Bicycle makes strange sounds – BikeGremlin

Updated: 17/02/2019.

This post deals with a topic that creates much headache to cyclists and mechanics. “My bicycle makes strange sounds”. So: what to do when a bike starts creaking, scratching, clicking, squealing or something similar?

In my experience, it’s necessary to first determine the source of the strange sounds (obviously). Once the source is pinpointed, solution is usually obvious – usually involves tightening something, lubricating, adding mounting (anti-seize) paste to a connection/bolt etc. But how to find out what’s making the noise? That is sometimes not as easy as it sounds (pun intended). Here I’ll explain the system I use when some noise seems very mysterious and source can’t be figured out.

TLDR: problems with “bicycle making strange sounds” are sometimes trivial, while sometimes frustrating. I tried to systematically process this subject, hoping it will help someone. All the details are in this article.

Bicycle Day (19th April) | Days Of The Year

Bicycle Day is fast approaching. And while we don’t think it’ll ever take off like Thanksgiving, the popularity of the event is growing by the year. However, it remains a day that’s lost on a lot of people while many others have the completely wrong idea of what the celebration is all about. (Hint: it’s not the obvious answer)

The event has grown at a rapid rate and is set to be bigger than ever in 2020 before enjoying continued development over the years to come. While some people may deem it a strange thing to commemorate, especially when they discover it’s not what they thought, there is no question that it’s here to stay. In truth, it has every right to too.

Just don’t try saying that tongue twister on Bicycle Day.

Given its name, you’d be forgiven for jumping to the conclusion that Bicycle

ONN – SF Bay Area Bicycle’s Crazy Oakland Bike Ride Through Town Video: Stop Signs, Anyone?

By SF Bay Area Bicycle on YouTube, this is a wild ride done on March 26th, 14.75 mile, 250 ft gain, midday ‘circular commute’ ride during day 10 of the COVID-19 shelter-in-place for the SF Bay Area through “Oakland East, Downtown, West, Jack London Square, Jingletown, Fruitvale. Walnut St, Foothill Blvd, around Lake Merritt, 12th St into 10th St, Center St to the West Oakland BART station, 7th St, Mandela Pkvy, 3rd St, Oak St, Embarcadero West & Embarcadero to E 7th St to Fruitvale Ave, E 12th past the Fruitvale BART station, 42nd Ave, International Blvd to 55th Ave.”

What is a Transportation Management System (TMS)

A transportation management system (TMS) is specialized software for planning, executing and optimizing the shipment of goods. Users perform three main tasks on a TMS: Find and compare the rates (prices) and services of carriers available to ship a customer’s order, book the shipment, then track its movement to delivery. The broader goals of using a TMS are to improve shipping efficiency, reduce costs, gain real-time supply chain visibility and ensure customer satisfaction.

TMSes are one of the core technologies used in supply chain management (SCM), a discipline sometimes divided into supply chain execution (SCE) and supply chain planning (SCP). They are available as stand-alone software or as modules within enterprise resource planning (ERP) and SCM suites. Typically, a TMS serves both shippers, carriers and other logistics providers. Manufacturers, distributors, e-commerce organizations, wholesalers, retailers and third-party logistics providers (3PLs) are major users of TMS software.

While some TMSes focus on
