Hello guys! I need some help because I love riding bikes, but I'm awful at the specs and parts part. I typically ride a Specialized single speed roadie, but have been looking for a hardtail MTB because I work at an area where I can ride trails for free. The person who built my roadie suggested this bike: [https://www.crosslakesales.com/collections/mountain/products/fuji-addy-comp-1-3d-15-womens-26-hardtail-mtb-bike-shimano-3-x-9s-pink-new](https://www.crosslakesales.com/collections/mountain/products/fuji-addy-comp-1-3d-15-womens-26-hardtail-mtb-bike-shimano-3-x-9s-pink-new) I've heard people say drivetrains on Fuji bikes aren't so good, but Fuji frames are good, but I'm not sure whether this bike applies to that or not. The other options I had in mind were the Trek Skye S or SL/Trek Marlin 5 (depending on if I get woman specific, they're the same bike) that I can get used from $359 to $439 from a bike/rental shop. From that same shop, I can get the Trek Cali S for about $619, but my budget is mostly limited to $500. Here's the link to the shop's sale as there are some other MTBs I don't really know about: [https://www.villagebikeandski.com/sale/#HARDTAIL MOUNTAIN](https://www.villagebikeandski.com/sale/#HARDTAIL MOUNTAIN) I've ridden the Cali S and I really liked how smooth it was, but being 5'1", the 29 inch wheels forced me to lower my seat making cranking a lot less efficient. What do you guys think? I could use any sort of help because I don't want to buy a garbage bike, but my budget is small at $500 and there's not much wiggle room being a student. Do you think I should just hold off until next spring 2018 or buy one of these bikes? Thanks again!

Hey guys! These last days, I saw a lot of people doing crazy stunts with their MTB in snow. Were these videos showing the true potential of a MTB or it was some BS ads? Thanks. (Im just a pure road cyclist and I don’t know shit about MTBs)

I've posted before about foot numbness when cycling with SPD cleats (MTB-style). ​ I've tried everything to fix it - 3 different pairs of shoes, changing cleat angles, lowering the saddle, using gel in-soles, moving the cleats as far back as possible. It's helped a bit, but the numbness still happens around 15-20mins into a ride. I now suspect it's the small contact area between the shoe and pedal causing pressure at the ball of the foot. My question is: do road cleats (SPD-SL) have a bigger contact area between shoe and pedal?

I'm contemplating getting a turbo trainer so that I can ride indoors using zwift. I don't want to spend a great deal as I'm just starting out and want to give it a try. The problem is that I've got a 29er MTB and the trainer that I'm looking at says that it's only compatible with a 29er that's using a road or trainer tyre. So my plan is to get a cheap wheel with a trainer tyre on it so that I can swap the wheels when required. However, I have no idea what spec/size etc of wheel that I require and will be compatible with the trainer. Could you please advise on a compatible and cheap wheel? My bike: https://www.merida-bikes.com/en_int/bikes/hardtails/29-hardtails/2016/big-nine-100-4336.html The trainer: https://tacx.com/product/flow-smart/ The trainer tyre (MTB29): https://tacx.com/product/trainer-tyre/ Thanks!

I currently have a fixed gear. I've had it a year and I want to venture off to another style of riding. Considering I live in Central Fl, should I get a mountain bike or a road bike? There are a handful of places that are built for mtbs that I can take it to ride, but I'd have to travel 30 mins to 2 hours by car. Obviously I can ride the road bike anywhere. Any input will be helpful, thanks!

i am designing a full suspension bike (mostly just drawing it up for fun, miiiiiiiiiight make it if i get accsess to cnc machines some time during august, not sure about the geometry and also this mike is designed around long travel suspension and 27,5" tyres wich is why it looks the way it does. please let me know if you would change anything and in that case what you would change and why. feedback greatly apreciated! ps: in the event that i get the oportunity to make this frame, the rear suspension cradle/arm will be two halves milled from aluminum plate that are welded together with spacer pieces made from aluminium stock and the frame will be changed so its easier to make from aluminium pipe, frame will keep its outline but the inside will be changed to acomodate pipe diameters and such.

