My bike is a mountain bike with a front and back suspension. Which I really like as it helps make the ride alot more relaxing . It means I do not have to always stand up I can just sit down. Before I had my bike, I had to walk every where so if you have been saving up and have got to walk every where then buy a mountain bike. I like them better thn BMX's as I do not like how far forword the handle bares are on BMX's and they do not come in different sizes as I am a bit bigger than every body else, if you are bigger than every boddy alse then you will no who I fell. But do not worry just get a mounting bike. dont forget to give me a rating, i will ... Read the complete review

I've just read Ken's words of wisdom on the pros and cons of race bikes. He wonders how to get good braking performance from a road bike. First and foremost - check the rims! Make sure the wheels have alloy rims (brakes on steel rims won't work in the rain.) If the wheels are running true and the rims are in good condition road brakes can be set up with very little gap between the rim and the blocks (leave a bit more at the back as the wheel will distort v. slightly when you accelerate) Using a decent set of modern dual pivot road brakes (I have been using Shimmano 105's for years now.) you should be able to get braking power up to the point ...

I still have my old racer, although I currently use my mountain bike more. Racers used to be the "big thing" then came BMX, now its Mountain bikes. You can still buy racers, and you will find that a lot of serious riders still use them, they are the bike of choice for competition speed races (and the Tour De France). A standard, fairly cheap racer should last you a very long time, they are a lot tougher than their thin frames look, but you will probably find the wheels buckle easily. Racers are capable of greater road speeds (in general) than mountain bikes, but off-road they dont fair very well, due to ... Read the complete review

Recently Saab and Gary Fisher extended me a very unique invitation. On Saturday, May 20, 2000, they were holding an event called <I>The Gary Fisher/Saab Test Drive</I>. It was held at Green Mountain Park near Morrison, Colorado. Green Mountain Park is one of the Denver area’s nicer mountain bike trails. It is also located two miles north of Bandemere Speedway. I’m sure it was no accident that Gary Fisher and Saab picked this location for their test drive. I suppose I was extended the invitation because I am a registered owner of a Gary Fisher Big Sur mountain bike. I love my bike, and wrote a detailed review on it back on February ...

what type of bike should you use? well we have all seen people cycling around the town on a mountain bike, but wait, where's the mountains? seriously though mountain bike were designed for mountains, for going round town you should realling be using a racer, it is designed for roads, the thin tyers reduce friction which makes cycling eaiser. now you don't have to go buy the best bike you can, that will cost you a few grand, but you can pick up some decent ones very cheaply. should you have your feet locked in though, it's not nesseary thats for the pro's to stop there feet falling out at 30 mph which can hurt, trust me, but for going at 10 - 15 mph you ...
