Salita.Discesa. Perche' non entrambe ? Il solo pensiero della vista mozzafiato dalla cima della montagna e della successiva discesa a valle basta a farti battere forte il cuore ? Allora la Macina Kapoho con i suoi 160 mm di escursione e' la bici di cui hai bisogno
A product's Brand is an identifying mark that defines the manufacturer of that particular product.
The Model Year value corresponds the reference year when a specific product has been put on sale on the market. Note that bicycle manufacturers use to present the models that you will find on sale in the next year in the period July-December ot the current year. You will also hear speaking about "Catalogs" and this is pretty much the same as "Model Year". This expression comes from the past, when pretty much every manufacturer was printing paper catalogs where they used to collect all the available bicycle models for a specific year. So, in the current language you will still hear speaking about "Bike XYZ from the Catalog 2021", as well as "Bike XYZ Model Year 2021".
Bicycles can be categorized in infinite ways. Every online shop and Brand's website uses a different categorization. At EurekaBike we have been monitoring the bicycles' and eBikes' market for years and, after an in-depth study, we decided to create e category system which is the most rational possible, and that we would like to propose as a reference for the sector. Probably that is not the best for everyone's needs, but the familiarity everyone has with Categories is also a matter of habits. Through EurekaBike category system we are able to collect tenths of thousands of bicycles in a quick and unique way: each and every bicycle model is associated to one and one only Category and, for this, you will never find overlapping cases. After years of testing, we believe that this system is the best way to collect potentially all the bicycles existing in the World, in a way that everyone, from the more expert to the rookie, will be able to easily find them.
The Women Specific attribute can have only two values: "Yes" or "No". If the value is "Yes" it means that the bicycle is specifically conceived for women. All products tagged as "No", can perfectly be used by women, but they are not specifically designed for them.
Since the first years of 2000, several main bicycle brands pointed more and more attention to products that are designed and produced to match the very demands of the she-riders, and following this trend, even some women-only brands were born.
The Kid Specific attribute can only have two values: "Yes" or "No". If the value is "Yes", it means that the bicycle is specifically designed for children or kids under the age of 14. Since the physiognomy of children and teenagers is very variable, we advise you to consider this parameter as an indication and always to consult your trusted shop to find out if the bicycle you are interested in is right for your child in terms of type and size, for the intended use.
The Frame Material attribute refers to the main material used for the construction of the frame. You can find a few Manufacturers that build frames using more than one material (e.g. Carbon + Aluminium). This solution is often used for building the “triangle” out of one material and the “swing arm” out of another one, and this allows to obtain different handling behaviors and/or to make savings on the production costs. Some bike models, mainly from the past, had one-piece frames built combining two materials. To do this they joined, for example, carbon tubes with aluminum joints, applying aerospace gluing technologies.
The Manufacturer Code is a unique code that defines a particular Model from the side of the producer or brand. Often, this code can be found in manufacturers' catalogs or websites, but due to producers not adopting always the same standards, when the Manufacturer Code is not available, at EurekaBike we give the product an internally created Manufacturer Code based on the defining parameters of the product itself.
The Eureka SKU is a universal product code (UPC) that univocally defines a specific product in the bicycles' market.
Sharing the Eureka SKU of a listing bicycle, for example, means to indicate a very well-defined combination of Brand, Model, Mounting, and Model Year parameters that define a single bike model and no one else. The Eureka SKU of an Ad product, instead, is built from other information that guarantees it is still unique compared to all present, past, and future products managed by EurekaBike.
