    Buyers Guide

    City and hybrid bikes cover a multitude of bikes and uses whether it’s getting to and from work, around the city, exploring paths and trails or going out for a ride on a Sunday.

    The type of riding you are doing will determine which is the best bike for you.

    City Bikes are designed for use in and around the city and are ideal for commuting. These bikes sit the rider in a more upright position for greater ride comfort. Frames are made from aluminium with a hi-tensile steel fork, or on more expensive models a carbon bike.

    For women there is an added option of whether to get a step through frame, for ease getting on and off the bike, although the step through frame sacrifices a bit of strength and rigidity compared to the normal frame.

    The gearing on these bikes start use 7,8 and 9 speed shifting with 3 chainrings for a range of 21-27 gears.

    Hybrid Bikes – Are a combination of road and mountain bikes, using road bike wheel size (700c), but with wider tyres and the robustness of a mountain bike with a suspension fork.

    The suspension fork delivers a smoother ride, and many come with a lockout feature for it to behave like a rigid fork, but they do add weight to the bike.

    The gearing on these bikes start use 7,8 and 9 speed shifting with3 chainrings for a range of 21-27 gears.

     

    Flat Bar Road Bikes – Are great for longer commutes or for fitness and leisure riding. These generally use lighter weight frames and sometime more performance based geometry, but not as aggressive as a road bike.

    These bikes are often equipped with a carbon fork for greater ride comfort and reduced weight, technology used on most road bikes. On some of the higher models the gearing is copied from road bikes too, with two chainrings on the front for improved pedalling efficiency and 9 or 10 on the rear for a wide range of 18/20 gears.

    The riders position on these bikes will be less relaxed than on the city bikes or hybrids in order to go faster, whilst not being as stretched out or aggressive as on a road bike.

    Hi, My name is

    My question about Ridgeback Meteor Mens City Bike 2018 - Silver is...
    Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

    Pre-Launch

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
