Thinking of buying a new bicycle? One of your first and most important choices, will be where to shop. It can be a challenge because there seem to be a myriad of places where you can buy a two-wheeler: from specialty retailers, to giant department stores; from backyard garage operations to the internet.
These days there are many types of bikes, but there are also multiple geometries within the same type. Two riders of the same height and performing similar activities, will often require bikes that fit substantially differently. You should never buy until you've figured out which one is right for you. Measurements and adjustments are required to ensure that the frame is the correct size and geometry, and the seat and handlebars are properly positioned. We ask the questions and take the time to ensure that your comfort and performance are optimized. That may even require changing out certain parts like the stem or saddle.
Modern bikes can travel at high speeds and carry you over demanding terrain where the machine's materials and construction are tested. A quality bike, carefully assembled and fit to you, will be the safest, most durable and fun bicycle to ride.
For these reasons, we strongly recommend shopping at a good specialty bicycle store. At Pedal Power Bike & Ski, we hire expert mechanics and salespeople who'll ensure that you get the right bike and the best quality.
