Finding the Right Bicycle - A 5-Step Plan
Charlotte is frequently recognized as a bicycle-friendly city, constantly striving to improve its roadways to accommodate 2-wheel lanes. Whether you are a beginner or avid cyclist, Try Sports has a 5-step plan to finding the perfect bike.
5 Steps to the Perfect Ride
1. Gather Info
Determine your cycling level and the type of riding you are interested in - road, mountain, triathlon. Get height and body measurements to determine bike frame size.
2. Measurements & Adjustments
Test out a trainer bike that meets the requirements of the information gathered in step 1. Adjust the seat position and height as well as the height and width of the handle bars.
3. Test Ride
Take a 15-30 minute test ride to get a feel for the bike's handling and gears.
4. Evaluation & Adjustment
After your test ride, make any necessary adjustments to the bicycle for a more comfortable ride, or choose a different bike.
5. Accessories & Final Fitting
Once you finalize your bicycle selection, choose the right shoes, pedal system, helmet, etc.
