The size of a bicycle is indicated by both the frame and the diameter of the wheels, it is also important to take into account the leeway that allows us to raise and lower the saddle, generally the recommended heights for each model of bicycle are published in the product sheet.
The wheels of the touring bicycles usually have 2 sizes, 26" and 28", we recommend for people under 1.65 meters tall bicycles with 26-inch wheels, but it is important, as we have indicated, to pay attention to the size of the frame
Touring bicycle frames are measured from the center of the bottom bracket (the axis of the pedals) to the seat clamp (where the seat post or seat tube is fixed). This measurement can give us an idea of the size of the frame, but it is important to take into account the geometry of the frame as well.
The frame of the bicycle is the steel structure that supports the rest of the components and the geometry of the same, indicates the style of driving, it can have a traditional Dutch bicycle shape, large and with a slight tilt back will allow us to go with an upright driving or a classic Italian bicycle geometry smaller and more manageable but for a very comfortable driving without going so straight back.
To choose a good touring bike is very important to consider all the components, since the cheap bikes are usually assembled with very basic parts that for a more intensive use, can give us problems, let's see some of the most important components for the proper long-term operation of the bike:
The frame, there are touring bicycles with steel frame or aluminum frame, a steel frame is the best long-term choice for an urban touring bicycle, steel is flexible, can be repaired and withstands the passage of time very well, the classic aluminum bicycles are lighter, but have less life, and less flexibility so they are suitable for mountain bikes, but not so much for touring bicycles.
The wheels, are composed of the rims in this case better aluminum, can be single-walled or double-walled, which better withstand the impact of blows and remain centered more easily, there are also steel rims, brighter, durable and robust, but too heavy, other aspects are the spokes, highly recommended stainless steel spokes that will prevent rust in the same which is very common, another important thing are the hubs or axles of the wheels, which can be steel or aluminum, and sealed, better, the latter
single speed or 1 speed ?
If you are buying a city bike and your city does not have any hills, the simpler the better, but if you are buying a city bike for more intensive use and you live in a city like Madrid, you will need a bike with gears that allow you to use a softer speed to face the hills comfortably
The dUTCH BIKES the gears are usually equipped with a single speed, but it is also very common to see retro bikes in Northern Europe with gears built into the hub (such as the Shimano Nexus3). The gears on the rear wheel axle are more expensive, but have 3 main advantages, they do not require any maintenance, you can change gears when stationary and are much more resistant to shocks
The usual changes in the classic bikes are external with 6 or 7 speeds in the rear derailleur and with a single chainring, for urban use it is not necessary to have more gears
Another aspect to take into account when buying a classic touring bike are the accessories included, such as the kickstand, the chain guard, the luggage rack or basket rack, the lights, etc. If you are looking for a classic style touring bike, an important detail is the traditional style spring saddle or the leather grips or grips.
