Buying a bicycle over the internet is not a simple task, since you will not be able to test it, which can make any difference at the time of choosing the purchase or not. So we selected below some precious tips to help in online purchasing.
1-If it’s the first time, think about your needs first. If you are a regular cyclist, do not start by purchasing bikes destined for extreme sports, choose one that is compatible to your routine even to not harm the bicycle’s performance. Those that are destined for trails have a different vibration than they are for walking.
2-Pay attention to the size of your bike. Your skinny has to have the size specific to your height, or you will risk getting bent or not reaching the ground. Look closely at the size of the frame and search for experienced cyclists. (Place your our site measurements here and discover the ideal bicycle).

3-Compare prices. The difference between sites can be great, so it’s worth searching a lot before making the purchase. On the Centaur’s website, for example, a callus 700 costs R $934, while in netshoes the same model goes out by R $1,049.
4-Bikes purchased by the Internet are delivered disassembled, so when your product arrives you will have to assemble it yourself. If you don’t know how to do that, you need to take it to a workshop. The mounting price varies according to the brand and model and can vary from R $10 to R $70.
5-Choose the site carefully. Give preference to those who already have a name on the market and ask for tips for other consumers. If the site is used for bicycle sales, fetch all possible information, such as the state of the parts and ask for pictures. Be suspicious if the bicycle is too cheap.
6-Require the invoice. It is the proof of purchase and provides the necessary warranty for the case of any subsequent problems.
