How to Commute and Have Fun?

There is a problem in transportation problem called the last mile problem. When the last mile problem is used around transport, it has to do with how do people get the final mile from a bus or train station to work. The obvious answer for us cyclists is a bike.

The bike trade is also keen on this, so there are a plethora of solutions for urban riding. You can get a folding bike. You could get a hybrid. The problem with these solutions is that they are sometimes a bit subdued. They are too utilitarian, they seem to have had their soul sucked out and the fun of cycling removed.

We felt this could be rectified. We want you to ride to work and feel so exhilarated from your ride that the rest of the day melts away on the high you’re feeling. We want you to fly through traffic. To feel the wind rush through your hair. Your bike to make you smile from ear to ear, we want cycling to make you remember what it feels like to be a child again.

The problem is how do you know what size of tires you need? What tires will fit the rims that you ride? What exactly is the size of my tires? Tires have a lot of sizing information written on their sides and knowing what it means can be elusive. We’ve thought about this and decided to create you a handy guide for tire sizing.

How to Get a Weight Weenie Build Without Breaking the Bank?

Weight weenies was originally a pejorative term for people who got too obsessed by the weight of their bike. They were considered to spend more time worrying about the weight of their bike rather than riding their bike. They would pay thousands of dollars to get a bike a few grams lighter, even if it sacrificed comfort.

The weight weenie for many cyclists was a person with more money than sense. Though now by using the weight weenies forum you’ll find that people who care about the weight of their bike have been retaking the term. Many though still spend way more money than they should in order to have a light bike.

How to choose ICAN wheels according to your budget?

As our frequent customers know, ICAN has launched several series of wheelset with different price; you can choose the wheels according to your requirements. The first series is the Standard Wheelset assembled with the J-bend hubs and aero blade spokes. Although we call it as Standard Wheelset, the hubs and spokes are both made by Taiwan. Then it is our mainstay product line in 2018, that is, the Fast and light series (FL).

In 2019, we make some improvement of the FL series, we upgrade the barking track and the hubset, now wheelset will become stiffer. Moreover, we launch new wheels—AERO series. We now have a wheelset that has all the FL series qualities (strength, stiffness, and aero) but for around 100g less per wheelset. Besides, some customers would prefer installing the wheelset with better hubset with well-known brands, good quality and high performance, to meet the requirements of this, we then laced the DT hubs to our AERO rims with Sapim CX-Ray spokes.

I ride ICAN - Win, win, score!———Review by John Pink ②

When I got my first set of ICAN wheels, I was as skeptical as so many others at a brand name I had not heard of. I did not know anyone that had ridden them, could not ask anyone, and this would be a set of wheels that I would have to pay for out of my pocket, not one I could borrow from the shop. My plan was to ride them really hard up all the mountains here in Southern California and in my travels with the simple goal of riding them to failure – to have them break and make a video about it.
