Ladies, finding the right bicycle for your shape and size is just as important as learning its safety features. Unlike men’s bikes, ladies bikes tend to be lighter with smaller frames and narrower proportions. These bikes are suited for the typically smaller framed bicyclist who desires a comfortable and relaxed ride.
Greg at Bicycle Barn can show you how to choose the best bike for your needs. Checking for details such as the distance is between the handlebars and the seat is an important aspect. The reach should be measured in comparison to the length of your arms and your overall height. A comfortable reach will allow your body to sit securely in an easy position while allowing for a stress free posture on the lower back.
For a portable option, look for models made of carbon fiber or titanium. A folding bike is also an excellent choice for the lady who desires a more portable feature for her riding experience. Small and lightweight, these models are ideal for those with limited storage or physical mobility.
Stress on the shoulders can make for a short and uncomfortable ride so make sure your handlebars are not too wide for your frame. The smaller your frame, the narrower the handlebar width should be. This provides for a comfortable grip and direct posture while enjoying your ride.
Since women can have an issue with large gear shifts and brakes on their bikes, it’s best to check these very important parts before any purchase. Have Greg at Bicycle Barn direct you to any one of their test bikes. Have a seat and get the feel of each gear and brake to check for manageable use before you commit to buying. Doing so will ensure an easy and safe riding experience.
A lady’s bike seat should be well-suited for ease of movement and position adjustment while riding. Ideally, the knee should be slightly bent and in a relaxed position at the pedal’s lowest level when resting on the bike. It’s best to find a bicycle dealer who offers several options for testing various bikes prior to purchase. Trying out a variety of bicycles with Greg at Bicycle Barn can help you find a bike that suits both your need and comfort level for the best riding experience possible.
