How To Choose The Best Frame For Your Bike

Tagged in FAQs

You’ve got the craving to explore, so you’re ready to hop on a bike and journey into sweet freedom. However, you may be stuck when choosing a frame for a single speed road bike or multi-speed cruiser that best fits your needs.

Depending on your goals and preference in riding, you have to figure out which type of frame will benefit you most. While a steel frame on a bicycle provides a more comfortable ride and is more durable than an aluminum frame, an aluminum frame is heavier and more rigid, giving the bike enthusiast that extra control for serious riding. The strong mechanics of the sixthreezero EVRYjourney is perfectly designed for the weekend trek, while a single speed road bike or the smooth-riding single-speed FIRMSTRONG Urban Man Alloy is made for comfortable commutes in the city.

How To Give Your Bike A Thorough Inspection Before Riding

March 29 2017
Tagged in featured , Mechanic

Just as you need regular checkups, your bicycle needs a thorough routine inspection, too. Even if you are a seasoned rider or have taken an interest in road bikes for beginners, and whether you are about to embark on a demanding journey or simply commuting to work, it is best to briefly inspect your bike to ensure a safe ride.

While not every aspect of your bike must be checked each time your ride, as it would during a tune-up, there are some basic precautions to take before getting on the road or terrain.

Size

If you’re borrowing a bike or your bike has been collecting dust, be sure it is the right fit before you take off. There needs to be at least 1-2 inches of clearance for road bikes, and 2-3 inches for mountain bikes between your crotch and the bar.

Brakes

It is an absolute must to test out your brakes prior to each ride. Squeeze the front and rear brake levers or pedal backward, depending on your bike, to confirm they work. The cushy single-speed sixthreezero Around the Block provides an easy and intuitive braking system suitable for beginners, or for those who wish to have freedom from confusing wiring and parts.

Air

Get in the habit of checking your tires so that you don’t get a flat on the road. If there are cracks or wear on your tires, consider changing the tires soon. You want properly inflated tires at all times so carry your patch kit and pump with you when you ride.

Positioning

Protect your joints by adjusting the seat height and position. When your feet are parallel to the ground, your knee needs to be directly over the center of your front pedal. The sixthreezero In the Barrel is a smooth-riding and awesome bike with customizable cruiser bike parts that allow you to position yourself for the ultimate comfort.

Frame

Take a quick glance at your beach cruiser frame to spot any cracks or damage that may interfere with your ride. Never ride if there is damage.

Chain

Examine chains on road bikes for beginners and all other bikes. The chain should be lubricated and clean to guarantee easier shifts and a smoother ride.

Gears

Bikes with gears must be looked over. To do so, turn the crank, then shift through all the gears to see if the chain jumps a gear on the rear cassette, indicating a need for a change in gears. A reliable and functional cruiser with gears is the FIRMSTRONG Bella Classic 7 Speed that will make the gear check effortless.

A thorough examination is worth the time spent as it will likely assure an effortless ride, giving you more freedom to enjoy the moment. Sign up for our Mailing List below to get exclusive deals on products and more tips on biking.

What's the Difference Between Men And Women’s Cruiser Bike Frames?

March 29 2017
Tagged in FAQs

Uh-oh, your partner got a cruiser and now you’re slightly jealous because they’re having a lot of fun—without you. If you attempted to sneak in a ride while they were not looking, you may have been disappointed to learn that it just didn’t fit you correctly (if your partner is a different gender or height than you). That’s because a men’s cruiser bike frame and a women’s cruiser bike frame tend to differ in size. The thrill-seeking adventurer 7-speed FIRMSTRONG Urban Lady is only 13.5”, making it accessible for people 4’ to 5’1”. Most other beach cruisers for women however, have a 15” frame. In contrast, the towering, smooth-riding single-speed FIRMSTRONG Black Rock has a 19” frame, making it accessible to people 5’5” to 6’5”. Most other men’s cruisers have a 17.5” frame. Make sure you choose the right frame for your height so you can journey into bliss with your partner.

What Are the Best Cruiser Bicycles For Boys?

March 29 2017
Tagged in FAQs

Wondering what the best gift is for a celebration? The greatest invention, a bike, because nothing says freedom and independence like a bicycle for a boy. If a holiday or birthday is approaching, or if you’re in the giving mood, a boy’s beach cruiser can be a wonderful choice if you wish to bond with the recipient, or be their favorite.

When choosing a boy’s beach cruiser, it is important to consider the age and height of the boy because they may outgrow the bike too quickly. It is recommended that you choose a bike a little bit taller than their intended height, so long as they’re comfortably on their tiptoes. For the itty bitty bruiser 2’10” to 3’8” tall, the tough single-speed FIRMSTRONG Mini Bruiser 16" with training wheels is ideal. Boys a bit bigger, about 3’2” to 4’4” tall, will dig the FIRMSTRONG Urban Boy because it glides smoothly and is simply cool. Boys nearing their teenage years, or nearing 5’, should consider adult cruisers for the most fulfilling cruises.
