Hey guys I need some help finding a new bike helmet. The current one i have is extremely bulky and doesn't really fit all that well. Im looking for something light, low profile, and less than $50. I know that doesn't seem like a very good budget but its all i can afford. Thanks guys.

Not going to get much for under $50. They will most definitely be bulky and hot.

These are a little bit above your budget:

Giro Savant
Giro Atmos II

Shop around online and you can find them both for much less than the MSRP. Your choice of color might be limited though.

Try them on at a local shop before you buy online to make sure you're ordering the right size.

An anon in another thread suggested that cagers who get caught driving drunk or who hit someone due to carelessness (such as texting while driving) should have their driver's license permanently revoked for the rest of their life.
This is obviously a good idea and it's stupid as fuck that it's not already this way.
If we work together, perhaps we could put together a lobbying group and actually put this legislation into effect in the United States (since that's where the majority of /n/ users live).
What do you guys think? I think we can pull it...

If society actually cared about this problem, we would just subsidize taxis with booze taxes.
Its a good idea in theory, but it will never work unless we completely rethink licensing of vehicles and drivers.

As it is people get nailed for driving while disqualified, or driving without a license or insurance all the time. I wouldn't be surprised if a good portion of the hit and runs are people that fall into those categories.

What is needed are vehicles that will only move if the operator has a valid license and no alcohol in their system. The technology exists to implement such a system. It would be difficult enough to get it mandated for new cars,...

It won't happen, in too many places in the US driving a car has become a practical necessity for life. Take away a license permanently and you impose a major limitation on someone's ability to work, support families, and contribute to society, so when you factor in the externalities, taking away someone's license would be akin to sending them to jail for 5-10 years if not longer. There's no way on earth that qualifies as justice, particularly in the case of true accidents or situations where negligence isn't obvious.

What are /n/'s oppinions on aero bikes?
I just bought one a week ago, mainly because I got a really good deal on it, and I have to say, so far i am impressed. Not really any difference in the ride, compared to my last bike (canyon endurance) but theres definately a psychological difference.

for me the only type of road bike is worth to buy is Endurance one, you can ride comfy on it with all benefits of "Being a road bike" that you can customize for more preferred style of riding if you want to save 10 seconds on 100 mile run as example.

Aero look cool from the side, but thats where it ends for me, a scam worthy only for racers not people who use bikes to commute, travel, exercise etc.

The difference you're feeling probably comes from the different frame geometry. I mean, look at those TITE CLEARANCEZ, probably gives a very snappy ride
i partially agree with you, i dont nescesarily think its faster, but as mentioned, i got it really cheap, and i liked the way it looked and felt on the road.
- my previous bike was a canyon endurance AL 6.0, which was much more endurance minded. which was nice for long runs, but somewhat slower than my new one.

stand up or sit your taint on the nose of the saddle.

Get one of those minimalist saddles that have a cut all the way back and only support the sit bones
With mountain biking in particular its useful to build the muscle to ride standing up for long periods of time anyway. My main bike is actually a dirt jumper with a seat to low to actually be usable. I've done 20 mi+ on this bike.

Can I have some feedback on how I service my bike?

- I use a syringe to apply lube into each of the chain links before putting it on the bike.
- I use a clean silky paintbrush to apply lube onto the teeth of the cassette, so I don't paint the entire cassette, just brush over the teeth.
- RaceFace Narrow Wide 32t with a 9 speed cassette with no bash ring or chain guide.
- Using an Alivio RD. (Will upgrade to something 10 speed eventually).
- Tubeless on medium difficult terrain
- 9cm stem, I find it helps me keep my wheel forward when things get rough

putting any lube anywhere on your cassette is retarded, you're just making your cassette sticky so it can collect maximum dirt

Eh, it's alright. It sucks they cheapened out on the crankset, and I'm not so sure how well would Sora road brake levers work with mechanical brakes, never tried it though. Wheels are also nothing special but not awful either, I'd get them trued and the spokes re-tensioned as soon as they go out of true (they will)

It's a lot of bike for the money, imo.

I recently picked up an old Shwinn Mesa Runner for $60. Looks exactly like pic related but with a different seat and handles. It currently has non indexed thumb shifters and was looking to upgrade to more modern shifters. Its a 10 speed but modern 5 speed shifters are much more expensive than 7 speed ones. Is it possible to convert this to a 14 speed or should I just get new 10 speed shifters? Thanks guys.
6 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
You can get 7 speed shifters and adjust the derailleur's limit screws to use them with 5 speeds.
Will this work with the different spacing between the gears. If a 7 speed quick thumb shifter is indexed for 7 speed gear spacing will it still work?

If a 7 speed cassette fits will the current derailleur work for all 7 gears?
5 and 7 speed freewheels have the same spacing. And yes, you can replace your 5 speed one with a 7 speed.

Find a nice gentle slope/hill that ends in a wide and empty space.

Walk to the top of the hill, get on your bike, ride it down without pedaling. Get used to how much more stable your bike feels at speed. That's the key. Most beginners assume slower = more stable. It's the opposite for bikes. The faster you go, the less wobbly it will feel.
