What's the point of a rear turn signal? It doesn't matter to the person behind that I'm turning, that's what the break lights are for.

Covid Craigslist Crisis edition

>I want to buy a new bike. What should I watch out for?
Don't buy Wal-Mart garbage.
Don't buy department store garbage.
Beware of amazon and alibaba garbage.

>Should I buy from Bikes Direct?
If you are clueless enough that you need to ask, no. If you have no mechanical ability, no. If the alternative is walmart, maybe. Ask first.

>I want to buy a used bike. What should I watch out for and where should I buy?

Craigslist is good for old bikes. is good for used modern mid- to high- end mountain bikes.
Ask in /bbg/ if uncertain.

Be aware that a used bike will need some repairs and adjustments. The most likely parts to need replacement are tubes, tires, brake pads, and chain. Chains are a wear item. Inspect all of these things as well as sprocket teeth, brake performance, shifting performance, and check bearings (bottom bracket, headset, and wheel hubs) for play, and check wheels for wobble. If there is a lot wrong with the bike, you may have to put a lot of money into it for parts, and money or time for repairs.

>What size bike should I buy?
The right size.

I fucking hate the UCI. Their gay arbitrary boomer rules have so severely limited the bikes we have access to as consumers. Bikes like pic related are stiffer, more aero, and much more comfortable than the 100 year old double diamond design. Bicycle companies won't produce something that won't be used in a real race like the TDF or Giro. Also, the upright position for bicycles is so inefficient and outdated for recreation cyclists.

Future of bicycle industry

Why do you hate the future /n/?
Would you like to get back to the caves? Are you a luddit? Or a commie? I hope you're not women hating incels too.

This marvellous full suspension machine is made of garbon and weights and costs the same as you're typical enduro sled. But with this one you can do anything an adult male or female would want to. Commute, explore, tour, race or have fun. Anything.

Give me a reason why I or anyone else shouldn't consooom and buy this with hard earned money.

Friends, comrades. When will the good old space Lada finally meet its equal, its worthy successor?
