Bicycles Online > Mountain Bikes
A wide variety of
Bikes and Mountain Bike Parts are available online and at great prices.
There are still places where very few
people go or can get to. Places where there are no roads, no bike paths (or only the most difficult paths) and out of
reasonable hiking range. If you're not into horses (or dirt bikes in some places), there
is really only one other way to get there... Mountain Bikes.
The selection of Mountain Bikes that are now available online has exploded over the last few years! Whether you are looking for the popular all around Full Suspension Cross Country Bike for the trails near you, an All Mountain Bike, or Hardtail 29er they can all be found easily online (if you know where to go).
At About-Bicycles we have researched and selected
the best online mountain bicycle and bicycle accessory resources to help you find
a great selection of bicycles and bicycle accessories online fast and easy and at great

A note on mountain bike sales
Mongoose and Schwinn build some quality mountain bikes but they also sell low end models that they build specifically for big box stores (like Wal-Mart). Although we have reviewed and recommended some department store bikes in other categories (comfort, hybrid, road, etc.) we DO NOT recommend their low end mountain bikes.
Mountain bikes need to be able to handle much more difficult situations that other bike types and a cheap mountain bike is just going to cause you a lot of problems.
Also, many of the bicycle sites that you find on the
internet will have good information, detailed descriptions and sometimes prices for the bicycles that they manufacture
or sell but will not actually sell the bicycles online. Instead they will refer you to a
local dealer or one of their own bike shops.
The online resources referenced on our site do have many bikes for sale online. For example: GT, Rocky Mountain, Yeti, Santa Cruz, Ellsworth, Schwinn, Cannondale, Raleigh, Huffy, and Mongoose are some (but not all) of
the name brands that you can actually buy online. Some brands (like Cannondale, for example) can be ordered on line but must be shipped to a local shop.
Other brand names, such as Trek, Giant, Gary Fisher and Specialized are high quality, popular brand names, but if you
are searching the internet to find these brands of bicycles for sale online, you will most likely
just find references to their approved dealers or used bikes. If you are looking for these or other higher end bikes you'll most likely have to check out a local bike shop or you could try ebay or craigs list.
Computers (bike speedometers, odometers) A good cyclecomputer is one of the most
useful and interesting accessories that you can have on your bike. Speedometer, Odometer,
Trip Meter, Date and Time, Riding time vs Elapsed time, averages... Many wireless models
are available too!
Bicycle Bags Good bicycle
bags (cycle bags, packs and racks, panniers (bicycle saddle bags)) are essential for
trails, distance, touring and utility rides. I have always found that a basic behind or
under the seat pack works very well for typical rides (trials, quick trips, etc.).
Accessories Having the right bicycle accessories available when you need them makes
the difference between just another ride and a ride that you don't really want to end.
(bicycle lights, bags, mirrors, hydration packs and water bottles, locks, car racks...)
Bike Parts If you ride bikes, you are going to be needing
bicycle tires, tubes, bicycle wheels, cables, chains
and chain cleaner kits, brake shoes and other bicycle parts and accessories pretty regularly. Here are some great online
See Online Bike Stores - for a complete listing of where to purchase the most popular brands for all bike types online.
