Can this be done in real life or is this just some nip fiction that's only done in their j dramas and animu? You see it everywhere, I mean the last time I saw it was in that movie the tale of nishino; so like how do you do this whole league he evidently rides on the back of the bicycle thing? Like do you need the special bicycle for it? Is there a name for this style riding? Is there any special considerations one should take for turns, weight balancing, Etc?

Hey /n/iggers, I got my first ever mountain bike today! I took it out for a ride and the uphill sucked but the downhill was so much fun.

When this shit is gonna happen?

Hope you're all doing well my fi/n/e friends, About a year ago I got a Cyclocross bike after a long (4 month) assessment as to what bike I wanted, it was my first bike, and I love it a lot, always will. I initially was going to spend about 100-200 bucks on a bike, but ended up shelling out about 1200 for a really good bike. I come to you all in need of some advice on what bike to get next, and it's something that I know most of you will fucking hate, but I can't help it, and I'll explain to you why I have to do this. I am in need of two fixed gear cycles, one for my fiancee, and one for myself. I have been using my cyclocross bike while she is using her (really fucking beat up and about to die) town bike. I coast so fucking efficiently on my CX bike, while she is left behind still trying to keep up. I found a decent entry bike for her, but she didn't like the color scheme of it, which I guess is understandable but it fucking broke my heart, because it was decent. I really want a fixie for fitness and fun purposes... not a large investment, but something that I can add to over time. I was either going to go with a Critical (http://www.criticalcycles.com/) or Vilano (http://www.vilanobikes.com/fixed-gear-bikes/vilano-fixiex-fixed-gear-single-speed-urban-fixie-bike-1.html), if you guys have any recommendations within that price range, I'm open to it. But what she ended up wanting was either a brown seat/handlebar scheme with a cream frame (critical) or brown seat handlebar scheme with a baby blue frame. So it has to look straight up vintage fucking hipster etsy tier shit for her to like it. I am not so picky, as long as it is a good bike.

My uncle just gave me his old bike, really happy with it [especially that it was free] I just wanted to know if it was technically any good or not?

I just moved to an area near velodrome and I figured that it would be fun to start track biking. I don't have a bike yet but I know a guy who is selling his felt tk2 frame. The downside is that it has a little crack, but my father can fix it. He has the equipment and the knowledge (not about bikes, but welding aluminum in general). Should I buy the frame for $100 and make my dad fix it or will it crack soon from somewhere else? The frame is in perfectly good shape otherwise. Pic is from the frame I'm looking for.

Track or Die 2014 (with photos) [Alley Cat Race]

142 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I rode in ToD2014 this weekend in NYC, it was my 17th alleycat race and my 4th that I had to travel for. (I'm not from NYC) First time I've ever ridden in NY. This was probably the most fun alleycat I've ridden in, but I was smoked at checkpoint 3. The routes are really condensed because you are basically riding around the borough and during heavy traffic so if you aren't suicidal you are taking it pretty slow. I found the best way for me to get where I was going was to set up my checkpoints from the start line in my google maps and move from checkpoint to checkpoint as if I was driving a car. 2 times I ended up on highway lanes but I managed to not get seen by cops. They make it really hard because not all the checkpoints are at locations that have street addresses so its really important for you to figure out where you are going before you get to pedaling.

Want to world tour

Want to world tour 46 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hello /n/ I assume this is the right place I haven't discussed this on any 4chan board before other than /out/ and never a full thread. but I want to tour the world on a bicycle. I'm looking at cycling from wherever I am in 2016 (likely Germany, possibly UK or cyprus) down to Australia. I'm someone who has always enjoyed cycling and have cycled pretty much my entire life. But I have never taken it... 'seriously' its always just been something that's there. I know how to perform basic maintenance but nothing major. I've done plenty of research and have the gear for my panniers pretty much nailed down. Currently I have a cheap town bike that I take on lengthy long weekend tours across Germany just to build the hype for the tour. I'm very much enjoying it and decided its something I want to dedicate a few years of my life to. The only thing I really need your help on is the bicycle itself. I've got the gearlist covered. I'm looking at a Tout Terrain Silkroad with a Rholoff Silver hub. But I am also looking at a Koga Randonneur 700c which would be a easy buy as its literally just down the road and they all speak good english. I live in Germany but do not speak German which is a bit of a issue! I'm leaning more towards the tout terrain silkroad. >http://www.en.tout-terrain.de/bicycles/silkroad/ >http://www.koga.com/en/bikes/trekking/collection/randonneur.htm?frame=H

>Guy going in for knee surgery last fall, selling a Specialized 29er my size for $400 >snag it two weeks before winter. Pull it out this spring and decide it's only marginally better than my steel frame mountain bike I pulled out of a scrap pile 4 years ago and put un-tacoed wheels on. Ask $400 for the 29er. >Gone in a day. Anyone else prefer older bikes to brand new ones?

Best place to trade steel?

Best place to trade steel? 3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Normally don't have any issues buying and selling but I kinda wanna just put this one up for trade... I love it and wanna keep it but most of my rides turn into gravel/fireroad rides and this thing tends to prefer the pavement. Looking for something just as interesting though... where do the rest of the steel cool kids hang out so I could try to get some offers on this?

Why do you guys hate hybrids so much? If I want something in between a cx bike and a xc mtb, and hybrids are so bad, what should I get? I already know the answer is hybrid and that hybrids aren't bad, but I want to know what you guys will say.

Where do you draw the line between "slicks" and "knobbies", and is their an in between? >inb4 >>>/bqg/ I'm not trying to get a single straight answer, I want to know how you guys personally see this issue and discuss it. What would you consider something like Randonneurs or Town Rides? They are textured, but not nearly enough so to be called knobbies imo. What about something more textured but still not particularly knobby like Marathon Mondials? In my opinion only textureless road tires qualify as slicks, and a tire has to be significantly textured (i.e. a fair bit moreso than Marathon Mondials) to be called knobbies. The in betweens I just refer to as textured but there's probably a better (maybe even "correct"?) term for them.

I am sick and tired of my 700x23 tires going through tubes weekly. I want to switch over to 700x28 Kendra Karvs. Has anyone here used them? If so what did you think of them? Can they handle shitty city streets full of gravel and sticks?
