Road cycling is a great way to get fit, get outside, be social, see new places and meet new friends. However, purchasing a new road bike is a big investment and can be intimidating if you don’t know where to start. In this talk, we will cover everything from how to choose a shop; how to narrow down what type of road bike you’re looking for based on the type of riding you plan to do and your history with cycling and other activities; choosing between different brands, models, price points, and specs; how to decide what style of brakes, wheels, and tires are right for you; and go in depth into many of the sizing and fitting considerations to take in mind.
Presented by Kat Reinhart from Gregg’s Cycle, who has worked in the cycling industry for 4 years and has 8 years of urban and road cycling and racing experience, this presentation is for anyone who is interested in buying a new road bike, whether it’s your first road bike or you hope it will be your last, and no matter your budget or cycling experience.
