What is a 27 speed mountain bike?
So a 27 speed bike (from the 1990’s or 2000’s) would have 3 chain rings on the front and 9 cogs on the back. That would give you a low enough low gear to climb a very steep hill and a high gear that could allow you to go very fast with a strong wind behind you without pedaling very fast.
Is a 27.5 or 29er better?
27.5 in. wheels have faster acceleration while 29ers are more efficient on longer rides. Larger wheels place the weight of the spokes, rims, tubes and tires farther from the center of the wheel, resulting in higher rotational mass and slower acceleration.
What are 27.5 tires good for?
The 27.5-inch tires also offer riders a lighter-weight wheel and tire combination, allowing for quicker acceleration out of corners. The plus-size bike can go into corners faster without sliding, but its heavier weight could prevent a racer from making up that speed out of the turns.
