I don't think enjoy is the right word, but it was better than driving. Took it from Oakland to Sacramento in 1hr 45min. Took me close to 4 hours driving last time because of traffic. It was reasonably comfortable, had free WiFi and had a full bar.

It's really easy senpai.
Just google, and I find these channels/websites to be especially useful:

Lots of to the point info:

GMBN is, I think, more reliable than GCN on the tech/maintenance side of things:

For those of you that use GoPros/action cams, where do you position your camera?

I find putting the camera at the top makes it way too tall to catch anything, and putting it off to the side (near the ears) cuts off the whole left/right side of the video

I tried putting it at a downwards angle but the visor cut off 50% of the video. (see: shitty video to the left)

Any mounting tips? Where do you guys like to put yours? I was thinking about maybe a handlebar mount but I think the vibrations from the bike would kill the camera

If you want to record your ride, on top of or in the front of the crown of the helmet is great.
If you want to also record whatever your hands and stuff are doing (which isn't always as appealing to others as it is for yourself), use a chest-mount harness.

A sprocket fell off my rear wheel ... like a rivet came out?

How do I fix this?

That's a rear derailleur pulley. It also appears half of your rear derailleur is missing. Get a new one.
And please, next time use the bike questions general.
>>
>dat valve stem angle

Yep, missing bushing and end caps in addition to the bolt. You'll definitely need a replacement derailleur if the other half of the cage is gone. Might be able to get one used from a shop, local FB group or bike coop.

Before you fix, check that you have an actual bike and not some walmart piece of crap.

Is that your own opinion, or are you looking for someone to convince you that they're good?

As someone that owns one I think they can be rather good, very fun and they can make it possible to ride stuff that would otherwise be very difficult if possible at all. I wouldn't say they completely replace unassisted bikes, the weight can be a hindrance especially when the battery runs out or they're just low powered. The prices on most pre-builts are also prohibitively high and for the same price you...

I'm all for e-bikes if they encourage more people to commute and ride around towns, and e-MTBs are fine on trails that are already open to dirtbike motorcycles or ATVs, but e-MTBs on actual MTB trails are a terrible idea. I don't care whether it's gasoline powered or battery powered: motorized vehicles don't belong on mountain bike trails.

Anyone who knows about the history of bicycle racing knows UCI equipment regulations were originally intended to ban a bike they really felt had an unfair advantage.
