Womens Bikes - What to Look out for

By Reid Subscribe to RSS | May 19th 2012 | Views:

Using a bike to get around is becoming increasingly popular all over the world, especially in larger areas where traffic is getting to be a really serious issue. So if you're looking for a way to get around easier while also taking care of your physical health to a good extent, then you should definitely take a look at the market for womens bikes and see what you can get for yourself.

Of course, buying something like this should be done carefully and with regards to the various differences between the models on the market – especially if you plan on using your bike for a longer term and want to make sure that it remains in good condition all throughout. Bikes can be very picky with regards to their maintenance, especially womens bikes which are usually made in a slightly different way which makes them a bit more susceptible to physical damage. If you bought a quality model in the first place though, you shouldn't have to worry about its maintenance so much.

There are different types of womens bikes, just like those aimed at men – they're usually classified in terms of their primary purpose. The two main groups you'll want to consider are city bikes and mountain bikes – there are also touring womens bikes but those have a very niche purpose which likely won't interest you so much. The difference between city and mountain womens bikes is implied in their names – the first are more suitable for getting around your town's streets and driving at a relaxed pace, while mountain bikes are suitable for more rigorous use such as driving around mountain trails and hills.

The thing is, mountain womens bikes can still be used just fine in the city – you just have to get the hang of riding yours properly. There's nothing stopping you from using a mountain bike for everyday purposes, and some people actually prefer to do that. You'll get various benefits by doing that – mountain bikes are a lot more durable by design and they can withstand some harsh drops and turns, whereas city bikes are made with the assumption that you'll ride the bike at a more relaxed pace and won't put it through such harsh use. Because of this, you can usually drop from the curb and things like that more easily when riding mountain womens bikes, while with a city bike you'll need to be more careful and ensure that you don't break it.

It's still up to you though – in the end, you just have to pick whatever's more comfortable for you, and if you decide that you enjoy the idea of riding city womens bikes more, then so be it – check your local store to see what they have to offer in this regard and get something that will suit your body type and personal taste. Pay attention to Internet stores as well, as those tend to have some pretty good offers most of the time especially if you catch the store during a nice discount.
