Everything you need to know about bikes to ensure that your next bike is perfect for you. If you are new to mountain biking or cycling generally then choosing the right bike can seem completely overwhelming. With a huge variation in models, wheel size, tyre width, gears and sizes the options seem endless. That's where this guide comes to your rescue, let's clear the fog and decipher the nuance differences to help you find your perfect bike.
Investing in a new bike can be life changing so before starting, its worth asking yourself a few simple questions which will really narrow your search and make finding your perfect bike that much easier.

What type of riding will you be doing?

This will help to identify the best category of bike will suit your needs. Are you looking to start venturing onto the forest trails on a hardtail mountain or searching out rougher singletrack and need a full suspension? Maybe you're planning to tour the country and need an electric touring bike.

Electric assist or not?

Once you decide on the type of terrain you are planning to ride, the next best question to ask is if you would like the bike to have electric assist. Electric bikes, or ebikes, have an integrated motor and battery system that offers assistance and are a great help for riders looking to reach new fitness goals, commuters looking for a fast and effortless journey while also being fantastic for mountain bikers looking to ride further and tackle the hill that would otherwise have kept you indoors.
