i just made one with a piece of flat bar and a file.
fuck your overpriced shit

Looking into building my own bike, and perhaps buding bikes for shits n grits. The only problem is i have very minimal knowledge of bicycle mechanics.
Are there any online sources or books to help introduce me to this? Thanks in advance!

Also, hybrid frame thread ig, bc that's all ive got in my collection.

Why do you want to build a bike rather than just upgrade an existing one?
And what do you mean by 'build' one? Do you mean you want to fabricate the frame yourself, too? If so, why, other than 'to do it'?

Best bike in the area for the price and close I think.

https://texoma.craigslist.org/bik/d/specialized-allez-road-bike/6267607556.html

I don't really want the front handles and padding and the shoes are too big but I'm six one and the bike should be about the right size for me. You guys see anything wrong with it before I try to haggle it for 200/250ish that would make it a no go? Or any advice? It'd be my first bike since being a kid but I want to start commuting the area and won't go more than a few miles.

The only thing worse than having someone you don't know draft off you is drafting someone you don't know. With a moderate headwind the tiny gap disappears fast if they randomly decided to coast a few seconds. So you need to trust the person in front isn't an idiot as it doesn't take much front wheel contact for person in back to go down.

Too many...
I stopped counting, roads are shit here and I ride during the night.
I always carry 2 tubes and a patch kit.
>wich tires
I have 25 mm Vera Helios and tried 28mm Continental Super Sport with anti puncture belt once, for whatever reason the Vera Helios had less flats and a lower rolling resistance, higher grip and lowe weight.
>culprit
tiny pieces of glass, pinchers

One time I forgot my tubes and pumped the front tire to like 3 bar every 2km.
Since I only weigh 55 kg I leaned back during the ride and put pretty much no load on the damaged front tire to get home and patch it.

Why are there so many goddamn buses in Seattle? I mean holy shit there were no less than 3 buses on that particular intersection at any given moment.

How do you cuckd city fags deal with it? Last time I was on a bus it was absolutely disgusting with weird people everywhere. I mean, we literally made fun of other kids in school for taking the bus, and now they're all adults they all take it like good little goys.

In any case it's the fault of a failed neoliberal cleptocracy that leaves its own people to starve like dogs. But hey, to each his own, that's how it's always been in burgerland. Just don't fucking blame public transit for it. At least public transit jobs can't be outsorced like car factory jobs. So you can't suddenly end up with loads of unemployed on a car maker's whim.
Preach it brother.

Bus & coach companies are barely floating because their products cannot follow the "planned obsolescence" scheme of operation like consumer good manufacturers (ie cars). The shit they make must last decades with minimal maintenance.

Riding in a group is a very different from riding on your own. I can sustain an easy average speed of 38km/h in a group but I can only ride about 33-35 when cycling alone. I tried a few top of the line Specialized bikes once and there really is a difference: less weight and more stiffness already make you able to go a bit faster. But in the end you just have to train.

I can reach about 55km/h sprinting on my old bike.

Bendy bus is never used in the United States. They are called articulated buses or artics in the garage.

t. spent last summer inspecting buses for local metropolitan planning organization.
>>
>>1101338
You're asking the wrong question.
You should either ask the Londoners which they personally prefer, or which is better for a purpose (you specify) or what purpose each is better for.

I haven't been to London since the Boris Buses arrived, but I was there when Ken brought in the Bendy Buses. At first he only used them on Red Arrow routes and outer suburban routes, both of which they were very well suited to.

It would have been sensible to continue to put them on more outer suburban routes. Instead he went mad, destroying the Routemasters, and putting the bendy buses on lots of Central London routes.

I like this British term better. It's at least a bit funny. In Germany the official term for articulated buses is Gelenkbus. A very literal and uninspired translation. But people in Berlin call them Schlenkie. Which means wobbly.
