I've literally scoured every bike shop in my city, and I can't find anything good other than pearl izumi, which are all sold out everywhere. what gives? mostly there aren't any mtb-specific ones and you have to settle for road ones will get all torn up, or the ones you try on won't fit over boa dials. wtf

MTB to gravel bike conversion Łukasz Tkacz Uncategorized 17 November 202017 November 2020 Finally, I decided to write about my strange experiment – convert MTB bike to gravel. I rode MTB and liked that few years ago, but after a crash during one of the competitions, I completely lost my enthusiasm to that kind of bikes.

Hi ! I've been wanting to get a MTB (most probably a hardtail for easy/medium trails in the very flat landscape of Belgium) and I've been wondering what kind of gear, clothing or tools I'll need. I already have the usual stuff for my road bike (general tools, lubes, cleaning products, ...) but I'm sure there are some that I don't have and will be useful. First that comes to mind are MTB clipless shoes and maybe more appropriate helmet. Maybe something to care for the fork/suspension ? What else would I definitely need when MTBing ?

This is my first post here on reddit. Been wanting to get into MTB-ing. I've got this old bike that I've had for probably 7+ years. Wanted to see if there was any information out there on this guy, aaaaaand I couldn't find anything at all from just googling. I have a feeling this old thing is absolute garbage, but rn I do not have the money to buy a better bike. If anyone maybe has any information on this old thing, I'd be more than happy to take it. Also, for the future when I get the cash, what are the best bikes I could buy for cheap?

First off, I love riding my bikes, and I'm about as far as you can get from anti-cyclist. I don't do much technical off-road stuff myself but have lots of respect for people who do; maybe one day I'll join your ranks. But a few days ago I was in Big Bend National Park and scrambling/bouldering through [Ernst Tinaja](https://www.hikingproject.com/gem/413/ernst-tinaja), and [these guys on full suspension downhill bikes](https://imgur.com/nynwDto) blew past the trailhead sign that said "no bikes," show up in the tinaja, and start discussing the line they wanted to take down the side. AFAIK they didn't actually do it, maybe because there were other people there sitting on the rocks and picnicking. The sides of the tinaja are made of wafer thin stripy sandstone/limestone with embedded fossils, and you can see the erosion just from foot traffic. I find it appalling that some people see these places as just an interesting technical riding challenge, without regard for the destruction they might cause and loss of enjoyment to others. It's not like single track in the woods where a good rain will smooth over the trail; these formations were carved out over hundreds of years and can't grow back. I can’t understand the mindset, can somebody explain it to me? I mean, is this part of the independent/countercultural skate/bike thing? (And also, AITA?)

Hello there, Yesterday I bought my first non-MTB bike, Mosso monza cyclocross, coming from MTB I’m finding it a little bit difficult to get used to the new configuration :) - My posture while seated on bike and the need to keep my arms fully expanded to reach gear and brake lever. - What accessories are suitable to add:(bell, phone holder, etc.) - Is it possible to ride hands-off sometimes (I used to in MTB) - Would it be a good idea to change saddle (the current one feels extremely rigid). - Is it better to lower front gear or rear gear for climbs? And what is the best gear configuration for straight roads? Thanks

Hello guys, I study and work in the field of exercise Science and Physiology, and race MTB. I’m coming off an injury and want to take my training and endurance to the next level, and start road riding seriously. I will eventually race in Crits after I lose the weight post I gained being out and depressed for the last year. I’m very familiar with MTB geo and numbers, however, road is new to me. I’ve been doing training rides and what not with my coach on an older TCX I put road tires on, but i want more. I want a true road bike. So basically I’ve picked a few frames (alloy for cost and strength as I’m leaning out but an very rough when out of the saddle sprinting). However, Carbon is not out of the picture at all. I’ve even looked at a few carbon options. I’ll most likely buy a complete bike or frame second hand as the prices components from Merlin cycles or chain reaction make it seem a little more feasible than buying a ready to go full on Ultegra or Dura Ace build from the factory. Here is what I’ve looked at so far: Older CAAD10 (I guess touted as the every man blue collar favorite) Newer TCR frame Allez Sprint CAAD12 Specialized Tarmac My concern with carbon is racing crit and going down hard. I’ve seen a few guys get rough, crash, and crack their carbon crit frames. Plus as of right now weight is not a concern. The only concern will be muscling through the longer endurance rides of 3.5-5 hours for training. I live in Western NC so I ride mountains. Also, I’ll be training with chest strap, crank power meter, and headunit. Any input on these frames is very welcome and any input on other frames is welcomed as well! I’d like to stay sub $950 USD on a frame (second hand preferred). Have no problem with pressfit.

