  • Quintana Roo Caliente 2004 Full Carbon Fiber Triathlon TT Road Bike 700C - Small

    Pre-owned, in good condition. Fully tested and everything on it works perfectly well. Wheels probably need to be trued properly, as there's a small amount of wobble in the front wheel and a larger amount of wobble in the rear wheel. I'd place the overall condition at about 78%. There is grease in places. The grip and tape are wearing. Brakes work perfectly fine. There are scuffs and dirt consistent with normal wear and tear. There is a scrape at the base of the left handlebar consistent with a fall. No cracks in the frame or any of the components, though. Will be disassembled, packaged carefully, and shipped in a bicycle box. *** Signature confirmation will be required on delivery ***.

  • 26 Or 24 In norco 250 Dirt Jumper Bmx Bike

    Up for auction I have a Norco 250 Dirt Jumper.this frame accepts either 24 or 26in wheels. If you use 26in wheels (like what’s included on the bike) you use disc brakes. If you use 24in wheels the frame has v brake mounts. What you see in the photo is what you get. There’s no cranks included. The frame has no dents, dings, cracks or repairs but has some paint chips and minor scuffs. The fork is a Rock Shox Psylo I’m pretty sure it needs a rebuild as I see oil on the top but still functions. Unsure of stem and bars brand. Wheels are Sun Rhynolite rim bands laced to Shimano hubs. Rear is missing either the cassette or a freewheel. Tires are also mismatched. I’m also selling this locally so may be sold without warning. HAPPY BIDDING!!

Bicycles

Bicycles are available in many designs for different styles of riding. Mountain bikes and road bicycles, for instance, are two of the most common varieties. Understanding bike features and saddle heights will help you make an educated decision about your bicycle purchase.

Which styles of bicycles are available?

BMX bikes, cruisers, Cyclocross bikes, hybrid and comfort bikes, kids bikes, mountain cycles, racing road bikes, and touring road bikes are some common styles. Each has distinctive features that help to adapt it to the particular ground, pace, and agility level.

What are the features of a typical mountain bike?

These bicycles may look like any other sort of bike, but they are adapted to ride on difficult ground conditions with ease, including rocks, mud, and tree roots. Usually, mountain bikes have front or full suspension that allows for more bounce than other frames. Their tires are large and include lots of traction and knobs on the treads. The wheels are also more durable so that they are not disturbed by rocks and natural debris. The brakes are appropriately more powerful to stop the rider short of a cliff or body of water when necessary. Lower gear ratios are also included for climbing very steep terrain.

What are the features of a typical road bike?

Usually, road bikes are made of lightweight material with a composite or carbon fiber front fork. Often, the handlebars are curved under like the horns of a ram. Narrow wheels and tires keep the bike aerodynamic, and there is rarely front or rear suspension. These bikes are designed to be ridden on pavement, like roads and bike paths, rather than on tough terrain. Due to their design, riders can go farther and faster on road bikes than with other bike types although these are not designed to carry a lot of supplies.

How do you properly adjust a bicycle seat?

Ensuring proper saddle height decreases the risk of knee injuries. To measure the correct seat height for you, stand barefoot with your feet about shoulder width apart. Place a yardstick between your legs and pull up slightly to mimic a bicycle, then make a mark on the wall at the height of the yardstick. Measure from the mark to the floor, subtracting 10 centimeters from the measurement. Measure your final calculation height from the middle of the bottom bracket to the top of the saddle, and adjust your bicycle accordingly.
