So, a new bike doesn’t have to be better than what you’ve got. Trading down from your current bike will mean trading up your fitness. After a year of torture on your new bad bike, treat yourself to a ride on your old good bike. Like magic, it will feel like a new bike again.

A new bike! Do you want to try riding on a slightly different surface?Good reasons to get a new bike. Because manufacturers inform you this years model is 20% more rigid, 12% lighter, 7 % more aerodynamic and only 33% more expensive.

If you buy, everyone’s a winner! If you don’t buy a new bike, it means you will be riding a bike that is potentially slower than you could be riding. By Steve Casimiro | August 23, 2013. [wpfp-link] Some of us already know whether we need a new bike, some of us always know whether we need a new bike.

But others of us, well, we’re wracked by indecision, boxed by budgetary constraints, or out of room in the garage, gear shed, or apartment hallway. Whichever category you fall into, however, you will no doubt find our decision tree. Here’s what not to do when buying a new bike. Don’t Buy Without Taking a Test Ride.

You don’t know how a bike truly fits or handles until you’ve hopped in the saddle and taken it for a. Once you purchase the bike itself, you need to keep paying a $39 monthly subscription fee, or you’re left with just three classes and a free-ride mode that displays only real-time data on the. If you have a 3, 4, 7, 8 or 14 speed bike with an internally-geared hub, you can pretty much shift into any gear at any time, although you should take the pressure off the pedals before you shift. Make sure older 3-speed bikes are adjusted properly from time to time. What you will see in these charts is that adult bikes are generally measured by their bicycle frame size.

Wheel size is a very important metric if you are a child because you need to be able to stand over your bike if you want to ride it, and wheels that are too big won’t let you do that. You don’t need a shed full of tools to achieve this, but it helps to have a friendly bike shop nearby in case you need advice. 6. Clean and oil your chain regularly, particularly if riding in. If you’re bringing an old or used bike to a shop, be mindful that a handful of repairs — a set of tires, a new chain, a new wheel — can add up quickly, and require a lot of labor. Bike theft is a really unfortunate part of cycling.

No one wants to be the victim, but it happens, and a good bike lock can help to protect you.. Most bike locks are rated by independent testers.

The bike fit is so important that you should get one every year even if you are riding the same bike from last year on which you already had a fit.

You should never discard one bicycle just because you have bought another one more reason for keeping the older bicycle is to have a sporting-quality machine to lend to interesting people.

  • Managed to get myself a 2014 S Works Venge with Campy Record, S Works Carbon Crank and Tuff Carbon wheels with Chris King R45 Hubs for just 1500 pounds, with all the papers
    Second hand any day man

  • I dont know if i could live without this channel. I literally just found this channel and immediately subscribed about 3 months ago now. Anyway i watch this and #gmbmtech all day long every single day since. Now i feel i must be addicted. Iv since baught a brand new gt pantera sport. It is a plus size bike and iv upgraded literally everything beside the bottom bracket crank and rims n tires but i will be upgrading those very soon. I appreciate you guys at gmbm very very much. I love all the information, maintenance tips and all the little details on the newest tech. Please keep it coming and please keep up the great work you all do. Thanks again. Always watching��

  • Currently shopping for my next road bike… second hand. Definitely can’t afford brand new. So much has changed since I used to do sprint distance races 35 years ago. Wow! Where do I get started again! Help!

  • Well Honey, there was this avalanche and I dig it out but then there was a big land slide and I dug it out but then there was a tsunami and I fished it out but then the volcano erupted and the lava melted it. I loved that bike but believe you me that’s why I need a new one. OK?

  • I own both full and a hardtail. I’ll tell you this. I ride my hardtail 80%of the time. It’s a way faster bike and climbing is on a different level then a full suspension.

  • Yeah……….The one that New and Expensive bike make you faster………..So i will get another one………………WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • People who bash gravel bikes are often too serious about cycling. I’ve bought one as my only bike and I will never be a serious cyclist. Its more comfortable than a road bike and still pretty quick, whilst allowing you to explore different paths and tracks.

