PRLog - Jul. 20, 2011 - New York, July 13th 2011 – Twenga, the open shopping platform with the largest selection online, reports a growth in visits for cycling equipment. The popularity of the Tour de France among Americans likely influences interest in purchasing cycling gear at this time of year.

Searches for bicycle saddles have registered a 141% increase over the last several weeks. The choice of a seat depends largely on the morphology of the cyclist and on the intended use of the bike. One thing to remember is that firm seats are generally preferred by professionals and athletes, while gel seats are more adapted for the occasional rider.

Properly equipping oneself with a protective helmet is an essential element for any type of cycler. Bike helmets vary in style and shape depending on the activity. Mountain and road helmets are generally oval while most BMX helmets are round and smooth.
Finally, any skilled cyclist knows that cycling shorts are best adapted for long rides as they are more aerodynamic, comfortable and will not get stuck in the wheels. Classic models are usually made of black spandex, but they can also be found in a wide range of colors. Twenga also carries shoes, jerseys, gloves and other accessories for serious cyclers.
