Leszek Sibilski: The fat tyre bike is no longer the sole domain of hipsters. The first bicycle built for practical use was invented in Germany by Karl von Drais in 1817. Coined the laufmaschine or draisienne, the bicycle has since had many colourful names, including célérifère, penny-farthing, boneshaker, and dandy horse.
Tyre pressure is a critical measurement for getting the most out of your mountain bike. There are a number of variables that go into figuring out the ideal pressure range for a bicycle tyre such as the tyre’s width and carcass thickness, the rubber compound, and the rim’s width and overall shape. The types of conditions and trails you’re riding and your personal preferences will also have a massive bearing on how much air is appropriate.
When you are picking the perfect mountain bike, one of the most important things to consider is the bike frame. It is not only to consider at build but at frame material as well. Each one of material has different properties, advantages, and drawbacks.
