If you are new to cycling or returning to the saddle, choosing the right bike can be quite a daunting task as there are numerous bikes available, each with their own purpose and packed with a range of features. You need to take into account exactly where you will be riding (pavement, dirt trails or both), how often you intend to ride and how much you are willing to invest. Locking down your preferences and needs will help you to find the perfect bike, from the different types available, that fit your requirements – whether you’re trying out tricks, racing along or pedaling it out for some speedy thrills.

Types of Bikes

Mountain Bikes are best for cruising around rugged trails and gravel roads as they have been specifically designed for off-road use. These terrains usually have rocks, roots and loose dirt, so mountain bikes are designed with a sturdier frame and wider tires to easily navigate through these obstacles and handle the incline and declines common to the steep terrains.

Road Bikes are the traditional bikes which have been designed to deliver excellent speed over smooth pavements. Designed with lightweight components and much slimmer tires, as well as drop handlebars, road bicycles will go far and fast over the paved city roads.

Hybrid Bikes are a cross between mountain bikes and road bikes. Combining the advantages of both, hybrid bikes are sturdy and fast, as well as versatile enough to cruise through the streets, and also through rugged paths.

Kids’ Bikes – From training bikes to models for older kids, these come in various designs and sizes – even the ones with the wicker baskets that you’ve always wanted. They come packed with all the necessary safety features, so that kids can enjoy the sense of freedom and adventure when they set out for a ride.
