Are you ready to start urban biking? Buying a bike can be an intimidating process as there are so many choices on the market today. However, once you know what type of bike you want (urban, touring, mountain bike, road bike), following these seven easy tips can help you find the perfect bike for your needs. Buying a bike is a process. Unless you know exactly what you want, you will have to test ride several brands and styles (just like buying a car) and you will have to figure out what comes ‘standard’ with a bike and what you’ll need to get separately. Having a strategy will help you find the bike that is right for you.

I hope these tips will help you find the perfect bike for your needs!
