People complain about the dangers of electric vehicles due to the lack of engine noise. But most modern cars make very engine noise unless they are accelerating. While listening for vehicles as I approach an intersection its usually just the tire noise I hear.

Hey /n/
If I'm 6'7" and 250 lbs (2m, 100kg) and looking for a rarely road, almost exclusively dirt trails bike, what am I looking for?

I haven't had a proper bicycle for a solid 6 years and that one was already a rusted cruiser. We recently moved somewhere that biking trails are abundant and beautiful. Please halp.

Do you want to do sweet jumps while bombing downhill, or is this more of a "flattish dirt trails" bike? Do you want to ride to the trails, or haul it to the dirt on the back of your car?

As I am currently travelling in Vienna I can tell you that the system is really "bad" and "ass". How comes you cannot get from the airport to the main station directly?
>>
>>905863
the current main station wasn't the mainstation until last year. It used to be the south station before the promotion.
Interestingly though, the west station which used to be the main hub, doesn't connect to the airport either unless you count the airport bus lines.

Big fan of ten speed hero's kit. I wish it was cheaper, but they support local races and sponsor teams. I own a few pairs of their socks and cap.

broken part.jpg
1 MB, 3696x2448
Alright everybody, noob post and I probably fucked up in a big way here but I'm ready to learn and fix my mistakes.

Was just out doing some recreational riding, and my pant leg unraveled and caught in my chain. I was going pretty fast and apparently the force was enough to snap a piece on my front derailleur (pic related). This is a SunTour Sport piece from what I believe is a 1975 Fuji Special Tourer. I bought it several months ago at a thrift shop for 20 bucks as my first bike since childhood, and I love riding it as a recreational bike. I'd like to either repair the part (which I suspect will not be possible) or replace it. As a newbie I have the following questions:

1) Do I need to get the same part as the original for the bike to work correctly, or can I sub in a suitable replacement?

2) If I need an original, then how can I certifiably identify the correct part? (or I'd just like to know out of curiosity anyway, I know nothing of bike part identification)

3) If push comes to shove, is a piece like this capable of being repaired? No idea what exactly you'd need to do but I know some people who might have the tools needed to repair metal parts.


I know I messed up but I try to focus on the positive, and I want to use this mistake as a chance to learn a valuable lesson about bike repair (on top of the valuable lesson about wearing the right stuff when you ride). Any help is greatly appreciated.
>>
>>914290
my bad, it actually says Spirt, not Sport. I found more on this page http://www.classicfuji.com/1975_08_Tourer.htm

There appears to be different SunTour Spirts available online but I can't really tell which ones are compatible.

Also I somehow bumped my foot into my front fender at an intersection, coming to a humiliating halt on 12th avenue as the fender folded into itself

Amazingly it didn't break and I just bent it back into place, it's still a little crooked but I was trying to beat the rain (failed on that)

New Recumbent General.

This thread is made for the discussion of velomobiles, all kinds of two-wheeled recumbents and open tricycles.

BaconRider is welcome.

FAQ
>Why do people ride a recumbent?
Comfort. A recumbent is extremely comfortable, since your whole back is supported, your vision is undisturbed and there is no strain on any part of your body.
Also, depending on the type and model of recumbent, they are more aerodynamic then uprights and thus also faster.

>Why are velomobiles so expensive?
They are cheaper then high end carbon bikes if you compare the building hours-to-price. If you use one to replace your car, it will save you money in a few years of usage. If you're to poor to afford a new one, buy a second hand one, they go for about 3000e, but I've seen them for 1000e.

A few video's for the interested:

I'm not a bent rider myself (reasons). But on an upright bike, when my heart rate goes above 150 for extended periods, I tend to dip my head down periodically to help blood flow to my brain.
Do you think the prone rider position of a 'bent gets more blood flow to the brain?

Why wouldn't /n/ tan be a cyclist? That's by far the most popular topic here.

My first thought is that /n/-tan would be a younger Yehuda Moon wearing the /n/ jersey.

The hell is up with that dropout

How much should I sell my bike for?

RRP for all the parts is around $12000AUD,

Looking to fund a new Aeroad CF SLX + Power Meter(for Shimano). I made myself a promise to buy one as soon as they become available in the country.

(Not selling with Carbons, selling with Shimano RS-81's)

About three thousand fifty dollars.

ayy

So does the $12000 include the enves or not?

Either way You'd probably be lucky to get 4 or 5k for it. From what I've noticed on gumtree it feels like high end bikes go very slowly.

THAT SAID, good fucking luck getting a Canyon. Apparently they've been having a great deal of trouble keeping up with demand for months now.
