How to Choose Bike Wheels and Tyres
Axles and Locks
The bicycle is equipped with electronically locking differentials at the front and rear end. When you want to go riding on difficult terrains such as gravel, dirt, snow, or mud or planning to go for the road, you will need to use locking differential i.e., axles and locks. These differentials are only used when you need extra traction so that you can easily engage it for a few times on off road adventures. Axles and locks
help maintain the momentum of your bicycle and prevent it from getting stuck.
Bike inner tubes
Inner tubes are one of the most important parts of your bicycle tires. It is basically an inflatable ring that fits inside the casing of the tire. The inner tubes
when inflated provide structural support and suspension. The tube can be easily inflated with a valve. The inner tube functions as an air cushioning and provides you with a comfortable and safe riding experience.
Bike rims and Spokes
Rims and wheels are often used interchangeably for the same meaning; however, technically they are different. Rim is not the whole wheel but a part of a wheel. Spokes are the connecting rods between the rim and bicycle hub.
The main purpose of rims and spokes
is to transfer the loads caused by the rider or bike between the hub and the rim.
When choosing a bicycle tire you first need to match the diameter of your bike’s wheel and rim to the tire. Most rod bikes, mountain bikes, and cruiser bikes use tires
with a 26 inch diameter.
If you are using a tubeless tire, you will need tubeless compatible wheels for your bike. A growing number of mountain cyclists are opting for tubeless tire bicycles these days.
Bike wheels and Wheel covers
A good working condition set of wheels and wheel covers
can significantly boost your performance. Almost all types of bike riders want to make their bikes as light as possible. Hence, when choosing a wheelset for your bike, you need to consider its weight, stiffness, and durability.
Lighter wheels help your bike accelerate easily. However, light wheels are less durable as compared to heavy wheels.