I live in a place where biking isn't common. I don't really have any acquaintance to talk to about this. I have the opportunity to ride a bike for about 40-60 minutes a day and I want to use it. I have a basic (single speed ) road bike from 8 years ago. The roads I tread aren't the flattest and due to the incline, I struggle ( and fail) to complete the ride. I went looking for a hybrid or an MTB ( a very inexpensive one due to budget and relocation challenges) and the store owner suggested that I get my road bike fixed rather than buy an MTB or a hybrid. He said the road bike was the easiest way to climb the incline ( road). Obviously , fixing my old bike and getting some gears put on it would be a less expensive option for me than to buy a new bike. My question is what do I do ? All my rides are going to be on a road but the inclines cause me such pain it's very hard. Also I'm not the fittest of people and am not a pro cyclist. Thanks in advance. _____ Here's a potato (_____) Edit: turns out my old road bike can't get any gears fixed in my city. Might have to get a hardtail 27.5 " bike. Hope that's good

Hello there, guys. Last summer I had been cycling on my old MTB (3 rings, 8 cogs). I usually covered about 20 miles per day. Started learning the controversial backwards 7 to 3 o’clock pulling for full torque and was quite satisfied for I managed to squeeze 31 mph on flat surface out of my bike. I had considered switching to some of the more fleety options and tried learning stuff about bikes. But I haven’t got too far with that. As for now I’ve already discarded the idea of getting a road bike since I’m going for long distance(40-60 mile) rides. But I really do want to break my 31 mph barrier and hit 40. What I’m looking for is something like a reliable but not too heavy MTB body that won’t fall apart at bumps and will be stable enough so it won’t be too sketchy and scary at road pulls. And I want to combine that with a road bike transmission with them big rings for higher top speed before spinning out. Is that a good idea to combine parts from different bike types in the first place? How well are the road bike rings going to work with backwards pulling or whatever cyclists call it? And what kind of fork will suit that hybrid build better?

I’ve had my 26” mtb for about 15 years now and I guess it’s time to give her some maintenance and perhaps an upgrade. I’ve always loved the looks of the bike, it’s like a naked bike, with bare aluminum, no logo and black parts. Must admit I’ve used it on the road (with narrow slick tires) more than offroad. I have a road bike now and might as well hit the tracks with the mtb. However, to be honest, it’s probably a bit too small for me, resulting in a very forward tilted position. Especially on longer rides, it’s not really comfortable. I’ve been trying different stems and all. But now she’ll get a make-over anyway, I was wondering whether it’s possible to get a different, longer fork, to change the geometry of the bike. The current fork is a pretty basic Chili Works with some suspension. Do 26” forks come in different lengths? Would this work?

I have a riser bar which I cut too short (now less tham 500mm i think). Might get a newer riser bar with greater sweep around 10 to 20 degrees. Please dont suggest jones loop bars because their 45° degree sweep is not for me. Thanks guys! Im thinking multiple hand position handlebars like drop bars but I dont know whats good for mtb's. I mainly use my bike in rough roads but I dont do any slightest trail.

Hi bois and girls, Newbie here, I want to join the bike community, and by buy a new MTB (begginer lvl) and I´m stuck while doing my research. I have different options, in the same price range, but they are all too similar so I´m a bit lost in which to choose. ​ I have these options: 450 - 500 EUR CUBE AIM PRO COLUER PRAGMA 294 TREK MARLIN 5 ORBEA MX50 SCOTT ASPECT 960 Or I can add 100 EUR, and step up to the range of 500 EUR - 600 EUR: CUBE AIM EX MEGAMO NATURAL 40 ORBEA MX40 SCOTT ASPECT 950 TREK MARLIN 6 I saw good opinions about Marlin, and Cube. But nonetheless I´m not sure which is better. Maybe you could help me to select my future bike. ​ Thx a lot.

I saw multiple posts with similar topics so I would like to share my experience. Firstly I have to say that I'm not a professional cyclist, a bit overweight, and finally got back into bicycle riding since I was a kid. Decided to buy my first bike as an adult, and of course, I went for an MTB (probably as the only thing I rode as a kid). Riding for a month while using Strava to check my progress and efforts made me think about my bike choice and got a bit demotivated. My average wattage for a 40km ride is 150 - 200W but my speed is not even near people riding the same distance and having \~120 - 150W output. I must say that changing tires, from the default that comes with Giant ATX 3, Gravel 27.5 x 2.1, 40PSI to a Schwalbe Kojak 27.5 x 1.35, 90PSI, is the best decision that I made so far. They fitted the same 2.1 rims, without any issue so I had to change only a tire and inner tube. Results are, again, as a beginner rider on the same roads and same wind speed: \- With the same power, I got 5 - 7km/h \- Max speed from 32 to 40km/h (mostly in downhill segments) \- Rides became far smoother without getting exhausted as before. \- Using 2 and sometimes 3 higher gears on the same road segments \- Uphill become easier to go even with higher gears If you are riding on roads and thinking about changing from gravel to road tires, definitively go for it. You will be impressed by the results. As I am still not sure that I want to spend \~2k for a road bike, I would definitively check which updates might improve a ride or my speed. So far, I planned to go for a dropped handlebars and bigger rims but upgrades are a bit costly in Dubai, so aerodynamic might wait a bit. ​ Edit: Spelling

