Every day. I hate it.
It's slow, tiring, painfully boring, uncomfortable, inconvenient, dirty, stressful and dangerous in traffic.

To make everything worse bicycles never work right, not even when they're brand new. Something's always fucked. I poured tens if not hundreds of hours of work into the pieces of shit. Useless.
So many wasted lonely evenings spent hunched over and covered in grease. I shed tears and blood trying to make the mechanisms properly work in concert. Doesn't matter, something's always fucked.

Just thinking about having to adjust rotting hub bearings or gears again makes me want to scream. It's all going to be out of alignment in a couple of days anyway.
It's pure torture. Life is pain.

I guess he has only ridden an el-cheapo bicycle assembled by a 14 year old Walmart part-timer. Bicycles there are never good.

Your country probably makes shit bikes then. Get a decent imported one if you can.

I just learned that there are folding bicycles...
>> No. 33032 [Edit]
Here folding bicycles used to be more popular than normal ones. No one ever needed the folding function so they gradually went away. They're good for travelers but suboptimal for everyday use.

Bicycling is haaaaard
>> No. 33306 [Edit]
A lot of places in the US don't have good infrastructure for biking. If you try biking in most cities you're putting your life on the line since there are no barricaded bike lanes separating you from the road and all it takes is one unattentive moron to crash into you.
>> No. 33307 [Edit]
When I was driving, I saw a car turn and hit a bicyclist as he was midway across the street. I stopped and asked him if he was well; he was, and then he told me it happens often. Scary stuff.
That aside, before the accident happened, I bemused myself with the thought of the driver being foolish enough to turn, and then it happened. Perhaps my wizardly powers are already manifesting themselves?
>> No. 33309 [Edit]
I would but my country and my area in particular is not suited to it, there are no bike trials at all and to leave my town to go to the bigger one where most things are I would have to bike through country roads which also don't have trials and would be dangerous to myself and inconvenience others.

I like bike riding but it's harder than it should be for legal reasons. Streets are dangerous, sidewalks can be prohibited, bike lanes might not even exist in some areas, and grass is sometimes prohibited too. Depending on where you live, you could be fucked if you want to ride your bike anywhere other than an established bike trail. Taking it to only a bike trail can ruin the fun of having one in the first place since the freedom is then gone.
I ride mine through suburban areas and on sidewalks when I can so I can avoid streets as much as possible, it's just too dangerous. It doesn't help that the road is torn up pretty badly in some areas here. I still enjoy it but I don't like the obstacles I have to deal with. Not to mention people can just pull out some bolt cutters and speed off with your bike.

Maybe after a few hundred more deaths the rest of U.S. cities will get bike lanes too

Reminder that Netherlands had to WORK to make their urban centres bicycle-friendly.
>> No. 33617 [Edit]
Bikers annoy me because they can't decide whether they're pedestrians or vehicles and switch based on whatever is convient for them. They'll go on the road and shit and sometimes either ride on the outerskirts of it(still not enough room for drivers to go past them quickly), or right in the middle. In urban centeres, it's even worse. I was in Denmark and they annoyed the fuck out of me.

They might be switching to avoid getting hit by cars in cases where there isn't a clear bike lane (or the bike lane is poorly placed). Although I'm not sure how the infrastructure is in Denmark.
>> No. 33619 [Edit]
They should bike on the fucking grass if there is no lane, and get off of their bike when going through a crosswalk. I don't live in a city, so my perspective is of a suburbanite.
They have a great reputation for it.

The three types of bicycles are comfort, speed and mountain.
This is one for comfort.
* wide seat
* upright riding position
* high handles
* lowered frame-bar for easy mounting & dismounting
* usually comes with a basket in the front

Bicycle is a ticket to ride...
>> No. 34060 [Edit]
sometimes when biking the safest place to be is in the middle of the car lane
