DIY FIXIE

DIY FIXIE 14 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Sup /n/? Starting post-secondary, I've come to find many people are riding fixies around campus, more than longboards. Now I'm more of a mountain biker so I've got fuck all knowledge of road bikes and hipster shit, but I got a pleb gf with barely any skill in anything, and some shitty Walmart bike from 2003, so I figured I could put my talent in building and what not into convincing her to help me convert an old road bike into one. Repainting and all. It won't be hard at all to get the frame and parts, rich people around my area put their old bikes out for pocket change, I got myself a Fuji for $5 a couple years back but tossed it, but from what I know, there are road bikes with the half in width and the ones with what looks to be an inch and a half. Will any road bike be compatible for turning it into a fixie? I'd prefer the thicker, city tires and probably only put a front brake on apart from the backpedal braking. What the hell do I put into Craigslist?

Does anyone here ride noseless saddles? Been looking at an ISM Adamo and wanted to know if there were any better options. I'm a roadie but only do this for cardio. Don't want any issue with my cock so this seems like a good option. I don't care what the saddle looks like.

Help me obi-wan ke/n/obi, you're my only hope! I'm in kind of a bind right now, my parents cut me off after I told them I was dropping out of school and I have six days to move out. I have friends in various cities around the country I can stay with in the short-term but I'll definitely need a car. I have like 11k saved up and I'm willing to spend as much as 6k of it, what would you recommend for someone who's basically planning to drive around the entire US? I'm thinking about a Camry, Accord, maybe a Prius, but I was wondering what advice y'all had. pic unrelated

Okay, so a good friend of mine plans to cycle to from Melbourne to Sydney in December or January of 2014/2015, and he has asked me whether I would like to come with him. He is very fit, has a proper road bike, and is just generally very prepared. I on the other-hand am a complete novice cyclist. I ride around the city, to and from friends houses, and that sort of stuff, so I'm not in any sort of horrible shape. I am however, unaccustomed to long rides. I've knocked off the occasional 30-40km ride, but that's about it. So what I was wondering is, how hard would it be to get into the sort of shape where I am able to join him on this, for want of a better word, conquest? What sort of regime should I adopt to get fit enough for this? Also, if you have any tips for long-distance riding, how to remain comfortable, and what sort of gear I should think about getting (including bike), please do tell me. Also, how much money would a trip like this cost would you guess? And will any old bike be able to make the trip? I currently have an old mountain bike, it's in good shape, I think it was like five hundred dollars or so when my father bought it, but that was ten years ago. I've had it serviced over the years, I clean it regularly, and change the tires, so it is in decent shape. Extra information. I am a 19 year old male, 5'10/178cm, 62kg/137lbs, and currently in university, so I have some long holidays coming up, November-March.

The cold touch of the porcelain throne never felt better. It was supposed to be an out and back ride so I didn't bring my lock. I regretted that decision once I needed to take a dump 10 miles from home. Have you ever needed to take a dump mid ride?

WATER TUBE

90 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi \n\, looking to see if this has been done before. My idea is to have water-filled bike tubes. Kind of out there, I know, but there are quite a few benefits: 1. Water compresses less than air- That means a more solid ride with less energy wasted. 2. Water can carry your momentum - it may be slightly more difficult to get started, but once you get up to a good pace the spiraling water will create a gyroscopic effect that not only keeps you upright, but carries you for a longer distance. 3. Everywhere you go has water. Carry the proper filling attachment and hook up to a nozzle outside. You may ride for miles without finding an air compressor. 4. A quick drink (in emergency situations) - if you get stuck somewhere, you always have the option of drinking from your tire. Probably won't be tasty, but it could be your only option. 5. Easier to find a hole - you will know RIGHT AWAY when you have a puncture in your tube because water will start spraying out. You can patch the tube like normal or with a "wet patch" kit. Let me know what you think. Kickstarter hmm?

Anyone use a GPS tracker for their bike? Someone was just commenting about how they're surprised that I've had my bike for so long in this town without it getting stolen. It's nothing fancy, so that helps. Also I never leave it downtown overnight or locked while shopping for more than an hour. But I see lots of black rattle-canned piece of shit bikes around town, so now I'm a bit nervous about it. It's my car. I need it to get around. Also I've had it for 20 years so there's some sentiment involved. Anyhow, blah blah blah tldr: GPS tracking for my bike that doesn't cost more than my bike is worth.

ok guys this is a kinda odd question imo but where the fuck do I learn about trains? All you guys chatting about gauges and debating different types of rail. I know I'd love to know that stuff but the problem is I don't know what I don't know (as opposed to knowing what the name of stuff I don't know is so that I could learn it myself). Is there like a "railfan bible" or something. I wish /n/ had a sticky :/ Pic related the train I get and have 0 idea how it works at all
