Don't really understand mopeds but if they come in 125cc then suggestions are welcome too.

Gonna be for general, non-special usage. A bit of dirt road once a while, a semi-long trip once in a while. Most of the time, driving around urban hoods and enjoying some uphills.

Probably gonna need a storage box or something added to it.

You'll know the pros and cons. Which should I go for? Budget limited to 125cc quality or 200cc cheap brand.

I am very stressed out bros. I'm sitting here watching an extremely volitale stock market, rising gas prices, and inflation. Not to mention all the failures going on within the airline industry. A major recession is on its way. I am very worried. Just like many of you, I spent close to $100k of my own money on flight training, spent 3 years as a CFI because Covid had me laid off from work for almost a year. I am finally at a regional, but now there are high chances I'll get laid off again because I am junior.

This is not cool.

If you want to wear a military helmet, you've clearly never had to wear a military helmet.
I'll take a bicycle helmet, motorcycle helmet, industrial hard hat, or the rind from a watermelon on my head before I opt to wear another ACH.
>>
Never worn one, never seen the need, I see little kids oing jumps and wheelies in the woods in the evenings and they don#'t wear them either, the only people I ever see on bikes wearing helmets are weak looking men and anxious looking women, usually old.
>>
>>1801249
Everyone knows falling off a bike is less dangerous or likely than coming off a board. people who wear helmets while cycling are purely doing it to signal to other homosexuals, people telling you are in danger are aware that wearing a skating helmet indicates you're into bug chasing.
>>
>>1801311
>Falling off a bike is less dangerous or likely than coming of a board
Nigga what? You are going much slower when skating, you are closer to the ground, you can easily recover from falls. Sure you fall more often but it's absolutely less dangerous than falling of a bicycle
>>
>>1801249
I don't think your commentator is right.
If you're inclined to wear a helmet, real reason to pick a bike one vs a skate one is ventilation.
Riding for 3-6 hours straight is a thing. The shortest break is a stoplight ('piss breaks' don't require you to stop riding). Skating for 3-6 hours, with nothing longer than a 30 second break? I've never seen it.
Not poking fun at skaters, just saying the helmets are different because the each activity has its own pace.

was such a gorgeous day for riding. trying to keep my spirits up today.. i have (had?) a vintage 700c peugeot grand touring tandem. today i let my sister and her boyfriend take it for a spin, and of course they "ran into a curb"
100% my fault for letting them take it out, but now its totally fucked. the top tube is humped and the bottom tube straight up sheared into an ugly grimace, the whole front end is toast. im a poorfag so my worldis kind of rocked and im doing my best to cope. advice welcomed

Is this bike worth fixing up? It seems to fit me and I like the retro looking frame.
I already dumped $70 to put on new tires and tubes, just to realize it feels like total crap and I will need to replace way more.
Rear wheel has some internal 3 speed thing going on. Whitle drivetrain feels like junk. Idk if I can fit an external cassette in the rear fork if I start replacing stuff.
Would definitely do different handle bars.
I like projects but I'm a noob to bikes and I don't want to waste my money on shit when I could just go buy a functional bike.
>>
>>1801256
it's a pretty low end bike, I wouldn't bother beyond making it functional.

Are high end bike locks worth it? Cable ones can be cut through like it's butter and chains although stronger are far too heavy.
I bought a cheap one but the key housing is fucking plastic ffs, what lock is a good compromise?

We had some bike thieves come into my town years ago. They didn't even bother picking/cutting locks, they just took an angle grinder to the whole bike rack, loaded it up with all the bikes attached to it into their flatbed and drove off. They stole hundreds of bikes in 2 days and then they just vanished, lol. All the bikes got parted and put into circulation into eastern europe. They got my dad's bike like that. If someone seriously wants YOUR bike and you aren't there, you can't really do shit. Your best bet is to mitigate in case of a loss, and make your bike look less appealing than those around it. Another time my friend got his bike stolen at a train station so he started using big ass tempered steel chains with the kind of padlock store owners put on metal shutters, so they just vandalized his bike out of spite, now he only leaves unattended a shitty Facebook marketplace place bike he fixed up.

For me, it's Altor SAF

>>1800601
I use a similar version that's just a 5mm Allen key. So I can get help if I forgot my tools/key.

Security wise, its good enough. Not going to stop a dedicated bike thief, nothing really will. But will stop quick garb and dash which is most of the theft here, opportunistic thefts.

If you can keep your bike in sight, high traffic area, or next to you. And next to a nicer bike with a worse lock than yours.
>>
>>1801104
You probably shouldn't be leaving a $4500 bike anywhere unattended anyway, so that works out fine.

Around here you can operate non-accessible vehicles if there's a faster alternative available for the disabled.

>>1801258
They used to allow one number 15 with a NB4L and one 15u with an old RM. TfL first said it cost too much to run, which was bollocks, then they pulled the spastics card, then they pulled the environment card... Theyre just trying to pander to everyone and everything. Its shite. Never got to drive an RM and probably never will. Theyre parked in our garage all polished but havent moved in 3 years.

You owe everything to this man regarding bicycle design of the last 30 years and yet you don't even know his name. He also believes that 140mm cranks are the optimal length for the average person in terms of power output(!).

His opinion is not to be taken lightly.

His believe in 140mm cranks are not new either, he has held that opinion since atleast 2007.
>>
Shorter cranks would allow allow a lower BB height in bicycle design for better aerodynamics, plus improve safety because the height of the bicycle is reduced.
