All the gadgets you can think of can be thrown into it, and the position at the back of the seat cushion will not hinder riding.
If you like long distance, you can also choose some larger tail bags.
Pedal riding is just repeated pedaling, so a good pair of shoes is very important.
Similarly, a good pedal is also very important.
For many beginner riders, it may take some time to lock the shoes and pedal, and at this time, everyone still uses ordinary pedals.
But even ordinary pedals are good or bad.
Is the contact area large enough? How strong is it? How is the lubricity? These are very important.

▲ when purchasing, you should choose helmets 07 and gloves that are affixed with “commodity inspection mark” and meet the head type.
