How to buy a good bike

My old bike has just been stolen I plan to buy a new one. What model do you suggest for a budget of $1000?

One that you can find in stock that is your size?

You didn't get us the type of bike you want, so I'll suggest a penny-farthing.

Sorry your bike got stolen.

Maybe start by describing the type of riding you do to narrow down which type of bike may be suitable for you. Do you have bike shops nearby or will you be buying online?

Does Amazon deliver to you next of the woods? If so, that opens up some doors

Google tells me that you have two bike shops in Tehran. Go to them and see what they can provide. God Bless and Keep you.

Really? penny-farthing?

I'm not a professional cyclist, but I've been riding for about 30 minutes every day for years.
I am looking for a durable, light and quality bike.

Something like this: (kidding)

I'd try the old fashion way. Walk into a store and see what they have. Evaluation of what you need. Test ride. Repeat at another bike store if possible

My advice on having recently purchased a brand new bike:
- Test ride a couple of models
- Inspect every inch of the bike and frame for any imperfections prior to purchase
- Go for quality/carbon, you won't regret it, it will be your pride and joy.
