I was reading an article on MSN about “20 ways you waste money on your car.” The listed off some of the obvious such as permium gas, 3,000 mile oil changes, not knowing how to change a flat tire or wiper blades or etc. You can read more HERE.
With that in mind, I wanted to see what you folks think are ways of wasting money for your bikes? I have a few that I thought of, but not quite 20:
Color coordinating cycling clothing and gear. If you’re into that, check out Biker Fox!
Bike Repairs-Most of this stuff you can do yourself
Low Tire Pressure=Worn out Tires=Buying new Tires$$$
Cheap Bike Locks. Its ok to spend the sweet mula on a good bike lock, if you get a cheapo, you know you’ll be spending more $$ on a new bike once your old one gets stolen.
XTR or Higher End components-Nothing wrong with a bit of bling for parts, but not when you’re commuting. Get what works!
Don’t be shy to comment on other ways to waste money on your bike!
