>>969388 >I lost 1 ball bearing like pic related(not mine) from my headset, is it absouloutley necessary to find it or can i just leave it? 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. >also if i do leave it... Comment too long.

Found this neat interactive street designer; http://streetmix.net/ Show me your ideal urban street setup /n/, or if there is a section along your commute or regular riding that is poorly designed try recreating it here and let's discuss how it could be made better.
>>967176 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.
>>967176 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.
Also that building setback offered in website... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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 :/
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>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?
>Also, move back to where you came from you assholes.
When it was ride your bike to wotk day in Austin, i missed out on all the free stuff the city and LBS gave out. I really didn't even notice a difference from my normal commute. Kinda worthless day, but Alternative Transportation Day was kick ass.
>>971760 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.
>>971119 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.
