Read our comprehensive guide to picking the right bike for you, learning all the lingo, basic maintenance, and more!
Time to get out and see the world from two wheels? If you’re shopping for a new bike and are wondering where to start, here’s what to think about on your bike journey:
Match where you want to ride with the right type of bike.
Learn how to get a bike that fits you.
Set aside some budget for a few must-haves.
Best for: biking around town, riding to work or school, casual weekend rides, and blissfully leaving your bus pass or car at home.
Best for: Bike touring trips, bike camping getaways, taking a year off to ride to Patagonia. They also make a solid commuter bike.
Once you’ve got the style of bike narrowed down, it’s time to consider sizing. Most bike frames come in various sizes. On the correct bike frame size, you should be able to reach almost full leg extension while pedalling and comfortably reach the handlebars with a back angle that suits your riding style. Sometimes you will be between two sizes of bicycle, and thats where our experienced staff can help you make a choice based on your use of the bike. All of our bike sales include a standard fitting to suit most riders, but if getting comfortable on a bike is harder for you, we can focus in on the smaller details like crank length, cleat positioning, seat angles and pedalling geometry.
