Guide to Buying a Bicycle
What type of bike should I buy?
The type of bike you are going to buy should reflect what you are going to need it for. Will you want to ride off road or do you just want to commute? Will you be riding mainly on roads, or on dirt tracks and through fields and forests? You might want to get a general all purpose bike or one that is more specialised.
What different types of bike are there?
There are lots of different styles of bikes available today. Here is a brief description of the styles available to help you make your choice:
How can I tell if it's a good fit?
It's important to buy a bike with the correct frame size. Some bikes have men's and women's versions - the men's version normally has a high cross bar, whereas women's have a much lower crossbar. If a bike has a conventional high cross bar, if stand astride the bike, the cross bar should be about 5 cm below your crotch. When sitting on the saddle, you should be able to put your toes on the floor on both sides together. (Note that the height of the saddle is usually adjustable.)
What accessories do I need?
It's important to have a helmet, a set of lights, a secure lock and a repair kit. Lights are a legal requirement for cycling after dusk - you must have a red light on the rear and a white light at the from. Halogen lights are the brightest and therefore the safest. Note that the helmet you get should be brand new (so you know it has not been damaged - they only work once!), and should fit snugly to your head, not obstruct your vision, and attach with a strap under your chin. A helmet will not prevent you from having an accident, but it may prevent you from getting a serious head injury.
