Best Entry-Level Road Bikes For Beginners

Unlike race bikes or mountain bikes, comfort bikes allow you to ride in a comfortable upright position. You don’t have to lean forward too much. This is great for folks who have back, shoulders, or neck pain.

The frame of a comfort bike is similar to that of a mountain bike and a hybrid bike. However, a comfort bike’s frame is a bit thicker and provides more stability. You’ll also find comfort bikes with suspension forks. What suspension forks do is they absorb shocks or bumps on the road. This will greatly help you get much smoother rides.

These bikes are usually quite low to the ground. You can sit on it with your feet flat on the ground. Also, the seat is quite comfy. It is usually wider and has much more cushioning than the banana seats on most mountain or race bikes. Very comfortable!

All of these features make comfort bikes a great choice for younger riders who want a stylish ride around the neighborhood. And even elderly riders who want a nice exercise without getting too much back and shoulder soreness after each ride.

Top 7 Best Mountain Bikes Under 500 Dollars Review In 2019

The majority of us hold the belief: low prices mean low quality. Well,, will not say it is totally wrong, but the limit of ‘low prices’ is hard to identify. And surely, 500 dollars is a reasonable budget when it comes to the best mountain bikes.

I remember when I first tried mountain biking, I was overwhelmed with the mass variety of choices and instructions. My uncle, Fred, emptied his pocket (and his bank account) to have a Yeti, which cost more than my annual salary. I, on the other hand, could only afford a Mongoose – a much cheaper and less comfortable choice. However, after a long time, my low-budget friend remains as a powerful warrior, while my uncles are sold to another biker due to its high requirements.

So, if you are looking for a mountain bike that is comfortable, safe, durable, light-weight, and good-looking, check the top 3 that we sorted out after careful assessment.
