If you are deciding to purchase a bike, or you’ve just bought one, it’s important to know to take care of it and keep it in the best condition possible if you want to make the most out of it. There are a few simple things you can do at home, without having to visit a bike specialist. It is always a good idea to purchase a bike tool kit, to have to hand. These are available from most bike stores and places such as Halfords.
Lastly, before I get started, if you are on a budget then do not get a four-stroke motocross www.little-dragon-bikes.eu/fr/……. I repeat, DO NOT buy a four-stroke. Although they are easier to ride faster and have many advantages over two-strokes, you don’t want to get one and have to put 2k into it because it ran out of oil or dropped a valve. You’ll be right back where you started. If you really want to stay on a budget then start out with a two-stroke, trust me.
You’ll need some way to carry your briefcase, laptop, lunch and maybe a change of clothes. You may try a back pack or bike bag but the very best way is to install a rack on your bike and use panniers, or ‘saddlebags’ for your gear. Using panniers is more comfortable than a back pack and make the bike easier and safer to ride by keeping the weight low.
OKits that advertise installation in “an hour or less” are something to be wary of. Sure, it can be done, but as with e bike there are always two ways to accomplish something. The quick way and the right way. Proper installation of a kit requires making sure that all the components fit snugly and correctly. Remember, you are going to trust your one and only body to this thing as you move along at 20 miles an hour. Having the front wheel fall out, the throttle slip, the battery container break loose or having no motor interrupts on the brakes can make for a very unpleasant experience not to mention destroying your bike or kit.
And then on Saturday I went to pick up my bike. I think they showed me something about the shocks and how to adjust the rebound speed and something else.. which I don’t remember because my head was filled with cherubs and harps and hearts and the most beautiful bike you’ve ever seen. Well except perhaps for that Madone, but next year’s model will be even more beautiful.
A cycle shelter or compound allows you to store bikes and offers protection from the weather. This can be a single bay shelter consisting of five or six toast racks or a cycle compound which has space for a hundred bikes.
Last but not least you have the electric bicycle or e-bike. The e-bike looks like any other bicycle, you probable wouldn’t notice that the e-bike has a small motor on it. Most if not all electric bikes these days have an electric motor on them. Back in the day you could get one with a small gas motor. In most cities e-bikes follow the same traffic laws as a standard bike. A license and registration are not needed to legally ride an electric bike in most places.
