No. Because that would produce 2h of footage a day I'd never look at. It would be like recording my office job. In 25 years of riding bicycles in traffic, I've never been in a situation where I thought "damn, I wish I had that on video as evidence". Besides, it wouldn't be admissible in court where I live. Besides, I don't wear a helmet I could mount it on.

I bought this. It's a bicycle from the 90's. The original finish is ruined, the hub bearings are shot. There's this black crust everywhere that I may be able to remove with paint thinner and a brass brush.
I think I'll change the wheels, probably the hubs too if the cups are too damaged.
I thought about a quirky color like that, but that would be too much of an eye sore, so instead I'll refinish it in a faux-retro style, kinda like this.
I bought paint stripping gel. I should have researched the subject a lot more before starting this, because you can't use nitrile gloves. The paint stripper will melt them and it burns like liquid hell if even a tiny droplet stouches your skin. I managed to strip the paint off the fork completely and coat it with primer, but I'll wait until... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Should I buy a shim or a used carbon seatpost. Shim plus a 27.2mm seatpost should be slightly lighter, but not by much. I expect any comfort added by the carbon will be countered by the larger diameter. My plans for getting a used Thompson ended when the guy decided there weren't enough bids and pulled the auction.
The problem I see with the shim is that apparently water can do down the crack because there is no seal.
>>898153 You'll be fine either way - seatposts contribute almost nothing to bike comfort unless you get a suspension seatpost, and the tiny gap created by a shim is nothing to worry about unless you're storing your bike outside and exposed to the weather.
It is to my understanding that one of the major issues is that the RTA is somehow powerful enough to kek the CTA, Metra and Pace out of getting anything accomplished on their own, but not powerful enough to force them to do anything.
>>904047 25 million dollars probably won't even buy you a full El train set anymore. That being said the RTA and other associated agencies could be reformed to be more autonomous so projects wouldn't constantly get staled by political NIMBYism.
I got overly excited when my High Rollers and Minions came in post today, originally was meant to put the HR on the back and the Minion up front. Impatience got the better of me and I accidentally put the HR on the front/Minion on the back. Everyone else seems to have it what I wanted to do the first time. Mainly going to do XC and light jumps downhill. Am I going to notice a difference big enough for me to change it over? Huge pain in the ass the first time, hated it. Or will I be fine?
I got my first bike since I was a kid yesterday. It's nothing fancy, since I'm only planning to use it for commute.
The catch is, I'm unfit. Not to the point of pic related, but still, not great. A couple of days ago, when I first got it, I rode it from my usual bus stop to my house and it cut down my commute time like mad. From a 20 minute walk to a mere 5 minutes.
When I got home, I have no stamina, and my thighs felt like shit, which I expected, muscle pains, but the thing I didn't expect was my calves having no strength which... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's taken me a few weeks for my legs to not give out on me as soon as I get off the bike and I'm a sweaty, miserable mess five weeks into it every time I get off the bike but I'm down 12 lbs and I'm finding I'm less groggy and can stand for a lot longer without my feet and ankles starting to kill me.
They love ringing their bell on the sidewalk, while passively aggressively saying “excuse me!”, as if they have the right of way there too.
They'll sometimes do this while going full speed on the sidewalk.
It's even worse when it's a narrow sidewalk where I literally have to step into the grass to get out of the way. They'll also sometimes do this while riding down a steep sidewalk as if I'm supposed to know which way I'm supposed to move when they're behind me. Yeah, ringing... Comment too long.

Prepare your anus to sit in what seems like an endless traffic jam for 4 hrs to travel 6km. Also, some hijab girl will start talking loud on her phone or eating fucking durian. No thanks, bro. I'd rather walk in the 98% humidity and smell the piss and feces boiling in the gutters than ride an Indonesian public bus.
