Why spend 3k on a road bike?

7 answers · 1 day ago

Most calorie calculators all seem to figure you are on a road with a road bike and street tires. But a mountain bike with knobby off-road tires on a street has more weight and more resistance and takes more effort. Any idea how much more? I am generally doing about 5 to 6 miles in 30 minutes.

I am going mountain biking for the first time ever with a coworker who does a lot of mountain biking. I am not sure what to wear as I do not own any gear. I am a girl - what type of shoes, shorts/pants and top should I wear so I don't embarrass myself?

Best answer: Absolutely, positively, without a shadow-of-a-doubt...nope. If cycling reduced belly fat, I'd be skinny as a rail logging over 8,300 miles last year. Cycling is a cardiovascular & aerobic exercise which can help to reduce body fat all over on a PROPORTIONATE level. Cycling does NOT target one specific... show more

Best answer: Your legs will.

Best answer: Somewhat agree - somewhat disagree with answer from Terrence B. I wouldn't exactly call the FX Sport 4 an "entry level bike" - not at a $1,149.99 price tag. Entry level fitness or hybrid bikes don't come... show more

I got this bike just a little over a month ago. It's a MTB, made in Bulgaria(I think), costed 450eur. It started recently after I drove 100 miles with it in a single day(on bad roads aswell).

Best answer: Without several closeup photos, no one can tell you a thing. The Hardrock has been made for years with varying degrees of components from poor to good. It's the 'entry level' MTB from Specialized. As another has suggested, you'll learn a lot more about the bike by simply visiting a bike shop... show more
