There are many different types of bicycles and the 3 most popular types are
1. Mountain bikes
2. Road bikes
3. Hybrid bikes
Mountain bikes allow you to ride on and off road. They can you equipped with just front suspension or equipped with both front and rear suspension. The suspension provides comfort when riding. Mountain bikes are also equipped with off road tyres to give you good traction when riding off road.
Road bikes allow you to get the fastest speed but limit you to the roads. They are lightweight without suspension for fast acceleration. The riding position will ensure that you are more aerodynamic and reach higher speeds more easily, but less comfortable when compared to a mountain bike. Road bikes are equipped with slim road tyres to have minimal resistance.
Hybrid bikes sit in between mountain bikes and road bikes. Hybrid bikes offer the comfort of mountain bikes and the speed of road bikes. Hybrids are especially popular in our city and are also called pavement bikes.
