Maintaing your bike properly from the time you fall in love with it - Part 2

So, hopefully you've read the first post, and now you're back for more of our thoughts on good bicycle maintenance.

We talked about how buying bike upgrades every so often will keep you enthusiastic about your bicycle, learning proper repair techniques will mean you aren't afraid to get your hands dirty and actually enjoy bicycle repair, and the last thing we discussed was how good and little bike maintenance often will reduce the dread of having to carry out maintenance after months of neglect.

So, what's next for cyclists who want to maintain their bikes.

Mopeds: The Urban Loophole Vehicles

On Tynan

I love San Francisco so much that it's almost a problem. When I think about taking a trip somewhere, my next thought is, "yeah, but there's so much awesome stuff going on right here, too." Of course, no city is perfect. San Francisco's faults are common to most big cities: parking is a pain traffic gets unwieldy during rush hour.

Enter the moped. I used to think that "moped" was another name for scooter, but it's not. Considering that mopeds, with a few exceptions, haven't been mass produced since the 1980s, it's not all that surprising that no one knows what they are anymore.

A moped is actually a hybrid between a small motorcycle and a bicycle. They were originally designed for the motors to assist in pedaling, not to completely take over. As small engines became more powerful the need for human power diminished and eventually they were replaced with scooters.
