since I shit on many cycling trends and fads like memebrakes and 12s meme casettes, lets make a list of what have Megalized and crew done right in the road bike section in the last 20, 30y or so
Freehubs > Freewheel cassetes Better rim brakes > Bad old skul brakes Stiffy frame > Flexy frame BETTER TIRES ALL DAY ERRY DAY > bad tires Shorter wheelbase > long casual comfy sluggish wheelbase Helmets > flatcaps CARTRIDGE HUBS ALL DAY ERRY DAY > cup and cone Easy servisable cranks > meme old school twig cranks
Any of you guys have anything similar to these bike locking cages in your area?
They have them here in the Bay Area subway stations. They are 5 cents an hour and uses an electronic key card to get in and out of your own personal cage and are solar powered. Technically they are for bikes but I guess you could really put anything in them.
Way safer and more secure than the typical metal bike racks and pretty convenient too
Why isn't stainless more common? It has essentially unlimited service life unlike crackly fred crabbon. You are not a professional racer, why not get a bike that's actually useful? If it makes your friends less likely to bully you, you can always slap on some carbon fiber texture decals.
But was it a right decision? If we used modern, lighter materials, could we make them smaller? Small enough for them to have length less than 8 meters and able to carry average family?
Think about the possibilities. They are quite fast, we can make them very safe (yea, I know about Hindenburg, but it happened literally nearly a century ago) and most importantly, they don't take the streets, so you get no traffic jams.
>For 2,999 yuan (that's around $455) users get a bike that can assist the rider's pedaling for 45 kilometers on a single charge, and comes with a companion app that logs your distance, speed, GPS location, calories burned, and more. The QiCycle also has Shimano three-speed gears, folds down into a (relatively) compact package that weighs 14.5 kilograms, and has front and rear lights built into its frame.
e-bikes are already a thing. they're basically ostracized from bike communities though because they're lazy fat fucks who consider bicycle riding a kind of punishment to be endured in exchange for being "healthy", except actually using their legs to pedal is too traumatic to them so they think they can ease themselves in by getting an e-bike to test the waters.
anywhere that actually doesn't suck bans their use and possession, although enforcement is spotty.
