Who is this Bike for?Cross-country mountain bikes are designed to be ridden uphill just as fast as they are downhill. Nowadays they tend to sport 29in wheels or the newer 27.5in (650b) wheel size. The idea is to take the sting out of bumps, increase traction at the rear wheel and add a bit of comfort to the ride without hampering pedalling efficiency or adding unnecessary excess weight.About the BikeYou’ve thought about it—probably even got out on the dirt or gravel a few times—and now’s the time to pull the trigger on a fully-fledged mountain bike.
