Step #4: Get the right fit.

What's the most important factor once you've found the right bike? Getting the right fit. Most bike manufacturers offer only a few sizes for each model. Trek offers up to eleven sizes on several models (including women's sizes) to ensure you get the bike that fits your body just right. We will walk you through the entire bike fitting procedure. Riding posture, saddle height, and the position of your feet, legs, and arms will all be taken into consideration. We leave nothing up to chance.

5 Easy Steps to Find the Perfect Bike


Step #1: What riding style is right for you?

The first step in finding the perfect bike: identify what kind of riding you enjoy. do you like riding for miles on the road? taking leisurely rides on the weekend? Barreling down a mountain? For each type of riding there is a uniquely designed bike: Road, Mountain, or City & Bike Path. When looking for the right bike, also consider what riding position you like best - down low for speed, or upright for casual riding.

  • CITY & BIKE PATH
  • Perfect for commuting to work on the streets or riding on paved or gravel bike paths. These bikes offer a smooth ride, hill climbing efficiency, and a cofortable riding position.
  • KIDS

  • BMX/DIRT/FREESTYLE
    Doing tricks or racing on dirt or streets. Trek BMX bikes provide full-on traction and durability.


Step #2: Choose the frame that's right for you.

70% of a bike's ride performance comes from the frame. It's the foundation that everything else is built on. Frame material, construction, geometry, weight, and durability all contribute to a bike's handling, comfort, and efficiency. That's why there are several frame material choices to match your preferences.



Step #3: Compare components.

After the frame, the wheels have the most effect on how your bike preforms. Lighter wheels are faster and climb hills beter. Some seat posts and handlebar stems include active shock absorption for added comfort. Also look for premium seats that fit your anatomy. Higher performance drivetrain components have better sealing mechanisms to keep out crud so they work better, longer. Shimano components are the best in the bike industry.
