I'm fine with that, changes consumer habits and potentially indirectly harms corporations by decreasing sales. More to the point it incentivizes actual change, most pollution is from corporations whether energy for cooling and lighting large office buildings and warehouses construction of concrete or shipping goods and people. The onus for stopping climate change shouldn't rest solely on individuals.

It's really a bad look when the worlds most famous bicycling event is so prominently displaying cagies.
Could it even be held without support cars or motorcycles?

You can literally ride most tubeless tires down to the thread without punctures. Most punctures in the pro peloton nowadays are because of bad application of tubeless (like having no sealant in tires, yes they actually do that) or the refusal to use tubeless. It's at a point that I don't know anyone that has race day tires and wheelsets anymore. Everyone rides the same wheels and tires in races as they train on.

Also there are no crazy high mod frames made for one season. My last bike was highest tier frame available and I did over 100 000 km on it. Including couple crashes. It still rides like new.

>>2006644
There's downtime between stages, including rest days. Changing a tire takes like 15 minutes tops. You start the race on new tires and swap new tires on every rest day. Not an issue. Of course you're still leaving some life on the tire when doing like that but you can reuse those on training and some irrelevant kermiskoersen. Or gift them to poorfags like you that complain about bikes being so expensive.

And the bike doesn't go into a ditch. The mechanic takes it and swaps a new wheel onto it so it's ready if something happens further down the stage. They'll often swap back to the original bike if there's a quieter stretch in the race.

Professional cycling athletes are not 'cyclists'. They will literally go motorized if their training plan does not call for cycling. They may have been cyclists once but have sacrificed everything else on their way to peak performance.

"cagies." i thought you had to be 18 to post on 4chan

It disgusts me how today's so-called "cycling activists" are doing the work of the automotive lobby while thinking that they're the good guys.

Imagine if a bunch of politicians started pushing for a special residential area for a certain group, after having them habitually assaulted with weapons for many years. "We're terribly sorry about all the bloodshed but can't guarantee your safety, if you want to be safe, you have to go in this special place we designated for you".

That is what bike lanes are. We've tried "separate but equal". It doesn't work, because tyranny of the majority means a highly flexible definition of "equal".

People who have been riding bikes for many decades know what the game is. But zoomers and corona cyclists believe they know best. Instead of demanding justice, they demand segregation. Which is exactly what the automotive supremacists want.

(Mostly accurate, but both it and the Mayday episode miss the fact the engines were shut off, just later then they should have been and only after being reminded by ATC. Then they said they were going to begin evacuations and that was last contact)

What are some good and simple carbon roadbike fenders/mudguards? I got showered 4 times during a ride yesterday (and the 5th tine was a hail), I'm sick of road spray. I am looking at the zefal swan (pic related) because it seems simple to mount when needed and is really cheap. Are the aks ones much better? They seem way more involved to install.

fyi theres no point to fenders being cf since they don't have to be strong, you'll find plenty that are just plastic and they're just fine

This
The fender material is irrelevant as long as it's light, plastic if fine for this and carbon fibre just is strengthened plastic, but as there's no need for strength it's retarded to pay more for it.

Now, carbon fibre struts do make sense, as do titanium struts, and that's why I use them.

Anyone use winter-specific road or MTB shoes? I've been depending on overshoes for too long

Discuss bike apparel. Engage in catty tribalism between "lycra lout aero fred" and "practical normal not-a-cyclist' (actually still marketed to cyclists but with reverse psychology) apparel. Boast of your metric century (not a real century) wearing just jeans and a t-shirt. Conveniently, there is no strava of it but it totally happened I swear!

Not that expensive really, they are becoming more common, I got a frame for 120 euro +45 for each glass.
Compared to my old frame that had 7 years which was 60, accounting for inflation its at most a 50% cost increase for something that lasts way longer, you only need to replace springs/screws once worn out

He's saying while most are washed by 30, cycling GC guys peak in their mid-late 20s.

This might not be the norm now with this generation of elite guys just skipping the under 23 crap- getting ypur career started earlier might push their peak back to early mid 20s.

I think to win the tour you need to harden up a bit. Rookies dont prosper there.

Happy Mallard Day, everyone. 86 years ago today, on the 3rd of July in 1938, 4468 Mallard reached 126mph / 203kph between Grantham and Peterborough on the East Coast Main Line; a steam record which remains unbroken to this day. As usual with these records, others claim to have reached or exceeded this speed, but they are sadly unauthenticated.

Mallard never reached this speed while in regular service, of course: this was a one-off record-breaking attempt, but the feat was enough to ensure she was preserved after her well-earned retirement in 1963. These days she lives as an exhibit at the National Railway Museum in York, a five-minute walk from York railway station. Go take a look, if you're able.

The National Railway Museum's 'Curator with a Camera' mini-series takes a detailed look inside the locomotive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYwFavyERsI

...here's the obligatory Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LNER_Class_A4_4468_Mallard

...and of course there's a small marker commemorating the record on the East Coast Main Line, which can be briefly seen from passing trains.

Do any of you work for your city/region's public transit? Buses, subway, etc. Could be as an operator or any position in the agency.

I have frequently thought about joining my region's subway agency in some sort of position because I have ridden it every day for many years, and really appreciate how it has allowed me to not need to deal with car ownership. However, I cannot get over thinking about how by working for the agency, I would be complicit in helping/allowing for the transportation of all the scum and pieces of shit who use the system (usually illegally by fare jumping) like homeless, drug addicts, criminals, and other groups who get onto the system and make the experience negative for actual well-to-do riders.

If you want to fight degeneracy in public transit find a job in bike share. Different cities may have different policies towards this, but in my city we have a handful of people whose job is to steal bikes back from junkies. It's not the most relaxing job in the world, but compared to the transit authority we don't have a class of people constantly leeching off our budget and making people uncomfortable at our stations.
