Chinese Carbon Bike and Cheap Operation

Chinese Carbon Bike and Cheap Operation

Chinese carbon bike and cheap operation – Friends, today I want to share with you my impressions of the Chinese carbon fiber, which I bought last year for my great Bianchi Kuma. I’ll tell you a little about how and where I purchased it, and how it showed itself during a year of operation. You will also find out if it is worth buying carbon from China.

Economic Operation

If you really want to save money, learn to service your bike yourself. To get started, you need a good set of hexagon, something like angular with handles, or even simple split hexagons, which are much more convenient to work with than regular multitools. Of course, they are not interchangeable when traveling, but they are not very convenient in the workshop. The corners will become your main tool.

The more complex chinese bikes become and the more components require specific tightening forces, the more important it becomes to get your own torque wrench. For example, the need arises when you have a machined aluminum stem and carbon handlebar, and you do not want to pinch it so as not to damage it. The stem usually indicates a tightening torque of 5 N.m (Newton / meters), just insert the wrench and look at the torque indicator. This way you can be sure that everything is clamped correctly and there will be no problems.

There is no doubt that the most perspicacious of you will find something to add. Feel free to leave your tips in the comments below this article. And that’s all, bye everyone!

Mountain Bike Operating Tips

Mountain Bike Operating Tips – Switching to tubeless wheels will require an initial investment, but the benefits are substantial. You can ride with less pressure, but with more grip. Also, if you ride on trails with thorns or sharp stones, the chances of puncture are significantly reduced compared to using conventional cameras.

Tubeless patches

When you have a hole or cut in your tubeless tube, it may seem like you need to luxuriate on a new one. But now several companies are offering tubeless patches. These are either small worms that need to be tucked in from the outside, or patches from the inside. Both of them often live to the very end of the tire.

A stuck seatpost

This tip will not only help you save money, but also prevent a big problem when trying to pull a carbon seatpost out of your frame. In case you weren’t aware, the carbon post sticks to the inside of the carbon frame, just as it sticks to the inside of the aluminum frame.

What to do about it? It’s simple. You need to apply some special paste to fix the carbon parts to the tube or seat. It will help secure the seatpost and keep you from sticking to each other. Believe me, this can be very unpleasant.

Protective film

Protective film (like oracal) or special decals are a great addition to your mountain bike. It will not allow any pebbles and cables to spoil and wipe your frame. For example, this will help keep the top feather from dangling from the chain. Also, stickers in those places where the cables touch the steering tube will not be superfluous. It can even be glued to the top tube where you rub against the frame with your knees.

Economical Mountain Bike Operation – In this article, we’ll walk you through 10 helpful mountain bike operating tips to save you money on maintenance. Perhaps, the following recommendations are already known to many cyclists, but beginners, most likely, still do not know a lot. Let’s figure it out.

1. Keep the bike clean

If you immediately put your mountain bike down after a dirty ride and symbolically sprinkle it with “vdshka”, then you run the risk of discovering seized bearings in a couple of days. Complete cleaning with degreasing and rinsing with soapy water will keep your bike in good working order for much longer.

2. Dry the chain

So, you’ve got your favorite bike cleaned, what should you do next? Take, for example, an old cotton T-shirt, because it is perfect for wiping dry not only the chain, but the entire bike. Wipe moisture off the chain to keep it from rusting, removes any remaining dirt and prepares it for lubrication.

3. Lubricate the chain

After wiping, apply lubricant to the chain near the system, away from the brake rotors. Why lubricate the chain at all? This prevents the chainring and cassette from wearing out too quickly and also extends the life of the chain itself. And riding on a lubricated chain is much more pleasant than on a dry one.

4. Pen protection

A great and very cheap way to protect your lovely is to cover the bottom feather with something. the chain constantly hammers against it and damages the paint. To do this, you can buy a feather protector or, if you are very economical, take an old bicycle tube, cut it lengthwise and wrap it around the feather. After winding the camera, secure the ends with ties or tape. An excellent collective farm will come out!

