As the name implies, mountain bikes were originally made for off road riding. Although trail riding is where they excel, mountain bikes also make good, rugged city bikes. They're sort of the Jeep or SUV of bicycles, except that the gas mileage is better. Here's what we offer. (Prices includes a kickstand and Intown water bottle.)
Raleigh Talus 2.0
(For ten & eleven year olds)
The Talus is our offering for that little guy (or girl) that's too big for a childrens bike, but not quite big enough for a full size adult bike. With a 12" frame, it's basiclly an extra small adult bike. We carry the Talus in only the 12" frame size, but we can order any size you'd like. It's a good value, and it's a bike you can pass around the family as the kids grow in and out of it.
Raleigh Talus 3.0
Next we offer the Talus 3.0. It's a great light duty mountain bike. Although it's designed primarily for street use, it does fine on the occasional off-road trail. Like all of the Raleighs, it's a lot of bike for the price. (Also available in matt blue.)
Jamis Trail X3
Next up is the Trail X3. It falls into the light duty mountain bike category as well. However, it leans more toward the off-road side of things with more rugged components, disc brakes, and off-road geometry. The longer top tube and slightly lower handlebars give it superbe handling off road. Also available in dirt.
Jamis Exile Sport
The Exile is our entry in the 29'er mountain bike category. If you really want to do some mountain biking, and do it at an affordable price, this is your bike. The frame is aluminum for light weight, the front shock locks out for the street, and of course the big 29" wheels will carry you over anything. The Exile is truly an excellent entry level sport mountain bike.
Raleigh Misceo Trail 1.0
Here's a bike we added to our lineup last year. You could call it a hybrid, or you could call it a mountain bike, but either way, it makes a great, rugged, urban bike. It has a more narrow tire than a typical mountain bike, so it's a little faster on the street, yet it's still wide enough for taking off road. We think of it as an urban mountain bike. If you like the toughness or style of a mountain bike, but ride mainly on the street, this would be a good bike for you.
Raleigh Mesika Trail 1.0
The Mesika is the women's version of the Misceo above, only it's a little smaller, and it fits a woman better with it's shorter reach to the bars. It makes a good street bike with the narrower tires, but makes a good off-road if you want to hit the occasional dirt road or take it camping. If you like the toughness or style of a mountain bike, but do a lot of street riding, this would be a good bike for you.