I'm a mountain biker at heart, but I'm looking for a road bike for training, especially when trails are too wet to ride. Because of this, I expect to be riding the new bike on wet roads 75% of the time. The question is how bad are rim brakes in the wet? I know wet and grime is the biggest reason all modern MTBs have disks but I have no personal experience with rim breaks apart from the bikes I rode as a kid. I live near the mountains in Tennessee so theres lots of hills and big descents. Should rim breaks be a dealbreaker?

I was recently informed that my Hybrid bike (a Giant ARX 2) won't be particularly suited for road riding, since MTBs and Hybrids are 'geared far lower' than road bikes, further limiting their top speed. Of course, I can only afford one bike, so I'm going to do it anyway, but I wanted to ask about it. I have an 8-speed 11-34 rear casette, and most road casettes I see have an 11-tooth small cog, sometimes 10, so it's quite similar. Is an MTB/Hybrid 11 smaller than a Road 11? As for the crankset, it's a 3-speed 28-38-48- not too far from the 34-50/36-52s I see on road cranks. Or is a MTB/Hybrid 48 smaller than a Road 48? It already seems geared higher than my Schwinn Woodlands, which was a 7-speed, although I never learned the specs

I have a 40 cassette on my road bike and a 30 ring in the front. The shimano ultegra rear derailleur isn't holding the chain tension on the 30-11/13/15 cogs. ie The chain slips off the 30 chainring when on the lower cogs The 30 ring came with the bike, the 40 cassette I added later. So will a shimano deore direct mount rear derailleur hold the tension better than the ultegra and will it fit on my frame? Thanks whoever answers

Hey Everyone, So for my road bike I use Chester MTB pedals and Van's shoes, and of course the same shoes with my MTB Hardtail for riding. I like the grip the Van's provide with the pins in the pedals, but they're just not stiff enough. My main question is to see if there is a shoe that is more like a sneaker that can connect super tight with an MTB pedal the way Van's do, but are also super stiff. I know most MTB riders use 5.10 Freerider's, but I was hoping there was something cheaper I could try instead of $100+ just to see how I like them. Someone told me about Chrome Kursk shoes, I could just leave the SPD cover on there, I'm assuming, and ride that way since they're super stiff. Does anyone have experience with Chrome vs 5.10, etc.? Any other brands are welcome. Ideally I'd like to use them for my MTB rides but would also like them to transition well to my road rides that can be 40-60 miles sometimes, which is the primary reason why I'm looking for something stiff.

I've been thinking about going to my local mtb track, and to get a feel of mtb and to test out my bike on this condition. Im just thinking would my 700c x 35 be enough for the trail and see how it goes or do i just give up on trying the mtb trail and stick with roads?

Hi guys, I’ve been cycling for a year now and have been using SPD-SL (road) pedals with cleats since I began but I am now contemplating switching to SPD MTB pedals as I believe it will be easier to walk in them. If anyone has experience of changing from road to MTB pedals, what are the main differences? I’m worried the MTB Cleats aren’t as secure as the Road cleats and don’t want to have an accident whilst sprinting. Thanks

I am going to get a trainer soon and I was thinking of using my MTB on it instead of my road bike as I rarely use my MTB anymore so if the rear tire wears down it will not matter. Should I use the MTB or would it be more beneficial from an exercise point of view to use my road bike?

As per title, I am a passionate mountain biker. Lately, i've been finding less and less time to load up my bike, drive to the trail, ride 15-20 miles and head home. I primarily have to ride on weekends because of this, where I was once riding 3-4 days a week. So i've been considering finally getting a quality road bike to spin 20-30 miles a few days a week after work. Just so happens that my friend is selling a truly awesome bike (full carbon, Di2 ultrgra) at a steep, friend discount. I set it up and took it out for 30 miles this weekend and it was awesome. I really want to give him the cash NOW, but I have a concern. Size. The frame is a 54. I am 6'1.5'' (186cm-187cm). In the MTB world, you primarly go off of feel when buying a bike. I ride a large even though i'm between sizes, simply to have a slightly smaller, more playful bike for the trails. With road biking I feel that proper size is much more important for long rides. Now I did this 30 mile ride at a good pace. Averaged 17.5mph. I felt good after, but admittedly a little tired as I'm simply not used to riding that far (MTB rides typically max out at 20miles for me, plus there is a lot more coasting and down-hills). My legs were a bit tired as expected and kneck was a little sore from being in that aggressive position, but otherwise I think i was ok? I plan to eventually do 50+ mile group rides down the road. Should I worry about the frame size being 54 at my height? I know the KOPS (knee over pedal spindle) is controversial, but I have been rehabbing a knee issue and like to pay attention to it. KOPS looked good on this bike and still have maybe 1/4inch of play in the seat to go back if needed. Only thing i noticed while riding was my left hand would get a little tingly. Happens on my MTB sometimes as well. I think its more from vibrations than anything, but looking for some guidance before dropping a few grand on a road bike! Thank you so much for your advice in advance.

