So I want to buy a bicycle 'cause workplace is 40 minutes away by foot, and because apparently I love cycling but I always were too much of a poorfag to afford one. I want a GOOD one, so I can fuck around every day with it, and also go to work.
tl;dr is pic related a good bike? It's that 'unstealable one' that was crowdfunded. That thing is like 450$ as far as I know. Can I get a better one for that kind of money?

Way to gimmicky. Get something more normal

i think the only way we get ustealable bikes is if the government starts making a line of all proprietary parts that no bike pawn would want anything to do with that can only be bought and traded in through the govt and if it gets stolen they supply you a new one and you have to be registered to ride them.

Let's say you're going from point A to point B, the terrain are 50% flats and 50% moderate hills (500m max). You will be riding on the road all the time. Sun is shining, no shade in sight and the temperature is around 25°C. You should maintain average speed of at least 30km/h, and are allowed to take 15 minute break every two hours. The catch is, it's just you and your bike. No water and no snacks. You can prepare however you want before the ride, but you can't take anything with you. You can drink/eat only after ariving to the point B.

What's...

No snacks for a two hour ride is fine, just make sure to have had a good breakfast and something before leaving.

No drink? I don't particularly feel like getting a dehydration headache. MAYBE 45 minutes. Probably more like half an hour.
>>
One hour and glucose will drop to zero
>>
>>963382
Absolutely sure? Maybe just something like 30 km on road bike. What's the point of breaks if you're not allowed to drink or eat. 30 km/h is pretty fast and at 25° and under sun dehydration will come quick. And over two hours without snacks isn't cool either. I mean if you've had huge breakfast it's not easy to ride 30 km/h.

Soup /n/.

So I need to travel from NYC to Vancouver, Canada by a method other than plane.

I also need to smoke the whole way.

I've thought about renting a private railcar, renting a luxury RV and driver, but neither is very feasible.

I also looked at cruises but there's only one and it leaves in 2018.

Anyone have any recommendations?

You could walk 500 miles, then walk 500 more, but smoking the whole way means you'd probably fall down before you reach their door.

If there's a 30 km/h speed limit, you can get a ticket for going to fast even if you're running it.

Speed limit counts for everyone, but I don't think you'll get a ticket unless you're acting like a madman

Germany here, speed limits apply to motor vehicles only. I have tripped stationary speed cameras a few times on purpose, just because.

I got pulled over once for doing 30mph in a 20 when I was 12y/o. The cop took me home and wanted to give my parents a ticket for me speeding, but they called his station and his boss told him to "Lighten up, Francis."

Got the IGH swap done. Ended up adding about 700g (11.9kg now) which is a bit more than I expected but still not a huge amount, the benefits more than make up for it.

Need to replace one spoke and paint the rim so it matches the front. May even replace the rim altogether when I can be bothered to lace up a new one but this'll do for now.

119 KB,
I want to get into road racing and have the opportunity to compete in a cat 5 race tomorrow. I have never competed in a bike race, I have never even done a group ride. I have a good road bike (Trek Madone 5.9 with Red and Force components). I just got it, only have 125km on it so far. The last ride was with my dad, a little slower than I'd go on my own, but my other ride (when I was lone) I averaged 31.0 km/h including stopping/starting. So while actually moving I was averaging about 32. It was only an 18.5km ride, but it was stormy and windy which slowed me down, plus...

OP here, also going to add that the race distance is pretty short by my standards. I haven't done a ride that long on my Madone yet, but I've done much longer rides on my steel bikes (longest being over 300km). So the distance doesn't scare me, I just want to know if I'm fast enough.