  • I test rode a dh bike at a bike park a few weeks ago, all I could think about is how much better everything felt than on my trail bike so much so that my trail bike is less fun now, because I constantly think I’d rather be on a dh now. So now I’m in the market lol

  • My Foes Weasel lasted 20 years before it started asking if it could retire (literally need re-tyre with 20yo Gazzaloddis).
    So I bought a 10yo Giant Faith 0 that should last out my retirement (52 now…).

    Anyone done better than 20yrs on one bike?

  • What year is it? Stack and reach have replaced ETT and HT in these matters as they compare more easily and eliminate fork, tire and angle differences. Love your attention to detail but your current approach really overcomplicates things.

  • Im finally getting a new bike after riding my dads 15 year old diamondback bike. I cant wait, this is going to technically be my first bike I’ve bought an owned.

  • I wish I would have found this video before I purchased my $7000.00 custom trike. I lost several bolts on my first ride.

    Thanks for the info. I hope everyone who is purchasing a new bike sees your video before they try to ride there new bike or trike.

  • I have a cube cross race, bought before I watched any of your videos with james and thought that I made a mistake for really being able to enjoy the bike, to be honest it’s been a great purchase, I really like the way it rides, I don’t know if this is because it’s the only real drop bar bike I’ve ridden or whether it’s a bit like the caadx, slackened geometry to make it a more all round bike. Fitted some road tyres and I can keep pace with my brother riding a specialised allez so not too shabby

  • Nailed it! I got a gravel bike and bought a second set of wheels one for trails and one for road. Easy to switch between the two, done races on it cos it has decent 105 groupset and it’s so much fun on the trails. Plus I got it to do some bikepacking! And then lockdown happened ��

  • in my lowest back gear is catching the chain on the one second gear ring. I figures my wheel, frame or rings are twisted a bit on the right but will work it out latter.

  • Make it from your city appt to hitting a trail hard. Keep up with your Roadbike friends and MTB bike friends (keeping up…not race…) and have some fun adventures. I just posted my first bike vid demonstrating the capabilities of a gravel bike in an urban adventure setting having fun tearing up the park in my back yard. Also pass people on grass to maintain distance and take fun scenic shortcuts. Very practical. Lots of fun.

  • Next year you’ll see gravel bikes with straight bars, i’ve had a 26er hardtail Alu frame with no suspension forks for years, super nippy but not hip at all, the frame and wheels would take disc brake but im still running V brakes, i think of it as an All Terrain Bike, slicks for tarmac or some off road tyres if needed, also usable as a tourer. fashions come and go but the pedals keep turning. great channel, love the bike packing vids. cheers

  • Could we ask James to do a BFT on gravel bikes? Including the trend to wider and wider flared drop handlebars? I remember him saying he wasn’t that happy with his set up in Vietnam?

  • Hi I’m 180 cms tall, will this bike fit me. https://uae.souq.com/ae-en/sunpeed-mars-52size-aluminum-road-bike-with-carbon-fork-racing-bicycle-with-shimano-clairs-groupset-1787300589/u/?aff-ident=1101l5FojNgp#specs

  • I have nearly always bought slightly used tyres for my MTB as I ride a variety of stuff on it. I bit the bullet the other day and bought a new pair of Conti Race king Supersonic for my commute and it has completely and utterly transformed my bike…I hadn’t realised how poor some of my tyres had got. £55 for the pair….best and cheapest upgrade ever..

  • more a valid question around the 1000 pound point I guess. You get starter beginner aluminum kit (but a proper good beginner bike though) for that, or a second hand with a higher level of groupsets or even carbon frames and such.

  • Mountain biking has become something I’m beginning to think is out of my reach. I cannot even imagine buying what it would take to race, let alone asking a question like this…buy a new one or?
    Shame. I’m not the only talent wasted this I know, and it’s why these so called pros have no real competitors…just spoiled rich kids…ya I know, not all of them.

  • The actual formula is b = n+1 = r-1 where b is the number of bikes you want, n is the number you have right now, and r is the number at which your spouse will leave you.

  • Seems you can get better components at a much lower price by upgrading. Make sure the frame and swing arm geometry work for you. If so, then upgrade and have fun with top level brakes, fork, and rear shock, derailer…then the little stuff. Parts go on sale/clearance often, so affording last year’s best instead of this year’s average on that new bike is the way to go for performance and budget.

