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've only ridden around on this bike a few times, but I already think it's great. I guess I'm not used to a bike feeling "cushy" but that's how this bike feels. It's very comfortable to ride and everything seems to fit me very well. I couldn't really get the front fender on correctly so I just left it off. Everything is quite sturdy. The gear changers are a little different that bikes than I'm used to. There are a few clicks on the handle knob between each gear so that the derailler moves slightly with each click. I guess that is so that you can find just the right spot. I highly recommend this bike. It rides like a much more expensive bike than it is.

Really great bicycle for an amatuer bicyclist for the price I paid. It is really fun to ride. I am enjoying and getting exercise at the same time.

The bike came quickly and on time. It came damage free and was well packaged. Assembly was minor and all that was needed was an Allen Wrench. Now to the bike. The picture doesn't do it justice, it is really a nice looking bike. The cover for the front sprockets is chromed, which gives it a nice look. A very light bike. I didn't have to have the derailures tuned at all, they worked very well right out of the box, which is a surprise. If you are looking for some hard core riding, then this is not the bike for you. If you are just looking to do some cruising around town, then this is just the right bike for you. I enjoy riding it, I was a little sceptical at first since I like to get bloody and muddy on my other bike, but this is good to just relax and cruise on. Highly recommended.

Wife & I are 60'ish, haven't ridden bikes in years but wanted to get back into it for casual exercise on flat terrain. We really enjoy these Jeep Overlands...May not be a purists idea of a bike, but suits our needs well.

Quality is better than I expected with a nice fit...Only exception was the saddle - we needed w-i-d-e-r and softer, so had them replaced. They hang off the back of the motorhome and get used wherever we camp....Light enough for one person to lift. If I was to buy new bikes today, I'd order just what we did originally.

If you are looking to commute to work, cruise around town, around the park, or work up to a 15-30 mile ride, this is the bike for you. For 100 mile races, or extreme mountain trails, you might want to invest a little more money and get something tougher and lighter. But for an old guy like me, who hasn't ridden in 20 years, this "comfort" hybrid is just the ticket! I think it is good quality for the dollars spent. I would recommend it to all my "over the hill - needing to get back in shape" friends.

I bought this based on the pictures of a Overland S Jeep bike. I was expecting a shock on the seat post and adjustable handlebars (the entire reason for me buying a "compfort bike" this bike arrived with neither. This review is based on a $200 bike. The handgrips are small/awkward. Frame is a good size. The seat and ride is VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. I will need to buy the seat post I thought it had and will need to change out the seat. It will not go into 1st gear, but Bike Aid gave me some tips to adjust it. I did not get any clarifiaction from Bike Aid on why bike is not what the Overland S bike is picture on other photos on this site. Even the parts guy looked it up and said it shows seat post shock and adjustable handlebars. For the money you are better off going to Target and bying a Schwinn off the shelf assembled. It will have better quality and features than this bike. Basically it is a Huffy bike with Jeep stickers all over it. It does pedal easy and the frame sits high, but you still are slumped over because the handlebars do not adjust (I am 6'0").

I wanted to get back into riding. The bike I had needed to be tuned up. After pricing those tune-up costs, I started to looked around to see what was available. I came across the Jeep Overland. It's so hard to believe the value you get for your money. It rides soooo smoothly and the shifting is something my older bike never gave me. I have ridden some other high end bikes and I saw very little difference in performance between them and the Jeep Overland, but major difference between the Jeep and your low end 10 speeds. The only problem I found (being I am short) this bike sits a little higher than my other 26", keep that in mind if you are short. But this bike is well worth your money!
