Mountain bikes may have suspension on the fork or frame, large tires, durable wheels, powerful brakes and lower gear ratios needed for steep grades.
Mountain bikes are versatile. You can ride a mountain bike to the grocery store, or you can take them on a journey through the woods. Primarily, they are designed for dirt trails. If you’re looking for a bike to run errands or go on occasional family outings, an entry-level mountain bike model will serve you well. If you’re planning on venturing into more serious trail riding, a higher-quality mountain bike will be a better investment.
