URBAN BIKING – Tips For Buying A Bike

Uploaded on Aug 15, 2011
Are you ready to start urban biking? Buying a bike can be an intimidating process as there are so many choices on the market today.

It took me six months before I was ready to buy my first commuter bike because I was suffering from information overload. However, going shopping with a friend and following the seven easy tips from Ron Bishop from the Bay Area Easy Riders (featured in this webisode) I finally made the leap. It’s been over a year since I purchased my bike and I am still happy with my bike!

I hope these tips will help you find the perfect bike for your needs.
