Does anyone know of a site I can buy bike kits from? I've been wrenching at the local co-op the past year , need a challenge and assemble a bike that I can call my own. None of that pre-assembled stuff or shitty BSO tier kits.
Good condition second hand handbuilt wheels from craigslist. DA hubs or something. Clinchers & front brake track. Look for decent cheaper second hand parts for the rest too, you only need a new headset/ bottom bracket/ saddle/ bar tape/ brake pads/ tires/ tubes/ possibly drivetrain. A secondhand shop/ co-op is a good place for a stem because they should be able to let you swap sizes around to find out what you want. New parts you need from wiggle/ crc/ merlin/ ribble.
It would be better to throw your pure fix frame in the trash and buy a used complete bike/ stalled... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Why is Toronto Canada's subway system so fucking terrible?
Pic related is the current subway system in Toronto. There are FOUR LINES. One of them (the blue one) isn't even a subway, it's an LRT, or light rail transit, basically a smaller, slower, above ground train. And that purple one by the top, can you really even consider that a subway line? It's only 5 km long. There is currently one more LRT line under construction, but it's going to be shit when it's finished five years from now, and in the meantime, traffic on the roads in the areas... Comment too long.

Is the purple line heavy rail transit or LRT? IMO the Canadian gov should just splurge money on the subway for a massive expansion so you won't need to keep spending a few billion here and few billion there every few years to meet the growth.
Do you guys like riding on gravel? What kind of bike do you use for gravel rides? Have you ever ridden a gravel grinder race or gravel group ride?
I don't really like riding gravel but I sometimes ride gravel because there are a lot of gravel roads where I live and sometimes gravel bike trails are convenient routes. I use my commuter/randonneur rig, I think having a bike specifically for gravel is stupid. Fuck n+1, having only a few bikes (and minimal overlap between the types of riding they are good at) makes each bike have more meaning.
Old one is on autosage. Would fancier wheels reduce the amount of windup flex from braking with disc brakes? More spokes? Different spokes? Different lacing? I switched a few months ago and I find the flexing a little bit disconcerting.
I'm just getting into riding again. Commuting to work the other day was so much fun I decided I'm gonna start going on longer rides as long as it doesn't interfere with my weight training.
Anyway, i don't think there's a c25k style program for cycling. There's really not a need. There's no limiting factor when it comes to riding continuously like there is running. Buuuut. How do you get better as a complete beginner?
For todays ride, I took it easy. I made sure I was capable of singing (Don't you want me, baby? *gasp gasp... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>895154 Golden era will return. As lack of coal suggests completely different economy. Most likely one with less personal transport, more urbanisation (less sprawl) and subsequently, large urban centers connected with plethora of freight carrying rail lines.
I would think a Montral-Toronto-NYC HSR line could be viable. GL getting a teafag congress to help fund it though. Maybe if Bernie manages to win the 2016 election and dems retake congress its possible.
I had Panaracer GravelKings in 700x28c this last season. They were pretty good. I felt like they only lasted the one season and I flatted probably 6 times between March and September riding ~150km/week.
I plan to switch to 25c next season.
I'm looking at the following tires (price is for a pair):
Are you looking for a pavement tire or a gravel tire? Also, how much do you weigh? There are other options out there depending on your answers...
1. GP4000s are a fabulous road tire, will deal with gravel tolerably well if you're a lightweight rider, good flat resistance. 2. Gatorskins have excellent flat resistance and roll well, but not as fast as the GP4000 - if you're a heavy rider. But if you're a lightweight rider, you'll likely find them slow and unpleasantly firm on gravel because the sidewalls are very stiff. 3. I'm not familiar... Comment too long.
