  • Basic Cycling Skills - Cadence

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    Academia has conducted extensive research on the optimal cadence. As early as 1929, Hartree and Hill pointed out that there was an optimal cadence. When a cyclist’s pedaling frequency is too low, unstable output power and muscle relaxation will waste energy. But when the cyclist pedals too fast, the body also loses energy in order to overcome the resistance inside the muscles. So there must be an ideal cadence between the two. However, Hartree and Hill did not give exact values.

  • Bicycle tires are more likely to blow out in summer

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    Any object has the characteristics of thermal expansion and contraction. In the hot summer, when we are enjoying the cold ice cream, we will find that there is cold air flowing down around the ice cream. This is because the air close to the ice cream cools down, becomes heavier than the surrounding air, and flows downward. Not only is the air very hot in summer, but the ground is also heated by the sun. When a bicycle is exposed to the sun, the air in the tire is constantly squeezing the tire after being heated and expanded. If the air in the tire hits too much, or there is a weak spot on the tire, it will squeeze the tire.

  • Clincher, tubeless, and hookless tubeless tires have such a big difference in tire pressure. Have you set it right?

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    "2021 GIANT TCR hookless tubeless tire wheels, what kind of tires can be used?", After the release, judging from the message, many cyclists are not very clear about how much tire pressure they use, and there are not a few who use too high tire pressure. Today I wrote an article to talk about tire pressure. I checked the information and found that the situation is more complicated than we thought. Road tires and wheels are too split. A few years ago, when the mainstream road tires were 21c and 23c, tire pressures exceeding 100 psi was a normal operation, and many people believed that high tire pressures resulted in low rolling resistance and fast cycling. However, it is only on an ideal flat road, the actual road is rugged, and the bouncing caused by high tire pressure will absorb energy, which is equivalent to increasing the rolling resistance. This is why road bike tires are becoming wider and wider. 25c has become the mainstream. As aerodynamic wheels become wider and wider, 28c has a tendency to replace them. At present, the inner width of the rim of road bikes has also developed from 19mm to 21mm. After many 25c tires are installed, the actual expansion width has reached 28mm.

    Let's talk about wired and wireless cycling stopwatches. Many friends like to measure their speed per hour and the distance of long-distance riding through the cycling stopwatch. Of course, it is very convenient to download the cycling notes to record the usual trajectory. But according to personal needs to install the cycling stopwatch, the current cycling stopwatch is mainly divided into two types of wired and wireless, do you think is the wired cycling stopwatch is better or wireless?

  • Is the weight of a mountain bike really that important?

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    "How heavy is your bike?" This question may have been asked by many people, but does a mountain bike be good if it is light? Does the weight of the bike really mean that the bike is poor? Does the quality of your ride depend entirely on the weight of the bike? Or should we completely stop pursuing the stupid behavior of lightweight?

    Light means it is a good bike, and a heavy one means it is a low-end bike. This is a saying that bicycles have been circulating for decades. Since the 1990s, this situation has continued for quite some time, and many drivers have spent a lot of time or even their lives for this, and even the handlebars will break due to daily punctures. Fortunately, due to continuous testing and production process improvement, the problem of strength and safety for many years seems to have been resolved. However, the importance of the weight surface has not diminished.

  • In a day, when is the best time for cycling?

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    In the morning, at noon, or at night, when would you choose to exercise? Of course, your exercise time is limited by your work and study.

    However, if you can choose arbitrarily, is there an optimal exercise time? Experts say: Yes. But this time depends to a large extent on yourself.

    In recent years, scientists have been constantly exploring the relationship between the biological clock and exercise, in order to find a time that can consume the most fat every day.

    Repairing bicycles is a technical task. So in the eyes of many people, even if it is troublesome, the first choice after any breakdown of the bicycle is still to go to the repair shop. It turns out that the so-called fault may be a small problem that the repairer can solve by dripping the oil and tightening the screws. In order to avoid similar situations, today we have sorted out 16 common faults of bicycles to help you judge the condition of the bike:

  • Why is it said that cycling is more effective than running?

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    Although riding a bicycle is relatively easy, in terms of changes in the number of heartbeats, the heartbeat of a bicycle has a greater change. The greater the change in a heartbeat, the greater the burden on the body, so the greater the amount of exercise. Therefore, the advantage of cycling is that it feels very relaxed, but the amount of physical exercise can be achieved quickly!

  • Why do some bike enthusiasts switch mountain bikes to road bikes?

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    Mountain bikes, as the name suggests, are more suitable for cycling on mountainous and rugged roads. The frame of mountain bikes is more rugged, strong, and has better shock absorption performance. Mountain bikes have front fork shock absorbers, and some have rear shock absorbers. Wide cycling comfort is higher, generally wider straight handles are used, and the handling is better, but the resistance is relatively large and the speed is relatively slow when cycling. Road bikes are mainly used for cycling on highways or on relatively flat roads. In order to increase speed and reduce wind resistance, the frame is relatively slender. Generally, there is no shock absorption mechanism. The bending handles are used. When cycling, you need to lean down, the seat is narrow and long, and the cycling comfort is Slightly inferior to mountain bikes, but cycling faster and faster.

  • Six reasons and solutions for abnormal disc brakes

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    First you have to make sure your wheels are installed in place. For non-bucket axle wheels, first, confirm whether your wheels have been installed in place. Open the quick release, press the frame with your body, and then lock the quick release in place. Incorrect installation will cause the disc to tilt against the disc. For the barrel axle wheelset, before adjusting the position of the brake caliper, the barrel axle rod must be locked to a predetermined torque and then adjusted to prevent the disc position from changing after disassembling the wheelset.
