FAQ

Your must first decide what type of bike you are after. There are basically four main styles of bikes to choose from, and your selection should depend on your purpose of riding.

Road Bikes are designed for riding on paved streets and going fast. Featuring skinny tires, a lightweight frame and a riding position that puts you bent over the handlebars, you might choose this type of bike if traveling longer distances at higher speeds is important to you. 

Mountain Bikes have wide tires, usually with knobby treads and a stout frame, and are designed to handle the rugged trails without disintegrating. Mountain bikes do not go as fast as road bikes and have a more comfortable riding position. You sit higher on these bikes, more upright with the straight handlebars, which is often a happier choice for people with back problems than being hunched over as you are on a road bike.

Hybrid or Sport Bikes are compromise between road and mountain bikes and offer the best features of both if most of your riding will be shorter trips on pavements. With skinnier, smooth tires, they typically can go faster than mountain bikes, yet feature the upright seat and handlebar position that many people favor. Hybrids are a good choice for most city riding, and offer speed, durability and comfort. 

City Bikes or Cruisers are bikes that have wide seats, upright handlebars, and they work best with flat terrain and a rider whose main interest is more about being comfortable and cruising than going fast.

E-Bikes, also known as Electric Bikes, are bikes with an integrated electric motor, run by eco friendly batteries, which can be used for propulsion. Mainly preferred by riders with long distances for commuting or riders that like to take a break in pedaling while enjoying their beautiful bike ride.

2. Resist the temptation to go cheap

With bikes, like most everything else, you get what you pay for. Chances are you won’t be happy over the long run with a cheapie bike even if it was a deal. They are not geometracially accurate, they are heavy and the components won’t last like they would in a good quality model. Ultimately, you’ll be frustrated, and end up spending more money trying to fix it and to get that better bike you should have bought in the first place.
