How much does a Diamondback women's vital 2 bike weigh?


The weight for that bike is listed as 31.6 pounds according to the following website:

http://www.buzzillions.com/reviews/women-diamondback-vital-2-lx-reviews

Look under the SPECS tabs at the bottom of the list.

I'm not sure if that weight was for the Small (15") size frame or the Medium (17") but they will both be very similar anyway.

Hope this helps.

Could a hardtail be used for touring, would it be able to carry reanonably heavy loads?


There is no reason to doubt the physycal load-bearing capacity of a bike that isn't built stupid-light to begin with. Your wheels should be strong enough for the added weight. Get some good road-worthy tires but keep the size large enough for rim protection.

You won't like how it feels if you stand and pedal but it can be done. I've toured on full suspension. I find a mountain bike set up for the road frees my eyes for scenery instead of scanning the pavement for pebbles and cracks.

Get a Blackburn or comparable rear rack and slap some panniers and a rack-pack on it. I'd also consider adding bar-ends for variety in your hand positions as the miles pile up. I even add an aero bar for the long descents of mountainous areas.

If you can find a front pannier or rack system that will work with your fork you might opt for that instead or in addition to the rear rack. Your weight distribution should not all be on the rear. I find front panniers slow the steering down in a pleasant way, making rider input smoother and resisting sudden swerves that can make you loose front traction.

Added weight is not the drag on the actual riding experience that it is on paper. Once you're in motion you tend to keep it, so it pays to rider smarter and plan for red lights by timing your arrival for the green so you don't have to invest all that energy into accelerating again. Tandem riders catch onto this in time for the same reasons. Loaded downhills are a thrill.

Test ride the loaded rig before your trip. Do some long hills just so you know how to adjust your effort. Have fun.

My friend just bought a custom bicycles.How do I know if I need a custom bike?


Anybody can benefit from a custom bike. Not only does a custom bike fit you to a "T," it will also be built of materials which reflect your body and riding style. Most non-custom bikes are built to suit the "typical" customer, which probably isn't you. For women, this usually means "non-custom" bikes (any bike you purchase off the floor from a bike shop) are usually overbuilt, that is, they are too heavy and use huge diameter tubing which makes them too stiff. Because a big bike manufacturer doesn't know if you weigh 100 pounds or 300 pounds, they tend to build your bike for the 300 pounder. Why should you be carrying around all that extra frame weight?

Another thing to consider in determining whether you need a custom bike is your level of satisfaction with your current or past bikes. If you find yourself always wishing for a little more comfort, constantly "tweaking" the bike so that it fits better, or experience pain which goes beyond an initial "getting in cycling shape" period, you should consider a custom frame.

How well do Specialized Tricross bicycles compare to Touring bikes? The goal is trans-continental tour. Bikes I'm looking at are the Trek 520, Surly Long Haul Trucker, and comparable in price Specialized...


A comment regarding the Specialized. Wheel base is a little short. May or may not have heel clearance for your rear panniers. Gearing is not quite low enough for my taste. I would exchange the 12-27 cassette for at least an 11-32. You will be hauling at least 45 to 50 pounds of racks, panniers, and gear. Plus 28-30 pounds for the bike and your 170 pounds. Grand total of upwards of 250 pounds. Plus water. All being propelled by your legs, lungs, and heart.
As far as training, hit the weights. Can't emphasis enough the importance of strength when you are riding day after day. If you are carrying any extra weight, do your best to be as lean as possible. Any and all extra weight will conspire to sap strength from you and contribute to fatigue.
I rode from Seattle to San Francisco. 3 weeks covering 1000 miles supported. Bike was about 7 pounds too heavy and I was about 25 pounds too heavy despite losing weight prior to my trip. I was very fatigued by the end of the trip. Your trip will be twice as long carrying more gear. Are you using an Adventure Cycle mapped route?
Also something to consider. Use a lighter weight bicycle and carry your gear in a B.O.B. trailer. Trailer carries the bulk of the weight, so you can use a lighter bicycle. No need for a heavy front tire and rim.
Good Luck

Bicycles !? why do people say full suspension bikes always fall apart? is it true?


Cheapie FS bikes are ****.ola. Heavy as hell, which means everytime you take a hit with it, the weight of the bike beats itself up. The cheapie bike is cheap because they are built with cheap parts that are weak and that look shiny; this sucks in the uneducated buyer who wants a 'mountain bike'. This kind of buyer thinks 'mountain' means 'beat the hell out of it' and ride with no technique and it will never break.

A decent FS bike starts at around $1500. For that money your get decent shocks, but not the top end stuff. You'll also get less quality in the wheels and other parts to keep the bike at the 1500 mark.

For the same 1500, you can get a real nice hardtail. You do not have any of the maintenance of a rear suspension, nor the weight. You'll get a nice set of wheels and a real decent crankset and nicer fork. I also prefer hardtails over FS where I live (MN). If I was a downhill freak living in the mountains , then I'd start looking at a FS bike.

Why is lighter bike better for kids?


After design & efficiency, the next most important aspect is weight. This applies to all bikes and in kid's bikes we have found most bikes on the market are over-weight! The average adult bike weighs approximately 15kgs with the expected rider to weigh between 60-90 kg. By comparison, the average children's bike weighs 13kgs for a child weighing around 20kgs.
