It’s cold...the days are short...and we are eating a lot. That’s right, the holiday season is back and merrier than ever!
This year you might be giving the gift of a bicycle to a loved one, friend, or maybe even donating a bicycle to your favorite charity. A lot of our wishlists had that “one bike” on it in hopes that Mr. Kringle was going to take note. Nowadays, you might be giving the gift of cycling on Kris’s behalf. Either way, we would like to assist you in your bicycle gift giving journey
The bike is the most important purchase, so let’s start there. When purchasing a bike, it comes down to getting the correct size of bicycle for your lucky gift recipient. For children, height (not age) determines the right size. Kids bikes are sized according to wheel sizes. The most common sizes are 12”,16”, 20”, and 24”. Don’t fret, we are happy to consult you throughout this process. We will help you pick the right bike, size, and deliver it to your front door
As for adult bikes, they are typically measured by frame size. Since there are many different styles of adult bikes when compared to children’s bikes, this part can be a bit tricky. To simplify the process, give us a call and we will help you determine the right size/style based on a couple of questions
After the bike is purchased, the next thing to consider is safety and comfort accessories. With the shorter days and colder nights, proper preparation is a must. We always recommend a helmet, lights, chain lube, a water bottle cage, and a floor pump for your tires. We hope this gives you a jump off point and take a look at our website for in stock bikes and accessories. In the meantime, relax and soak up the holiday season!
