Cycling Advice from the Experts

Proper Tire Pressure

Proper Bike Fit

Proper Tire Pressure

It's Spring time and everyone is getting their bikes dusted off due to the change in weather. Proper tire pressures is often overlooked... Low tire pressure will make bike riding much more difficult and result in more flats. Stamped somewhere on the sidewall of the tire will be "minimum" and "maximum" tire pressures. Always keep your tires inflated towards the "maximum" recommended pressure. Keeping the chain properly lubricated is most important too. Please don't wait till it squeaks before you think about lubricating your chain. Also, make sure your wheels are spinning freely. Make sure your brakes stop the bike (before you become Speed Racer). Most of all make sure the helmet you are putting on fits correctly. Safety First! I love cycling and enjoy watching others grow with/into a fun sport/hobby.

Proper Bike Fit

Proper choice and fit when buying a new bicycle: Road, TRI and mountain bikes all fit differently. Not all size mediums measure the same.... Rider variables such as height, inseam, flexibility, balance and overall coordination should be taken into consideration when shopping for a new "bicycle store" bike. (this doesn't apply to department store bicycles...sorry) We see far too many misinformed and or ill-informed "ebay bicycle" purchases and 9 out of 10 times it costs more to make it ride worthy/safe and it doesn't even fit its new owner. Spend some time to shop around, narrow it down to a handful of makes/models and make sure the shop/person you are working with listens to your requests and answers your questions. Test rides are of the utmost importance!!! Take notes and don't make a hasty decision.
