>>947639 Freeride and downhill bikes have been 1x for a while now, way before "1x" was marketed. Coming from that background, Ive never understood the need for a front derailleur, now with todays cassettes more than ever.
>>947639 >Is it just way form manufacturers to save money on a front derailleur, or what? Partly that. Partly for manufacturers to get people to "upgrade" to 1x and buy more stuff. Partly because, with wide cassette ranges, front derailleurs aren't really needed, and having a 1x setup allows for more smooth shifting. Imagine if you're running 2x11, you're in your small chainring and 4th smallest cog, you want to upshift. Going to 3rd smallest cog is getting into crosschaining... Comment too long.

Putting a pretty girl on a skateboard doesn't change the fact that skateboards are cancer and skateboard "culture" is a festering pustule that needs to be destroyed.
The irony of these "skateboard is not a crime" stickers that dirtbags vandalize property with is that, without exception, every time you see a dirtbag on a skateboard (>implying you are not a dirtbag by definition if you're on a skateboard), they're committing some kind of crime. Even if it's something as trivial as drug possession, or as severe as thousands of dollars... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Cyclists taking part in French sportives, including L’Etape du Tour, hugely popular among British riders, will not be able to do so on bikes equipped with disc brakes after the French cycling federation (FFC) decided to ban them.
aviation is the same >high bypass wing mounted twinjets are the only real options for anything larger than a commuter plane [maybe a380 + 748, but the level of diversity has still plunged] >727, dc-9, 737-200, bac-1-11, l-1011, dc-10, md-11, dc-8, concorde, etc are all dead. just fucking kill me. seriously just fucking do it.
>>951013 At my country (Spain), there is a luxury train, the Al Andalus, it's not a transportation train, it's a turistic one, you can get one ticket for 3.500+ euro, and you will travel through the country for 6-7 days. I think it's really difficult to get tickets because they are sold instantly and the queue is really big.
Post your ideal kind of bike. Frame type, components, etc. And maybe tell other posters what bikes are close to it
I'd love to see more city-oriented bikes >chromoly steel frame, something like cyclocross geometry >drop bars, 1x crankset, fender and rack mounts. >25mm slicks but goo clearance for wider shit >disc brakes
>>949984 >There's no particular reason cromoly should be a dream requirement, it's just ubiquitous. You might as well just say steel. >implying all steel bicycles are chromoly You just went full downtube. >That's literally medium road width No. 21 is narrow, 23 is medium, 25 is wide. Yeah some people use 28 but that's mostly for endurance road bikes and gravel bikes and such, and people use narrower than 21... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Why arent there more used bike shops? It seems like a perfect business model since bikes lose so much value so quickly. I want to buy a used bike but need to test ride a bunch to figure out what I might need. I feel like someone could make a lot of money doing this in denver where everyone has multiple bikes.
>>948106 >Are there any that are worth getting or are they still just overpriced novelties? There are some that are worth buying, mainly the high end ones. At lower price points it makes more sense to build your own, it's more cost efficient and you get more control over component choices so you don't end up with something like a department store bike with a motor slapped on it.
It's fairly easy to do with plenty of full kits available and the cost can be fairly low at under... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
