What you should know before buy the bicycle

It is recommended that you know the characteristics of the basic parts of a bicycle:

Suspension: This is a system that is located at the front and rear of the bike. Is designed to cushion the impact of the irregularities and topography of the ground. Without a riding technique, a good suspension does not work. It is also important to define the use of the bicycle, because if it will be use in the mountains, a good suspension is necessary.

The gear mechanism: It is made up of various elements, such as the plates, chains and gears. It is very important that it is equipped with an excellent gearbox, because it is the "soul" of the machine and it is the part that should work best.

The frame: It is the structure that supports the bicycle, and it is almost always made of carbon or aluminum. It is advisable that the frame be made ofaluminum, as it is a lighter material. In addition, carbon is much more expensive and the one offered is usually not of the best quality.

The wheels: The wheels are imposed by each brand and is the part of the bike where manufacturers tend to save. If you want to change them, you have to be aware of the measures: 29 inches for mountain bikes and 28 inches for road bikes.

Urban bike or mountain bike?

Before buying a bike, the first thing you have to ask yourself is why you want it, because a mountain bike does not do its function as efficiently on the road and vice versa.

The Urban bicycle

Almost any model or type of bicycle is valid for driving and circulating in the city. At present the electric bicycle is being imposed in the urban perimeter, and the most suitable model and popular use is "Dutch style”. For the urban cyclist the speed it’s not that important as the comfort that allows you to keep the right posture for the best performance on avenues, promenades and urban roads.

There are 3 models that are the best alternatives for new buyers:

  • The "Dutch style"tour bike, and the most recommended brand is MOMA.
  • The classic bicycle, ideal for those who want to practice cycling and be in fashion. The most sought-after is the Pop Fixie Series.
  • The electric folding bike is completely foldable.

Each type of bicycle needs its own criteria for its selection

Whichever type of bike you choose, if it is not the right size for your body size, it can be very uncomfortable and even cause serious injury or pain.

One way to test if the frame size is adequate is to pass one leg over the frame and stand with both feet on the ground. For a road or urban bicycle frame there should be a distance of 2.5 centimeters between your body and the pole, and for a mountain bike the recommended distance is about 5 centimeters or a little more.

It is very important to consider the design and geometry of each bike, as each one is different and may not adapt to the morphology of the user's body, so it is essential, if you do not know the model to be chosen beforehand, try with the model itself.

Specialists advise you to buy bicycles of the best brands, of tradition in the market. Where to buy cheaper bicycles? You can buy it second-hand in an outlet and if you want a new one, the best offers are on eBay or Amazon. With all the advice and reasons, so that you do not have any inconvenience at the time of making your purchase.
