Executive Summary about bike tires by Laurence Vinn Jacobsenn
Chosing The right Bike tire. One of the most essential parts of the bike is of course its bike tire. A bike tire has different classifications created to suit a biker's need. The most common is the clincher tire. This type of tire is usually used in road bikes.
Bike Tires
This type of bike tire is quick and aggressive hence, it is thin and light. Then there is the mountain bike. It is built to handle challenges that are on the mountain trails or off-roads. It is built with sturdy rubber and a knobby thread. This type of bike tire is therefore not recommended for road or racing bikes because it will hold on to the pavement making your travel slow and hard.
Interestingly, this type is built for making tricks with your bike.
How to Put New Bike Tires on Rims
Executive Summary about bike tires by Allan Cassidy
What if you are riding your bicycle and your tire suddenly went kaput? You should know how to put those new bike tires on the rims of the wheel. Rim is what they call the circular metal where the tire is mounted on. Step 1: You will need the right size of bike tires, of course. Step 4: Once the tire has significantly deflated, it will be easier to detach it from the rim. Just push the screwdriver between the tire and the rim. Slowly pry the tire including the inner tub away from the rims. Just insert it in the new tire you have bought. Locate the bike rim hole and insert the tire stem in there. Proceed by inserting the rest of the tire in a circular motion. Step 7: Place the wheel back in the bicycle again and reattach the bolts. Now you can inflate the tire.

Choosing a Bicycle
Executive Summary about bike online by Jerry Goodwin

Bike Store
Wal-Mart is the largest bicycle retailer in the US. Target and other discount stores also sell many bicycles. While most of these bikes are bought by adults as gifts for children, many are indeed purchased for adults,
In 1998 I took that bike a 26' Roadmaster on a ride around South Georgia to help raise money for the Bikes or Bust which is operated through the Toy's for Tots Organization of the Marine Corps Reserves. I personally rode that bike 50 miles a day for 3 days. That was when full suspension bikes were just really hitting the market. The Roadmaster was not a full suspension bike and was purchased for 49.00 plus tax. There are many types of bicycles, such as BMX bike, Road Bikes, or Mountain Bikes. In the BMX line you will also hear the term Cruiser used to describe a bike that looks like a solid framed mountain bike, but has only one gear. There are also variations in the Mountain Bikes there is what is known as a hard tail as well as a full-suspension bike. If you are planning on getting the bicycle as a way of getting some exercise, then you can probably pick up a nice bike at any department store 70 to 80% of bikes bought for that reason usually end up in the garage until they get sold at a yard sale anyway.
A good shop will help you pick out a bike that fits your needs or the needs of the person you are getting the bike for. Often a shop can get you a good deal on a used bike, saving hundreds of dollars.
Jim Lau owns Cycle World in Albany Georgia. When we were looking to get our grandson a new bike we went to a shop that specializes in BMX Bikes. The closest shop that had the SE bikes was in Columbus Georgia, so we met Aaron Oney there and found not only a good bike shop and a great deal on a bike but also a new friend. I now have friends all over Georgia and even other states like Alabama, Ohio, and Texas that own Bike shops. If you want to get the best deal on a high quality bicycle then a bike shop is your only answer.

How to Choose the Right Size Road Bike

Executive summary abaut bike sizing by Winston Endall
how to choose the right size road bike. Choosing the right size road bike can be tricky as they don't all fit the same. Two companies models listed as the same size can have vastly different measurements. When a company lists the size of a road bike frame it is some variation of the length of the seat tube. That point can be the center of the top tube, top of the top tube, top of the seat tube or some virtual point that isn't even on the frame. Add in sloping top tubes and this can get really complicated.
To compare the size of frames you should look at the effective top tube length and headtube length. If choosing between two models that have a slight variation in top tube length you can compensate with a longer or shorter stem. When figuring out a frame size for a client I will take measurements of inseam length, torso length, arm length and shoulder width. You can also search for online size calculators that instruct you on how to take your measurements and calculate the correct size.
Get the Right Bike Size and Frame

