How hard would it be to mount a 2 stroke onto a bike? Money is probably be the only thing standing in my way of doing this.

$4,000 to spend on a bike

61 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
My very personal, and customized Trek 2300 was stolen from me early this year. My insurance company just settled. Essentially I have a credit of $4,500 to purchase a new bike. I looked at a Trek Madone 5.2, its $3,500. Add pedals, cup holder, computer, mirror, pump, and CF aero style handlebars, tax, and the total cost is $4,500. That bike is the most comparable to what was taken from me. My 2300 was entirely carbon fiber, except the composite frame with Ultegra gearing, brakes, and race lite wheels. I had about $2,400 into that bike with 80% of the parts purchased used, or heavily discounted. If I paid full price for all the upgrades, the final cost would have easily been $4,000, or more. Besides Trek, what other bike brands, and models can I look into? Requirements: -Recreational cycling only, I do a few centennial rides per year, otherwise I ride at least 50 miles every other weekend. -Sales prices, custom builds, online deals are all useless as I need to spend the $4,500. I can go over, but I do not have the spare income. -The bike needs to match what I had before, or be better. Pretty much all components need to be CF, I need to have aero bars, integration of a wireless computer, etc. -Bike must be black, as I wont ride any other color. I'm pretty set on the Madone, just waiting for the check, but I want to look into other makes, and models as a reference point. Pic related, its my old bike

Complete noob to biking, but one of my friends got the Motobecane Elite FS, and I'd like to get one too. I took it for a ride, and after a life spent on walmart bikes I was blown away at how easy it was to accelerate and maintain speed. http://www.motobecane.com/lifestyle/elt.html I am around 300 lbs though, so I'm wondering if I can actually ride something like this. Also, is it a good bike for <$400 (for casual streets/paved trails)? Thanks!

Bike commuter appreciation thread. I truly believe in the depth of my being; if you ride a bike as your only form of transportation and do so by choice; you are a true positive force and benefit to the world. I also that if you can do this and stick to it year round your just a straight up bad ass and other people are fucking pussies by comparison. Thank you for going out every day and enduring.

Sup /n/ I have a mountain bike but it gets me very tried if I have to ride long distances due to its weight. I'm looking for a bike that has the following specs: 1. Super Lightweight 2. Mountain Bike-like wheels or super rigid wheels that you can go off-road with. I heard road bike wheels can bend easily, etc. I'm not looking for super tough wheel frames and tires/tubes for mountain, but more like to go off road in parks, etc. 3. At least 21 speeds, prefferably 27. 4. Price range around 200$ used, maximum 400$ if it's really really good. And as a bonus but not a necessity: It shouldnt make you bend over too much so that that muscle between your legs, close to the penis, starts hurting.

Hey /n/, been lurking for a bit and I had some questions. I've been biking everywhere for about 3 years on my road bike (Pic Related) and it's starting to get worn down. I've tuned it up regularly and taken it to the shop as well, but I was wondering is there any one thing that working on made a huge difference in your ride? Or is it just a little of everything? Also any suggestions on a nice touring bike for roughly $1000?

Is bicycling for weight loss feasible? I go about 40-60 miles a week, half for work, half for fun.

Hi /n/. I want some advice from you. My bike was stolen and I'm looking for a new one. I want to buy a road bike but I don't have the money right now and I really want to ride a bike. So I saw an offer for the one on the pic. The frame is Sprick. It has Weinmann front brake and another Weinmann back brake comes with it. There are road handlebars coming with it too. The tires are Rubena busseto. What do you think? The price is really OK, it is 1/3 of my last bike which was an aluminium rigid MB with Shimano Tourney commands. It was great but I just don't want to buy the same.

Help me find a bike!

4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /n/, I was hoping I could get some help finding a used road bike in Norfolk, VA. norfolk.craigslist.org is my local site I'm 6' (183 cm) with a 35" (89 cm) inseam. Not looking to break to bank, as this bike will be kept very close to the ocean and I don't know know how long anything out here would hold up before falling victim to rust.
