BMW presents their own Mountainbike All Mountain. Weird name!


If you want to have one of the best, more efficient and healthier means of transport, you need to have a bicycle. There are dozens of manufacturers, for example, Corratec, Specialized, Trek, Merida, etc, but car companies are getting in the business too. A example of this is BMW that introduced the Mountainbike All Mountain.

BMW joined a unknown "German mountain bike specialist", and created a bike for freeriders, trail enthusiasts, mountain bikers and relaxed cruisers alike. This full-suspension bike has a hydro-formed and powder-coated aluminum frame and is equipped with Shimano XT parts.

With the extensive use of carbon fiber by bike companies, it is weird BMW choose aluminum, meaning it weighs 13.4kg (29.54lbs) when a carbon fiber bike can weigh around 10kg (22lbs). A difference that you can feel when riding.

The bike is available at selected dealers and online at www.bmw-shop.com in the sports collection of the BMW 2013/2014 lifestyle catalog, together with other bikes like the BMW Cruise Bike 2013, Touring Bike 2013, and the BMW M Bike Carbon Racer.