  • A year ago I really wanted a carbon road bike with hydro disc brakes to put a lot of miles on… I bought a year old Defy 2 Advanced for 900 Euros with spare front rings and a bike computer thrown in and fitted with a 105 group set… Found it in France on leboncoin.com. I couldn’t get a new carbon bike with hydro disc brakes for anywhere near that and I have been delighted every km since!

  • @Global Mountain Bike Network… modern mountain bikes suck because of destandardization in the bicycle industry and adoption of 29er wheels because of US tariffs on foreign-made 26″ wheeled bikes. This makes for bloated mountain bikes with bicycle parts that won’t be supported by the manufacturer in the future.

  • This is so far from a comparision I was expecting lol
    A friend of mine just bought an 2012 fuji for $800 which retailed for over $4000 when it was released. I was expecting something like that to be compared to a cheaper model that sells today like on the beginner carbon price around $2000.
    If they were going to compare the same bike they should have compared a used one and a new one around the same price… just my thought, to see if it would be worth buying a bike with less spec but new instead of an older bike for the same price or cheaper with better specs…

  • I have a short travel 29er but I find my self wanting more travel so should I buy a trail/enduro bike or should I make my bike a 29/27.5 mullet and add a longer travel fork?

  • It’s cool to buy a brand new bike, when you can afford what you want, BUT upgrading your existing bike it’s like maintaining your relationship with a good old friend

  • I have a 4X racing hardtale since 2014 and have changed nothing but the drive train on it. Funny thing is the discipline has already died but the bike still runs like a dream

  • My old bike, a Scott Aspect was great fun for 700 quid. It was costing me £150 per year to jeep it running next year, the maintenance costs would have exceeded the cost of the bike. It was time for a new one. The Scott was great but it was also time to upgrade. Got a Whyte g170s. More expensive and capable, but, I’m guessing that the new machine is going to be more expensive to maintain?

  • I have a 35 year old Centurion Equaliser and it out sprints must carbon bikes, mind you the gearing is different, more comfortable then my carbon bike too.. thanks

  • As someone who has recently bought a new bike, you forgot the “I don’t need to buy a gym membership, so I can add that to the budget” excuse ��

  • Providing a bikes looked after then there’s no limit on how long you can use it, far too many believe the hype and buy newer, lighter bikes when in reality more time on the bike and losing a few pounds would be a lot cheaper.

  • I’m definately more a fan of keeping it till it dies or there is a significant change in bikes that makes it extremely hard to get replacements (eg. tapered head tube and 27.5″ wheels)

  • Morning Cam, Been running my Scott Foil Di2 for the fourth season now but looking to change it for next season….. normaly have changed my bike every 2-3 years but i have just loved my foil!

  • had my Diverge 5 years now, and got it exactly for most of those 5 (or 6) reasons:) its only tyres Ive never really experimented with, just kept the 30 road tyres it came with which dont have off road treads which I can confirm are then useless on anything other than reasonably hard packed dirt off roading wise, so yeah definitely think about the right tyres if you want to mix up with terrain that gets muddy, but it still handles most mixed road conditions you find on the country back roads or farm tracks with loose sand,gravel, and all manner of bumps/lumps/holes perfectly fine far better than a dedicated road bike would,so Id definitely recommend getting a gravel bike.

  • I’m a typical Yorkshire guy and I won’t get new bikes till it either becomes too much of a pain finding decent parts of suitable quality. I’ve always maintained, upgraded or modified to keep them going, my last bike I bought in 2005 and I’ve still got it but its been adapted to a comuter and I bit the bullet and got a new to me last year. Still got the old one though

  • Industry standard for wheels is astonishingly 4mm vertical and lateral misalignment. This is on a disc brake bike. 2mm for a rim brake wheel.

  • Just got an enigma ti etap to add to the fleet and it’s the smoothest most comfortable bike I’ve ever had. It’s sure footed, fast and most importantly, looks good. It’ll outlive me for sure.