Special Design of Cruiser Bike

Special Design of Cruiser Bike

Special Design of Cruiser Bike – Beautiful large rudders are provided by the designers as compensation for a more direct landing. As you straighten, you move away from the handlebars, so the length of the handles is obvious. The controls are a little confusing at first, but you can gradually get used to it. It’s not usual because the pivot point of the handlebars is removed and the arms are slightly bent compared to mountain bikes, much like a motorcycle. The longer the handles, the more unusual the fit, but cruiser bike are quite flexible in geometry and design options. They are large and not designed for jumping or climbing stairs like hardtails.

Therefore, the strength of the frame, resistance to impacts is not so important, although this is not a trifle, because cruisers are large. But that’s why we get such an unheard-of variety of geometries, a play of imagination in which designers can not limit themselves. When developing the design of hardtails, such liberties are not allowed. The departure from the classic triangle must be justified and provide certain advantages.

The Weight

The weight of the cruisers is not a parameter to pay attention to. They are large and therefore heavy. So don’t even dream of loading them into your trunk with ease. Although they are not much larger than the size of hardtails, and sometimes even the same, the large handlebar and sweeping frame do the trick.

This is where I will end this post today; and in the next article I will tell you how to choose the right cruiser and what you should pay attention to before buying. If you have any questions, do not hesitate, write your question in the comments below. And that’s all for me, see you soon!

Design Features in Cruiser Bike

Design Features in Cruiser Bike

Design features in cruiser bike – The bike is quite heavy in design. It is most convenient for driving on city smooth roads. Developers try not to chase low weight and most often offer frames made of “hi-ten” steel with 1-3 speeds on such a bike. There are also advanced models made of aluminum, but at a higher price and with a large number of speeds.

The cruiser bicycle frame is designed in such a way that it easily allows for a straight and comfortable landing. Bicycle accessories are also designed to be as comfortable as possible. Of these, the following can be distinguished:

wide and straight steering wheel;
wide leather saddle;
trunk, basket;
full-length wide wings;
chain cover;
step.

Women’s and men’s cruisers, respectively, have different designs and designs. Women’s bicycles, as a rule, have a lowered upper tube in the frame design, which is parallel to the lower one.

Frame geometry

I would like to say a few words about geometry. Interestingly, on cruisers, the pedals are a short distance under the seat. For example, in mountain bikes, the position creates a certain fit – the body leans forward slightly to reduce wind resistance, while the back also moves forward. Thus, when hitting obstacles, there is a natural shock absorption by the body – you bend and straighten.

On cruisers, the bike pedal are generally extended forward, and the angle between the wheel, seat and system is sharper, which means the body moves back. At the same time, you will have the feeling of a comfortable fit; in which the head does not tilt, but looks straight ahead. This system has a significant plus, for which beginners; and girls choose such bicycles for themselves – the ability to put their feet on the ground during a stop without getting up from the saddle.

Usually, for this, beginners lower the saddle, which in turn increases the stress on the joints. By analogy, this is like walking in single file – the legs do not fully extend and do not rest, the joints are in tension all the time. An acute angle solves this problem.

What is Cruiser Bike? – Greetings to all blog readers! In one of the previous articles, I told you in detail about the city bike, about its design features, about its advantages and disadvantages. Today I want to talk about another variety of these bikes, which are now called cruiser bikes.

Why are these bicycles so special and why do they have such a name? Now we will try to understand everything with you, but we will start a little with a background and an understanding of what a cruiser bicycle is in general.

Cruiser history

A cruiser is a type of city bike that is also designed to travel within a city on a flat surface. It is distinguished by its unique construction and design, as well as by a low (from 1 to 8) number of gears. Cruisers are most often preferred by lovers of classic authentic style, as well as comfortable suburban and city driving.

