Maintaining Your Bike With Confidence

Last summer, I decided to purchase an E-bike. I have been employed by the same place for a few years now, and the drive in each day is normally about fifteen minutes by car. The cost of driving in to work each day, and then back home seems so costly that I began looking for more options.

Lastly, before I get started, if you are on a budget then do not get a four-stroke motocross……. 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.

Yep, JUNK. If you are a pretty shrewd person and know your stuff I might suggest getting one but if you are that level you are better off building your own or getting a hub-mount. The truth is that bikes on the market have terrible range, pathetic speed, funny to weird designs, and in general just don’t pack the punch that you should have. Take my word and just get a hub mount with some power.

Swimming, dancing, walking, and bicycling are all excellent aerobic activities.Everyone of them uses your leg muscles and causes your heart and lungs to circulate blood and oxygen and gives you a great cardio workout. e bike activity mentioned above allows you to go at your own pace and stop when you are overly tired. Of course, a little tiredness is a good thing. It means you are working your body a little more than usual and that is very beneficial to your health.

Know what you need. Figuring out what you want and need shouldn’t take too long. What kind of cyclist are you? Casual? Fitness? Commuter? Distance? All of these factors should be taken into consideration before purchasing. The differences between bicycles are endless, so spend your time designing your specific bike needs. After you have your bike in mind, start the hunt.

Mental training is different for everyone. Some people are driven by the desire to see how far they can go while others just tag along with the group for the camaraderie. Find what drives you and stick to a group of training buddies who share similar interests.

Generally speaking it’s a trade off – size and level off security against additional weight. So the decision as to which lock is best for you depends a lot on how much security you need – i.e how much bike crime there is in the place you are going to leave your bike and how desirable or expensive your bike is, against how much extra weight you are willing to carry.
