Hey there, I know its stupid and for the money I am going to put in I could probably buy a new, lower tier gravel bike but lets do a thought experiment. I am planing to convert my [cannondale carbon flash 29er](https://www.bike-magazin.de/mountainbikes/hardtail/cannondale-flash-carbon-29er) from 2011 to a gravel bike with dropbars. I have put quite some time into comparing geometry numbers and it is in the realm of the more MTBish gravel bikes. With a 71.5° head tube, 73° seattube, 424 mm reach and 638 mm stack (size L, I am 190 cm) I think a conversion should be possible. Now I see two options here: 1. full SRAM Apex 1x11 group: I can keep my 10x freehub body, my brakedisks and maybe my calipers (elixir 9). 2. only SRAM rival 2x11 hydro Brifters: 1. 2x should have the same pull ratio as on MTBs so the front derailleur should work fine 2. 11x SRAM road components and 10x SRAM MTB parts have the same pull ratio. Hence, I think the 11 speed shifter should work fine with a slack gear on one end. (please correct me if I am wrong) 3. I assume that lever ratios on hydraulic disk brakes are across the board the same for SRAM. If thats true I can use the brifters with my existing elixir 9 calipers. Does somebody know if that could work? Especially the second option?

Has anyone bought both road and MTB shoes from lake? I've had a set of Lake cx237 road shoes in size 46 for a few years.. they've been great but just a tad long. I just bought a pair of the mx238 mtb/supercross version in 45.5..... but I swear to God I feel like im taking crazy pills because the smaller 45.5s (even with "cats tongue" material) allow my heel to slip even more than my 46s. They feel even longer!!! I know the MTBs are technically a new generation (238 vs 237) but aside from upper material change, the last appears identical. I'm considering returning and trying the 45 wides since I'm on the cusp of their wide sizing. Please tell me someone else has gone through this haha!

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

Will mtbing help me become a better road cyclist? I love both, and in mtbing, I’m definitely climbing a lot more. Will mtbing carry over to help to improve in road cycling and vice versa?

I came here the last time I purchased a bike and you were all very helpful. Any insight is greatly appreciated. I am thinking of buying this bad boy: [https://www.marinbikes.com/bikes/2021-rift-zone-2](https://www.marinbikes.com/bikes/2021-rift-zone-2) However, before I spend the money, does anyone have any experience with this model, any knowledge of its components, rules of thumb about MTBs in general, or just any tips/tricks/suggestions/wisdom that you think might be helpful? I have a little experience with MTBs, mostly just beaters, but there are some trails I just discovered by my house that are calling my name and I want something quality to ride on them.

Hi everyone I' m new to MTB would like to get some thoughts from experienced riders in BC Canada. The dilemma I'm facing is as follows: I'm about to make an investment in my first serious MTB and would not want for this to be a missed opportunity. I am a road cyclist and also enjoy riding in nature, exploring trails and getting outdoors. I have tried single track in the North shore and while I found it interesting, I don't have a death-wish or feel like getting injured anytime soon. I would be open to doing green or blue trails occasionally with a very non-ambitious approach. Local MTB fellows tell me a full suspension is the way to go, since most of the available terrain around here is suited for this type of bike. I have explored around a bit and it does seem that 'hardtail- suited terrain is limited to a couple of locations (thinking of something like the UBC trails). I could stretch my budget to an entry level FS (Norco Fluid or so), but I can't afford 2 MTBs. I would be pretty disappointed if after investing on a good hardtail I end up being limited to UBC, Burnaby Mountain and Stanley Park. Any thoughts?

Would there be a difference for sizing for 90s mtb and road bikes if both are being used for road commuting? I know mtbs have more stand over clearance to absorb shock and whatnot on trails but most roads are more stable enough not to need it? If that's true why do yoi size down for mtb?

I recently moved from NYC to California and I’m near some great mtb trails. The closest trails are easy/medium and mostly hard pack — nothing I haven’t done on my cyclocross bike. I bought some 700x38 knobbies (max clearance) and was planning to hit the dirt, but recently scoped things out while hiking and saw everyone riding serious hardtails or full suspension mtbs. I’m pretty sure my cx bike would be fine on easy/medium trails w/ knobbies. For more difficult stuff, I’d want a proper mtb. But I’m just getting back into trail riding, so don’t want to get ahead of myself with a new bike. Am I missing something?

