What's the deal with this new 1x trend? Is it just way form manufacturers to save money on a front derailleur, or what?

Also, what do you think of this new 27.5+/6Fatty thing?

12 speed cassettes plus massive rear cogs from the fat bike world gives you a lot of range and decent spacing.

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.

>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...

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...

What sort of tricycle should I get? I haven't used one lately but have been meaning to get back into human-powered transportation that can take me from my dormitory to my classes.

Tricycles are 1.5x as useful as bicycles due to their extra wheel. If only bikers would understand.

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.

I wan't to try unicycling.

What unicycle would be best to start out with? A 20" or a 24"?

I wan't a bike that is good for learning, but also capable to do tricks and jumping (not drops).

I am 170 cm (about 5.6 feet) and my inseams are about 30 inches.

I learned on this 26" but I wanted to be able to take it places after I got the hang of it. If you're purely in it for the tricks, probably a 20". Just know it will be ridiculously slow.

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...

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.

whats that?

-not that many people want steel bikes, which are the only bikes that hold value

-because buying parts to recondition can cost a lot

-Its impossible to sand/repaint aluminum or carbon frames

-there is a big liability risk with aluminum and carbon frames that have been abused

-there is little profit margin in selling buying fixing and then selling used bikes considering the amount of labor and parts that go into reconditioning a bike

Lets talk electric bikes, either bicycle style or motorcycle style.

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...
