The new interiors look like something you'd find used as propaganda in a communist shit hole like Belarus or the DPRK. "New" veneer on something that is obviously still old and shitty. I prefer the old interior. There was nothing particularly wrong with it other than being old, and at least it's being honest.

Hi /m/. Normalfag here. I have been told for the type of riding I'm doing, my equipment is not as gratifying as it could be to ride. I use a MTB from Academy Sports that I got as a gift last Christmas. I've been riding MTB on the road for four years. I've joined cycling groups and can keep up fine, but apparently the bike is keeping me back. It's dual suspension.
Anywho, what is the best first road bike for me? Tell me what I want. I prefer the look of classic racing frames, if that matters

So geometry, weight, stance, and resistance has no effect on fitness? As long as you ride the little kiddie tricycle for 20 whole minutes you're good senpai?

goddamn im jelly, regardless of how many were made thats just a neat looking bike. The only thrift store around here that regularly has bikes doesnt have room inside for them so they just sit out in the elements all the time. I did get a nice, old, cruiser style bike from the Goodwill though, still working on getting it fixed up though.

nice find, OP, im digging those handlebars

So I'm homeless! I have about 260$ to spend on a bike that will last me until I can get a job, work for a couple weeks, and get un-homeless.

I live in michigan. It's snowing. Fuck. I'm 5'9" not very tall for a guy, so I probably am gonna go with a girl bike.

What does /n/ suggest for something that can carry my 270lb ass to and from work every day?

Oh and what are some general bike upkeep tips? What tools am I gonna need? Should I get insurance on it?

Greetings /n/ bikebros!

I've been looking for a way to liven up my daily commute, so I'm tinkering with the idea of installing a sweet stereo system in my bike to crank some tunes. Problem is I know diddly squat about audio systems.

I'm looking at this one right now http://www.bestbuy.com/site/pioneer-6-2-cd-dvd-built-in-bluetooth-apple-ipod-ready-in-dash-receiver-multi/2719011.p?id=1219561627718&skuId=2719011

Looks like a great deal at $80 off, plus it's compatible with my Apple iPod so I can play my whole iTunes library through...

Why do you want to make your bike weigh 100 pounds? You'll have to carry heavy speakers and a heavy battery to run all that stuff. Just get a bluetooth speaker that fits in your bottlecage and that recharges via USB, and that weighs less than a pound.

That's because you own four and spread your riding among 4 bikes, idiot. Each bike only gets 25% use, obviously they would take 4 times as long to crack and fail. Retard.

So I broke my bike by breaking and accelerating on it at the same time. Now the wheel is all wobbly and the bar that I circled in pic, which used to be attached to frame where arrow is pointing came off and is all bent now.

I need to know what it is called so i can get a new one.

Can anyone help me out with what it is?

I'm a 5'6" Sophomore college student, looking to buy a beginner bicycle just to get around campus to and from classes. My campus is generally flat and there is never snow on the ground.

What should I buy? I've never ridden a bike before in my life by the way, so I'd need to learn it.
