They will be constructing a hard link between the Montreal Trudeau airport and downtown Montreal. The very successful 747 shuttle bus operated by the STM has roughly 1.3 million passengers a year, more than the Toronto-Pearson UP, but the operational costs are negligent (its a bus) and the capital costs are non-existent, naturally. For this line to actually travel from the Saint-Laurent Technoparc to the airport, it would have to travel under hundreds of metres of tarmac. The construction cost of this tunnel will drive...

Kirkland, Quebec.

Not actually part of the municipality of Montreal, this sleeper community is one of the communities that will be served by the new train.
Pic related is a street 5 minutes from the proposed train station.

You can't even make this shit up. You can even tell from the construction that this is your typical North American boomer/cager/urban sprawl 1950s development.

Does anyone besides Nashbar make very small panniers? I want roughly 5L (300 cubic inches) per pannier (so 10L/600in total). I am aware that there are other options like frame bags, handlebar bags, trunk bags, etc. but I'm specifically looking for panniers. And something better quality than Nashbar.
Basically something just like the Nashbar Daytrekker but a different brand.

My second largest cog on my cassette makes clicking noises. I have a 11-32 so it's the 30T. I have a tiagra 10 speed, couple years old.
As far as I can tell everything is adjusted ok. All the gears are working although I've never been able to get the shifts perfect in both directions. The little derailleur wheel is directly in line with the cog so I don't think this is something I can fix by adjusting the index. I can't tell where the noise is coming from. Just really confused why it's only happening in that one gear.
>>
>>949050
First thing I would check is whether your derailer hanger is bent.

>>949042
Look at the Thule Shield, and the XLC Expedition (but this one's Chinese, like the Nashbar one).

what is the point of a slack head angle if you dont have a front suspension?
sure, some trailing of the front wheel gives a less nervous feel (that is why all modern road bikes have some + less wheelbase) but on rigid CX and MTB bikes of today just seems too much...

is it there to ease the counter-steering when cornering because that much trail sure doesnt help when going fast on a straight line.

I think toe strike is one reason

If you can get a slack ht angle and compensate on the fork rake, you can keep the front wheel from hitting your toes, especially with extra long cranks, fenders, fat tires, etc.

I've got a too-long bike that I actually like because I can ride with toe clips and fenders and have no toe strike. I'd rather have a bike with a swallow HT angle and a proper sized top tube but oh well
>>
>>948903

It sounds like you don't realize fork rake can compensate for various ht angles though, friend. Are you aware of that?

Here's a trail calculator you can fool around with

>>948916
>I think toe strike is one reason

no way that is the rason.
they deliberatly keep the rake down on road bikes to have a shorter wheelbase. specilized for instance keeps the trail around 5 cm but it could have go to 0 if they wanted to.

I had a pair of RS31 before buildning my dream wheels. Good wheels. Flattened spokes give off a weird whistling howl above 45km/h (30mph). Heavy hubs, but cup and cone design and offset rear rim for stiffness. Not for the WW.
Good wheels. Would recommend.

mmh, ty looks good, but since the bike is like 600€ and the wheels 160€ its still a sligthly over what i would pay, im just looking for wheels to repair the bike then i would buy myself a better one someday.

Hey /n/ I like to commute everywhere on my bike and I do so in my normal clothes. Problem is it's been getting into the 90 degree temperature zone and when I get some place I got a big sweat stain on my ass. Can anybody recommend a pair of cycling pants that will repel moisture or offer better breathability than regular jeans and not look like some dick hugging spandex capris?

You live in a hot climate and you've never heard of shorts? Get some baggy shorts (you can wear lycra underneath btw) and change into pants at your destination if necessary.

I haven't tried either of these but Kuhl makes some pants that are gusseted at the knees and have a few vent locations. IIRC you can get browns, greens and grey?

Hello, /n/,

I will be coming across a large sum of money (around $1000) in the coming week. My last bike got stolen last year (a shitty 7200 Trek hybrid) and it is now time to get a new bicycle.

I would like a bike that I can use on trails, gravel, and roads. Thus, I will probably end up getting a cyclocross bike.

Here's the main features I'm looking for:

Here is what I'm looking for:

Under $1000
Endurance geometry
Light
Carbon fork
Wide clearance for bigger tires
Able to change gears on the left handlebar easy
Drops
Don't...

My advice, get a bike fit beforehand so you know exactly what geometry and size to get. That way you'll know for sure that you got the right kind of bike for your body.
>>
You arent going to have many options at only $1000. A quick look on performance bikes even with sale only puts 2-3 bikes under your spending limit... then again I found an awesome deal on my road bike so you can maybe find one.
>>
>>945436

I will be doing this and going to my lbs. I don't want to get a trek or a specialized though cause they are expensive as balls. I might be able to find another lbs that sells other brands.

I have a cygolite taillight that has a built-in, non-replaceable rechargeable battery. In flashing mode it's good for like 35 hours and it recharges in like 2 hours. I also have a B&M taillight which is not flashing, the one AA cell I have in there now has been in there for like 3 months with an hour a day and it's still going strong.

In short, I don't know what kind of conditions you're expecting to ride in, but the headlights are going to be more of a concern, when it comes to battery...

Don't waste your time and money on cheap lights that use replaceable batteries, get USB rechargeable lights instead, it's worth the money and will pay for itself.

Such as the SuperX 105. This runs about $2k. Is that the price at which I can get a good carbon bike or is it entry level garbage?

I need a bike for fast, sporty riding (but not athlete level, just regular exercise) and have good income so I plan to spend a penny. Hoping to stay under $3k though.

Advice?

Don't spend that much. Limit yourself to 1K and buy from bikesdirect or craigslist. Basically you want something that if you lock it up the culturally enriched African American isn't going to bother to go home to get his axel grinder to cut off your d-lock.
>>
>>947953
But for that price, I won't get a carbon bike, right?

FWIW I never leave my bike unattended, I literally just go riding for hours and then go home. It's not a utility bike or method of transportation to me.
