Right Fit: Choosing the correct size and style of bicycle and finding the perfect fit is crucial to enjoying the ride. Agee's offers each model in multiple sizes in stock unlike many other sellers who only have one size or very limited sizing.

Question

What size bike do I need?

Answer

This is probably the question we hear the most! However, different bicycle styles and brands all vary in geometry (actual frame dimensions), so there is no one answer. The same rider might ride a 20” (51cm) hybrid, but a 56 cm road bike! Similarly, one 56 cm road bike may be comfortable but a 56 from another brand would not be. This is because the number on the size sticker is only one measurement on a bike, and all the other measurements can make a big impact on whether a bike fits well. The solution, then, is to work with an expert at a store like Agee’s. Our fit specialists will make sure that you are looking at the appropriate size for whichever bikes you are interested in. We will set up different options for you to test ride and compare. Then, based on our observations and your feedback, we will not only make sure you are riding the right size, but that all of the possible fit adjustments are dialed in and set up correctly for you.

Question

How much air do I put in my tires?

Answer

Every tire has the recommended inflation pressure printed on its sidewall. It is often printed in raised rubber numbers, so it can sometimes be hard to spot. It will specify a range, like 35-50 PSI. It’s okay to ride anywhere in this range! You can experiment with finding the pressure in that range that gives the most comfortable ride for you. Many people don’t know this, but tires do lose pressure over time. It’s best to have a good-quality air pump with a gauge, and check the tires before every ride, topping them off if needed. Many people use an air compressor, but care is needed with these as they aren’t necessarily designed for low-volume bicycle tires and they can blow a tire off the rim. Just as with a hand pump, it’s important to use a gauge to make sure the pressure is in the recommended range.

Question

Should I oil my chain?

Answer

Chains definitely should be lubricated! This helps keep all their metal parts moving smoothly, and helps keep the bike shifting well also. However, it’s best to use a bicycle-specific chain lubricant, and not regular oil. Basic oil (or especially WD-40) will attract too much dirt and grit, causing the chain to wear out much faster. Agee’s stocks several different types of chain lube and can advise you on the best choice for the conditions in which you usually ride!
