So I want to get to my Uni by bicycling on a dedicated bike trail I have near my house (no cars) but I'm horrible at biking because I had brain surgery and lost my balance. Is there a guide out there on like learning how to bicycle and what is a good height to have or position with the handlebar? Thanks in advance. I also put this on fitness

I'd be more concerned about the height of the saddle; since you're learning, put the saddle at a height where you can comfortably (leg nearly fully extended) place your feet flat on the floor.

You'll be able to retrain your brain to ride a bike again.
There's no real 'guide' to learning how to ride, since it's basically keep trying until you get it. I recommend learning somewhere soft so when you fall over (and you will fall over) it's not so bad.
Practice over and over again.
>>
>>1102328
Find a small hill, like a 1% inclination or less, and try maintaining your equilibrium. Do as >>1102573
said and lower your saddle so that you can stop with your foot. There's no good position nor height for the handlebar, it depend on your flexibility. You can go to a lbs after you mastered the way of the bike to get a pro fit.

Why is this better than a full clover?

>>1101374
It's almost entirely at grade so it's much less expensive. Also full clover is not necessary for arterial road exits only for other freeway connections

Hey /n/, what's the best interchange to manage traffic? Not having traffic lights would be great!

Motorists are fucking stupid and anything less than lights is too much for the average driver.
Something that might be the best on paper quickly devolves into crashes.

Did you design that? Looks like it has no real geometry specs and is just designed to look "cool"

Hey y'all again.

I'm starting a new thread about y'all what newbuild steam locomotives which are all but extinct would all of y'all /n/iggers like to see.

>1088280 old thread is very much close to 404ing.

I'd like to see a newbuild Hawthorn Leslie 2-4-0 like Northiam here.

Surely new build should concentrate on locos types that never made it into preservation? Hawthornes exist.

>>1097652
You could build some obscure something-or-other if you have cash burning a hole in your pocket.
You could also re-engineer a classic.

Because every time you use your brakes and then re-accelerate you are doing something which will make you stronger and faster in the long-term.

Because if a tree falls in the forest with nobody around to hear it, it still makes a sound.

Right?

Yo /n/iggas, what kind of extinct steam locomotive would y'all like to be seen built today?

Mine is the GWR County Tank here.

That's what it is. So what?

Hi I just currently bought a vintage road bike 5spd 27" wheels, L-frame with 27" 1-1/4 tire. I've been excited to make some minor tweaks and upgrades starting with the rims and tires. Planning to change the 27" 1 -1/4 tires with hybrid ones so the rim has to changed too and thinking about getting a 700c by 35 comes with a 7spd cog, dont have any idea with tire sizes would this fit with my vintage road bike?

32c definitely, 35c maybe. You may have to change the brakes to reach the lower braking surface of the 700c wheels also.
