Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I hope no new cyclists are turning to this guy for advice. He could be responsible for hundreds of morons by now.

i rather like this guy. his idioticy is mildy entertaining like most youtube videos and yet at the same time i feel for him. he wants carbon fiber pedals and has moved back in with his parents to save money cause he spends 70bucks a year on new inner tubes. he is a DJ and has a mini nigh club setup, and threw a weeding party for 10people.

he is also very worried about his "fat grams" yes the computer on his tricycle has a fat gram calc. also you need to plug in your weight to figure out the speed, its part of the math. personaly i think a BF member would be smarter than him

btw he said in ten months he went from 290lbs to 210lbs.

Riding platform pedals with sneakers isn't normal...but on meth it is.

These guys videos were in top 10 searching for frame building. Maybe it could be interesting for frambuilders to watch.

I'd hate to see what a threadless headset looks like.

That is proof, if any were needed, that indoor trainers make you crazy. I feel for you snowbound roadies.

if your tyre pressure is down, even just a little bit then you cause drag.... your rides take longer.... you wear yourself out for absolutely no reason....


This is like watching bikeforums.tv

This one is even better. Dude's on the trainer all "geared up" with his helmet on. And then you get a nice close up shot of his massive calf muscles. I love it! I subscribed to his channel.

This is why I learned to stay away from forums and just find group rides with people and learn from them. You sure as hell learn a lot more that way. This thread is garbage, and is representative of this forum as a whole sadly. Any ways, I would advise that guy in the video to find some group rides, and start asking questions.

If you ask sensible questions you get sensible answers...
