Mountain bikes are bikes designed for off-road cycling. Mountain bikes share similarities with other bicycles, but incorporate features designed to enhance durability and performance in rough terrain. These typically include a front or full suspension, large knobby tires, more durable wheel, more powerful brakes, straight handlebars, and lower gear ratios for climbing steep grades
These are types of bike designed to go both on, and off road road. Thus describes the name dual purpose. A type of hybrid bicycle conceived of a mountain bike and a street style bike.They generally have a suspension in front to soak up bumps off road and a narrow tire for when on the street. A bike you can take anywhere, anytime.
A fat bike also know as a fat tire bike, is an off-road bicycle with oversized tires designed for low ground pressure to allow riding on soft, unstable terrain, such as snow, sand, bogs and mud. Fat Bikes are built around frames with wide forks and stays to accommodate the wide rims required to fit these tires. The wide tires can be used with low inflation pressures to allow for a smooth ride over rough obstacles.
A recumbent bicycle or tricycle that places the rider in a laid-back reclining position. Most recumbent riders choose this type of design for ergonomic reasons. The rider's weight is distributed comfortably over a larger area, supported by back and buttocks. On a traditional upright model, the body weight rests entirely on a small portion of the sitting bones, the feet, and the hands.
