So, which one of you sexist pigs has been sending strongly worded emails to CyclingTips about women’s cycling?

Even though their courses are smaller and their average speeds are slower does not mean that they are less entertaining to watch than men’s cycling.

What do you have to say for yourselves, incels?

It’s 2020 get over it.

Buy Bike General (last thread is dead)

2018 foil 20 vs 2020 supersix
both used, foil is ultegra and 7.5kg(16.5lbs) , supersix is 105 and 8.3kg (18.3lbs).

supersix looks nicer in real life tha in pics- so its basically a newer heavier worse groupset (but i believe better frame design, this is just a hunch due to several testimonies ive heard), vs an older beter groupset bike.

what should i do? foil is a bit more than the supersix, but not by far.

there's nothing wrong with 29ers, the only thing that could be an issue if the bike is too good so that your trails don't feel challenging enough

>it would probably be rage inducing.

It really is. I started out as a BN fan and found the Milwaukee because of #261 in Minneapolis. MILW was noteworthy for a lot of traits, perhaps most important being it was the first major US railroad to institute streamlined passenger service out of Chicago.

The sad fact is MILW died because of greed and crookedness, and while the super-merger that created Burlington Northern caused many waves, BN, even being stiff competition, didn't kill Milwaukee. Its own leadership did through incompetence, laziness and monetary schemes.

I really fuckin wish it had survived. Seems like if a few things had gone differently, it probably would have. Many US roads were looking at MILW to be the backbone of a competition conglomerate against BN, and the inept leadership refused it at every opportunity.

you can tighten your turning radius with skills but don't expect too much, you shouldn't need to make u-turns if you behave like a car/motorcycle in traffic, if you need to turn on a narrow bike path you should first slow down and run off to the side so you get as much room as you can, and coast with your outer foot in the 6 o'clock position for stability and so you don't hit your front wheel with your foot (especially smaller frames tend to have more toe overlap), but there will be a minimum turning radius because of your bike's geometry

to corner at speed you should countersteer to initiate a lean into the turn. this means steering in the opposite direction that you would expect so you push the handlebar away from you on the side you want to turn toward. and keep your outer foot in the 6 o'clock position during the turn to improve your center of gravity and to avoid pedal strike.

you shouldn't encounter a lot of curbs if you ride on the road. when you do, take them head on and slow down and lift your ass so that your limbs act as suspension so that the bike won't feel the impact as much between your ass and the curb

There is no reason why this 'advice' would translate from mountain bike riding with berms (like in pic above) to road or street riding.
Well, unless you use curbs or walls as berms.

Honestly if you are using anything other than Tacx Devas how can you justify this? I have bottle cages that cost 5-6x more than this thing and I see no reason other than bling. Especially since the expensive ones are made in USA and you never know these days. Not to get too political but I'd rather not risk supporting that crowd if you know what I mean (I am sure you do so let's just leave it at that)

>roastie fucking cunt waves back at me and keeps driving
Why are woman bus drivers always such cunts? It's always the female ones that are sticklers to the rules and who seem to get smug pleasure from it, while I always see male bus drivers letting people slide on fare or taking time to help passengers out. Is it because the female is unaccustomed to authority and assumes she has to be an unquestionable dictator to assert respect, while the male knows it's earned? This isn't the first time I've noticed it, just a time that fucked me over personally.

OP here again, this just makes it worse in my opinion. Buses are never on time and expect people to wait ten or more minutes for them, but this hystrionic vagina couldn't stop five seconds to let someone jump on, when I've seen male drivers do this almost every other ride, and those five seconds are lost in the wash of good or bad traffic and lights anyway. I'm not even writing this so much because I'm butthurt about my own experience (though I am), but that this is a pattern I've noticed in general with female drivers being unsympathetic hardasses compared to men, and I was wondering if anyone else had noticed the same trend.
>>
>>1440813
I'm a McDick wagecuck who sees women of every walk of life, and I definitely think this is the case. But I think it's more common in female teachers, because that field is dominated by females. This makes the more hideous aspects of female relationships be enhanced, and they always seems too preoccupied to pay attention if their order is right or their coupon won't work because they're too lazy to ready 2 sentences. Anywho, hate women, currently an incel, yes. But, not for lack of trying, in the past year I've been ghosted by 5 girls that I had started going out with.

It made sense at the time, sure, lower costs, but broad gauge is superior, and enables higher speeds, while encouraging broader, safer rights of way.

What gauge is the Queensland Rail tilt train, just as fast as the XPT or Vlocity? 1067 mm

>encouraging broader, safer rights of way
false equivalence between structure gauge and track gauge. Broader track gauge may encourage broader structure gauge but US standad gauge is some of the broadest in the world nevertheless.

This thread is nothing but broad gauge propaganda.
