If you love riding a bike and want to get out there on the road, it’s important that you know what to look for in a bike.

What’s the Frame made Of?

One thing to consider is the frame material. A lightweight, carbon-fiber monocoque frame will help your bike go faster and be more durable than cheaper aluminum frames.

Another thing to look at is the wheels. A lighter weight wheel with a wider rim width will help your bike save energy when going around corners as well as make it easier to control while riding.

Does it Give You enough Power?

Last, but not least, look at the components of your bike’s drivetrain and brakes. You’ll want to find a bike that has an electronic speedometer and dynamo hub (a hub powered by electricity from the spinning wheels) so that you can always track how fast you’re going as well as how far you’ve gone on one charge.
