Specialized Body Geometry Fit

Specialized's Body Geometry Fit method was developed in a joint venture between Specialized and Dr. Andy Pruitt, Director of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine. The Body Geometry fit process is scientifically proven to increase power, improve knee tracking, reduce injury; and is the same method that is used with top professional riders in all cycling disciplines, that is available at Okoboji Expedition Co.

Drew's Daily Cycling Tip

Got A Flat? Get A New Tube With The Correct Valve - Bicycle inner tubes (the tube is what's inside the tire), use one of two types of valves for inflation: Schrader or Presta. Schrader valves are an exact match with the valves on car tires. They have a spring-loaded valve mechanism inside. (If this mechanism leaks or fails it can be tightened or replaced easily and for very little cost.) Presta valves seal with air pressure. They're lighter and have fewer parts so there's less to go wrong. (This type of valve can be finicky if it gets muddy or clogged with tire sealant.) Presta valves are smaller in diameter than Schraders, so they fit in rim holes made for either type. Schrader valves only fit in rim holes designed for their larger diameter. When buying a pump, be sure it will fit the valve type you have. Most today fit both valves or can easily be converted, but check to make sure.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

compact frame

Standard bicycle frames usually have top tubes that are parallel with the ground. Compact frames have sloping top tubes (lower at the seat tube). This can reduce frame weight, increase pedaling efficiency and speed handling. Compact and standard frames may fit riders differently.
