Newer more better post your bike thread.

Winter will soon come edition.

Featuring, my amazing stack, shorter stem, lower saddle and now for the first time, schwalbe tyres as a temporary fix for progressively shittier conditions.

Post yours and tell me what's so great about it.

Fat/tubeless tires

No.1111400 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
When is it better to have tubes, and when is it better to go tubeless?

My buddy who has the same bike as me (pic related) has these massive low pressure tires and I really want to get some. They like fold into the ground and you can corner way sharper on gravel and stuff.

Microcars, people movers etc.

Are they (or can be) a viable form of transportation, missing link between full- sized cars and public transport?
Let's discuss. Discuss about 1- or 2-people capable vehicles with roofs and engines.
Both modern and historic.

Out of the Big 3, who had the most A E S T H E T I C steam locos?

>American
>huge, "dirty," very industrial looking
>designed purely with performance in mind, very little thought given to streamlining and aesthetics until the Art Deco movement

>British
>QUINTESSENTIALLY
>kawaii as fuck, glossy finishes, very conservative styling, regal

>German
>dat red-black livery, dem smoke deflectors
>sort of a hybrid between American and British locos in the attention towards being physically pleasing to the eye while still retaining exposes plumbing that gives off a very macho aura

Future of cycling?

I honestly see the bird of prey design staying around. Its not as wild as a recumbent, and more moderate designs will sell.

Next question, will there ever be new tire sizes? P much 650b or 700c. Dats it?? As a taller rider, I wouldnt mind going way bigger than 700c if it means a more plush ride, to soak up rough roads better. I know smaller wheels are easier to move, but 20" are cool for bmx and fold up bikes. I want performance.
