How to select a suitable City Bike? That might be your concern
Wow, City Bicycle, Commuter Bikes or Hybrid Bikes are the type with elegant design that suitable to move around the city in easy way. City Bicycles are rather different with other bikes like racing bikes, mountain bikes. Most the differences are its design. Normally the differences from frame, tyres, brakes…and the design are slim to move easily.
To buy a good bike, you should see these criterias:
1)Frame and material
Currently there are many materials used to produce bicycle frames. Previously mainly steel and aluminum frames, but in recent years super light materials have been studied and applied such as alloys of aluminum, carbon, or titanium …
-Aluminum frame and aluminum alloy are commonly used due to their pretty good weight, cheap and good impact resistance. High quality models also use aluminum alloy frames are the parameter you should consider for your bike.
– Carbon and titanium frames are often used on high-end models because the price of these frames is very high but its shock absorption is very good, super lightweight. But the price is rather high.
It’s very important to select a suitable bike size for you. If The size is too big with your body that will make you always have to cycle with tension. By contrast, if the size is too small with your body that make you hunch your back, legs bent at the knee. And for using in long time, it’s not good for bone and joint .
To have the bets feeling of riding, you should adjust the saddle position to fit the size of your body, the distance between the position from the shoulder to the steering handle so that you can get the most suitable sitting position for the body.
3) Gear System
You do not need to equip your bike with so many levels of speed when biking in the city . Mormally, when cycling a bike in the City, your bike should be equipped with 7-8 sp of gear level.
4) The brakes
V brakes are often fitted on Roadbike and City bike, but their handling ability in wet conditions & weather is less effective than disc brakes.
Moreover, V brakes are often easier to maintain than disc brakes and are cheaper to maintain. Depending on your choice, it is possible to choose a vehicle with suitable brakes.
5)Wheels and tires
A spiny tire can give you better friction, avoiding slippery when traveling on slippery roads due to moisture. But this means that your speed will be more limited.
For the best speed is still a Roadbike, then a City bike model, finally is other types of bike like Fat types bikes
But there is a weakness of Roadbike and city bike is that the tire is quite thin, easy to tear and puncture when the road surface is full of crushed stone and glass fragments, or passing through the edge of the pavement.
Depending on the distance you move, you can choose the appropriate saddle. But don’t choose to be too small because it can easily cause genital compression. In addition, women should choose a larger saddle because the female’s pelvis is often bigger than the male, which is more prone to buttocks if sitting still small when experiencing shock from terrain.
