Which bike to buy for college?

Bikes are the most economical,
health friendly, time saving and cost effective mode of communication you will
ever get. This is possibly the reason why a number of elite government as well
as private universities provide bikes at subsidized rates to help students
avail the benefits at low cost.

So in case you want some
information on how to bring home the perfect bike, you are at the right place.
This article will discuss some of the most important aspects of choosing the
best bike while keeping some important points in mind.

i) Go for a second hand bike

 One way you can save some bucks is by getting
it from the final year students who are in the verge of leaving the college and
ready to sell their bikes at affordable price. This is a win-win situation for
both the parties.

ii) Get a test ride

Before buying a bike go for a
test ride to check if it suits you or not. If the bike is not properly fit for
your body it may lead to complications in future. So do not go for style alone.

iii) Chalk out your need

Based on your track and road conditions you should select the best
available option. Whether you need to overcome rough terrains, ride on roads or
scale ups and downs to reach your college, choose your ride accordingly that
best meets your needs.

iv)The tyres matter boy!

A slim tyre, a slick thread tyre or something in between? This will
again depend on the track of your travel. Each type has its own specialty. So
read about these before buying your bike.

v) Is it serviceable?

Don’t buy something too trendy which cannot be serviced by your local
mechanics and servicing stations, just to show off your prized possession. Get
a bike which can regularly be service and if necessary modified by your local
mechanics at an affordable price.                                                                               

vi) Does it come with a

A lot of companies provide a warranty period, free servicing for a
specific number of time, free kits and so on. So before getting the bike, check
out all the possible options and choose the best one.

vii) Online vs Offline

A lot of people do not support the idea of buying a bike online as there
are a lot of issues linked with bikes that cannot be assessed by looking from
laptop. The parts, comfort and adjustment with the body are some of the main
criteria. Since it is always recommended to go for a test drive and get the
parts assembled by an experienced personnel so a large chunk of people prefer
buying from local market.

However low price, numerous available options make online buying
favorable in some cases. Plus a few companies now-a-days provide 30 days return

viii) Buying a cheap bike:

Being a college student it is
hard to buy costlier bikes, thanks to the meager amount you get from home in
the form of pocket money. Simple  steel
frame bikes which are bit heavier than the fancy bikes can be a good idea.

In a summarized tone

In case you do not have much time to read the detailed post above here
goes the list in a summarized way. Go accordingly:

Step 1:  Address
your need: This includes the track (whether highways, rough terrains, smooth
roads etc)

Step 2:  Calculate your expenses

Step 3:  Survey:
Check both the online and offline options. Get
brochures and speak with local mechanics.

Step 4:  If money
is a constraint, get a secondhand bike from a senior or someone who do not use
it anymore. But make sure you check the conditions before hand.

Step 5: No matter you buy a new piece or a secondhand
bike, make sure to go for a test ride to make sure that the bike is comfortable
for you.

Most of the students spend a fortune on fortune on partying,travelling and hiring a assignment writer. hence buying a cheap bike will be very beneficial for them.

 Once you buy a bike, please take very good care of the
following points below:

i) The roads and highways are not racing tracks. Don’t
play with your as well as others’ lives.

ii) Wear helmets and protective gear. These have saved
millions of lives.

iii) In case of any technical problem, take it to the
concerned personnel immediately.

iv) Learn and educate yourself on the traffic rules of
the city and always respect law.

v) Buy a lock and keep your bike safe from bad people.
Even a small negligence can cost you heavy.
