Featuring expert reviews of more than 125 bikes in virtually every category - road, trail, commuter and triathlon - Bicycling's Buyer's Guide is a must-have resource for anyone buying a new bike, helping cyclists of all levels find their ideal bike at the right price, in preparation for spring cycling weather.

To further simplify the buying process, the Buyer's Guide also offers tips for finding bargains and testing bikes, and a breakdown of the most important key terms to know when shopping.

"Bicycling's Buyer's Guide is the perfect place to start searching for your next bike, helping cyclists cut through the clutter to save time, money and find a bike that is truly rewarding," said Peter Flax, Bicycling editor-in-chief. "To assemble the Buyer's Guide, Bicycling editors spent months and countless hours testing new bikes and gear, using our collective judgment to present readers with the best options to enjoy the sport they love. It's an issue to be thumbed through and utilized all year long."

For new cyclists looking to break into the sport, Bicycling also recently released The Big Book of Bicycling (Rodale, $21.99), a guidebook that covers everything a cyclist needs to know, including bikes and gear, training and nutrition, racing, bike commuting, fixing your bike, weight-loss and gearing up for your first triathlon. When paired with the Buyer's Guide, the two resources offer new cyclists a comprehensive guide to getting their first bike and getting started riding, whether it's for racing, fitness or commuting.

Cycling continues to be one of the largest lifestyle sports in America, and urban cycling in particular is experiencing significant growth; according to the League of American Cyclists, bike commuting grew by an average of 35 percent in the 70 largest US cities from 2005 to 2009. In the midst of this trend and on the heels of a long and difficult winter, Bicycling's Buyers Guide comes just in time for the spring season and peak bike shopping time.
