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

Seat Fore-And-Aft Adjustment Is Important, Too - For optimum comfort and pedaling efficiency, your saddle must be properly positioned over the pedals. When your crankarms and pedals are parallel to the ground, a plumb line dropped from the bony protrusion just below your knee should be either directly over, or 1-2 centimeters behind the pedal axle (on the forward crankarm). This setting varies according to personal preference and riding position. For example, if you are a spinner and like to pedal at high cadences (95 rpm plus), place the plumb line directly over the pedal axle. If you pedal at a slower cadence (80 to 90 rpm), you may find that you prefer a rearward position better. This is a tricky thing to determine and adjust without help. If you feel you need advice regarding bike fit, please call us or come in soon.
