Maximize your ride with the right bike from top-sellers Diamondback, Nishiki, Nirve Sports and K2. The collection at DICK’S Sporting Goods will have you geared up for aggressive mountain trails, recreational riding through the park or free-styling in the streets.
From experienced enthusiasts to casual cyclists and young children getting the hang of the ride, find a bike that is the right match for you.
Consider these types of bikes when making your purchase:
Mountain bikes are designed to handle well in rough terrain and rugged conditions. With strong frames and durable wheels, these bikes have extra shock absorption and excellent brake systems. You can choose from front, rear, or full-suspension models depending on how aggressive you plan on riding.
29er bicycles are mountain bikes that feature 29-inch wheels, instead of traditional 26-inch wheels. These bigger, thicker tires will provide a smoother ride, more momentum over obstacles and more surface stability. They are often found to be a better fit for larger riders.
Hybrid bikes utilize the same 700c wheel diameter as a road bike, but can also use a straight bar and sometimes front suspension. Performance Hybrids are well-suited for casual road and trail riding, but also excel in endurance training. Traditional Hybrid bikes with front suspension offer a plush ride on and off the road.
Comfort bikes are designed for recreational riders on paved trails and smoother surfaces. Their upright sitting positions with padded seats give riders a supportive and comfortable experience.
Cruiser bikes have a more retro-look and work well on relaxed paved trail rides, boardwalks or around the neighborhood. With upright seating and well-padded seats, these bikes are comfortable and easy to handle.
Road bikes are used for commuting, fitness training, races, long distance endurance or touring. They are built to be efficient with lighter, stiffer frames, narrow tires and aerodynamic seat positioning.
Cyclocross bikes combine lightweight frames with mud-gripping tire tread to perform well in CCX racing. They have drop bars, upright positioning and wider tire stays to avoid mud buildup.
BMX bikes are designed to perform tricks and jumps on the track or at the park. Their frames and wheels are smaller for maneuverability, and can ride on different types of surfaces.
Folding bikes take more of a minimalist approach and are great for saving storage space. Riders sit in a comfortable, upright position and can fold up the bike to store indoors.
Youth bikes are for great for younger riders who are looking to upgrade from their training bike. They are smaller in size to accommodate growing frames, but have the same look and feel as an adult bike.
Bikes with training wheels are an option to help new riders get the hang of pedaling, braking and steering the handlebars. Some are single-speeds, while others have gearing. The training wheels can be removed once they feel confident riding without them.
Women's bikes accommodate a smaller, female body frame. Shorter top tubes, wider seats and lighter frames provide more comfort for the female cyclist.
Adult bikes have a standard size construction that can work for both men and women. While they may cater more to a man’s body type, women are just as capable of riding an adult bike.
Balance bikes are recommended for children between the ages of 1 and 3 years old. Kids can use these as a “walking buddy,” helping them develop the feelings of confidence, coordination and spatial awareness. All they have to do is sit on the seat and use their legs to push themselves around.
Think about where you will ride your bike – will you be trail riding or cruising down neighborhood streets? Choose your bike based on your size and the type of biking your plan to do.
Off-road cyclists should look for a bike that is constructed with a sturdy frame and wide tires, while road cyclists need a lightweight bike that delivers a smooth ride and superior agility.
Cyclists looking to bike both on and off-road should consider a hybrid bike that blends features of road and mountain bikes for total versatility. Look for features that add comfort and ease of movement to your ride, like narrow handlebars and wider seat.
Choose your bike based on your size and the type of biking your plan to do. Ask yourself what kind of activities you would like to do, and where you will be riding. Select a bike based on your personality and your course’s terrain.
Select a frame size that fits your height. To gauge this, straddle the top tube of the bike. Typically, an ideal clearance is 1 inch between your body and the tube for a road bike and 2 inches for a mountain bike. Expect a recreational bike to offer additional stand-over room.
