Welcome to the Frugal Average Bicyclist!
The internet is full of sites with competitive cyclists talking about all the most expensive new gear, not here. This is a place for the low budget rider who loves to ride but will probably never be a pro level rider. This is a place for the riders who do not have a lot to spend or are not allowed to spend too much on cycling and remain married. All bike types are welcome: road bikes, mountain bikes, recumbent bikes, comfort bikes, hybrid bikes, unicycles…. The goal here is to help you keep cycling on a budget, and we will be throwing in a bit of humor too.

It’sContinue reading “1981 Schwinn Super Le Tour Summercloud White”

Rear derailleur is a Shimano Deore and the front is Acera. For suspensionContinue reading “2005 Trek 4500 Mountain Bike”
As somebody with a few bikes I’m always looking for a new way to save on some space. I’ve been looking at vertical bike stands for a while and finally decided to check one out. I went with the ZUKVYE on Amazon just because they all seem to look the same and this one wasContinue reading “ZUKVYE Vertical Bike Stand Rack Review”
A great quote from Albert Einstein: “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” And since he has that famous formula of his, I would like to add my own: Bicycle + Riding = Happy Life
