The Bicycle

  • RISD Gym Providence

Enjoy presentations by members of the RISD Cycling team on different types of bikes: including race, fixed gear, single speed, commuter, and mountain bikes. The team will discuss different types of materials used for building a bike (metal, aluminum, and carbon fiber) and the advantages and disadvantages of each material. Proper bike maintenance (how to clean, lube, assemble, change a flat) and other equipment questions (what to wear? how to look pro?) will also be discussed and displayed.
