yourself, how much money did you save and if you save e.g. $200; can you afford it when
you are riding the bike for at least 2 to 3 years before you want to upgrade.
I would weight the choice base on this:
1. Which bike is lighter?
2. Which bike has been overall equipped with better compononts and yet
be still easily upgradable?
3. What about the saddle, does it fit you?
Have been riding a couple of MTBs for more than two decades, the AVA 1.0 is a good
investment and a joy to ride. The bike is lighter than other MTBs in its class.
Most beginners are not able to know the difference of riding a heavier bike vs a lighter one.
However seasoned riders will want to ride a lighter bike anytime.
To keep off the pounds you have to work hard at it.
1. Control very strictly your diet. Don't eat things that you like, so be disciplined.
Don't take supper if you can. Just drink more liquid.
2. Go for at least twice a week of 2 to 3 hours of disciplined riding.
3. Fix a Cat Eye Micro Wireless Cyclocomputer to your bike and keep peddling at constant
25 km/hr for at least 20 to 30 minutes, go slow to recoup oxygen and then repeat
again. You should go for at least a 20km ride to be effective.
Wow, you go back home and weight yourself on a weight machine,
you will be surprise at the result.
3. You will soon loose kilos in no time.
because of their belief system that they should cut cost and use the minimum sum
to enjoy their hobby. This won't work for them and in the end they will find frustration,
dismay and under performed.
The meter cost less than eight five bucks in Sing dollars and it will last you a couple
of years. You don't have to change the battery for at least three years if you are riding
only two or three times a week. I bought mine five years ago and only change the
battery once. The two batteries cost me only three dollars.
Essential accessories help you to enjoy your activities more, equipping the right thing
on your bike is the answer. But if you think you cannot afford it, then I think your have
to renew your belief system.
Enjoy riding my friend.
I am a MTB newbie. Where is a beginner friendly trial in SG?
Tell them your bike has a flat... so you can't ride. That should put them in a good samaritan mood I am sure heh.
The other is to call for a cab and tell them you have a bike you want to put in the boot. That way you will bet a taxi willing to pick you up if he choose to.
I sometime do this as I am too tired or for some reason decided to take a taxi home after I got too far for my own good heheheh.. sometime you over estimate how fit you are especially you have not ride in a long long while and you just did a distance too far or you rode too fast one way and forgot you need to get back home in equal distance heh.
For practical reason sometimes we have to face reality. Having style but loosing out
on the practical issue can be a bad choice.
Front and rear bicycle baskets including panniers, pet carriers, heavy duty racks even
baby seats are available at:
Surprised they have horns, bells and radios as well. I have a small bag and attached
it near to the centre of the handle bar. In it I have the choice to include a radio or
chocolate bars whenever I go riding.
