If you’ve spent your hard earned money on a bike you naturally want it not only to operate good but also to look good. A bike will look good if it is clean and well lubricated, has the perfect frame style for the type of riding you plan to do, and has clever decals and components. But another factor for adults is the color of the bike frame. Does the color of a bike matter and what is the best color for a bike?
Wearing a bike helmet on every bike ride saves lives and prevents injuries. Experts say that using this readily available and affordable piece of safety equipment on all your rides is the single most effective way to prevent head and brain injuries in the event you should fall off your bike. Even if you ride at a slow speed, there is a risk of injury from a fall. Having a helmet is one thing, but taking steps to make sure it fits properly is also essential for your safety and for maximum protection.
If you're still riding around with the basic pedals that came with your bike it is time to make an upgrade. Pedals that come on new bikes are generally designed to meet a low price point and do not take into consideration your unique riding style and requirements. Due to their constant movement and force placed on them pedals wear out quickly. Bike pedals come in a variety of shapes, styles, and sizes and are easy to upgrade so knowing why and when to do this is worth investigating.
