Ever since I switched to a camelbak from a screw top oxo water bottle, I've been worried about drinking germs. I figure maybe it's a fashion from people who only ride in immaculately groomed sterile conditions.

Where I ride I constantly ride over pancaked dried up rats, live rats, partially squashed fresh rats with guts everywhere, mummfied pigeons, heaps of bird shit, occasional human shit, garbage juice gushing out of overfilled steaming dumpsters, and in the autumn, piles of putrifying leaves. Last month there was even a dead body, although the city took...

If your streets are that dirty you should use fenders anyway. And those should protect your bottle too.

The normal street dust that collects on the valve isnĀ“t that dangerous and just the same stuff you breathe in anyway. Just clean it after every ride. You know you can disassemble the valve, right?

>>898729
Of course I use fenders, that's a given for anyone who rides for transport. This is /n/ - Transportation, isn't it?
>Just clean it after every ride
That doesn't really make sense to me, first of all it's a given that you'd clean your bottle every day, but second, who drinks from a camelbak bottle when not riding a bike? The problem is the shit that gets in there when you're on the bike. Which can happen from road spray (from cars and other bikes), among...

Cover the nozzle with plastic bag and seal with a rubber band? Not the most elegant but it should work.

You guys have any opinions on crank length? I've recently started riding a different bike and I'm finding myself experiencing a lot of hip discomfort and don't feel as efficient. Just noticed it has 175mm cranks whereas my other bike had 170mm cranks. Could that be the problem? What length do you run normally?

1. Yes, that difference in crank length could certainly account for your discomfort, especially if you have shorter legs.
2. Ideal crank length depends mostly on leg length and rider preference - using longer cranks gives a slight advantage in producing torque, shorter cranks will encourage efficient spinning.
3. If you want a data point to compare to, I have a 33" inseam and find 172.5 to be optimal
>>
>>895605
Mostly what I've read suggests crank length problems usually cause knee discomfort, which is kinda why I was confused. Not actually sure what my inseam is, but based on my height it's probably around 31", and that would make a lot of sense based on your preference because I like the feel of 170.
>>
I'm 5'6" so crank length is important to me. Unfortunately most manufacturers only make 170-175cm cranks, and sometimes 172.5cm ones, just to cut costs.

The only ones doing a really large variety of sizes with reasonable prices and availability are Touring crank manufacturers like Sugino and Stronglight, but those are all old designs with square taper BBs and the like. Not so good for modern road bikes.

I did at one point. I used to work for an airline and at one point I sold my vile murdercage for a crabbon gofast trektrektrek. I would ride to work at the airport on my work days, but on days off, I would still ride to the office, leave my bike there, and take the employee shuttle to the terminal and get on whatever plane had the most empty first class seats going somewhere interesting. Then I'd fly back that evening and ride my bike home from the airport.

Those were good times.

How do I into motorcycles?

I'm a 25 year old male living in Los Angeles, and bikes just seem like a more efficient form of transportation out here. Not to mention they look fun as hell. I rode small dirt bikes when I was much younger, in my early teens, but haven't been on one since. How do I go about learning bike laws and getting a class M license, etc? What would be a good bike to start on for a 6'2 180 lb man?

you'll probably want a honda 350 of some sort. try not to get anything earlier than '85

My first bike was a nighthawk 250.
You'll want something a little bigger, just so you'll have some pick up and go when you need it.
LA freeways are hell, but a motorcycle makes them fun.
Be defensive all the time.

oh and if you want to learn about moto safety laws, get the handbook from the DMV and read it.
The permit test is super easy, you can fail it twice, and still have a chance to pass it.
The CHP motorcycle safety class is worth it, it will usually make your insurance payments cheaper and will pay off in the long run.
A moto permit doesn't allow you to ride with a passenger, on the freeway, or at night.

Good to know. Should I find someone with a bike to ride and practice a bit before actually taking the test or riding in traffic? Is it anything like the driver's test when you get your DL?
