There are many different types and styles of bikes. You will need to decide on the type of bike you will be making the most to help you narrow down your choices. Below are some of the types of bikes available on the market today.
The first bicycle we will talk about here is the one that some consider to be a comfort bike. This is the type used by weekend bike riders. They usually have a comfortable chair that holds shocks and front forks that absorb shock and wide pedals.
Another type of bike that is more comfortable than a luxury bike is a road bike or a light mountain bike. These bikes can carry much worse items than the bikes mentioned above but are not intended for cycling.
Tourist bikes are for those who travel long distances and are faster than recreational cyclists. These bikes are designed for riding on a paved area. Lightweight bikes have much lower absorbency than comfort bikes.
Heavy Cruiser bikes are more comfortable than comfortable bicycles with fat tires. They are ready for the road, or to ride in the sand.
A real mountain bike has a stronger frame and parts than any other bike as it is intended for off-road and winding terrain. Mountain bike tires are knotted and wide to get extra support. The seat and handles are adjusted so that the rider can lean while steering the bike.
Recumbent bikes are becoming more and more popular with older riders and those with limited physical fitness. The passenger is always whispering as he steps forward on foot. The seat is more comfortable than any other bike. Recumbent bikes sit on the ground and have many gears.
Talk to family and friends who own bicycles to get their ideas on what might be your best investment. If you do not think you will stick to the bike for a long time and if you do not plan to do more than a weekend ride you do not need to spend hot money. Visit many bike shops and talk to a professional before making a decision. You can have many years of fun if you choose the right bike for you.
