• What to do if the legs become thick when riding a bicycle

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    When it comes to why cycling, many people will say: lose weight.

    However, many people may not only fail to lose weight, but riding legs become thicker. This is one of the reasons why many beauty-loving girls do not like to ride bicycles.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Is the gearbox of mountain bikes as many as possible?

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    Bikers who often ride mountain bikes cross country know that in the process of cycling, the three-disc configuration is actually not very useful. Take me as an example. In the era of 3 discs, I would basically use the big disc to ride on the road, the middle disc for climbing or cross-country. For the adjustment of the front and rear speed ratio, I used more on the rear derailleur. It is not needed because it is too "light" and it feels like kicking in the air. And in use, the 3-disk system will have a lot of overlap between the front and rear speed ratios, which is actually too redundant.

  • Why is it not recommended to mix and match brake levers and calipers between different brands or models?

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    The first is the problem of brake fluid. If different brands use different brake fluids, the seals used will be quite different. For example, the brakes using DOT oil and the brakes using mineral oil are different in the selection of seals. There is a big difference because the DOT requires a stronger corrosion resistance of the seal.

  • Why don't mountain bikes install foot support

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    I generally do not recommend riders to install foot supports, especially riders who like high-speed riding and off-road. When parking, please tilt your bicycle down to the left. Note: It must be the left side, because there is a fragile rear derailleur on the right side of the bike, and the bike is placed down to the left so that you can pick up the bike and step up from the left side (there are not many left-handers, right?)! There are also friends equipped with disc brakes when you put your bike down to the left, pay attention to the disc not to hit the protrusions on the ground to prevent the disc from being deformed by external forces.

  • Why are mountain bikes not equipped with mudguards?

    0 comments / Posted by Trifox Team

    1. The mudguard is basically ineffective in riding activities.
    2. The mudguard will increase energy consumption during riding activities.
    3. will increase the probability of failure. Therefore, this type of mountain bike does not require mudguards. If the subject is only doing slow riding on general roads, you can use a station wagon.
    4. The hidden safety hazards of mudguards: general mudguards are made thin and wide, and the materials are mostly steel, aluminum, plastic, resin, and other materials with certain hardness. It's like a knife without a blade. In other words, it is a sharp protrusion on a vehicle. When the cyclist accidentally crashed, the kinetic energy is very large at this time. This sharp protrusion is very easy to cut your skin under the huge kinetic energy, especially in the summer when the riders wear very little and their bodies are exposed. The parts are many.
