Now that the weather is finally nice, many people will be out and about on their bikes. If you've been wanting to get a new bike, here are some tips from Angie's List.

Whether you are looking for a road bike to ride fast, a mountain bike for more off-road trails, or a cruiser just to use around your neighborhood, there are a number of options.

It's important to get properly fitted, just like you would when buying a pair of shoes.

Any local bike shop can help you make sure you have the proper fit. Make sure you have a price point you are comfortable with and keep in mind that helmets, water bottles, and maintenance will cost extra.
