Well, hold on.
I’ve been riding bikes for years, mainly mountain-, hybrid- and road bikes. I know the advantages and disadvantages of every type. Also quite a lot of different brands. I started to give advice to my friends and now I’m here. Bike reviews on this page have helped over 5,000 people choose bikes according to their likes and dislike!
