>>948270 I've seen several bikes sprayed with bedliner, and they all looked horrible, plus the finish was rough enough that it would probably take skin off in the event of a crash. I would not spray a bike with bedliner unless it was a beater bike you were planning to abuse.
Hey, I'm the guy who yelled at you from my buddies car today, you looked like a pretty bad ass mother fucker, I felt pretty safe in the car, after you called me faggot I broke down in tears and my three friends in the car consoled me and assured me that I wasn't a faggot and you just a mean bully.
I hope to never see you riding your bicycle again because it will trigger me and I will break down in tears
In my country, we have the law that you can hear music with headphones etc, but you are not allowed to make it very loud so you can still hear the traffic etc. For some reason everyone thinks that you are not allowed to hear music on a bike at all, so it already happened twice that police stopped me because my headphones. What the heck, this is so fucking annoying. Anyone got similiar annoying misunderstandings ?
>>948012 I hate people who listen to music on bikes. No matter what. Speakers: dirtbag tier, just seriously what the fuck. Headphones: shit-for-brains tier, you're always completely unaware of your surroundings and doing something stupid. The cops were right, you should have been tazed for resisting arrest.
It really depends on where you are. I live in New Jersey, right next to Philadelphia and when I make my commute into the city, I would never wear headphones. But on the weekends if I make my way out into the pine barrens I'll rarely see a car, so I don't feel unsafe listening to some music.
Uh, /n//? How do I pump up a presta valve? I'm serious. I purchased a floor pump for my road bike and I am literally scared that I am going to bend/break the presta valve tip right off the first time I try to put the presta pump part on. It looks really, really delicate.
Am I supposed to unscrew it all the way to the top when pumping it? Just halfway?
>>947741 You need to unscrew the thing at the tip. Just give it a few turns. And make sure your pump is presta-compatible. Some pumps have one side for presta and another for schrader. Others you have to screw off the cap of the pump head and flip around some pieces inside.
>>947741 >Am I supposed to unscrew it all the way to the top when pumping it? Just halfway? If by "all the way" you mean screw it til it comes off, you shouldn't be able to do that. It only screws a few rotations at most then you won't be able to turn it anymore. So just loosen it all the way til you can't turn it any more. Also, after unscrewing it, before putting the pump head on it, it's a good idea to tap the head of the valve stem with your finger. Sometimes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I live in a city that has had thousands of earthquakes over the last 5 or 6 years. many roads are newly paved, and smooth as fuck, while many are bumpy as shit like in the picture. many are just gravel due to ongoing and constant roadworks from repairing the road, and fibre-optic cable installment. I want a bike that can take advantage of the smooth roads, while being confident in riding over gravel. I also dont want my nuts burst from going over bumps with no give. Anyone have any suggestions.
>>947555 >sprung brooks When I say "brooks type" I mean something like pic related, if you're too fat for this, just get a full suspension mountain bike with big ass knobby tires, that's what all the fatties in my area ride.
Also notice the part about "stay out of the saddle", but, again, sprung brooks means you are fat, and if you are fat, go full sus with a suspension seatpost as well, because you are not strong enough to stay out of the saddle.
I like to watch Velodrome racing. Most of the ones I go to I'm racing in though so I don't get too much time to watch..... Last year I got the flu from my coach before my racing started at one race I traveled to race in. So I got to sit in the stands and watch the racing instead of being in it, that was nice. And I'm sure I infected large numbers of fans.
I worked there for a few months at the beginning of last semester and the employees/managers were total shit, and because the food was so cheap, you hardly get any good tips. The best part was being alone on the bike rides, but damn, is that worth it?
I've been thinking of doing some bike related projects for awhile now. My commute takes my by a thrift store that occasionally has bulky items, but they won't hold anything. I was thinking that something like the pic would be really useful for moving bulkier/larger items without a huge penalty when not in use.
