  • The Vilano 2 in 1 Balance Bike Kid’s Pedal Bicycle

    Learning to ride a bike has never been easier for children than with the Vilano 2 in 1 Balance Bike Kid’s Pedal Bicycle. A child will find it simple to transition from coasting along on a balance bike, to pedaling with training wheels, to pedaling unassisted with this awesome convertible bicycle.

    Children can learn to balance with minimal help. A balance bike (or push bike) is a bike with no pedals which a child sits on and propels by walking or running. With pedaling out of the picture, children may fully concentrate on balancing with the confidence of having their feet close to the ground.

    The Vilano 2 in 1 Balance Bike Kid’s Pedal Bicycle comes in vivid pink and cool blue. It has an adjustable seat and handlebars for a perfect fit as your child grows. This convertible bike has 12" pneumatic tires and includes a handlebar pad, bell and training wheels.

    Once the child is comfortable cruising on the balance bike, he/she will be ready in no time to pedal! To convert the Vilano 2 in 1 from balance bike to a pedal bike, simply add the crank and training wheels, and then adjust the rear wheel in the dropout.

    Remember, basic bike safety rules apply to children too! Children should always wear a helmet and stay away from traffic. Starting children early on a balance bike can lead them to a lifetime love for biking as a great form of exercise and physical activity.

    Available at RoadBikeOutlet.com, the Vilano 2 in 1 Balance Bike Kid’s Pedal Bicycle is a great way to learn, and ride!

  • Spin Class, Spin Shoes... is your head spinning yet?

    When the air temperature drops, perhaps so does your motivation to get outside for a workout. Consider trying a spin cycling class! This awesome inside stationary bike workout can be performed year round at your local gym no matter the cold, wind or precipitation. The spin class bikes allow you to adjust the tension to simulate hills. Even though you may not be moving, you still get the benefits of riding outdoors with elevation changes.

    Considered a low-impact exercise (easier on your joints than running, for example), anyone can do a spinning class. It’s a great cardio and calorie-burning workout with the camaraderie of a motivating group environment. The music is always fun and upbeat, too!

    If you have already signed up for your first spin class and are wondering what to wear, regular workout clothes are fine (you may want to avoid long/baggy pants, however). Cycling shorts aren’t mandatory, but may increase your comfort level as you get used to being on a bike saddle. Normal flat soled athletic shoes are fine to wear, especially for beginners. Spin shoes with cleats that clip into the bike’s pedals can make your workout more effective and may be required for come classes.

    You may be wondering exactly how a spinning shoe may help you in your spin class. Cycling specific shoes have stiff soles that enable powerful pedaling strokes. They can be used with so called “clipless” pedals. These types of pedals ease a push/pull action as well as more efficient pedal strokes.

    While conventional road cycling shoes may be used for spin class, there are also spin shoes made just for this purpose. Many mountain bike shoes work too, including the Gavin Mountain Spin Cycling Bike Shoe MTB. The advantage to wearing a sneaker style spin shoe like this is the cleat is recessed into the sole so you may walk around comfortably. These spinning shoes are made of breathable micro fiber fabric and have three adjustable Velcro closures to ensure a perfect fit.

    The Gavin Mountain Spin Cycling Bike Shoes MTB are compatible with SPD, SPD-R and SPD-L cleats. The SPD system is short for Shimano Pedaling Dynamics, and is an industry standard. This two-hole system is used on most mountain bike shoes and some road shoes.

    Check with your gym/spin instructor for specific cleat or MTB shoe and spin shoe compatibility questions before you purchase shoes for spinning class. The Shimano Compatible SPD Cleats work for the Gavin MTB Spin Shoes, and are available to order from RoadBikeOutlet.com.

    A spinning class is a great way to burn some calories, tone your legs and butt, and make some new friends. Visit your local gym and take a class soon!

  • What's SUP with Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boards?

    With stand up paddle boarding riding an epic wave of popularity, sales of inflatable stand up paddle (SUP) boards are blowing up as well!

