Are roadies the worst of our kind?
Thinking they are the shit, while being just shitty? Arrogant, self-absorbed, entitled, dangerous and just plain obnoxious, powerbar-munching, penis displaying gearhead faggots?Most of my niggawtf stories happened with rodies/freds. They dont even have the basic road safety equipment because muh grams and disrespect traffic laws because muh speed.
They are equivalent of chopper riders among bikers or Audi drivers among cagers. Just the worst.

Can anyone who uses all of the certain equipment for an accurate "calories burned" reading for cycling tell me how close and accurate MyfitnessPal's "calories burned" reading is after inputting their stats?
For instance, take your last ride, assuming you are confident that the equipment you use gives you a very close and accurate calories burned reading, input your ride into the link below so we can tell how close or far apart the readings are. I'm looking for those who specifically use HRM's and power meters and all that stuff for the most accurate readings.
Now input that same ride here:
Search for "cycling" and choose between the 5 base options:
>10-12 mph, light
>12-14 mph, moderate
>14-16 mph, vigorous
>16-20 mph, very fast
It will ask for your weight and how many minutes of riding you did of the 5 base options to calculate how many calories you burned.
Compare the two readings, and post results
DIY puncture resistant bike tires
51 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I'm fucking sick and tired of getting punctures almost every day riding to and from work, on a mixture of road, concrete slab bikeways and occasional gravel. All scattered with broken glass and teeth and ghetto shit. This could either be alleviated by buying a set of 26 or 27 inch rims with some hybrid bullshit tires which I hate, or buying gatorskins which eat too far into my boozefunds.
So I'm doing The Thing. The Thing that I'm sure you've tried yourself sometime before. Do It Yourself puncture-proof ghetto-rigging of things to the existing tires or tubes to put an end to this faggotry once and for all.
Any tips? Any pointers?
Picture is a length of heavy-duty pallet banding tape which I believe is made from nylon. It's around a millimeter thick, a centimeter wide, and flexes enough to loop around in on itself but not flex side to side. I'm going to attempt to make a shield between my inner tube and a pair of maxxis detonator 700's with it.