Hi there. I am looking into a On One Bootzipper MTB but planet x don't have recommendations concerning size. I am 181cm tall with length of my inner legs of 84cm. Three questions: a) which size would I need if I wanted the bike "Stock", with a flatbar as it is shown? M or L? b) What size of the FRAME would I need if I wanted to build up the bike myself with DROP Bars? They sell the frameset separately so that could be an option. c) in the latter Case: would 700c wheels fit? I have a spare set of Mavic Aksium wheels I could use. Any hints will be appreciated!

Hello r/bicycling! Somebody dumped this vintage Yeti MTB on the sidewalk where it sat for a week before my dad picked it up. I know very little about the brand and almost listed this for $20 on FB, until I realized it was probably worth quite a bit more. I feel silly because I consider myself to be a bike enthusiast. Does anyone here have any further insight on the year or value of this bike? I listed an album link below the photo attached. Would love to hear any thoughts or have a conversation. https://i.redd.it/03446ukrsjf31.jpg **Photos:** [**https://imgur.com/a/jIOqgrg**](https://imgur.com/a/jIOqgrg)

Hey r/bicycling, I am looking for a cheap MTB. My goals are casual riding across the city, forests, fields and villages nearby. Hence, cruisers, city and road bikes are not my options. Please, keep in mind that since I live in Ukraine I don't have all the options available in North America. The popular worldwide brands available here are Trek, Cannondale, Bergamont, Giant, Cube, Ghost, Specialized and Scott. My best option at the moment is **Trek Marlin 5 2019** ([https://www.evanscycles.com/trek-marlin-5-2019-mountain-bike-EV340595](https://www.evanscycles.com/trek-marlin-5-2019-mountain-bike-EV340595)), the second one is **Cannondale Catalyst 2 2019** ([https://www.cannondale.com/USA/bike/Productdetail?Id=63ee38b5-13f5-43e9-a73c-fa4b1f3b9d27](https://www.cannondale.com/USA/bike/Productdetail?Id=63ee38b5-13f5-43e9-a73c-fa4b1f3b9d27)). Should I pick on these ones (if yes, which one and why) or is there anything better in the same price range? Here are other random options in +/- the same price range: **Bergamont Revox 3 2019** ([https://www.bergamont.com/global/en/product/bergamont-revox-3-black?article=270305159](https://www.bergamont.com/global/en/product/bergamont-revox-3-black?article=270305159)) **Merida BIG.NINE 20-D** ([https://www.merida-bikes.com/en/bike/143-143/bignine-20-d](https://www.merida-bikes.com/en/bike/143-143/bignine-20-d)) **Giant Talon 4 GI 2019** ([https://www.giant-bicycles.com/int/talon-29-4--gi--2019](https://www.giant-bicycles.com/int/talon-29-4--gi--2019)) **Fuji Nevada 19 2016** ([https://archive.fujibikes.com/2016/Fuji/nevada-29-193](https://archive.fujibikes.com/2016/Fuji/nevada-29-193)) **Apollo Xpert 20 2019** ([https://www.apollobikes.com/bikes/mountain/xpert-20/detail](https://www.apollobikes.com/bikes/mountain/xpert-20/detail))

I bought my first road bike few months ago and I'm thinking about buying some clipless pedals to replace my toe-cage pedals. However, I'm not sure which type of shoe will be the best suited for me. I usually ride 30-70km (slowly increasing the distance). I'm training for my first sprint triathlon. I don't usually stop and walk around, but I sometime take mudy roads and need to get off my bike to walk a bit. I like the versatility of mountain bike shoes and the option to walk confortably even if I'm not planning to walk alot. My head says MTB shoes but my heart says road shoes. Is there a significant difference in performance between the two types? What about confort?

So, I met last year a 70 years old guy living in my neighborhood. He was riding his mountain bike and we talked a little together. At this time I had no idea what Moots was. He explained me that the bike was bought by his son when he went to Colorado and after two years he gave the bike to his dad. It's a 1998 or 1999 Moots mtb (hardtail and hard fork) but everything except the frame seems to be quite new (full sram xo, single crankset, canyon seatpost...). I don't know why a 70 years old guy upgraded his bike so much. Anyway I told him as a joke that if one day he wants to sell it he has to tell me first. I met the guy every now and then but we newer talked again about the bike. But he went to me last week and said he is considering to sell the bike to buy a ebike. I know Moots bikes are quite expensive and in my area they are pretty rare. Actually I've never seen other one here... I wonder what a bike like that is worth now. It's a 20 years old bike and seems to be in good condition. What do you guys think ? (Sorry for the broken English)
