2. Author Rival
The mountains and roads are more demanding of the bike than smooth paved roads and sidewalks. The difference between mountain and urban bikes is not only in names but also in the specifics of the component parts. Mountain bikes work great when you have a challenge to overcome the many sudden descents, ascents, jump off the hill and drive through the sharp gravel. If that’s what you want, then a normal bike you don’t fit. You’ll be constantly repaired, and some day will kill.
As an example, a separate «miners» we chose the bike from the manufacturer to the Author. This is a Czech company which is actively involved in the development of Cycling, even their sports team is, where our guys are. But now not about it. They have a budget

The gear motor weighs little, has a high traction and allows that it is very important to ride as a conventional bike. That is, if the charge is gone, you’re still a good ride thanks to one of the pedals.
You can ride with just one thrust of the engine as on a motorcycle. A separate mode PAS is when you’re pedaling but the motor’s helping you, essentially adding speed. Mileage on just one charge up to 50 kilometers and a lithium-ion battery (45 V, 7.5 Ah) can be easily removed and replaced by a loaded.
The construction itself is pretty damn reliable and quite reasonable even for off-road: dual suspension, quality fork, disc brakes, thick and robust rubber 2.25 inch. A battery is generally a real miracle of engineering. It is designed for a thousand charge cycles, and it is three years or thirty thousand kilometers. It provides power for turn signals and your smartphone when it needs to recharge (the USB connector). Not without a display that keeps you informed of the charge, speed and mileage. Yes, it costs about 80 thousand rubles, but the money will be compensated, especially if you change on a bike with a car or public transport.

In Russia they got not so long ago, a few days ago. And the world drew attention to them in 2013-2014, when the old technical solution, known since the early twentieth century, added modern engineering stuff. Fat bikes show themselves great on loose surfaces, which is outside of the bike with traditional wheels. First of all, we mean snow, sand, tall grass. Of course, you can ride them around town, but are assigned to these bikes, especially for severe off-road. In Russia recently held a regular joint trips on these bikes. As a rule, outside the city.
Is the fat-bike a lot, but we found a very good option, which is not only price but also quality. Manufacturer is the company «BearBike», which makes a really important thing – developing the concepts of bikes and assembles them here in Russia. We chose their model of FET-bike, which they called so-and native-fatherly «Volga». First of all, select a design that is pleasing to the eye. It is clear that people worked not only on the internals, but also on beauty. The bike is made of high-tech components: aluminum alloy, durable bolts, hydro-brakes, remote promptservice, double welded seams on the most loaded nodes, tires 60TPI.
