With extensive riding, you ordinary bicycle can become slow or carry multiple scratches and scuff. But as it has become your trustworthy friend, you do not wish to part away with it or buy a new one. You can do one thing perfectly and, i.e., revamp it.
Your old bicycle will look brand new in no time with just a little effort. Here are some ways to do so.
When did you last replace the tires of your bicycle? Perhaps, you don’t even remember. A road bike becomes a flat center and shows small cuts after several months of use. The rubber of your tires get harder over time, and nothing brings much life back into it unless you get them replaced with a fresh set, especially if you are upgrading it for a cause.
If your road bike allows sufficient room for wide tires, get one for your bicycle and experience a smoother and controlled ride.
If you wish to take longer rides on your bicycles but couldn’t do it, you need some power boost. Covert your old bicycle to an e-bike with a conversion kit electric bike. It will just take a few hours of DIY work (if you are knowledgeable enough about bikes). If not, you can always seek the help of a professional. It is the most reasonable and easiest way to convert your ordinary bike into an e-bike. Now you can enjoy longer, steeper and higher rides than before.
If you have got bored with the old color of your bike frame, it is time to change it. You will just need a spray paint and a few hours of your precious time. First of all, strip off the original paint by cleaning and sanding it. Remove all components before you apply spray. Use masking tape on the area you don't want to apply paint. Apart from monochrome options, there is ample scope for showing your creativity. Try double color combination to get a decorative look. You can also use masking tape to make a pattern and then spray over the top of a second color.
There are even spray paint, especially for bikes. You can spray them into different colors and finishes, lie transparent finishes, etc. You can also use spray paint to hide dents and scratches.
After all, these revamp options, hope your old bike will feel brand new. Share your experience with us.
