>not biking around campus and/or town
Literally get a minor leg work out each time I leave the apartment.
College-campus-bikers are the most obnoxious and self-righteous people there is. If you've ever been to UCSB or Goleta, you have badass white girls who flew out into an intersection without even so much as to turn her goddamn bird head to check for oncoming traffic
We almost killed 3 drunk bikers, 5 ditsy female bikers who giggle at almost being killed and numerous other bikers who seem to think only they exist on the road
they're doing for attention if they look like they're gonna fall off their daddy-paid-for longboards
if they ride a pennyboard, it's ok to spit at them in disgust because noone deserving of respect would spend upwards of $100 for a tiny piece of shit plastic
plus, pennyboard-riders are often dumb whores who want to be "one of the guys" without realizing how dumb her pink pennyboard is
BECAUSE IT USES MORE LOWERBODY MUSCLES
you would have known this if you skated, but no, you've just gotta buy a $200+ bike to prove some sort of point about how much you love exercising
i commute to work by bike each day.
>26km total each day
>cycle straight to gym every 2 days for lifts
>tfw every day is cardio day
i love it /fit/. and i love the mires my legs and butt get at work
Wat? I bike in Wisconsin year round. I just wear the same gear I wear for cross country skiing. A good mask and goggles are great for temps like I had this morning at -5deg F. No such thing as temps too cold man.
If you are such a failure of human being that you can't own and operate a motor vehicle then you should just kill yourself
But I do OP.
Roadbike Masterrace reporting in. Literally lmaoing @ carcucks while passing by when they stuck in traffic.
>my bike (with blue handles)
My brother. Scattante reporting in. There was once a huge traffic jam at a corner near my uni. Cars backed up a quarter mile. Felt so damned good just zooming past all of them on the shoulder.
>in bad mood
>go to commute to uni on bike
>instantly feel amazing, like a happy kid again
There's also a lot of parking issues here, tickets everywhere, people cruising around for half an hour looking for a spot. Feels good to coast on in and lock up at a rack. No ticket worries, ever. Carfags are cucks. Keep paying the petrol and ticket jews.
>cleaned baby and gave her fresh oil yesterday
>30 F out
>labor of love
So hard to get the grit off the itty bitty bits in the gears. Even a toothbrush doesn't reach it all. What do?
>complains about no regard for rules
>wants to break the rules to seriously injure a person
You must be a great person
They don't do shit. No point.
>just walk hurr
Let me walk a mile both ways 2-3x a day, right. If I bike it takes me less than 5 minutes. If I walk it takes 3-4x that. (Includes waiting at the light, calculation autists.) Not everyone lives in a dorm you freshie. Good luck fucking bitches while your roomie watches.
If you're too fat to ride a bike you can just say so senpai
I started cycling when I was 6 or do and had to cycle 20km/day when I went to highschool. We dutchies pretty much live on our bikes. Even when its pouring, we dont give fuck and cycle with a umbrella.
If there are no major hills on your commute, seriously consider a single speed.
Has a lot less maintenance and is more efficient once you're up to speed.
It just sucks if you have hills or a lot of traffic lights and need to haul stuff.
>cycle with a umbrella.
I saw my housemate doing this and called him a faggot. He also cycles with a swaying wide kneed stance like a clown. Just wear raingear. I use that swooshy tracksuit shit. Works without looking like a faggot.
>bike retails 1600-1800
>some bitch rode 20 miles on it, seriously, in 2 years and sold it to me for 175
>was kept indoors and everything
Score one for the poorfag. I've ridden department store bikes and they don't even compare. Think my speed doubled when I switched.
>if you have hills or a lot of traffic lights
Both of these. It's also a bike for longer distance fun rides.
So many nooks and crannies to clean, though.
I'm glad that there's more cyclists on here, it's a long winter

Not everyone's a freshman, you GDI autist. It's about a mile walk from my frat house and I either hike it or have pledges drive me.
Again, only geed faggots bike.
>So many nooks and crannies to clean, though.
The easiest way is to take off the wheel, remove lockring and cassette (you need a lockring removal tool and a chainwhip to do this properly) and just clean it seperately.
If you want it to be like new, boil the cassette in a pot with water and detergent, then dump the water and put the pot back on the stove with only the cassette in it until it's completely dry inside and out, then re-lube.
Yes, some people are actually autistic enough to care this much.
>mountain biking is the same as road biking
That's impressive. That might become a quarterly or biannual thing but like hell I'm doing that every month. Wow. Still might be fulfilling to get it all shiny and new looking, though.
You're the one at the helm of the two ton, carbon emitting lazymobile; burden is on you to not kill me.
