In the market for a new bike? There are three main decision points:

1. Types of bikes: The right type of bike for you largely depends on where you plan to ride.

To figure out what type of bike is right for you, your first consideration is to know where you’ll be riding: on the road, dirt trails or both. Some bicycles are made specifically for a particular kind of riding surface, while others are versatile enough that, perhaps with a quick tire change, they can be ridden in more than one category.

  • Road Bikes – best for use on the road or as a commuter bike.
  • Mountain Bikes – best for off-road on gravel or dirt tracks
  • Hybrid Bikes – can be used on the road or off-road
  • BMX Bikes – designed especially for trick riding, the small wheels & frame make for light, easy handling.

2. Bike features and components: Things like suspension, gears and brakes determine how a bike performs.

3. Bike fit: Once you’ve narrowed down your search, it’s important to make sure a bike fits you properly.
