Finding the right bicycle for your shape and size is just as important as learning its safety features.
Things to Consider
Check for details such as the distance is between the handlebars and the seat. 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.
Stress on the shoulders can make for a short and uncomfortable ride so make sure your handlebars are not too wide for your frame. This provides a comfortable grip and direct posture while enjoying your ride.
Your 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.
Before purchasing any bike, give it a test ride to ensure a comfortable and safe riding experience.
