There are hundreds of different brands. It is so difficult to choose what brand to buy. What kind of bike should you buy? You should try and narrow your search. Try to focus your options to three models based on your budget and intended use. Then make sure you take an adequate test ride of at least 15 to 20 minutes—longer if you can. Before you take that spin, though, ask for fit adjustments and a quick tutorial on how the bike operates.You might dismiss an otherwise worthy model if you’re stretching to reach the handlebar or fumbling with a type of shifter you’ve never used. Don’t let the guide to buying the perfect bicycle scare you! It’s not that bad!
