How Does the Auto Shift system
The derailleur changes gears automatically. As the wheel turns and
begins to speed up, the two weights on the derailleur spin faster
moving the chain to a higher gear. As you slow down or brake, the
wheel slows down and the derailleur weights slow down moving the chain
to a lower gear.
What is the AutoMax High Low Function and how does it work?
The AutoMax High/Low Function is like a high/low option on a Sport
Utility Vehicle (SUV). It gives you 7 high and 7 low gears. There
are two gear sprockets on the front crank where the pedals are and
a high/low shifter on the left hand grip of the handlebar.
Does the Land Rider arrive fully assembled?
The Land Rider comes 95% assembled! Once you've removed the packing
material, you can assemble your Land Rider in less than 15 minutes
using the enclosed multi-tool! Simply insert the seat and handlebars
into the frame, screw on the pedals, attach the front wheel and you
are ready to ride!
How do I know what size frame to order?
The correct frame size is determined by your inseam measurement. If
you don't know you're inseam, an easy way to determine the length
is to measure the inside leg seam of a full-length pair of pants from
the crotch seam to the bottom of the hem.
How many gears are really necessary?
The general perception is that 21 gears are better than 10 or 15 -
and now you can even find bikes with 24 or 28 speeds! The fact is
that many of these gears are duplicates. A typical 21 speed bike has
7 gears in the back and 3 in the front to give you 21 in all. The
problem is that when you change gears in the front you will usually
be in the wrong gear in the back - it's why people are usually riding
in the wrong gear. It's confusing. With AutoShift and AutoMax, you'll
have 7 high and 7 low gears. A simple twist of the left hand will
allow you to select High or Low and AutoShift does the rest! You'll
always be in the right gear!
How does Land Rider comparing performance to a 21 speed bike?
Many customers think it's faster because you aren't wasting time shifting.
Since AutoShift is always in the correct gear, your pedaling cadence
is maximized. In addition, when you stop or slow down, AutoShift automatically
comes back to first gear. With a 21 speed, you'll have to manually
shift down and you may not be in the proper gear when you start again
or speed up.
Where can I ride my Land Rider?
While Land Rider is not a mountain bike meant for aggressive off-road
biking, it performs very well on trails. It comes equipped with 2-inch
wide all-terrain tires that have a center ridge for low friction road
travel and side tread for off-road trails.
Why is the Land Rider Safer to ride?
Since you are not constantly focusing on finding the proper gear,
you'll be able to concentrate on the road and enjoy the experience.
With hands-free shifting, you can keep both hands on the handlebar
at all times and use the brakes faster. Also, Land Rider's unique
upright frame design keeps you looking straight ahead and not down
at the ground.
Does the Land Rider come in different sizes?
The Land Rider frame is designed to fit most people. If you are between
4'10" to 6'5" you will have no problem.
