After a motorist didn't give way to me I got into a conversation with him which ended up with a "Fuck off, nigger" from me.

I shocked myself that I could even say that to a person in real life.

Thanks 4chan, you have brain washed me.

hey /n/, this winter break my friend and I will be biking around Los Angeles. I'm from Seattle and he's from Minneapolis so we're not familiar with the area. We have three weeks. We're planning on hanging around Angeles National Park as well as Joshua Tree park. We will be there mid-December thru the beginning of January. Any advice? Suggestions regarding where to bike? Places or roads to avoid? Thanks :)

Hey /n/, im looking into getting a road bike for transport around uni (and the city), and exercise.

Would a single speed be the best for me? If so, why? Would this benefit transportation and/or exercise?

And where could i purchase whatever type of bike i settle on that wont break my bank? (My budget is about $400-$500)

>Would a single speed be the best for me? If so, why? Would this benefit transportation and/or exercise?

For most riders it is personal preference. You don't need gears for small/medium hills. For a road bike, you probably won't be off roading that much, so you won't need gears. Generally I stick to the 3rd ring for flat/mild hills, 2nd ring for moderate hills, and 1st ring for very steep or off-road hills. I can do basic off roading on a single speed cruiser bike...

Not looming for a crazy intense workout as of now. The exercise i would plan to get with it would be like a 4-5 hour ride.

Ive been doing some research and found this:

What are your thoughts?
If you're just getting started in road cycling, I would personally recommend getting a bike with multiple gears. There's no reason you couldn't be very happy with a singlespeed for longer rides, if you lived somewhere flat, or as if the other anon said, that was your personal preference - but if you've never ridden a road bike before, having variable gears will really help you as you start building fitness and getting used to a new kind of riding.

With a $4-500 budget, I'd be looking...

>I also believe that one of the first rules of good urban design is that we must treat cars as a shameful disease to be hidden from the public view so that urban design can be centered on human beings. The presence of too many cars is deleterious to any urban environment, so having cars right in your face, parked on the curb, is the exact opposite of what we should aim for. Hide the cars away so that you can focus the environment on people, not vehicles.

If you have a bike but not a car, you are either a hipster who works at an organic food co-op or a NEET. I have a bike and a car and wouldn't want to go without either. Both do things that the other can't.
The idea is that we should try to shift toward cities and urban environments where one could very reasonably live with just a bike and no car, instead of resigning ourselves to being dependent on cars because "that's just how it is."

So I'm pretty new to cycling, got a Ghost road bike at REI about 3 months ago and have put around 500 miles on it since then on rides of 15-25 miles each. I've been wearing the same clothes I wear running, just normal fitting athletic clothes - shorts, short-sleeve shirt, plus a track jacket if it's cold. No tight spandex or anything like I see a lot of cyclists wear. Why should I really wear that stuff? It's more aero sure but is that just minor min-max type stuff or does it really make a noticeable difference?
55 replies and 5 images submitted. Click here to view.
It's less about aero and more about comfort, particularly the shorts.
The padding in cycling shorts is important for comfort if you're going to be spending more than 2-3 hours in the saddle at a time.

Cycling jerseys have pockets that you can stash food in; also important for multi-hour rides.

Neither matter if you're topping out at 25 mile rides.
Mandatory if rainy. Otherwise you can always ride comfortably without them.

get a fucking dutch bike.
Looks like exactly the same thing. Okay then let's rephrase the question to what are the pros and cons of such a design
The big disadvantage of a step thru is lower frame stiffness. Many of them are heavier, too. Losing the double triangle causes a lot of compromises in the structure of the bike. That's why mixtes are great. They retain the double triangle, so you get most of the advantages of a step thru but with a stiffer and lighter frame.

It's hard to find a new drop-bar mixte in the US these days (most are flat bar grip shift with IGHs), but there are lots of old Peugeot and Shogun mixtes still around. New, you can build up a Soma Buena Vista if you have a decent budget....

On my country if you leave city/village roads, you must wear a helmet, and if you are 16 or under 16, you must wear a helmet always.

This 'basket' can't hold small items without secondary containment, while also being able to carry less wide things than a normal front flat 'rack'.

So some bastard stole my bike today. I'm a little mad right now.

But I'm just wondering if its even worth reporting to the police. There were no cameras at the location it was stolen from so the chance of catching the guy or getting it back seems minuscule. I'm in the UK if that makes any difference to anything.

Has anyone here managed to get a stolen bike back? Have the police ever been any help whatsoever?

Where did you leave it and how long?
I have, but only because I lived in a small town and was lucky. You'll probably never find your bike, mate.

And nope, unless it's a very flashy bike (with a weird frame) or you put a gps or some shit like that inside the frame, they won't help, especially in a big city where bike thieves are commons.
Might be a good idea to file a police report if you're planning on getting a new bike paid for by your insurance.

Tram lines don't usually use the railway-like traffic control technology, that's one of the main factors that make tram a tram. That means there is no real thing like trains per hour at tram line. There are only theoretical numbers that say how much trams can still go thru a line without making it congested.

What does this mean? Thousan Per Hour? As in thousands of pax per hour?

You have to take into account how the maximum occupation of rail vehicles is calculated. Standard calculation is four people per square meters. Many specifications will calculate way more than that, which is a Tokyo-style crush load. Picture four people on one square meter, you're already breathing down the other persons neck.