  • I’m a short girl (5.2″ 160cm) and I’m looking for a gravel bike mostly for road rides, commuting and weekends out. I do live in Europe, so my choice is a bit limited.
    Budget of 2k
    Any good suggestions?
    With this covid �� I can’t go out and try them as there are no bikes available in the shops ��

  • 5 years ago I bought my first road bike from local bike shop, I had low budget for the bike because I had to get everything else (clothers, helmet, etc.) So my bike was like 700 Ł. Now I know I love cycling and I will be riding in the future so I want to get something better for the next season. I think I don’t want to spend much more than 1k so I will look for 1-3 years old higher spec bike. Can’t wait for what I will find:)

  • So my cheap walmart bike gave out after two years of ownership. I started looking into getting a more serious bike, but before I committed to one, my friend gifted me his 10-year-old cannondale f5. It needs work, but I was blown away by the way it rides. I’m thinking about overhauling it, but I’m not sure if it would be worth the cost. After all, the f5 isn’t worth that much to begin with. Should I invest in my newly acquired cannondale, or go out and buy myself a new bike?

  • The cassette to check and make sure that isn’t loose to either I too have a Cannondale. Sometimes I can set works itself loose. Still don’t know why?

  • As someone who’s had back surgery this is the geometry that works for me specially for longer rides. My Jena’s great! Everyday I’m always excited to ride it.

  • 13:58 “His stem has stopped takin’ Viagra as well”, HAHAHAHAHA! Now that’s the type of one-liners I subscribed for! Top content, lads!����

  • Hello Sir,

    I am from India and a subscriber of your channel. Thanks for sharing wonderful videos with us. I really like the content of your videos. I am planning to buy a MTB. I am confused between 2017 model superfly 5 and 2019 model x caliber 8. I like the components on superfly 5 but frame of x caliber 8 2019 model lools attractive
    please help me.which MTB I should by?

  • 19:00: the manufacturer of frame is “csepel” pronounced totally wrong it’s “chepel” not “chesspell”.It’s sounds like the English word “chapel” but with an e… it’ s a Hungarian bike company and Csepel is the name of a district in Budapest. I recommend their new gravel frameset the Csepel -deepspace

  • Someone told me that I need boost. I’ve been told that I need a shorter off-set fork…or was that a longer off-set? Surely they’re right though, right? Right?
    But I have a blast on my bike the way it is now! I feel like a rock star already!
    Could they be right?
    Rather than build my existing bikes up the way I want…and they would look SICK! Should I just drop 5 grand on a bike that comes with the same old Sram bits and pieces that everyone has on their bikes?

  • Pretty crap that people are buying bikes where the wheels arent true. I bought 2 Giant bikes and an Avanti no issues with any of them.

  • Hey Cam, you seem to ride a lot in the rain and rinse the bike with the hose. How often are you changing your BB and wheel bearings?

  • ok, if you have low end bike (like under 700€) i think it isnt really worth it. If you buy like 1500 bike with good frame and fork you can use it for 5-6 years or eaven more!

  • Do all three-buy new and upgrade old and enter every GMBN and GCN contest, especially when the prize is a whole new bike. Sweetness.

  • Sounds like excellent material for a built or bought presenter challenge video. 1 new highish spec bike, and all the presenters have to build a better bike with the same budget. Could be almost completely second hand frame and parts. New bike with upgrades or any variation thereof.

  • Just recently I’ve upgraded my 2015 strive 6.0 al with a set of new wheels, tire, saddle and seatpost and it’s 100% ready to go. Also got my suspension serviced.

  • Some ppl just try to sell theyr bikes after 1 year for as much money as they can, so they will make sum money and have latest and greatest. That i also a strategy

  • I bought a Boardman bike for like £1000. I didnt check the initial spoke tension and if the wheel is true or not. Few days after my rear wheel completely deformed beyond truing and Halfords (which is Boradman official dealer) told me that wheels are not under warranty. and I had to purchase a new wheel for £120 pounds which is quite unfortunate.

  • Every one knows a bike is only good for 6 months before you have to bin it. Especially if your bike cost less than $4k. Any bike less than $4k is a budget bike. You need the longest, lowest, slackest, and most sprung ride otherwise you suck. If you can’t keep up with the joneses you suck. If you have bad/no credit you suck. If you ride a 26er you suck. If your bike doesn’t have the latest standards you suck.

    These videos are a crock of shit.

