What is cross country bike. Any difference from 1995 to 2016? I was born in the 80s and rode a lava dome and a Kula. Should I get one of those again. I live near trees. Should I do cross country races.
Do old bikes get out performed by new bikes. If so how much.
What has changed= most xc racers now ride 29er wheels, disc brakes are amazing, way better air suspension forks, pedal Bob minimal with new air shocks,stems are shorter, top tubes longer, handlebars wider and most importantly a new bike will be significantly lighter.
It helps, for sure. More so if you're at/nearly pro level and crank out some serious watts.
For touring? It seriously doesn't matter a bit. It's not worth the extra weight of bringing hardsole shoes for pedaling AND trainers for campwear/exploring. It always baffles me when people buy hundreds and hundreds worth of titanium shit even cut off the handles of their toothbrushes, yet bring way too many clothes and fucking two pairs of shoes plus sandals.
>>973774 The thing is Tory knows the Subway extension is bullshit. He was a strong supporter of the SLRT before he ran for office. Add to the fact that he was once CEO of Rogers Cable so he knows it is ludicrous to spend what could be 4 times more money for such a low return on investment. He is in way to be deep now to go back and he is to bone headed to admit it.
The team estimates that just one part of the reserve in Tanzania could be as large as 54 billion cubic feet (BCf), which is enough to fill more than 1.2 million medical MRI scanners. "To put this discovery into perspective, global consumption of helium is about 8 billion cubic feet (BCf) per year and the United States Federal Helium Reserve, which is the world's largest supplier, has a current reserve of...

When I go up a hill I notice that it's usually my right quadriceps muscle (I am right leg dominant) that is feeling the burn a lot more than my left leg, even though they should be doing the same amount of work.
After I'm done in those hours after when I get some wobbly legs from the biking, both legs feel the same, but going up the hill itself, only one leg feels more
Ok so I'm planning to go with some friends on some downhill trails. The trails aren't too crazy or anything from what I've been told. I need to buy a bike though. Haven't rode one in quite a while. Never done any downhill trail stuff, just normal kid stuff. Riding long distances and cruising through town.
So I'm completely new to this. My friend told me to get a used freeride bike. What should I be looking out for? Keep in mind I also want to do some distance stuff. A freeride bike would be fine for that too right? I mean it's not made for... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>973103 you're talking about discipline-specific equipment for several different disciplines.
the best bike for shit you want to do seems like a long-travel AM bike with lots of slack. general consensus for 2016 is that the transition patrol is THE 1-bike-quiver bike if you live in an area with a lot of DH or are planning on traveling to DH bike parks. they start pretty cheap considering the sport you're trying to get into (3k for the low-end spec). i'm personally riding a transition scout, which is a shorter...

>>973105 Well it's not exactly multi discipline. I just want to do some distance stuff for exercise. I don't need to do so efficiently.
I also don't have an assload of money to spend. Also this whole thing is meant for fun, not sport. One of my friends competes but she's not extremely knowledgeable on anything but straight up downhill racing. If it helps the trail we'd be riding would be the Post Canyon trail in Oregon. It's not crazy.
Hey /n/, I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but I need help. I am looking for a casual commuter bike for travelling to and from work (6 miles each way). I am new to biking and would greatly appreciate if you all could give me some feedback whether this would be a good purchase or not. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/bik/5647387366.html Any and all help is appreciated.
Here's a better idea: stop building roads, and bar cages from using the existing ones
Then maybe idiots would stop buying property 3 hours away from anything useful, and then another 363,241 people buy property in the same isolated patch of land, and then they all bitch and moan about not enough roads and we have to build about fifty more
I have decided to start riding my bike to work and to get from my house to the main road is basically 2 miles straight downhill before even getting to the road. I hit like 30 MPH going down it and I always get terrified that I will burn out my brakes or crash that speed.
Even though going up that hill is tough, I like it more than the fear that downhill riding gives me.
>>967112 I hit 47mph today without a real tuck and pedaling down the hill. I guess I'm not too scared of hills but I do make sure I have plenty of space to brake and I dont brake late into corners. I guess you can say I respect hills and the possibilities of dying if I do something stupid.
