Terms Used by Bicycle Dealers
Bicycle dealers offer sales of new and used equipment. They help customers choose the best framing and tires for the cycling they plan to do. Riding to work daily differs from riding up mountain trails. Bicycle retailers specializes in providing kids and adults with the right equipment for casual or professional riding on all surfaces including asphalt and dirt. Learn more about the terminology used by the dealers of this specialized equipment before going shopping online or in a store.
Cruiser – Cruisers are most commonly used on and near beaches. This style has “balloon” tires that provide a comfortable ride on sand or pavement with just one speed for the rider's comfort. The framing is not designed to take the abuse that comes from riding on rough dirt trails.
Frame – Bicycles come with two main frame options. The men's model has a supportive bar that stretches from the handle area to the back tire. The women's model doesn't use that bar making it easier for women to get on and off the equipment. Ask the shop owner how much weight the model supports so if you carry gear, the excess weight doesn't damage the tires or rims.
Gears – Cruisers don't tend to have the gears that 10-speed, 12-speed or mountain bikes have. The gears make it easy for riders to drop to lower gears while pedaling up steep slopes.
Wheels – Wheels play an important factor in comfort. Beach cruisers have tires with extra air to provide cushioning during the ride. Mountain bikes have thicker tires with deep treads for riding through dirt and mud. 10- and 12-speeds have very narrow tires making them great for races.
Searching for reputable bicycle dealers has never been as easy or simple as we've made it. You can browse dozens of various bicycle dealers, learn about events, read the trade periodical, or even browse our direct store.
Bicycle dealers should be a one stop shop for a bike rider to pick up any necessary accessories or supplies. A bike shop will have a wider selection than department stores that have a bicycle section. A bicycle dealer would include all of the different kinds of bikes. Common forms are mountain bikes and racing bikes built primarily for speed or a road race. Other bicycles are built as a stylish, comfortable ride including the beach cruiser.
Consider where the bike will be used and for what purpose when looking for a new bike. The frame and the wheels of the bike determine its usage. A BMX cycle or dirt bike is built for stunts and has a lighter frame with wider wheels. A tour bicycle is built to maintain stability while holding extra baggage weight. If looking for a mini bike or something with a motor, you may have to find a store that specializes in go karts or dune buggies.
Cheaper bicycles can be found used online on auction and classified based websites. If buying a used bike, it is best to test out the frame and durability. If purchasing cycles for your kids, make sure they are with you so the bike is the right size. Family camping trips are a good place to ride bicycles. Stop by a shop to purchase a bike rack and helmets for all family members. Purchase backup parts for quick and easy repair. Enjoy the scenery and pedal your bike in comfort.
