Honda's 4 cylinders are no joke. My car just has the V6 and it is a spirited engine but, the fuel economy is trash. And the timing chain is known to have issues if you don't religiously change the oil every 3k miles (which I do)

One tiny little slip of the chain and its KA-BLAM

Where can I learn about the bike gears? (1-3) & (1-6)

What is there to know about general bike upkeep? Like checking tire pressure and making sure everything is lubricated

Are there any resources about "pimping out" and modding bikes with accessories and that sorta stuff?

there are four gears on a bike

uphill tryhard
downhill tryhard
uphill cruise
downhill cruise

the whole 12 speed thing is something that you eyeball your legs to reach your personal taste for these 4 gear designations. the cruise and tryhard distinctions work on the front and the uphill and downhill distinctions work on the back.

fuck these mouthwash spaceship bikes of someone who owns their own dental practice by the way. i don't want to share marketshare with those people. buy used 12kg vintage and don't die on it. jam the seat down and cruise going off the accentuated top brakes is my operating principle.

you guys remember mister garrison's new revolutionary form of transport from that one episode of southpark? you do not need to be uncomfortable for this gay shit.

and fuckin don't forget to carry a chain whip with you because a lot of middle aged gay men can't figure that one out

hi guys,
need some advice, im planning on moving to canada
i have lived in a couple of countries before and i feel the biggest mistake i made was not investing in a van/mobile home right away because when hostels and stuff fell through.

i have looked at second hand stealth campers. my budget is about 3-5k i have no idea what too look out for or what could be a problem getting parts for and have made the mistake before

i dont even know how european license works in canada

any help appreciated thanks

You'll be on an international driver's license until you can get it ported over to a provincial license.

People are pussies about the cold.

Most habitable vehicles by an american manufacturer are easy to get parts for. The asian carmakers don't sell lots of suitable vehicles here, so just ignore that for the most part.

you have friends here or something? the government doesn't like people with no fixed address, you're expected to have at least a paper address as a new immigrant. if you get citizenship (easily bought) you can basically do as you wish.

Hello!
My boyfriend and I are driving from Phoenix az to Seattle late August, through California. We've never been on a road trip together before, first time I've been on since an adult really, so looking for any advice. Stuff we should do, where we should camp, things to have on us, general advice, stuff like that! Trying to not spend a lot of money so camping would be preferable, but if there is something worth a couple bucks more please feel free to mention it! Any advice is appreciated!
Thanks!

I did almost that exact trip back in 2014 summer. Went up from New Mexico through Colorado, Utah, and Idaho to Seattle. Then down HWY 1 to LA and back across AZ home.

Took me a month and I spent about $1000. Cost was mostly gas and food, of course I wanted to eat all the local stuff I could try.

>Camping
I mostly slept in my car in Walmart and casino parking lots. It’ll be tougher this year since Walmart is closed at 8:30 pm with COVID. I liked being able to sleep somewhere with security cameras and bathrooms, which a lot of parking lots don’t have.

I don’t remember there being many affordable campgrounds in CA. It was expensive as fuck all along the coast so I drove through those parts rather quick. Oregon was awesome. I actually stayed there much longer than planned. Check out the tide pools all along the coast.

You mention not trying to spend much money. It can be done no problem, but be realistic about your comfort levels near big cities. That whole trip goes through expensive areas, if you want to camp at real sites it will still cost a bit. I’d say maybe look at a few couch surfing options but I think some company bought that site and fucked it all up now.

It’ll be an amazing trip, take it slow and enjoy the coast.

Hi,

What are your thoughts on traveling while corona virus is infecting the whole world? I really need a vacation, but it's probably better to stay put while this shit passes?

Not paranoid, just looking for some rational opinions.

As long as you maintain social distancing, wash your hands regularly, and wear a mask and gloves when you're going out and about, you should be okay to travel but depending on where you decide to go, you should check to see each country's COVID-19 policies.

Keeping old cars safe in the city

Hey guys! Pretty much what it says on the tin - I'm looking for some advice on keeping my old car as secure as I can.


I'm going to be moving back to the city soon, and I'd like to continue living in a hostel on the edge of the CBD. They've got free parking, and I've got a little Suzuki Carry from the late 80s that I'd love to have around.

The problem is that this van, with no real anti-security other than mechanical locks on the doors, is going to be in a parking lot that's open to the street, and kind of visible from there too. Being a cool little weirdo car like it is, I'm worried it'd be a target for break-ins. There have already been attempted break-ins in the car park before.


Does anybody have any methods for keeping their cars safe in situations like this?


It's a half-covered floor-level car park like you'd find in an apartment building, and there's no CCTV, if that helps at all.

Started with a diamondback hybrid frame($75) and added a bafang 750w mid-drive motor with 52v 6ah lithium ion battery. I have my headlight integrated, but not taillight yet. I will give a final build report when I have all of the running lights working and probably upload a video as well.

I use this to commute to work 5 days a week, 13 miles each way. I currently average about 21-22 mph following red lights and stop signs with cars present (why stop at 3am?).

i like those, ride it every day. i paid 85 and 15 for a nice bar tape. it's kind of the cheapest schwinn they made back in '86 but it pulls a good 20mph cruising speed.

>what bike
A budget city bike I got last year, it's pretty neat looking though and handles fine.
Apparently it's pretty heavy though? Noticed online when bike weight was discussed seemed to be common around about 10kg, while mine is 20kg.
>how often do you ride
Before I got this current bike I didn't really ride at all since just riding around the neighbourhood a bunch as a kid, so I don't really have any biking sense ingrained, so I've been putting off riding it as much as I would want to because I'm too anxious about how confusing it is where to ride and such. Places where there's a designated bike path is fine, but some roads just seem like bikes don't belong there at all, no reasonable option whatsoever. Been taking advantage of my current weird sleep pattern though and taking rides at night when there isn't much traffic, trying to find some sense in it all.
What I'd really want/need would be a bike buddy who has the knowhow and common sense about things that I could tag with as a bike mentor type of deal, show me the ropes, but none of my few friends rides bikes.