Hi all! I've been using an entry level mountain bike for the last 7 years or so. It is a Carrera Vengeance 2012. It's an entry level MTB, but with mechanical disc brakes, and some after market schwalbe cityjet 2.0 tyres. This year, I finally decided to treat myself to a road bike. My MTB is so heavy, that getting something lightweight was high on my priority list. In the end, I went for a Cube Attain SL Disc 2017. I love the bike. It is a gorgeous and goes fast! However, I find I'm struggling with the harsh ride. Very harsh ride! It has Conti Grand Sport Race SL, 25-622 tyres on it. And after doing about 150 miles on it since I got it in Feb, I'm still not used to it. Will changing these out for 28mm make enough of a difference to warrant the change? The frame will take up to 32mm. Also, the hydraulic disc brakes feel really weak compared to my MTB - Is that just because of the smaller contact patch with the tyres? Many thanks!

OK first off, for all of the "hybrid" haters, I got this bike because I want to casual ride in our neighborhood and also do small commutes for fun/fitness, maybe up to 20 miles. I'm not looking to do some 60 mile road trip or anything like that, which is why I don't have any interest in a full on road bike. I wanted something I could ride on the road at speed (30-40mph when needed), but not want to throw it away when I hit our neighborhood brick roads and break my back, or rough neighborhood pavement with potholes and tree roots pushing the pavement up. To be honest I don't even know if this bike is technically a full on hybrid. It seems like a mix between a hybrid and a hardtail since it has thinner tires and 50mm shocks. So my question is, if I bought a second set of wheels with fatter MTB tires on them, maybe down the road buy a 100-120mm front suspension, is that the only difference between this bike and a full hardtail MTB bike? I've been watching trail videos a lot lately and it looks fun as hell, if the day ever comes that I want to travel 1-1.5 hours to get to a trail in central FL. I already have two bikes, I'm not really looking to get a third bike just to see if MTB trail riding would be fun or not. I'd rather try a couple of trails on this bike first and see if a new investment would be worthwhile, or even if just getting new tires and a lockout 120mm front suspension would give me everything I need. http://www.cannondale.com/en/USA/Bike/ProductDetail?Id=e1dfb9df-6b29-453f-98f1-cc6a430f9cd4&parentid=undefined

I put Shimano M530 pedals on my gravel bike and was wearing Five Ten shoes with no problem until recently^+ when I had to switch to using my road shoes (Giro Republic). I found that I couldn't clip in properly and that the cause was that the sole cleats either side of the SPD cleat are too high. I've had to bodge a fix by putting small washers underneath the SPD cleat. Is it just that road shoes can't be used with MTB pedals? I'm sure that the MTB shoes I've had before have had similar sole cleats. ^+ Achilles 'protectors' on the heel of the shoe were rubbing against my tendons on a very long ride. Ended up with Achilles tendonitis, but that's another matter.

I have recently picked up cycling and have always used my father's MTB. I ride anywhere from 1 to 4 (avg. 2.5) hours and the longest distance has been 35 miles. I ride approximately 50% fire-roads, 30% road and 20% single track ( nothing super technical but some rocky sectikns). I live in So-Cal so there are no downhill MTB parks near me. Could I have help deciding between the Salsa Journey man Sora with 650db tires or REI Co-op DRT1.3? I only can afford one bike and would like to be able to get the best for what I ride.

I live in the Midwest and looks like spring is here, well sort of. I am officially sick of staying off my bike and I'm really bored of indoor cycling. I have a Cannondale MTB with XC tires. I know its not a good idea to be doing long rides on paved paths because it hurts the tires, but I just want to be outside. Its another month minimum before the trails around me will open (we're seeing some severe flooding) and I don't have the budget for a cheap hybrid/road bike or a trainer. Is there something I should be doing before I start using my MTB on the streets? My tires aren't too knobby, so I'm not concerned about the huge resistance. I even have a set of spare tires when the time comes to start riding on trails. I intend on doing 15-30 mile rides twice a week.

