Most of the time the tightest tires can be mounted by hand if you push the beads to the center of the rim all the way round the tire.

Bead jack is pretty slick. Pulls bead straight up instead of out and up like a tire lever does.

my hands are very strong from death grip during masturbation

>>1100364
it was awesome to see how easy it was. using tire levers to mount a tire looks dangerous as fuck. this thing just effortlessly lifted the bead up onto the rim

for the price of labor bike shop charges to change a flat you get this thing (literally paid $12 on amazon)

Hey /g/

Automobile homicides in Charlottesville, Paris, London, etc; Solution:

Security posts installed far from any pedestrian/cycle/skate traffic, keeping all autos from coming anywhere near people.

Entire downtown areas could be free of traffic. Force people to use transportatio/n/

There are solutions for handicapped, delivery vehicles, etc. it can be done!

Find wheelbuilder in your area and have them build you a wheelset to your specifications. You'll get exaclty what you want and you'll get a better quality build with local support. Many wheelbuilders will even true them up for you later for free.
>>
>>1099992
Yeah good luck getting hand built custom wheels for $80
>>
>>1099998
It's worth paying extra to not only get what you want but get it handbuilt by someone who's good at it, you get a better quality wheel. Or did you think that the ones you buy online are all handbuilt, too? They're not, much of it is automated.

Why are ships travelling in risky waters even built to let hijackers easy access onboard by providing LADDERS?

I had a rope ladder to my treehouse when I was five years older. I pulled it up when I didn't want anyone to enter. Five year old me was literally smarter than every naval engineer in the world.

they're heavy but actually pretty strong and nice, you can use them for touring but I don't because it feels too hipster

if you plan on just making money from hipsters (i would), isnt buyting bamboo a better option? like ork yourway with a bamboo supplier and stuff.. growing it could slow and time demanding (not sure)...sounds as an interesting business.. just add up costs of shit and see if its profitable .

I ride occasionally. It's fun. Not even remotely practical, but fun.

My first was a 20" $40 no-name from Amazon. My second was a 26" Torker. I recommend getting the cheap one in case you don't actually like unicycling.

Wasn't sure where to ask, but does anyone have any recommendations on a knee brace? Specifically for cycling. My knees were shot before I ever cycled regularly and sometimes they're sore after a long ride.

Guess I should mention that a lot of them I've tried have bunched up behind the knees or slipped as I ride and start to sweat
>>
Have you ever had a proper bike fit done ?
>>
>>1099448
Started off with the seat relatively low because of previous knee injuries. The aches got better so over the last couple of years I've brought it up to a proper height to get full extension on my legs and then I just played with handlebar orientation from there.
But no, in answer to your question.

Guys am i the first to notice how close the Boeing 767 and MD-11 look alike? I mean obviously apart from the third engine and the 4th landing gear. The engines have relatively the same size and the front of the plane have almost the same design. Can i get a Nobel Price for discovering something like this?

This is the worst thread ive ever seen.. a bunch of airplanes are really similar cause the manufacturers copy eachother. I posted something similar about the suhkoi superjet and bombardier c series but i posted it in the thread already about airplanes instead of making my own thread like you did.

I have 2.1" kenda small block 8s on a 29er hardtail. I want a more stable, safe grippy tire for dusty dry hardpacked SoCal trails. Im nkt sure whether to try narrower or wider. Ive heard narrow is faster, but Ive also heard wider is faster. I just want safe stable predictable tire. Currently ride around 28 to 30 psi.

Also, would it be okay to go a little wider tire in the rear since I have a hardtail? To provide more plush

https://janheine.wordpress.com/2015/01/26/the-tire-pressure-revolution/

The inner width of your rims is one limiting factor. If you want fat tires and low pressure (you do), there is a point where your rims will be too narrow to use them properly. They will be "light bulb" shaped and squirm in the rear, also causes flats

I've only ridden socal once since moving here. Black Rock on 43c. It was raining so my narrow-ass CX tires cut through the mud while everyone on the 27.5+ tires was struggling. but outside of that I'd go as fat and low pressure as possible if you're not doing technical riding
