Eh, I had some amateur error, when trying to fixate my disc brakes. I openend the oil Torx screw of the Shimano brake, and then pulled the brake. Oil flew out like when you have shits diarrhea.
Anyways, now I lost a bit of oil in my rear brake system, and I notice it, I can pull the lever all the way back and it barely breaks. I found no clear results about what to use, because people keep on arguing anyways.
Funny enough my bike doesn't use the original mineral oil, it's yellowish and not red. The distributor who put my bike together also thought... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>995675 You don't have to use genuine Shimano fluids. However you have to use the same type of fluid as your brake system requires. Mineral oil and DOT fluids can't be mixed and can't be used in brake systems meant for the other type of fluid. The systems use different type of rubber in their seals and if you use incorrect fluids the seals WILL fail at some point. It won't be instantaneous and it might not even be spectacular when they fail. It might take months for it to happen but it will happen at some... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey frie/n/ds, I've got a Croix de Fer and a alu for racing, but I'm going to use my Cycle2Work scheme to get a Bianchi Pista for cutting about town and, in Winter, riding velo. Is this a dope or dopey idea?
I took the technician's test for the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), was the hardest test I've ever took and even though I studied non-stop all week I got only a 40%. The test I took is specifically for communications. The fortunate part though was every other person in the class failed too, only 9 other people taking it. Some of these people looked like electronics engineers or managers in their 50's and 60's but still had a shit fit. I swear though, when it comes to the BART it's like the Harvard of the electrical technician's world.

had a woman do a left turn into a parking lot right in front of me when I run steady 460 lumens + flashing 280 lumen lights
went to confront her and shes an old ass lady in her 70's and said "I'm sorry I didn't know you were there" with her fucking old lady voice. Felt guilty talking to her but people that old and unaware should really stop driving.
Is the dimension printed on the bike rim tape the same that is needed for tires and tubes? Trying to fix up an old road bike ant the old tires were so dry they were unreadable. Someone in-between put 27 1/4 inch tires on it
>>995009 Cool, that helps because a ton of shops around me have various 26 tires but not specifically 1 3/8
So do you think that this rim tape dimension is for the tire diameter as well? as far as I can tell its the original rim tape. I measured as best as I could with a tape ruler, but without taking spokes off and the cassette/ free wheel off (which I don't have the tools to do) the measurement won't come out that accurate
>>994678 >Stupid millenials that don't know anything about the real history or operations of railroading in America. >Supporting commie pinko shit where the state owns the rail. I have never seen Amtrak NOT being given priority over everything.
USA railway problem is not called Amtrak and the future is not "giving more money to Amtrak so it can build its own lines". USA railway problem is called screwed nationalization. You see, those many European countries that have so many amazing state-owned railways actually own them because at one point in their history they basically nationalized private owned railway companies. In USA nothing like that really happened because America ain't no bloody commies, right.
How many times have you been ready to ride, only to be confronted with a flat tire? Well, our Alibi wants you to be pumped up to ride, not pumping up your tires. That's why it comes with tires that don't need any air at all. That's right, you can kiss your pump goodbye, and more importantly, you can say goodbye to ever having a flat tire again. We also designed an anti-rust chain for this bike that removes the need for regular dirty, grimy maintenance, plus a super comfortable Body Geometry saddle and grips that are 100% designed for women. The Alibi is always ready to ride, so consider it the perfect partner on your path to a fitter, better you.
>>993747 No. The shop I work at is gonna start selling these in the coming season. I feel ashamed to work at a place pushing garbage like this.
>Implying airless tires are a fresh new idea and solve a problem people have >Implying women are not capable of inflating their tires and cleaning/lubricating their chain [spoiler]They're just as bad as men[/spoiler]
I want a job in Aviation, but honestly have no clue what all there is that pays decently. I know Ramp Agents/baggage pay jack shit. But what are some Aviation jobs that you could get certifications for and make $50,000+/yr?
non-pilot jobs please, because I don't want to go $80k in debt and be poor for the following 5 years because of starting pay.
>>993688 Go to trade school/community college and apply for NDT certification level 1. Get an OSH certification as well while you're at it
Shit is still kinda expensive but for NDT level 1 training, it would only take about 8 months (tho it's still depends on which school you go to) and at most you only have to spend around 3k, minus the PPEs and other tools
Airline companies would employ NDT technicians to check fatigues, leakage, cracks and other things related to aircraft maintenance. Bonus you don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>993445 The way the sides of the top part of the rack stick out past the sides of the rack will probably be problematic, the panniers won't sit as closely as they should. You could probably make it work, but it wouldn't be ideal. You would be better off with something like pic related where the top of the rack sits flush with the sides of the rack.
If you want one of these, send an email to njersey AT hush DOT com. Specify whether you definitely, probably, or maybe want one. They will be full zip race fit. They will cost $80 per jersey. Shipping will be $10 in the United States, $20 in Canada, $30 in most other places, more if your country has import/export taxes or whatever.
>>993145 That includes the fee for the team storefront (which is a webstore set up by the company, so that the jerseys are shipped directly to the buyers rather than all being sent to the organizer, i.e. me).
>>993083 They go anywhere, where I am there are hundreds of miles of ATV trails that 2.3" tires can't handle. I am sick of dealing with cagers and I only bike where they can't go. Hopefully this spring I am headed to the California/Nevada/Utah desert to do some backcountry exploration.
yo /n/iggas, I've got an old Raleigh Delta that I bought from some guy off Kijiji. I'm going to throw some new pedals on it, already redid the brake pads and I'm in the process of replacing brake and shifter cables. Couple of questions:
1) - in the 5th cog and the 7th cog (lowest gear, sometimes the 6th as well) the chain slips off the chainring and it's almost like the teeth of the chainring just spin while the chain is just barely off the ring. I've got two front chainrings with no front derailleur - this seems to be stock. Is there a term for... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Rides in jeans and ratty clothing, gray beard and baseball cap, shitty unmaintained bike, jansport or some sort of canvas backpack, maybe a bell. Riding on the sidewalk with occasional jumps onto the road making life very frustrating for cagers
I bought into the 29er meme and have comically long chainstays.
but really? I can't into the hip thrust.
Instead I bought clipless pedals and 29er+ rims/tires so I can look slightly down my nose at full-susfags while being secretly ashamed.
Also, I've kinda chickened out as I enter middle age. One of my neighbors permanently crippled himself on what amounts to a loca bunny hill and I haven't done much singletrack since. He hasn't talked about it, but I'm pretty sure I know the exact spot he wrecked. It's a simple double-tabletop, but it's also just slightly off-camber and just a little bit longer than what you can clean without cranking.
Like.. the guy is UNLUCKY to be alive, and it was just some scrub segment. I've been out to real mountains since and I have more fun with uphill tech anyway. So fuck bunnyhopping. I'll work on powerstroking.
For just $2500 you can own a "Special"-ized bicycle running a 9/10-speed kludge drivetrain.
WHAT A BARGAIN
> The bike is now using a Shimano Tiagra 3x crankset (50-39-30t) and 10-speed cassette (11-36t) in lieu of the SRAM 2x crankset last year. The benefit of the triple crankset is that it adds more gear range overall (23-127″), including some lower climbing gears and an extra gear at the top. In order to fit the large-sized cassette on, Specialized used a well-known hack where you match the cable pull of a 9-speed rear derailleur... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
