Bike buying guide
“What bike is right for me?”
This is a question most of us have asked ourselves, or someone else at some point during our life. Either when thinking about the purchase of your first or next bike, it can often be a challenging occasion. Our buying guides linked below are designed to help your decision making easier and explain the options available to you.
When it comes to speed, style and efficiency, a road bike is hard to beat. Road bikes typically have narrow tyres and large 700c wheels with drop handlebars. Wiggle’s range of road bikes are lighter and faster than our other styles of bikes.
Mountain bikes are incredibly versatile all terrain bikes. These bikes have design characteristics that allow them to thrive on highly technical terrain and withstand the physical demands of outdoor trail riding.
A commuter bike combines elements of road and mountain bike design. This makes for a supremely versatile bike that is perfect for everyday use as it offers speed without sacrificing strength and comfort.
Single speed bikes offer cycling in its simplest and purest form. They are lightweight, low maintenance machines which make them ideal for commuting. Having one gear significantly reduces the need for daily bike maintenance.
BMX bikes are compact heavy-duty stunt bikes that come with 20-inch wheels and wide tires. The bike design has an upright handlebar position with a steep head angle for quick steering. The small nature of the bike makes it very agile.
At first glance a cyclocross bike can look like a standard road bike. However there are key differences that allow these bikes to be used off-road as well. Special tyres, more mud clearance and cantilever brakes are just some of the modifications.
Kids love bikes, it’s as simple as that. A bicycle and a child’s imagination is a potent mix of adventure, fun and boundless energy. The bicycle fuels their imagination and allows them to roam, discover and appreciate their environment.