The first appearance of cruisers can be attributed to 1933; when the well-known firm Schwinn replenished its lineup with a bicycle with a heavy; and very strong frame, on which reinforced upper tubes were installed, and this bike also had inch balloon tires. These bicycles got the name “cruiser” thanks to the motorcycles-cruisers, which looked like them very much.

From 33 to 60 of the last century, these bicycles became widespread and very popular. Every year they got better and better, underwent constant design changes and thus became more and more like the original motorcycle.

But after the peak in popularity of these bikes, with the release of more modern; and new models, the popularity of Schwinn began to decline. The popularity of cruisers returned only in the 90s; when many strong and new brands appeared on the market; such as: Kustom Kruiser, Nirve, Electra, Gary Fisher, etc. Today, these manufacturers are very carefully working on design; and construction within the framework of the classic urban the appearance of the cruiser.

The Bike Trip in The Village

The Bike Trip in The Village

The Bike Trip in The Village – Then I noticed that the phone was discharged to 15% (RunKeeper was eating up the battery + 3G and GPS very much). Fortunately, I took a power bank and immediately connected the phone to it. And I also noticed that the water in my hydrator was running out, at most half a liter and I had to find some kind of stall to buy water and refuel it.

During the halt, I began to ponder my next steps. The thought of moving in the opposite direction already seemed to me a boring undertaking, and it did not inspire me at all to go along the same road. Therefore, I decided to take the bull by the horns, collect all the will and strength not in a fist, but in the legs and ride the so-called “Kakhovskoye ring” (this is for the Kherson people) or the “Kherson ring” (this is for the people of Kakhov). The idea was just crazy for me and I still had no idea how I would drive another 70 km.

Way Back

The way back was no longer morally for me, and I started on my way. Bike trip up from Antonovka, I remembered my Velo-50 in Kherson, because the route went along this road. And at that moment I recalled how I passed this section then; how I cursed myself then, how I wanted to stop and fall somewhere on the side of the road. But this time I rode this ascent with a grin and remembered myself then; and that was only in the spring. Considering that this time about 70 km were covered behind the back, and then it was only 35-40, the ascent was passed in the heat, not at all critical and mentally calm.

The water was running out, and on the horizon there was not a single store for you; even at the miserable gas station before the junction there was nothing for sale. I had to drive a little along the highway towards Nikolaev; where I stopped at a more normal gas station, where there was a store. There I bought 2 bottles of 0.5 liters each with plain non-carbonated water (for refueling the hydrator) because there were no large bottles, as well as a bottle of Pepsi and Snickers. It was divine – the body demanded carbohydrates and received them. The tanker started asking where and where, he joked; but then we said goodbye and he wished us a good journey. At the gas station, I noticed that clouds were approaching from the south.

Biking Experience in the Village

Biking Experience in the Village

Biking Experience in the Village – Somewhere in the center of the village, I stopped near the first store I came across and bought a jar of sprite there (I wanted something sweet). And then came the turning point when I began to think: “Shouldn’t I go further? Will I be able to get to Kherson? Or maybe make a hundred? “. Apparently the refreshing Sprite successfully hit me in the head and I nevertheless decided to go to Kherson. The first goal was to get to the Antonovsky bridge and then come back, if anything.

After the Cossacks there was the first stop due to need and then a very long road began to the Tsuryupa highway. I did not expect, to be honest, that this section of the road would be so long and boring.

There are practically no cars and people, the road as a whole is not bad, but in places with holes that can be easily bypassed on a bike ride, but the cars had to stop. On this section of the path, I also made a couple of small stops in those places where there were trees near the road, because this section was practically passed under the very sun, when the sun was at its zenith.

The Highway

Well, finally I got to the highway and turned right towards Kherson. He joined the frantic traffic flow. The road to the bridge also seemed to me very long, although there is only about 6 km from the turn to the bridge. And then the first thoughts began to visit me, and not whether they will come back. But the goal was set and it was necessary to move on. In Oleshki (Tsuryupisk) I met the first and only uniformed cyclist on my way. I waved to him, and he froze something bastard. Well, okay, I moved on.

