Good Cycling Tips and Tricks

For partners who have tips & tricks related to bicycles, please write the tips & trix on this page. Hopefully his knowledge can be useful for other friends of lovers.


Cycling is a very enjoyable activity, for those of you who are unemployed and just stay silent, it is not wrong to try this challenging and relaxing activity that is a concept.

This time we will discuss tips on assembling a mountain bike:

for those of you who like mountain biking there are beautiful tips, we think tips on assembling mountain bikes.

Before getting to know the bicycle frame, it's a good idea to present first the anatomy of the mtb bike, or known as bike anatomy.

Mtb bikes are classified into two types, namely hard tail (ht) & full suspension (fs).called hard tail because it is a hard "tail" without shock.

In general, hard tails are used for xc tracks, dirtjump, and free rides. while fulsus is used on all mountain anddownhill tracks. however, the use of hard tails for downhillmeski tracks is not commonly found in some mtb championships. This can be intended to increase the level of difficulty because the use of hardtails on downhill tracks requires high skills from the rider. Exceptions in some manufacturers of fulsus bikes that have successfully built fulsus bikes as light and comfortable as possible, so that the impact of bobbing commonly found in fulsus bikes can be minimized. call it one giant anthem, my another dream bike

each frame both ht and fs has a certain size with a single inch. generally as a benchmark size is the length of the video and / or toptube. but there are also bike makers who have classified their frames to sizes s, m, and l. each size has an exclusive geometry table & generally can be seen on their website.

The guide determines the frame size easily is that people with a maximum height of 165cm must use frame s, 165 - 175cm frame m, and>175cm frame l. although there are some exceptions because everyone has a hand length, leg length, and body length that is not the same even though the total height is the same. thus even though we have selected frames using benchmarks as above, generally we must still perform corrections using determining the size of other components, such ashandlebars, seatposts, stems, and cranks.

To find out if your mtb has a perfect size, try to straddle the frame that has been in assembled condition, hand holding handlebars. If you can stand freely using still cycling tips leave a distance of at least 5cm between the tob tube using your vitals area, that's a pretty sign. but if it pegs or even pauses too wide, it is the size of your bike is not perfect. For fork users with travel adjustments, the shortcomings or advantages of this pause are still possible to be corrected using increasing or reducing the length of travel.

For fs frame enthusiasts, in addition to frame size, there are still other variables, namely the type of rear shock, travel length, & link technology. These three variations should be considered, especially for those who can already feel good riding a fulsus bike. However, for beginners, it seems that it will not be able to distinguish the three factors earlier.

Well so tips on Assembling Mountain Bikes in our opinion hopefully useful sip deh...


To cycle safely and comfortably on the road it is also necessary to pay attention to the rules or budget using sahih. Although cycling on the road is considered easy but the safety factor of the rider must be determined to take precedence. The goal is to prevent accidents that can claim lives, because 96% of accidents are caused due to non-conducive behavior.

In developed countries such as in America and Europe whose citizens have great respect for safety (a person before riding a bike on the road needs to know first the techniques or rules available. Various ways are taken such as following coaching / coaching courses, reading literature, discussing discussions in bicycle fan clubs, etc.

Before starting cycling on the highway should need to be prepared first for the bike and the rider. Check the condition of the bike starting according to the suitability of tire pressure, brakes in good condition, chains, pedals, saddles, reflectors are attached, check whether there are components that are saggy, basically our bicycles are in good condition and safe. For the rider needs to prepare mentally, do not ride in the condition of the mind kalut, body sick, drunk, drowsy, affected by drugs. Especially if you will travel in a long time and a long distance such as participating intouring, physical requirements must be completely fit. Completeness of attributes is also needed such as wearing a head helmet, glasses, shoes, t-shirts or pants that are comfortable to use, if necessary bring water & snacks such as sweets / chocolates. If everything is complete get ready to launch on the road.

Start and Stop a Bike

We must climb on the bike using the right, the finish we sit down the position of the left foot is still below to support the bike & body, ad interim right foot above the pedal, hands holding the brake lever. After that, the bike starts with the right foot using slowly and followed by the left leg, adjusting the balance. For bicycles that have gear shifting arrangements, adjust the position of the teeth either front or back as needed. If we're going to stop, pull the front and rear brake levers slowly until the bike has completely stopped. If you use the front brake too hard, the bike will topple over the front. And when using the rear brake only, the rear wheels can slip and the stopping distance will be long. Do not try to sit on the saddle with 2 feet above the ground before starting, if indeed the saddle is validly lower position according to the hips. Make sure the height is set using sahih, because if it is too low or high it can cause knee injuries and make it more difficult to give money.

Riding a Bicycle on the Road

In our country we generally drive a mount both motorized and walking on the left. For cycling if on the road there is a specific for slow lanes or bike lanes, we can take the path. When we blend in the generic cross-flow, we must always be vigilant. We must always know where they are going and what to do with them more or less, beware of motorcycles, four-wheeled vehicles or pedestrians. Beware also of road crossings, whether fork, intersection, railway, do not violate red lights, dangerous. To cycle take the left lane about 1 meter from the shoulder of the road, keep a distance with the driver behind us and the front, beware of blindspots. The look in our eyes looks towards the traffic, the derivative of the potholed roof road. When crossing a car that is parked on the side of the road, keep the range of the door of the four-wheeled vehicle when the car door is opened. Be aware of four-wheeled vehicles, make sure the driver of the car is either in front or behind to see our position if we want to maneuver or turn. If you want to get ahead of make sure our position is conducive, a bicycle that is equipped with a bell will be very helpful to make a signal. Do not cross too close between two cars that are driving forward together. At the intersection, move to the right path depending on the direction we are going to. If you want to turn left, keep going. But if you want to turn the corner, move to the middle of the road continue to turn right, make sure before turning back first. Because the concept does not have a sign light, pointing using our hands can be a frequency if you want to turn. If you continue to be straight make sure the position of the left right and front of us. If there is traffic light, just follow the signal. The key to driving at an intersection is to put a position in a valid lane.

Well, the above writing is partly about the rules of the general budget roof to ride a bicycle on the road. Good luck.
