Any bike enthusiast will say that each bike is made for someone’s preference. Perhaps it depends on the purpose or personality, but surely there’s a bike out there that will suit you just right.
Love competition and speed? Road bikes are for you. These are designed to be ridden fast on smooth pavement. They have slim and smooth tires, and drop handlebars that can be used for on-road racing.
If you are the type to take charge in challenging pathways, mountain bikes are for you. Mountain bikes are designed for riding rough off-road trails. They have upright or flat handlebars and a low gear range for pedaling around steep trails. Most have some type of suspension and shock absorbers.
If you are a no average rider who loves to show off, BMX bikes are perfect. These are popular with kids because of their small size, but both kids and adults usually use them for various styles of stunt riding. Ask Erik’s Bike Shop Inc. or other sellers in your area for the various BMX choices available especially those that will suit a bigger build.
For practical and levelheaded riders, a folding bike is your perfect partner. It is ideal for those who need to travel with their bicycles, bring them on their boat or plane, or who live in small apartments and want to save some storage space.
If you just love to keep things smooth and slow-paced, you might want to check out recumbent bikes that have low seats, long body and a full-seat with backrest. Recumbents are available in two and three-wheel designs.
Romantics and those who love company can have their way with tandem bikes built for two. They come in all styles, from hybrid and cruiser tandems for the boardwalk, and for off-road mountain bike tandems, and high performance racing tandems.
There is always a bike perfect for you, you just have to find it and enjoy the ride.
