Why Price Matters
In general, the more you spend on your bike…the lighter, faster and less costly to maintain it will be. After a certain amount (about $2000), the gains in quality and maintenance level off.
Picking the right bike size is all about comfort and safety. The number one factor for ensuring a comfortable safe bike size is your height (or more specifically, your inseam). Most bikes can be selected based on knowing your height alone. However, for some bikes and some riders, it is helpful to know a few more measurements. If you are curious what bikes would fit you best, check out the chart below.
