I always ride without sunblock, I know it's bad but I just never remember / can't be arsed. I'm not too pale though, so I never really get nasty sunburns, just some tan lines. No weird moles either.

Really dumb. People aren't buying into the "self-driving car" thing, so why would they hop into an AAV? A car is one thing; if the computer driving the thing has a brain fart the driver can take over, this thing has no flight controls. Even if it did, roughly 1/2 of 1% of the American population is a pilot of any stripes, so the other 99.5% would be useless in the event of an emergency. There's a reason the military isn't letting optionally-piloted aircraft run any sort of troop transport or...

I want a non-carbon road bike. How concerned about rusting a steel frame do I have to be if I want to wash it with a hose in my yard and stuff? I'm considering getting a stainless steel or titanium frame as I'm worried about corrosion.
255 replies and 47 images submitted. Click here to view.

>>912069
Corrosion happens when water sits in contact with steel for a long time, much quicker if there's salt dissolved in the water - so washing a steel frame with water is fine as long as it can dry completely after cleaning, and you avoid spraying water into the frame where it can be trapped and form a permanent pool. If you live near an ocean, or somewhere where salt is regularly applied to the roads, you can still use an ordinary steel frame, but in that case it's a good idea to use a rust inhibitor (framesaver)...

What's a good front and back light for my bicycle and why?
I've used a Sigma for 8 years now and the battery pack only lasts for like 30 minutes anymore.
When reading about some lights, there's no light that seems to be really fine. They all seem to be trash or maybe I'm just looking in the wrong direction.
Also I don't need to see 10000 meters ahead, I just need to be seen on the streets.
I'm willing to spend a decent amount of money on it.

NiteRider's combos are all you need for typical utility cycling. Their rear light is the best I've ever encountered. The front light's battery life is merely passable, so I would recommend getting a higher powered model and running it on a lower setting for more endurance. 200 lm is sufficient for road riding, though on unlit roads more illumination may be useful.

I would also recommend showing at least two lights to the rear, for the purposes of redundancy.
>>
>>911954
Thank you, I will take a look at it.
Do you personally own it? How does it do during rain? I guess for that price I can use it as an underwater light, no?
>>
>>911952
I'd suggest whatever super China lights you can get on ebay or at a hardware store.
In my experience, its better to consider lights as a consumable, either because they break, get lost, or stolen.
I work with a cat eye rear reflector light, and a CREE LED light and a battery pack.
Cost about 60 bucks all together.

You can't because there's no space. Also, spokes on well-built wheel don't break (for thousands of miles).

What rims/spokes did you have? Where did they break?

You suck. Obviously, we shouldn't use damn wheels because the original method of transportation was horse, and people intended that it was used in the future.

thanks, i see. coaster brakes have a larger diameter than a standard hub.

I had regular spokes and rims for a road bike, nothing special, the problem might be that they are not adjusted well, I've been to two different bike repair shops, but after both have adjusted them on two separate bikes they keep breaking,. At the moment I have two broken spokes.

I'm not fat, weigh about 70 kg, not super strong either. I might start adjusting the spokes myself, try to find an instruction video

Lambright, of Fredericksburg, told police she knew the iron bridge had a weight limit of six tons and wasn't equipped for semis due to a sign that was posted, but said she didn't know how many pounds were in six tons.

Lambright and her 17-year-old cousin who was in the passenger seat managed to escape unharmed.

According to police, Lambright was attempting to make a delivery at a Walmart when she missed a turning, reports WBIW.

She said she tried to turn around in a parking lot, but it was not possible because there was equipment in the way.

She told police she did not feel confident in backing up the truck so she then attempted to cross the iron bridge.

Lambright was traveling more than 30 miles per hour in order to get the vehicle stuck that far on the bridge, according to police.