Hy fellas. I'm trying to setup an MTB trail in my neighborhood. It's a big abandoned forest patch in the middle of a City. I just want it to be basic as we barely have people who are aware of what MTBing is and probably I've to do the digging all by myself. The terrain is rocky and very steep at some places. Please suggest things to keep in mind. ☮️

Hey all, I bought a road bike (Reacto 8000) last year after 20+ years doing cross country, fire road, trail stuff on MTB/XC bikes. > On a lightweight XC bike down trails averaging 19-20kph I can hit 100km and not feel physically wiped out. I've actually done quite a few 200km days with a couple of 250km days thrown in and feel fine afterwards. However, I head out on the road bike (down cycle paths) and I'm only averaging 21-22kph and feel totally wiped out after 100kms. The last 10kms are usually a bit of a push to get home where I can finally lay down and contemplate my life choices. I'm fitted to all my bikes professionally, so I'm putting this down to fitness or that I need to get used to the road bike in some way. Has anyone else experienced this after moving from MTB/XC to road bikes?

My wife wants to buy me some shoes for my birthday. She'd like to spend no more than $150. I ride exclusively on the road, but I've been looking at a MTB shoe with some tread so I can walk around when I'm off the bike. I use SPD clipless pedals. I've heard Shimano makes a good shoe, and those are available at my LBS. What other brands do you recommend?

I see so much tension between both groups of riders. Mtbers love the term roadie as if its an insult. I ride both in a serious way and enjoy them both but I see so much hate amongst cyclist's just because they are on a different bike or they are in lycra etc. Never understood it myself I condone of anybody on two wheels and is having fun. Just curious as.to why people argue when at the end of the day we are all "cyclists"

Why are road/mtb freewheels the same size (as in number of cogs) but the largest cog is always bigger on a mtb? Are roadies just stronger so don’t need the 50 tooth?

I am new to riding, as in just got my bike 2 days ago and have been out once......i was gonna wait on some cycling shorts but i am being a wuss lol. I am no where near ready for that skin tight lycra life, weighing in at 325 it just wouldn't fell comfortable. Was wondering what mtb or casual (if there is such a thing) cycling shorts people prefer and if there are affordable ones out there. Yes I am a Chonk so companies that make bigger sizes for now would be preferable. TIA!!!

How I got here: running on the road was my "accessible" fitness. Out the front door. Run a few miles. Sweat. Move on. All year. All conditions. But my knees were shot after a year and a half. Slso spent most of my life on a MTB for both pleasure and fitness when not running but packing up my gear and hauling over to a trailhead was unrealistic for training 5x week. Enter road biking. Oh man. Not that. Lycra shorts, skinny arms, weird tan lines, bright colors. Those weird shoes that clip in and guarantee your death if you hit a twig going 35mph. But for the sake of my mentality and fitness, I traded in my 27.5+ beast (not in a position to own two rides) and scoured the used market for something that had reliable components and disc brakes (some things I'm not willing to give up). Found a bike. Planned some routes. And went out. And it's really great. I know there's a honeymoon period with new sports, or new bikes...but the quiet mornings, the sunrises on quaint back roads in New England, are worth the early wake up call. Clipless is still odd. The head angle is still awkward. I still feel like I might die flying down hills. But, it's good. Plus, it's fast. But you already knew that.

Hi, I recently replaced a stretched chain on my bike (Trek FX2) which I use for commuting and the 6/7th gears which I use most often are now skipping. I assume this is because the teeth are worn so I thought this might be a good excuse to change the drivetrain to get rid of most of the gears I don't use. On the front I have 48/38/28 and on the back I have 8 speed, 11-32. Generally I'll always keep the front on the middle gear and cycle in 6/7th on the back, then 4,5 and 8 for hills. If I were to switch to switch to a full road set instead of MTB, go down to 2 rings on the front and maybe change the cassette on the back to something with better ratios what would be involved with switching the set out? Also, is there any pros/cons to these smaller cassettes that I see for sale (as long as the ratios match), I can't find any details. Also, is it even worth it? while it'd be nice to have a few extra gears around the range I actually use, is this actually just normal and people just don't use half of their cassette? Will it be so much time and money that I won't even notice the difference?

I had this idea of building my DIY mini toolkit for use on mtb and touring, that will mostly ( if I'm not wrong ) cover any mechanical issue. It consists of: \-1/4 ratchet \-1/4 to hex bits adapter \-Hex bits ( Allen bits from 1.5 mm to 8mm, ph2 and flat head) \-Hex bit extender \- Multi-tool (leatherman style) \- Patch kit For the case, you can 3d print a plastic one or just slap them in into any convenient case. The cost will be around 30-50€, depending on the brands you buy Any ideas/advice/improvements/etc you have?

