Buy used mountain bikes at VeloBird!
The sport of mountain biking is very diverse, which is reflected in a large number of different mountain bikes (MTB). On VeloBird you will find these and other models as used MTBs. Buying a used MTB is significantly cheaper than buying a new MTB.
What is a mountain bike?
A mountain bike is a very sturdy bike with thick tires for off-road riding. Well, that description is somewhat very general. Similar to racing bikes, MTBs also have special bikes for a wide variety of occasions. The most important models are presented here:
Cross Country MTB
A cross country bike is very often used in competitions, is very light and is very suitable for riding uphill. A bike is built accordingly: The sporty seating position offers little comfort. 29 inches are now standard on all cross country MTBs. The suspension travel is between 100-120 mm at the front. The handlebars are very straight and the brake discs are quite small to save weight.
All Mountain MTB
Compared to cross-country bikes, all-mountain bikes focus a little more on riding downhill and on jumps. These all-mountain bikes have around 130 mm of travel at the front and rear.
The enduro bike is much better suited for downhill riding than the all-mountain bike, but of course you have to make compromises when riding uphill. The tires are a lot wider and the weight is a bit higher. But an enduro is ideal for descents, jumps and bike parks. An enduro bike is the best compromise of all worlds! An enduro has a suspension travel of 150-180 mm and has a large rear cassette. The handlebars are also more curved.
A downhill bike, or big bike, is designed for the extreme variants of mountain biking. Everything is practically designed for you to ride downhill and do jumps, so perfect for a bike park. The saddle alone is so low that a ride uphill doesn't make sense. A downhill bike is therefore a perfect second bike. The suspension travel is about 200 mm.
An e-mountain bike is simply an MTB with electronic assistance, and they come in a variety of flavors. The goal is simple: make as many descents as possible! In the same amount of time you can do more descents with an e-MTB than with an MTB without electronic support.
Dirt Jump MTB
The dirt jump bikes look almost like BMX bikes, so they are very compact. The dirt jumps, as the name suggests, are designed for jumps and tricks. They are available with a front suspension only or with a rear suspension, but this is only for emergencies. So they are cushioned very hard. There is only one brake, if any, and it is on the rear wheel.
Why is it good to buy a used MTB from VeloBird?
It is in the nature of MTBs that they are subjected to a great deal of stress during trips and can be dirty or scratched after just one ride. In addition, almost all MTBs have a suspension fork, which is a special wearing part. Used MTBs are therefore significantly cheaper than new MTBs. VeloBird's used MTBs undergo a particularly thorough inspection. With a used MTB from VeloBird, we give you the guarantee that the bike is in very good condition.
