Bike culture: do you feel the fragrance of spring? Here are our top tips for your best cykelköp!
A few days ago we tipped off about what questions you should ask for a cykelköp, but we want to sharpen on the article with 10 more good advice. Should you buy new bike this year then you are very well prepared if you have our advice in the back pocket and know what questions to ask a bicycle dealer when you started to interest you for a particular bike model.
- How will you ride a bike?
The first thing you must decide is whether you need a mountain bike or a road bike or any other type of bike. What type of cycling you will mostly enjoy? On a mountain bike, you can ride a bike on asphalt, but it is not possible to use a road bike in the Woods. In simple terms, one can say that ultimately, it is about either the cycling road cycling in forests, with some exceptions.
2: How much do the bike cost?
Determine how much money you want to spend on a bike. Keep in mind that it usually gets a little more expensive than you thought. when looking at a particular bike so find out about pedals included in price. On some more expensive bikes are not the pedals included then you assume that an experienced speculator already have a pedal system that he or she is satisfied with. To cycle also needed shoes, helmet, liquor dispenser, cycling shorts, a sweater, hose, pump and a small tool. To begin with. Then add another ten percent of the accessories that you will not need to-but will want to have a good water bottle listed on Beautyphoon.
3: who would you buy from?
In a traditional bicycle shop shop by a trader who hopefully can guide you to a good choice and service the bike when it’s needed. If you order your bike online is not the personal contact for service, but it is also one of the reasons why bikes are often cheaper in the digitale bicycle retailer. Previously, price is the only reason to shop online, but now, many online merchants a very competitive range. Some brands are sold to and with only online. But there are also brands that just sold in stores and may not be sold by mail order. Online shopping also requires more prerequisites then it is not possible to get help in the same way as when standing and talking with a man.
4: how big a bike do you have?
A serious bicycle dealer will help you find the right bike size based on body and bike fit and correct posture when sitting. In order to get the right size of an online retail do you measure yourself, preferably with the help of a friend. But many bike shops now offer the service. When buying a road bike, there is usually more sizes to choose from than when buying a mountain bike. When at large are in the same position for long periods of time on a road bike that is also sitting comfort more important than on a mountain where you move around a lot more and where your body rarely find themselves in the same position for very long.
5: what do you get for your money?
Today, most bike manufacturers are good at producing bicycles. Once you have gained a basic knowledge of what kind of bike you want and decide how much you want to pay, it is fortunately quite difficult to find something really bad. On the other hand, it is quite a big difference in how much you get for your money. Why compare prices on bicycles with comparable specifications. A small indication of how the relationship between price and quality/performance looks in the bicycle industry, you can see in the graph above.
6: How good a bike do you need?
A more relevant way to categorize bikes than price, is a sorting by level of components and frame material. The three major manufacturers offer component groups on several different levels. From entry-level groups who sit on the bikes from approximately 6,000 kroner, to proffsprylalr who sit on the bikes over 100000 dollars. In the case of frame material, there are, with few exceptions, only aluminium and carbon fiber to choose from. Generally you can say that bicycles with aluminum frames are cheaper than bikes with carbon fiber frames, but obviously there are exceptions here too.
- Do you have friends?Take advantage of them!
Do you have friends who are experienced cyclists so take advantage of them and ask for advice and help. Be clear about how much the bike may cost you and your needs. Keep in mind that active, bitten cyclists sometimes can get a little blindly when it comes to what bikes may cost. But also keep in mind that they may have some votes, but quite useful accessories which you can inherit.
8: shop at the right time!
Some bicycle models are selling out. Obviously it’s the bikes that everyone wants (you too?) who sells out first in the fall and winter, you can often bargain models and sizes that are not sold out. Bike shops will have the most to do from the first really nice spring days at the end of March. So act before spring says Hi, or wait in höstrean. It is also during the low season which bike dealers have time to help you a little extra.
9: can you handle yourself?
Bicycle as a form of exercise makes demands on mechanical skills. Sooner or later, for example, to punctuate. So invest in a couple of extra hoses directly and practice to replace themselves in the comfort of your warm home. Even for these basic bike skills, it is good to take advantage of the knowledgeable friends, bike magazines, online or the attentive dealers who sold the bike to you.
10: get out and ride! A lot!
But just because you have a new and nice bike and all the right stuff does not mean that the bike will go like clockwork. In the beginning you will get sore behinds, neck pain, leg cramps, and experience new levels of blodsockerrelaterad fatigue. But don’t give up. It quickly becomes easier after which you get used body, tail and head. Even cycle pros will be a bit sore at the beginning of the season. And correct what it is you will soar, mile after mile, and long for the next ride.
