Our Bicycle Buyers Guide

Below is the honest advice I have given to everyone who comes into the shop looking to buy a bicycle. Hopefully this helps you avoid common problems and leads to you finding a suitable bicycle. Not everyone will fit into the three categories below but they cover enough of the spectrum to give you an idea of what you should be looking for. There is always a balance of quality, price, convenience & support.

New Versus Second Hand

New bikes are a great option. Whilst price goes up considerably buying new, your bike comes with store support and part quality insurance if anything goes wrong. New bikes have no wear or hidden repair costs and can be bought specifically sized for you. Also worth keeping in mind when purchasing a new bike it will hold some value for resale.

A to B Cyclist | $100-$400

Biker Cō sells select refurbished bikes and encourages people to consider this sustainable option priced between $100–300. At Biker Cō our new entry level bikes are high quality with a starting price of $380.

Commuter | $400-$1000

In this price range quality improves rapidly. We start getting hydraulic disc brakes, mid-tier group sets, better gear ranges and overall much smoother riding. With this budget you can get yourself a high quality bike.

Rider | $1000+

Riding is a hobby quite possibly a passion of yours. You probably have done your own research and know a good amount about bicycles. We can order in and build most bicycles within 3–7 days as long as we know your size.

Bicycle Fitting

We can also help with a basic fitting of your bike. This is provided free of charge when you buy a bicycle from Biker Cō. If you are having problems with your knees or back that a basic fitting doesn’t fix then it may be worth spending the extra money to see a specialist physio bicycle fitter.
