Which country’s mountain bikes have the fastest acceleration?
Bike parts specialist BikeParts.com is putting the brakes on its mountain bike competition with its latest release, the Indoor Speed Racer, and it’s not going for the cheap with its pricier competitors.
The IndoorSpeed Racer, which is available as a mountain bike kit, features a carbon fibre frame, an aluminium fork, a carbon hub and a single disc brake.
The bikes are priced at £6,799 ($9,400 USD) and £8,999 ($11,200 USD) respectively.
While the Indoorspeed Racer is certainly a step up from the competition, the difference between it and the competitors is not as drastic as it could be, according to BikeParts senior sales manager Adam Pazner.
“The Indoourspeed Racer’s frame is the most light, with a carbon fork, which offers the most stability, as well as offering the most stiffness, while the frame’s carbon hub gives it the greatest responsiveness,” he said.
“Also, the frame is lightweight, and has a carbon bottom bracket which is the strongest part of the bike, so it has a lighter weight and a stiffer structure.”
BikeParts also offers the IndoraSpeed Racer as a kit, which features a steel frame, a frame mount with a dual disc brake, a tubeless tubeless tire and a tubular rear hub.
While this kit is light on parts and has the lowest price tag, the bikes are heavier and therefore much heavier than the competition.
The IndoraStats Racer is priced at $7,899 ($11.200 USD).
The IndorspeedRacer is not the only bike that offers a mountainbike kit.
There are also two versions of the Indorastore Indoor Road Racer, with the latter priced at €8,199 ($12,400) and €9,399 ($14,200).
The bikes come with a Shimano SLX drivetrain and a disc brakes, but the IndospeedRacers are the only mountain bikes that can be fitted with a tubed front hub.
“If you want a more aggressive bike, the Shimano and the SLX have the best braking performance and the best comfort,” Pazener said.
“You can’t go wrong with either of these bikes.
However, they’re also quite expensive.”
Bikes from BikeParts are not limited to just the UK.
The company is also in the process of launching a series of mountain bike parts in India.
Bikes are priced from Rs 3,999 to Rs 6,999 depending on the model, with bikes from the Indocare line priced from ₹1,000 ($2,800) to ₨1,999.
The company said the Indore and IndoreStatsRacer are not available for purchase at this time.