Executive summary abaut bike sizing by Phill Charter

The Grand Bicycle Ride
The heavy frames came with laid back angles, and with long wheel bases. Even steel bicycle frames progressively got lighter by making the tubes thinner, and joining them without using lugs.
Bicycle frames revolutionized when alloy tubes came into the picture. Most people now go for alloy bicycle frames, often combining with carbon forks, carbon chain and seat stays in some cases.
Mix and Match - Bicycle Parts
We would basically buy the best bicycle frame that we can afford, add the right bicycle parts, and see that they fit well.
Getting the Right Bike Size
The most basic element of sizing a bike frame is commonly referred to as its height. A road bike frame's height is normally thought to be ideal if it is 67% of our inseam length. A mountain bike is however ridden on a much smaller frame.
Frame sizes are affected by the unique configurations of our body, and which can be accommodated by differences in frame geometry, top tube length, seat post height, and/or saddle angles, handlebar width, and slant, or even crank length.

Cycling Shorts

Executive Summary abaut Bike Short by Cem Sinan

Cycling shorts, also referred as cycle, or bike shorts, are legwear that cyclists wear while cycling. They have a tight-fit design just like cycling shirts and aim to decrease the air resistance, protect the skin of the cyclist, wick the moisture away from the skin and cool down the cyclist and tighten the legs to keep the cyclist energetic. The seat and crotch areas contain synthetic chamois. Men's and women's biking shorts also differ. There are different kinds of cycling shorts. Elastic waistband may cause discomfort to the cyclist. There are also baggy shorts for cycling. As mentioned before, biking shorts keep the upper leg muscles (quadriceps) tight by wrapping around them
How to choose best cycle shorts?
The padding must be stitched well. The gel cycling shorts are considered good, too. Some of the most popular brands are: Cannondale, Pearl Izumi, Sugoi, Canari, Assos, Castelli, Descente, Endura, Giordana Nalini, Pro cycling, Santini, Shebeest , Falconi, Voler, Verge, Discovery Channel, Veloce, Hoss, Race Tech and Zoic.
Good Reasons To Wear Bike Shorts
Executive Summary abaut Bike Short by Fabian toulouse
Bike shorts
Cycling is a wonderful pastime. Flappy jackets create wind resistance. Bad clothing choices have an impact. One of the most painful choices, however, is opting not to wear proper shorts.
The first advantage of cyclingshorts is the fabric from which they are made. Between the close fit and the synthetic material, cycling shorts provide comfort while you ride and help prevent chafing and rashes. Finally, as these shorts fit so tightly, they effectively hug or compress the thigh muscles, cutting down on muscle fatigue.
When looking for shorts to wear cycling, the best material is lycra. You would not ride horseback or play football without protection, right?

Get a Hitch Bike Rack and Keep Your Bike Safe

Executive summary abaut bike rack by Andrew Caxtown
Get a hitch bike rack and keep your bike safe. If you've got a pickup truck or an SUV, you may think that you don't need to make an investment in a bike rack of any kind, because there's plenty of room in the back of the truck or your sports utility vehicle for a bike or two. You can't get a roof rack for your truck, obviously, and the roof of your SUV will be too high to comfortably lift a bike up to the roof.
No problem - if you've got a trailer hitch on the back of your truck or SUV, then all you need to do is get a receiver bike rack, more commonly known as a hitch bike rack. Everybody Wins with a Receiver Hitch Bike Rack
You can buy a hitch rack that will carry up to five bikes at a time.
If you've got a pickup or an SUV, then you've invested a lot in your vehicle. You've probably also invested a lot in your bike as well.
Bike Racks - How to Choose the Right One

Executive summary abaut bike rack by Mark S mayes

Selecting the right bike rack can be a challenge. There are basically 4 types of bicycle racks available today.
 Roof Mounted Bike Racks
Roof mounted bike racks are a popular choice for bike storage and transportation today. If you have a roof rack already mounted on your vehicle it makes this a much easier choice. However, there are some versions that work without a car roof rack.
Flying rocks and debris can hit the bike and cause damage.
Hitch Bike Rack
There are other versions available that allow the bike to swing away so the rear of the vehicle can be accessed. Many people like this type of a bike rack because the bicycle is protected from flying debris.
Truck Bed Bike Rack
This type of a rack firmly attaches to the bed of the truck and can carry one or more bikes. This works great as compared to just throwing bikes in the back of the truck. Using this type of a rack protects the bikes from getting damaged or bent.
