The 5 steps to buying a bike
1.Picking a shop
Where would you like to buy your bike? A nice shop with a wide display of bikes is a good start to your cycling journey. But first you’ll have to find one.
2.Picking a type of bike
Sports bikes are usually grouped into 3 categories: Road, Cross, and Mountain. Each category of bike has a different ride style. We at Masaya will do our best to find the best type of bike that suits you!
Types of Sports Bikes
This type of bike performs the best on roads. The biggest trait to these bikes is that they are very lightweight. The lightest road bikes can go well under 4 kilograms, which is well below half the weight of the average bike. Because of this, people can ride at speeds around 30-40km/hour, which lends itself to be a great bike that can tackle long rides/ long distance rides. The prices of these bikes usually start from 90,000 yen.
This is a bike that can handle the roads of a road bike and slightly rough terrains of the mountain bike. For those who are just starting to ride bikes, the cross bike offers a simple to use straight handlebar, that supports easy steering and a comfortable riding position. This bike combines the lightness of the road bike, and the sturdiness of the mountain bike to be easy to ride. The price for this type of bike usually goes from 50,000 yen. It’s a popular bike for daily use, commuting from and to work /school, and even for touring.
Just as the name suggests, the mountain bikes are made for the mountains and rough terrains. With wide and study tires, and a built-in suspension fork these bikes are made to go through mountain paths. Compared to the cross bike, the mountain bike is heavier, but it is also a great bike for commutes to and from work/school. These bikes go from 70,000 yen.
Bikes in the Road Bike Family
Bikes in this group are Triathlon and Cyclocross bikes.
Triathlon bikes use the road bike as a base and are further specialized to perform in triathlons, which are sorted into more specialized frames that cater to either short or long-distance races, which results in a wide variety of bike models. For more information on these bikes, please ask the staff at the shop.
These bikes are made for cyclocross races. While they do look like road bikes at first glance, the braking systems and size of the tires are best suited for off-road performance.
3.Choosing a Frame Size
Much like picking clothes, picking a bike frame that fits your body type is very important. The beginning may be a bit intimidating, however, please be reassured that the staff at our shop will help with measurements, such as: height, inseams, arm length, and even flexibility of the hips. We will do our best in trying to find the best bike that suits you.
4.Parts and Accessories
In order to ride enjoyably, safely, and comfortably, there are various parts and accessories that are important to keep in mind. A helmet that can reliably protect your head, eyewear that protect eyes, and light that can provide visibility in the dark, and a variety of other tools can provide aid in all sorts of situations. Lets make finding the best accessories and parts a top priority!
For a bike fitting, first we’ll measure you and from there we can determine a good position for you on your bike. While on the bike, we can help adjust the saddle height, saddle placement, handle bar height and width,