    RoadBikeOutlet now carries three different SUP boards. The Aqua Marina SPK-1, SPK-2 and SPK-3 are rigid when inflated and have a similar feel to a hard board, but are considerably more portable and easier to store.

    These inflatable SUP boards are made from commercial grade PVC material with drop-stitch construction. All three boards have a D rings for cargo, a leash, or even convert the SPK-1 and -2 boards to a sit down kayak by adding the handy Kayak Seat! The three fin set up (one large fin in the center, two smaller fins on each side is perfect for tracking on flat water, while the anti-slip deck pad will keep you on your feet. Included with each package are the SUP board, 3 piece paddle, starter pump, three fins, a patch/repair kit and a carry bag.

    The origins of modern stand-up paddling (and many other water sports) are most likely Hawaiian. The “beach boys” of Waikiki combined their skills at surfing and outrigger canoe paddling, eventually using the stand-up boards to keep a bird’s eye view of their students taking surf lessons. In more recent times, surfers would resort to standing up on large boards on small surf days while waiting for the next big swell.

    Folks from St. Augustine to Seattle, from the Great Lakes to backyard ponds (and beyond!) are enjoying inflatable SUP boards for flat water paddling fun.

    A SUP board is considered by the Coast Guard a vessel when used “beyond the narrow limits of a swimming, surfing or bathing area.” If this is the case, one must wear a lifejacket and carry a whistle. If a stand up paddle board is used within a designated “swimming, surfing or bathing area,” the Coast Guard does not consider it to be a vessel.

    Think about an inflatable stand up paddle board as a durable, lighter and versatile alternative to traditional hard SUP boards. Whether you live in a landlocked area or have a vacation coming up by the sea, all you need is some water and a sense of adventure to enjoy the latest water sport craze of stand up paddle boarding.

  • How to Clean Your Bike

    Cleaning your bike is simple and a crucial part of bike ownership.

    All those moving parts are constantly exposed to the elements, road debris and dirt. To keep your bike working correctly and safely, a regular cleaning routine is a must. If your bike is kept clean, it will be easier to spot potential issues before you get out on the road or trail.

    While it may be tempting to hook up the power washer and shoot the bike with a jet stream of water, this is not a great idea. Along with the dirt, you’ll also blast away the grease that should be there, which has the all important job of lubing the bike’s various components. You will also risk damaging the bearings systems.

    All you need for a good basic bike cleaning are a few fresh rags or sponges, a couple of different size brushes, a degreaser like Simple Green, diluted dishwashing detergent or a bike specific wash, a bucket or two, and a chamois cloth or towel for drying.

    Set your bike up on a repair stand or even your car’s hitch mount bike rack so you don’t have to hunch over it. Pour water from a bucket on or wet the bike with your hose (lightly, just a dribble). Remember-no blasting! You merely want to wet the bike to loosen any stubborn caked on dirt or grime so you don’t scratch the frame when you begin wiping it.

    Fill a bucket with detergent and water, grab a sponge or rag and get cleaning. Wipe the bike with sudsy water. Use a brush for hard to reach places like around the fork, brakes or hubs. Does your bike have standard brakes? Then clean your rims well; this is your braking surface after all!

    Rinse the bike with a bucket of clean water. Or if you decide to hose it down, spray it lightly. Dry the bike thoroughly with an unsoiled towel or chamois cloth.

    Once the bike is clean and dry, if you want the job to be a little easier next time, use some silicon spray on the frame. It will make your bike look pretty and shiny, with the added bonus of repelling dirt and water. Be sure to spray only the frame, though; take care to stay away from the wheels, rims, brakes and chain. Relubricate your chain with a good bike chain lube (there are many fine products available, ask your local bike shop for their recommendation).

    You are now ready to set out on your clean machine!

    Get into a good bike hygiene regimen. Repeat these basic cleaning steps as often as necessary. This is an easy and essential part of owning a bike. On a dirt free bike, it is easier to see potential maintenance problems and get them straightened out. Plus your bike will look great as you ride off down the road.

