Ask a guy that just had the only thing he owns get stolen outside walmart when I was buying groceries anything
RIP matilda... :(
Surr I had to get new tire tubes for you weekly and surr 3rd gear didnt work but you were the only thing I have and I loved you for taking me places so swiftly... now you're probably in some chop shop across state lines....
>The Effects of Mountain Biking on Wildlife and People -- Why Off-Road Bicycling Should be Prohibited (1997) tl;dr mountain bikes directly and indirectly kill animals, annoy hikers and generally destroy nature Extrapolate your opinions.
>>961002 >implying there's anything wrong with conservationism There isn't. I particularly agree with this point "Parks are supposed to be a refuge from the crush of humanity and the noise, danger, and artificiality of urban areas"
I've just noticed a lump under the skin, sort of halfway between my taint and the sit bone on the left. It doesn't exactly hurt unless I prod it real hard, and doesn't seem particularly tender or inflamed. I've noticed very rare shooting pains from that area, but that's about it.
Doctor seems to think it's some misc. lymph node swelling, but I'm wondering if it could be saddle related - too narrow a saddle for my wide-for-a-guy hips? I've always thought of saddle sores as chafing of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>960892 I have them, same as you I can feel little lumps. they hurt for like 5 minutes when I start riding, but the pain goes away and I don't notice it unless I go over ~150km. Just deal with it, not that big a deal
>>960892 Yeah I got them once when I did 4 races over 2 days, and I had just shaved the insides of my thighs, also I regretfully didn't wear ass padded bibs so my ass had both sores and was legit raw. After the two days it was really sore but if you like riding that much you'll keep doing it and it will go away really quickly, not that hard really, just don't let them bother you
Now, seriously, just take your time, it's easy, just eat something 2h before the ride, take some rests, drink something, wait a bit and keep pedaling. Find a comfortable speed for you and calculate the time it will take. I have never ride more than 110km, but I did it without resting and 3 bottles of water averaging 25-27km/h.
I'm seriously confused and have no clue what to buy. What is 'good'? What is just marketing? What is a reasonable price? It's not easy to pick a hub set when every manufacturer has like 3 different models on the market.
>>959033 >>959024 These days there's not a whole lot of difference between road hubs, unless you buy really cheap Chinese stuff you'll be getting good bearings/cartridge bearings, the advantage to the fancier hubs is marginal weight savings.
Shimano hubs are always a reasonable default choice.
I'm looking for a new wheel set for a single speed road bike build with steel frame. It shouldn't be too expensive and I personally dislike the huge hideous letters/logos they all seem to have these days. Recommendations appreciated.
>>956025 >coaster brake or freewheel wheels OP? freewheel
Yeah, I'm also thinking to build wheels, but maybe there's something nice I haven't laid eyes on yet. I'm more looking for a retro kind of look, since it's an old Italian steel frame with chrome fork, which reduces my options a lot in today's aesthetics.
>>956038 Thanks. It looks very good condition in pics. Will see in person.
I went to a local shop yesterday which had a Pinarello Montello in deep blue and even with fancy chromed lugs, kinda like pic related. I had never seen one in person until that point. However, it was very rusted on the lugs, bottom bracket and had some rusty spots here and there. The guy still wanted 220 € for it and I didn't want to take chances since I'm just a studentfag and that's a lot of money for playing Russian roulette.
Though the most expensive of those "add-ons" will be the power meter. The handlebar mounted Powerpod is $300 and they go up from there depending whether you want one built into a wheel, single leg / both leg crank based. Most power meters are effectively tied to a single bike.
>>963202 It pairs with your cadence / speed sensors and has its own air pressure and accelerometers. So it can determine ground speed vs air speed, how much bike is rocking side to side, forward / back, rate of climbing. Then it does a bunch of calculations on that data to come up with a power number.
There are limitations, its meant for road use so going mountain biking with it probably wouldn't provide reliable data. It even has trouble with cobbled roads. Gravel roads might also throw it off. But you can move... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>963175 Who you've listed are all good cyclists (where is Majka??) but it doesn't change the fact that the: >Giro won by Nibali (ITA) >Tour of Cali won by Alaphilippe (FRA) >Paris-Nice won by Thomas (GBR) >Paris-Roubaix wony by Hayman (AUS)
the only somewhat renound UCI event that this year has been won by a Eastern European was the Tour of Flanders by Sagan, who heaps of people... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>963344 Like everyone else. They most likely don't train on the busy streets where they're more likely to be hit by a cage. Also if they're any good they're going to spend a lot of time on Mallorca, Canary Islands, or wherever their team happens to go for training camps.
The longest tunnel in the world has been opened today in Switzerland. It;s 57 kms long and connects Switzerland with Italy. Maximum speed for passenger trains will be 250 km/h and for cargo trains 160 km/h. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVabbyFO8tQ
