3 Tips for Choosing the Right Bicycle from Eki Cyclery, Honolulu, Hawaii

What type of bicycle should I buy? Rather than purchasing the first bike that you find, the experts at Eki Cyclery in Honolulu, HI, recommend familiarizing yourself with the different designs and features available. That way, you can make sure that you're investing in the perfect bicycle for your needs.

Before heading into Eki Cyclery to see what they've got in stock, check out the following tips for choosing the right bicycle:

  • Select The Appropriate Type: If you don't know what kind of bicycle to get, first consider how you plan on riding it. For trail or cross-country terrains, you'll want to invest in a mountain bike. Road bikes are perfect for long distance riding on pavement, and hybrid bicycles provide cyclists with the ability to pedal on light trails or city streets. Eki Cyclery also offers their customers beach cruisers, folding bikes, BMX, children’s, Lowriders, adult trikes and tandems.
  • BicycleCheck For Necessary Components: Depending on your use, you'll also want to inspect your new bicycle to determine what type of components it is equipped with. With the help of the professionals at Eki Cyclery, they can give you the run down on gears, suspension, wheels and brakes, thus ensuring that your bicycle comes with all the bells and whistles that you need to ride safely and efficiently.
  • Choose The Right Fit: After you've decided on a style and you've picked out what features you want, ask Eki Cyclery to assist with finding the right size bicycle. By doing so, they'll make sure that you can operate your bike without putting yourself in any danger, thus protecting your body and your investment for years to come.
