If you are in the market for a road cycle check out this site from Freeflite (they also sell bikes and bike equipment).
- Selecting a frame material – how the materials differ and why you should ride a bike before buying it.
- Choosing gearing – how many gears and understanding the numbers. For example, if you have a “triple crankset and a 10-cog cassette, you have 30 gears.” Ah, it’s explained!
- Understanding wheels and tires – understanding all the measurements and why dropping a few grames in wheel weight can feel like dropping 10 pounds of body weight.
