>Inb4 lurk more/buy one it'll learn you

I need to know what I'm looking for before I can figure everything out for myself, and no QTDDTOT threads had these questions, and no threads had this question, so

Where can I learn the basics of what to look for in a new bike, where to draw the line on rebuilding a used bike(buy a 90's rigid frame MTB hurr), when to consider upgrading?

I lost my car due to an accident and am so poorfag that I am not getting any replacement for a good month and a half. Currently I walk 12...

You want a bike with a rear rack. The style of the bicycle doesn't really matter but you probably don't want razor thin tires. That's about it. You can learn everything on the Sheldon Brown website and YouTube.
There are bike buy generals. Post your local craigslist you won't want to go new with your budget

Generally seconding the other poster's recommendations.

How to learn more?
Read more. Work on stuff more. Talk with bike folks more.

When I was getting into bikes as an adult, Sheldon's website was definitely a useful resource for me. My bike was older, a 1986 10-speed, and that's sort of what his site is geared for.

Later, when I got a more modern bike, my Barnett's Manual was invaluable (download it first, then buy it later). There's a lot to be learned in there, even...

Do you ride an adult tricycle? Or use xl training wheels? Do you need to wear a helmet at all times whenever you leave your house?
Because you sound literally retarded.

Who does not know roadsigns and shit before leaving elementary school? Holy fuck.

Doesn't look like the frame offers anywhere to lock it if you can't take it with you at your destination for whatever reason.

Really you are better off with a folding bicycle.

hello there, ive been riding for a while but want to get better. dont want to race, just beat myself, push my limits (mainly in speed and resistance).
i know you will say get the cyclist bible.. thing is i live in south america and shipping books to my country is a pain in the ass and besides its 2015, we have internet, there's tons of free info regarding a lot of stuff.. i wonder how is there not gonna be a good source for bike training?

till now ive developed my own training, which consists on 4 rides a week, 3 short intense ones during the week (2-3 hours each), and one long relaxed in the weekend (4-5 hours).. i usually train on a hill during the week, climbing it several times and more flat on the weekend.. but im confused regarding elevating my cadence or pedaling slower but with more power.. or better said using heavier gears with slow cadence...anyway.. share your training routines..
by the way, is it possible to train without a bike computer? (no smartphone either).. oh and i commute to everywhere all the time on bike unless i have to carry something not bike transportable...
so any tips on stuff that can be get for free is welcomed, im ok with getting stuff by the side btw, torrents and stuff, just couldnt find joe friel's book.

pic unrelated but i heard /n/ likes trains.

(no cell phones allowed btw, but no one gives a fuck, you also cant buy shit and the waiting times im talking involve going early, you have to make 4 lines for all this bullshit).

Easy there tiger.

Find me 1 example of someone hating on a TT bike here. I think he meant in general.

Riding mountains is a greater form of cycling. The road legends have all earned their place in history on the hills. Sure, there are time trials in the TDF, they are important, but they just don't compare. Cycling is about mountains/hills.

Also they're similar to triathlon bikes and so they get associated with those assholes...
