Any similar stories? Also, this might sound like a stupid question, but is there an easy way to get a very high gear ratio (like 1:5 or so) without sacrificing the ones I already have? I have to pedal much too fast with my bike's current gearing to get 27+ mi/h.

Wait a minute, you mean to tell me that the entire left hand side of this bottom bracket is supported by this PLASTIC cup? How does this not explode into itty bitty bits when you start putting some weight on the pedals?

Casual Bicycle Riding

71 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I have some fond memories of riding around my neighborhood on a bike between the ages of around 12-17 or so, but I haven't been able to ride a bike regularly for a number of years. I want to just ride around my neighborhood every once in a while exploring the parts of the suburbs around me that are within half an hour to 45 minutes of me, building up just a little bit of speed (about as fast as a sprinter), and seeing how far I can coast while taking advantage of the minor dips and inclines in the asphalt. I don't have any plans or ambitions of doing anything cross-country, and I sure as shit don't want to be sharing a lane with 60 km/h traffic. How do I do this? I found out that bicycles are not allowed on the side walk (which means that little 6-year-old Timmy is /supposed/ to be pushed into 60 km traffic when learning how to ride a bike), but drivers keep passing me on roads with one lane and a solid yellow line. I want to ride around and practice my balance a bit (like learning how to turn with one hand on the handle bars), but I don't want to be murdered while doing it. Bike lanes are a rarity, and usually happen with absolutely nothing between me and the cars. Are bicycles just effectively illegal, even if the rules aren't enforced very much? How do I get back to wandering the nearby roads and coasting without having to drive a car? (Harder to stop and look at my map to find myself if I get lost in the new housing developments).

Anybody know what the headtube length is on these bad boys? http://www.amazon.com/Alloy-Track-Fixie-Frame-Matte/dp/B00HZ9PRH0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1402038509&sr=8-2&keywords=track+fixie+frame Theyre obviously fairly cheap so I presume theyve been used by a fair number of people, but given the lack of a brand I cant find reviews so. Egh. Anything else I should know about these frames if anyone has used one? I expect itll be heavier than more expensive shit, sure. But. Dgaf. Long as it doesnt crack if you look at it wrong, threads are good, seatpost size is accurate, rear spacing is accurate, etc., etc.

Hey /n/ this is a help thread. /fit/ sent me over here to find answers. I just bought a used 2012 Specialized Hardrock for 180bucks. I was told its not only a good introductory bike but it's also a steal at that price. Here's where the help comes in. I have very basic knowledge of how to fix bikes. I havent road in 16 years and i've never had a bike with gears. I understand how to shift and that i shouldnt shift when the bike is stopped etc. However i got it home and realized the shifting wasnt working. So i speant hours today learning how to align the derailleur. I've done it 4 times and was coached by both /fit/ and a cyclist buddy on how to fix it. I've also adjusted w/e you called the tension wire that goes to the rear derailleur. I've done this 5 times with the same results When i shift into 2nd gear the shifter will NOT go into 1st. Once i hit 2nd gear the shifter stops working entirely. I've aligned the rear derailleur, I've calibrated the tension wire to the RD, and I've also calibrated the what im calling the barrel adjuster attached to the tension wire where it meets the RD. Do you all have any insight as to what might be causing this? Is it that I'm not aligning correctly or do you think the shifter is shot. I honestly think the shifter is shot because it shifts fine up and down until i try to go into first. TL;DR read last paragraph

Epic Shitposting. I'm sorry. I'm looking to get a bicycle that's good on roads, but allows for some give, with multiple gears. Optimally less than 350 Canadian. If you guys have any help at all, it'd be great. Pic is a random 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.
