What are the biggest urban/transportation planning blunders your city committed?
In the Twin Cities during the construction of the interstate between the downtowns they bulldozed almost all of the preeminent black neighborhood to acquire the needed right of way. There is now a block wide trench that separates the neighborhood. You can see with this map on the left side where the black neighborhood mostly was and where they placed the interstate. I have a feeling a number of cities have made mistakes with their construction of interstates through their city.

>>1003948 Do not even get me started with people like that. They think they are sooo superior and fast so treat people like shit. But 9/10 they are fucking crap despite looking all quick. I chase and drop everyone who does that. They are the fag cyclists that everyone hates sooo much. And to make things even worse they are the majority of roadies out there. MTB isn't much better but it's better none the less.
They make the Evasion frame (named after a Crimethinc book about a vegan straight edge anarchist who stole and scammed everything, and freed a bunch of mink + other ecoterrorism before he went to jail)
This bike is probably #2 on the hot hipster frames after Elephant NFEs. Third is Soma Wolverine
26+ touring bike
They also make a 66.6cm drop bar because The Devil
Just was hit last night but thankfully not badly at all. Right ribcage is slightly bruised, lips a bit bruised, feel a bit nauseous though and just generally sluggish, and couldn't stomach anything but 2 slices of bread this morning, even though I normally eat like 1k calories for breakfast.
Anyone else have similar symptoms? I have work and school in like a couple of hours and don't want to pass out/die half way through class/work
>>1002864 Yep. I was racing home to watch something on TV with some people, and started to salmon cycle like a retard. Guy in a truck making a right (or maybe just tying to cross) onto the road I was on the left side of drove DIRECTLY into me. Glasses were thrown, I took the hit entirely to my face and shoulder. He got halfway out of his car, but I just took a serious header and was embarrassed about being where I shouldn't, so I didn't make a scene about making him stay, so the fucker left. (I wonder if...

About 10 years ago i swapped most of the parts of my bike for various shit. (most of the hardware is now Deore) Then i stopped riding a bike. Now i want to get back into commuting with my bike but i realized that it is too slow. I think my front chainrings are too small. Is is possible to swap the largest one for a larger chain ring?
>>1002360 Pump up those tires and see whether they hold air.
If not > new tubes.
Cracks in the sidewall of the tire are not necessarily = dead tire. If the carcass is sound (fabric) you can use them for a while.
See if the brakes work. If they are hard to press, you want to a) take out the cables and put some oil into the housing b) use new housing and cables c) check the caliper arms. If they don't move easily, take off and use grease on the bosses, then reassemble. d) Check whether... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
That is a concept bike which gears can be shifted by brainwaves. If you had any idea how to build you werent on /n/ asking how to do it. Do yourself a favor and start by patching a flat tube and replacing a chain.
>>1002320 You don't. It'd cost you far more to build a bike from the frame up than it would to just go in a shop and pay full retail for one, because the startup costs to work with even aluminum, let alone carbon fiber, would eat you alive. This is not even addressing the issue of learning how to weld properly, or learning how to work with carbon fiber properly, or learning how to design a bike frame properly in the first place. You want to do all those things, plan on spending the next 10 years learning the ropes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've got a cable lock and a D lock and both came with bike mounts that I used for a while but eventually it became easier to just carrying them in my backpack. Because I often ride my bike without needing to lock it up or use the backpack and the times when I do need to lock it up is when I need my backpack as well. So the locks just stay in the backpack now.
A couple of years ago I was gifted a Kona Dew Plus, a hybrid bike. I rode it maybe about 70 miles all together and for whatever reason became disenchanted by it because I wanted a road bike. That didn't happen and my cycling career ended. But now I need to exercise, do cardio, and I want to get into shape... and I hate running so I pulled it out of storage.
It's a pretty sweet bike to be honest, don't know why I became bitchy about it. Some nuts rusted but nothing on the frame and it's essentially in perfect condition just dusty and the tires are... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Most LBS do a full overhaul for 100-150$ but you dont need to do that, get some generic degreaser at a hardware store for like 10 bucks clean the drivetrain and buy bike specific chain lube and lube the chain, Use the videos at GCN for help. do you want to change the tires or tubes? tubes are about 7$ each
The can damage to your rim because unlike pneumatic tire,a solid one transfers all shocks to a localized part of the rim wheres a pneumatic tire more or less distributes its load over the rims entire length more or less,thats why rims can be made so light.
Pneumatic tires offer better progressive spring characteristics (eg less rollan resistance and more comfort)
I havent ridden the tannus brand but I did ride a similairly closed-cell foam solid tire,it sucked shit.
I dunno about the weight,Tannus states that their system... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Opening with.. Any good resources for adjusting bb7s? I was descending from a mountain the other day and at one point, I found I was decelerating on the descent. Didn't know what to do about them so I just kind of worked the brake and stuff until shit stopped being shit but it's probably in need of tuning.
My front wheel suffered from a serious amount of rust, seizing the QR skewer in the hub. Took a great amount of force and time to get it out. Is it possible to just replace the skewer or do I have to service the hubs too?
>>999284 >good resources for adjusting bb7s OP what do you want to know? BB7s are possibly the easiest disc caliper to adjust: 1. verify the rotor is true and bolted securely to the hub, and that the hub is fully located in the dropouts 2. align the caliper with the rotor so that there's no rubbing - and try to get the fixed brake pad as close as possible to the rotor 3. use the adjusting knobs on each side of the BB7 to fine tune pad position so that they both sit as possible to...
