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

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?

What should my training plan look like if I want to race next season? I'd be racing cat 5 junior if that helps. Thanks /n/. Also, I'm a poorfag, so I have no fancy powermeters, just a regular trainer.

/n/igs, my current goal is to get ready for a crit race next season - What exactly am I in for? I've heard that the competition can get down-right thugish and nasty during the heat of battle.

no to clipless

77 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I just can't do it. I don't want to make the transition to clipless pedals/shoes. I want to actually be able to walk around if necessary without clonking about as if I was wearing tap dancing shoes. Plus they're ugly as hell and add +5 points to the Fred scale. Sure I'll do the helmet, I'll do the lycra shorts, I'll do the jersey (plain, no sponsors, no bright colors), but I can't seem to wrap my head around wearing clipless shoes/pedals. 5% power increase? Is it really worth it? I'm already scared shitless riding in traffic with regular shoes, I can't even imagine riding clipped in and coming to a stop at red lights. Pic related - buying some Nike Running shoes to ride in. Your thoughts?

I've been messing with OpenTTD for a while now, and I think I'm ready for online play. Anyone care for a match? I'd like to see how I fare against someone who knows what they're doing. Also OTTD thread.

I'm a Decathlon worker. Currently at the cycling section, but I've spent more than a year also working in the workshop (atelier). Ask me anything about the business, the bikes we sell or the stuff we do! Pic related, current biku.

Jet pilots have the ejector seat but what do helicopter pilots have when things go wrong? Why don't helicopters have ejection seats as well? It seems like you are along for the ride when something goes wrong in a helicopter. An ejection seat could change that.

Do any of you have access to NYC MTA ridership statistics? The MTA website had information since 2007 but I'd like to see the statistics back to when they first started. http://web.mta.info/nyct/facts/ridership/ Thanks

Eyewear for Strobe Lights

7 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /n/ this may be the right place to ask this. My friend drives the tractor pulling a trailer of people for a Haunted Trail event, but he gets blinded by the strobe lights during several portions of it, especially because it's pitch dark. Is there any protective eyewear he could wear to help during these parts? Would yellow lense glasses work?
