Why don't rims with few spokes have more holes drilled into the rim bed? Wheels are fine with 36+ holes there, it's an obvious way to lose more weight without impacting performance

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here

Any extra holes, especially ones without spokes attached to them will make the rim more flexy.
>>
not uncommon on fat bikes, but they have a lot more material to prevent flex.

If there was a decent way of getting the nipples in without drilling the bed holes I'm pretty sure they would gladly avoid drilling entirely.

For example mavic threaded inserts.

A lot of you guys in /n have probably been in or watched a bike or running race and in doing so, witnessed or been the last person only to revive the pity clap and the horrible feeling that comes with it. So I ask, why is there always an uproar for the slowest runner, even if they don't try? Is it just part of an 'everybody is a winner' society?

As a grease monkey mechanic Ive seen too many people saying "my bike got stolen but I locked it up with a fairly beefy chain lock"

I suppose the bike thiefs just carry heavy-ass bolt cutters here or the thinner shackles of a chain lock are too easy to cut.

Do mind that I never keep my bike locked in a foreign place for more than 15 minutes so my choice of lock isn't that important I suppose.

Is it really a con if it can be so easily mitigated? You can pick up incredibly cheap bikes that are still much faster than walking and not such a big deal if they get stolen, being so cheap they're less likely to be stolen, and a decent lock isn't expensive and makes the bike even less likely to be stolen.

1. Flats are much less expensive if you patch your tubes instead of replacing them.
2. Out of curiosity, were your flats pinch flats, or did you manage to puncture a brand new Gatorskin? If pinch flats, the problem may be that you're not checking tire pressure before you ride.
3. Personally I go hundreds of miles between flats, part of that comes from riding wider tires (lower surface pressure lowers the risk of punctures), but I also scan the pavement as I ride and stay out of gutters and know to avoid riding through...

That's your problem.

Get some real tires (like nice, folding panaracers with a protection strip or something) or go tubeless. Preferably, tubeless. It's a world of difference.

Not surprisingly, shitball tires mean you'll have shitball amounts of flats.

Any bike can take the odd trail. Just don't try taking your folding bike to proper downhill terrain.

Do you want to ride the odd trail here and there while mostly riding on roads? If so then buy whatever you want and ride it normally. Put on some tires that don't have massive knobbies so you don't suffer massive rolling resistance penalties while riding on roads. Ride them normally at relatively high pressure. You can drop the pressure if you get to longer trails you want to ride. You don't...

Rigid mtb, buy one on craigslist for 50 bucks. Thumb shifters are easy as fuck to use, positioned conveniently for beginners, and are bombproof in friction mode. Buy 1.5-2 inch slick tires for comfort and stability.

How it came. I just assembled it on the street because I had it shipped somewhere that I don't actually live.

Then took it into a bike shop to finish a few things (no star driver for the front rotor) and pump the tires.
