Mountain Bikes

White Jamis mountain bike

Mountain bikes are used for riding off-road trails over rough terrain. They feature strong heavy-duty frames, 26 inch wheels with fat knobby tires for traction, and powerful brakes. Almost all mountain bikes have suspension forks, and many feature rear suspension as well. They typically have low gearing for powering up hills and over obstacles. These bikes are not well suited to street riding, as they are rather heavy when compared to a hybrid or road bike, and the 26 inch wheels and tires are inefficient on pavement.
