“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride| said once John F. Kennedy and I’m sure all the bikers agree with him.

Assuming you already own one, here are 7 things you (probably) didn’t know your average bike shop could do for you.

1. First of all, you need to know that you can find a proper bike anywhere, but there are shops that are willing to design a bike from the ground up. The idea of buying a custom bike is good for people with non-standard body types (very tall or small) and also, athletes who are looking for optimal race performance.

2. Some shops can also get your body measured to fit the right ride (whether it’s a pre-made mass-market bike or one of your own design).

3. If you ever have questions about your bike’s parts or whether they are designed to work together, your shop will be able to answer them.

4. Anytime you deal with problems you can always contact them for help and there will be no problem in adjusting whatever is necessary to get your bike in working order.They’ll help you picking the right shoes for a proper bike ride.

5. It is said that the best bike shops’ owners know exactly what the customers need before they enter the shop, so no worries, they help you pick the parts you really need for your bike.shop06. The last but not the least, you’re not alone in this. Many shops organize group rides for a lot of reasons: to build bike community, to give the nervous newbie a way to get started confidently, or to give the seasoned veteran an opportunity to push the limits.
