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 ultra-lightweight 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:
- Helmet (this is a must!)
- Seat pack
- Hydration pack, or water bottles and bottle cages
- Spare tubes
- Portable bike pump

Top customer reviews
Includes quick-release seat tube clamp, quick-release front wheel, welded bosses for water bottle & rear rack, provisions to mount fenders (fenders not included). Standover height at the point where top tube joins the curved brace to the seat tube: 23.5" with no rider with supplied tires. Weight: Approx 33lbs. The gearing is somewhat low as this bike is advertised as a mountain bike, not a street bike. However, unless you are riding very level ground you probably won't find this to be a problem.
Some notes for newbies:
1. Read the supplied Owner's Manual completely; it's a decent intro to bikes and as good as is supplied with other modern bikes. You can get more info from books, the Internet, or a local bike shop. Try these sites from among many: [...]; [...]
2. Rolling friction (energy losses) is related to total weight of bike and rider, not the bike alone. More weight deforms the tire more where it meets the ground. Smaller dia tires & higher pressure can reduce losses--but there are tradeoffs.
3. Almost all new bikes use metric hardware; you'll need metric wrenches (hex/Allen and adjustable or metric open/box), Philips screwdriver, and pliers to assemble & adjust the bike. Also, cables stretch, brake pads wear, etc.--therefore readjustment is needed from time to time for all bikes. Don't neglect cleanliness and lubrication. A new bike is unlikely to be fully adjusted just after assembly from the box.
4. Most riders will not be able to stand when positioned atop a correctly adjusted seat. Seats should be adjusted in relation to the pedals, not the ground! (See the Internet sites noted for tips on adjusting seats.) When you must stand, slide forward off the seat or completely dismount.
5. Don't forget to record your bike's serial number from the underside of the pedals-cranks assembly.
6. Security: Any bike can be stolen, in pieces if the thief wants it badly enough. A strong lock system is a deterrent, not absolute protection.
Update: Left pedal bearing failed in less than 10 miles. Otherwise, all okay.
- Easy assembly. My partner had the bike put together in less than an hour, which I think is very reasonable.
- Comfortable ride. I mainly ride on city bike trails, residential streets, and sidewalks. The bike rides smoothly in all of those situations. I've also taken the bike to rural areas and ridden on highway shoulders without trouble.
- Easy to modify. There's plenty of room on the handlebars for my headlamp and a bike computer. A water bottle cage also easily fit on the frame.
- Great height for tall women! I'm 5'10" and have long legs, and it can be difficult to find a bike that easily accommodates my long legs. The adjustable seat is great and extremely easy to use, and that helps a lot. The range of the pedals is also very reasonable--not too short like many bikes. This does mean that my foot occasionally hits the front tire, but I think that's happened twice in 2 months--and it's never caused a problem.
- Light weight. It's very easy to pick the bike up and carry it on the rare occasions when that's needed.
- Difficult to remove the front wheel. I've removed the front wheel a few times now, and each time it takes much longer than it should. Disconnecting the brakes can be tricky, and the brakes always need to be re-adjusted when the front wheel is put back on. I've stopped traveling with the bike because it's too much of a hassle to take it apart and put it back together again.
- Leaky valves. The wheels on this bike are your standard factory wheels with plastic valves. Those valves leak, so I have to refill the tires every couple of weeks. It's pretty annoying, but easily fixed.
- Tricky gear shifting. I like that there are many gears, but I can only get three or four to work effectively. When I try the other gears, I get a horrible loud clicking noise and it sounds like the bike is about to fall apart into 20 pieces. I generally don't need to change gears, as I live in a very flat area, but I'll need to take it to a bike shop to have some adjustments made.
- Seat takes some getting used to. Like a foam bed, it takes about a month to break in the seat. It eventually softens up, though.
- Water bottle cage has limited space. Once the cage is installed, you need a pretty skinny water bottle. The bars on the body aren't round, and there's less space for the top of a water bottle as a result. I initially bought a taller 20 oz bottle, but it didn't fit at all. A 16 oz bottle fits better, but it's still a squeeze.
