>>898997 Wrong, the bill could be written in such a way that it does not unfairly stigmatize the small operations. The small operations aren't selling shit bikes anyway and any increase in cost would easily be offset by the large chains having to exit the market.
I used clinchers for 'cross this season and pinch flatted a couple times.
For next season, I'm contemplating whether to go tubeless (my rims are WTB tubeless-ready) or tubular.
I live in a ~1000 sqft. condo, carpeted throughout, with no garage or anything. If I get my LBS to put them together for me, is there a chance that tubeless wheels could make a mess if they're just sitting on my bike, in my condo? If I need to add/remove air, could sealant escape somehow?
"bike friendly" != "friendly". When you do it more then they do, then you can tell them how to do it properly. Perhaps you should just rent a car: happy parking! > GTFO of the goddamn bike lane kanker!
ITT: I answer questions and give advice on bike fitting, I'll be around for a couple of hours today so lay it on me.
Fitting is a broscience-filled field so I'll do my very best to cut through some of the "tradition" of bike fitting, especially regarding saddle tilt, knee angle, torso angle and medial/lateral tibial position etc.
Vaguely related, but any recommendations for someone who gets knee discomfort (stiffness, twingy feelings - but no pain) when riding in cold weather? I hate riding with tights on, on a long ride I can feel the tights 'gripping' my kneecaps and it's just as bad as riding cold.
Need some help, I bought a Merida Big 7-20md a while back and the crankset is pic related. I took them off to clean them and saw the bottom bracket is Shimano and not Suntour. What do I need to do to do a single speed conversion? I can install parts fine but it's the compatibility I don't get. The crankset specifically is the SR XCC 42-34-24 CG. Can I just buy a new crankset w/ chainring or do i have to get a new bottom bracket aswell? If so what do you recommend.
If you want a mountain bike for $500, buy used. A new mountain bike that price is going to be pure shit. pinkbike.com/buysell is a good place to buy. Possibly Craigslist too, but pinkbike is generally better for mountain bikes (unless you want a really old mountain bike without suspension). Post in >>>/n/bbg
Ya, sure. Looks OK for a thousand bucks. They will have made harsh compromises to get the price down that far, do not expect the forks, drivetrain, etc to last or perform. For a modest (250w) amount of power I think front wheel drive makes way more sense; enhances traction and stability, simplifies maintenance and design. Front light is nice but a real cut-off reflector light would be more polite and you need something on the back too. Big li-ion battery represents a big part of the total price here, they work great but don't last long. Can you get replacements that will... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What do you think the future for the Concorde will be? http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/sep/18/supersonic-breakthrough-concorde-could-fly-again-within-four-years?CMP=fb_gu http://news.sky.com/story/1530374/son-of-concorde-could-fly-to-new-york-in-an-hour
When I was 9 years old (late 90s), I read a children's "country guide" book about Japan that included a photo of platform pushers squeezing passengers into a train. Later in life I saw a video of the practice, and traced it to Lyle Hiroshi Saxon's channel, it was the Seibu Ikebukuro Line from 1991. I've also seen a video of pushing on the Tokyu Toyoko Line in 2006, at Naka-Meguro.
I would like to ask, in the year 2015, if "pushing" passengers onto trains is still common in Tokyo, either on JR, private or subway lines. I've been... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>902143 They don't forcefully shove you in. The person who gets pushed wants desperately to catch that train instead of waiting for the next one. The pusher is just helping you fit in the door so the train can leave.
That's why there's no problem, they're not bullying you, they're helping you.
Good evening everyone. Here we have tried to show that now can craft, made of modern materials and the effective mass of 50-70 kilograms per conditioned passenger trains is about one ton per passenger, as they say, feel the difference. And not fly high, also has some very serious advantages. First - we can feed an electric current from a steel trestle over which we fly, and it allows us to not have to aircraft such mandatory for autonomous aircrafts things as fuel, cooling, batteries, gears,...

So I was looking for airport videos on YouTube and came across the most unusual transport community: Lift enthusiasts!
At first I didn't quite understand why someone would film themselves riding several lifts up and down, then I checked the comments and there's a whole bunch of people commenting on the brand, speed, finishing and even the accent on the voice of the lift announcement. They're so excited about the new "Schindler 5500" as if they just saw a Concorde fly by.
What other less... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The best part about Japanese lifts is how unforgiving they are. When you press the door close button, they *immediately* close and many of them lack optical sensors so they'll munch the fuck out of your legs if you even think to try and hold them open

anyone have any information about subway car keys? apparently on some lines you get to be locked in for the duration of your ride for your own protection.
my sister who through her own mistaken life choices finds herself commuting on such trains to the manhattan financial district daily, does not necessarily want to be imprisoned with the other commuters.
>>902837 did this resolution pass? http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20101214/manhattan/council-pushing-unlock-doors-between-subway-cars
i've been reading about it all day, my sources may not have caught up with reality but i think there are still cars that are locked. the side doors probably can be forced open, but not by my tiny sister.
