Different kinds of bike (p.2) MOUNTAIN BIKE
In the 80′s, mountain bikes were beginning to become popular. The reason is because they can ride on most things. They can ride easily on rough terrain including dirt roads, mountains, etc. But they can also ride on street roads and other smooth surfaces. Plus, they can ride on them pretty fast. People liked this idea of riding on practically anything and that’s why it became popular. Today, many people including me have a mountain bike for the same reason.
