This tiny piece of metal has caused me so much annoyance. I've gone through 3 tubes, what a waste.
Each time I had done a visual inspection of the tire, then ran my fingers through. Nothing. This third time I must have gone the right angle because this little shitter sliced my finger open.

When looking for burrs or sharp spots, run a cotton ball over the area. Cotton will catch and rip out at the bad spot, marking the trouble place. Stops from cutting your finger open, too.

Solution: Don't put in a new tube until you know why the last one popped. A pinch flat looks a certain way, and if it's not that, you need to find out what happened, or you'll do exactly what you did.

Why are Republicans so anti-transit?

Transit is good for the local economy, good for home values, and saves money in the public budget.
Also, pedestrian and transit-friendly development is a much better investment than urban sprawl.

How tha fuck do I know how fast I'm goin??? I want a simple device to tell me speed, but not my phone, just something to leave on the handlebars. If it needs batteries or to be charged, that's fine. Just a basic MPH or KPH is fine. Strava only tells me speeds afterwards and it's all averaged. I want real time.

Thanks, bike n00b here

At least my activity sensor doesn't accurately measure HR while cycling or in most other high intensity activities. It recognizes cycling as an activity just fine and can track the overall time quite accurately but it's not reliable when compared to a HR strap. Don't know if it would be more accurate if I actually turned on an activity manually when it would track other stats also. But since that drains the battery super fast and I got my tracker to track my recovery/sleep/stress and act as a watch I just take it off when I go for a training ride.

Also wireless ANT+ speed sensors have been a thing for ages.

You don't need speed accuracy for anything though. I stopped running a speed sensor and have speed in a tiny corner of my display because I only look at speed if I'm curious. Things like heartrate, power and cadence are much more important.

I don't know what the part is called, but the thing that is above the wheel so that dirt and water don't go over is bent and it scrapes my front tire and I don't know how to fix it.
Should I just try to bend it higher up?

It's like the plastic above the wheel in pic related but covers more of the wheel and is made of aluminum I think.
I just started riding bikes so I don't know what anything is called, and when I checked on google for bike parts none of them had this.
>>
>>1193036
it's called a fender or mudguards
fixing it is basically just common sense, not a strict procedure, so yeah, i don't think a guide will help, bend it, but just be careful especially for the front one because if it goes into the wheel it can lock it up and cause a bad crash.

If you posted a pic of the problem you might get more specific help but yeah just good luck im sure you can work it out.

Kek, tubular tyres aren't more expensive than clinchers except at the high end, and that's only because the high end tyres are developed for professional racing.

How much of an effect did racism have in the creation of the shit american housing layout? Why do we have so many suburbs where it takes 10 minutes to get to civilization and 30min to get to work? I moved from the suburbs into the city and holy shit this is much more efficient. I can walk to 3 restaurants, a subway and 2 gas stations. I can cycle anywhere in town and the surrounding towns. The bus here is great too. About to get rid of my car.

Anyway back to the question
>whites in the cities get advantage at all the jobs and all the pay
>blacks enslaved on plantations
>emancipation
>blacks can finally move around
>build communities in the cities. cities are only place there are any opportunity or protection
>whites fearful of black retribution
>scurry out of the cities into the suburbs. get loan and house pribvilehe. blacks systematically denied housing outside of the city
>whites use privilege wealth to buy cars and afford to commute long distances to work
>blacks relegated to public transport and short distances

You Amerilards really fucked up. Now your infrastructure and transit are garbage and trumps jacking up your gas prices just like Bush did

>Essentially so many people deluded themselves that black people would lower property values that they actually did.

Whats even funnier about this, to me, is that most people will act like this is an accident and not the result of people who make ridiculous profits off both their place in the real estate business, but also probably have loads of profits and assets invested into partner companies that ship them lumber at lower rates, companies that mass produce endless quantities of nails/screws/staples, etc, manipulating the public so they have another way to market their product as 'premium' by making sure to gentrify anywhere they build, thus bolstering their brand/portfolio by associating it with whiteness on a broad scale.

>you saw people begin to return to the cities, which is still going on today.

this, as we grow old and die off we may well see most of the landscape turn into a urban grey area ranging from 5-8 story buildings with the ground floors dedicated to some kind of business, to taller skyscrapers and office buildings, then tapering out into a hilly upper class area with long views of the skyline, and then finally tapering out into some kind of national park, which quickly turns back into low-lying 2 and 3 story apartment complexes and congested gorwing-too-fast-for-its-own-good small town traffic and problems.

basically if you want to camp anymore, you're going to have to be okay with just dealing with enough light pollution to make a new moon look like whatever the correct lunar cycle term is for like, 33% full moon, because we ran out of space and had to put the observatories on mars like 10 years ago, but at least elon must got us off this shithole huh grandpa?

Downtown Detroit is gentrifying pretty steadily. The huge ring of residential zones around the city are a damn mess and are slowly being removed. Someday, I hope it will be a nice dense core surrounded by forest. Still, there is massive opposition to public transit because of obvious entrenched business interests and white people who live out in the sticks and drive an hour to work every day at an auto company, who couldn't imagine any other way to live.
>>
>How much of an effect did racism have in the creation of the shit american housing layout?

The primary effect is racism affecting economics.

OP, your shit is reductive to the point of being insulting. Don't forget that there's loads of places that were relatively racially egalitarian, and they don't have a dramatically different layout. It also completely ignores how discrimination against asians, hispanics, the catholics and Jews worked out.

You're also completely ignoring what happened when you DID get black political and economic leadership in the public sphere.

Look up "blockbusting." Real estate agents purposedly recruited black families to buy a house in white neighborhoods (often with ratchet-up financing that the black purchaser didn't understand and would be forced to default on within a couple years) just so that all the houses in that block would come on market and they'd collect 6% brokerage fee on every house on the block.
