Choosing a bike

Choosing a bike – is it easy? 4 step process

If you‘re in the market for a new bike, the options can feel overwhelming. But don‘t worry, we‘re here to help! Here are a few things to consider when choosing a bike:

1. What type of riding will you be doing? If you‘re mostly riding on paved roads, a road bike or hybrid bike might be a good option. If you‘re planning on doing more offroad riding, a mountain bike might be a better fit.

2. What‘s your budget? Bikes can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand. It‘s important to figure out how much you‘re willing to spend before you start shopping.

3. What size bike do you need? Bike sizes are based on the height of the frame. You can usually find this information listed in the bike‘s specs.

4. What other features are important to you? If you‘re looking for a bike with a lot of gears, a road bike or mountain bike might be a good option. If you want a bike that‘s easy to carry, a folding bike might be a good choice.

Once you‘ve considered these factors, you‘ll be able to narrow down your options and choose the perfect bike for you!
