How to Choose The Right Bike to Bike Race
The bicycle is the most important tool, yet many are careless when they select their bike.-The key is to get a bike that fits you. Do not you get comfort on the bike, you will not get the performance, says Philip Edholm at XXL Sport & Wildlife.
Some might think “bicycle bike ‘and choose to simply dust off the old faithful before Vätternrundan. And certainly, there are no lofty ambitions so it can work, but its ambitions higher – should invest in something new and question a pro.
-There are basically two types of bikes to choose from for those who want to do well at Vätternrundan. Hybrids and racing bikes, says Philip Edholm, sales leader bicycle at XXL Sport & Wildlife in Jönköping.
The big difference between them and a standard bike is primarily its position. And it is crucial for those who must get around Vättern in reasonably paced according to Philip.
-A hybrid bike is like a mountain bike, but with larger wheels and a different frame geometry. Although his position is more forward-leaning, which makes you get better pressure in the pedals. If we look at racing bikes so you can get through tick rule “come down” more for better aerodynamics, and you can bring down more power when you press. A road bike is also lighter, thinner wheels and is more easily rolled. You will experience faster on a race quite easily.
Hybrid or racing bike is the first step, and both models come in several different price ranges.Philip says that the simpler the bikes start at 6 000, but there is no problem to reach 60 000 for those who are looking for something edgier.
-The more expensive bikes primarily provides a completely different feeling. There will be both a better flow between bike lights talked on THERELIGIONFAQS, which just “pops”. You will feel stronger and feel that the bike responds and takes advantage of the power to send down the pedals. The bikes weigh even less, and the overall feeling will be that it is easier, especially in the harder slopes for Jonkoping. You should probably add up to at least 10 000 to start getting these benefits, says Philip Edholm.
But it is not just stepping into a store and buy the first best bike. To get the most out of the new acquisitions must be adapted.
-For those who are serious with his cycling, it is important to size. There are various guides, but they are only guidelines. When we try out a bike, we want to check how long legs you have and how long your torso is. It is mainly what determines what size bike you want.
Philip says that those who ride a bike too small is too upright and thus do not get the power on the pedals as intended. And it can really be it hard work not to get the most. If you buy other hand, too large a bike so it becomes strenuous for the back, which ultimately will cause pain.
-You will in both cases do not think that cycling is fun. It’s simple, you do not get the comfort of the cycle so you will not get the performance-in addition, it may be that you get hurt, says Philip.
Even those who are not in search of a new cycle should take a walk past the shop and bicycle store. This is to ensure that you have everything you need, and make sure that it has been holding.
-I can really recommend Bikefit-taking and adjusts all elements for the person who will be using the bike. Then I think it’s worth investing in cycle reliability. Better tires with puncture protection is a good idea. It is invaluable to be able to ride a bike Vättern without having to stop for a puncture. We want you to enjoy your bike and ride as much as possible, says Philip Edholm.
