them 3 dollar tokens for a few miles of "Customer Service" for a company that does not even exist except behind a facade of a few computerized networks. I am not against this opportunity to make money by bike, but as a designer and pioneer of this industry, I find that the majority of these newer Work Bikes are somewhat trivial in their addition of numerous accessories. This thread is for the demonstration of any crappy new design that is falsely marketed for commercial purposes and to critique their design flaws. Please join me....I know you too have seen this around town in different form.
my maximus has a low speed, high torque motor. not sure exactly what it is, but it runs on a marine battery. top speed 10.2mph lol
spacing and autism >checks out
no one cares fagget
Isn't it just as likely that there are poor quality unmotivated builders? And loads of compromises for manufacturing reasons?
Pic somewhat thread related.
I especially love this Punisher
It makes THEM pedal as the driver just steers the bike around.....lol
Oh just get ripped sloshed on the stool and pedal yourself wherever you want, I'll just sit here and take your money, and turn this little wheel while we all gather around the bar and talk about the newest thang in engineering on the streets.
That thing goes nowhere fast....and takes you just as far.
Imagine being the only one on the bike doing all the work.
They actually do pretty well in the streets that allow drinking and driving in a moving vehicle....if that is something you are into....more power to you.
I don't know where to find the planefags but I need this confirmed/proven false before monday's rally. This could be massive
I don't see any activity, at least aircraft squaking. That being said the VA Air Guard does not have U-28 aircraft assigned to it, meaning Federal assets are now being deployed.
What's the likelihood of that happening?
Here is good but this isn't an active board. I'm usually checking out gun threads on /k/, arguing with Brazilians on /int/ or having a good fap on /gif/
I'm not a regular channer, I'm just trying to get some info for anyone going on monday, and this is the definition of 'big if true'
You can go to
(theres even an app) and zoom in over Richmond. Usually military aircraft do not squak though when conducting operations.
Wash and polish those fine steeds. Refine those camera angles. Dare to post your bike and avoid the wrath of the evil (Youman)
Yes those are both v brake lever
I still cannot get enough Power from these discs
If i were to change, should i go for nice v brakes or entry hydros?
Lurker from another board. Beautiful build. How did you fit suck huge tires on this? Is it a MTB frame or?
Continuing the theme of bikes in front of water leaned against a fence...
hey buddy we have the same tyres

>>1440751 >Qantas Flight 72
Ok... no one died on that flight. Also, it was an Air Data Inertial Reference Unit, ADIRU which was manufactured by Northrup Grumann which failed and resulted in the sudden nose down manuvouers. The aircraft entered Alternate Law after the aircraft realised that there could not be simultaneously a stall and overspeed occuring.
No such incidents had ever occured before and no such incidents have occured since.
>>1440756 >no one died on that flight
because they were at high altitude, and the pilot knew that the computer was faulty. if this had been a less experienced pilot, that flight would have had no survivors. human interference was the only thing that saved that flight, and likey many others considering the massive cover ups in the aviation industry.
ban automated flying.
>>1440766 >this casual conversation with the tower
What an absolute madness.
Thoughts on this project?
My main qualm is, it only serves the waterfront areas (which are already built-up and subway-accessible). I just don't see how it improves mobility or spurs investment if this is its route. It should go a little deeper into Brooklyn and Queens to help spur development.
Maybe the bare upper end of bed-stuy, and by “Manhattan” you mean the first stop downtown.
I still definitely think there needs to be an express LRT that goes from the middle/outer boroughs to LIC and downtown Brooklyn.
The Bronx actually has good transit access.
But I don’t see any reason to give it a direct connection to Queens. Brooklyn and Queens should get more connection though.
People in the outer boroughs either stay in their boroughs or commute to Manhattan for work. I don't think there's a large enough population commuting from the Bronx to Queens to make it worth it. HOWEVER having lived in the Bronx during college I would have appreciated a sweet line like the one I've added to this map. I included a station at Rikers under the assumption that the plan to close and redevelop it follows through.
Yeah, let’s give the trustfund baby in her Williamsburg loft another way to get to her goat yoga class in LIC. There are surely no worthier projects the MTA could work on
You basically just repeated the OP.
Ukraine International Airlines flight 752 from Tehran to Kiev crashed shortly after takeoff from the Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport.
The Boeing 737-800 was carrying 180 passengers aboard.
>>1439189 >are you this bad at trolling?
They got you to reply, so they can't be that bad.
Great logical argument compdredor!
And of course once again there is something of a pattern here and it is not "Boeing"
The patterning is in the numbers of the dates. The ETP cipher that was found on the desk of the Aerospace Engineering Student, who was killed in Paris was the key and the cipher showed exactly what was being given to their operatives to target said planes. All of the downings of planes, subs, and ships being attacked are a part of a constant threat by the US Navy, their mini Shuttle, and their cabal that are planning out ciphers to target them with planted explosives The cipher ETP was posted backwards, written to show the explosive PTE The cipher spoke of an Equal Time Point....all reflective around the times of the MH370, the first targeted, and the later planes that were targeted with "treasure maps" planted online using the dates that were patterned in their series and the IMARSAT Data that was dropped in the "search" for the plane. Which we all saw was a joke lasting for years by the "Independent Group" The end justifies the means they say, but in this case the ET302 used the ETP cipher to deliver instructions about this plane being a pivotal time that helped them target and calculate the many that were to follow. 1/7/202 was the date that began their cycle of these ciphers to be continued, alternating around the fabled ciphers of the Messages in Bottles that were found dropped in the Alster/Hamburg areas Search /ProjectArchiteuthis on FB All the ciphers are broken there for a review. The Russians, Iranians, French, Italian, German, Canadian, Malaysian, Indonesian Air Investigators, and Boeing have all been contacted. There is a map that they drew....Alessio even spoke of the coming of an internet persona named GRETA HARYSON.
Now there were at least 7 of these ciphers dropped in bottles into the lake in Germany
If all the countries and Boeing were informed, and then the French Air Investigators that were coming to the US to conduct part of their investigations, AND then the CIA and their cronies were blocking Visas to their international investigation teams, then there is a reason that the US is implicated in, as they are trying to stop these investigations from getting answers that would help them figure out who this was. There are a ton of facts that can be seen to draw the suspicion on the cabal that Trump is not only funded by but controlled by. SOROS being the source, and the man on the RADAR of numerous nations. The man is taking money from the "Superbucks" scandals and their laundering locations at the HSBC and Fuji Bank in the WTC and is navigating the globe with these funds He is now throwing it into Tesla for a bump and trying to "help" his fellow cabal members Sanders introduces the Green New Deal and only is moving US Vehicles into the plan to be converted to Electric Vehicles, and Tesla is conveniently the only one there to harness this all? Cmon this is an easy trend to spot. Now Tesla wants to launch a web into space to try to network the internet, while the entire web will be flown OVER other countries violating the International Space Treaties that are in place, so he can sieve data through their networks for the purpose of spying and gathering technical data from the Israeli intermediaries like SITE and others that play middleman to the NSA and DOD in the US. Basic umbrella project using "crowdsourcing" funds as a cover when the whale then dumps his load of laundered money into these businesses as a front that Tesla and Musk play as a front. Nothing like a mass marketed trend to cover up for the affairs that are being played AT THE SAME TIME as planes are being taken out of the sky. Of course SOROS is investing in non-Boeing stocks...as are his buddies.
