What are the purposes of all the lights on the train (the one at the top) and why are the lights sometimes not on symmetrically (see pic)

Getting a bicycle for my short commute

No.1275160 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I'm currently in a situation where my home, university, and job are all within a 1.5 mile radius. I want to get a bicycle to use instead of starting up my car to drive 1 mile. What type of bicycle should I get?

I would prefer one that doesn't use gears as I don't know how to use them, but if they are really optimal, I would be open to them. My commute is relatively flat. Also, I'd possibly like to try and use it for Postmates/food delivery.

I want to convert a roadbike with knobbies to an e-bike, not an assist bike, meaning it should be able to ride on electric alone.

What is the best conversion kit to buy?

Calling Tybro

Tybro's youtube channel is good and technical, but I want to get him on the hook here.

Tybro, what do you recommend for derailleur upgrades? I want to know about the best deal on replacement jockey wheels and what the benefits are --- also, how often to replace???

I feel like we made a huge mistake going for geared hubs when air bike technology has already come this far

Hey /n/ I'm hoping you can help me out, I bought a new bike but since I was out of town, I went and had it shipped to me. I was opening it up to reassemble it (only needed handlebars, seat, front wheel) but then I accidentally had the front fork fall out. Now I'm looking at it and four metal rings that seem to have come out of it.

1) What are these rings? I thought bearings were supposed to be in there.

2) How do I put it back together properly?

Pic related, the four metal rings are shown, two of them are thin (~1cm) and the other two are thick (~2cm), and the two pairs themselves are identical (so two identical thin and two identical thick rings).

Thanks for helping a /n/ewbie.

pic related, on the left is the cap to fasten the handlebars on top (this model only has one). The four metal rings are to its right, two of them are thin (~1cm) and the other two are thick (~2cm), and the two pairs themselves are identical (so two identical thin and two identical thick rings).
