Time for a New Helmet?

How old is your helmet?
Most cycling helmets utilize expanded polystyrene (EPS), which prevents head injuries by compressing to absorb impacts. Did you know that this ability can degrade over time, and can also be affected by the environment and handling?
It's best to replace your lid every 3-5 years to maximize protection.

Check out our helmet selection - we've got 'em for infants, kids and adults!

Today's Bicycle Tip From Middleton Cycle

Checking Fork Travel - Are you curious how much of your fork's travel you're using? It's good to know because if it's not very much, some fine-tuning could improve the ride. To see how much travel you're using, place a thin zip-tie around one inner leg on your fork. Make sure it's loose enough to not scratch the leg, yet tight enough to not slide down on its own. When you start your ride, push the zip tie all the way down against the seal. At the end of the ride, the amount the zip-tie has moved up indicates the amount of travel you're using.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

cyclo-computer

Also called a "computer" or "brain," this is a small handlebar-mounted device that measures current, average, maximum and top speed. Plus, trip distance, total distance and often other things (depending on the model) such as cadence, temperature, elevation, even heart rate.
