knowing whether you want to get fit
Choosing the right bike for you involves a great deal of thought. Firstly you need to understand exactly which type of bike will suit what you want to achieve and secondly you then need to understand where best to buy that bike from to ensure that you get the best one for you.
From road bikes to racing bikes and everything in between, knowing whether you want to get fit, get extreme or simply get around will have a huge bearing on the type of bike you choose. If you wish to race you are going to want a very different bike to if you wish to head off road.
Racing bikes are perfect for those who want to cycle on the road and go long distances or at great speeds. For fitness and racing they are one of the best options, but they will offer little flexibility in terms of any other options, being almost impossible to ride anywhere other than the road.
Mountain bikes are great all terrain options and perfect for those who wish to get extreme, doing downhill racing or getting down and dirty.
And then of course there are BMX bikes. By choosing BMX bikes you may actually get the best of both worlds, as well as the flexibility to modify the bike as much or as little as you want, to achieve whatever you wish. A racing BMX can easily be tweaked to become perfect for stunts and for those who want to get around, be able to perform stunts and even get into racing should they so wish, these bikes are by far the most versatile and interesting.
Whether you choose a racing BMX or a mountain bike, the best place to buy your bike will almost always be online. Not only will they be cheaper but you will also find a far larger range as well as ensuring that those selling the bikes have the expertise to offer you all the advice you need.
