This is a great time for cycling. With the success of the British Cycling team, more and more people are taking up serious cycling. As with all sports and activities, there is plenty of equipment on the market to cater for all needs and budgets.
There are many bicycle brands. For most people, their initial decision is to choose the kind of bike they want to buy. There are many mountain bikes to choose from in addition to the wide number of road bikes. Obviously, the type and brand of bike you choose will be determined by what you want your bike for. The second decision will undoubtedly be how much you want to pay for the bike.
There are a number of well-known cycling brands for road bikes. The most famous of these road bike brands are Scott, Colnago and Ridley and prices for these cycling brands range from a few hundred pounds to several thousand pounds. It is essential that you buy your bike from a specialist either online of in store. A specialist can show you the best bicycle brands and help you choose the best brand and bike for your needs.
In terms of mountain bike brands, again there is a choice, though a smaller one. The two main MTB brands are Scott and Moda. Again, prices start in the low hundreds on both brands up to several thousand pounds for a top of the range bike. There are mountain bikes available for both men and women. Cheaper bikes offered by the MTB Brands are ideal for novice riders, but the more experienced rider will probably prefer to upgrade to a more expensive model.
