Welcome to the World of bicycles, from here you can choose a type of bike that you are looking for. Some people already know what they are looking for and easily go directly to the category they need. For many people, this can take you places you are not sure about. The type of bicycle you choose is important; First ask yourself what type of riding do you see yourself doing? Where will you be riding? How far do you plan on going? How often would you like to ride? Who will you be riding with?
Riding with your family, enjoying the parks & community trails on a weekend? We would suggest looking at the many Recreational/Hybrid style bikes we have to offer. From here there are many choices from a Sport, Fitness or Comfort. Perhaps one or more in the family also want to ride with a group of people that ride farther and faster than you do with your Sunday ride with the kids. While a Comfort style is great, it might leave you in the back of the pack with your friends, because they ride a bit more aggressively, so look closer at the Recreational-Hybrid/Fitness. They are still comfortable but design you to lean forward while offering the lightest frame to allow you to get more speed. While a Recreational-Hybrid/Sport offers you a light frame, leaning you a bit forward with front suspension, for those more adventurous trails.
Mountain bikes are designed to let you go places most bikes can’t, but they are a heavier frame with larger/wider tires and have a big tread and can be harder to ride when biking on pavement. Figure out what kind of surface you will likely be riding on.
Road bikes are engineered for speed, usually with a style of handlebar that positions your body down low, so there is little wind resistance, look at a speed skater who has their body down and you’ll understand why the handlebar curls and the seat is small. This is great for distance and speed, but you’ll find yourself backtracking a lot if you’re riding with the family on that Sunday ride.
We hope this helps you understand a little bit about all the choices, it remains our goal to help you buy the right bike for you. Please feel free to call us or stop on by, with any questions you may have.
