"Track"??? Do you mean "trail", as in REAL off-road rocks-n-roots singletrack?

Ah, the 'compromise' bike dilemma. This is NOT a mountain bike frame nor are the wheels designed for hard hits. But you could try to make it work for light-duty trails.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_wheel

1. They make all kinds of rubber for 29ers which use the same rim size. Search for 29er tires.

The frame and fork may limit how large a tire will have clearance. Being totally stiff (unsuspended) the off-road ride would be rough by today's MTB standards. Think: loose fillings and blurred vision, plus a lot of standing to survive the ride. That takes energy. But then there are those who have intentionally bought 'niners without suspension for some reason.

A REAL mountain bike would be a better choice, just as a REAL road bike might be for that activity if sustained speed is ever a going to be a goal.

2. Avid's make good brakes AND levers. Which end is the problem, I wonder. Pads also play a major part in stopping power.

Can you please provide me a list of all major bike types?


I have listed the most famous bike types: BMX Bicycle

Bicycle Moto Cross (BMX) bicycles are designed for rough off road riding and are typically single speed. People also use them for stunt riding, and you may see some fitted with stunt pegs.

Mountain Bike (MTB)

A mountain bike is designed for trail riding and downhill riding. It can also be ridden on the road. They come in many shapes and forms. Some have no suspension, whilst others have front and rear suspension. A mountain bike without rear suspension is usually called a hard tail bike.

Most MTBs use 26 inch wheels which is the standard. This size wheel is fairly strong, especially when coupled with the large off road tyres that are fitted to MTBs.

An MTB is suited for off road riding and will handle rough terrain quite easy. It is very stable on rough terrain, but is a lot slower to ride on the road when compared to a road bike. It is also suitably geared for climbing hills.

Hybrid Bicycle

Another style of bike that has a similar riding position to a mountain bike, but better road speed is a Hybrid bicycle. Hybrids are a cross between a mountain bike and a road bike. They have an upright comfortable position, road tyres, and are usually a lot lighter than a mountain bike.

Hybrid bicycles are typically used for commuting.

Touring Bicycle

A touring bicycle is designed for loaded cycle touring and has the capability to be fitted with mudguards, racks, panniers and extra water cages. They are typically fitted with wider road type tyres that are suitable for gravel riding also.

They usually come with a stronger frame and longer chainstays so that the back of your feet don't hit the rear panniers. They are usually fitted with a relaxed drop bar style handlebar. The geometry of the frame is also different and allows for much more easier steering and handling when loaded.

Expedition Bicycle

As above for touring, but usually fitted with Trekking bars and MTB gear and is designed for extreme off road conditions.

Randonneur or 'All Rounder'

A rare beast in Australia where we like to specialise. 'Randonneur' is a French term, coined to describe a bike that can do a bit of everything - you can ride with the pack or take a doddle with the kids, you can ride light or carry a load, you'd use it to visit Gran on Sunday then pick up some groceries on the way home. They are the 'family station wagon' of cycling. However, like any Jack of All Trades, they do everything well but the specialists do it better. They can carry a load but not like a heavy tourer. They are fast but heavier than a racer and with more comfortable geometry. They have wider wheels and tyres to ride on rough roads but wont handle true off road work.

Typically, they look like any other racing or flat bar road bike ... until you look at the details. Most randonneurs start life as a touring bike or hybrid, and are then modified by the owner over time to reflect how they are used.

Are you just trail riding, or do you get into any technical stuff? I'm 5'10" with a 32" inseam, and ride a 19" Cannondale. I've got just enough clearance for my friends, but my margin of error is small. You can lower the seat, but you can't raise your ballz. Also, make sure that the cockpit (I see a theme developing) isn't too long for you. You don't want to be in a position where reaching for the bars is uncomfortable. A shorter stem is no substitute for good fit.

Hi there, i was wondering how good the quality is when it comes down to the important factors of the Titan Fusion 26" Men's Dual-Suspension All-Terrain Bicycle, i am unsure if its worth getting, I want a...


If you want to buy a NEW dual-suspension mountain bike that is worth buying, be prepared to spend at least $700 dollars. A GOOD dual-sus bike will run upwards of $1500 and a very nice one will be over $2000. Anything new for under $500 is generally rubbish and money down the drain. The components will be bad, the manufacturing will be bad, the frame will be bad and it will no doubt be problematic if ridden more than occasionally on the street only. i might suggest looking at bike forums or craigslist for a used bike made by one of the reputable manufacturers like Giant, Trek, Specialized, Cannondale or the like. Bargain bikes are not a bargain at all, but money down the drain.

i hope this helps,
matthew
