Uh, NO, that's wrong, just like automobile accident statistics, the chance of getting in an accident goes up over time, but you're not guaranteed of getting killed. Your bicycle 'accident' may be as simple falling off the bike and skinning a knee. Nice way to spread FUD though, asshole.

How much difference does a "Shadow" Rd make and should I spring extra dough to get it. First MTB. Plan to explore the local trail scene
>>
>>966247
Given that it's your first MTB I wouldn't worry about the derailer, having a clutch -type derailer helps deal with chain slack but it's not necessary unless you're a very aggressive rider (or when running a 1x drivetrain).

Do bike commuters usually just have easy, flat rides on city streets? Or are hills involved?

I was thinking about this in terms of like, if you bike to work and have a tough ride with hills or whatever, doesn't that add a lot of time to your commutes? Don't you get tired/sweaty before even getting into work, then having to start the day tired?

Or working all day then having to struggle up a hill back home before even eating dinner?

There are hills in my commute. Believe it or not, 10 miles & ~45 minutes after I leave home in the morning I'm NOT entirely sapped of all my energy in any given day.

If I took a car to work I'd probably have to ride/run before leaving, just to set myself off on the right foot...

I see there are a lot of cyclists here so perhaps some of you can help me understand. I ride a motorcycle in NYC and I noticed that I get more shit from cyclists than cars. The traffic here usually sucks so I end up lanesplitting and maneuvering often. I never give cyclists any shit when they're in the street cause they're allowed to be there and are easy enough to get around, but today, the traffic was really bad on this street with narrow lanes so I used the bike lane for a couple blocks, I pass several cyclists without issue. But while I'm waiting at a light...

I see much mention of hipsters in relation to certain elements of bike culture. Not just on here but in other parts of the internet and meat space as well.
What separates dirtbag sports aficionados / mechanics / delivery riders from hipsters?
They look really similar to me and I would like to be able to better differentiate between the groups.

Simple quiz to tell if someone is a hipster or not:

Do you wear a cycling cap with no helmet?

Yes? - You are a hipster
No? - You are not a hipster

Look, kid. I don't know who you are or what kind of riding you do, but I'm not one to back away from a challenge -- or from danger. You see those professional freeriders hucking backies off 30 foot cliffs on gravity rigs? Yeah, I'm one of those guys. Or the guys riding 100kph in a peloton only centimeters away from other riders, where the slightest mishap would send them flying onto the pavement -- or worse, off the cliff that the road is running alongside? Yeah, I'm one of those guys too. I'm a 3-time downhill world champion and a 5-time Tour De France...

My local bike shop said I didn't need a valve cap for my presta valve wheels. This is my first time using presta.

Do you not need a cap over them?

Your LBS is right, OP:

The caps on a Presta valve are supplied to keep the tube from being punctured by the tip of the valve when rolled up tightly for shipping/sale. Unlike Schrader valves, which need an external dust cap, there's no need or benefit to using the plastic cap after installing a Presta valve on a wheel.
