Would there be any useful reasons for someone who bikes around town a lot but isn't touring or /fit/ focused to get a duotrap sensor?

You might find it useful to have a cadence sensor (to train yourself to pedal higher cadences) and a basic cycle computer that displays speed and distance, but there's no real advantage to using Trek's Duotrap stuff over any other kind of cycle computer.

Hmm, I probably do have really shitty cadence control. Far too long spent with terrible heavy rattletrap secondhand bikes with 6 speeds at most

IIRC there was some recumbent guy who absolutely btfo everyone so it was banned. But suppose you could cross a handcycle with a bicycle and somehow utilize your arm strength too, could you participate in UCI races? Is there any way you can hack around the UCI rules?

>>937544
the UCI is a tool of bike companies how, who don't want to have to change their products much.
If the UCI wanted to be totally fair with competition, each year they would designate the exact bike setup that everyone had to use: what tires, what tubes, what frame, what fork, what seat, what handlebars, ect, every little part specified exactly,,,, but that wouldn't go well with the normal bike companies who sponsor teams now, would it? And without the organized teams the media rights value would plunge.

Ive bought my first "expensive bike" which im more caring about than my car. what should i do to keep it rollin? Except only oiling the chain ofc. Also is it okay to wash it by dumping some water on it or will it rust?
10 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.

I spray mine off at the car wash and then hand dry it with a towel. The biggest thing to keep rust away is not to leave it out in the weather and clean it if you get road salts or other debris on it. Lube the chain from time to time and check it overall for loose parts... bikes can last a long time with minimal maintenance and lack of abuse

If you have an expensive bike, nothing will rust other than your drivetrain.

Best use is for casuals on under half an hour rides. Long term, aside from basic commuting equipment, you shouldn't look to upgrade that. Your next bike should be more specialized in whatever you like.

That noise in which you are hearing is "presumably" from the unit's traction motors, used by most rail vehicles of this era for propulsion.

Some are louder than others, and some are more "alien-like" than others.

rectifiers/frequency modifiers create audible vibration when converting 750 V DC to 3-phase AC needed by modern traction motors. As the frequency of the 3-phase motor has to be increased with the rotational speed, you get nice sounds such as here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ky7t6l0WcU

Hello /n/

What Dirt Bike has the longest fork tube?

I'm looking for a fork that is 33" inches in length and preferably less than 2" inches in diameter.

>>936711
First of all you don't measure fork length that way, it's measured from the centre of the axle to the lower crown bearing race seat (where the steerer tube joins the crown), called the axle to crown length. To then know if it'll fit your particular frame you need to know the headtube length and headset stack height, add them together and make sure the steerer tube is slightly longer than that.

Regarding your required dimensions, no bicycle fork is going to meet those except perhaps a Super Monster....

Depends on perspective. As a general answer, no, because it's part of a grand plan. The grand plan is to sell off the Sydney rail network in parts by way of "fake" privatisation where the infrastructure burden remains with the government but operation is given away on a diamond studded platter. In other terms, the public bears the cost while the operator pockets the $ and lines those of politicians (see: Metro Melbourne for a working example. MTR is slated to take this line. Somehow they are fucking amazing in Hong Kong but suck here, probably because they actually...

Anyone have one of those action cameras attached when you're out biking? Im looking to buy a Sony as200v since it looks much better than the gopro hero 4 according to comparison videos. The only downside is its shape. It will do fine mounted on the handlebars or post. But say, if I do any other sports/touring and I want a more stable chest or head mount, it's gonna look ridiculous with the camera sticking out like the chestburster. So Im stuck with which to get. Not to mention the gopro costs a lot more

The original plan of the Charleroi Metro was a very ambitious plan, it consisted of 8 branches joined together by a loop in the downtown. Funds ran out during construction, and today only 3 branches (and 4 lines) are in service. A fourth branch (Ch√Ętelet) was partially built in the 1980s but it was never used.

The image is a current map, with the original plan on the top-right hand corner.

This is actually great. I like how to the east it essentially emulates the Victoria line, then branches off at Northumberland Park to go to Cheshunt and beyond. A current dream for the Victoria line is services which stop at Northumberland Park somehow, well this solves it completely.
