Bicycle Equipment and Accessories

The Brakes

There is a choice for braking: acting on the hub or on the rim.

On the hub disc brakes, enjoyed on mountain bike and tandem, have appeared on city bikes. Their response is very precise and very progressive with hydraulic transmission, and they have the advantage of being very sensitive to rain. Warming can in long descent. Maintenance by a specialist.Always on the hub, there is also the drum brakes (or disk wheels), very effective, insensitive to rain as to contamination with a mechanical shut. They are mounted at the front and rear. It is often found in the Dutch bikes or scooters. Recent models have a ventilation system to prevent overheating in the long descents. But defense die: removal is a bit complicated.

The jaw brakes Rim have made great progress, they are quite reliable, especially lighter than the braking systems on the hubs.It is also the right solution if you want to stay in a range of prices not too high.

There still has important nuances in systems with jaws on the rim after mounting type. This is the V-brake that provides the best stopping power. It has gradually replaced the previous systems (side draw, U-brake, cantilever) over which the cable tractive effort was not optimized. Small flaw: its power requires skill for progressive braking. For good efficiency, choose the metal jaws levers (not resin) and aluminum rims (not stainless steel).

The accessories

The accessories are not to be overlooked for regular use, their quality depends on whether you are comfortable or not on your mount. Mandatory or not, they all have an interest according to your needs and your level of requirement.

Rack . A good luggage in town is not a luxury, even if you are not constantly be hanging saddlebags. Of good width, it allows to carry the load that will prevent the backpack, which supports well over short distances, less great distances. At the front, the cart clipped on the handlebar does not enjoy a rather stable binding to its market. The solid front rack is supported from below, with fixings on the axis of the wheel. One like the other, however, can unbalance the bike if they are overloaded. In recent years, there are also front rack that have the distinction of being attached to the frame and not on the fork. The advantage of this type of rack is in a better balance of the bike. The mass transported does not affect driving. Recently a big brand has brought to market a rigid front rack, inexpensive and easy to install which are attached various accessories (basket or bag). Also on the front of the carrier bags attached to the fork at the axle of the wheel, are used by travelers bicycle. They help spread the load.

Crutch. Not always essential if you attach the bike somewhere, but useful nonetheless time to open or close a door, or installing a load. It also avoids leaving his bike on the ground when we must stop parking outside. Most models are equipped with a crutch, but sometimes adjust its length. Two types of crutches stand: lateral (1 press = bicycle leaning) or Central (two presses = vertical bike). In both cases, priority should be given, if possible, the most rigid forms, strong and adjustable.

Retractor of danger . Neither mandatory nor essential, especially if you have a mirror. But enough deterrent for unscrupulous motorists tend to ignore the distance of 1m imposed by the rules of the road to overtake a bike in town. The cheapest accessories.

Child seat . Two systems exist that have been proven: by fixing cantilever on the seat tube of the frame, or placed on the luggage rack. In the first case the seat is suspended, giving a slight flexibility absorbing jolts for the child, and tightening bolts must be perfect. With the second it is obviously a good sized rack.

In one case as in the other, favor the shell that protects the feet to the neck. It is important for the protection of the feet, which should not risk being caught in the spokes. Fasteners for the feet must complete the harness.
