KNOW YOUR MOUNTAIN BIKE TYPES
There are several types of mountain bikes available to those looking to get their thrills. The biggest differences in these types of bikes are the suspension capabilities which absorb shocks and handle rough terrain. From hardtails for steady days out on calm trails to downhill dedicated bikes designed to rip down mountains, we've got it all.
A hardtail bike is categorized by its use of only front suspension. This means the front of the bike absorbs shocks through the suspension on its forks however the rear of the bike remains rigid due to lack of suspension. A hardtail bike is perfect for gentle trails, miles on the road, flat tracks and gravel roads. A hardtail is perfect for those who'd like a dynamic bike which can handle rough terrain but also remains quick and agile.
