Urban arrow in de stad

Would you ever buy a car on the face just because it looks so beautiful? Of course not. You want to know how the car feels, how fast it pulls up, how it takes the turns and how comfortable it is. You’ll only find out if you drive it around for a while. With a bike, it’s quite the same. A test ride with your new bike is even more important, because you have to pedal it yourself.

Shopping with your body

However, a test drive is often underestimated. A tour in the parking lot or a little along the street, but that is not enough. You have to test critically whether the bike really suits you, and you only do that on the feeling. How do you experience the difference between a motorcycle in the front, in the middle or in the back? Do you feel safe and stable in the bends?

Your new bike will be your best buddy for tens of thousands of kilometres, so it is important that it is perfectly tailored to your body. So you can ride around with great pleasure, without any worries. And with a correct attitude, so as not to have any physical ailments.

Testing = check

In fact, a decent test drive provides an answer to several important questions you need to ask yourself:

    • S you comfortable?
    • Bolt the bike well, without friction?
    • Mus you not have to bend over too much
    • Seen the handles well?
    • Switches the bike smoothly, even on slopes?
    • Voting yourself safely and stable, even in corners?
    • Yly you prefer the engine in front, in the middle or in the back?
    • Bikes easily with bike bags?
    • Are the brakes accurate?

Take a lot of time

We can’t repeat it enough: take the time for a test drive. We think of hours instead of minutes. Try the bike out on different types of surfaces. Are you cycling to work or do you plan to do that? Then take that route with the new bike and tell us your experiences.

Do this best in the same clothes you ride most often with. And try to make the appointment for a test drive on a sunny day, so you can take all the time and enjoy it. Without having to cycle too fast to avoid the threat of

Be selfish

On a test drive, you can – no, you have to be selfish and think about yourself. Just because you read a fantastic online review about a specific bike isn’t that you’ll experience that same experience. Every cycling experience is different for everyone. Only your own opinion and feeling counts. How beautiful the sporty photos and videos about bicycles are, you are the only one who can feel if the bike is really right.

Convinced? Make an appointment for a test drive and try this out for yourself.
