Bike Adventure


In my heart I always wanted an Italian Bikes
If the world of high fashion trends set Italian names, in the world it is the same situation on the bikes. Bikes from Pinarello or Colnago simply draw themselves attention, when you see them on the street, but the price is too significant for some of the average people in the society. Basically, as I understand, nor Colnaghi or Pinarello, aluminum is not their major material - the whole frame are made of carbon. This trend is quite expected considering the high status of these manufacturers.
There are Bianchi – which is not in high status as a fashion bikes manufacturer, but, in my eyes, Bianchi has lost its Mojo, when they moved away from the traditional monochrome "Celeste" and began to paint their frames in other colors. Yes even the reviews about it aluminium bike from Bianchi is not the best. The price is still too expensive, as it made of Italian.
There are other Italian brands such as Sensa , for example, but it's in the same road bike category that tracks with the Giants.
Viva l'Italia liberata e redenta
For inspiration, last month I went to the most famous Dutch bicycle shop - Math Salden . The store is located in the province of Limburg, in the town Limbriht. Entering the Math Salden shop it likes you are visiting the bike museum - in order to touch Pinarello Dogma 2 or Trek Livestrong. There's your road bikes bought every second bike mania in Holland. 
The shop that even produces its own brand of carboxylic bike - Massini (today if you have a design and MDL frame, each party may be ordered from China or Taiwan). 
Math Salden is the official dealer of many well-known brands of bicycles, among which the Italian bike manufacturer Wilier. This brand is established for over 100 years, and the name, though, and looks like the French, actually comes from the slogan " Viva l'Italia e liberata redenta! ", which means" Yes Zdravstujte Italy, liberated and redeemed! There are very interesting story about Wilier brand which you can read about here.
I immediately laid my eyes on two models: carbon Wilier Isoard XP and Aluminum Wilier Triestina La.
Both fit into my budget: Carbon - 1400 euro, aluminum - 1200. I really had decided to "walk the whole hog" and get away with carbon.
In the minds of pop paintings movers, trains, and opens up the eyes become apparent details of the transaction. Isoard XP - factory equipment set with chastchinym using Shimano 105 , and La Triestina - shoplifting equipment set with full useShimano Ultegra .
Here it is click on all levels. Wilier Triestina La - bike handsome. As of Custom PACKAGE, kotoroya should, according to my calculations, cost 300 euros more expensive. Reasons for sale - most likely Math Salden merges model 2012 (almost all manufacturers and batches of frames already shown line 2013). You can also visit for more detail about the bikes.

Technical features of a road bike

Road bike can be clearly identified with the other types of bikes. Even the layman covers many technical features of a road bike, which distinguish it from others. A road bike can be recognized by its various features. In this case, they are clearly limited by the provisions of the regulation at competitive racing bikes. This is related among other things, such as the weight, frame structure and the handlebar shape.

Weight and tires

A common road bike weighs are 6-9 kg. Equipped with the narrow rims, wherein a diameter of 622 mm are standard. In triathlon races , smaller wheel diameter is used. Classic Tubular tires are for recreational.

Handlebars and circuit

Of course, a road bike part that hold wheel is referred to as a bow arm. The handlebars  are  usual narrow  up to 44 centimeters. The distance between the handlebars depends on the rider and should be less than a few inches to shoulder width. The grip positions vary. During the time trial and triathlon, the rider's arms are located on the handlebar. Derailleurs and rim brakes are standard equipment of every racing bike, with two wheels for professional and three chainrings wheels for recreational.

The accessory

Thus the weight of a racing bike can be kept as low as possible by exclude the accessories. Racks, fenders and kickstand you will never find in a road bike, a lighting system is only used during training and for leisure activities. The only accessories are possibly is the  water bottle holders that are mounted on the down tube or seat tube.

The frame

The frame structure is also can contribute on the weight reduction, which it normally created in the shape of a diamond. The different materials used will significantly affect their riding behavior of the road bike. The manufacturing processes will also influence the price of the bikes, the aluminium road bikes are among the cheapest.
The saddle
Saddle is also need to be carefully considered, the tip of about 2 to 10 centimeters is positioned behind the bottom bracket of the road bike. The saddle height exceeds the height of the handlebar. The optimal seat height is determined by the rider's body size.
