Cycling Tips and Tricks on the Rise

Posted: May 3, 2011 in Riding Tips

Cycling is very pleasant, routes and tracks that we take must be very diverse. Tracks that tends to fall flat and certainly does not provide many problems for most people, but how when we see a track with a fairly extreme terrain slope.

Hbrcustom this time giving tips and tricks to overcome the difficulties when we are cycling on tracks climb (climb).

Physical preparation is ripe and conditions bike fit would be a key point when we are cycling on the field or track any kind, either flat tracks (horizontal), descent (derived) and Climb (climbs).

The fans all bicycles must frequently cycling on the pavement that tends to smooth, did not rule out the MTB rider also cycling on the pavement for Cross Country or daily in cycling both for work, school or just work out (fitness).

Adjustment of the suspension, shifting techniques (gear transmission), the position seatpost height and body position will determine our comfort when bulldoze a hill.

  • Suspension Adjustment:

These tips for the MTB rider, especially cross-country (XC) for both asphalt and offroad terrain light. When facing slope try lock (lock) your front suspension so as not to work go up – down.

Tips are for the purpose of uphill and when you stand on the saddle (sadle) to conduct a powerful pedal strokes, energy and your energy is not wasted because the front suspension up and down.

The static’s suspension is useful for save our energy when pedaling standing really channeled thorough the crank. For MTB bikes that do not have a lock system, riders should not in a standing position while pedaling on a hill.

To road biker suspension adjustment is not necessary because the front fork is static bike racing.

  • Shifting Technique

These tips apply to MTB rider and Roadbiker, shifting, or better known as the transmission shifting course, already familiar to you sport bike enthusiasts. Bias shifter is located on the handle bar (handlebar steering) our bikes. Shifter is a device that is connected with the FD (front derailleur) and RD (rear derailleur), FD and RD is in charge of shifting gears (chainrings) front and rear.

The right shifting gear at the time of rise will certainly provide comfort for the rider.

  1. For the rider who has the power (energy) and strong leg muscles, not a problem using the chainring (overdrive) front largest and the smallest rear gear, because of shifting to this model will provide maximum acceleration when we ride my bike.
  2. For novice riders using the chainring shifting (gear) next smallest and the largest rear, providing comfort when pedaling the pedals. The consequences of this shifting technique, bike runs slowly. Tips for this technique does not try to stand on the saddle but the speed round pedal stroke rider.

With practice and habit of cycling, we will discover our own ability to leg muscles in the face of terrain slope, the more frequent cycling and practicing the ramp rider can gauge how much gear shifting at the right time to face the climb tracks.

  • Saddle Position and Seat-post height (saddle)

Seat-post (saddle seat) is certainly not integral with the saddle (seat rider). Energy and power riders going across the track uphill (climb), much depleted. Tips for setting seat-post when passing grade is usakan seatpost at maximum position stroke rider.

Measure the length of the foot rider with the meter in order to obtain accurate results, pull the meter from the soles of the feet to the base of the collar. Then measure the length Crank leght (arm crank), such as leg length 75cm and 25cm total lengt crank is 95cm.

Pull the tape upwards from the axis BB (bottom Bracket) up to saddle, adjust the height saddle with the size that you get. The size is a maximum point when our feet pedaling.

If it feels less comfortable reduce height seat-post, keep in mind that the position of the foot should be almost straight when you rise above saddle and soles of the feet on the pedals the pedal at six (180 degrees).
Tips seat-post height setting aims for energy and power rider when pedaling over saddle not wasted.
