700x28 is the patrician tier option for 98% of real-world cycling. I say "real world" to distinguish it from the fantasy world some dream of, where you're riding over boulders to escape from zombies or whatever. The bike equivalent of civilians buying a heavily armored off road military truck to drive to the hair salon. They think to themselves, "instead of steering around that object like a normal person, I will show dominance by steering into it". In this way, they hope to resemble Arnold Schwarzenegger's character from an action film, or worse yet perhaps they are simply copying the actor's real life fashion. But rather than fashion, in real life bikes are for transportation and 98% of transportation happens on a road hence ROAD BIKES which a certain confused subculture seems to think can only be used in a velodrome under tightly controlled conditions.

There is nothing wrong with a smaller tire if that is your preference. Many of the finest bikes ever made came with 700x23 or smaller. But people who select larger tires invariably have small dick syndrome. I think you know who I mean. You've seen them in your neighborhood. You see them when you override your own common sense and decide to go out for a ride on a nice Sunday with perfect weather when the plebs who hate cycling until that one day the weather is nice and suddenly they're a cyclist today are out in full force.. You even see it online. Those pictures of Putin riding his knobby boing-boing dual suspension novelty joke bike on the sidewalk with no shirt on like the neighborhood dirtbag riding to the liquor store, right? Weak, insecure "strong man" logic. Ever notice John Kerry doing that? No of course not he's got a real bike for adults. Because I guarantee you Kerry has a bigger, thicker penis even at his advanced age. I rest my case.

Anyway this is a true incontrovertible facts thread. What are some other interesting facts about transportation?

wat?
Well 1chan.net works but there's no update on the issue. This is weird, mike has been pretty active admin over all and just recently made a mega update that finally brought working catalog and and even mp4:s! Life was good, thought occasionally we would get weird bots pushing Korean nationalist propaganda or giving invites to porn sites. Well, then came the wave of CP bots...

I speculate, could the chan have been deleted and his site locked by the server owner (I assume modern leased server) , or worse - he's received an inconvenient phone call from the pigs, or just freaked out. It's noteworthy that before he posted a message that posting would be temporarily disable because of the problem. Well, like a day later, below that -sum CP again...

So this is how things are, a believe it went down thursday or so.

Just FYI, discuss.

Why isn't the New Orleans model for public transportation followed more widely?

>old heritage streetcars running on a dedicated right of way but at grade, in the middle of thick ass boulevards
>because all of the tracks are running at ground level in a street that already has free real estate in the middle, building a stop is as simple as a crosswalk and a sign
>because the cars don't go that fast to begin with, you can put the stations everywhere without slowing down travel times, ensuring access even in lower density suburban areas
>because it's a slow car that's going on an exclusive right of way 90% of the time, you can hire 14 year olds to drive it, keeping labor costs low as fuck
>because labor costs are low as fuck, you can run in single car configuration all the time, enabling high service frequency even in the less used lines
>because dedicated right of way, you never get stuck in traffic, and travel times are pretty good even at the low speeds
>combine all of these factors, and service is fast, cheap, and has stops all over the city
>looks aesthetic as fuck, cars look almost the exact same as the cars that were in service a century ago
>rolling through the tracks at ground level, at low speeds, without other cars near you is scenic as fuck, can open a window and just take in the city

The only downsides that I see are that getting the space for a dedicated right of way requires pre-existing boulevards, extensive rebuilding, or planning in advance.

Why hasn't anyone made a boat with a space to put their car on?
I'm not talking about a yacht with a garage, just a spot with a lot of wood or something that can hold the weight of something capable of towing the boat, so you can drive the boat to a dock, put it in the water, put the car in/on the boat, then drive to the other side of the lake and reverse the process? Like your own personal ferry service.