Currently I'm using MTB pedals on my roadie with Spz Recon shoes, which utilize shoelaces. Can someone please recommend me shoes that look like road shoes and use BOA's but will accept MTB cleats? It's annoying stopping a few times on a long ride just to re-tighten my laces! TIA.

Hi everyone, I've got a wahoo smart trainer, and I used it with my "main" road bike. But now I'm going to ride outdoors too, so is it possible, to have an MTB on the trainer and ride with road bike outdoor? The road bike will be dirty and I don't want to bring it indoors (+it's complicated). Ofc, I'll use both. TL;DR: Is the effiency the same with an MTB on trainer, as with a road bike?

I have been road cycling for 20 years and decent track cyclist and want to do something more adventurous. I also horse ride and there are a few MTB’ers that want me to join their group. I wasn’t sure if it requires a different type of strength? Will road cycling be a good base to start? I have no upper body strength and may struggle to control the bike on the downhill. That said I am naturally not a long distance cardio person and have more of the track cycling lower body (big legs :-/) for short bursts if you were to make a comparison. Whilst there are multiple skill factors that go into MTB perhaps I may need to balance my upper body and strength work in the gym for arms and shoulders. Cyclists and arms don’t really go together. Either way it would be nice to prepare for spring in whatever way I can. I really want to go for it

So I've got these neoprene shoe covers from Louis Garneau that work well on my road shoes. But I've been doing some MTB and gravel riding over the winter and ending up with cold feet. My shoes basically have tread on the full length, and the shoe covers just have an opening around the cleat and at the heel. I'm curious what you folks are using with MTB shoes - any recommendations?

Hiya! I had a question that I feel some experienced riders have had to answer for themselves already, so i was thinking "standing on shoulders of giants" and all that! 😁 I love biking but I also love spinning and I literally just got the new Road bike Specialized S works 7 series shoes as a present. No issue apparent quite just yet but here comes the rub: my bike (as well as most spinning bikes) are SPDs (ie MTB cleats) and obviously road shoes dont tend to come with SPD cleat compatibility. The solution Ive found proposed online is to buy these Shimano adapters that you screw to your road bike shoes and then attach an MTB cleat to. I dont see very many people talk about it or many products cater to this problem, and that makes me think this may be a tremendously sub par solution. Hence my question: are these adapters a reasonable solution to my problem (cool shoes but no bike (spin or conventional) to ride them on) or is there a better solution? Im inclined to try and return but I cant as I dont have the box anymore... 😞 Many thanks for any good ideas/insights/solutions/general banter. Thanks!

I have an entry level mountain bike, a [Salsa Timberjack NX1 (2017)](https://www.rei.com/product/115493/salsa-timberjack-nx1-29er-bike-2017) that seems like it has always had poor shifting. It has the 1x11 Sram NX stock derailleur. When I shift to a higher gear (smaller cog) it often hesitates and when I shift to lower gears it often slips and skips back and forth between gears when I pedal. Often it will seem like its settled in one cog then at random will skip out of gear when pedaling...which is frustrating and dangerous on the trail. Furthermore, I've noticed that if I am in a lower gear and I backpedal (which is sometimes necessary) the chain will come off the cog I'm in and ride all the way down to the smaller cogs. I've had friends look at it who are more experiences MTB and they said the backpedal thing is on a 1x system is because of the chainline...but their 1x bikes don't do this. I've checked the limit screws on the rear derailleur and tried many times to adjust the cable tension with the barrel adjuster on the shifter. I'm thinking this is mostly cause by the poor chainline of the 1x system. And that 11 speed chain and cog spacing is so damn narrow! The chain only seems to be running straight when it's in the smallest rear cogs. But the crank and front chainring seem to be as close as they can be to the frame BB. No spacers or anything and the chainring clears the frame by only about 4mm or so. I'm a fairly savvy at working on my own bikes but I mostly ride simpler, older vintage bikes. The friction shifting on my 1985 touring bike with original derailleur is way smoother than this thing! I'm new to modern MTB components. What am I missing? Anyone out there familiar with this setup and the Sram NX rear derailleur? Are there other adjustments that I don't know about? How can I fix this?