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'm looking at purchasing a smartwatch to record/monitor bike rides and workouts. My Note 9 is what I use to record bike rides right now; sometimes I hit "pause" during a break and forget to hit "resume" leading missing segments. Would a smart watch like the Active 2 allow me to press "pause/resume" on my phone app or would the watch run an independent app? From what I've read the Active 2 doesn't support "Live Segments" and the GPS isn't as accurate as a phone. So could I run Strava on my Note 9 and control it through the watch? Or should I go with a cheaper fitness tracker if all I really need is a heartbeat & VO2 monitor to sync with my phone's GPS & Strava app? I always carry my phone with me for music/podcasts, safety beacon, and emergency phone calls. Any advice is appreciated as I have zero experience with smart watches. ​ \*\* My budget is up to about +/- $250

Longtime roadie very new to mountain biking. I’ve test ridden a few trail bikes and love how stable they feel as I get my confidence on the trails, but climbing is my favorite part so I’m really interested in XC. I’m looking to buy my first mountain bike and am hoping to get some suggestions. Are there any models out there that are maybe an XC bike but on the spectrum leaning more towards trail in terms of suspension and geometry and that’ll handle well on technical trails? Definitely don’t want a hard tail. I’m mostly riding around Boulder though have family in Marin, CA so are lucky to often ride a lot out there. Thanks!

I've been wanting to pick up a road oriented bike for a while now to help round out my quiver. I'll be using it for longer paved trail rides, commutes, and occasional trips downtown. I've narrowed it down to two used <$100 bikes. Late 80's early 90's Centurion Turbo. Looks nearly stock. Pre-2010 Kona dew hybrid style. Cantilever brakes not disc. I guess when it comes down to it, is an old Japanese high end bike going to be better than a semi-modern low end bike?

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 newbie and this is gonna be my first serious bike purchase and hence am doing my best to understand the options and not be stuck by industry jargon. I'm looking for an all round universal bike that allows me to test different riding styles and terrains and decide what I like the most and hence am interested to invest the minimum budget for this trial without sacrificing fun or usability (as much as possible although I know well enough that universal things wouldn't be as good as purpose-built options however for trying purposes I'm keen to try). Having said that, it seems that a 29er (for faster speeds) hardtail is the closest to above purpose as it allows going off road while joining group rides with other friends who ride gravel/road bikes. I wouldn't want it to be too good in anything but tasteful and practical without paying high money for marginal differences. I have been looking at the following options from Bianchi as I can have a good deal on them. However I got a bit stuck on the gearing and groupset differences. https://www.bianchi.com/bike/magma-9s-sx-eagle-1x12sp/ https://www.bianchi.com/bike/magma-9-0-deore-2x10sp-2/ https://www.bianchi.com/bike/magma-9-2-alivio-altus-3x9sp-3/ I just started reading on the meanings of gear ratio and gear range and still have a hard time grasping them fully however based on my research it seems that 2x gearing is better suited to both gravel/offroad rides wheres with 1x I might run out of gears on straight or downhill roads (the kind of terrain that is a lot around where I live so I definitely wouldn't want to miss out on that). 3x is probably also still fine except old fashioned. As low budget is important I might as well go for the 3x but as I'm not sure the advantage would be huge, I'm leaning towards the mid way which is the 2x one however I'm not quite sure about this conclusion and could use some confirmation and guiding. -- -- TLDR: Looking for an allround hartail option as my first serious bike and I have the following questions: 1- Would the [2x bike](https://www.bianchi.com/bike/magma-9-0-deore-2x10sp-2/) above be good enough low budget bike for both amateur gravel and MTB riding or I need to look at other options? Gear specs in case link goes down: > *Crankset: Shimano FC-MT500-B2 36x26T, BOOST compatible, crank length: 170mm-15/17", 175mm-19/21"* > > *Cassette: Shimano CS-HG500-10, 11-13-15-18-21-24-28-32-37-42T* 2- Is there any other important connsiderations for the above mentioned use case? (I'm currently set on Aluminum frame, 29 wheel size, Hydraulic Disc Brake but any tips regarding other things incl shifter, handlebar etc would be appreciated)

