How to pick out a Road Bike this Cyber Monday
Buying a road bike, especially when it’s your first one, is always an exciting experience. Soon enough, you realize it’s also quite a headache. There are always so many choices that it’s easy to get overwhelmed and falter. Before you know it, you’ll be staring at all the available options and asking yourself, “Which bike should I buy?”
So how do you make this complicated decision into an easy one? For starters, you should be considering only five things when picking a bike; your budget, type of bike, the frame size, gear choice, and color.
The first thing you want to do is set a budget and make sure you stick to it. The good thing about all the Cyber Monday deals is that you’ll be able to see some amazing performance road bike at very affordable prices. You may even have some change for accessories after you’ve purchased the bike.
The next thing you want to do is decide on the type of road bike you want to get. The decision will depend on the type of riding you plan to do. Will you be going on long endurance rides? Café rides or the occasional time trials? Most people pick an endurance frame or a racing frame. You can tell which frame is best for you from your riding style.
Next is the frame measurement, and truth be told, this isn’t an easy decision to make. The best thing is to go with the measurements of your old bike if it fits really well. Once you’ve decided on the measurements, you need to pick a color. Luckily, this is easy; just pick a color you love.
Finally, you need to pick the type of gear (standard, compact, or mid-compact) . Again this is a decision that is heavily influenced by your type of riding and your riding performance. If you’re still not sure, you can always get a compact gear.
