I code, play music, ride bikes, and sometimes paint. I do other things as well.

comment How to center a quick release rear wheel regularly
Well, even if it's not good for the wheel, it's unsafe. I always check if my bike is centered by riding with no hands for a couple of meters (so that imbalance becomes more noticeable), and sometimes after reattaching the back wheel I notice that it's not center. Recentering the wheel rectifies this.

Why would you need a bell when you can just be like, "hey, scuze me, im tryna ride by you or whatever."

comment Why does my back wheel keep becoming untrue?
@stevie_boy_up_there yeah, that seems pretty good. I think imma jerry rig the spokes right (I don't have a nipple wrench here) till I get to the Bikerowave to work this out proper with the tensiometer and what. Thanks, guy!

comment Why does my back wheel keep becoming untrue?
I road on it the distance to get home, get where I needed to be the next day, and then to the bike place. Probably like 20-30 miles. And what makes you doubt that I used a tensiometer? I did! I set it on one of those bad boys that clamps your wheel and place and then you spin it and see where it hits the little claw bit on the front, and you have to check the tension on like every one of those guys, and then you do the clampy bit (ie the tensiometer) to see how that spoke is doing. Then you get all his buddies in line, pull the claw in a bit, and do it some more.

That's good advice, but I didn't spend $30-$100 for the spoke + truing the first time, so I don't think I'm going to spend $50 on a new wheel.
