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?
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.
>The Belgian paper La Dernière Heure (DH) said the five-time Tour de France winner is suspected of giving the commissioner of the Brussels-Midi police force and his wife two top-end bicycles made by his company in order to win a €15,000 ($16,700) contract to supply 46 cycles to officers in Anderlecht in 2006. >be eddy >give away two bikes worth $11,000 each >that's $22,000 combined >secure contract to sell 46 bicycles...

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.

>>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.
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."
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
