    It isn't so much that the bike requires a different level of fitness, but the kind of riding. Put both on asphalt and you will have about the same requirements of fitness, unless of course you are...

    I have had both road bikes and mountain bikes, I prefer a mountain bike usually. If I knew it would always been pavement, I might be tempted on a road bike. Honestly, speed isn't a big thing to me as...

    In all honesty, I would get a set of tools first. Unless you have a serious budget available for having your bike tweaked at a bike shop, one of the best gains you can make is keeping your bike in...
