I am writing this post to clear up the mysteries of high dollar bike riding. Does the cost of the bike mean a better ride? Well, that’s like saying back in the day when some jeans were $80.00 and you could get a pair for $15.00. What did you get for that extra $65.00 you spent? Kind of make you go hum! It all boils down to what level of riding you want to your analysis on. Right now I want to stay focused on recreational riding.
What Brand Of Bike Is Better?
Actually, the question is what makes a bike different from the other? They all have a frame and all the accessories are added to it. What I mean by that is the handlebars, crankshaft, seat, brakes, gears, and pedals. There isn’t really much difference except for who manufactured what. So you can actually put together a bike with whatever brand of equipment you choose to fill your desires with the type of ride you want.
I have always said you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get a good bike to ride. It is true that some parts are of a better quality than others but is the extra money really offering you something special? For a recreational rider, things are not as serious as it would be for a professional race rider. So, I’m aiming to unlock the mysteries of high dollar bikes.
High Dollar Compared To Low Dollar Bike – Whats The Difference?
The truth is that a high dollar bike really isn’t going to make up for the extra cost towards your riding pleasure. Highly skilled professional riders may require all the cycle hype that goes into high dollar bikes. But they also are sponsored and promoting these products as well. But for the recreational rider, he or she can get the same pleasure in a lower cost bicycle as well. If you want to upgrade things on your bike such as the crank, cassette & pedals you can. But it still won’t come close to the cost of some of these high dollar bikes which when done you will have pretty much the same quality for much less.
Keeping It Fitness & Fun Over Equipment
If you get involved in the equipment side of bike riding, you will be drawn into spending more than is necessary to do some recreational riding. Much like in the example of the jeans of old. If you don’t remember just think about the cost of Calvin Klein & Sergio Valente compared to some Levi jeans. As a recreational rider are concerned with fun, comfort & pleasure. Neither requires you to go out and spend a fortune to get it.
