You decided you were going to get a bike. How do you choose one? Well, join us as we show you six tips to choosing the right bike!
Comfort is impacted by things such as the frame and seating position, tires, handlebars and seat. If all of those things are meant for comfort on your bike, you’ll enjoy every minute of it. We also recommend a chromoly frame and fork which absorbs the road well and is still lightweight, upright seating position bike geometry, comfy non-hard leather saddle, and curved handlebars.
We aren’t just talking about mudguards that will keep you dry and clean, but also wheel guards. As far as accessories go, a bell, a sturdy kickstand and a rack or front basket (or both) should have you covered.
The perfect compromise between weight and stiffness is a chromoly steel frame and alloy components. This is both durable, and lightweight and comfortable. It also helps a lot with the next point, which is …
Always look for a bike that has components made of alloy, and a frame made of chromoly steel. They won’t rust, and they’ll last you a good while.
Ease of riding
You should go for a multi-speed model. More gears do mean a touch more maintenance, and a bit more weight, but you get a lot more versatility.
Get a bike that comes with all the accessories you want standard or you’ll be spending time figuring out what’s compatible which isn’t always so easy.
What’s a good example of a bike that covers all of the above?
If you’ve looked around, chances are you’ve found comfortable bikes, lightweight bikes, or good looking bikes. But have you found one that does all of the things we mentioned? One that doesn’t compromise in any of these six key areas? That’s the “right bike”. And a great example is the Peace Bicycles Dreamer.
You get to choose between a Diamond Frame, and a Step Through model. Apart from the frame type, both are basically the same. They come with a very comfortable ride, alloy components, and a 7-speed drivetrain that makes them a pleasure to ride. They also come with a chainguard, mudguards, wheel guards, front and rear lights, and a rear rack. This makes them an overall very complete bike, one you can just get on and ride immediately!

What people are saying about us…
Below are a few reviews from people who bought the Dreamer, and they all love it – see for yourself!
“I am so pleased with my Dreamer Step-Through. It is so comfortable to ride. The seating position is gentle on my back and neck and the pedaling is almost effortless. Additionally, it is such a beautiful bicycle. People on the street shout out to me, “Nice Bike!” “Beautiful Bike!” AND, it’s lightweight enough that I can actually lift it into my truck bed and lift it out (and that’s saying REALLY LIGHT.) It makes me smile a lot!” Step-Through in Pink Customer – Carol L. “I am using my bike for commuting to work and such. The reason I choose Peace Bicycles cause it was everything I wanted and needed in a bike all in one package. From the lights to the bell the rear rack fenders chain guard spoke guard and such. Also it looks nice and classic authentic.” – Step Through in Black Customer – Jason L. “Ordered a Diamond, have had it a couple of weeks now. Easily the best bike I’ve ever owned, the miles are so easy on this thing. I get comments every time I go out on how great it looks, too. Kudos!” – Diamond Frame in Cream Customer – Greg R.
“IT is fabulous. Comfortable riding. When it is not raining and in the 30 degree range outside, I am usually pedaling around town at least 2-3 times a week. Would highly recommend. I fell in love with the European Gazelle bicycle when I was in Germany, but unable to obtain a non E-Bike version here in the states. I did a lot of research on similar bikes that were available and I am very happy with my purchase of the peace bicycle.” Step Through Customer in Night Blue – Karen R.
“Your bikes are works of art. Really looking forward to years of use. I hope your business thrives beyond measure. If our bikes perform as well as we hope over the next few months, I think we would like to link your site on our website if that is ok with you. My wife’s a family doc who, quite rightly, continually promotes to her patients preventive medicine and healthy lifestyles, so biking fits right into that…and I know of no bikes locally that even come close to the form, function and beauty of yours. Thanks again for all your help.” Step Through and Diamond Customers in Cream and Night Blue – Paul D.
“My bike makes me feel cool…. It impresses everyone at the pier concerts in Santa Monica and I can ride around Abbot Kinney with my friends. It rained the other day and I have got to say that the guards do a great job of protecting my clothes from getting super dirty!!” – Laura S. “My wife and I ordered a few bikes last Christmas and I’ve got to say they really get us out and riding more. I feel like these are our nice premium car bikes that we take our around the neighborhood to feel the breeze in. Much like a nice car ride around town to break up a day. Also, love the vintage spoke guard on my diamond. Cheers.”
– Frank L.
