replace it with a bearing of the same size. If you can't replace it, for whatever reason, place it on the top of your headset.

You'll be fine. Some people even prefer to leave a 1-bearing gap in headsets intentionally. Also, if you replace one bearing, you should replace them all. Having bearings from different batches means a very slight difference in size (even if they're the same grade, brand, etc) and that's bad.

I live in a sprawl death zone where walking/biking/transit might as well be illegal and this is what most of the roads near me look like. Some of our arterials even have full acceleration/merge lanes that are actually longer/wider than the interstate highway that cuts through the city.

24 meters wide street in an area with buildings 2-3 levels high? Are you american or something? If you want some public space, just made a square, park or play ground.

Because this is one of problems in US transportation - huge as fuck streets making longer distances (affecting walkability and public transport), lowering tax income per maintained area (new asphalt, snow plowing, water pipes) and so on.
Read strongtowns blog to get idea what I am talking about.

Same and I'm insecure so I won't make friends with people that are not friendless like me.

>>963678

I have friends that ride bikes, but they're all intimidated by the idea of riding a little more than 100 miles in a day for some reason. It's not like these people are out of shape either. 100 miles exactly is pretty much their cutoff for some reason none of them has been able to articulate :/
>>
>>963687
The single friend I have won't go over 30 miles. Personally, I find rides longer than 6 or 7 hours tend to bore very badly. I'm sure others are similar.

I started riding my bike to work rather than driving. This is the commute I take on the way home. Google Maps says it should take 45 minutes, but it takes me about 30 minutes. I'm not sure if I'm doing a decent job based on the elevation change, but 4.5 miles x 30 minutes means I'm only going an average of 9 mph which is pretty slow.

The weird thing is that going TO work, I'm mainly coasting down the opposite of this path, and it takes between 15-20 minutes to do it. It seems like it should take more than twice as long pumping up hills vs. coasting...

Do you have traffic lights and stop signs on the way? That probably accounts for it.
>>
>>971974
Yeah but it's the same stop lights there and back. It just seems like going uphill for 5 miles with a few pretty steep hills (one is a 1 mile long 8% grade, and a few half mile long 6% grades) should take way longer than 15 extra minutes

Hey /n/ I am looking for a cheap bike computer. I just need a basic one, like speed, max/average speed, clock, distance, stopwatch, etc. I'm looking on Amazon but a lot of the cheap ones (like $20 or less which is my price range) are just Chinese crap.

You guys have any suggestions on decent cheap bike computers?

So today was bike to work day in my city (Denver). I had to ride because I discovered my vehicle had a flat. Holy fuck it was horrendous. Normally the main path in town (Cherry Creek path) is a gangbang of asshole riders, but it was 10 times worse and voluminous today. Riders were just being assholes to other riders. What a shit idea. Why is this allowed?

remember last year when a sudden downpour and hail happened and cherry creek got flooded?

I had to commute to foco so I'm not doing a 100+ mile round trip and working 9 hours but some of the office types did.. it was kinda nice seeing a mostly empty parking lot and so many bikes their racks couldnt fit them all. They lined up about 20-30 bikes on the lawn, no locks or anything just a nice town where you can trust your shit to still be there at the end of the day.

does anyone here have to deal with air pollution?
bike riders especially.

i live in this city and theres pollution alerts all the time.. dont know if i should go out and train or not :( sucksssssss

I don't remember the source or anything like, but IIRC people sitting in cars take in much more air pollution than cyclists or pedestrians.

Any confirm?

Anyway, I don't really worry about it that much. I'd rather deal with air pollution than a sedentary lifestyle

They can. Europe has a massive freeway network on which the vast majority of freight is carried. I'm genuinely shocked sometimes that so many US transit and cycling advocates don't seem to realize how dense the freeway network in Europe is.
