Understanding the Various Types of Bikes
When you are shopping for a bike you will ask yourself a couple of questions. Who you ride with, the bike you rode in the past that you either liked or disliked and what you would like to do with your new bike is what the questions will be. Riding with friends will require you to acquire a similar bike with theirs as the terrains you will ride on will be similar and bikes have different capabilities. To start with, road bikes are used on very smooth roads so that they can be driven quickly. The distinct characteristics are the delicate and thin tires while the handlebars are ‘drop’. People find it unstable and uncomfortable when these light bikes are used not used on pavements as they are only great on pavements. Heavy loads cannot be carried on this bikes.
The next type of bike is the Cylocross bicycles. These bikes are special because they can be ridden on different kinds of roads. It can be ridden on paved, unpaved, grass or glass roads. The same drop’ handlebars found on road bikes are a feature of these bikes. The tires are wider for a better off road traction. This bike has a special kind of brake system to prevent mud build up in the frame. Due to their versatility, durability, and ability to carry light loads they are a favorite of many. Touring bikes are the other kind of road bike. They are designed for use on pavements but can be used for long distance riding. Drop handlebars are designed to increase comfort ability. They have mounting bolts for cargo racks and fenders.
The next bike for review is the Triathlon trial bicycles. To maximize aerodynamic properties they are designed that way. The handlebars have a design that requires one to crouch thus overcoming wind resistance and this is a major aerodynamic property. Mass races cannot use such bikes as they have a staggered start and it can delay people. The major advantages of road bikes which are lightweight, flat or upright handlebars and relatively narrow tires for efficiency when riding on pavements are the same for Flat-Bar Road Bicycles. High performance without drop handlebars are the features of this bike and it is a good choice for people looking for such features. Aside from being able to be mounted with cargo racks and fenders making them great for commuting they can be used on unpaved roads as they have wider tires.
