in the UK there's so many places where there's a "Cyclists dismount" sign, like for a crossing or where the bike path is close to pedestrian paths. it's so ridiculous, they design everything for old grandmas on dutch bikes because they want to make the infrastructure accessible for everyone (which is obviously a good thing, the more people on bikes and not in cars the better) but forget that if you make the cycling routes constantly stop-start and full of barriers and stops and crossings then less people will cycle because they think it's too much of a hassle.

Copenhagen does it right, separated bike lanes with separate traffic lights and generally you can cross the city centre without stopping more than two or three times. All while separated from pedestrians and vehicles.

The clouds part and the scratchy distorted voice of the god of /n/ reveals Himself to you. You have thirty seconds to choose an /n/ waifu:

1. Emma: 10/10 body, face aged beyond her years due to excessive sun exposure. She'll be bored riding with you because you're slow and weak, so you can still ride alone like always.

2.Vicki: 10/10 face, bit too tall but she has a flat chest which makes up for a lot. She's not confident riding in traffic but she'll out-autist you any day when it comes to trains.

3.Shaima: 10/10 modest and pure Arab dream girl, will not get on a bike because she's a cager extremist, but then again you wanted to ride alone didn't you? Also comes with unbeatable pass travel perks.

NOW YOU MUST CHOOSE, no takebacks you will share a bed until one of you dies.

That's where you've fucked up. Instead of comparing her height in videos with physical objects that have clear specifications as to how large and tall they are (i.e. comparing Vicky's height with that of a 2009 Victoria Line stock tube train), you're comparing it to a carefully edited thumbnail designed with aesthetics first and foremost.

I was looking up pictures of Chessie switchers to see what they looked like (I remember road units coming through town in the 80s) and found out they had a shop switcher in West Virginia that was battery powered. It was built in 1917 by GE and is preserved at the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, although it is apparently not on display.

You have to choose between owning solely a motorcycle or a bicycle for the rest of your life. You can't have one with the other. You can select any type of motorcycle/bicycle.

Which do you chose?

this is adult with means talk here anon

so is a good e-bike

and if you're an adult with means then you should have a license.
>>
>>1494331
The maximum power output for e-bikes classified as low-speed electric vehicles (and therefore not subject to motor vehicle laws) is 750w in 26 states. Technically, e-bikes sold in these 26 states which are more powerful than 750w are restricted to off-road only use, although there's no practical enforcement if you aren't riding at 50mph. Most of the rest of the other states classify e-bikes as motor vehicles subject to normal registration laws.

So yeah, while you can technically ride e-bikes without a license, under the majority of US state laws, there's a maximum power output which is still about half that of a 50cc engine. I'd imagine that enforcement will get more severe as more people discover how hard it is to distinguish "non motor vehicle" e-bikes from the monsters that have the power to basically work like motorcycles. For now, e-bikes still have limited range and the massively powerful models are still like 10 grand.
>>
All the meming about replacing small motorbikes aside I feel the average commuter would be happier with a pedal assist ebike that came with minimal bullshit than they would be with a 50cc moped

A pedal assist bike that gives you back the same or half again the power you put in up to say 300 watts total (you + the motor) would be basically GOAT, not really capable of going much faster than a fit cyclist on a road bike on the flat, but destroying hills and allowing you to keep pace with traffic while weighed down with groceries

Issue at the minute is that the good stuff is still expensive and the cheap stuff works but has a massive jank factor, there needs to be an entry level model stripped down to the essentials so there's a pattern to follow for manufacturers and an ebike with public cool appeal, even if that means a small motor and low power output, like a Honda Cub for ebikes.

>I bet the chain wears really fast compared to the old system. 8 speed chains last ages. 1X is a con to get people to consume bike parts at a faster rate.

new chains, in fact, last a longer than the old stuff. Way better metalurgy/coatings/etc. Also 1x chainrings with fat steel teeth are IMMORTAL compared to old triples.

the old square taper cartridge BBs were objectively better, tho. I still have a genuine BB-UN91 that'll spin for DAYS

Also, as a longtime 3x9 holdout: 1x is genuinely more fun on a mountain bike. I was shocked at how much mental energy I'd been spending thinking about the state of my drivetrain and how much more I could just relax and enjoy the terrain.

I have 3 taint relievers and 3 non-tainters and they're all mostly samey to me if I'm wearing bibs with decent pads, tho if I had to pick one to standardize around it would be the shimano pro stealth, because after 75 miles or so it's definitely the best one, beating out the berthoud and terry fly. If I'm in jeans or normal shorts the taint relievers provide some extra ventilation for my gooch which is nice

How do I correctly set up the length of maillard aero pedal toe cages? They have an adjustable cage length but most toe clip pedals are fixed. I already know how to thread the strap but these are weird.

Also how should I take care of the leather straps (mine are white christophe)? Or should I just swap them to nylon ones and sell them?

And any tips for use?
>>
>>1494314
Place ball of foot on pedal in your normal riding position that you're comfortable with, and adjust cage accordingly. I don't see the problem?

i find that 2/3rd of poles are too fat for that method to work.

im thinking of putting 1.5in bmx pegs over my axle nuts so you would need a ratchet and extension to get my wheels off.
>>
>>1493508
axle nuts are the worst because every crackhead can find an adjustable wrench. QR hubs with either hex bolt ends or pitlock skewers are better. rubber cementing a ball bearing inside the hex bolt will help, since they'll have to find something pointy to dig it out with, or might think it's epoxied or just be confused. either way the goal is to make it a huge hassle to steal the bike, remove parts, or resell it. beat up components, sticker, dirt, odd colors, distinct unique build = very unlikely to be their first choice of bike to steal. to sell they'd have to clean it, part it out, and by then it's not worth their time. just have to watch out for punk kids who just need a new wheel, bars, etc. they will take bits off with the proper tools

This is also just a me-thing, but there’s seemingly always one guy who had never ride a train before. They usually fall on their asses but that’s funny so I’m not complaining.

Finally after two weeks of looking and thanks to an earlier thread being pointed out a fitness hybride would fit me more. I ordered and will receive my Giant Fastroad 3 SL in two weeks.

Any opinions on this Bike? Is there something like the DualTrap S that exists on this bike like Trek does with the FX3? Is it a good bike for long rides and losing weight getting fit?

more like /n/ hates anything that isn't a 59 pound rust bucket with a slot for stowing your flowing tulip-print dress and a hammock dangling from the bars that are higher than your chin, from which your dog is supposed to dangle with a wheel of aged gouda in each paw. also it needs to be $40,000 for no fucking reason at all, and be made out of the finest pre-ww1 gaspipe steel by a pink faced white guy in sheffield england wearing a MAGA hat and vintage 140 year old Levi's overalls once worn by a real cowboy. also the wheels can't be attached to the frame using anything more secure than a zip tie, and in order to access the drivetrain you should need a 6000 watt laser and a hydraulic jackhammer. also the tires should have come off a city bus, preferably a bus in a whites-only neighborhood, because the slightest crack in the pavement is literally going to make your bike detonate like it's made out of dynamite. while pedaling it needs to make shrieking noises like the F train going over the williamsburg bridge because lubing your chain is for LANCE ARMSTRONG RACERS, and also if there are brakes they need to be activated by pedaling forwards. to make the bike move you just don't pedal at all, instead you push on the bars while walking and straddling the bike. that's because YOU DON'T NEED THAT and besides what's the rush? why do you always need to know how fast you're going?