  • All riders who don’t race, should have one, myself, i have one amongst my 5 bikes, its the option to go virtually everywhere there’s no traffic, pure fun and enjoyment ��

  • I usually maintain my bikes for like 3 years and sell em on for a new one.
    But I still got my first bike since 2015 and considering selling my scott genius I got last year as it’s a size too small for my preference.

  • Mybike is in the shop now because the pedals were frozen in the crank arms. Remove them periodically and grease them so they will come off when you want them too.

  • I really love my voodoo, and have made changes. However, you do have to think what you’re doing with the cost. So I’m planning to go for a Scott genius. (But will keep the voodoo, it’s just me)

  • Basically I break a bike down to a five year lifespan. And trail bikes become very old fast with “trends”. What I do is take the price of a bike divided by five for five years and that’s the depreciation point. Pretty much matches up with Kelly’s bluebook on bicycles. Usually you get to that two year point where you can get 5O-60% Of the bikes value of well taken care of. And that makes it great down payment for a new bike especially when Trek credit card that you have zero interest for one year.

  • hell no I’m not buying a new bike here in the USA. We’re fooked. Screwed up flattening the curb AND alot of small businesses are about to go in the shitter. Better of buying bullets and canned ��food

  • I got one on order and my wife doesn’t know. I literally only bought this one two months ago…It’s really not my fault though because they didn’t have what I wanted at the time.��

  • Personally I feel that if cost was not so high for gravel bikes they would be perfect for entry level adventurers. To me a gravel bike is the half point between a road bike and MTB. And if you are new to cycling and thinking about taking more seriously than it’s perfect you can ride trails, race friends, and even a great commuter.

    thank you if you read the whole thing sorry its long

  • Yup, bought a new bike from Wiggle. Didn’t check the tires, got a flat right away. Bolts on brake rotors, and general screws have to be checked as you say. Adjust derailleurs. Even when buying from a shop, they don’t (all) check over these details.Be careful, do the above and you’ll be glad you did.

  • Your cycling videos are very well done and very informative.  I’m getting a new Trek bike next week and I especially like the tips that prevent scratches to the paint.  I doubt Trek sells labels like the Mavic labels you show, but I’ll find something to protect those spots.   Thanks again.  I have subscribed to your channel.

  • Another consideration: maybe you want to maintain your existing bike without investing too much, and use your cash to buy an additional bike (e.g. maintain your trusty old full sus, and get yourself a new hardtail or rigid bike)

  • Congrats to your sis. Fine effort. My bike is called Trigger (as in Trigger’s Broom, look it up!) Only original parts are the handlebars, seat post and frame. It’s a Moda Echo and has done 10,760 miles. I have my eye on a 2017 Specialized Roubaix Expert Di2 with carbon wheels in the sales. Maybe you can pop this in the competition next week? 😉

  • McLarens lose most of their value (except for the old F1) and watches definitely lose their value too (unless they’re a Rolex or a Patek for example)

  • Due to the pandemic and coming from an ultra running backroom, I really didn’t know what to get ended getting a gravel( adventure) bike and I couldn’t be any happier with my decision ��!

  • DON’T USE IT Buy a new bike for the warranty? In tree years time all my warranty experiences with Scott had been a headache. Now I got a cracked frame and it looks like whelding is the only solution. Just because I do service by my self…REUSE IT

  • the mounting options thing is not the greatest argument IMO there’s a special class of bikes touring for the ultra long distance rides with no access to potable water. In most of UK you’d really have to make effort to avoid places with water for more than 6 hours…

  • Yup. Back to bikes after a very long time. 64 years old and unfit, and my gravel bike is absolutely flawless. No discomfort, fun over dirt, fast enough on the road. A pure delight. Well spoken chap ��

  • Quite weird location to put your sunglasses! They seem to act as a aero brake, after all those $$ trying to get an aero bike. Plus, you would get the bugs and other road stuff on the other side of your glasses as well. When do you guys remove your glasses? I have photochromic glasses and never take them off. Maybe I should when I get hot?