Trying to sort out my first set of shoes and pedals. Have made the decision to go with SPD / MTB format due to the increased practicality of the recessed cleats, and have bought a pair of double-sided Boardman MTB Pro pedals. I also bought a pair of Giro Republic shoes which I love on paper, although I've hit the much-publicised issue of the tread fouling the pedal preventing it from engaging with the cleat. I'd planned to shim the cleat out bit the gap is pretty immense (around 1.5-2mm) and sadly the pair I got have some problems with the finish too so I'm think of just sending them back for a refund :( I'm finding to process of selecting a decent shoe a bloody nightmare - there are so many variables (size availability, colour, width, style, reviews) and all the sites I've come across have been really unhelpful as they don't allow you to sort by cleat type. I'm after something with a pretty stiff sole; ideally more "traditionally" road styled (preferably not astronaut-slippers) and more accommodating of wider feet. I found the Giros fairly accomodating of my feet, I think because they're laced. My budget's ideally no more than £100. Any help much appreciated as I thought I'd got this sorted with the Republics as a stand-out choice, and now I'm back to square one :(

Hey Everyone, I'm going to be renting an MTB this weekend to see what I think. I've never ridden trails or courses before and I found out we have some here pretty close to where I live. If I end up liking it enough to buy a bike I feel like I know enough now about bikes to not want a beginner $500 MTB. I want something I can grow into without going through the whole inevitable selling and upgrading process right down the road. I'd like to just get to an end point from the beginning that will last a long time. I feel like after looking EXTENSIVELY into what's out there from the $1000-1500 range and learning as much as possible about front forks, and gearing, and Derailleur product lines, QR vs Thru Axles, etc., originally I was looking at a Trek Stache 5 even though it has compromises with the suspension and brakes. I have a Specialized dealer around the corner that mentioned a Specialized Chisel Comp which has some super nice parts on it (Front Suspension being the possible weak point as well). Then I got into Diamondbacks. I mean honestly, for the price they're incredible deals. But for the life of me Bike reviews of any kind are extremely hard to come by for any bike, and brand, that is less than $2000. That being said, I'm thinking on these two options but don't really understand the difference. Originally I was looking for a 29" because of the supposed stability of them, etc., but for the price 27.5" seems to be the sweet spot. Both of the bikes below are 27.5 and have amazing gear on them. I can get either one for $900-1000 and can't find any other bike for less than $1500 with anything close to what these have. Anyone that's tried Diamondback, or especially either of these bikes, I'd love to hear from you all. Overdrive Pro: https://www.diamondback.com/overdrive-pro-27-17521 Mason Comp (Leaning more towards this one): https://www.diamondback.com/mason-comp-41376 BTW, I'm currently living in Central FL and may be moving (I HOPE) to Asheville, North Carolina within the next couple of years. I don't have dreams of being a pro rider or anything like that, but knowing myself I'm going to want to learn what I can and just have as much fun as possible. EDIT: Just talked to DB support and the Mason Comp won't be around anymore, it's being replaced by the Mason 2 which super bums me out. But would like any opinions on it too since it comes with a Rockshox Judy Gold fork and not the Fox that the Comp had on it: https://www.diamondback.com/mason-2 EDIT 2: Son of a bitch, I just realized the XL of the Mason 2 is out of stock too. Looks like I'll be waiting a little bit before getting a bike. But would still like some input on the Judy shocks, because even the Specialized Chisel I was looking at had the Judy Silver.

I got a pair of Specialized MTB shoes recently and have a question about the cleat fixing holes in the shoe. Basically they have been set in different positions on each shoe and I can't see a way of adjusting them so they match. I've used Shimano MTB shoes before and you take the inner sole out which gives you access to the fixing holes and a plate which you can then adjust and attach as needed. Although the Specialized manual says you can access the fixing holes by removing the inner sole - it's really not obvious what to do. There is a patch in the base of the shoe which can be lifted (awkwardly but with difficulty) but there is still padding underneath that with no access to the fixing hole plate. So, short of cutting material out of the bottom of the shoe I'm at a loss what to do. These photos hopefully show you what I'm faced with - any ideas / experiences would be gratefully received. https://imgur.com/a/khXZa

I've been using crank brothers mtb pedals on my Road bike, just never switched to Road pedals..I just like that I can walk in them without walking like a Penguin with road pedals and its easier to clip in and out..Does MTb pedals have any disadvantage when using it on a road bike compares to road pedals?

