When the Big One Hits: The 10 Best New Bikes for Sale
“It’s a lot easier to ride when you know where you’re going to park.
The Big One will be a real test for a lot of bikes.”
– Andrew Cunningham, Founder of The Bike Blogs, San Francisco “Bike commuting is a lot more manageable with a smaller bike and it can be an experience of taking the time to fully appreciate the scenery.”
– Nick Sacco, Founder and CEO of Bike-Solutions, New York City “If you’re just getting into riding, then a smaller frame might be a good choice.
The bigger frame offers more ground clearance for less weight.
A bike that is slightly wider is a good one for longer trips.”
– Chris Tarrant, Author of The Big Deal, Toronto “Bikes with more room can handle more traffic.”
– David Oates, CEO of Cascadia, Portland, Oregon “It will be hard to go back to riding if you have a big bike.
A bigger bike will make the riding experience feel more fun and comfortable.”

– Joe Sibron, Founder & CEO of The Cascades, Portland “You’re getting more comfort from a bigger frame.”
– Kyle Gebhard, Author & CEO, The Bike Company, Los Angeles “You can expect a much longer ride.”
– Matt Storz, Founder @biketrees, Portland”There are only a few bike brands that make bigger frames, like Giant and Cannondale.
The bikes that come out with the best looks and quality are the ones that have the most volume.”

It will help you maintain your balance.”
– Mike Krahr, Founder The Bike Store, Minneapolis, Minnesota”I would consider a big frame to be a must have if you’re looking to go longer distances and are looking for something that’s easy to move around.”

A big frame is perfect for me because I’m a big rider.”
– Sean Larkin, Founder / CEO @truckey, New Hampshire”I am really picky about my bike and I would consider an extra small bike a must.”
– Aaron Zegers, Owner / CEO, Bikeshedding.com “I’m always looking for the best bikes, but the biggest reason I choose a bike over a big one is the comfort factor.”
