How do you /n/erds feel about the weird direction China and friends have been taking ebikes? Do you think it's going to spread or effect the west?

It's kinda funny seeing people building this shit with useless shitty pedals just so they can say it's just an assisted pedal bike that means I can ride in bike lanes and don't need a license!

That particular bike is stupid, but I think in general electric bikes are great for getting more people into riding their bikes for commuting. I love seeing the shit people put on bikes, too, like that one anon on here that modded the shit out of his bike to look like some kind of Batman bike.

Gas scooters with vestigial pedals for legal reasons are nothing new. It's a crap idea, but the legislators are to blame rather than the engineers. Now that batteries are better electric versions make more sense.
If you have one of these you are bad and should feel bad, and just get a real motorcycle already.
>>
Fun fact: In many jurisdictions removing the pedals is illegal as you would be required to register and plate the thing. Even though that type of e-bike isn't intended to be pedaled, most of them being single speed.

As long as I'm wearing breathable underwear I've always found jeans fine for commuting. I know some people use mtb baggies, that's all I've got.

I just wear sweats (not cotton) over my bike shorts in winter (so-cal). I carry a change of clothes and have a shower at work, so I don't mind the few minutes that my coworkers see me in my commuting gear.

Your saddle will wear holes in jeans if you use them regularly. Just wear lycra with some kind of shorts over them if you're self conscious.

As a young lad we used to ride side by side taking up the whole road in our quiet suburban streets. We'd call ourselves "The Road Hogs" because we hogged the road.

I want a mini-velo but I don't want to spend $800.

So, I found a $80 Walmart kids bmx bike with 7 gears and 20" tires. I thought I was in luck (just swap the handlebars and stem and call it a day) but then I realized the geometry of the frame and the angle of the seat wouldn't work.

So... I looked around some more and saw a similar kids mountain bike, and I think if I swapped out the suspension fork for a bmx rigid, it would adjust the seat post angle juuuust enough to be almost upright. However, then I'm worrying about the pedals slapping the...

That's cool.

In London (England), they recently implemented timetables that uses e-ink.

In my city, they hang up (paper) timetables at busier stops. If not, you call a number and enter in your bus stop number and it will give you the next arrivals.

Though, they want to install LED timetables inside bus shelters in the future.

We've all heard about cycling causing ED (erectile dysfunction)

But I also read that cycling reduces testosterone levels, and increases oestrogen in men

Is this true? If so fuck cycling and I'm never touching a bike again in my life

lmao, it's not true. Don't be such a fucking pansy m8y


Regular exercise boosts testosterone levels, being in the sun increases vitamin D levels which in turn boost testosterone levels. You'll only get ED if you have a piss poor bike setup


So maybe next time, stop being a little bitch???

Both are false. Take your /o/ propaganda somewhere else.

Mate I'm a cyclist, it's a genuine question

I know that over-training reduces testosterone, that's a given. Does that mean if I just don't over-train then I'll be fine?

Honestly, from experience, I reckon cycling boosts my testosterone levels if I don't completely exhaust myself (e.g. shorter, faster rides). After doing that sort of cycling I feel better, stronger, more aggressive, etc., so I reckon that sort of riding is good for testosterone.

So I'm hoping...

I've never owned or used road bike shoes and pedals before.
Are they worth their money?
