Where to buy bikes online before sales start surging again –

Warmer weather is now here, which means spending more time outdoors.

If you’re not a fan of swimming, hiking or running, one activity to consider to get moving is bike-riding.

Bike sales were booming last year once spring rolled around, and bike-makers struggled with inventory shortages as people searched for something to do during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

Since spring has arrived, now may be a good time to invest in a bike before the buying surge begins again.

Plenty of retailers sell basic bicycles and equipment — Dick’s Sporting Goods currently has sales right now — and you can also search higher-end inventory at bike-specific stores like Sun & Ski Sports.

Here is a roundup of where you can buy bikes right now, from mountain to road to exercise bikes — organized by price (high to low).

If you’re more into taking a leisurely bike ride around the neighbor or as a mode of transportation, a road bike is most likely the best fit for you.
