Re: Why no 240v off grid?

I think what you're asking is about the lack of resources, that would be because solar is still limited. My mother tried to run her agricultural facility off grid. It winds up with propane generators in key locations where the batteries can't store enough electricity, etc. Her house had some DC appl...

Re: Delta trikes vs tadpole trikes

Why? This is one of the more civil disagreements around here. So might Simon Cowell need a trike after his broken back? I'm on two wheels again, but so many say they want a recumbent once they're a bit banged up. Which of these might you think would be better? https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/09/us/simon...

Re: Eternal outskirts of Moscow and beyond (LOTS of pics!)

But meaningless scribbles i'm found extremely annoying (what's a meaning of that anyway, some gang tags or something?). It's all meaningless. I assume there it's the same as here where they have a tag name, a tag "Crew," aka gang, all of which they want to be famous. So having their name scribbled,...

Re: Please advise me on a homemade motorcycle

would vacuuming in carbon fiber instead of chopped glass help with cooling? Absolutely not. I know you're thinking of experiments with better thermal conductivity from special carbon fibers, but your average carbon fiber is more of an insulator from heat. It would trap it, not conduct it.

Re: How long do your matresses last?

If I was going to run get one in the morning, I'm sure I'd want a latex mattress. It's a hot weather mattress, while memory foam is suited to cold weather.

But a bicycle that's practical for the way you want to use it does make sense, it doesn't have to follow one standard design.

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

So you're saying a government program will work the way it's supposed to work. That the government intends to act as intended. Revenue neutral. In the same breath as "Government." It's not increased profit margins, it's increased COST. Like minimum wage increases, where the internal labor cost goes ...

Re: Where to find Super73 style ebike frame?

I wonder what's the appeal of using something like this, that's so compromised, instead of a functional normal bike?

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

So I'm getting they would take the hydrocarbons out of the air and make a hydrocarbon fuel and put them right back. Maybe better than getting new hydrocarbon fuel, but I don't think this is a real answer.