Hi, I'm a 32 yo dude, whose main sport is backcountry skiing in the winter and trail running in the summer. I used to do a lot of MTB (trail riding) along with some road biking a couple years back. This resulted in me biking about 5 times weekly, but never according to a proper training plan. I usually run 4-5 times a week now and spend an additional day at the gym doing core excercises. Over the last year I have started adding occasional MTB (which usually is a 2-3hr ride in my Z2-Z4 zones (up and down biking) and wanted to add road biking to the mix. So this would mean that I could bike twice a week, with one of the rides \*sometimes\* being such a 2-3hour MTB ride. The idea is that if the weather is good and it hasn't been too slippery, I'd like to go MTB biking at least once, but if it's wet and damp, I'd do two road workouts in the week. So my week would look the following: Mon: (**Bike (or MTB)** or 50-60' Easy Run) + Strength Tue: Rest or 50-60' Easy Run Wed: \~60' Easy running Thu: Interval training (running) Fri: **Bike (or MTB)** Sat: High intensity anaerobic intervals (running) (e.g. uphill sprints) Sun: Long run (2-3hrs) My question to you folks is: what would be the most efficient way to spend those either the one or both days (depending on the weasther) on the road bike? Would an interval training make sense, or should this be active recovery, or a very long ride? Or some special excercises that I could be doing? Or just a tempo ride? The goal is to (limited to those two days a week) get better (endurance wise and climbing I think) at biking.

Hello, As trends changes, I'm pretty far away from keeping up with them. I still ride 3x9 MTB with full lycra and clipless MTB shoes, you know like a serious racer. lol Anyways, trends started to change and I'm considering buying normal loose shorts for my MTB. With that I remember that I saw Shimano clipless shoes back in the day, but the catch was that they looked more like a trekking shoe, instead of stiff MTB carbon shoe. It's not usual that I wander around trails on my feet, but from time to time I geocache in the wild with friends, which requires getting off the bike and walking around. I think I seen some Shimano clipless shoes with the ability to close that part (not screw it in with screws) where the cleats are attached (I forgot how that thing is called) or my memory is lying to me? Does anything like this exists? In conclusion, I'm looking for versatile MTB shoes. Any recommendations?

I'm looking into getting my first set of clipless shoes. Went to the store today and they recommended MTB shoes for me because I have a gravel bike, although I only ride it on the road and will probably only do so for the foreseeable future (I might also get a road bike at some point this year). I've been told some of the differences between the MTB and road shoes. MTB shoes can be walked in normally, their soles won't wear out if you need to walk on gravel as will road shoes, road shoes are generally stiffer and can thus transfer energy more efficiently to the pedal, etc. The one selling point that they made regarding MTB shoes was that since they have two clipping points as opposed to three with road shoes, they were easier to unclip and thus better for a beginner. Another store told me that's not true. What is the truth? Finally -- and this is a completely separate question -- how should I judge the shoes' fit? I know the basics: heel shouldn't slip, toes should be able to be wiggled, etc. But I was a bit thrown off by the salesperson's advice that "it shouldn't feel uncomfortable anywhere". I've never bought a pair of shoes that didn't feel uncomfortable even a little bit, so I don't know how particular I should be. I tried on a pair today that felt a little narrow in the toe box, so I tried a pair of Northwave that were a bit wider, but then the heel slipped a bit. I know this is all a personal thing but what's the most important thing to look for? Or do I need to seek perfection? 😀

I used to always cycle MTB but use road for interval training and long distance stamina etc. but when my country went into lockdown last year, I had the replace my MTB's freehub, so I couldn't cycle with it, so I started cycling only road. I only recently got it fixed and started cycling on my MTB again about 3 weeks ago. Something that I realised, is that I'm so used to my road bike's gears being able to go a lot higher, that it feels like my mtb gears can't go nearly as high as I want it to. Where I used to only be on my max gears when going downhill somewhere, or if I already have a lot of momentum, so I'm able to do so, I now cycle on my highest gear on any flat road, and it feels like I need more. I know I can't really do much about it, but I just wanted to share it.

