I can hit about 40 mph with a 53x11 on the flats with my road bike. I can hold this for a few miles before I burn out. I always end up running out of gearing with a 46t when in route to the trails.. I understand you think you are some eilte rider that 'knows' everything about biking but I think you are just weak as fuck.

Take a piece of rust. Squish it between your fingers. Take a piece of steel, squish it between your fingers. Then come back and ask us again.

take a piece of steel and squish it between your fingers. Now take a piece of steel with surface rust and squish it again. Come back and report results.
It's fine OP, steel is durable. If you don't drive through the sea on a daily basis it will last you a decade in that condition

What kind of rear view mirror is the best? Handle bar, helmet, or wrist? I recently bought the handle bar type for my new touring bike, but I don't like the position of it on my drop handle bars. I might try a helmet one nest. What type do you use and why?

I used to use a wet lube, but it gums everything up pretty hard. I'm now using a teflon dry lube and it seems to be working out.

I also saw a ceramic lube in the store...what do you guys use and whats the advantages of each?

Chain lube is basically just grease mixed with a volatile carrier that allows the lubricant to penetrate the chainlinks - wet formulations have more grease, making them thicker and more resistant to water, but they tend to trap more dirt, while dry lubes generally do a better job reducing friction at the expense of being quicker to wash away when you ride in the rain or through a puddle. Ceramic, teflon, and liquid wax* lubes contain tiny particles that improve a formula's lubricity, moisture resistance, and service life, without making the chain sticky and vulnerable to...

>Finish Line teflon
That's exactly what I use.

What about the ceramic stuff?
>>
>>971691
I use the Finish Line Wet (Teflon) and it works very well, just needs more regular cleaning because it does tend to get built up if you're not careful. The reviews of the Ceramic version say it works well, only drawback is that it blackens your chain and the rest of the drivetrain.

What is your preferred method of long distance (trans-continental) travel?

Personally, I prefer to take a train if I can, even though Amtrak sucks dicks in the US. I don't really like driving on the highways except in some very particular parts of the country, and I fucking hate going through airport security. Greyhound is actually an even shittier company than Amtrak, somehow, and the bus is always 1/3 rapists and thieves. Mega looks promising but they don't have a great service area. If you can get where you're going on the train in a day and a half,...

Do you see any potential market value for such products /n/? These could offer flight to much more people. You could fly 10 meters high from the ground to your destination, or 50, whatever you like, on a non windy day, even through cities and above roads
