I've chosen Bridges as this month's theme.
The rules are simple:
-You must be the photographer
-One entry per month
-Try making it an image from the last year.
+1 on enjoying the ride & riding a lot.
It depends, commuting or relaxed group/solo ride, all sort of things. But racing or competitive group ride, it's "DON'T LOSE THAT WHEEL!", "BRIDGE THAT GAP!" or "DROP HIM!" 90% of the time. :lol:
I simply wash my helmet under the tap with plain white soap and a nail brush and let it dry upside down in the sun.
Last minute post...
Does this qualify as "loops"?
I prefer to carry ID and some cash always on me, not on the bike.
And if anyone sees you... you know what to do.
He's not as far off as you think...
Zip ties and O-rings aren't pretty but they work OK for computers/sensors mounting in my experience.
Some years ago, when I was 57-58, I used to do 150km+ rides at about 28kph average. Now at 63 i don't train much, 24-25kph is OK for me. As you can see, I was never fast!
Those pedals would be nice on a bike with upper wheel fairings, oval chainrings and noseless saddle.
Platforms -con denti - on my commuter, clipless on my road bike. I like to be able to commute in any shoes.
Why would I want to cycle like a skater?
+1 for a rain cape. It makes you sweat far less than a rain suit or jacket, is easier to put on/take off, really keeps you dry. But fenders are a must, and you shouldn't ride too aggressively.
Big ring front - small cog rear, vertically aligned derailleur pulleys is what I use.
Why not epoxy? It wouldn't be too difficult to drill the aluminum filling the recess once a year, as the OP needs.
Valparaiso Cerro Abajo, extreme urban downhill - this guy did it in a business suit:
That happened to Ritchey Tom Slick, Hutchinson Acrobat, Kenda and other tires on my MTB commuter after years of use, also to a Specialized Mondo on my road bike.Didn't happen to the CSTs (yet).
The tire doesn't run true, has a lateral movement. I think it's because some ply broke inside the sidewall.
My cheap CST Traveler 700x37s still have 3/4 of their tread after 11000km/2yrs. I ride about 500-600km/month. But, as others also said, my tires usually get deformed or cut before the tread is fully...
VP 196 w/sealed bearings. Inexpensive, can use toeclips, 11000 kms so far and still like new.
Also, record zombie thread?
These are much better than bungees IMO:
