How do I know what kind of bike to get?
The most important factor to consider when choosing a bike is the type of riding you will be doing. Road bikes and commuter bikes are best for fast riding on paved surfaces, while mountain bikes are best for powering up steep inclines and bouncing down rugged trails. BMX bikes are for trick riding, and cruisers are ideal for leisurely riding. Within each of these bike categories, you’ll have plenty of options from all kinds of quality name brands. Stop by Orange Cycle and get help choosing the best bike for your needs and your budget. You can test ride as many bikes as you need to.
How do I know what size bike to get?
The best way to get the right size of bike is to come to Orange Cycle for a professional bike fitting. Our expert staff can measure you for a bike and help guide you towards the appropriate range of bikes. We can further refine the fit by adjusting seats and handlebars or even swapping out parts to create the fit that is most comfortable for you personally.
What kind of bike gear do I need?
At bare minimum, every bicyclist should have a high-quality helmet for safety. Depending on what kind of riding you plan to do, you may also want to consider special shoes, apparel, and commute accessories like baskets and bags.
Do you buy and sell used bikes?
We often accept trade-ins on new bike sales, which can help you save some cash. This service is especially great for families who need to trade up to bigger bikes as their kids grow, or for hobbyists who are getting more serious about cycling and may want to upgrade to a higher-quality bike.
How long does it take to fix a flat?
Orange Cycle strives to make simple repairs and adjustments on the same day you bring your bike in for service. In the case of repair or replacement of flat tires, we can often complete the job before you’re done enjoying the nearby shops and restaurants around our bike store in downtown Orange.
What if I need a warranty repair on my new bike?
Warranty requirements vary by bike manufacturer. If we can’t provide the warranty repair for you, we can at least assist you by professionally packing your bike for shipment to the manufacturer.
