>go on Surly's website
>see they now have a fat version of the Big Dummy that accepts up to 5.25" tires
I can't fucking stop laughing. This is the ultimate meme bike. It... I can't even fathom a more meme-tier bike. It could be useful in some situations, but it's... amusing. Surly and their fucking meme machines

Bike touring

No.1043972 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
Im thinking of doing a bike tour lasting several months, starting this summer. I don't know much about bicycles except for having used them as a local transportation tool, so I'm unsure of where to start.
I have a budget of 600-1200$ for the bike, the less the better as it will allow me to tour for longer. It could also be stolen so I wouldn't wanna ride around on a luxury bike.

I currently posess a 400$ bike, I think it is a hybrid bike, not sure. I've had it for 1-2 years and the parts have failed several times, so it wouldn't last long on a tour. Should I purchase a brand new bike or just buy new parts and put it on the frame of the bike that I currently have?
I'm also willing to sacrifice speed for longevity, I'm not concerned with moving from point A to B as fast a possible.

And some other questions, I've never used clipless pedals or anything, should I employ this on my bike for my tour? I don't know anything about bike mechanics, what skills should I learn so that I can face the challenges that will appear from crossing hundreds of miles on a bike continuously?

What's going on with Canyon supposedly coming to the USA? They keep saying SOON SOON SOON but it's already 2017 and nothing. Is it going to happen or should I just buy something else? Are they going to back out now that the US economy is about to get crashed by a drunk driver?

Hello, this is my first post on /n/
Recently my bike's tire was punctured while I was riding (a fucking radio antennae left on the side of the road penetrated right through it), so I need to replace my bike's back tire. I was going to replace the tire with the tire from my old bike, but I noticed the tires on my old bike are 26 x 1.95, and the tire that needs to be replaced is 26 x 2.10. Is that slight size difference okay or do I need to have the exact same size?

tl;dr can I replace a 26 x 2.10 tire with a 26 x 1.95 tire?
