Your body comes into contact with your bike at 5 points: your feet, your hands and your posterior. Whilst gloves and shoes help to protect your hands and feet, what about your rear end and the rather sensitive area between your legs?

Are any of the following issues ones you have worried about or have experienced when trying to buy a bike.
- Are you sure you are buying the correct sized bike?
- Is it even the correct make and model?
- Do you get conflicting advice from visiting different bike shops?
It can get even more difficult with cyclists having more online shops and resources to buy from. This applies from new riders through to experienced racers and elite athletes.
