Tips for Buying a Bicycle : Buying Tips for Lightweight Bicycles
Hi I’m Mark, I’m here with Expert Village
at the Competitive Edge Cyclery in Upland, to explain how to buy a quality bike from
the bike shop. Here is perfect example of a light weight bike. This particular bike
is made from carbon fiber. Very, very, very, light. The equipment that is on here also
is high end, and is very light. The whole bike weight wise is about sixteen pounds.
What that’s going to translate into is the ability to climb hills a lot easier, which
in turn is going to make it more enjoyable. Obviously, with a light weight bike you have
to be more careful when riding on the road. If you see pot holes, you do not want to go
in the pot holes. Going over railroad tracks, you have to disperse the weight evenly. Other
than that, just get out there and ride.
