All you people talking about how" fast" a bike is, are fucking idiots.
There is not much difference in bikes except for weight.
Lance Armstrong on a huffy is going to be well faster than you are on a race bike.
Fast is about the rider not the bike.

not true at all, the tires make the biggest difference.

A bike with 25 mm 4000s II at 110 psi is going to be lightyears different to a bike with 30 mm marathons at 70 mm

Hey /n/, I'm in my early thirties, only now learning to ride a bike. I've got the absolute basics more or less covered, i.e. I can ride on a 2 meter wide bike road, provided there are no people or other obstacles, no sudden turns, the weather is good, the road surface is well-kept, ...
Ideally I would like to eventually use my bike to commute to work, which means I need to continue improving, as I wouldn't be able to benefit from most of those nice circumstances I just mentioned.
Do you have any tips or online resources that would help me build those skills?

>too much to read for a one-sentence question
Find local bike clubs in your area that do group rides, hopefully they have a beginners group, hook up with them, ride with them, be humble and take direction from experienced riders there to help. Or find a local cycling coach that gives skills clinics/classes and go do that. This is not a read-a-book thing this is a do-it-more thing if you want to improve.
I know practice is paramount, and just reading books won't get me there, but written/video explanations can still be useful, and so can outlines of drills/exercises for students, or descriptions of "you need to be able to do these things to ride in traffic safely". All those things could help me get more results from my twice-a-week practice sessions.
It's not easy to google for that kind of stuff as you get a lot of results for advanced tricks that don't really apply to me. One of the few...

Its best not to corner too aggressively unless you are certain of the road conditions.

Sand, gravel, mud, wet wood, wet metal can all make your front tire slip out and cause a crash.

Those smooth manhole covers without any holes look innocent enough but can be crazy slippery, so I avoid going over them while cornering. Even going over an individual pebble while corning hard can make the front tire shift an inch as it rolls over. One wood bridge around here...

ITT: 650B is the new 27.5" See, if you put "fattie" tires on your 26" you can get all the benefits of 27.5"'s increased circumference but with bigger contact patch, better ride quality, mountain goat climbing, and "slack" geometry. Not to mention you can have a confidence-inspiring 1X drivetrain. BUY BUY BUY! Or, just put big tires on your 90's rigid and spend the rest on weed.

I'm hoping it comes out either in Fall '16, or in the same season the Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club adaptation airs - having two competing bicycle anime airing in the same season would be intense.

Only absolutely brilliant projects.
Like installing Traffic Lights where it makes no sense and causing traffic jams. Building an insanely huge roundabout in a simple branch. Make the main road narrow for no reason. Forcing all heavy traffic to go through that bumpy old side road where I live. Build an awful bike lane which suddenly ends at the most dangerous curve. And force bikers who are stupid enough to use it to cross the road there.

Is there a difference between a 2011 and a 2016 Ultegra groupset?
If yes, how significant is that difference?
I have a 2014 Specialized Allez with a Claris groupset and I want to swap it for a 2011 Scott bike with an Ultegra groupset.
I'll give my bike + $$$ difference.
26 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.
Yes, there's a ton of difference. Why wouldn't you spend that cash buying a modern groupset for the bike you have instead? Tiagra 4700 would be an upgrade over Ultegra 6700 in a couple of ways. Mainly the sane cable pull ratio.
Ultegra 6700 (and DA 7900) was garbage. You'd be getting a downgrade, if anything. Shimano fucked a lot of things up with their first attempt at aero cable routing. They fixed their shit with 9000/6800/5800.

Just upgrade your Allez to 105 5800. You can get the groupset for around $400, and decent 11sp wheels like Campy Zondas for $300 or so. It'll feel like a whole new bike.
Hey there, thanks for your reply.
I don't think my bike is good enough to invest on upgrades. I got it brand new for $700. I would have to give at least $400 to get a new groupset.

What are some good quality cycling gloves? Thinking about picking up a pair because my hands are getting a bit of a blister bump from riding so much.
29 replies and 8 images submitted. Click here to view.
My GF just got me some absurdly good Fox Reflex Gel full finger gloves. Also got a fingerless Bontrager ones. I HIGHLY recommend getting them at a LBS or somewhere you can try them onn. There's a lot of difference between sizes among different brands, and tha padding on some may be uncomfortable for you. Try several on, and be sure to test them grabbing some handlebars, because you might find them comfortable upong putting them on, but not as good while you're grabbing the bars.
I like Giro LTZ II. Very minimalist gloves.
