If you have ever ridden more than one bicycle, you know that there is a big difference between models.
Choosing the right bike for your application is going to make the difference between a waste of money, and a powerful investment that gives you benefits for years.
So what to look for when you are choosing a bike?
Here is a short guide that will help you choose your next bike.
1. How Are You Planning To Use It?
This is the most important question you can ask yourself. As cool as that full suspension mountain bike might look, it will only be giving you problems on your daily commute.
The super light road bike with razor thin wheels will not be a good fit if your local roads are full of pot holes.
So you need to set your ego and expectations aside here and be as rational as you can. Write down all the ways you want to use your new bike, and what you know about those applications.
The next part of this guide will be in our next post, a few days from now.
Let me know in the comments what uses you wrote down.