I realize I've posted before in but while I thought I'd sorted out what I was doing, I've gotten myself in a feedback loop trying to decide on sizes. Currently I have a [Large Stumpjumper 2021 29er] (https://www.specializedconceptstore.co.uk/product/16347/2020-stumpjumper-st-alloy-29/) The size was advised by the shop I purchased it from. It was ok at first but i ended up having a bike fit to adjust a few things (slightly longer stem and get the saddle height/position dialled in) which helped alot. I am now looking at getting a [Canyon CF 7.0](https://www.canyon.com/en-gb/road-bikes/endurance-bikes/endurace/endurace-cf-sl-7-disc/2947.html) The fitter who fit me says that I need to get a Large - which according to Canyon are advising a Medium. My height is close to 180cm and 80cm inside seam While that might be correct to go for medium on only that, as mentioned the fitter is recommending a large. Not that I don't agree with him I am just not sure what differences that would make coming from the MTB. I realize my position will change more (more lent over going from an MTB to Road) but I'm wary about purchasing a bike too large. I've tried to look at the Geometry comparison on [99spokes.com] (https://99spokes.com/compare?bikes=specialized-stumpjumper-alloy-2021;*z.S4|w.29,canyon-endurace-cf-sl-disc-7.0-2021) / [geometrygeeks.bike](https://geometrygeeks.bike/compare/specialized-stumpjumper-st-alloy-29-2020-l,canyon-endurace-cf-sl-7-disc-2021-m,canyon-endurace-cf-sl-7-disc-2021-l/) but I'm not all that great in translating it. Fitter provided these [measurements](https://i.imgur.com/uGtnBAm.png) I do realize the main advice I'll get here is 1. I should discuss further with the fitter (I 100% will, just not available at the moment) 2. Get a bike that I can test ride. (Wasn't possible with Canyon and no local stock of similar bikes or alternatives to try) But I did want to hear some other thoughts if anyone's had any similar experiences with MTB to Road or Larger bike than manufacturers suggested

EDIT: These are 2-hole MTB shoes, so (as per replies below) I believe I need SPD pedals. It's which ones specifically (in order to order them) that's confusing me. I just bought a pair of Northwave MTB shoes. These are my first bike shoes. The store, however, did not have the proper pedals: they say that although they're a huge chain, the proper Shimano pedals have been out of stock for a long time due to Covid and they're not sure when they'll get more (they did have one super-expensive pair they didn't recommend I get). They said if I were able to source the pedals elsewhere (Amazon Spain -- I live in Spain --, or another bike store, for example), they'd put them on. They said I should look for "automatic MTB pedals". But NOT the type that have one side meant for street shoes. I went to a big bike store online and looked under Shimano pedals. They had some, but I have absolutely no idea what model numbers I'm looking for. Are there specific model numbers someone could give me? What is the price I should be looking to pay (more or less) for a good pair that will hold up and also allow a beginner to detach easily? They should be adjustable so that I can make the detaching a bit harder as I get more experienced. I also went to a local bike store and they had a pair of HT Leopard M1 pedals. Are these equivalent to the Shimanos in terms of quality and ease of use for a beginner? I read one review that said they were more fussy to install, and that it took the reviewer a lot of time to get them right, adjusting the included shims. I obviously don't know what I'm doing with bike shoes (yet), so want something fairly plug and play, and that will allow me to attach and detach easily, to avoid crashes. Any recommendations much appreciated!

Hi, I'm planning on buying a bicycle. I like trails and sometimes long rides. I live in North America. Before moving here, I used to have MTB. I'm not sure how easy it'll be transitioning from MTB to road bikes. I've previously done serveral 100km+ rides with my MTB. Can someone share their experiences or some insights on what would be best in my situation? N:B: I'm not a native English speaker so I hope there wasn't confusion in my writing.

I’m sure this has been posted before but I am in the market for new shoes. pre-covid, most of my cycling was city based and some local gravel/single track so I wore a pair of giro mtb shoes which I love. but they’re falling apart and at a point of needing to be replaced. I rode a cross bike. now I am living in an area that pretty much only offers road cycling (flat, country, shoreline/beach type roads). This may be a temporary living situation depending on pandemic/job. I have been doing 25-60mile rides and i have been riding my cross bike. I’m thinking of investing in a road bike and I’m wondering how big of a difference it makes to wear road shoes. would it be weird or bad/would I be a total n00b if I had mtb pedals/shoes on a road bike? I’d like to not have to invest in two different shoes, but also I’ve noticed I’m not super comfortable on long rides in my current set up. suggestions of your favorite mtb or road shoes would be nice :) (also if anyone has any opinions on cannondale super six evo 105, or any of the other cannondale road bikes, I’d love to hear them too)

How much faster can I expect a $1k Road or Gravel Bike be compared to my $500 Supercycle MTB? Currently, I can average around 20km/h on the 45lb Supercycle MTB on an hour-long ride. I should clarify that I am using my MTB around the city. Not actually using it as an offroad bike. Side question: How do I get up to a 30km/h average?

I am getting a new race bike next week and was doubting if i should get race or mtb pedals. I already have some mtb shoes so thats the biggest reason why i would get the mtb pedals. Is there any big difference between them? What do you guys use on your race bike?
