Make Picking The Right Bicycle Easier

We have seen a change in transportation recently. More and more people are leaving the car behind in favor of the bicycle, in the west the car reigned supreme but we are now seeing a growth in popularity of the bike. Perhaps this because the last couple of decades have seen a major shift in the popularity of “living green.” Maybe it is because the cost of gas is just too high. Either way there are now more bikes on the road then ever before. Perhaps you have been giving some thought to getting a bike yourself? If you have then there are several things you should look at when you do.

Fashion really does get involved when you make a choice. We all like one color or style more than another. When choosing your bike you shouldn't ignore them. Looking good will be a great benefit of getting your new bike, but don’t let fashion choices be the guiding decisions factors. Safety and comfort should be considered first. But once you have found the safest and most comfortable bicycles, there is no reason you shouldn’t narrow down your choice further by how the bike appeals to you visually.

Always keep in mind that you want to test the bike before you buy it. Don't just jump on and jump off though, take a nice little ride for at least a few minutes. Think about it: would you buy a car without taking it for a test drive?

Why wouldn’t you do the same with a bicycle? This is especially important if you are going to be spending large sums of money for a bicycle that you are going to be riding a lot. Choose the bicycle that you know will fit you can try here you. Physical fit is easy to determine, but you also need to find a bike that “fits” your riding style. You wouldn't want to waste money on a bicycle you don't enjoy riding.

Just exactly how many gears do you think you’ll use? Make your choice by knowing that if you ride in mountainous areas you’ll need more gears than when riding in a flat area. A bike isn’t better just because it has more gears than another. In actuality, you may never use all the gears. Why spend extra money paying for something that you don’t need? If your bike is going to be the main means of travel for you, you absolutely must get the number of gears you need for the situations in which you’ll ride.

How well you fit physically with your bike is what is most important. This is the most important thing to consider when looking into using a bike to get around. Comfort and saftey are the two most important aspects of riding a bike.
