    What's your plans for next month?

    Watching some of the previous threads' video about some wooden scooters I decided to make my own. I have a trolley from a supermarket so wheels are already there. As for July, well I use my bike to go everywhere so I will just continue to do that. It is pretty hot here in Serbia so I usually use...

    Health benefits of cycling

    Cycling is one of the best exercise around actually. Not only you do your cardio workout which is essential for your general health, heart, blood vessels, the whole biorhythm of our bodies but you also work your muscles in a great way. Legs, but and stomach are three areas most affected and by...

    Wooden bike race

    This is some kind of a tradition traditional race. Their bikes look very tribal to me with faces and they have similar clothes. It does look interesting and it just gave me an idea to make one of these bikes for me. This is a scooter actually, I am not sure it qualifies as a bicycle but...

    Worst cycling accident?

    I already explained this in some similar thread. I was in a car accident recently and I lost my front wheel in the process. It wasn't my fault but the guy in the car could not see me although he was careless and driving pretty fast for the given street. He stopped the car and approached me to...

    Is this an anomaly?

    You can fix that easily and fast actually. Just flip the bike over and loosen up those bolts that hold the wheel, adjust the wheel and tighten them well this time. If this is not helping your wheel is probably dented in some crash or something similar. I hope it is the first scenario because in...

    What is your worst cycling experience?

    It was probably an accident I had recently. A car hit my front wheel with its back ones. I have no idea how I managed to escape a head on collision but I did. My front wheel fell off and I hurt my groins and my chest region. It sounds worse than it was but nevertheless it is the worst experience...

    Cycling Playlist - Best Music To Ride To

    I was writing about this in a similar thread but it was about whether we should ride our bikes and listen to music or not. I am not really for that option. I think it can be dangerous but sometimes I use my phone speaker on very low and I enjoy the music I like. Recently my play list has a lot...

    Bike without pedals

    I guess you are using the momentum of your running and then just let it ride which is kind of okay until you have to go up some hill. I think when that happens it is harder than walking up the hill. Too many important issues like where do you put you feet or legs or why it looks like you are in...

    Fitness, or lack thereof

    Take it easy of course. Strength, stamina and cycling power will come with time. You cannot expect to have that over night. You go slow and overtime results will be there if you are constant in you training routine. Remember that it is crucial, especially in your age, not to strain yourself...

    Bikes without chains.

    I would guess it is a single gear bike or it has a system of transmission unlike everything I saw. It really looks interesting and I can see myself owning this bike for several reasons. I would like to ride it around the city because sometimes my bike leaves stains from the chain on my shins and...

    Who has the oldest bike?

    My bicycle is a bit of an urban legend among my friends and neighbours. It was bought to me in 1990 and I couldn't ride it since I was only three but I sit on it and was pushed by my father even then. It is still with me after everything that happen recently. We have a bond. it was stolen during...

    Banana seats!

    I do not like banana sits or maybe I do not like the bikes that I rode that had these sits. They were not comfortable at all with the steering wheel way to broad and high. I hope that you know what type of a bike is that. I like those sits that have an anatomical shape and a thin layers of some...

    Bike cam, gps, cycle computer device

    A good idea. I think that i would like to use it although I am not a big fan of this combination. I mean I removed everything from my bike, bumpers, the leg and even the bottle. GPS is useful though and even camera can be of good use if you are making some videos for your you tube channel. This...

    Bike limiting you?

    Of course it is limiting me, It has been stolen, treated badly when stolen, after that I found it and was hit by a car. it is still rolling but it could go much better. I feel I am going too slow for the force I am using while cycling. I managed to repair some things but I really need a new...

    Is cycling ruining your relationships?

    I know a fellow who was having these problems. He had a really expensive bike and he kept it very well. He had a place on a wall for it, it was near his bed. He never had time for his girl at the time and I believe they split because he was more concentrated to cycling than to her. I am not sure...