  • Wall and Bench Mounted Bicycle Repair Stands

    Knowing a few simple bike maintenance tricks and routine repairs can be a satisfying and important part of bike ownership. But what if you just don’t have enough room to accomplish these tasks?

    Before you give up and bring your bike to a shop, consider a wall or workbench mounted bike repair stand.

    Bicycle repair stands come in many shapes and sizes from heavy duty professional style bike mechanic stands like you’d find at your local bike shop, to the lightweight folding portable home bike repair stand. Wall or bench mounted stands are the most compact repair stands available and are perfect if your space is limited.

    Conquer Bench Mount Bicycle Repair Stand Bike Rack Conquer Bench Mount Bicycle Repair Stand Bike Rack 

    If you are short on garage or basement space, yet have a sturdy workbench, consider the Conquer Bench Mount Bicycle Repair Stand Bike Rack. This repair stand has a quick release that easily adjusts the height or turns the stand out of the way when not in use. The offset base plate allows ample room to spin your bike’s pedals. The head swivels 360° so you can work on your bike at any angle.

    Another great option for the workbench is the Conquer Bench Mount Bicycle Repair Stand Bike Rack. Super compact and sturdy, it is easily attached to virtually any bench. The arm extends 10” from the bench while the rotating head can adjust the protective rubber clamp to any angle.

    No bench? No problem! The Conquer Wall Mount Bike Repair Stand Bicycle Mechanic Workstand is the ultimate space saver. The mounting plate is easily attached to any stud or post and the stand’s arm detaches from the plate and can be easily stowed when not in use. The arm extends 14” from the wall, and the rubber coated clamp can grab tubes from 30mm to 75mm.

    The easily detachable Conquer Bicycle Wall Mount Repair Stand Bicycle Rack-Rotating Head is one more fantastic option for fixing your bike when space is at a premium. Adjust the quick release clamp to any angle while clamping the top tube or seatpost (be careful if it’s a carbon bike) with its locking 360° rotating head.

    This bike repair stand’s angle can also be adjusted at the wall plate. When not in use, it quickly detaches from the wall plates (it comes with two so you may move to another spot).

    Without this service you would receive the bike dealer ready, in the factory packaging, and 90% assembled.  Dealer ready means that the bikes will require tuning of the front and rear derailleurs, adjusting the brakes and truing the wheels. Improper assembly voids warranty on the bike so if you decide to opt out of this service you will need to take your bike to an authorized dealer for assembly.

    • Add additional lubrication

    You will need to attach the pedals, saddle, front wheel, front brake and the handlebars. That's it!

    The left pedal screws on counterclockwise as if you're sitting on the bike. The right screws on clockwise as if you're sitting on the bike. Use lease hand tighten carefully. Once you are sure you did not cross thread the pedals, and after they are attached firmly, you can tighten. Be careful as threaded parts are not covered under warranty.

  • Reasons to Ride Your Bike to Work

    Part of the Bike Month festivities every year, Bike to Work Day is the third Friday in May. Do you need reasons to spend more time in the saddle? Here are six good ones:

    You will save money. Gas prices are near an all time high. With the money you bank from commuting by bike, you can buy new fun bike gear!

    You will help the environment. No emissions or fumes come from a pedal powered bike.

    You will see things you may have missed while behind the wheel of your car. Like a giant blue heron spearing a fish in the pond you pass every day. Or a five dollar bill on the road’s shoulder.

    You will not be at the mercy of your spin instructor. Because you won’t need spin class anymore! Commuting by bike is keeping fit with a purpose.

    You will not miss bumper to bumper traffic. The bored commuters sitting stationary in their cars will look at you with envy and longing as you glide past them in the bike lane carefree and car-free.

    You will feel happier. There is no better way to start your day then with fresh air and exercise. Your attitude will rub off on your co-workers and who knows? You may very well mobilize a helmeted and proud fleet of bicycle commuters.

    Get your bike out of the garage, and get to work under your own power.  The rewards are great!
