Cycling in Sneakers Is Actually a Terrible Idea, Say the Experts
  • Yeah, I was looking at those but they were way more expensive and would probably result in me needing stitches. My shins are a mess already with plastic pedals lol

  • The cement that could turn your house into a giant battery
  • Sounds great, I can't wait to never hear about it ever again because that's what happens every time something amazing like this gets an article.

  • People who refuse to learn how to drive a car, why?
  • Apologies in advance, I'm not exactly your target audience:

    I can drive just about anything short of a semi-truck (when I have to drive a car, it's usually an old manual Subaru), but I still refuse to drive whenever possible: Partly for environmental reasons, partly for financial reasons, and partly because I would much rather ride my ebike or my bicycle instead.

  • How do you cook a pig?
  • Your mother clearly didn't braise you right.

  • Is it just me or do Lemmy communities tend to skew left wing? Why might this be?
    1. Probably the open source nature of Lemmy but also...

    2. Are you an American? Based on US politics, much of the world would be "left wing" when much of it is really largely just moderates. Politics have been pushed so far to the right in the US that most politicians range from far right to moderate right, democrats included. Despite all the noise far right people are making about "the left", there's almost no far left representation in US government at all. Many of the people they're talking about are just moderates and fellow conservatives that aren't right wing enough in their view.

  • I was joking, but how many souls do you have?

  • Cycling in Sneakers Is Actually a Terrible Idea, Say the Experts
  • This is why I use Squatch pedals, but I still kinda pedal toward the ball of my foot.

  • We have our own instance: lemmy.autism.place
  • No, I'm thinking about the garage/warehouse full of bicycles, skateboards, scooters, etc.

  • New 80 MPH military electric bicycle unveiled as e-bike maker opens defense division
  • 28mph is plenty fast on a bicycle for me, I'm fine with class 3. I usually ride closer to 15-20 anyways on the "fast" end, faster if I'm in a hurry and things are clear I guess.

  • Saw a nazi today
  • I'm not saying you should fuck up their ride buuut, I'm not saying you shouldn't either.

    Wink.

    We have our own instance: lemmy.autism.place
  • It's not too late to make an autism palace.

  • My existing mid-drive Class 3 ebike weights 95 lbs (43 kg) loaded. What could I replace it with?
  • Your ebike is a monster lol. Look at ebikes from the regular bike manufacturers like Tern, Specialized, Marin, Trek, etc. Ride1up makes good budget stuff too. There's Lectric as well, the One looks interesting and should be out by this Fall. Those would all be significantly lighter than your bike.

    There's kind of a point of diminishing returns with batteries in terms of size and weight so ideally, your battery should be maybe a little bigger than necessary to get you to your destinations under the worst conditions (i.e. it's freezing out, maybe snowy or muddy) but not much bigger.

    Good luck!

    Teens Are Sticking With E-Bikes Even When They’re Old Enough to Drive

    Kids find independence from their parents without the costs of driving, though safety risks remain

    Teens are taking to suburban streets across the U.S. while skipping a classic rite of passage: driving a car.

    Instead, their families are spending as much as $3,000 on electric bicycles, the battery-powered vehicles that offer the convenience of traditional bikes without the sweat or strain that comes with unassisted pedaling.

    Country folk tend to like the independence offered by their cars, so how do you get them to use public transit? The Monocab system may be the answer, as it utilizes individual on-demand pods that travel on existing abandoned railways.
