Bicycle Safety: How to Not Get Hit by Cars

The Bicycle Academy : Cycle frame building school | Make a bike. Make a difference. Learn how to build a bicycle frame, keep the skills and give your first bike to someone who really needs it. We give people the lessons, skills and kit to design and make their own bikes. But there’s a big difference. Each ‘Classic Framebuilding Course’ student at The Bicycle Academy makes a bike designed especially to use in Africa. We’ve based our TBA Africa bike on the Buffalo Bike designed specifically for people in Africa. We know frame-building classes aren’t cheap and if you don’t have a workshop nearby with all the kit it’ll be hard for you to make another bike.

Bianchi Military Folding Bicycle ‘Model 1912′ | The BSA & Military Bicycle Museum Bianchi Spring-Frame Military Folding Bicycle ‘Model 1912′ with Solid Tyres ‘Modello Militare Brevettato (Tipo per Truppa)’ The history of Bianchi is also an essential part of the history of Italy. The Bersaglieri were already well-established as cycle troops. Before WWI began, Bianchi, with production figures of 45,000 bicycles, 1,500 motorcycles and 1,000 cars per year, was asked to design and produce military vehicles. Featuring rear suspension and sprung front forks, as well as being a folding machine, this is probably my most ‘exotic’ bicycle. The Bianchi folds very easily, as you can see above; the small wheels are definitely an advantage while folding. Like so much of military bicycle history, various information I’ve read in my research on the Italian machines is contradictory. Until 1910, the Bersaglieri cycle troops used civilian bicycles. This machine could be considered the ancestor of the modern mountain bike. SPRING-FRAME v CAPTAIN GERARD 7th Regiment

Spring/Summer Bicycle Accessories With spring in high gear and summer right around the corner, what better way to celebrate than with some long bike rides? Since you've already picked up a bike from our seasonal bicycle guide, we've put together a brief list of some of our favorite accessories for your spring pedaling. Conceived with the sporting cyclist in mind, Brooks' B15 Swallow Select saddle was originally patented in 1937. This reproduction brings back the timeless design of hand-hammered copper rivets paired with a rich organic leather that breaks in for an ergonomic, customize fit better than other standard leather saddles. Although its minimal silhouette and aggressive design was originally intended for the avid road cyclist, this saddle also performs quite well for the ride-to-the-office-and-then-to-the-pub cyclist. Dropping in June, the B15 Swallow Select will sell for €190. Linus Bikes' Market Bag is the ideal addition to any grocery-getter.

Oversimplified: Steel Vs. Aluminum Most city bikes are built on either steel or aluminum frames, and which one you pick will impact the life of your bike, even the quality of the ride. Read on for the how and why, and we'll help you navigate the materials market. Aluminum frames are generally stiffer than steel, resulting in a harsher ride. When fractions of a second count, track racers prefer that rigidity. No frame material is more durable than steel. The same isn't true for aluminum. Think about it like this: glass will break before it bends. There's a misconception that steel frames are heavy, and aluminum frames are light. See, to make aluminum frames strong enough to ride, builders have to make the tubes larger, using more material. How can you tell? Our bikes are made from a very strong and very light steel alloy called 4130 chromoly. We build with 4130, but there are lots of kinds of steel, and not all are created equal. Cheap bikes often use straight gauge HiTensil steel.
