I’m in the market for a new mountain bike and see good ones starting at $1000. However, I found a “boutique” mountain bike by a company called Intense and the bike was much nicer than the others. However, it was $3600. Am I nuts to spend that much for a bicycle?
I want to get a helmet for my bike, so I was wondering what I should get. I ride my Globe mountain bike down the channel to the ocean right now, but I want a cool helmet for when I ride in Yosemite in the summer. I was looking at a few of the Pro-Tec models, and I fancy the Cyphon and B2 model looks, if it helps. Thanks for reading!
Just an aside, what is considered a lot for a bicycle helmet?
Im 17 years old and i just got a mountain bike yesterday and also a speed and mileage odometer. I like to bike everyday that its nice. I dont ride professionally just for fun. From the time I left my house at 4:30pm to when i got home at 2am, i rode 65 miles, including breaks. Is that a good amount? I didnt feel tired at all when i finished, just thirsty. What is your opinoin?
How can i convince my mother to let my dad and i go mountain biking? We moved here to be able to do just that!?
I don’t know why but it seems as though my mom wont let me or my dad go mountain biking just 20 miles away. I mean…we moved here from Mississippi so we could experience the outdoors….yeah right! My dad is jobless and he cant find one due to lack of jobs open….he has a bunch of free time (other than time to search for jobs) to take me yet we still cant go. Dont get me wrong, i have a better relationship with my mother but this seems like one of the things she wont let us do. Why does she want us huddled up in a house all day? I want to go out and stop getting overweight…….get some fresh air. I sound like some lame retard but i am getting claustrophobic in a house with 4000 square feet!
I’m moving to Portland, OR and I was wondering if a mountain bike was a good choice to ride around town for commuting. I know the tires may not be good for the road but I have another question considering that.
Can I replace the mountain tires for urban street tires? If they had the same radius could I buy a pair from a sporting good store?
Thanks and have a good day.
I feel like bike dealers are like used car lots and really trying to rip me off. If I buy online I won’t be able to test ride it before I buy. Is there a better way to buy a new mountain bike that I don’t know of?
Im looking at buying a mountain bike to just ride around town and occasionally maybe go trailing with it. I dont want to spend more than like $400 b/c it will be rode in town more than on trails. Any suggestions of makes that i should buy or specific feature to keep in mind when buying a bike b/c i dont know much about what to look for in a bike and need help in that area.
I was mountain biking and thought I could go over a 3 feet log. I’ve done it before but this one had thin slime growing on it and I crashed full speed and landed on right side of my head. I thought I had bashed my face in at first but only injuries I had was a cracked right sinus,2 broken ribs, and multitude of scrapes and lacerations.
But when I took my helmet off it was cracked right down the middle!
Has this happened to anyone else?
It was a blast!! I was so proud I showed my helmet to everyone I know.
I want to do it again but don’t want to get killed or paralyzed. Am I crazy that it made me feel great and more alive?
