How come biplanes, with their wings mounted so far forward, aren't aerodynamically unstable?

Fucking dogs /n/. Today it happened again, I was riding through a relatively empty area, rode past a random dog that for some reason was just hanging out in the street alone and it started following me. At first it seemed it was just curious, then I sped up and the fucker switched into hunting mode because appearently I had just reached prey-speed or some shit. He kept chasing me and started barking like crazy and jumping at my legs, I panicked and started fucking mashing it but holy SHIT are those assholes fast. I was sprinting at a good 30mph and he had no trouble keeping up. Lucky for me he got bored or something and gave up after a while but I thought he was going to eat me. How are you supposed to handle these beasts when on a bike? This is not the first time it happend and it scares the shit out of me every time.

Looking for some encouragement. Not a regular on this board, but I am an avid cyclist. I was t-boned about a month ago. Road rash everywhere, broken knee. Can't walk for another few weeks. GF left me 5 days after the accident. Plz share feels and encouragement. I want to ride again, but am currently feeling extremely apprehensive and depressed (some of it is understandable, I know). Tips for getting back on the saddle. Pic related
Hey guys, I don't really... 20 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey guys, I don't really post on /n/, but I was hoping I could get some advice. I picked up this Kona for 10 dollars, and I'm hoping to fix it up and give it to my Fiance as a gift. I'm not completely new to bikes, but there are some questions I had. -The paint is pretty good, but there are a couple of big scuff marks. I was thinking about trying to touch up the paint. What would be the best way to color match the paint? I'm thinking automotive paint is the way to go? -The bike needs a new rear tire. Is there an online shop you guys prefer for affordable bike parts(other than Amazon)? -The bike is pretty gunked up. Am I safe using simple green on the gears and sprockets? -One of the cables that goes to the gears is toast. You can see it hanging in the picture. I was going to take it to a shop to have it fixed, but is this something I might be able to do on my own? I have access to a pretty big bike tool box. Thanks in advance.

So I'm pretty sure this is /n/ not /out/ but whatever. I'm going off to college this coming fall and I'm wanting to convert my dad's old full-rigid Diamondback into an ultimate commuter/light (like able to camp for like 1 day & night, nothing like bear grillz shit) camping bike. What are some things I would need besides the obvious tent, sleeping bag, etc etc. If you can you suggest some specific items that'd be awesome.

so i have a fuji nevada 2.1 29'er, and i ride in northwest florida. there is a lot of loose sand at the bottom of hills where water settles, and leaves covering the rest of the trails. ive noticed that the stock tires (VERA eos 29x2.1) seem like absolute garbage on both. i can only manage to get thru 10+- ft of deep sand before having to get off and push, and if im going a decent speed around a corner, the bike tries to slide from under me because of the leaves. what are some good tires for these conditions? price doesnt concern me too much.

Just bought pic related. This is my first bike. What are some essentials for owning a new bike or a bike in general? What do you guys use?

How do you guys keep an eye on your bike and bagage when on tour if you have to go to restaurant? What about camping at national parks ? Won't other campers steal your stuff when you are sleeping ?

How much easier is it to ride a road bike than a mountain bike on a road? I've been trying to get into cycling and was given an old mountain bike by a friend to get me started. I struggle to maintain speed while cycling and need to slow down constantly, is this just me needing to git gud or should I look into buying a decent road bike instead?

Dear /n/ Considering i'm 33 I've never ridden a road bike, just mountain bikes recreationally. How much am I going to get laughed at and how hard am I going to have it if I seek to join a local cycling club? I can do on average 19 km/h with knobbly tires and little training. I'd just like to know what i'm getting myself into if I decide to go through with this (which I really do, cycling makes me feel kind of alive).

Hey Anon, why haven't you put reflective tape all over your bike? I say this because I care about you, Anon.

Bonus points for something that everyone could do with spray paint and paper tape anon with zebra-setup road bike is welcome tl;dr: NICE PAINT THREAD
