Great rides start with a great bike, not with a car. I’m pretty sure those of you who’ve experienced the fun and excitement from riding a bike with their friends (or maybe your better half) get my drift. I’m really glad to notice that cycling is still so popular, and I’m even happier to see that vintage bikes are turning evergreen, although the popularity of huge motorcycles and hybrid cars is growing by leaps and bounds. Having a luxurious car may be someone’s cup of tea (I completely respect everyone’s dreams), but mine is having a vintage bike. Well, last year I finally got myself one, Audrey Hepburn style, and I swear each ride feels like drifting away to cloud nine.
If you’re still not convinced that vintage bikes are a great investment, I bet you’ll change your mind by the end of the following paragraphs.
Vintage Bicycles are Extremely Appealing
There is no doubt that these bikes look absolutely adorable. There is something about them that makes you want to grab it and ride it. Maybe it’s their power to speak of bygone eras that has convinced many eminent manufactures to offer a whole new kind of vintage style bike: their technology is rather new, but they are adorned with old-timer’s hue. This way, you can get the best of both worlds: sturdiness and an eyeful.
Vintage Bikes are an Affordable Investment
Besides from oozing with style, these bikes are also the most affordable option out there. If you want to go green and also save some green banknotes along the way, investing in a new bike is the best decision you can make. Instead of using your car to commute to work, you can rely on your bike as most-cost-effective, yet fast means of transport on this planet. Plus, they are extremely durable and will last for many years to come.
Vintage Bikes are Better Fit for Women
If you are the type of woman that is simply crazy about all vintage, but you also want maximum comfort during your ride, you can invest in a vintage style bike with a rather curved top tube and wear all of your old-fashioned dresses without having to worry about getting on/off your bike. Wearing high heels when riding a vintage bike (matched with some fashion vintage accessories like headband, bracelet, handbag and necklace) won’t look out of place due to the bike’s stylish appearance, which is another convincing reason why vintage lovers should invest in one.
Bikes in General, will Improve your Health
Last but not least, having a vintage bike and cycling on a regular basis can surely improve both your physical and mental health. Lots of surveys have been conducted on this topic, and it is safe to say that cycling is closely related to your health as it has the power to reduce and prevent many health problems.
