Posting on ghost and internal boards should now work HOWEVER, links will not while an issue with recaptcha (antispam) is worked out

Okay...NOW /vp/'s images should be restored, an interrupt to the copy left a lot out that should now be there.

Looking at picking up a Diamondback Insight 2 Performance Hybrid Bike for $250. Is it a good deal? I've never owned a bike before and I've always just borrowed my friend's extra bikes . Will be commuting around 12 miles everyday on this.

Black bar tape

No.1088979 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
When I started cycling in the late 90's black bartape was uncommon but now it's everywhere, even for the pros. I get why your avarage joe dont want to change tape everytime it gets dirty, but does the pro mechanics have some weird union thing going on?

I'm in need of advice /n/

So I just ordered a bike from Halfords

This one, to be exact. They're already building it, it's supposed to be ready Friday.

However, i've just discovered this bike which I really like the look of. Only £50 more expensive, has 30% off the price, and looks super nice. Should I just ditch the Halfords bike and get this one instead?

For what it's worth it's just for my 4 mile each way bike commute, but I wanted something decent regardless.

How do you get over the fear of leaving your bike out in the open unattended to take it anywhere, even locked up?

I would like to use my bike as a way to travel to places like restaurants, etc instead of using a car, but I just cannot get over the fear of leaving it locked to bike stops even with a few U-Locks like I have. Anytime I bring my bike anywhere, I literally bring it into the building and have to hope the people will allow it

I don't have like some carbon fiber racing bike or something, but it's definitely a nice looking road bike

Hi guys

I'm looking at getting my first hybrid bike. It'll be about 8 miles of commuting a day (4 each way), and almost always roads or pavements. Link/pic related is pretty much what i'm settled on right now but my knowledge is lacking in this so if anyone has any suggestions for me that'd be cool.

tl;dr is this an okay choice?

Is a 3 mile bike commute to work doable?

I'm 6'0, 170 pounds. Just bought an $800 hybrid bike that weighs 22 pounds. How realistic is 3 miles going to be? That's each way also, so 6 miles total, 5 days a week. The route i'm planning on taking is pretty much all flat road.

Any advice, /n/?

Bicycles being forced off roads?

No.1082750 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
This is interesting. It seems that in Europe the companies developing self driving cars are attempting to keep bicycles off the roads because they aren't compatible with robotic cars. Who do you suppose will win in this fight--big multi-national companies or a bunch of poor tree hugging hippies?

For the last six years, I have been using OpenTTD to build a working virtual replica of the UK rail network.

Ask me anything.
