ITT good manners/courtesy/politeness in metropolitan train

Where I live people tend to block doors in order to get some seat, they also think the doors have a countdown timer and if they don't get on board on time, doors will kill them.

Don't block doors. Also try to not stand with your crotch facing a sitting person. Seems gross. Not sure I've witnessed it much.

Get ready to get off in advance. If you're in the car centre try to notify others you're leaving a stop ahead. Like look up, shuffle forward etc.

the move to sealed cartridge bearings was good for absolutely everyone.

Same goes for the move away from rim brakes.

Friction shifting is fine, but indexed has very tangible benefits. If you want non-disposable shifters, buy Campagnolo (end-user rebuildable) and a Jtek Shiftmate so you can run Shimano cogs/freehub body.

I've been considering buying a road bike just as a means for short trips to the grocery and general exercise. I would probably ride it here around town (Hawaii), and already have a route in mind. I would primarily ride in the early morning or evenings on my off days.

I'm just wondering what all I would need to go along with the bike, I know headlight/taillight and lock but what kind of cloths would I need, obviously I can't ride in jeans but from seeing other people riding I don't know if I would get into the whole spandex thing, also what about shoes...

If you're just doing low-effort rides like grocery runs, you can get by in normal clothing. Padded liner shorts are a good way to make jeans & trousers more comfortable without going full lycra mode.

That said, you will be a LOT more comfortable in clothing that is very light, breathable, and quick-drying. Avoid cotton.

Shoes don't matter much until you want to get into more "serious" riding. They can make a big impact in comfort and performance when you are pushing your limits, but for casual rides you will probably be comfortable in whatever you normally wear. Good socks are a bit more important. Again, avoid cotton.

pic rel is a 28mm, and peloton is now running 25mm as a standard, as oposed to 2000s trend of 23mm, and in the 90s it was 19mm and 20mm tires.

In many of the gimmick new trends in road bikes (im looking at you 10-12 speed casettes and discs), going bigger tires is a positive move. Personally I run 20mm on a road bike, and 30mm on my commute and the difference is offcourse huge (20mm sucks btw but im stuck with them for now).

Tires on road will probably go to 28mm as a standard soon. Question is will the standard tires in the peloton go to 30mm? 32 seem to be the...

They probably won't go over 28 mm. Above that you start running into Aero and weight issues with the tires.

I ride 25 mm tires on 25 mm wide rims. Makes for really easy wheelchanges when there's no need to touch the brakes at all when changing tires. I feel like 25 mm is around the ideal width when in normal roads. If you're riding in cobbles or shitty roads then 28 mm or even 30 mm is probably the better choice. Good quality 25 mm tires already feel smooth as fuck so there's not much need to go wider for comfort.

Hard to say what will get adopted and what won't. everyone's always eager to provide the next standard or tech to sell.

Having said that, as for now I've only seen 28s on endurance style, and 32 on gravel bikes like the diverge. I doubt they'll go over 28, especially on "le tour" type shit where everyone's riding super aero bikes.

32 definatly seems like a complete overkill for a road bike, but going 30 might be possible.

Hey guys, I'm looking to buy an entry level mountain bike under $450 and I've looked at the Specialized Hardrock, Giant ATX, Cannondale Catalyst 4, Trek 3500, and a few others. However, I read some bike forums and they suggested that Diamondback was a better buy since most of the components are the same brand (sram/shimano) and the frames are probably built in the same place.

I'm new to mountain biking so I'm hesitant to buy Diamondback mainly because they aren't sold at my local bike shops, although I've read that I'm basically paying...

How does /n/ feel about Bike Share programs?

I've tried the one in my city (Montreal, Quebec, Canada), and I've liked it. The system works fine and the city has enough bike paths for it to be not completely suicidal to try. But it has enough downside - the questionable maintenance of the bikes, the charges after 30/45 mins and the fact all the paths are along metro lines - that I don't think I'll get the season pass.

It costs $8 to rent a bike for 30 minutes. The stations are far apart and the bikes are clunky. The city has bought it but there is no free transfer between transit and bikeshare. Helmets are required by law and cost another $2 to rent. There is no electric assist for Seattle's steep hills to entice the casual rider. $10 for 1 bike ride is far too much.

That's a great thing to do. A high quality old rigid mtb makes an excellent commuter. You have a lot of options. The most important stuff to do is servicing it.

Post some pictures of it.

If the wheels have life left in them, don't change them, just service them. Get new slick tires, and either bolt on skewers, or locking skewers, like pitlock. That's cheap and easy to do. Alternately you can just lock your wheels when you lock your bike.

Thanks for the advice.
I'll post pictures tomorrow when I have the time.

What about the cranks? Part of the reason i want to convert is beacuse the SS I currently ride I'd like to have more pedal efficiency on top-speed long straight aways (trails) while still being able to gear down for stop/starts and the climbs on/off the trail. Plus this frame is way way cool.

Here's a pic of practically the same thing I have.

I'd buy it for that price.

You need to do a full overhaul for it, meaning opening and possibly replacing the major bearings, maybe a new rear casette, so expect some extra expenses and work above that. Even so, still reasonable.

And when I said rear casette, I meant that the freewheel may be so worn out it is skipping at heavy pedaling or something.

That thing most likely wont have a casette.

So you mean like, more than the cost of the bike, DIY cultist-kun

You forgot to mention that if you're not a MGTOW you probably don't have a BB tool, a cassette tool, a chain breaker, a collection of cone wrenches, a pencil magnet, degreaser, shop rags, two different kinds of lubricants, and a shop stand

Oh and enough parts to replace the ones you broke learning how to fix the ones that needed replacement

Or, take it to a reputable bike shop and spend $150 on an overhaul

I'm proposing a constitutional ban on having more than 10 gears on your rear cog. Nobody NEEDS more than 10 gears.

I found an 80s 10speed department store bike. Has a womeme frame and I was thinking of converting it to a fixie. Maybe give it a new paint job. I have no need for this bike and when I found it there was no chain on it. So... Should I? I never really see women's frames on converted fixies.

Go for it, this project caught your interest so do it. Post back the progress and then finished fixie - it might be really good or really bad but until its done we will never know.

Sure, whatever. Step-through frame fixie conversions are nothing extraordinary. I guess you don't see too many of them because there's hardly any step-through frames with decent tubing out there.

Tiagra is gud
Claris is bad
New Sora is gud
Old Sora is bad

There's nothing wrong with the newest tiagra. Looks and works just as good as older 105.

I've got Sora front and rear derailleur, with friction St shifters, and they work just as well as I'd expect anything to work. I won't have them on this bike forever, I'm definitely upgrading to 105 or something else before the end of the Summer, but I have had 0 problems with the mechs themselves, they're just as smooth and reliable as I'd expect them to be, and they work pretty well with friction shifters.
Though, my roommate has some meh-tier "Gravity" cx bike with Sora sti levers, and they just feel kinda janky or cheap to me, compared...