I am toying with the idea of road biking on the weekends and MTB on the weekdays. Reason is, I do like road biking, but the traffic has got me spooked. A delivery truck nearly brushed me 2 days ago, and a pick up truck the day before that, and I haven't got the courage to get back on the bike since. On the weekends, I can tote my road bike to some local rail trails, and I can do the quieter backroads early in the morning. There is also the benefit of a ton of road bikers during the weekend, so traffic is prepared for it. During the weekday, I am near a number of local forested trails, and could easily get over there to use a MTB. Anyone else do something similar?

I have a question on how much wiggle room I have when mixing different components. I have an older 2012 Trek 8.5 DS with 3x9 M590 shifters and front derailluer, and I am currently using a new 48-38-28 FC-T4060, but it has been damaged and I have to replace it (doh!).. I am wondering: - Can buy a road triple, such as a Sora FC-R3030 50-38-30 - is 50T close enough to a 48T that I can still use my current derailluer (moved up the seat tube 4 mm)? I know that 44 to 48 is significant, but 48 to 50 seems small enough to get away with it, MTB derailluer geometry-wise - Do I have to be careful about BB shell width with the Sora? while many Trek mountain bikes have a 68mm shell, the 8.5 DS uses a 73mm.

I'm about to buy my next pair of shoes and I am wondering whether I should buy a pair of high-end carbon mountain bike shoes and some SPD pedals instead of another pair of road shoes. My old road shoes are carbon composite, not pure carbon, and they aren't that light. I have never used MTB pedals so I don't know how well they perform, but I have always hated walking in road shoes with a passion. I might also buy a mountain bike or CX bike eventually. I do a few road races each year, though. Would I be missing anything if I don't stick with road pedals? Ideas?

In your experience are both equally as effective when it comes to preventing punctures? Also would you reccomened the MTB version for comfort on Paths/Road? Or isn't there much difference between the two in terms of comfort?

I have been cycling for the past 2 years but still have not invested in any sort of cycling specific shoe. I do 95% of my cycling on road but sometimes might go on forest paths and tracks. In the future I would like to start doing a bit more off road cycling also. I do not do any racing and my cycling is just for leisure while going for the odd KOM I am leaning more towards a road shoe as they seem to be more efficient for cycling on road. However, I've heard that if there is any but of walking while wearing them they can be worn down. Road shoes also look more sleek imo. What should I go for? Road or mtb shoes with appropriate pedals. Could anyone recommend any shoe from either category?

Hi. I have a Kross MTB 2016 and I am wondering if I should sell it to buy a CX bike? I mostly ride in the city and outside of it on the road. Also I am 179 - 180 centimeters tall and I am “athletic”.

Have been reading in the sub that a good sole (carbon) can take you a long ways regardless of the cleat style while riding road. If you had to choose between an mtb carbon sole (spd) and a road nylon sole (spd) what would you go for?? I’m thinking of a hybrid spd petal (considering the greater surface contact with the shoe) so I can ride with regular shoes too.

The time has come to change my bike tyres and I would like to go a different direction this time from the stock tyres that came with the bike. I use the bike mainly to get around the city as my main mode of transport and I also use it for work as a bike courier around 5 times a week. I would like to get a set of tyres that have lower rolling resistance than the average MTB tyres bit will still offer a reasonable level of grip for times when I take shortcuts through dirt trails and grass. The tyres should also perform reasonably well in wet conditions. Can anyone recommend a specific set of tyres for this purpose? My wheels take 27.5 X 2.1 tyres. Thanks guys.

I live in the city and have a MTB bike only. I have some trails near the city that I want to bike on, but they're at 15-20km distance away. I wanted to ask if it is worth buying slick tires, and cycling on them until there, then take them off and switch with tread, do my thing, then switch back to the slick ones to come back home. Is there anyone that also does this or is it too much of a hassle? I think that the treads wear off quite easy on the road in between home and trail, but I don't know.
