Sometimes, sometimes I want to drive my bicycle to where the human foot has not set foot. Hills, branches, pits are natural obstacles that are very difficult to overcome on this vehicle. A two-pendant bicycle is a way out of this situation. It is specially designed to overcome serious natural obstacles. So which bicycle is better: two-pendant or one-pendant?
What is Doubles
There are three types of bikes in terms of depreciation. They differ among themselves by their emollient properties. So, the two-pendant bike has the highest degree of depreciation among all the others.
What are the bikes
In nature, there is either a single-pendant or two-pendant bicycle. But there is also a third class - unfounded. Such vehicles do not have shock absorbers at all. They have a hard fork. To all-out bicycles are all city, folding and children's two-wheeled friends.
Under a single-sided take take a normal mountain bike. A characteristic feature of them is a rigid frame and a fork, which partially damages the blows. In other words, they are also called hardite, which means "heavy or strong tail".
Well, two-podvesvesy. The English call them fuls (full suspension), which means "full suspension". They have two shock absorbers that save the lower part of the bicyclist from the sick landings.
The device of a double-wishbone
All bikes of this type are equipped with two forks. This is what he was called. One - on the front wheel, and the second - on the rear. The fork is usually made more advanced than on the hardtails. It is made with a twenty-centimeter reserve of working stroke, which is enough for quite serious jumps. The rear shock absorber is a cylinder with a piston. Inside it is a spring and a special brake fluid, which is compressed by pressure. In fact, this is a hydraulic mechanism.
Where is the double-sided
There is such a kind of bicycle ride, which is called cross-country. This style of riding has won the hearts of many bicyclists. In it basically there is a rugged terrain, mud, snags and pits. Such an extreme way of driving should include the maximum level of protection for both the athlete and the vehicle itself. That's why for this style of riding is chosen two-suspension bicycle. It is he who is most suitable for the requirements that are put forward by cyclists.
Positive aspects of fulov
The two-suspension bike has clearly some advantages over the rest of its counterparts. First, he has a much higher passability than the hardtail. As a result, you can safely cut through the forest paths, our "killed" roads and many other places. His suspension helps keep both the cyclist and the transport itself in perfect order.
A very important indicator when driving is grip on the surface. Due to the fact that the mountain two-hanging bicycle is endowed with a good suspension, all the obstacles that the wheels meet on their way, as it were enveloped. Because of this, the grip on the road surface only increases. For this reason, the maneuverability of the bike and the ability to brake are increased. You can and do not say that the two-podves put strong and wide tires, often with aggressive protector, which also increase the grip.
Another good plus is the lack of vibration. Well, absence is loudly said. Most likely, all the same, mitigation of vibration. Many irregularities and defects of the road surface thanks to good shock absorbers can be hidden, but still it does not guarantee a complete absence of shaking while driving.
Negative sides of two-pendants
No matter how strange it may sound, but the fuls have many shortcomings that confuse some cyclists. A bicycle of this class is worth buying only when a person is really going to ride on rough terrain, mountain descents and forest paths with a lot of bumps and holes.
The usual two-pendants, which are not designed for any sporting events, have a huge mass. Their weight can reach up to twenty kilograms. On such a bike it will be very difficult to develop a high speed or climb a hill, but the hardtail will cope with this very easily. But on the bumps not so much shakes.
When driving on a flat road, a person in the saddle constantly shakes. This is due to the fact that when the pedals are turned, at this moment, fluctuations are made. It is their suspension and wants to muffle. This starts a person to swing up and down a little. Feelings like walking in a deep hole with dirt. Of course, you can get used to this. By the way, on these swings a certain amount of energy goes. So the fatigue and pain in the legs will remind you very soon.
Two-hanging bicycle: the price decides everything
It is impossible not to write about the price of a two-suspension bike. Many newcomers, having learned about two-pendants, immediately want this. But first you need to think everything over. In the market and in the shops there are pseudofules, which only "mow" under a real bike. In fact, they have one hundred percent psevdovilki. What it is? This is when they seem to be, and maybe even amortize something, but the sensations are completely different. Benefits from this as from a goat's milk. Usually such bicycles cost one hundred or two hundred dollars. The bikes of this price category are the most terrible equipment, and especially the mechanics. They can be compared to the legendary Ashangbai, who won fame as the most terrible bicycles. Many components of cheap two-pendants will be made, of course, in China, which means that the quality leaves much to be desired. In addition, the weight of such a bike will reach about twenty kilograms. Who needs this at all?
Since the price question when choosing something is very important, we can say at once: really worthy bikes with two pendants will go from one thousand US dollars. In class they will still be considered amateur. If you need a good professional bike, then you need to spread more than one thousand green bills for such pleasure. Therefore, before buying a two-pendant it is worthwhile to think carefully, but is it worth buying it at all.
Foldable two-sided bicycle: is it possible
Designers have already reached up to two podvesvesov. Trying to please prospective buyers, bicycle companies somehow created a folding full, which immediately interested cyclists. What is this vehicle, and what are its capabilities?
Such folds produce a lot of companies. One of the famous - Land Rover, Hummer and Onibike. Also you need to pay attention to the price of this product. On average, such bicycles can cost about twenty thousand rubles. Everything depends on the components and build quality.
Pros and Cons of a Foldable Two-Hanging Bike
This bike differs from conventional folding only in that it has a rear and front suspension. Plus it is that in the folded state it takes up very little space. If there is nowhere to put your bike in the apartment, the collapsible will be a real find. Due to this property, it is often taken with them by many traveling people. He folded it and threw it into the trunk. It also easily fits in a bag in which it can be taken with you to the subway or train.
Well, let's start about the bad. Do not forget that the weight does not go anywhere. He weighed twenty kilograms, and he will weigh as much. Because of the fact that there is a folding mechanism that connects the two halves of the frame, the reliability of such a bicycle deteriorates several times. This bike will lose all the qualities of this two-pendant - endurance, unpretentiousness and reliability of the design. On such a bike you can not jump from the hills and bumps. It turns into a simple fold, not designed for cross-country. It makes sense to buy it only when saving space.
A bit about "Stealth"
The two-hanging bike Stels is a favorite subject for bicyclists. "Stealth" is a Russian bicycle manufacturing company. A separate topic is two-pendants. Often reviews about these models are unsatisfactory, and sometimes sharply negative. Apparently, their designers have not yet learned to produce high-quality equipment.
A separate model "Stealth Navigator" (the most expensive) deserves attention from buyers. According to numerous reviews, this is quite a good technique, which really can compete with the rest.
Travel on a double-suspension
If we talk about long cycling, then the full here obviously loses. It's all about his enormous weight. Before you go camping, you need to install the trunk on a two-pendant bicycle, wings, a flashlight. All this is overweight. Such a bicycle will really weigh a lot, so traveling on it with comfort will be very difficult.
