More About Your Mountain Bike Brands
Depending on your preferences, you can have a specialized mountain bike or just a base mountain bike. Here at Bicycles Unlimited, we have a variety of mountain bikes for sale for you to choose from. This type of bike is built for exactly what it’s called, mountains, or off-road riding. These bikes are built for durability and are a bit more rugged than other bikes because of the expected rough riding. The frame is quite sturdy and is equipped with more intense front-end and rear suspension over other bikes. Most come with 20 plus speeds and high gear ratios, allowing you to adjust for the different types of trails you may experience. The tires are wider and have more tread than other bikes would in order to accommodate for the rugged terrains.

Mountain Bike Repairs and Servicing
With the cycling season upon us, it is highly recommended to get your mountain bike in the shop for seasonal servicing. Once at the start of the season and again at the end, before putting your mountain bike away for storage, you should get a full service. In between, it is recommended to do general cleanings at your own home. You can do this by rinsing and wiping down your bike followed up by using a degreaser and reapplying lubricants. During the riding season, basic tune-ups are a great way to ensure your bike has the longest life it can while making sure you are riding safely on a functional bike.
At Bicycles Unlimited, we have over 70 years of combined experience. It is our goal to make sure you have the best service possible at a price that will leave you smiling. Don’t forget we offer a 30-day warranty on all the services we provide! While your bicycle is being serviced you can wander our fully stocked shop to check out our biking gear and accessories we have. Contact us for any questions you may have! We are happy to help.
