G’day, I’m Durianrider from Adelaide, South Australia. I first became a personal trainer back in 1999 and have trained with some of the fittest people on the planet. Ive learned a lot along the way and I run the largest vegan forum in the world with Freelee the Banana Girl (http://30bananasaday.com), and I bust my ass every single day to help people help themselves while saving the animals and the planet at the same time. I’m a high carb, plant-based vegan cyclist who gives no fucks about saying what needs to be said.

Stand up for what you believe in, or sit the fruit back down!.

Eddy Merckx won the Tour De France on a touring bike.

Krishna Kanth says:

Jay kay says:

i bought a 200 dollar road bike called MERAX…….iam not a pro cyclist, but i ride a bike really fast bc of my strong legs… The bike is perfect for me… ive had the bike for nearly 2 years snd i only had to replace the bar tape and tubes for flats… the bike is just perfect for the price

Australians and their year round riding season. I hate you guys. Come to the Midwest where it 0 degrees F in the winter. Nice video btw.

William Hauser says:

I got my road bike for 15$ from a second hand place

Yusuf Maltese says:

I have a reid osprey myself I’ve had it for 5 years so far so good it’s all about how you look after it and performance well unless your riding in tour de France then the real expensive bikes are just a wank factor that’s my opinion I’m sure others will beg to differ

Érico Schmitt says:

The topics of your videos are great, and your comments are interesting, but you kindda talk too much! you could say the same things in a 3 min video, and I’d be happier.

Converted Vegan says:

Totally agree on cadence. Rode a 100 miler with a local group for first time and my cadence was higher than most of them, although I struggled to keep up because I wasn’t used to pace. Only when climbing big hills did people notice I was able to climb better.

Alex Zander Taylor says:

So a $500 road bike is just fine for my fat ass to ride it around the block once a week? Great!

Lucas Kathol says:

“You’ll get fucking fit as fuck” 6:50

Christopher Burke says:

Conti 4000S II. Don’t care about comfort. What’s the best max pressure for performance? 185lbs

Peter XYZ says:

Power meter = $€£¥. More than my bike. I’ll settle for a cheaper cadence meter (GPS, heart, etc)

Are there cheap power meter on the market?

Fred Holland says:

I’ve been riding for 30 years. And I got to say you are right. I have had all kinds of bikes. Right now I ride a Look 566 carbon. Not one bit faster than on my steel Carrera, and the look is quite a bit lighter. The rider does indeed make the bike. I like the look. It is pretty, and that is part of the reason I got it. But the truth of the ride is that I ride exactly the same on it as I have on all my other bikes. Thanks for posting.

Francisco Galan says:

you want to go faster uphill bitch?…buy a motorcycle…effortless you Son of a bitch!..ja, ja, ja…

Youtube User says:

With roadbikes and CX bikes its pretty easy to go cheap and get something good for the money becuase you have no suspension or for xc just a 100mm fork. For good suspension you have to spend tons of money. Also roadbikes and xc bikes dont have to be as robust as enduro and dh bikes so they have great entry level bikes.

The brutal truth is something you won’t like.

Anon Ymous says:

Who is the guy in blue. He’s heavy and he grinds.

Daniel Hoyle says:

really good video mate.

Selcukb006 says:

What is the best i can get out of €250 for a bike i’m new to this. Help would be appreciated 🙂

Soul Sally says:

I don’t know if you’ve talked about this before but would you recommend a second bike dedicated to riding in rain/winter inclement weather? One that’s fitted with mudguards and slightly bigger tires, say 28s? I just bought my first road bike but am now wondering if maybe I should get a cheaper 2nd bike for crap weather.

Skate or Live says:

you have to be out of your mind or going threw one hell of a mid life crisis to drop anything about 1.5k on a road bike

Sopho Cles says:

i bet if you wanted to go on a 500 mile ride a 5000 buck bike is gonna be better than 500 buck bike – carbon stronger and more resilient.

Allah Turbo says:

Get fuckin straight to your point

Whats Wrong says:

you’ll get fit as fuck lol

Ronald Nunez says:

it’s not the bike, it’s the rider.

bbglas007 says:

alex watson says:

the answer was when he went past the guy on the Colnago at 2 mins 12 ,

Alex Kuhn says:

I rode a 2013 masi inzio ( bottom line bike) in a 100 mile and 150 mile tour with entry level with no upgrades.

Columbus Christopher says:

l ride a Schwinn 1300 Volare.
very fast light weight 25 pounds l switched to continental tires and
l love it. l grew up in the mountains so I’m used to climb. out of 20 guys there’s only 2 who can keep up with me and they ride carbon frame Super shimano bla bla bla
3000 plus grand bikes.. l respect their choices but you don’t need such a fancy expensive bike to exercise and have fun . if u can move it. 42 19 best climbing gear ratio.

Muhamad FarHan says:

What about the amount of gears you have in your casette? A 9spd sora vs a 10spd tiagra vs an 11 spd 105? i’m gonna be joining the cycling community in december and i wanna get as much info as i can first

Q Tip says:

Just bought the dawes lightning sport from bikesdirect.com. Is that a good bike?

casey b says:

Personally I love old steel road bikes. Got my current ride for 50 dollars plus some new parts I already had laying around.

Celeritus says:

Is a 1000 dollar one good for a begginer?
