Bikes have gears for the same reason cars do; to let the engine work at a comfortable and efficient speed. A car’s engine works well at a wide range of speeds, while your bike’s human engine is best in a fairly narrow band of pedalling rates. Bikes therefore need a wide range of gears to cope with hills, and they need to be fairly close to each other.
Most bikes use external gear mechanisms, known as derailleurs, to move the chain around different sized toothed wheels called the 'cassette’, on the wheel and ‘chainrings’ at the pedal end. The smaller the chainring, or the larger the rear sprocket on the cassette, the lower and easier the gear.
Another common type of gear system hides the mechanism inside the rear hub. Called ‘hub gears’, these are eminently practical and tidy but don’t have quite the wide range of ratios provided by derailleurs and carry a weight penalty.
Many beginner riders ﬁnd the gears the most daunting feature of their bikes. Get yourself to a ﬂat, quiet place like a car park or bike path and shift up and down through the gears until you're completely conﬁdent with how they work and what they do.
You’ve got to be able to stop quickly and in control.
Quickly is no problem; the brakes on modern bikes are powerful enough that your ability to brake is limited by the laws of physics. Brake too hard and you’ll go over the bars. What you want is ﬁne control over how hard you brake, and consistency in wet and dry conditions.
Brakes either act on the rim of the wheel or a braking disc which is attached to the hub.
Rim brakes are simple, but braking is affected by water on the rim, while disc brakes are more complex but provide more consistent and powerful braking.
Drop handlebars were developed for road racing, and work brilliantly if you want to get into a position on the bike that lets you cover a lot of ground quickly. In fact, they offer at least three hand positions, so you can move around if you get tired of one stance.
But many riders like the more upright position of a ﬂat handlebar, especially for more leisurely riding, where you can sit up and admire the view — or in trafﬁc.
Wider ﬂat bars give better control on rough surfaces, which is why they're the universal choice of mountain bikers, but for riding on the road it’s worth trying both.
Drop bars may look less comfortable, but for sportier riding the position can be more comfortable.
In short, yes. Experts recommend at least 20 minutes of aerobic exercise (such as riding a bike hard enough that you get a little out of breath) at least three times per week to maintain basic ﬁtness and health.
How much ﬁtter you get than that will depend on how much cycling you do. It’s surprisingly easy to build your ﬁtness up gradually and realise that you’re suddenly capable of riding for miles and miles.
One of the details that affects the price of a bike is its groupset, which refers to mechanical components like the shifters, chain, and cassette. Some of the pricier ones might weigh less and shift a bit more smoothly, but it’s not necessarily worth your extra dollars if you’re a cycling novice—so inquiring might help you choose a less expensive (but still fantastic for you) option.
Children should be able to sit on the bicycle seat, hands on the handlebars, and have the balls of their feet touch the ground. Don’t select a bike for your child to 'grow into.' Foot-operated brakes, rather than hand brakes, are safest for younger children.
The helmet should sit on top of the head in a level position and not rock forward, backward, or side to side. The helmet straps should form a V under the ears, and should be snug but comfortable.
Are the brakes working properly, the gears shifting smoothly, and the tires tightly secured and properly inflated?
It’s important to wear a bright shirt, jacket, or vest, even during daylight hours. Front white lights, rear red lights, and other light reflectors should be placed on the bicycle and worn by the cyclist.
Night riding requires skills that most children haven’t acquired.
Cyclists need to be able to hear oncoming traffic and be fully focused on hazards.
Ride on the right side of roads, in the same direction as other vehicles. (Almost one fourth of bicycle-car collisions result from bicyclists riding against traffic.) Obey all traffic signs, signals, and lane markings. Use hand signals when turning.
They may open their doors or pull out unexpectedly.
It can get caught in bike chains or wheel spokes.
Be sure that they’re paying attention before crossing in front of them or pulling into their lane. Just because you can see a driver doesn’t mean they can see you.
Many beginners want to be able to put a foot ﬂat on the ground while sitting in the saddle. The problem is that puts your saddle too low for comfortable, efficient pedalling.
With your saddle too low, you’ll get tired quicker. For an enjoyable ride, you should have your saddle high enough that your knee is at a 25- to 35-degree angle when your foot is at the bottom of the pedal’s rotation.
It will look like the knee is not quite fully straight. On most bikes you’ll still be able to reach the ground from the saddle in this position; you may have to shufﬂe sideways a little.
Equipment: Spirit level, ruler and a helper.
Important: Take this measurement without shoes
1. Stand up straight against a wall.
2. Place the spirit level on your head, ensuring that you keep it horizontal.
3. Measure and record the distance from the lower edge of the spirit level to the floor.
The inseam is the distance from ground up into the crotch.
Equipment: Spirit level, tape measure and a helper.
1. Stand straight against a wall with your legs shoulder width apart. If you have a spirit level, you don't have to be against a wall.
2. Tuck the spirit level between your legs.
3. Using both hands, pull the spirit level up, firmly into your croth. Try to reproduce the pressure of sitting on a saddle while holding the spirit level horizontally.
4. Measure and record the distance from the upper edge of the spirit level to the ground.
Equipment: Tape measure, a dowel and a helper.
1. Let your right arm hang down loosely and reach over with your left hand to grasp your shoulder blade over the shoulder bone.
2. Find this point with your left hand.
3. Grab the dowel with your right hand and make a fist, simulating the grip on the handlebar.
4. Stretch out your right arm horizontally.
5. Rotate your first until the dowel points upwards.
6. Measure and record the distance from a point at the edge of your shoulder bone (already fixed by your left hand) to the middle of the dowel.
Equipment: Ruler and a helper.
1. Feel your way outwards from your shoulder blade until your reach the edge of the shoulder bone. You'll be able to feel this during arm movement.
2. With a straight body and outstretched arms, measure and record the outermost shoulder bone on the left to the outermost shoulder bone on the right.
Equipment: Spirit level, ruler and a helper.
1. Tuck the spirit level between your legs, keeping your torso straight and arms by your side.
2. Measure and record the distance from the upper edge of the spirit level vertically up to the base of the neck, at the breastbone. Keep the spirit level in a horizontal position.
The measurements needed are your height, weight, inseam, arm length, shoulder width and torso length.
