  • Largest Sprocket easiest to pedal in??

    Hello, I just took my bike into my local shop to get a rear derailleur adjustment, Now before the adjustment the smallest sprocket was the easiest to pedal in now it’s reversed where as the largest is the easiest to pedal in. Is this some kind of tactic? Thanks

  • What to wear mountain biking?

    I am going mountain biking for the first time ever with a coworker who does a lot of mountain biking. I am not sure what to wear as I do not own any gear. I am a girl - what type of shoes, shorts/pants and top should I wear so I don't embarrass myself?

    Best answer: Absolutely, positively, without a shadow-of-a-doubt...nope. If cycling reduced belly fat, I'd be skinny as a rail logging over 8,300 miles last year.

    Cycling is a cardiovascular & aerobic exercise which can help to reduce body fat all over on a PROPORTIONATE level. Cycling does NOT target one specific area of the body in that respect. Cycling will help to TONE (not bulk up) leg & butt muscles. In fact...in conjunction with cycling - if you wanna lose that spare tire - you need to work on CORE strength. Cycling does little to nothing on its own to build up those core muscles. Check out this article from a few years ago... https://www.bicycling.com/training/a2002...

  • Are tubeless tires better than tubed tires on a hybrid bicycles ?

    Best answer: Somewhat agree - somewhat disagree with answer from Terrence B. I wouldn't exactly call the FX Sport 4 an "entry level bike" - not at a $1,149.99 price tag. https://www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/bikes/hybrid-bikes/fitness-bikes/fx/fx-sport-4/p/21559/ Entry level fitness or hybrid bikes don't come... show more

I wouldn't exactly call the FX Sport 4 an "entry level bike" - not at a $1,149.99 price tag. https://www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/bikes... Entry level fitness or hybrid bikes don't come with a carbon fiber fork, hydraulic disc brakes and weigh under 23 lbs.

    According to the Trek website, the bike already comes with Bontrager Tubeless Ready rims. I'd recommend getting together with your Trek dealer to see if the tires will work tubeless also. Yes, they are less likely to go flat. They're also a pain in the butt if they do go flat. Changing a tube is a quick & easy job with a little practice.

    As far as tire size goes...700 X 28c would be as small as I'd care to go. You might (key word MIGHT) gain 2/10th of a mile per hour. You'll also lose grip while cornering, especially on a wet or slick surface.

    Most drug addicts looking to high again so they steal your bike with bolt cutters and some of those bolt cutters are really big. So how do you stop them? Not all bike thieves are drug addicts here in UK especially in London and other big cities bike thieves are very common? luckily I live in small town the most common bike owners I see people with bikes is mountain bikes 2nd most common is hybrid bike? People have extremely small chain lock and crappy cable lock I wonder how does their bike not get stolen with crappy cable lock which is les then 10cm thick? I do see some decent kryptonite 14mm or 16mm lock with long 1 or 2metres lock that can securely fit your front bike to back bike and then lock it with heavy U lock or D lock? My question is how dangerous are bike thieves and bike stealing problem are becoming and is it worth getting a bike? If thieves will steal it because I wanted to buy a full size mountain bike now I'm going for a folding mountain bike so if it's with me all the time it's going to be harder to steal? I just don't want to become the next static of bike owner whose bike was stolen and what are the chances of professional criminals do they exist and do they only steal expensive bike or any regular bike just to sell it for cash?

    Best answer: Without several closeup photos, no one can tell you a thing. The Hardrock has been made for years with varying degrees of components from poor to good. It's the 'entry level' MTB from Specialized. As another has suggested, you'll learn a lot more about the bike by simply visiting a bike shop... show more

It's the 'entry level' MTB from Specialized. As another has suggested, you'll learn a lot more about the bike by simply visiting a bike shop & asking. It would also be a good idea to have a bike shop mechanic give it a quick look for any possible problems. When you buy any used bike, you're usually buying someone else's problems.

    So couple of days ago I was completely clueless about bike frames and parts of bikes now since I done my research online thoroughly. I have found that aliminum bikes are lighter, cheaper, offer faster rides and lastly requires fewer maintenance then steel bike. I did have bmx and mountain bike in the past I never bothered to clean them after ride they got stolen.. Now I am the type of person who hates spending lots of money on degreaser, bike cleaning soap or shampoo and lubricant so I thought that since steel bikes need more care and maintaining and more money needs to be spent on caring for steel bike. And steel can be corroded then becomes rusty and useless when those metals become brownish color. But aliminum corrison is beneficial online I found out which I will copy and paste it below so your opinion thanks? Why aliminum corrison is beneficial? The terms rust and corrosion are often used interchangeably, but they’re not the same. Corrosion is a broad reference to the wearing away of metal caused by a chemical reaction. Rust is a type of mountain bike n referring specifically to the oxidation of iron or steel caused by interaction with water or moisture. So does aluminum corrode, or does aluminum rust? Aluminum doesn’t contain iron or steel so it doesn’t rust – but it is prone to corrosion when exposed to weathering and atmospheric oxygen.

Honestly I had my 3 bikes stolen in the past the first ever I bought was bmx in 2006 they were stolen.. 2 of my mountain bike I parked it in bike lock when I was in college and my locks they were really thick cable someone managed to break my lock and steal my bike... Once again I'm planning to buy a bike but I decided I will only buy folding bike but I hate the fact it's only meant for short commuting to your work and it's not that fast because wheels are small they couldn't keep up with normal cheap Road bike even if road bike was going in low speed? But I want to buy a mountain bike but decided I'm going to buy folding now I'm paranoid of bike thieves because they're everywhere with bolt cutters these dayd So anyone watched that short documentary on top from 5:00 to 8:00 the undercover police ends up breaking all kinds of lock from cable, to steel chain lock to most of them really and those locks are expensive.. So what should I do should I buy a bike and more importantly can you tell me a unbreakable bike lock by heavy duty strong bolt cutters?

So why does steel metal I have your house take longer to corrode and become rusty then your bike that is also made up of steel? And any fellow bike owners who are expert at fixing and maintaining your bike give me some advice on how to prolong my bike that is made up of steel.. It's made up of regular steel and has no stainless whatsoever So will it take 2 years or 1 year to corrode the bike parts and bike itself an I know that weather and how you maintain your bike makes it less like to corrode and become rusty? Also does vinegar and coke remove rust from steel because I've seen YouTube videos of people putting corroded and pretty rusty steel inide vinegar tub for a day or 2 and couple of hours and it does pretty good job at stopping rust.. If I clean my bike once in a month all the chains, handlebars, saddle and bike frame and then lubricate it will u it stop the corrosion and rust? If now I want to know how so give your advice please thanks? Cross CXF300 Folding 26in Bike http://www.argos.co.uk/product/6162801
