"bike friendly" != "friendly". When you do it more then they do, then you can tell them how to do it properly. Perhaps you should just rent a car: happy parking! > GTFO of the goddamn bike lane kanker!
ITT: I answer questions and give advice on bike fitting, I'll be around for a couple of hours today so lay it on me.
Fitting is a broscience-filled field so I'll do my very best to cut through some of the "tradition" of bike fitting, especially regarding saddle tilt, knee angle, torso angle and medial/lateral tibial position etc.
Vaguely related, but any recommendations for someone who gets knee discomfort (stiffness, twingy feelings - but no pain) when riding in cold weather? I hate riding with tights on, on a long ride I can feel the tights 'gripping' my kneecaps and it's just as bad as riding cold.
Need some help, I bought a Merida Big 7-20md a while back and the crankset is pic related. I took them off to clean them and saw the bottom bracket is Shimano and not Suntour. What do I need to do to do a single speed conversion? I can install parts fine but it's the compatibility I don't get. The crankset specifically is the SR XCC 42-34-24 CG. Can I just buy a new crankset w/ chainring or do i have to get a new bottom bracket aswell? If so what do you recommend.
Hey /n/ - I was hoping I could get some advice from you all on something.
I ride a decently entry to mid-level road bike - think late 2000s, half-carbon, Tiagra/105 level components. Bought it used from a friend for $250.
Today I'm riding to meet someone at their house, and I leave the bike on its side in the driveway. A few minutes later there's a loud crunching noise - a big utility truck, also coming to the same house - ran over my bike. The back wheel is clearly fucked, tacoed with spokes everywhere. The guy is pretty apologetic about it, say's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
God damn you faggot, this all could've been avoided if you didn't park in the sidewalk. But I digress don't fuck the guy for a little mistake in sure you can find a nice bike again for a neat price but at the same time you shouldn't just let him off the hook. Maybe you guys can compromise? I don't even know if this post will help I'm high asf love you op
you should have gotten the cops involved right from the get go because now its your word vs theirs and they might just say fuck you.
$1100 really isnt that much even to us blue collar guys. Don't go thinking just because someone is blue collar that they are poor, some of us are making $200k/year... then again he could only be making 30-40k.
anyone have any information about subway car keys? apparently on some lines you get to be locked in for the duration of your ride for your own protection.
my sister who through her own mistaken life choices finds herself commuting on such trains to the manhattan financial district daily, does not necessarily want to be imprisoned with the other commuters.
>>902837 did this resolution pass? http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20101214/manhattan/council-pushing-unlock-doors-between-subway-cars
i've been reading about it all day, my sources may not have caught up with reality but i think there are still cars that are locked. the side doors probably can be forced open, but not by my tiny sister.
when a motorist cuts me off, what should I use as a blunt object to break his brake light? I have a U lock and that does the trick, but Ive lost one before because it fell out of my hands. Would a wrench be a good substitute? Also handy to have a wrench on you, but that also raises the issue of having to pull a wrench out quickly, where the U lock I can get off in an instant
>>902554 Wellgo pedals are just cheap Shimano clones, generally the bearings don't last nearly as long and they weigh a bit more, but they do work well - as you'd expect because they really are part-for-part clones of Shimano clipless pedals with a few things nudged by a mm here or there to get around the few patents that haven't expired yet.
If you want a mountain bike for $500, buy used. A new mountain bike that price is going to be pure shit. pinkbike.com/buysell is a good place to buy. Possibly Craigslist too, but pinkbike is generally better for mountain bikes (unless you want a really old mountain bike without suspension). Post in >>>/n/bbg

In Spain you literally turn up to Madrid airport and get on the next flight to Barcelona for a reasonable price. Why can't we have this in UK-France?
Why can't one of these regional airports like greenford or the one by Maidenhead (soon to be on the tube) have an hourly continual departure to a counterpart ex-military/private run down airport for a cheap price? I'll tell you why. Joos.
