Types of Bike - A visual quickfire guide.....

We all love a picture. This week we have a guest blogger Mike McCleish - 

check out his very own blog at

Mike's put together a great guide on buying bikes for the confused unacquainted or just the curious !

Big thanks for the article share - over to 


"If you've decided to buy yourself a bicycle make sure you ask yourself these questions before buying anything: - What kind of terrain are you riding on? - How far will you be going? - What riding position do you like? It can get pretty confusing though... For example: If you're looking to ride long distances, you'll most likely consider a touring bike, which is specifically designed to carry heavy weights. Or, at the other end of the spectrum, we have a "fixie bike," which is a completely stripped down road bike and highly customisable. With fixies, people often customise everything from the handlebars to the crankset (so much so that I recently wrote a review about cranksets on my site - Pinch-flat ). And after you've got all of that stuff right what about things like the saddle height and clipless pedals?! I know, I know.. complicated stuff! To stop everything from becoming too much of a headache I've put together a visual guide. Hopefully, this will help to narrow the type of bike you'd like to own for the type riding that you'll be doing. Check it out :) - Mike " 

Thks Mike we're loving your infographic and enthusiasm for all things bicycle.


Have a great day
