This type of legs is from track cyclist, wich need to have power muscles because they only ride on tracks, and they diet is prepared to achieve that.

And this is for road cyclists, and they are like that because they must save weight, since on the road there are different types of descents and climbs, where the weight is fundamental.
This is what really gonna hapen to you op, if you are afraid of legs like that...

who the fuck cares, his handle bars are still lower than his seat. maybe he is tall as fuck but with a short torso ratio
178cm. The frame actually has a shorter headtube than the drop bar version by 15mm and I've since lowered the stem by like 20mm.

I could slam it and it wouldn't be a problem in terms of comfort so maybe I'll do it when I can be bothered to cut the steerer.
The implication here was it's a stupid idea to make an IGH build on a frame not suited for it.
Because it requires a chain tensioner? That's a shitty reason, it works fine and has the advantage of easier wheel removal and the ability to go back to a derailer drivetrain if needed.

depends on,
in a packed pedestrian zone it's pedestrian speed, in an area with lower pedestrian traffic there may be limits between 30km/h and 50km/h, in street traffic with no pedestrians it could be up to 70km/h

Think this would be a good starter to work on and improve? Is it worth the money? Needs to lose the damned old cassette at the very least.


As a currently functioning bike, 85 is fine. But for a full build that you're going to work on, absolutely not. Fuck conversions, they cost more money and give you an inferior end result.
As a single speed, sure,
Thanks mang, they do good work in teaching normies about bikes and cycling.

You misunderstand. It's not that they should commit suicide. It's that brakeless fixies are dangerous outside of controlled circumstances, so riding one on the street is asking to get at least seriously injured anyway.

Do you ever think about how basically all driveways are connected to each other?

Ayyy Fulton county here but yeah you're lucky to not have a marta station(I know exactly the place you're talking about) whenever I have to go downtown I prefer driving(unless its to the airport) to MARTA(moving africans rapidly through atlanta
I don't get why it gets such a bad rap.
I used to ride it all the time before I had a guaranteed parking space in the city. Unlike all the horror stories everybody OTP seems to have heard from friend's relatives, I rarely ever saw anything strange. (the obvious 1 or 2 homeless sleeping in the back corner seats during off-peak hours aren't strange) The "worst" is the occasional gospel nut or panhandler.

99% of my trips were from North Springs <--> Peachtree Center if that means anything
All that said, when heading to or from downtown from the north, driving is faster than MARTA, even during rush hour, so that's why I usually drive anyway now. I have the luxury of a flexible schedule that lets me drive into downtown early enough before commuter traffic starts picking up

>you can use it to go or transfer anywhere.
But that's wrong, the 6 doesn't connect with anything except like the 7 and the L, and sort of the B way down there by Broadway-Lafayette or Bleecker or whatever it's called, as long as you're willing to go upstairs and down again and hopefully you've got unlimited lol.

Whereas the 1 connects with every train in the system except the 6 (obviously), the G, the SIRR, and like the J and Z probably but no one cares about those
There's a 5 train? Pic related.
I didn't understand what he was saying because he was so wrong.
If you don't want to walk down hills to Columbia its the only game in town.
The 6 connects with the N and R at 59 Street. There was even a salsa song about the 6.

If the county bothered to clean the damn road more often, situations like this wouldn't have happened. Too often I see roadkill ending up on bike lanes.

Fucking soccer moms
lol too many to count.

almost every one of them has been someone swinging a left without looking and nearly creaming me. I've had to swerve into oncoming traffic to avoid slamming into dipshits before.

Only time i've actually been hit is when I was riding in the bike lane and had someone turn right infront of me, causing me to slam into the side of their suv, totaling my bike. I was relatively unharmed though. got a fat insurance check from it.

i had a guy buzz by me, really close, as i pass him at a light i see he's on his phone so i give him a "hang up" hand motion and he fucking loses it, honking a bunch, i turn around and he's fucking raging hard, it was hilarious

biggest dipshit goes to the champion who rear ended me when I was at a red light. Best part was, he already pulled up to the light and stopped behind me. maybe he just forgot? or accidentally let go of the brake. He tried to run off, but i chased after him and got his plate number.

My car broke down, commuting to college on my bike for the first time. I hope nobody makes fun of me.
looking for a ride like this. how much does it weigh?
It's for a chain tensioner. It looks like the rear axle spacing is for a single speed but the dropouts don't allow for movement to tension the chain. I can't imagine this working without a chain tensioner.
If they do, then laugh back on your way home passing all of them stuck in traffic queues.

What are some essential cycling snacks and fuel to keep for 30 + mile trips?

I just started cycling and am really underweight but I plan to do long commutes so I need to avoid my organs eating themselves.
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Under 2.5 hours I don't eat anything, though I can start running out of energy towards the end.

Long rides I have a 350 calorie snack after the first 2 hours and every 1.5 hours after that not eating anything once I'm within 1.5 - 2 hours of finishing. If I'm riding harder than normal I'll start eating a bit sooner.
Up to something like two hours you don´t need food for the ride itself. Just some water. For anything longer I bring watered down apple juice and some chocolate bars. But the chocolate is more like emergency fuel, usually i get some food on the way.

Just keep in mind that this doesn´t mean you don´t burn any calories on shorter rides. Its just better, cheaper, healthier and more convenient to get those calories before and after your ride, as a part of your regular diet. Energy bars, gels, electrolyte drinks and stuff like that is basically fancy candy. Sometime on special occasions and so is okay, but don´t get them every day.

If you start riding a lot you will have to eat more, there´s no way around that. A rough estimate for i´m using for myself is 400 kcal/hour going at 25km/h average on flat land.

But i´m not really counting calories, I mostly just eat when I´m hungry, and weigh myself from time to time to see if my weight remains stable.
If you want to change your weight, there´s no way around counting calories. Maybe try the sticky on /fit, its actually pretty good.
Alcohol, almost double the energy per gram.
I read somewhere you should be hitting an oz of energy gel every 45 minutes. Is that overkill? I had a 3 hour ride the other day and did it.
I'm always snacking on something every 30 minutes or so
Without drinking and eating consistently, I bonk out and feel like shit
