>>931106 Same reason why NBA is dominated by blacks. Racial differences aren't just skin color, some races have different physiological traits. That, and the fact that cycling teams don't recruit black people for their teams in fear that they'll steal every single bike.
People tend to participate in sports that they can watch or participate in as kids, and for most of its history road cycling has been almost exclusively a European sport (before the 1980's there was almost no road racing outside of Europe) where there are lots of white people.
Even though road cycling has grown in popularity around the world since then, in places like the US and Australia and even European countries with plenty of immigrants, it's still mostly white people who participate because of cultural norms (situations where you stand out as a minority are uncomfortable), and partially because non-whites are often at an economic disadvantage that can keep them out of a fairly expensive sport.
>>930477 If you want to save money then get a wired type. If you want Ant+ and a bunch of features then get a name brand not some cheap thing you never heard of, and buy it in a store so if it goes bad on you, you have somewhere to go to get a replacement, not some dodgy seller on ebay.
>>929867 105 5800 is a nice groupset, but so is Sora 3500. If you want the two extra gears, hidden cables, and most importantly, _have_11speed_compatible_wheels (doubtfull), you can be your own judge about the value. Now, I don't think your wheels are 11speed compatible, so factor in a new pair of wheels as well. At least a back wheel.
I'd say get a nice set of handbuilt wheels before upgrading the groupset. Unless you're doing some more usefull groupset swap, like going SRAM for hand ergonomic reasons or some such.
This is for the home bike builders. Post your favorite bike parts. Parts that you'd use on multiple bikes. Tires, bars, cranks, anything.
Answer questions about WHY they are you favorite
> Salsa Cowbell bars (on two bikes) > Schwalbe Marathon Supremes (three bikes) > Kool Stop dual compound pads > Pinned pedals of all sorts. If you ride flats and don't have pinned pedals, you're missing out.
My best guess: It's showing potential conflicts in a shared turn lane during high traffic. The green car is unable to merge in to traffic so first turns in to the turn lane, where oncoming traffic may be turning from.
I've got an Bicycle build/Interview this coming Friday and my mechanic skills have been a little rusty as I haven't worked on bikes since my first bicycle mechanic job. So /n/ I was wondering if anyone knew of some guides on how to do a proper entire full road bike build?
It all depends on the type of bike and what kind of budget you are on. I would mostly brush up on parts/groupset compatibility, be familiar with modern and older road bike standards. Be knowledgeable on the different frame materials and their general properties. Sheldon brown's website is a good starting point for a refresher. Pick up a Park tools blue book of bicycle repair. I've found those to be useful as well.
I'm trying to get a job up in Alaska. In that southern part where it is all just isolated small towns on islands. The ferry travel times are ridiculous. Ferries have sleeping cabins and showers, because the trips are so long.
If I get up there. I'm going to have to get involved in politics. Just so the Alaskan ferry service can get some high speed ferries.
>>928736 >high speed ferries Fast ferries have trouble with logs and stuff in the water. BC tried it a while back and that was one of the (many) issues. If you live in a remote area, it takes a long time to get there.
My city has had a plan to build a 6 mile bike/ped trail looping around the downtown core since 1912. It's currently scheduled to be finished by 2018. >concept first described in the 1870's >fully mapped out and planned in 1912 as the city's "emerald necklace" >partially finished as part of the city park system, but then we had major floods, economic changes, car-infra became a top priority, and the downtown area nearly died after WWII because a swath of the city was bulldozed to make way for an Interstate highway and the federal government subsidized sprawl >plan revived in 1992, a few more sections that connect to nothing were finished before funding ran out >plan revived in 2012, nothing accomplished >plan re-revived in 2015 with stable funding >2018 scheduled completion...
