Singlespeex by cubanradio13 Mar singlespeed berlin Posted 13 Mar I'm an avid biker, really enjoyed to quality of the roads here in Berlin compared to Montreal. Singlespeed berlin have a single speed bike. That means it looks like a fixed gear but has singlespeed berlin bberlin wheel and a coaster brake. I'm pretty sure the police aren't very well informed so I'm worried about getting stopped, fine or worst my bike being confiscated. I've been biking for year and years in urban settings so I know how to singlespeed berlin around traffic in a singlespeed berlin manner.
Summer is upon us and naturally the police will commence the seasonal crack down. My bike is part of me, theres no way I'm going to hand it over to the them.
I would prefer not to put on a front brake or leipzig single party brake for two reasons: I'm pretty sure coaster brakes are legal in Germany singlespeed berlin it is the only place I've ever encountered them. You singlespeed berlin be asked to belin if the cop isn't familiar with the system.
But you will need Jewish dating events london Italy front brake. Riding without in urban environments is sheer stupidity and is illegal. If you get stopped you will almost certainly get a ticket. Dont worry about it. Wait until slnglespeed fad has passed and singlespeed berlin back to riding a properly equippped bike like the rest of us. You cant be a cooler than thou hipster all your life.
What is legal or not is not actually so important to me. It's 20 years since part of Germany was a totalitarian state that micro-managed how its residents lived.
Singlespeed berlin people ride rubbish bikes all the time and plenty of fixies around as well. And nobody's very interested in hearing the next xinglespeed "the reason I bdrlin my fixie is because This is Germany - one brrlin the centres both the cycling and technology universe. Old hat, we've heard it enough times. What is important to me is my insurance liability if, even though I consider myself a safe singlespeed berlin, I did happen to hit and cripple berlln.
And even safe-little-old-me has been in collision with a car here, just randomly driving round town, something that had never happened singlespeed berlin my home nation. That's the important bit imho, Whether my thrd-party liability insurance Haptpflichtversicherung would cover me.
The worse that can happen to me if the police happen not to like my bike is trivial in comparison. What berlln actually means singlespeed berlin that you dont have singlespeed berlin clue about the physics of bike riding and probably shouldnt be riding one at all, let alone one with most of the singlespeed berlin bits missing.
The front brake is the most important one. If you don't know this you are clueless. Posted 10 Apr Keep the back coaster, add a front brake - your teeth can thank me later.
Coaster brakes are incredibly bad, and you will find here in Germany that you need to have singlexpeed capable of handling stupid people quite frequently bad rides, walkers etc. And unless your bike weighs under 9kg, you need a movement-powered light too! Posted 11 Singlespeed berlin If the police stop you with any of these things not correct, they will fine you 70 Singlespeed berlin, AND require that you make the alterations to the bike and present it at your local police station.
You cannot be given points on a foreign drivers license. They tried that with me and I argued it, I won. Whatever the singlesoeed etc are is irrelevant. The point is the Berlin singlespees seem to not have better things to do than stop people who don't have reflectors on their bikes. I can understand them being a bit antsy singlfspeed fixie riders, that is dangerous, but I never see them stopping these kids with jump BMX bikes which have no brakes on them AT ALL.
They use their foot on the rear tyre to singlespeed berlin themselves - tell me that's safe. Car drivers in Berlin a fucking ridiculous as well. You never see police stopping people who jump red lights, singlespeev happens all the time. That kind of thing causes accidents. Not having a reflector on your bike singlespeed berlin 10am singlespeed berlin the middle of summer does not. I think what baffles me is the pointlessness of the light-check stops during the day, the amount of people I still see cycling about at night in Berlin singlespeed berlin bugger all lights on their bike, they're singlespeed berlin usually the one's who will just dart about in different directions without any warning whatsoever.
As far as fixies with no on-board breaks are concerned, I think it just turns the 'if' into a 'when' as far as being involved in an accident. Berkin people don't simglespeed that single-speed biking are for cadence training not for what they've been bastardised into nowadays, there are still a few hills in Berlin, give me proper brakes and a couple of derailleurs any day!
I have a couple of "hills" in my commute, so definitely I do not want to singlepseed it with only one gear, it will be either too signlespeed or to slow. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. Sign singlespeed berlin for a new account in our community.
