Will be using it to commute and to exercise too. It feels 180 so far.

Can you poast your bike? I'm learning this shit.

How can I learn how to fall off a bike properly? I just realized that if I crash against something, I'm stuck in the bike because the crossbar is high. I was using a city bike before with no crossbar. I felt real danger for the first time today on my first ride.

not sure if there's a way to fall off a bike properly. try to avoid situations where you might fall. if there's ever any fear, avoid riding. it's not worth it.

On streets, the vast majority bike falls will be low-siders which happen so fast that you will be on the ground before you even realize what's happening. Fortunately, these usually don't result in significant injuries (just bruises and road rash).

Good for when the salmon runs dry up and the other things. For when the sky fills russet with haze and the burning cough consumes the towns and men and women reopen rusty church doors to creak into pews not sat in with the full weight of a dread-filled town since the Reagan era, now suddenly bursting to the seams with the tearful dying, infected and cross-infecting the one and the other and we're all of us in this shit balloon together, thinking we're rising to some ever foretold new plain of existence only to find the journey popped mid-ascent, scattering the lot of us midway between dead and dying, this eternal nearness to death and the mind sickness that accompanies it, brother literally tearing at brother, red windowpaned silhouettes from countless cabins along the rivers to lofty aired condos along the Fifth, death inside them all. But the men with dirtbikes rode out and survived. And on their arms, they bore his name.

I have four bikes. My road bike is sub 15 lbs, it’s a generic Chinese frame, my cyclocross bike is a Ridley, a fat bike, and a 29” Niner mountain bike.

That bike is going to be substantially heavier than the bikes people use for knocking down KOM’s. It has straight handle bars that won’t let you maximize aerodynamics, on the trails, it won’t it won’t handle like a mountain bike, so you won’t get your highest speed. That bike is really good for commuting, you will be able to go on street and dirt trails.

TY for sharing. What part of my bike is so much heavier than yours? Aren't the wheels around the same size? But you're right about one thing, I didn't buy this bike with KOM's in mind. I will use it to get around and exercise, but I'd be afraid of getting a KOM in this city. The only place I might want to get one is here: http://bit.ly/34UqskI and even there, you will have cars and stuff, so I'll be content with getting a nice workout.

Nice bike lane.

Basically every component on that bike is heavier. People spend thousands on their bikes to drop ounces.

My Ridley is like 2 lbs heavier than my road bike and I can really tell, particularly going up hills. My top speed is pretty close, but it takes me a lot longer to get there on the Ridley. That said, I like the Ridley more than any of my other bikes because it fits perfectly, i can ride down gravel roads, on bike paths, and I can use my much more comfortable mtn bike shoes, that I can actually walk in if I get off my bike.

TY, you're a serious bike rider. Maybe I will get more into it with time. For now this is good enough.

Btw, do you have a technique to fall off the bike? I was using a bike with a lower cross bar and now this feels like I won't be able to jump to the side if I get pwned. What do you do in those cases?

And 2nd question, how do you protect your bike against theft? I'm thinking of getting a kryptonite lock and a concealed GPS.. I suppose your area is not as Mexico City.. so I will need this far more than you.

TY for the advice.

I'm not always traveling or buying shit. Have I posted about other shit I've bought?

My trip to Europe was cheap as fuck. Every flight I took between one country to another was 50 euros. That's what costs me to get from Mexico City to Monterrey. Actually, I'm wrong. I had to attend a wedding in Monterrey and it was $100 bucks vs $50 bucks from Madrid to Berlin. I didn't spend a shitload on food and I hardly drink. How is that expensive, man. You never get out of you house, how do you "watch" your money? You've said you have several properties and I assume they're not rented if you can have stuff sent there, yeah, that's called spending. That's why you have to watch you're money.

Peloton sounds boring as fuck. Nothing more fun than riding a real bike on the streets or at a cool park. Chapultepec is my #1 spot to ride my bike.
