It's no more a risk than driving with your windows up, or listening to the radio. Of course, you don't have a cage around you to protect you, but if you're gonna die because you're so into your music, then likely you don't have the situational awareness to be on the road in the first place.

I just got a mostly finished mountain bike, but the back wheel is missing 3 spokes(I don't have any mtb wheels to swap either)I rode it about a quarter mile home, now my question is, is this safe to ride gently 5 miles to my LBS so I can respoke and true my wheel? Or should I just bungie the wheel to my road bike and take it down? Because I also wanted to tune up my bike there since they have way more tools and they let me use a station and all their gear when I need work. I could respoke it and take it home, then ride the mtb, but I don't want to if it isn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Anybody here wear Chinese shit? I already have shorts and was thinking of getting some jerseys for the pockets now that it is getting to hot most of the time for my jackets. Going full ching chong off of Amazon seems cheapest since the brick and mortar shit is all made overseas anyway and I prefer some of the designs over solid colors. Getting the sizing right seems like a complete cluster fuck though.
Anyone got any anecdotes or experience with Nuckily/Wolfbike/Arsuxeo/Wosawe/Xinzechen/probably a dozen others?
>>975771 I have a Racmmer jersey (bought off aliexpress). Only used it once. The fit is weird, the fabric is pretty shit and sizing is indeed a clusterfuck. Unless you really want/need a full zipper and/or 3 pockets you'd probably be better off going to Decathlon.
WHY THE FUCKING FUCKDAMN SHITCUNT ARE CONTINENTALS ALWAYS SO HARD TO MOUNT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR TEWNTY MINUTES AND I'VE MADE ALMOST NO PROGRESS WHAT THE FUCK YOU KRAUT DOUCHENOZZLES SO MUCH FOR GERMAN EFFICIENCY REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I MAD FUCK YOUR SHITTY MEME TIRES
It's probalby out of alignment due to cable stretch. Look at the bike from the back and make sure the pulley gear on the derailluer and the selected gear on the cassette are aligned with each other.
If it's aligned with most of the middle gears, but it's skewed on either the top or bottom gear, it's a problem with the limit screw. The limit screw keeps the derailleur from sliding your chain too far out, and there's one for the upper and lower limit. If it's misadjusted, it'll keep you from getting into the upper or lower gears properly.

I fucked up while adding more info, those 3 lines were supposed to be together.
Is there a bike for life? Is it reasonable to buy one? Would/did you buy one? What would it be?
I'll be 30 soon and I want to get myself finally a nice bike, something like pic related, to serve me till I'm 60. Of course you have to change the parts that wear out but frame and multiple other parts have no reason to go bad even over the span of years. My body proportions will not change anymore too. I do light touring and commuting mostly.
I might be missing out on new advances over the years, but on the other hand some advances are not worth it... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you built a bike for life 20 years ago, you'd be stuck with a 1 inch steerer and rim brakes, who knows what the industry will come up with in the next decade or two? Graphene frames might be right around the corner.
I have a paratrooper. It's not bad outside of being kinda heavy for what it is. I'd only go folding if you ride trains or fly a lot. In my case I hop trains to random towns in japan and just ride in a random direction all weekend.
>The bicycle relies on a corrosion-resistant drive belt, rather than a traditional bike chain. Ikea claims the drive belt will last up to 9,320 miles (15,000 kilometres), which is two to three times longer than the average chain drive.
A month ago I posted about how to treat road rash from a crash where a paint stripe caused me to lose traction and crash. A couple people told me to kill myself for crashing on a paint stripe. Anyway, I went back today and the stripe was ground down lol. Apparently crashing on it was a thing.
