    Mountain bikes, as the name suggests, are more suitable for cycling on mountainous and rugged roads. The frame of mountain bikes is more rugged, strong, and has better shock absorption performance. Mountain bikes have front fork shock absorbers, and some have rear shock absorbers. Wide cycling comfort is higher, generally wider straight handles are used, and the handling is better, but the resistance is relatively large and the speed is relatively slow when cycling. Road bikes are mainly used for cycling on highways or on relatively flat roads. In order to increase speed and reduce wind resistance, the frame is relatively slender. Generally, there is no shock absorption mechanism. The bending handles are used. When cycling, you need to lean down, the seat is narrow and long, and the cycling comfort is Slightly inferior to mountain bikes, but cycling faster and faster.
