how much should I sell project frankencycle for?
C-dale r600 frame, felt bars, diamondback stem, generic nashbar carbon fork. generic gravity seat post off my old 29er. diamondback equation R wheels.
force FD, 5700 RD, 4800 shifters, 5700 12-32 cassette. some sram chain I had laying around. pedals that came with a GT grade (junk but quite nice without the straps) oh decent jag wire housing I had left over and some very nice sram cable ends I have from a very nice orbea build.
No not looking to make a profit, but I do like building up bikes and I am very good with my hands / mechanically very competent. oh that frame is paint stripped and rubbed out to 320 grit, looks like fresh satin aluminum, clear coated then hit with rubbing compound to clean up the rattle can pain job,

ok /n/. I have seen multiple threads talking about Cincinnati and how its streetcar system is one of the newest streetcar projects in America. I was wondering, what is our infatuation with these new types of streetcars? They all look bland, every city has them, and even good paint jobs can only make them barely appealing.
Honestly, why doesn't Cincinnati get historic streetcars? Over-The-Rhine and Cincinnati in general is a very historic city that was built up between the 19th and early 20th centuries. I think older streetcars would attract more people, would be easier to operate, and would just "fit" Cincinnati so much better.
Is servicing these things challenging? Hell, install those hidden lift things for handicapped people like buses do. Why don't cities embrace these types of streetcars?
