>that 30 year old boomer on a brand name $500 bike

Who are the worst cycling personalities in your area? For me it is the trust fund boomers with their fancy dork disks that they think make them go faster (all it does is cut your leg in an accident)

People on city bikes of any kind. They're the ones who ruin cycling for everyone.

You realize you can't be 30 and a boomer anymore, right?

This is a fucking awful thread. Dork disks have never cut anyone except the fools that hurt themselves removing them.

The most annoying an dangerous cyclists are the faggot athletes going way too fast on MTB posing a threat to everyone around them, and roadies that take high risk maneuvers to get around people.

Ya guys gotta just calm down.

None of them are as bad as the type of judgemental prick who makes threads like these.

what about cautious mid risk maneuvers? am i ok? seems safer going too fast on a mtb. those things are pretty stable compared to the latter.

The plastic bit between the cassette and the spokes that comes on cheap bicycles
>>
>>1201187
It comes on expensive bicycles too. It's just that places that sell expensive bicycles will usually remove them.
>>
Dork Disc means Spoke Protector not Disc Brake Rotor.

metal dork disc are worst cause they go on the hub but is free floating instead of slotting in like the cassette so they just add a bit of drag when the wheel is turning

I fail to understand why they're even there. Like seriously just use the limiter screw

That's also true when they're IN cars!

I'd rather have them on bicycles. They weigh a lot less and they're better for the metro landscape. Hating bicycle adoption is like the antithesis of /n/,

I bash citi bikers all the time but it's like the 1980s martial arts movies. You talk shit all you want but at some point you make peace with the petty neighborhood criminals and team up to fight the REAL bad guys.

Gen X are the biggest lot of cunts ever to exist. They like to act like they know everything when they don't even know basic cycling law, and they obnoxiously try to scold you like it's their job to follow and berate you when they're talking out their ass and don't know shit.
Old fucks on bikes are always chill. Gen X need to be stabbed in the liver, every last one. People hate on boomers all the time but gen X are even bigger, greasier, more psychopathic kiked up shitbags, and they get away with it because boomers take all the blame and the gen x just silently creep out of responsibility like the rats they are.
I hate gen X more than the hobos and alcholics on shitty mountainbikes covered in crap with bags niggerrigged all over it, swerving all over the road without regard to traffic, and rolling down the sidewalk giving no fucks.
I hate gen x more than bike thieving niggers and the hobos who steal bike wheels and tubes from single-giftribbon morons.
I hate gen x more than the giftribbon users who leave their dead skeleton of a frame in the rack to rust for the rest of time because they got their wheel or post stolen.
I hate gen X more than those annoying niggerspic mutts on hoverboards and motorized skateboards and scooters.
I hate gen X more than the mommycart cyclists toting their trio of twatlets down the bike path every weekend slow as shit.
Gen X should be genocided.

>>1204272
Well, I'm not sure what the consensus is but I think a fred is someone (say a dentist or lawyer) middle aged, and with a lot of money. They overspend on gear contra their ability. They will spend an extra 200 dollars for a component that is 50 grams lighter despite being 30kg overweight.
I don't really have a problem with them as long as they are nice and nod back when I nod at them.

How dumb are you isolated nerds?

30 year old boomer? The term boomer is short for baby boomers. Baby boomers are a reference to the large generation of people in the USA born after WWII from the 1940's to the 1960's when the birth-rate was high. People in their thirties are technically millenials. Most Reddit lusers are Igen, those who cannot remember what it was like before Apple released the Iphone in 2007.

IGEN NERDS ARE DUMB...

>Who are the worst cycling personalities in your area?
People who don't see the difference between bike path and a sidewalk, also those who ride one-way bike lanes in wrong direction. They're fucking plague here, like 50% of cyclists. Recently my city started to build a lot of new high quality cycling infrastructure (we only had some shitty bike paths before that weren't even connected), but these ignorants are too stupid to even appreciate it. I fucking hate them, they make all cyclists look bad. If they're too scared to use the street and too stupid to understand how right-hand traffic works, they shouldn't drive any vehicle at all.
