If you are an “off-road” thrill seeking adventurer who wants to fly through the woods with your bicycle, the Schwinn mountain bike is your perfect companion. A mountain bike is designed to handle off-road cycling. With key components meant to take on rough, unpaved trails and ride easily over roots, rocks, branches, and logs.
Mountain bikes come with flat handlebars for a wider grip to provide riders with more control over their bike. The tires on a mountain bike come in a variety of sizes including 26”, 27.5” and 29”, all of which have their own unique benefits and all of which are grooved to better grip the trail.
Many mountain bikes also include a front suspension and/or rear suspension fork to help smooth out the ride. Disc brakes are extremely popular in this category as they allow sure stopping power, even on dusty, muddy, trails.
"The Schwinn Sidewinder has 21-speed Shimano Revo twist shifters to ensure easy transitions and gear changes, while the Shimano rear derailleur can handle any trail you want to hit."
