Regretting i bought a trek.
>if you buy a trek, you might find yourself rekt
Maybe you need to bend the knee more.
>not wanting the seat as high as manageable for muh aero and range of motion
>not feeling confident/safe in a non-carbon bike
>not getting a used 1990's hard tail trek with knobbies
>".. my knee is only slightly bent"
This is your problem right here...
>he removes the reflectors on his bike
It's like you don't care about safetey
>remove shitty plastic pieces that do nothing and ruin aesthetics
>add on a quality light if you ride in anything other than the daylight
Reflectors and dork discs come off ASAP on a new or new to me bike.
hey guys, new cycler here have some questions, hope you don't mind;
considering buying pic related for commuting in Istanbul, gonna be using it for medium distance, 3 km to work and 3km back 6 km every day. Shit roads mostly, is pic related ok for me?
I'm 1.90 and 90kgs, pic related i believe is 23inches frame, (59cm here), did some research and i think its okay.
so anyway, as i said im new, i kinda know the bike is low class, reason being my low budget, any ideas are appreciated. thanks.
Blue and silver looks good. I would buy that, yes. Then after riding it for a month or so, see if you want to change the saddle. Or maybe the handlebars. Wear the back tires until its bald, rotate the front to back, and get a Schawlbe Big Apple
Using pic related, Giro Trinity, is cheap but not very comfortable.
What helmets do you use if any? How comfortable are they?
what do they do with airplane wreckage once the investigation is over?
do they stick it in some warehouse for all of eternity or do they just dump it?
>do they stick it in some warehouse for all of eternity or do they just dump it?
They have to stick it in a warehouse to hide the fact that jet engines don't exist
The entire air industry is part of the conspiracy to hide the fact that the earth is flat
When you board a plane, it goes into a tunnel under the earth to take you to your destination
Looking out the window, you just see a giant tv screen that makes it look like you're flying over a curved earth
>trackfags on the road
>vehicles typically go faster, kill people, rarely face charges
At least he didn't take a plea in this politically motivated bullshit, like that guy in SF. The average pedestrian has less sense than animals when it comes to crossing the road.
What would he say if he was reading /n/ right now?
Electric freight thread. Share your rare freights running under the wire
Melbourne's L clas loco used to do freight how ever i think they took more suburban passenger trains than freight. they were in sevice between 1953 to 1987
BC Rail: GF6C's that ran on the Tumbler Ridge branchline They never should have scrapped them.
The MILW also had some electrics that were interesting.
YOUR FIXIE GETS ZERO FIXIE POINTS
I actually like his videos especially that series.
What went wrong? Automobile competition? Demographic shifts? Apathy?
How do you feel about the fact that Seoul's new Ui line subway will open in a couple months?
It will be Seoul's first completely new subway line (not an extension of an existing line) since 2011.
Pump up your tires
I have recently started to daily ride to work, so far it has been a blast, but I got an issue I can not fogure out on my own
I ride a cheap bike that was just around at home, and in the last few days my rear brake became slippery (V barke)
It feels like I only got 15-20% brake power on my rear wheel, which is not good and no matter how thight I get the cable, it does not really improve
I can not get that wheel to lock up, even if I lean forward. The braking feels like it does not have that bite when I pull the lever.
I have two suspects
1) The rim got slippery from some gunk/oil (I have tried to clean it tho)
2) The brake pads does not seem to be worn out but they are old and were unused for years, maybe it aged and could not handle the daily use
It only has to last until the end of month, will get a proper bike then
