I'd like to fix up this old bike a bit,
the crank keeps coming loose and I think the wheels are slightly warped.

Where would I be able to source wheels and a crankase similar to these? I've looked around a bit and I'm finding either chink shit or 3000€ boyracer parts

Ok this was posted on /out/ but I thought it would also fit this board well as it is bike-specific.
I want to do something special during this years summer holidays and the best thing I could come up with is doing a bike tour to the sea and go back home by train. The only problem is that I have never done a bike tour before, I only hike and camp in the forest. So I have a couple of questions:
1. According to google maps I would have to go about 550km. Are 5 days a good estimate?
2. I only have backpacking gear and a bike. I assume the only things I would still need to buy are proper bike bags and maybe a repair kit. I own a tent and the ususal camping equipment.
3. How am I supposed to buy stuff without leaving my bike alone? I cant just buy a lock for every single bag of equipment.
4. How much training would I need, assuming that I am in relatively good shape but a bit skinny? I dont ride my bicycle more often than once a week usually atm.
5. How does one find a good camping spot while biking? When walking through the forest I usually just go away from the path to find a lonely place where nobody is going to see me, but I will probably just cycle on proper ways without good opportunities. Do I just drive away from my road into less crowded areas in the evening?
Please share all your experience bike camping, bonus points for including pics. If you have different ideas for trips that dont force me to spend a ton of money I am also happy about it. Thank you everyone.
PS: I am living in Germany if that matters.

What is your country's most aesthetic railway line, /n/? As in has the best views and comfiest service, the sort of thing you'd recommend to tourists. Can be a functioning passenger service or a tourist exclusive one.

For the countries I've lived in
>New Zealand
Midland line aka TranzAlpine (tourist route)
No debate on this, it's one of the best lines in the world, but naturally is turboexpensive and is packed with 70 year olds on package holidays. Ignore them and it's almost like a rollercoaster though

>Scotland
Highland Main Line (passenger)
Some people will say west highland but I reckon in the winter nothing is comfier than the Perth to Inverness stretch with all the snow and rolling hills. Going from Edinburgh too would count the Forth Rail Bridge and Fife Coastal stations which are supremely comfy in themselves. I did this when I was returning home after the 'rona first went to lockdown and being in an empty LNER from Inverness was elite.

Post yours, we should make an official list

At what point did you realize that "gravel bikes" are just what replaced front suspension hybrids when male inadequacy complex concluded that a front suspension hybrid is unacceptable?

Think about it. You can't refute this.

Mavic

Can we talk about mavic for a minute? What's going to happen now? They use a lot of proprietary spokes and shit, and the prices have dropped. Is that the market responding to the possibility of parts becoming unavailable?

Also can I just say how much it angers me that when I google "mavic" it's 90% drone cancer hamplanet neckbeard shit? Fuck drones and fuck drone people. They are almost as bad as unracers.

Gonna be really interesting to study the effects here.

These street closures were temporary measures during the shutdown but they’ve made them permanent now.
