There are a lot of different criteria to consider when you are buying a cycling bicycle. Even for pro bicyclists, deciding on their next bicycle can be a challenge. All the varieties and options make it really hard to buy a new bike. Evaluate the safety, comfort, and use of the future bike. You also need to see how the bike looks, and how frequently you’ll ride and the location of those rides. How can you make a decision when there are so many different choices available, and new options being released every day? It’s easy to just use our criteria to pick the best bike for you.
The basic key to choosing a bicycle is to buy a bicycle that you can sit on and rest your feet flat on the floor so that you can stop yourself. There are those who say that this isn't the best way, though. They state the best way to choose a bike is to leave a few inches between your feet and the ground so you can have a more comfortable ride. If your feet are on the ground and your knees are bent when you sit on the seat of the bike, it generally means that the seat is sitting too low for you and too close to the crossbar. This is because when you are pedaling with this bike, your knees are going to come up too high. You will also need to consider which handlebars you want on your bike. Not all handlebars are the same. Those handlebars which extend horizontally out offer great control for maneuvering. They are good for distributing your weight as you ride over a bigger area. For racing however you will want special handlebars, ones which are thinner and are positioned in such home a way you can lean over them as you cycle. This is to lower wind resistance and will allow you to go faster. For those people who rarely use their bikes you can get away with just selecting comfortable handlebars that can be stored away easily.
Ask yourself the number of gears necessary for your bike. If you plan to ride in rocky or mountainous areas, you’ll need more gears than riding on flat land. Just because a bike has more gears doesn't make it better. Sometimes bike riders don’t ever use all the gears on their bike. Save your money for a different feature you’ll really use. Ensure you have enough gears to handle the situations in which you will be riding, especially if you bike will be your main mode of transport.
How well you fit physically with your bike is what is most important. Selecting a bike with a good fit for you is of the utmost importance, when using a bike as the main way to get from A to B. Comfort and saftey are the two most important aspects of riding a bike.