  • guys every day second hand, just bought a 2012 tcr advanced pro 0 with campagnolo record…… for 800euro with pedale ( keo blade carbon ) and last year i bought a mondraker chrono pro sl 2015 with 100km on it for half the price

  • Hi there mate, I own the same exact bike in the video (Marin Gestalt Two), and I’ve been dealing with an annoying clicking sound coming from the BB area…it happens when i push on the pedals (starting from a stand for instance), and the verdict from my bike guy it’s it probably comes from the frame itself. I’ve replaced wheels, cassette, chainring and BB, everything’s been torqued to specs and properly greased and there are no visible cracks anywhere on the frame. Do you agree with the aforementioned “diagnosis” or do you happen to have any different insight? Thanks in advance, hope to hear back from you!
    Cheers from Italy

  • Sold my road bike the other day (Orbea Avant) because it’s been gathering dust since I bought myself a Mason Bokeh last year for gravel/adventure riding

  • 2015 specialized venge pro in hyper green/black with dura ace 9000 and roval clx60 its my summer bike so 3/4000 miles per summer. Plus a 2015 tifosi disc bike which is for getting to work a d back and ride in pooop weather around 7000 miles per year its had a new chain & cassette every 12months and washed once a week. And has just been sent bk with a crack in the frame under warrenty ��

  • Yo cam, love the vids mate but you need to have a word with yourself because that spag bol looked like it had no tomato based sauce on it what’s so ever. Unbelievable Jeff.

  • Bought it new in 1974, BTW my Brooks Professional saddle cost 20USD, spent 10USD on a cutting edge titanium water bottle cage, relaced my own wheels and had sew-ups, black leather shoes, black hairnet, wool and real chamois shorts, anyway my bike is this: http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d7/k4drd/Bicycles/Schwinn%20Publ%20Pages/1973WorldVoyageurBrochurepg1.jpg

  • Ur videos are extremely helpful dear..
    I also have a new Mountain Bike and it has a different problem its back axle and cassettes are wobbling and now my chainring also started to wobble i have 3 chainring set in front and because of that now chain started to rub on front derailleur.. what do u think is the problem?

  • A little tip when trueing wheels and changing tubes….baby powder. It lubricates the tube so it unfolds correctly inside the wheel. Also, whn replacing tubes partially fill with air first then deflate…then reinflate…this takes any kinks out.

  • When it comes to bar height listen to Lil Jon and Get Low, all kidding aside I don’t see how bigger tires will effect the relative bar height unless your running a larger front and a smaller back, what it might effect is the ability to stand over the top tube without injury.

  • Still pilot an oldschool Giant tcr team. Rolf wheels, all shimano ultegra, speedplay, and have always kept her clean. She’s a head turner still.

  • Not controversial! Good comments. My next bike is going to be a gravel bike. A Curve Kevin titanium to share my shed with my titanium Curve Belgie Spirit. Call me Captain Comfort! (From a 49 yo haha)

  • I prefer used bikes with better quality if it comes to everyday-doing the shopping-traveling around-bicycles, they are really cheap and least pretty long and they never get stolen. But for sportbikes I had to find out there are not many for sale that fit my size (really small). I prefer having a cheap bike for the beginning than an uncomfortable one, even though my budget is really low XD

  • I am a child that is the size of an adult so I am going to need like 4 different sizes of bikes throughout my teenage years… which is in 7 days btw:P

  • The listed price for used bikes are usually aspirational. Usually the real price you can get the bike is between 10-50% lower than the list price.

  • I’ve had mine 2 years but I’m looking to get a new one for racing. Hoping to get one on sale from this years stock when the 2018 ones come in.

  • I suggest you buy your bike at a reputable bike shop that offers a service warranty… Shouldn’t have to do all this if your bike shop is worthy

  • I got a cx frameset and wheels for a redicules price and I mean redicules. I put cx gearing on at first but it wasn’t good for gravel climbs so I put an old claris grouop set on with a 32 cassette and it’s perfect now and the skip in gears isn’t to noticeable. I can just about get a 40mm tire in and again its spot on. Might try a 650 next. I would love a dedicated gravel bike and will always point people wanting a new bike in the gravel direction but for what I’ve built for the money I can’t complain.

  • Great show guys, I guess because there is 83000 watching the new bike video rather than 16000 to maintain and update your bike, people are in to getting a new bike, or atleast dreaming about it. lol

  • I love my components but not my geo and linkage design what do you think of upgrading frame and shock? Does that count as a new bike???
