Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera

H1 and Cycling?

I'm about to pick up my H1 but i need some input. I'm going to be taking it on many road and mountain bike trips. is there a best method for carrying it? I've been reading that having it attached to the bike itself will beat it senseless, so i'm assuming either in a camel back or in a specifically designed pack. any input or experiences (good/bad) would be appreciated.

Hello don't put your camera anywhere near your bike...bike bag, etc, you will shake it to death. use your body as a shock absorber. i use a lowe alpine bumbag (i think you chaps call it a fanny pack...how rude). anyway fits snugly above your bum, and is quite comfy. not easy quick access though. as you have to take it off to get at the camera. hope this helps.

I just bought a Delta Poste Haste Rack and Quick Bag. I haven't carried my camera in it yet, but I am sure it would be okay. I wanted room for a few tools, lunch, bike lock, etc. It has a main big pouch and two side pouches. I could protective foam in the big pouch and it would hold a camera very safely should you wipe out. A handlebar bag might be easier to grab a camera from for a quick picture.

Looking for replacement light alloy rims. 26" v2100 genesis mountain bike, ultra light rims 21 speed


What rim you need has too many variables (width of tire to be used, your weight, balance of road/off-road usage and roughness of off-road use, budget, etc.) that you have not mentioned for anyone to give an appropriate recommendation.

Secondly, unless the rims are both bent it's a waste of money and effort to replace them, as good quality rims and spokes alone (a new rim may need different length spokes) could cost almost as much as the original cost of the bike ($119), let alone when you add labor.

Finally, worrying about "ultra light" rims, especially on a bike that weighs 35+ lbs, is useless. Shaving off ounces when the bike and rider together could weigh 200 lbs. is not going to make it faster or easier to pedal.

26" Hyper Havoc Full Suspension Men's Mountain Bike is it good ride for around town as well as country terrain


Looks like a nice bike to ride everywhere and as an urban commuter I would love to ride it in traffic instead of using a road bike or commuter type. If you need more speed in town or want to compete, a road bike might be better. A mountain bike will probably last longer than a road bike under all driving conditions.

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.

Can you please provide me a list of all major bike types?


I have listed the most famous bike types: BMX Bicycle

Bicycle Moto Cross (BMX) bicycles are designed for rough off road riding and are typically single speed. People also use them for stunt riding, and you may see some fitted with stunt pegs.

Mountain Bike (MTB)

A mountain bike is designed for trail riding and downhill riding. It can also be ridden on the road. They come in many shapes and forms. Some have no suspension, whilst others have front and rear suspension. A mountain bike without rear suspension is usually called a hard tail bike.

Most MTBs use 26 inch wheels which is the standard. This size wheel is fairly strong, especially when coupled with the large off road tyres that are fitted to MTBs.

An MTB is suited for off road riding and will handle rough terrain quite easy. It is very stable on rough terrain, but is a lot slower to ride on the road when compared to a road bike. It is also suitably geared for climbing hills.

Hybrid Bicycle

Another style of bike that has a similar riding position to a mountain bike, but better road speed is a Hybrid bicycle. Hybrids are a cross between a mountain bike and a road bike. They have an upright comfortable position, road tyres, and are usually a lot lighter than a mountain bike.

Hybrid bicycles are typically used for commuting.

Touring Bicycle

A touring bicycle is designed for loaded cycle touring and has the capability to be fitted with mudguards, racks, panniers and extra water cages. They are typically fitted with wider road type tyres that are suitable for gravel riding also.

They usually come with a stronger frame and longer chainstays so that the back of your feet don't hit the rear panniers. They are usually fitted with a relaxed drop bar style handlebar. The geometry of the frame is also different and allows for much more easier steering and handling when loaded.

Expedition Bicycle

As above for touring, but usually fitted with Trekking bars and MTB gear and is designed for extreme off road conditions.

Randonneur or 'All Rounder'

A rare beast in Australia where we like to specialise. 'Randonneur' is a French term, coined to describe a bike that can do a bit of everything - you can ride with the pack or take a doddle with the kids, you can ride light or carry a load, you'd use it to visit Gran on Sunday then pick up some groceries on the way home. They are the 'family station wagon' of cycling. However, like any Jack of All Trades, they do everything well but the specialists do it better. They can carry a load but not like a heavy tourer. They are fast but heavier than a racer and with more comfortable geometry. They have wider wheels and tyres to ride on rough roads but wont handle true off road work.

Typically, they look like any other racing or flat bar road bike ... until you look at the details. Most randonneurs start life as a touring bike or hybrid, and are then modified by the owner over time to reflect how they are used.

Hi there. Whatâ??s so great about cycling


A specialized shoe will improve your efficiency because they clip onto performance cycling pedals allowing you to pull them up as well as push down. They are not a necessity for the casual cyclist who cycles less than 5 miles, or less than three times a week, but for the performance driven cyclist they are essential.There are two types of cycling shoes -1. Mountain cycling shoes: these shoes have recessed cleats and a flexible sole, thus making them easier to walk in than road cycling shoes. They are a better fit for the casual rider, the commute rider and the mountain biker where you may need to get off your bike to walk or carry your bike over an obstacle.
2. Road cycling shoes: the cleats on these type of shoes are not recessed they are instead attached to the out-sole of the shoe, they are also much stiffer than mountain shoes making them harder to walk in. These road shoes are for cyclists who strive for performance.

You are in the wrong area of FixYa, but I can make some suggestions.
It depends upon what type of bike riding you want to do.
If you want to ride bikes over rough terrain and cross country then you need a mountain bike.
If you want to ride bikes on roads only then a road bike is what you need.
A mountain bike can be used on road surfaces but a road bike is not suitable on rough terrain.
If you want to bike race, then you need a racing bike, these are very light and expensive.
It is best if you go to a large bike shop and speak to the sales person or go to a bike club and ask questions. This will help you to decide what type of bike will suit you and your needs.

I need to buy a new pump for my bike


I reckon the best pump around today is the Topeak Road Morph. This is a minature track pump with foot pedal and hose with pressure gauge built in to connector. If you have road tyres this pump has to be top of your list.
