What are bicycles? Genuinely. In my country we call cyclist turners because they turn the pedal over and over to make them move in more.

Anyway I have a question...if I have stem that is negative what does it mean. I biught a bicycle from craigslist and it says negative stem. Hopefully it means fast, I just want be like lance armstreng when he goes quickly on the turner.

>for your city traffic
bike infrastructure costs a lot of money, and barely reduces traffic. Whenever a city sees a rise in bikes it also sees a decrease in pedestrians. Extremely few people will stop driving their car to start riding a bike, however it's a proven fact that improving public transit, preferrably coupled to reduced road space, DOES help reduce traffic, and people WILL stop driving cars to use public transit. If you wear a suit and tie and it's 90 degrees outside...

That's the felt.

I'm in no way a pro rider or anything, my bike's a trek 2300 with some carbon tubes in there. It's pretty old I got it second hand for like 300 bucks and used it for a few years. There's the option of upgrading it but I'd have to change my chain-ring (it's skipping) and probably the drive-train bearings.

The reason I've been wanting to change it is that it generally feels stiffer, feels like it has built up some resistance since I've bought it, maybe it's cause I'm not maintaining it properly. Here's a pic of current bike.

What are the organizational challenges in founding a new commuter passenger railroad in the US?

By this I mean other than finding the right route to establish. Everything else is fair game, from hammering out track leases and buying rights of way, rights to use stations, dealing with local governments, state and federal EPA problems, labor issues, equipment issues, and other problems your average railfan or attorney would not think of.

No? There are lots of regional passenger rail services that aren't affiliated with Amtrak.

Let's assume Amtrak isn't a problem. This question is about regional passenger service, such as for commuters.

What I'm curious about is what the organizational nuts and bolts are with respect to things like how the railroads are incorporated, how their insurance coverage works and overlaps, regulatory issues involved in establishing passenger service, dealing with other railroads (i.e., rail leases and how they share lines in an efficient and safe way).

>After he had crunched the data, the numbers revealed an interesting set of patterns. The farther he rode from the
edge of the road, the less space cars gave him. When he wore a helmet, vehicles tended to pass closer than when
he did not wear a helmet. Passing drivers may have read the helmet as a sign that there was less risk for the
cyclist if they hit him. Or perhaps the helmet dehumanized the rider. Or—and more likely, according to Walker
—drivers read the helmet as a symbol of a more capable and predictable cyclist, one less likely to veer into their
path. In either case, the helmet changed the behavior of passing drivers.

If an oncoming car is turning left I absolutely will not signal if I am turning right down the same road. Drivers seem to see the signal and think "bike slow I can make my turn in time". Its just an invitation to get cut off.

I've also noticed if there is a right turning car on a road I'm turning right onto, 95% of the time if I give them a courtesy signal to let them know they can pull out, they won't.

One thing I think would be great for getting drivers to pass safely are those...

Just get a Garmin 520. Set up your Garmin connect profile, and link your Strava account to it. Then download the Garmin Connect app and Strava app on your smartphone and link the Garmin 520 by Bluetooth to your phone with the Garmin connect app running in the background. After you're done your ride, your Garmin 520 can save and auto upload your ride to Garmin connect & Strava through your phone. If you get anything below the Garmin 510, 520, 810, 820, 1000, you'll have to manually plug your cycling computer into a computer to manually upload.

Google says USD115 is about CAD150. If you want to get closer to your 250 budget, get the 530e, which has a much larger screen.

Main benefit to these computers is that they have auto upload to strava via wifi, and 35 hour battery life.

If you are heavy (cyldesdale) you might want to look for a bike with V-brakes or disc brakes.

This Fuji Touring is $770 with V-brakes. Widely regarded as the best deal for a touring bike

I would spend $15 to get kool stop brake pads for it

then spend $150 to get a Selle Anatomica saddle to be super comfy (if you are under 250 lbs)

Cost is irrelevant, the quality is what matters.

A BSO is of such low quality that it isn't fit for purpose, that is it will break in some way after an unreasonable length of time or just be downright dangerous to ride. Performance could also be a factor, whilst a BSO may have a drivetrain that rolls and changes gear, a suspension fork that moves, or brakes that eventualyl stop the bike it may do so very poorly.

I have a steel frame with a more than slightly bent rear triangle
looked it up online already and got the tools, only thing that's holding me back from setting it straight right now is no access to a vise for the time being since a repair stand won't do it for this job

don't you have a workbench or is it just the vice that you're missing? there's movable vices for sale but those typically aren't as strong

How do I measure the width of my rim? Also how do I know what tyre width will my rims fit?

As much red as possible.

Everyone knows that red will just make you overheat quicker. Green is the way to go.

Orange for speed and teal to dissipate heat

Hey /n/ here you go with a quick tip I discovered after I crashed my bike into a skateboarder and my forks got messed up...

As long as your forks are made out of steel (mine are made out of "Chromoly" which is a fancy word for "steel") you can just bend it back no problem.

if this ever happens to you, brace your bike against two hard things and then use a spreader to push the fork back into place as shown in the picture.

Hope this can help you some day. :-)

Nice improvisation OP. FYI there's even a tool that makes doing this kind of rebending even easier to accomplish.

This is objectively the best way to straighten a fork. Too bad alot of you wont have a cager to help.

Why do you have a flatbar road bike if you already own a proper road bike? Genuine curiosity.

dropper post needs to go somewhere else.

They're both proper road bikes, Anon. ;_;

But the flatbar one has full fenders and is equipped for wet weather riding. The other isn't, and has HED hubs that aren't really water proof.
Plus the flatbar bike is great for just cruising around the city and taking in the sights with a more relaxed riding position. Plus it's heavy so good for muscle building during the Winter.

Ultimately, though, it's the bike that made me fall in love with cycling and had it before I ""upgraded""...

Will there ever be a revival? Can they find more use than just as glorified billboards?

They also use them to film golf events, lol.

I think a solar powered airship might be cool when fuel prices get too high

I don't know why they aren't used more to capture overhead footage of sporting events, like F1, instead of using helecopters to be desu.

Well, right away they take up a metric fuckton of space for a tiny cargo load. The Hindenburg carried about 100 passengers and crew at max, while a 737 a tenth of its size can carry the same amount. They're also very slow, and helium is expensive as hell.
