Bicycle Buying Guide

The type of two-wheeler or bicycle has changed over time. In colorful colors, two-wheeled bicycles of various styles are now available in the market. So before buying a bicycle, you have to understand the need and make a decision. Bicycles are now being made with different types of materials. Bicycles are heavier in weight if made of iron or steel frames. Bicycles made of aluminum alloy are somewhat lighter and faster. Bicycles made of aluminum alloy are a bit more expensive than steel.

So the young people of Bangladesh prefer aluminum bicycles. Bicycles made of carbon fiber are the most expensive and fastest. This type of bike weighs less. In addition to weight, there are gear differences. Some bicycles have fixed gears. Like gears, there are differences in brakes. It is important to know the height of your body, the size of different body levels, the length of the torso, and the arms’ length. And before measuring your height, you must take off your shoes. Once you know the exact size of your height and other parts of your body, you can choose the right bicycle size for you that will be comfortable and convenient for you to ride.

If your bike’s top tube is between the seat and the handlebar, has 2 or 3 toes between your legs, and you can sit on the seat and keep your feet evenly on the ground, this is the right size for you. If there is no top tube, check if you can sit on the seat and put your feet on the ground. At the same time, see if you are comfortable sitting in the seat and pedaling. This is the right size for you to hold the handlebars in the seat and pedal normally easily.
