when you train semi early in the morning (8, 9am), what do you eat and how much earlier before you hop on the bike? do you take a shower before riding? i dont.

On weekdays I train indoors on the kickr at 5 am. I don't have time to eat a meal early enough to reap its benefit for the workout, so I focus on getting my nutrition the night before. (No, 8 hours of sleep isn't going to void the carbs you put into your body.) I usually have a bowl of oatmeal and that will get me through a 1.5 hour TrainerRoad workout

About the last 6 weeks, because it's been regularly over 100 degrees out in the late afternoon/early evening, I've been getting up at 4:00am, out on the bike usually by 5:30am. I might make myself a coffee, maybe just an energy drink, and maybe some toast. You don't really want to eat anything too heavy before heading out for a potentially hard ride. I'll eat some actual breakfast after I get back, get cleaned up, and before heading in to work for the day.

I am a designer and engineer at the company that makes a concept called AeroTrax....

It's an elevated Bike Tram that features an columnar support system to suspend the rails over streets, or in some cases attached to the sides of bridges and retaining walls.

It's a fairly inexpensive system at about 500K per mile of track if erected the right way, and makes an impressive transportation effort to move a mass of cyclist-oriented commuters over long distances with a relatively symbiotic mode of operation, similar to a seated exercise chair, but much more advanced.

Each individual can mount a bike to the rear of the pod, and being enclosed, an aerodynamic can maintain a faster pace of travel for the average person, that is relative to bike racing speeds.

We are hoping to make NYC the first project, and have interests from larger companies that are moving to innovate their lines of commerce, and assist the masses in their needs of providing safe commuting systems.

Hello cycle men.

I'm in need of some advice and I'd really appreciate any help.

I'm about to start mountain biking as I've always wanted to start with a couple of friends and I now have a decent car with a roof rack that I can use to transport it to various trails.

While looking for a bike, a person I've recently become friends with offered me his Ghost AMR Lector 7700 with a few bits and pieces, originally for £500 - 600 but he's now saying he'd take £300 as he's desperate for cash due to his shit financial decisions.
It has a few issues, he reckons it needs a front and rear cassette (he reckons shimano xtr or xt), a chain, and I'm concerned there might be more issues but the bike was listed online for upwards of £3000 when it was new so I'm wondering if it's a good deal.

I only took pictures for the name and the serial number but I have some of the rims too that I'll post. Kinda kicking myself for not getting more but this is all I've got.

Should I buy it?

That's very cheap. I'd be concerned that a guy that's presumably quite into mountain biking and knows how much it's worth is selling it for so little, I would say it's either fucked or stolen.

Looking at the first photo that's a pretty nasty scrape on the top tube, not a good sign with a carbon frame as it's probably been treated rough so you really need to know what you're doing when you check the bike over. If you have any other closer friends that know about mountain bikes that can have a look at it or the guy will let you take it to a bike shop to get looked at then do that, otherwise you'll probably want to steer clear unless £300 is fuck all to you and you don't mind spending potentially the same if not more.

Stop at Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story (2014) is a good documentary that exposes what Fred wannabe idiots still don't wanna know: you cannot compete as a pro or even the highest amateur categories successfully without doping. There was in particular one scene where they pointed out what should have been obvious, Lance never showed signs of the great fatigue and pain he should have shown if he was subjected to normal human limitations. Also they took about how they sold team bikes to get off the books cash for performance enhancers. Floyd Landis was pissed that he had to ride crappier bikes because they sold those Trek team bikes.

Hi /n/ I have a practical question to ask.

I run and recently start a marine/reef aquarium service/installation business, and I have 3 employees now and I've divided out my clients from suburban which we have to drive to, to metro accessible city clients. Right now I offer unlimited ride metro cards to my employees but I wan't give them the leg up and offer the option of using a bike as well.

So I'm looking for a folding bike (the city I live in allows bikes on the train/racks on buses but not during weekday rush hour) that's light, utilitarian, robust and has some sort of cargo carrier with it.

This would be a great help since some clients are near but closer in bike range to a metro stop.

If I made an order, I would probably be 10 bikes since I'm going to do it on wholesale and assemble them if necessary.
The other option is using the bikeshare program in my city.

/n/igga please, a course fork with FUCKING HUGE mudguards holes ?

That's a "randonneuse" fork, with hardened "mudguards" holes because they are also purposed to serve for luggage carrier, or maybe a "porteur" bike
Considering ornaments at the top I won't be surprised it was made by Vitus

DART owns.

They're going to expand it into a legit subway system (right now Cityplace is the only underground station).
>>
>>1087363
Pretty great rail system, bus system needs improvement but at least they're working on it. Historically, their main strength has been expansion, but while there are upcoming projects that need to happen, they need to get better at actually running it.

For anyone who is actually in DFW, which D2 alignment do you prefer? Commerce Street seems to me the best option, close enough to the current line for convenience but far enough to not be too redundant.
