Jeff Balton

Jeff Balton from Bicycle GuiderHello there! My name is Jeff. I only ride because I really love it. I used to mainly race, but now I’ve given that up to just teach riders how to become better at competing.

You can read about me on the right side of the screen, scrolling down. I want everyone to find out that you really don’t have to spend a lot on bikes and even cheaper bikes can be great and true friends to you.

I’ve been ex-pro rider but enjoy cycling even more now 🙂

For Bike Manufacturers

Bicycle Guider is an excellent outlet to promote awareness of cycling products, from accessories to bikes. We review every type of bike, and we don’t focus on any aspect of cycling in particular. At present, we are focusing on road, hybrid, and mountain bikes.

Bicycle Guider aims to produce in-depth reviews, and we strive to supply current and accurate info to all inquiries generating from our target viewership. We have our own non-pushy style, opting instead to empower the consumer with info which guides their own decision making.

Thanks to carefully selected and superior content,

Bicycle Guider’s web site traffic is growing at a healthy rate. In 2016 we had around 105,000 unique visitors. In 2017, we’ve had around 402,000! In, 2018, we had 800,000!

So, yes, our viewership is rapidly growing – along with our conversion rates!

So, is Bicycle Guider a good venue to promote your product?

Bicycle Guider consists of a lean, mean team of writers, proofreaders, a web developer, photographer, videographer and a designer. To make good bike reviews a reality, it’s imperative to begin with great bikes, and also to have a team that knows how to showcase them to a targeted audience.

A few samples: Diamondback Haanjo 3 or State Bicycle Co – Wulf or Thousand Helmet

Please keep in mind:

  • Buying a review is unethical and against our core beliefs. You can’t do it!
  • We are honest and positive, but if the review didn’t present your product in the light you’d hoped, we can promptly remove it
  • Ideally, you’re part of an affiliate network – but if not, that’s okay too

What does it mean, that I spend countless hours weekly investigating and testing, analyzing, contacting and writing reviews. It really does takes me much of my time. That money I get, I forward to a better site (Web hosting, good writers to check my texts etc).

Price Scale From $ to $$$$+

We all know that prices vary everywhere and on Amazon too. Therefore I can’t point out exact prices (if I have somewhere, let me know!) I thought out that I want to give you an overview and therefore I work out the scale from $ to $$$$+. What does it mean? Well, being still subjective, it can give you a better overview.

What does the price scale tell you?

$ – Cheap – Somewhere around $100 – $300
$$ – Fairly cheap – Somewhere around $301 – $450
$$$ – Moderate – Prices around $450 – $1,000
$$$$ – Fairly Moderate –  Prices around $1,001 – $2,500
$$$$+ – Expensive – $2,501 +

However, those are still subjective but can give you the better overview!
