Finding the Right Bike
To really enjoy cycling, it's important to find a bicycle that works for you. Here are some things to keep in mind when you're in the market for a new bike:

The Right Ride
In general, bikes are broken down into three major categories:

  • Road and Racing Bikes--As a general rule, road and racing are built for speed and longer distances on paved surfaces. Thinner tires, lightweight 29-inch (700c) wheels, and drop bars that allow for a more aerodynamic position are the norm. Most road bikes, regardless of price, offer many gears for tackling both hilly and flat terrain.
  • Mountain Bikes--With their larger tires, hill-friendly gearing, and upright position, mountain bikes are very popular for all types of riding, both on pavement and off. Mountain bikes that are designed specifically for rugged trail use typically feature a suspension fork. Some may have rear suspension, as well. A quick change of the tires on any mountain bike--even one that you use regularly on trails--adds to its versatility and makes it a worthy street machine.
  • Comfort/Cruiser Bikes--For tooling around on bike paths, light trails, or for cruising a quiet beach-side lane, comfort/cruiser bikes are the ticket. With a super-relaxed riding position, padded seats, and limited or no gearing, these bikes are made for enjoying the scenery and having fun with the family.

The Right Price
A bike's price boils down to three essentials: frame materials, bike weight, and component quality and durability.

  • Entry-level--You'll find a wide range of comfort and cruiser bikes in this category, as well as some lower-end mountain bikes and road bikes. Most will have steel frames and components that are designed to last for several years with frequent use.
  • Mid-range--Bikes in this range may feature a lighter aluminum frame with mid-range components that keep performing after miles of use. If you're looking for a quality bike that is relatively lightweight and will stand up to abuse, this is the "sweet spot." Most serious commuter and touring bikes fall into this category, as do mid-range mountain bikes with a decent front suspension.
  • High-end--Racers and serious enthusiasts who expect lightweight, high-performance components will want to stick to this category. For road bikes, exotic frame materials (carbon fiber, titanium) and ultralightweight components can add thousands to the price tag. Mountain bikes in this class often feature advanced front and rear suspension technology, as well as components designed to handle lots of rugged trail action.

The Right Size
Fit is crucial for comfort, control, and proper power and endurance on a bike. Here are some basic bike fit tips:

  • Stand-over Height--To find out if a bike's overall height fits your body, measure your inseam. Next, determine how much clearance you'll need between your crotch and the top tube of the bike. For a mountain bike, you'll want three to five inches of clearance. A road bike should offer between one and two inches of clearance, while a commuter bike should have two to four inches. Compare the stand-over height for a given bike to your measurements (inseam + clearance) to determine the right bike height.
  • Top Tube Length--You can measure your torso to get a good estimate of proper top tube length. First, make a fist and extend your arm. Measure from the center of your fist to the end of your collarbone (the part that intersects your shoulder). Next, measure your torso by placing a book against your crotch with the spine facing up. Measure from the spine to the bottom of your throat (the spot between your collarbones). Finally, add the two measurements (arm length + torso length), divide the number in half, and subtract six inches. This is your approximate top tube length. Compare this number to a bike's posted top tube length. You can allow for about two inches longer or shorter, as most bikes can be adjusted via stem length/height and saddle fore/aft position to make fine adjustments to the fit.
  • Bikes for Women--Proportionally, women tend to have a shorter torso and longer legs than men. Bike makers design women's bikes that offer a shorter top tube and many comfort/cruiser bikes built for women may also provide more stand-over clearance.

The Right Accessories
When you make a bike purchase, don't forget these crucial add-ons:

I ordered a men's bike and it arrived damaged (not just a scratch, but dents, twisted fork, misaligned/bent brakes, etc.) Turtletool's return policy gives only 5 days from receipt to return merchandise, charges shipping and a restock fee, and requires an official document from the company to do a return. After a month of attempts to contact someone via email and phone, I surrender. I just wanted a replacement, but now I'm forced to try to repair it.

First, I did not know this bicycle was made in China at the time of purchase.

I just purchased a Huffy Blackwater 26" mens model and found quite a few problems.
1. This bike is made in China and the Allen head bolts are not machined correctly to accept
the 7/32 allen key to adjust your handle bars. This means you will instantly strip out the Allen socket
while assembling the bicycle, even before you get to ride it!
2. The rear wheel is not true, meaning I can see it wobbling before I took it for a ride.
3. The assembly instruction are generic for all Huffy models. There is no diagram showing how the bicycle should look after assembly. There is no diagram or instruction showing how the handle bars should be mounted or aligned.
4. The gear shift assembly does not work out of the box and it looks like I will be spending some time to adjust this
to get it working properly.

After all is said and done, I should have bought an American made product.

The bike is OK, i mean what do you expect for $120. There was some damage during shipping and it was very difficult to assemble because it did not come with any hexagonal (allen) wrenches, which are needed to attach the handlebars and adjust various other parts. Also, the front wheel spins a little off-kilter, but still rides ok. I only need it for short trips so I doesnt bother me too much. MAKE SURE YOU ADJUST THE BRAKES BEFORE RIDING because the factory does not place them in exactly the right place... If I could go back in time I would probably just save up for another month and buy a better bike from an actual bike shop.

This bike is one of the best I've known, I actually but it in REALLY bad condition (used), but began fixing it as I went. First, the brakes didn't work, they needed retuning. Next, the wheels were rusted, so I replaced the rims. Last, the shifters were frozen, so I had to take them apart and regrease everything. I did all of this and it actually worked fine despite looking horrible... (It was all-black so I'm not gonna complain) Bare in mind also that I'm only 20 years old, rebuilding this bike. After making the necessary repairs, it was the best bike I've ever owned. I've strained my way up hills that would break chains of other bikes, also flew down hills that would warp rims of racing streetbikes, even catching up to 50 miles an hour. So far, it's been knocked around outside, taken plenty of jumps, and even been hit by two cars, (one occasion I was riding it!) But the Bike and I are fine. Anyhow, it's one of the toughest bikes I've ever seen. I'd love to own another. I won't trust any other bike to endure the use I put on my Blackwater!
