Features

Some features are quite important to consider, as they contribute towards bike usage and handling more than others. Suspension, wheel diameter and others are relevant here.

Suspension

While the rigid mountain bikes are devoid of suspension, it makes the bike more comfortable to ride. Fat bikes are often devoid of suspension.

The hardtail bikes feature a front suspension (the rear is devoid of it). The riders opting for cross country rides opt for this kind of suspension as it can transfer the power directly from the pedal to the rear tire. The full suspension bikes feature suspension at both the ends, possess qualities like better traction, and offer a comfortable and enjoyable ride.

Wheel size

Bikes with wheel size more than 29 inches may be slow towards acceleration but provide for faster terrain coverage. If you are looking for a mountain bike for a longer ride, opt for 20 inches wheel size or above.

Frame material

 Aluminium is the common choice for mountain bike frame and the expensive ones have the "light" aluminum frame. Carbon fiber, steel, and titanium are other options. The carbon-fiber frame is the preferred choice for the fat, and cross country bikes because of its low weight and high strength. Devinci offers premium and quality carbon fiber bikes on the best bike shop in Singapore viz. Bike Technics. Titanium bikes and be very expensive. Steel bikes get too heavy for longer hauls.

Gears, fit and other aspects may also be important. We advise you to look into the features and bike description in-depth, before choosing one.
