Is there a term for these quarantine cyclists, /n/? They're like freds way worse and way more aggravating.
>cycling is MY sport!! No one else can have it!!
>>1495760I welcome more people to my conveniently combined transportation/fitness/fun, as long as they learn some respect. Don't be a dick, don't spit. just basic stuff.The problem is the EVERYONE SHOULD BE WELCOMING unracer crowd will shout down anyone who expects a modicum of basic manners, telling someone that a certain behavior is unacceptable, dangerous, unsanitary, or discourteous is considered "elitism".So the bad habits perpetuate themselves.
>>1495762you're salty as fuck dudei have a 2 stroke motor on my bike and i pulled the baffleim an all around fuck head on bike paths and everyone seethes
>>1497570Dennis the Menace is that you
>>1497570kinda hope you get done in on that fucking thing 2bh pal
I've stayed cycling due to the quarantine. Pretty enjoyable TBPH.
>we need more people cycling>normies ride bikes around like they behave in all other things they aren't really invested in>no wait not like that I mean everyone should share my hobby in an autistic manner because my worldview is the only correct on1!
>>1495757Aside from some supply issues they've created and some minor inconveniences on trails (but admittedly gives a little confidence boost passing people), these newbie guys have kept the baiku industry afloat these last few months while china/taiwan factories have been closed and shipping went to shit. Their eventual mechanical idiocy will keep local service shops in healthy business for quite some time, or give Park Tool a boost with all the new DIY-ers.Hoping increased demand only helps the industry long-term. More bikes sold at a higher margin means more $$ for development, production and innovation.Glad to see some of my friends getting into it as a way to spend time together and have fun. I think it'll be like the 10sp boom in the 70s except with more mountain bikes. Just gotta wait for the supply base to build back up for those 21MY bikes... All the shops are completely empty and I wanted a new MTB this year...
All the cagers are back on the road now since the lockdown is pretty much dead now where I am no matter how much Facebook boomers whine
>>1498929try some of these next time:. , ;
>>1497570lmao same. tomorrow i'm going seal my gaskets with some rtv and fuck around with the intake on the carb trynna get them speed gains.
>>1497570you'll surely find valhalla soon on that thing
>>1495757All these cyclists want everyone to be riding bikes everywhere and commuting on them until there’s a traffic jam on the MUP
>>1503722Not me. Fuck them. I want them to go back to REEEEing about getting "almost hit" because they stepped into a bike lane with their eyes glued to their phone.
>>1503710people have been putting Whizzers on bikes since the 1920s. Its a common first gearhead project as it teaches you the importance of delicately and correctly mounting an engine.
>>1503722>Pass a newbie cyclist in a drop bar grabel/road bike riding on the MUP with me on the road to his left>"Ride in the Road, brother you have nothing to lose but your chains">go riding the next day>he's in the road, taking the right 1/3rd of the landMy nigga
>>1506366Why are those freds wearing the spande and lycra? This is NOT a race!
Future used bike salesmen. Seriously the used bike market is going to be flooded once people go back to their cars and jobs.