Hooray! This is the cherished bridge that I so wanted to see. He stood on it for a while, enjoyed the landscape, watched the man go fishing and drove on. The next stop was near the “Kherson” stele, which was very symbolic for me and raised morale at the thought of the achieved goal. In the shade near a private house, I took a break for 20 minutes.

How I Rode a Bike to Kherson

How I Rode a Bike to Kherson

How I rode a bike to Kherson – Sometimes extraordinary ideas come quite spontaneously, which happened to me on August 10, 2016. Not quite early in the morning, at 9:45 am, I decided to take a ride in the direction of the Cossack Camps, because I have never been there. Yes, and I think, I’ll get some air, I’ll be back by dinner.

The trip was planned the night before, so the chain was first lubricated and nothing more. In the morning, after breakfast, I packed my backpack, took everything I needed (spare camera, repair kit, multitool and pump). I refused a bottle of water and took a 2-liter drinking system, which later helped me a lot. I put a camera and a power bank in the load (just in case).

The Morning

As I mentioned above, I left the house at 9:45. There was no intense heat yet, but there was a breeze that blew throughout the entire journey. Taking an average pace of 25 km / h, I flew through Osnova, Dnepryany, Korsunka and only in Krynki did I make the first stop at a bus stop (lol).

Here, the first of two horseshoes I bought from a bakery near the house was eaten. Just at the first pit stop, I felt the growing heat; when at one moment you expire in a stream of sweat. But when you ride a bike and the headwind is blowing, then everything is fine and the heat is not so felt.

So I went on. Behind Krynki, in some places there was a very “fun” road, like Dutch cheese; but I had already been notified of this in advance; although I expected a worse road. On the advice of one friend of a cyclist, I drove into the Cossack Lageri down the bottom; did not turn to the top to the left, because there is only one name for the road.

Should You Start a Relationship With Cyclists?

Should you start a relationship with cyclists? – If you are lucky enough to meet such a girl, then do not write off rejoicing ahead of time. At first, most likely everything will be great for you and you will be glad that you found each other, and that you have a common hobby.

After the candy-bouquet period has passed, and the level of endorphins in your body returns to its normal state, then with a high degree of probability it will strain you and you will want to ride alone or start looking towards other girls. Or vice versa, your girlfriend will start to glance at other guys in a tight bike.

Success

It’s good if your relationship is successful and grows into something more. Personally, I know several examples of strong cycling families in my city. I have very good friends Julia and Anton, sometimes we ride together. Very positive and kind guys. So, a couple of years ago, they met at one of our pokatushki and somehow everything started spinning very quickly. We constantly skated together, and then got married after a while. Julia has an adult daughter who also rides a bike. In general, an ideal family. Nowadays, this is a rare case when everything is so successful, but according to statistics, more often than not even couples with a common hobby do not always get along for a long time due to various reasons and life circumstances.

So guys, here I will not specifically advise you on anything. And as for whether it is worth starting a relationship with a girl cyclist, I will tell you this – it is definitely worth a try, and then the map will lie down and time will tell. If you want to know my opinion, then I would like to have such a girl, but only if she does not limit my freedom and constantly impose with pokatushki.

As I said above, I prefer to ride alone. And no girl can give those emotions and sensations when you are alone with nature and taste every second of its harmony and bliss. This is a special feeling and the bike is exactly the tool that allows you to catch these moments and enjoy them in private.

Where to Look for Cyclists

Where to Look for Cyclists

Where to look for cyclists – Now let’s consider the next question: where to look for girls cyclists for guys who would like to ride in pairs? The answer to this question lies on the surface and everything is much simpler than you think.

Well, first of all, you can find a cyclist on the social network, in the cycling public of your city. This is the easiest way, but not the most efficient one. Although you can try to write to the girl and offer her a bike ride together.

Secondly, the best way to meet a girl cyclist is to come to various events like a bike day, to some competitions or quests, as well as to take part in weekend rides with cycling in your city. At such gatherings, you will definitely meet someone.

