Hello /n/ NYC transportation on subway is currently $2.75 as of 2016 Until 2017 $3.00 this is rigged because they spend so much money on unnecessary new station ,new cars, and outdated system timeline and train station that smell and very dirty infested with homeless people in almost every station What is your opinion on MTA?
It's still cheaper by far than BART. Sure it smells, but MTA is superior in terms of city coverage and is cheaper(the big one.) Also, as far as I've been told, MTA never stops running. Even at like 2 in the morning? This seems impossible and awesome to me.
It's used as a piggybank by upstate scum, as a make-work program for blue collar union scum, and it desperately needs to be overhauled. Make upstate scum give the money they stole back to where they stole it from, and stop rewarding union goons with massive amounts of unnecessary, voluntary overtime in their last few years on the job to milk the pension system so they can buy another vacation home in the poconos
Anyone else watching this series? >Historians Ruth Goodman, Alex Langlands and Peter Ginn explore how the introduction of steam railways in the early 19th century changed Britain. Episode 1 is mostly about slate and coal with a big focus on the Ffestiniog Railway.
Riding in the road is probably safer. Cagers don't really understand right of way at the best of times - when you throw a bike lane into the mix they just get confused, which makes them unpredictable, which can lead to dangerous situations.
If you ride in the road, they'll just treat you like a vehicle. They know more or less how to react to other vehicles. They do not know how to react to some ambiguous half-vehicle, half-pedestrian.
I would generally route to avoid a road like the one pictured in the OP.
>make me jealous Melbourne commuter train network to and through suburbia from city centre terminal, lines are 30-50km high frequency every few minutes morning and evening peaks 20-30 minutes off peak :\
Hey /fit/, /lit/ here. I recently had the bicycle that I ride to work with stolen; now I'm looking for a new one. Are there any cyclist here to let me know if this is a bad deal or not? Thanks, faggots. baltimore dot craigslist dot org slash bik slash 5691187165.html
Do you guys have any friends who are fat ask you if the reason why you are skinny is because you ride your bicycle?
I have had several fatties ask me and I've told them that cycling has nothing to do with it, I used to be a former fatty but I lost all of the weight via counting calories - sure, cycling helps keep the weight off by burning some calories but when you're fat cycling sucks compared to being thin.
So, I know you'll probably think I'm retarded or something, but this morning my bike felt very differently. Pedalling felt really stiff and bumpy, hard to describe. I looked at the chain and noticed that it has become very rusty (the last few days were sort of rainy).
Pic related. It's an old road bike, probably as old as I am, but I like it very much. So what I'm really asking is: How bad/urgent does this look? Do I need to buy a completely new chain or can I do something with the old one? What about the gear? I'd just do it myself as good as... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Inevitable if you ride consecutive days in the rain, not a huge deal. Lube it, ride, lube again. Do not attempt to scrape it clean or degrease with a chain cleaner.
It might need to be replaced, there's no way to tell with those pictures. What determines chainwear isnt rust, but how much the chain has stretched. You need a chain wear checker to see if it's time to replace, a simple one pictured to the left.
>>989317 as dumb as it sounds i've always set both little dials to L it doesnt make much sense to me two dials right side goes from H to L top to bottom makes sense left one goes from L to H top to bottom I don't get it
never got it as a kid wish i could just convert it to a fixie
Regardless, what's to understand? One changes the gears from large to small in the front, and the other in the back? You might want to downshift coming up a hill so it's easier to turn the pedal; because while you're getting less power out of that downshift, you're keeping the momentum of the pedal, which can be more important at this point. (Rather than keep that higher power output in a higher gear, but be unable to complete a pedal.)
You should be able... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

+ Complete 105 11-SPD (save for the Tiagra hubs) + It's blue + It's $925 / 825€
- Heavy as fuck rims (Remerx Taurus 550 g) and tires (Nitro 2 360 g) - Frame quality???
I've been looking at other bikes from more reputable companies (Specialized, Canyon, Radon, Trek, Merida, CUBE, etc.) in this price range but they usually come equipped with Claris, Sora, rarely Tiagra and come with off-brand brakes. Yes, the CTM is just a rebranded Taiwanese alloy frame, but it looks nice, has a tapered fork, threaded BB and modern geo. I can save 300 g on the tires right away and the wheels I can change next year or something if I so desire. What do /n/omads think? Is this a good deal?
Sup /n/erds. A woman is having me tune up this Yo Eddy, make some adjustments and stuff for her (Haven't done it yet, hence the flat tires). I know more about road bikes, and not much about mountain, but what little searching I did says that these were pretty sought after bikes. She got it in Montana, and knows its a great bike, but I didn't hear much more about it. Curious if you guys know more.
>>991629 I used to work with her, she knows where I live, I can't steal it. Nor would I. It's way too damn small for me, nor am I a monkey who would rip someone off. I like bikes, and I'm doing a favor.
>>991379 You don't need cycling shorts, that's retarded. You need "compression shorts" which are sold at any decent sporting goods store (or walmart). These wick moisture, keep things from chafing, and have no padding.
American bus, sturdy, steel paneling along the side for longevity and chrome down to the last detail even the windscreen whipers. Lasts decades, projects safety and strength for anyone considering riding, while its forward-skewed windows represent speed and awesomeness. Windows can be fully opened because American passangers are free and can feel the breeze of freedom through their hair at any point during their ride. Engine grunts with strength as it powers past.
European bus, made out of plastic, pink all over to prepare inmates for sissification en route to their tolerance camps. Curvy and effiminate design, windows can barely be opened for just enough air to breath. Runs on the butt-queefs of vegans. Engine sounds like the pathetic disappointed wheeze of pre-ejaculation.
>>991011 I've been using a kick scooter very similar to the one in your pic for almost two years now. I'll quickly list it's pros and cons for you. Pros: >cheap >fast and easy downhill >can transport beer crates on foot >can be packed and carried >can be taken onto buses, trains etc. Cons: >not as fast as a bike Comment too long.

>>990906 >Designs exactly as the original ones but only cost 636$ >Considering the price, will you buy one? How reliable will be these? There are decent chink frames. However they will cost you much more than that. And they won't have your much desired branding on them. These are made from shitty moulds that somewhat resemble the original using shitty materials as cheaply as possible. The end result is a shitty flexy frame that you don't want to trust your life on. If you want a fancy frame with a name everyone will know then buy the real thing and stop being a poorfag. If you're stuck in poorfaggotry and can't afford a nice name brand frame get a nice, but still relatively cheap chink frame from a reputable chink manufacturer. If you still can't afford that get a used frame. It won't have warranty but you can get great frames for pretty cheap if you find the right deal.
I need a bike to get from A to B, sometimes short distances, sometimes long, maybe sometimes I'd like to ride with my friends. Definitely don't want a fixed gear. My friend had a $200 fixed gear/single speed and I really enjoyed the single speed. Another time I tried a bike with gears, but didn't switch often. Single speeds look nicer and I'd assume are easier to maintain because of simplicity. I'm looking to spend around $200, and there are options on citygrounds for this price range, but people are telling me to spend an extra $100. Thoughts? Currently... Comment too long.

Im in a dilemma, I want to buy my first good bike as i currently have a shit bike. There is a used bike store that i go to and i wanted to trade my shitbike. they had 2 high end bikes im interested in, A focus Variado tiagra which is 1300 regular for $850 CAD and a Cannondale caadX disc ultegra which is 2200 CAD regular for $1100, However it is a cyclocross bike fitted with road tiers, will it handle weirdly? To make the situation even more fucked up, im a student without a job, and i have 4000 in my bank account, i also get student funding from the government. What should i... Comment too long.
