Sometimes we just like to ride in big groups so people can sit in the draft and chat with each other :)

Yeah the fun thing about riding a road bike is that everyone else on 2 wheels who isn't on a road bike thinks they're in a race with you, no matter what even if your back wheel is off and you have a tube in one hand, doesn't matter they're suddenly fixated on impressing you with how fast they are (or aren't).

If you're faster than them, they get pissy because "this is not a race" and then a rambling diatribe about toxic masculinity. If you're slower than them, they post greentext stories about how they "defeated" the mean lycra jerks once and for all and that just proves that it's the engine not the bike.

Same thing happens with cages though, if you're in a cage that "looks fast" at a red light, every microdick who pulls up next to you feels they need to prove something.

Some people can't handle it and go out of their way to "look slow" but personally I like living rent free in other people's heads.

Then one block later you're at 180 bpm dying and they fly by you laughing.
>>
>>1801668
If you are roided go to the local bicycle track and test yourself against other speedy boys. You might enjoy the sport.

Yes this exact thing happens every single time.

>not averaging 180bpm for the entire ride
are you even trying?
>>
Well no shit a train like that isn't going to be sprinting at full effort at all times. That's not what road riding is.

>be road cyclist
>on a chill recovery ride with my bros, still 50 km to go

What was that all about, guys?

OP, this is a /helmet/ board, and you failed to inform us of your status.
Expect sub-par bitching.

It's not a 'recovery ride' if you're always that slow.

So does a road bike make you faster or nah? Never rode one.
>>
>>1802004
they're faster if you're a good cyclist. lighter bike and more aggressive riding position usually means better output and faster. but if you're a shit cyclist, a road bike will accentuate how shit you really are.
>>
>>1802008
What does
>good cyclist
>shit cyclist
actually mean? Like I've been riding a bike for 20+ years now, it's the same it's always been.

>We go 80+ km a day
i dont actually have five hours every day to plonk around on my bike (wish i did)

>>1802009
The narrow wheels make the ride extremely bumpy and uncomfortable. Even a tiny hole in the road and you fall off. You can only ride on very, very smooth roads. That's probably what he meant.

>>1801668
That's how it starts Fred. Let me give you a roadmap for how you're going to end up

>I should buy bibs

That is why I am begging you, anon, to elucidate the distinction. What innate qualities or skills does one require for a road bike to be a worthwhile purchase?

>be natty and fat but still more fit than the average roadie

>don't want to stay behind them all day (it's a super long road alongside a canal that goes for many kms (not killing myself but kilometers))
>pass them at a swift 40kmph
>they think I'm challenging them and they start drafting me
>oh god oh fuck

>>1802140
of course hes on gear, then again even the skinny roadies are on gear and they can still peak at like 1500w
>>
>>1802026
Have you ever ridden a road bike? Lmao
>>
>>1802265

Dont get mad at them, its just the caveman instinct that tell us to chase after other faster caveman to show who best caveman is.

I did the same a few days ago trying to chase some roadies with my mountain bike while climbing on an asphalt section to reach a trail. I felt very retarded afterwards.

Become a bike messenger. Nice bike action all day in heavy traffic. You win if you don't die.

>>1802004
Road bikes typically use road tires which means low rolling resistance and have a sporty geometry that will require you to put out some minimal wattage to be comfortable. To go sightseeing they are not optimal but they are quite efficient in letting you accumulate kilometers.
