Urban Gear: WheelNutz


  • Gravity locking system that secures to your front wheel
  • Easy installation - only requires a 15mm wrench (No keys)
  • WheelNutz provide internal "lock-out" function and can only be removed by turning the bike upside down 180 degrees


WheelNutz merupakan salah satu produk bike lock dari Kryptonite. Berfungsi untuk mengamankan roda, alat ini sama seperti nut biasa, proses mengencangkan nut-nya sama seperti nut biasa, namun saat ingin membuka nut-nya, anda harus memposisikan sepeda dengan roda diatas.

Bike, upside down
WheelNutz cocok bagi sepeda yang menggunakan as standar pada hub-nya (tidak kompatibel dengan as quick release). Anda tinggal parkir, kunci frame dan roda belakang pada tiang, etc. dan walk away. No need to release wheel and attach that with extra lock.

Urban Gear: Skateboard Helmet VS Bike Helmet

Di pasaran, saat ini ada 2 tipe helm yang biasanya digunakan untuk commuting, model seperti skate helm (biasa dipake BMX atau DJ rider) dan helm standar sepeda. 


VS



Jika anda bingung memilih tipe helm yang cocok bagi anda, ini beberapa hal yang perlu anda pertimbangkan:

1. Ventilasi

Helm model skate minim ventilasi dibandingkan helm standar sepeda, cocok digunakan saat musim hujan. Namun saat digunakan di musim panas, tampaknya anda perlu keramas setiap kali selesai bersepeda :D.

2. Area of protection

Pada bagian, ini, helm model skate lebih baik daripada helm standar sepeda. Kenapa? dengan minimnya lubang ventilasi, desain membulat serta lebih panjang di bagian belakang, memberikan proteksi maksimum di area otak.

3. Weight

Untuk hal ini, tentatif sebetulnya. Tergantung brand dan tipe helmnya. Namun pada umumnya helm standar sepeda lebih ringan daripada helm model skate. 

Nah, itu 3 hal yang perlu anda pertimbangkan, pilih yang sesuai dengan kondisi anda. Jangan lupa pakai helm ya setiap riding. Stay safe so we can cycling all along.

Are You A Modern Roadie?



Taken from bikeradar.com, this is a 20 sign you're a modern roadie :D

You know you're a modern roadie when…

20.    You return from an epic ride to find your GPS didn’t record and it feels like you just wasted your day and energy.

19.    Your gears stopped working… because of a dead battery.

18.    Your first ride of 2015 was on 2 January. All the achievable Strava KOMs were already taken. 

17.    You work out indoors on windy days because your aerodynamic frame and wheels are just too scary outside.

16.    A rest day is when your GPS is turned off.

15.   You can't train indoors because your computer has a virus.

14.    You’re involved in a crash and you get X-rays… of your bike for insurance purposes. The sore ribs go ignored.

13.   You see someone wearing a tiger-print skinsuit and your first thought is ‘brave’.

12.    A car hits you because they didn’t see your ‘murdered-out’ bike and matching kit. Luckily, you caught the whole thing in HD video.

11.  Your brakes are leaking oil.

10.  Your power meter keeps cutting out – you decide it’s pointless to ride like this.

9.    Distracted by your GPS, you hit the back of a car. (Perhaps using your Garmin while riding is no different to drivers texting?)

8.   It’s wet outside, so you wonder if you should just ride your cyclocross bike on the road today?

7. You get a flat and find neither you nor anyone in your group has a 60/80mm valve tube. You call a cab/your spouse, delete the file off your GPS and pretend the ride never happened.

6. Your heart rate/cadence/speed or power sensor malfunctions and picks up the data of a young-gun riding past. You immediately screen-shot the effort. 

5. You can’t operate your bike computer because the touchscreen doesn’t work with the gloves you’re wearing.

4. You have a Gran Fondo coming up, but can’t decide whether to use 50/34, 52/36 or 53/39 gearing on the front. And the rear cassette is a whole other drama! 

3. You're sitting at the lights and go to push off – you shift for a gear but nothing happens. You quickly hear the laughter of your mate riding off and look down to find you’ve been unplugged.

2. Fixing a bottom bracket creak is no longer a matter of reaching for a wrench and grease. It now requires a hammer, a cup remover, a headset press, a new bottom bracket and a whole bunch of Loc-tite.

1. Your crankset tells you not to quit your day job.



Sometimes, old school is cool

Urban Bike: Foffa Urban 7



FRAMESET – Lightweight Chromoly 4130 steel for extra flexibility and a fairly compact geometry for additional comfort and responsiveness. It has eyelets to fit a rear rack and mudguards as well as a set of bottle cage bosses, to make it fully functional.

GROUPSET – 7-speed Shimano Nexus hub to make it ideal for any hilly ride and Revo Gear Shifter for low effort rotational twist shifting and comfortable handling.



WHEELSET – 40mm double wall Foffa alloy rims laced to track hubs for a robust feel and 700x28c puncture protection tyres" for smooth rides on most terrains.

WEIGHT – 12.9 kg

Hmmm...nice bike eh? 7sp internal gear hub, high wall rims and single speed look. Look perfectly suit a "urban assault" bike. It's a "fixie" look with multi gear performance.

I love her clean simple look and classic geometry.



Here's a review from web about her:

In fact, it's more than pleasant, it's lots of fun. The bars are narrow enough for traffic gap-storming without crossing into knuckles-against-the stem fixie hipster territory and the handling is steady and forgiving without being dull.

The Shimano Nexus 7 hub gear has a range of 244 percent. The trade-off for its simplicity and ease of use is that you don't get the gear range of a typical double-chainset system, which is more like 340 percent. But in practice all that means is that you have to choose the gear range you'll use most.


For the flatlands of Cambridge, I spent most of my time in the middling gears, never used the top ratio and hardly ever the second-from-top. If I lived somewhere hillier, I'd fit a bigger sprocket to drop the whole range and enjoy gravity's free ride on the descents.

The Urban's fairly short stem had me wishing for a bit more room. I wanted to be able to lean into the bike a bit more. It's fine if you like a very upright riding position, but even on flat-bar bikes I like to stretch out.

Quills may be hip and retro, but there's no practical excuse for them in this day and age. road.cc
