It can seem very hard to find a new bike when you have so many choices. Even for those people who are paid to ride, buying a new bike is hard. All the varieties and options make it really hard to buy a new bike. You need to think about safety, comfort, what the bike will be used for, how often the bicycle will be used, where the bicycle will be used and, if we’re being honest: style. Trying to keep yourself informed of all the new choices, as well those just about to be released, can make it really hard to finally choose the bike for you. Take the easy road, and use the tests we suggest to choose your new ride.

If you are new to the bike buying business, you will see that the price can be anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. That doesn't mean all bicycles are going to cost that much, so don't worry; there is no reason why you can't find a great bicycle that is in your price range. You can go to auctions and find some of the best bikes available for a fraction of the price of new ones.
For road bikes take away 9 inches from the total of your inseam. The size of the tires a road bike uses are the reason for this. Road bikes are meant for city cycling—the tires are thinner and work best on concrete paving. If you are looking for a mountain bike, you will want to subtract about a foot (twelve inches) from your inseam measurement. Again this is to account for the type of tires you will be using. You will find them to be much bigger and designed to handle rocky terrain. You can use mountain bikes for city cycling, but the opposite is not true and they are nowhere near as good on city streets as road bikes.

You blog may simply be looking for the bike least likely to malfunction because you rely on it to get around. Price can also really affect your decisions. Research bikes before you decide which you want, then shop around before purchasing. Do some research and steer clear of buying the first bike you come across.
