    Looking to get a bike for excerise, what are some things I could do to ensure the bike is ready for rough terrain or jumps? I hear a lot of bad reviews from walmart bikes, but my budget is too low even a walmart bike is expensive for me. I'm just looking for bikes that won't have easily bent handle bars or wheels, that could take a beating and survive to some extend.

  • Can i use a quick link to repair a bike chain?

    Best answer: Sure. But (unless it's a Shimano chain), you can also close the chain again with a "chain breaker" (bicycle chain tool). Just push the pin back in.

  • Is it safe to ride your bike in Los Angeles and surrounding areas during the day time?

    Best answer: I never had a problem in LA, except on Sunset Blvd at night! Narrow/curvy road with fast traffic. I just crossed the road and pushed my bike on the dirt walking path until the road got wider.

    Best answer: A) WTF country do you live in?

    B) Bicycles are legally defined VEHICLES.

    C) It's against BOTH state & local laws where I live. "(1) No person shall ride a bicycle upon a sidewalk within a business district;" http://www.modot.org/othertransportation/bike_ped/documents/mo_bikelaw_120505_000.pdf From St. Louis... "2.

    D) It's SAFER on the streets. People backing out of a driveway or pulling out of an alleyway simply don't LOOK for cyclists on a sidewalk. Want to see how it's done right? Watch the YouTube video...

  • Bitrate of the new Eurosport Player?

    I have found that the new Player doesn't have an option to adjust the bitrate. It always runs at the highest bitrate. That's not good news if you're looking at a metered device such as mobile phone. Have someone found an option to reduce the rate somewhere?

  • Can i put a 29 in wheel on the front and a 26 inch wheel on the rear?

    Best answer: Whether the parts will go together depends on the specifics. Is the steerer tube of the new fork the right size (length and diameter, straight or tapered) for the frame?

    Best answer: Whether the parts will go together depends on the specifics.
    Is the steerer tube of the new fork the right size (length and diameter, straight or tapered) for the frame?
    Do you have or are willing to buy a fitting headset?
    Next thing is If the bike will ride well enough.
    If the frame was originally made for 26", with 100 mm travel, then it will ride quite a bit higher in the front. Fork angle will become slacker. It'll steer slower.
    Another thing is if the parts will survive.
    The slacker fork angle will put more stress on the fork and the headtube/downtube junction.
    It is likely that it'll hold, but not guaranteed.
    If the frame was originally a 29" FS, then a smaller rear wheel will lower the bottom bracket, AND slacken the fork. More risk for pedal strike.

  • How often should I ride my road bike?

    Best answer: The most important parts of your bike to clean are the chain. the chainrings, the derailleurs and the cassette. A bit of dirt on the frame doesn't matter, but dirt on moving parts can cause wear. A 10 km ride is not very far, I just got back from what I consider to be a short ride, 56 km. Before my next ride, I... show more

  • Can gears be fitted to a single speed bike?

    Best answer: Swapping in an internal gear rear wheel - with or w/o coaster brake is usually doable. Both SRAM and Shimano offers models with full length housing that can be zip tied along the frame tubing. If it's a department store kids' bike, expect a wheel alone to cost as much as the bike, or more. Some attention... show more

    Some attention needs to be given to axle width, anti-rotation washers, appropriate sprocket size and chainline.
