On average, how many clicks are put on a bike per year or per season? If I was looking to buy a used bike, what should I be expecting when it comes to kilometres?
just cause a bike has more mileage doesn't mean it hasn't been looked after, it can be the opposite.... the owner will have to keep care of it if they want to ride it all the time.... unlike some people who store the bikes and ignore them during the winter months.... but if the bike has been ridden year round all the time and looks in decent shape, then it probably is in decent shape (I hope, can't say the same for mine now hehehe )Genuine said:It's all good. Ya, I know it varies, but sometimes people ride their bikes a lot but don't take care of them that well. And in that case, if there is a lot of clicks on the bike, the bike should be a little bit cheaper right?
What I found from selling bikes is that it all boils down to the previous owner. When I went riding this monday, we followed two guys that just fooled around with their bike, wheelies every minute, stoppies and all. Battering a bike like that will definatly affect its lifespan. Even if the bike had low kms, I would still worry a bit. I guess, riding the bike and feeling for potential stutters and squeeks can determine its shape.Genuine said:On average, how many clicks are put on a bike per year or per season?
