Bikemunk is a website dedicated to helping people understand bikes, especially in the context of making a purchase. The price of a bike can run all the way up into the five figure range, so it's vitally important to know what you're getting for your money.
We like to think we're different than other sites that review bikes, however. Rather than simply writing our opinions on various bikes, we instead combine our opinions with (1) the consultation of real experts and (2) data-driven research.
A bike might feel fast, or its handling might feel responsive, for example, but we want to know why it feels that way and what that means in context--in the context of its geometry, in the context of its components in the context of its price point, and in the context of the geometries and components of other bikes in its class. To that end, a major part of our process contextualizing bikes using data. This is why our articles are filled with both data-heavy graphs as well as quotes from other experts alongside our own analysis.
In our view, it's this blend of both the qualitative and quantitative research that gives riders a kind of information they can't find anywhere else.
