Fancy A New Bike? Here's How To Get One

Are you dreaming of getting a beautiful new bike? With all the wonderful options out there today, it can be hard to pick just one—but it's easier than you think! The key is knowing how to go about finding your perfect two-wheeled companion. From understanding bike types and sizes to choosing accessories and ensuring an enjoyable ride, this process can feel overwhelming but I'm here to show you exactly what steps are needed so that selecting your ideal set of wheels is a piece of cake.

Research and Decide on the Type of Bike that is Best for You

Choosing the right bike can be a daunting task for some, but with ample research, you can find the bike that is perfect for you. One of the most important factors to consider is the type of terrain you plan on riding on.

If you're going to primarily ride on paved roads, a road bike is the way to go. On the other hand, a mountain bike is the best option if you're hitting some rougher terrain. Another crucial factor to consider is the level of comfort you want while riding. If you need a more relaxed riding position, a cruiser or hybrid bike could be a perfect match. Take your time to think through these factors and do some test rides before making your final decision. Remember, choosing the right bike can lead to some incredible experiences and adventures, so make sure you pick the one that's right for you.

Calculate your Budget and Stick to it

Budgeting may sound daunting, but it's a crucial skill to have if you want to avoid overspending. Sit down and calculate all of your monthly expenses, and then create a budget based on your income. This might mean cutting back on some unnecessary expenses, but it's worth it if you can avoid going into debt. The hardest part is sticking to your budget once it's set in place. It can be tempting to splurge on a night out or a new gadget but remind yourself of your financial goals and the peace of mind that comes with having some extra cash in the bank.

With some discipline and effort, you can successfully calculate and stick to your budget, and enjoy the benefits of being financially responsible.

Consider Transport Costs

Think carefully about the cost of your bike transport costs. If you’re purchasing online, factor in delivery costs. If you’re buying a bike from a shop, consider the cost of getting it home. Do you have access to a car or van? Or will you need to arrange additional transport? You can also use the Road Runner transport costs calculator to get accurate transport estimates. Make sure you factor in any additional costs to ensure you get the best deal.

Visit Local Stores if Possible

There's nothing quite like the feeling of cruising on a bike, wind in your hair, and sun on your face. But with so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. That's why visiting your local stores and trying out different bikes in person is a great idea. Not only can you get a better sense of the bike's size, feel, and comfort, but you can also chat with knowledgeable staff who can answer any questions and offer advice. Plus, nothing beats the hands-on experience of testing out different gears and brakes. Don't pass up the opportunity to test-ride a bike and find your perfect ride.

Ask Friends for Advice on the Best Places to Buy a Bike

Finding the perfect bike can be a daunting task, especially when you're not sure where to start. That's why it's always a great idea to turn to trusted friends for advice on the best places to purchase a bike. Your friends likely have experience with different brands, styles, and shops, and can offer valuable insight to help guide your decision-making.

Whether you're looking for a sleek and speedy road bike or a sturdy mountain bike, your friends can give you recommendations based on their own experiences and preferences. Don't be afraid to reach out and ask for their advice – they may have just the insider knowledge you need to find your perfect ride!

Shop Online to Compare Prices and Get the Best Deal

In this day and age, online shopping has become a popular alternative to visiting physical stores. One of the biggest advantages of online shopping is the ability to compare prices of multiple retailers in a single sitting without leaving your home. By browsing through different websites, you can easily find the best deals and save yourself some serious cash. In addition to price comparison, online shopping also offers a wider selection of products, making it easier to find exactly what you're looking for. So, if you're looking to save time and money while shopping, consider giving online shopping a shot.

When trying to decide how to get a new bike, it's important to consider all of the factors. Ultimately, when it comes time to purchase a bike, you should keep all these steps in mind for the best results so that you can enjoy biking experiences pain-free in no time.

Dudes! Are you really asking that? Ok, we et it there are alot of dodgy folks online these days trying to make a quick buck. But now, we have put our heart and soul into Rugged Motorbike Jeans and scamming is the last thing on our mind. We are a small team of bikers, generally adventuring around on our various bikes (supermoto's, adventure, naked street and enduro bikes). If you email us you will generally get our CEO Sam or one of our other support staff who love the motorcycle community and are a part of it wherever we go. Everything is legit as soon as you make an order, it is processed immediately and on the way to you.

Yes & No. We sell a wide range of pants which DO have protective knee and hip pads and are suitable for motorcycle riding AND we also sell biker style jeans and pants which, although are all made of durable tough material are not certified for safety and do not have the protective padding needed in case you do get a little too throttle heavy and lay your bike down (we have all been there and done that!). Please check each product and contact us if you have any questions on this.

Since we offer a wide range from various manufacturers, they all have their own sizing per brand. However there is a sizing chart on each product page, look for the tab just above the description or the size chart link on the right side, or email us and we can recommend the size for you.

PLEASE NOTE : the size charts are taken directly from the manufacturer and the length is incorrect on some, the length is generally a standard length based on the waist size (waist size is correct on all size charts).

Typically the standard FREE shipping (which has full online track and trace) takes anywhere from 7 to 40 days, depending on your country. We also offer an expedited shipping service for a low fee of $4.95. Please see the shipping page for more detailed info.
