Finding the Right Bike

There are a lot of different kinds of bikes:

  • Road bikes
  • Mountain bikes
  • BMX bikes
  • Kids’ bikes
  • Hybrid and comfort bikes
  • Cruisers
  • Jumping bikes
  • Freestyle bikes

What Kind? What Size?

And they all come in different sizes. We specialize in custom fitting and getting you the right bike for you and your riding style.

Some bikes are good for slow family rides. Some are good for banging downhill. Some are good for riding fast on paved roads.

We can help you choose the best bike. We’ll ask you about the kind of riding you do. Where you ride. How often you ride. Then we’ll recommend a type of bike, and we’ll help you choose the best size for your height. Then we’ll adjust it so it fits you correctly.

And then you can take it out for a trial ride. We want you to enjoy riding your bike as much as we enjoy riding ours, and that starts with finding the right bike and right size for you.


Our large inventory helps insure that we’ve got the right bike for you in the right size. And our knowledgeable staff makes sure that you get the bike that’s right for you. If we don’t have the correct size in the bike you want, we can usually have it within 3-5 days.

If you go to a national chain store, you’ll be on your own. They won’t have nearly the selection of different kinds of bikes that we do, and you won’t get help figuring out the differences. And you’ll have to hope you get the right size because you won’t have a knowledgeable and experienced sales person helping you out.

At West Chester Cyclery, you’ll get our expertise and help. And you’ll get to take the bike out for a trial ride in our parking lot. And if the bike doesn’t feel right, try out another one. Until you’re sure you’ve got the right bike.
