Qualities of a Good SIngle Speed Bike Shop

Everyone knows they're just doing their job, but we usually can't help but get annoyed whenever a store attendant comes up to us and asks, "Can I help you? Am?" Sometimes we don't want to be disturbed; we want to see some things for ourselves. But when it comes to the attendants of bike shops that "pester" you are often a welcome gesture; Especially if we don't know what kind of bike we are looking for.

A good bike store should offer bikes in a wide range of sizes and types. They should sell at least a few variants of the most basic types: road, mountain, single speed, fixed gear, and whatnot. The more they have to offer, the more likely you are to find what you need. You can also buy single-speed/fixie bikes via an online store.

You can't feel how well the bike handles until you test it. If you're in a brick-and-mortar bike store, feel free to ask if you can take it for a spin. Most of the time, they won't allow you, but good stores will at least let you ride it steady so you can get the feel of it.

Another good quality of a good bike store is if they provide fitting services, or at least its attendants know anything about bike fitting. Simply put, they recommend biking according to your body type and different measurements. That way, you can take home the most comfortable and ergonomic bike you can afford.

Lastly, good stores have attendants who can't force a bike on you. Sometimes, they will feel pressured for their sales figures, commissions, and so on and try to get you a bike that you don't even want. As mentioned above, the right bike for you is the one you want to ride. For example, if you're set on a fixie, don't allow them to talk to you because they hate fixies.
