  • If I was to remove the seating post or the handle post on a bicycle?

    and filled this with water. Would the water come out and if it didn't would it rust from the inside? What about if filling it with sand would this work too?

  • A buddy of mine hit a homeless person on a bicycle with his car going home from work....?

    So I have a friend of mine who just called me up and told me that he hit a homeless guy coming out of the parking lot that he works at.

    So I have a friend of mine who just called me up and told me that he hit a homeless guy coming out of the parking lot that he works at. He was turning left and was looking left to wait until traffic subsided. There had never been any kind of bicycle traffic on that street before is what he told me. Anyway, he said he pulled out and immediately saw a homeless guy pedaling past him on a bicycle. He quickly hit the brakes and didn't even barely touch the homeless guy. Got a bit of a dirt scuff on the front of his car from the homeless guy's leg, but he didn't injure the biker. In fact, the biker got back on his bike and took off after telling him that he should whoop his *** for not watching where he was going. I agree. But now my buddy is worried because the homeless guy left the scene without wanting any information, or wanting any kind of money. He said there were no physical ailments involved and the homeless man literally got back on his bike and rode off after talking to Chris after a few minutes. Didn't want any information or anything. Chris got back in his car and went home. He's worried that he shouldn't have left, but also didn't leave until after the homeless man left. Did he do the right thing and, if not, what should he do? There's really no way to track down the homeless man, but his bike wasn't damaged at all, nor was the man otherwise I'm sure he would have been asked for the man's information, but he just got back on his bike and rode off.

  • What is the average mountain bicycle speed?

    Is 11 mph uphill average and 20 mph uphill maximum a good bicycle speed? I’ve measured it on a 1,5 mile town road 3 times (1 per each day) and can’t hit any higher. Then I tried accelerating on a flat 300 m line and failed to hit anything higher than 26 mph. Also this mountain bike of mine has a tendency to stop accelerating past 20 mph regardless of its good condition (been repaired a week afo). It kinda hits some kind of a wall and it gets more and more exhausting to move your legs and the bike becomes much less responsive and hardly accelerates at all. Is that my poor skill or what?

    I haven't ridden a bicycle in over 15 yrs but would like to start so I could get into better shape and lose some weight. I would like to get a bicycle but am not sure what to get because there are so many options. I'm going to be riding this around town on roads or side walks and traffic where I live is not a problem. What is your suggestion on a bicycle? I don't want to spend too much. So, I thought maybe a bike from Walmart or Target is good but now sure about that.

  • Is it possible to ride a bike as fast as a car?

    I know you can't run as fast as a car but if you ride a bike, can you at least ride 40-60 mph on the local streets? I'm not talking about the highway. I believe that if a person a pedal a bike 40-60 mph consistently than he/she use a bike instead of a car.

  • Cycling fitness question for a 41 year old?

    When I was younger, around 19 years old, I used to be fairly fit and would cycle 70 miles in a day without issue which I did once a week. From the age of 20, I gave up the active lifestyle and opted to spend my days at work, in the pub or anything else of little physical value. Now I’m 41 and I want to get fit... show more
    When I was younger, around 19 years old, I used to be fairly fit and would cycle 70 miles in a day without issue which I did once a week. From the age of 20, I gave up the active lifestyle and opted to spend my days at work, in the pub or anything else of little physical value. Now I’m 41 and I want to get fit again through cycling so I bought myself a mountain bike. I’m just over 6 ft 2” and weigh 17 stone and of fairly large build. Im not fat in appearance, but I could do with losing some pounds, like about 28 of them. Thing is, i’ve been out a few times over the last week on my bike and tackled some uphill off road trails. Each one was about 3 miles but I feel really tired when doing the long inclines. In my mind I feel like I’m still 19, but in reality my body isn’t anywhere near the same. My thigh muscles burn and I get out of breath to the point where I have to stop and take a short break when half way up. Despite this, I’m told that I will get my fitness levels back if I keep trying but I have no idea how much, what type and how long exercise should be to build up without harming myself. When will I notice fitness improving? What can I do to assist, such as riding styles, diet, etc..? How long will it take, etc? Any advice would be really appreciated Thank you

  • I notice the Touring of France bicycle race is on now?

    Best answer: Well... It is a race between professionals, which means that they are payed to race. So I suggest you start by starting with approaching all the team owners, asking what they’d charge for renting out their whole team incl support for a few days - I assume you won’t be needing the whole duration?

    Best answer: Well...
    It is a race between professionals, which means that they are payed to race.
    So I suggest you start by starting with approaching all the team owners, asking what they’d charge for renting out their whole team incl support for a few days - I assume you won’t be needing the whole duration?
    If you offer them 200 000 USD/day, I reckon they will start to listen.
    Then ask the race Organization, which is also a commercial Corporate entity, ask them for their costs to close the roads, divert traffic etc to recreate a few stages.
    Might not be that bad if you pick one of the famous climbs. Mount Ventoux or Col du Tourmalet as Examples. Those routes don’t see any commercial traffic, and are probably the easiest to get permission to use.
    Still, I don’t think they’ll be willing to talk business for much less than one million/day.

    Cheapest and simplest is probably to book into a hotel that offers extended concergiere services. Request a wide-screen tv, a dvd-player and the race on disc.
