Motorist here.
The tax I pay at the pump pays for road maintenance. Meanwhile, you poor fucks insist I share the road with your slow asses.
Either chip in on paying for the roads, learn to go from 0 to 40 in under five seconds, or go find a trail in the park and ride around on your glorified children's toys there.

because my taxes pay for a bunch of shit that others use, but that I don't. i don't fucking bitch about it like a child. I accept it as a necessary result of living in a goddamned society. i don't mind paying a bit if it means that others will be better off.

if you're so pissed off about having to share the road, maybe you should go live in the fucking mountains and go off the grid so you don't have to interact with the rest of us who aren't whiny children.

also, just because a few cyclists slow you down doesn't mean that we're all out there to piss people off. there are plenty of cyclists who are just trying to get where they're going, just like you are. why should they be made to own a car and turn into a faggot like you? am i not allowed the freedom to ride my bike to work?

It's not legal to ride on the sidewalk in some countries. Also thinner tyres = more speed. Also you are a selfish gas guzzling cunt.

it's illegal to ride on the sidewalks. and if you weren't confined to a mobility scooter, you'd probably be just as pissed to see cyclists riding on the sidewalks.
it is safer for everyone to ride in the road. stop being a faggot and accept that not everyone loves cock as much as you do.

Mate here in Canada it's the law to ride on the road. Sidewalks are for pedestrians only.

Seeing as most of the people live in town, we ride on 25mm tires (that's 2.5 centimeters wide for your uneducated ass). We don't hop cubs, go on grass nor need to lose speed due to 4 inch tires.

Do the world a favour, kill yourself and send your bike to the dump

I don't have issue with bike, I fucking love bikes. I just wouldn't be caught dead on some faggoty piece of overpriced shit.

In the city, yeah it's illegal to ride on the sidewalk, and understandably so. But I commute mostly through suburban and rural areas, and when I see a ack of faggots in dark spandex in the middle of a blind turn with a 45mph limit I get pissed.

Regardless, I still say mountain bikes are best because they're FAR more practical, durable, and you don't look like a complete tool riding it.

ITT: Faggots riding 30 year old chromoly pieces of shit.

Listen little fag boys. My first bike was a Schwinn World Sport from 1988. It was awesome in 1988. Downtube shifters, Italian leather saddle, toe clips. Awesome. But it's 2016. We've all moved on. And you faggots weren't even born back then. It's ridiculous to ride these dinosaurs. But you fags aren't really riding. You are just biking to your bf's house to suck some dick. So walk instead. These bikes did their part. And they need to rest.

Nice work ruining another good bike by turning it into an inferior fixie. But hey, at least you're trendy right?

babby's first road bike... welcome to the club.

>>683778281
My argument is not that you should drive, it's that you should ride a bike that isn't for faggots, ie: a mountain bike.

>>683778838
Let me explain:
If you're on a bike in the suburbs/country, you're doing it for pleasure. Get a mountain bike and stay off the fucking road.
If you're in the city, then I have no comment.

I like old frames, they actually look nice, elegent simple machines and they ride nice.

I wouldnt touch a stiff, rattly, modern try-hard go-faster looking super-race-tech rounded edges piece of shit if you paid me.

I did the same thing around the same age and bought the same bike (2010). Make sure your second is used and high quality. You can find 3-4 year old upper-mid and top tier stuff used for slightly more then you probably paid for that Allez.

Why would you do such a thing?

>>683782719
I hope you realize nobody gives a shit. Most people who have old bikes just bought them to have a bike and didn't want to pay a lot. I got pic related for 35$, otherwise, if you're actually looking for performance in an older bike you're just retarded

Performance wise steel framed bikes aren't that much different, unless you are going to be competing with other pros it's not necessary to try to shave a minute off of your time in a 12 mile ride.

No... But I don't like fat people.

Anyway, raise your saddle height, remove the reflectors, align the QR to the frame, remove the saddle bag and pump, and get a pair of clipless pedals.

Hardly. For me, cycling and fashion don't go together. I used to race at international level. Cycling is about holding a wheel til your teeth hurt, throwing up at the end of a competitive hill climb and pissing yourself in a sprint.

Do you know this persons height, inseam, or what type of arch they have in their back?
>Remove the reflectors
Why so they can shave two ounces off? What if this person rides late in the day or at night?
>Align the QR to the frame
This effects nothing but making the bike look slightly more aesthetically pleasing.
>Remove the bag and pump.
Again, why? To shave an insignificant amount of weight off? Have you ever had a blowout without a spare tube and tools? Ever make a rim go out of true without a spoke wrench?
>Get clipless pedals.
Maybe he prefers regular pedals, maybe he is not competing with pros, maybe he doesn't want to go through that extra inconvenience to shave seconds off his time.
Get fucked dude.

Reflectors fuck with the true of a wheel. Sorry, its true

The QR should be aligned with the fame to minimize the chance of accidental release.

Clipless pedals improve riding efficiency. It's nto about racing, its about enjoyment. Do you also mock people who type with a computer instead of a typewriter if they aren't writing books? Do you mock people that have a grand piano instead of a casio keyboard if they don't play concert halls?

I do right late in the day, and Florida traffic/drivers are the fucking worst.

i don't have clip-less pedals because I'm not there yet, and I haven't wanted to spend the money just yet.

I guess to this guy we all should be pros out of the gate.

yes, thank god i don't work in a bike shop anymore because i like having a legitimate salary and, you know, a house.

Step up to the clipless dude. You will fall 3 or 4 times, then you will get the hang of it and wonder why you waited so long. Its a magnitude better than toe clips.

>Reflectors fuck with the true of a wheel. Sorry, its true
I can true a rim to about 1mm of tolerance if I want to, even on a bike with reflectors.
>The QR should be aligned with the fame to minimize the chance of accidental release.
Maybe... but you are grasping for straws here. I admit it is easy enough to and should be done though.
>Clipless pedals improve riding efficiency. It's nto about racing, its about enjoyment.
They are an extra inconvenience and the performance gain is not that important unless you are at the stage of trying to shave every last second off your times, what is important more than anything is getting good quality cardio.
I mock elitist pricks, and in the cycling community there are a lot of elitist pricks who think they are way better than they really are. You think once you spend a couple grand on a bike and buy some spandex with company logos you have the authority to look down on everyone else and tell them how to do things, often times just giving flat out bad advice without enough context (the seat height for example).
All I care about is seeing people apply themselves and keeping their heart rates up and enduring the pain, it doesn't matter what they are riding, as long as their personal times get better and they start feeling better. If someone wants to ride a mountain bike with knobbly tires for 20 miles a couple times a week who am I to judge? I might give them advice, but I will never speak down to someone and insult them like you just did. Again, get fucked.
>>
Yer remember the days when clips and straps were the only option. Remember getting to 250 yards from the finish of a 108 mile road race, hammering down on a 52x13 and pulling my foot out. 8th from a lead group of 8.
