Where do you draw the line... 22 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
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.

Do you listen to music when you pedal /n/? If so what do you listen to? I like to listen to super eurobeat because I want to pretend I'm in Initial D but with bikes.

I am planning a bike trip in a week. I've found a good and straightforward route, but I'm still scared of being lost. How do you guys avoid this? I was looking for an offline bike gps app (android), but I couldn't find one.

Day 1 >>710217 Today was mostly about the Highschool Student electric bike competitions. There was a "Hub only" class, and "Open" class. The primary competition was the One Hour Enduro race-- one hour, with one rider change. A bit disappointingly, almost everyone was using generic 'Chinese' hub motors. However there were a few homebrew motor systems that I could be interested in.

Of happenings?

*STB approves Fresno – Bakersfield HS line* Wednesday, August 13, 2014 "THE United States Surface Transportation Board (STB) has authorised California High Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) to begin construction on the Fresno – Bakersfield section of the state's high-speed network" The approval covers construction package 2-3, the 97km stretch of the Initial Operating Section (IOS 1) between East America Avenue south of Fresno and the border between Kern and Tulare counties northwest of Bakersfield. The route largely follows the route of the existing BNSF line from Fresno to Bakersfield via Hanford. Five consortia have been shortlisted for construction package 2-3, and CHSRA expects to award the contract before the end of the year. CHSRA announced on August 12 that it has awarded the US subsidiary of Arcadis, Netherlands, a contract for design and construction supervision services on construction package 2-3. The contract could be worth up to $US 71m over five years. Construction is already underway on the northern section of the IOS between Fresno and Madera http://www.railjournal.com/index.php...ml?channel=542

While I was out riding in Melbourne yesterday, my route took me through taxi alley, aka Murphy St, Richmond. I saw these bits of government propaganda... I can believe that the highest income earners will be given free travel during the day (though most of them will end up paying for all day travel anyway when they commute in the evening) but what are the odds that the second one will ever happen?

On my rides I always say hi to pedestrians who look my way and also say hi to cyclists pedaling the other way, even if they're homeless. Do you acknowledge others? Do you notify pedestrians coming out or into their car that you're passing them around? Do you pull over and slow down for vehicles that want to speed up?

I debated posting this on /fit/, but I figured I'd get more feedback here. Does anyone else get intense headaches if they bike for more than 30 minutes in the heat? I get headaches pretty consistently even if I drink water throughout my ride. They're severe enough to lay me out on the couch for a good few hours while I recover. On my last ride I filled a bottle with, essentially, salty sugar water. It helped quite a bit, so I'm going to buy gatorade or Nuun tablets in the future. I didn't have this problem before I developed severe depression, and I haven't heard of anyone experiencing intense headaches like mine. Could I just produce saltier sweat than normal?

Is paying for a light bike really worth it when you aren't preparing for a race? I hear people saying all the time that every pound counts. But let's say the bike is 20 lb. On top of that, the rider is, let's say 150 lb. So you have 170 lb total. Even if the bike was half as light, you've only reduced your effort by 6%. If even 1 lb difference in bike weight mattered, then you would feel the effect of wearing a heavy coat, carrying a heavy backpack, wearing heavier shoes and even eating before vs. after the ride. But I've never felt any of these make a noticeable difference.

I got invited to a 2 lap jam tonight but I've never rode in one. How does it work? What should I expect? They are racing 3 categories. >Single speed with brakes >Fixed/Brakeless >Roadie I'll be riding my road bike! Wish me luck!

I don't mean to fag up /n/ with an entire thread for such a small question but the BQG just went past the bump limit. I have a pair of Lycra shorts with no chamois insert. Can I shove a ShamWow-type cloth between the shorts and my crotch to achieve the same effect? Or are synthetic shorts shamois different? Will it irritate my perenium/dehsticles/benis?

i will preface all of this by saying that i dont really know anything about cycling. today i rode to the store and the rear tube on my shitty craigslist bike blew out. i wasnt sure if walking it home would damage the rim so i carried it the 3 km back. would the rim have been fine if i walked it back? does carrying a bike look more or less stupid than walking it? thank you in advance also, maybe this could be a dumb newbie question general thread
