The Outspokin Advantage

Thinking about buying a new bicycle? Think of the Outspokin Advantage first! One of your first choices, and not necessarily an easy one, will be where to shop. It can be a challenge because there are a myriad of stores that carry two-wheelers, from specialty retailers, to giant department stores, to backyard garage operations.  We've got nine reasons you should consider us.

Today's Tip

Shifting For The Hills – The best way to shift for climbing (assuming that the hill is challenging, not a short one you can roll right over) is to start in a gear that feels almost too easy and find a nice pedaling rhythm that gets you about half way up the hill. Usually, you will start to “warm-up” to the hill at this point and feel okay because the gear is actually a little bit too easy. At this point, you should shift into a slightly harder gear and see how it feels. This allows using different muscles while covering more ground with each pedal stroke. Depending on the hill, you might find that you can shift several times and actually accelerate over the top of the hill, a great feeling!

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

tire sealant

A usually latex-based liquid with some type of small particle mixed in, that's put inside tubes and tubeless tires to fix flats before they can happen. The sealant particles seal the hole almost immediately so you can keep right on riding.