Well, the third way, for those who do not like motive power and noisy companies. The strategy is very simple and uncomplicated and consists in the fact that you will be in the role of a hunter to look for your prey. In simple terms, you are just driving around the city alone, preferably somewhere in the park and looking out for lonely girls on a bike. And thus, get to know the one that you like the most.

The Reason

And a reason for dating is the easiest to come up with. For example, drive up and say: “Hi, I noticed your bike chain is poorly lubricated, I just have a tube of lubricant. Let’s make your trip more enjoyable? ”Or something like that. I think you will understand.

In the early stages of a relationship, when you’ve just met and started dating but aren’t living together yet; riding a bike together can even be an adventure and may well add romance to your nascent relationship. But here you also need to be able not to overdo it, so that it does not become boring and your girlfriend or you do not lose interest in this. I mean joint rides. Well, I think we figured it out with that. Let’s go further.

Well, we sorted it out. Now let’s talk about whether it is worth starting a relationship with a girl cyclist?

Convincing Girlfriend to Ride Bike With Jealousy

Convincing Girlfriend to Ride Bike With Jealousy

Convincing Girlfriend to Ride Bike With Jealousy – Just try this trick: on the bike ride of your city, take more general photos, in which the girls-cyclists must be present. When your girlfriend sees them, jealousy may appear in her and this will be her motivation to ride with you in order to keep rivals away from you. If you don’t see any reaction to these photos, then most likely you should start looking specifically at the cyclists in your movement.

Now let’s look at the second case, when your girlfriend likes your hobby, but she says that she does not know how to ride a bike, but would love to ride with you.

In this situation, everything already looks much simpler. You just need to buy a new one or assemble some unpretentious bike from old parts and take up the responsibility for training your girlfriend. When she has completely mastered the bike and is confidently sitting in the saddle, you can safely take her with you on the rides and have a wonderful time together.

Opinion

And now I will express my opinion. Of course, everyone has different attitudes and, accordingly, situations may differ. But as for me, I prefer to ride more alone and sometimes with friends. For me, this is a rest, both from work and from personal life. When you live with a girl, then you are constantly together: doing household chores, walking, sleeping, etc. And if you also skate together, then it’s already strained, as for me.

And here it’s not that the girl is bad or good, but it’s about personal space and emotional release. You need to be able to rest for yourself from everything and everyone. I really like to be alone sometimes, and if it is also on a bicycle; then this is generally a complete brain relaxation. And I would not want to be bothered by my girlfriend at such moments.

We will talk about the beautiful half of humanity, namely about girls-cyclists, which many of us are madly in love with.

How to convince your girlfriend to ride a bike together?

Surely many of you, being in a relationship with a girl, thought about how wonderful it would be to ride a bike together and enjoy the ride even more. Unfortunately, not all girls share this hobby to the full, or they don’t take it seriously at all. It’s good when she likes it as much as you do, and you have complete harmony and a common hobby or even sports interest.

For example, you want your girlfriend to skate with you and your friends. How to instill this hobby in her and is it worth bothering with it at all?

Let’s look at the first case. You are madly in love with the bike, this is your hobby or just regular riding with friends. Your girlfriend is indifferent to this, for her it is something like gatherings in the garage or fishing, where only men gather and nothing more. Your pokatushki for her to one place most likely, as well as for you her get-togethers with friends, where they discuss the heroes of the soap series or new lipstick colors from the avon catalog.

Of course, you can buy her a bike in the hope that your passion will share your hobby with you, you can also tell her for a long time about the benefits of cycling for the health of the body, etc. etc. But, most likely, nothing good will come of it with a high degree of probability. She, of course, so as not to offend you, can ride a couple of times and this is likely to be the end. Her bike will be in the corner, and you will still ride alone or with friends. In this situation, you can no longer do anything, because the girl has no motivation, no interest in your hobby and is unlikely to ever sit behind the wheel of a bicycle.
