Park Tool School Offers Inner Marching Hub Travel

The Park Tool School, pioneering institution in the training, training and qualification of bicycle mechanics, offers a course that will clarify all doubts about the maintenance of the internal gear hub. As a result of the partnership with Shimano, the course of the School teaches-in theory and in practice-amateurs and professionals to perform simple and correct maintenance on the Shimano Nexus, with all its peculiarities.

The next class of the course will be on April 1 at the Park Tool School unit in São Paulo, São Paulo. In all, there will be 7 hours of specific content on the subject. To know more,click here.

“The content of the course is complete. As he is apart in the school grille, anyone-amateur or professional mechanic – can do it. Even so, we recommend that the interested party has at least the diploma of the Advanced module. This facilitates understanding and learning”, analyzes Caíque Pereira Alves, instructor and evaluator of the Park Tool School in Brazil.

How it works: In practice, handling the Shimano Nexus inner gear hub is a simple task if you follow the manufacturer’s manual. With it, there is no need to carry spare parts during the pedal, as well as facilitate the work of the bike owner during possible maintenance required. All this without talking about durability. An inner gear hub can handle about 5,000 km and must be changed in approximately 2 years. Another strong point is resistance. It preserves other parts of the bike as the chain lubrication and requires low maintenance.

However, “learn by doing” is not as effective as the qualification of the pioneering institution for training bicycle mechanics and that it provides a world-class certification for its students. Then enter the differential of the Park Tool School.

Independence of the amateur

“The amateur will learn to differentiate the systems from each inner gear hub and how to use them. A cyclist, for example: if he is away on the road without access to a trained mechanic, the owner of the bike can. Also, with the knowledge that we get through, it will understand the maintenance time of the cube. In this way, the amateur preserves the piece more and will not condemn it in the first problem, “said Caíque Alves.

Difference in professional work

Stirring in the inner gear hub is not a big challenge, but many still break their heads.Therefore, having this type of qualification is a great benefit.

“For example, the amateur can not identify the problem in his inner gear hub. If he finds a mechanic who dominates the subject and already presents the solution, the ciclsta starts to trust the mechanic’s work. It’s a differential, “concluded the instructor.

Learn How to Avoid Injuries Caused by Incorrect Cycling Practice

More common problems are tendinitis in the knees and disc hernias

More than adrenaline and speed, cycling can allow a unique sensation of freedom for those who practice. Considered the seventh healthiest sport by Forbes magazine in 2010, the modality provides cardiopulmonary resilience, strength and muscular endurance, flexibility, and caloric expenditure, but can be allied with bodily injury if it is performed improperly, excessive or serious falls occur . Among the occurrences are plantar fasciitis, penile paresthesia, muscle injuries and low back pain-which if left untreated can progress to a herniated disc.

Physical therapist Giuliano Martins, regional director of the Brazilian Association of Column Rehabilitation (ABRC), explains how this happens:

Back pain is due to the cyclist’s poorly adjusted position on the bike. The muscles that may be affected are the buttocks, piriformis, paravertebral hamstrings, multifidus, and the lumbar quad. The latter is located between the first lumbar vertebra and goes to the second sacral vertebra, known as L1 and S2. That is why choosing and properly regulating the equipment is important to avoid back pain, and in the future, herniation.

Martins explains that another common knee problem is tendinitis.

The movement of pedaling is done mainly by the quadriceps more specifically by the vastus medial. A pedaling with wrong technique or pedaling with a lot of overload (rises, pedals locked) will overload this musculature and can cause injuries. It is important to choose the correct frame size for each person size and observe the adjustments and adjustments for the body. Another advice is to avoid pedaling on very heavy marches so as not to overload the knees and perform warm-ups before and stretching after the exercises – clarifies.

In the risk group, the sedentary should take extra care when it comes to sports.

“These people have a great weakness in their muscles. These muscles are responsible for keeping the spine stabilized and the posture on the bike is a determining factor in the onset of cervical and lumbar injuries, so strengthened muscles are essential – Martins points out.

According to the specialist, in cases of herniated disc, it is recommended to treat the patient with physical therapy and the RMA (Reconstruction Articular Muscle of the Spine), which also includes the tables of traction and flexo-decompression.

The tip for preventing any damage, in addition to strengthening, is always to stretch before and after exercise, do sit-ups, adequate rest and, of course, know your own limit-complete.

Know other injuries and how to avoid them:

Muscle Injuries

They occur mainly in the triceps sural and in the quadriceps, usually by overuse (overuse). Stretch daily after exercise.

Try to practice bodybuilding to promote the strengthening of muscle groups involved in cycling.

Rest after very hard workouts and competitions. Rest should be part of your training.

Penile Paresthesia

It is the numbness and lack of sensitivity in the region between the legs, which is supported on the saddle of the bicycle. In women, the paresthesia of the big lips occurs.The nerve, when subjected to a compression for a long period of time, has a smaller signal of nerve impulse, which leads to the loss of temporary sensitivity. There are no reports of power loss due to cycling. Everyone should know the time limit that can be seated on the vehicle. For beginners, only 20 minutes can generate annoyances.

Wear cycling shorts with the liner made of a high-density foam, even in indoor cycling classes.

Try to get a saddle seat in the center that helps relieve the pressure in that area.

Plantar Fasciitis

It is the burning sensation in the sole of the foot, pain in the back of the sole when touching the ground. Usually the worst pain moment happens during the first few steps in the morning or during the beginning of the race. Among the predisposing factors are the lack of stretching and warming, more common in foot caves, obesity, excessive pronation and supination and advanced age.

Try to wear your own cycling shoes.
