Picking The Right Bike

Picking The Right Bike
Mountain Bike or Folding Bike
The mountain bike is suitable for any cycling activity. So it is advisable for beginners to use this type. However, you should pay attention to the frame size since different people need different frame sizes depending on their height and weight. For example, if you are around 170 cm tall, you may need a 16" frame size bicycle. If you opt for practicality, then a folding bike is good alternative since it's compact and needs little storing space. Choose one with 16" tires, which is suitable for 5-10 km riding. You won't bike more than 10 km for fun, will you?

Full Bike (fully-assembled bike) or Semi Assembled
If you bike for fun, no need to bother about putting the bike together from scratch. Pop into a sports store, pick one, pay, and cycle away. You can get yourself a more sophisticated one that has to be assembled when you have set your heart on more serious riding.

New Bicycle or Second-hand Bicycle
If the sky is your limit, buy the best new bicycle at a price ranging from Rp. 1,000,000 to over Rp. 30,000,000 depending on the frame material ; hi-ten, alumunium, carbon, or titanium. The price of a bicycle with an alumunium frame ranges from Rp. 2,000,000 to Rp. 10,000,000. The rule is : the lighter the frame, the more expensive the bike. If you want to get good quality on a low budget, get a second-hand bike. If this is your option, first check out references in magazines, on the internet or form friends who are more knowledgeable about these vehicles. Buy one that is produced by a trusted high quality brand, and watch out for dishonest second-hand bicycle delears using popular brand stickers.
