With them being so expensive I want to be sure to buy one I love that will suit my needs and last years. When I was a kid my friends and I used to bike all over our little town on mountain bikes, and I really loved it. Now over a decade has passed since I've even owned a bike and I'm hoping to get fit again.

Bike would mostly be used on pavement and some concrete sidewalks, but I live in the mountains so flat roads are a rarity. Really hoping to bike to work when it warms up some, and there will be some very steep roads in doing so. There may be times when I'll...

Who said anything about riding through people's lawns? Guess we sometimes did that as kids but kids are assholes. Was mostly thinking of cutting through parks to save time, or like empty fields we have around here. Riding around on campus is a lot of grass too.

Why have these gone out of style?

I mean, think about how practical they are, or the shoes with the fold out wheels.

Easily transition from walking to rolling in seconds, comfy, fashionable.

Because industry consensus is that it's not worthy?

It's not difficult to strap a few prop drives or ducted fans together with a gyro chip and make a "flying thing", people do it making quadcopters all the time.
Making it bigger isn't really much more difficult than making a small one.

The two problems with the person-carrying ones are-
1) the obscene rate of fuel consumption...

Doesn't look all that much better than the flying platforms that have been around since the 50s. Does it have a much better range or something?

It could make a real difference if they convince people that's it's a tiny car rather than a covered motorized tricycle, and get single people to buy it.

Yeah, nah son; shitpost somewhere else. That said, he is a good all rounder though.
People make his aero tuck out to be way more than it actually is. It's really not that difficult to get into that position...

That being said, he's EASILY the most entertaining cyclist out of the whole bunch though
wrong; Cancellara and Contador are.

Very few can descend in such a manner in the "full" tuck though.

Whats up /n/,

I'm hoping to purchase a cheap motor scooter for the summer for cruising around the streets and hopefully getting laid a couple times because of it. I need a cheap, reliable model that I can find relatively easy on CL or ebay or what not. I don't care if it looks shitty or small, as long as it works desu. I wouldn't even mind like a mini bike. Also, what should i be aiming for in terms of budget? Thanks

Get the cheapest you can find. So long as you can change tyres, spark plugs and clean the fuel filter it'll keep going in a straight enough line.
Get a Japanese 125cc motorcycle from the 90s/early 00s.

Can be kept running with duct tape and a hammer, will last forever, and are still a motorcycle so you wont look like a complete numpty.

I left my wing in the truck during a heavy rainstorm and now it's completely soaking wet. How fucked am I?

It's a movie.
He's bike had to be unique and interesting, and at the same time be a sort of underdog like he was.
The movie pointed out how much 'better' traditional geared bikes where, several times, during several races and scenes.
I mtb, so don't really have a dog in this fight, ride whatever you love to ride.
Back in the 90s Messengers used to ride MTBs, nowadays they mainly use Fixies. In the near future.. It will be yet another hype
I'm more curious as to why he's using that fuckhuge retarded impractical chain lock

physics, economy, technology, etc.
And of we some day find a solution they will come up with clever laws and governmental regulations to prevent this.
The moon is pretty close. That's worth visiting. additionally, being able to leave orbit would let you travel across the planet much faster
In a nutshell, the problem is propulsion.

You have to carry a lot of consumables (fuel and/or reaction mass) to get to orbit. So if you want to get 10 tons of people, armor and guns into orbit, you'll need several hundred tons of rocket to do so.

This is the case not because of some momentary technological deficiency, but because of fundamental physics - you can't speed up without pushing against something, and in space there's nothing to push against.

BQG! Old one maxed

Can I respace my 130mm rear hub to 128? It's a cup and cone claris system and I want to use it on my late 80's model bike that currently has 6 speed. Can't set the frame as it's aluminum.
255 replies and 58 images submitted. Click here to view.
Yes, you can respace a Shimano 130mm hub to 126mm by taking 4mm of washers off the non-driveside and then redishing the rim (note that this will slightly weaken the wheel overall). Be aware that unless you have unusually thick dropouts, you'll either need to cut the axle down a bit, or borrow one made for a 126 hub, otherwise the end of the axle made for 130 spacing will protrude and prevent you from closing your QR skewer.

Ahhh I see. Doesn't sound too bad! Pic is project, gonna take my 8 Speed Mavic CXP22 wheelset off my other bike and build up an 11 speed set for it, then put the 8 speed on this!

Although it would be ridiculous, I suppose I could run 10 speed on this hub with friction too couldn't i?
is commuting 25 miles on a single speed a sensible idea?
