I've got a 2015 Kona Dew. Paid 500 bucks for it and it was very good while I used it. Picked up a motorbike so I stopped using it. I ought to get out and exercise on it though

VERY old pic/ lot has changed since but same basic parts

It's an early 90s Bianchi Advantage hybrid frame, stock bb and headset
Retrospec cranks and wheelset, 48/16
Stock brake handles with new lines and tubes n shit, Shimano brakes n off brand pads
Off brand bmx pedals
Off brand northroad bars, typically not flipped as shown, I was just tryin it out

I dont ride as much as I should :c I love this bike to death. It was my mom's old bike I grew up riding, and once it started catastrophically failing I rebuilt it into a super light single speed. I wish I didn't live in such a hilly area so I could make myself ride more.

I have a big cruiser on 29x2.125s, and a road bike on 700s, both cheapish ~$200 bikes but well maintained and decent to ride.
I was riding 50-60 miles a week until I got a promotion contingent on working a stupid number of hours, lately I'm lucky if a get 1 good ride in a month.

I have a secondhand bike (don't know the model) that was made for strength training for marathons and shit so it's retardedly heavy and the gear ratios are built more to provide maximum resistance and the tires are really wide. Given that the derailer is fucked up and won't downshift without the chain popping off and given that I live in a hilly region, I really don't use it that much unless I'm trying to get a workout.

I do wish I had a less hardcore bike to take to work or to a store but I hate going places dripping in sweat.

My pride and joy is a early 90s (??) Basso Ascot with Columbus MS tubing and full Campagnolo C-Record, not the exact bike in the pic, but close enough. Took me years to try to piece that bitch together at a relatively reasonable price point. A real dream bike that is collecting dust in my parent's basement as I didn't want to bring it to South America with me, crime is a huge issue here and I ain't going to get stabbed for no bike.

I bought a real nice locally built frame in Reynolds 753r tubing, top of the line stuff for the era. I am slowly building this up with a vintage Ofmega groupset and going to go full smoked chrome plating for added bling.

Have a shitty locally built beater that got totaled when some ass hat braked cold in front of me and busted the forks, though panto'ed Colnago, it is certainly no Colnago. Stored in a shed in the countryside now because it made me pissed to see it all bent up.

My OCD classified searching have uncovered a Rossin from the early 80s. Not much to look at, it is resprayed in this hideous glitter red paint, but Rossin was Colnago's master frame builder before he set up shop for himself, so it must be good. Priced a bit high but my only expenses are weed and classic bikes, so what the hell.

Thinking of getting a custom tourer made while I'm down here as labour is dirt cheap. Then follow the Pan American highway all the way to Peru. That may never happen, but it is nice to dream.

Most people do not hate bicycles. Most people just hate bicyclists.

There's a genuine difference, there. The bike is an inanimate object, hating it would be like hating a tree or something. Now the bicyclist is a person, and is capable of doing things that make other people hate them. Though obviously not all bicyclists do this.

You can tell before you even see em, just by what they're riding and how they look riding it ya know.

roadways suck for bicycles. where i live in canada we don't have many bike paths, and cars are supposed to give bikes a full lane, which means our mostly two lane roads turn into one lane roads, not to mention trying to make a left on a bicycle.

I don't blame either party really, but ultimately the cyclist is the one more likely to get killed so I ride on the sidewalk...

i ride where i feel safest. i ride my bike about 3 miles, i start on the shoulder of hte road riding with traffic, cut through a parking lot onto a side walk cross the street to ride into traffic so 100 yards up i can get onto the bike path. take that to the next road up then i actually typically ride in the middle of the road down this giant space where i theres double yellows on either side till i get up to the next bike path. i do my damndest to stay out of the cars ways cause im also doing this at 9 at night in a dark blue work shirt and blue jeans. i actually try to avoid side walks though. alot of cars pull up quickly and block them and if you are moving along you can get into some hairy situations.

You could tour with any bike. There is a lot of back and forth about what a good geometry is for long distance tour bikes and not a lot of agreement, and you're not going to cross the hindu kush or anything too technical. I think hybrids from the early mid 90s are a good choice. The geometry isn't too far off a purpose built tourer and they are not collectible, so you could get a TOTL one for chicken feed. Judiciously upgrade as needed.

Realistically any good frame pre-dating the 80s will be ridiculously overpriced. I am not so familiar with newer stuff, I see a lot of Taiwanese bikes for fair prices, can't comment on quality though I doubt they're terrible.

Heres my faithful steed, first road bike Ive had, picked it up for £40 two years ago now and never looked back. I ride everywhere in my city on it, but the real fun comes from exploring and adventuring on it. I take it on trains and explore the country stopping at hostels. picture is from 2 weeks ago, goddamn I love it.

I am quite a fit cyclist, but because of the nature of my work, I sometimes have to make a quite arduous commute with a fair bit of baggage, for this I have been planning to build myself an alternative electric mountain bike.

However I am a discouraged by feelings that electrical assistance is expensive. Also it has a stigma as being for the fat and elderly and mabe I should man up instead? Does anyone here have any experience with electric bikes?

I've got an old miyata 100 from like, the 70's.

When i first bought the bitch someone had spray painted her a disgusting grey,
I've since stripped her down and repainted her black and white, and called her grey.

she's too big, she weighs 11 kilo's, and i'm constantly getting ripped on by my elitist coworkers (work at your lbs) for riding her, but damn, I've done thousands of clicks with her now and couldn't be happier with my old roadie.

Here's a slick pic of her looking festive after my workmates did her up. Was a good day

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.

>>36539 I love riding on camping on my mountain bike, Camping with tent can be fun. I bought tent on marketplace and get the subscription https://www.everest.com/join-caliber . When choosing your tent, always allow for one extra person on the berth (e.g. 2 people camping, look for a 3 man tent), this means you will have plenty of space for your gear.
