Mountain biking is a sport where people go very fast on bicycles up, and down mountains on rugged trails crossing streams, logs, rock drops, and other high speed obstacles. These Bicycles used for this sport do not dub well as urban, commuter bikes, or road bikes. They are made specifically for Mountain Biking. If you are interested in beginning to mountain bike, the Calypso is not the bicycle for you. Hence the name Calypso, it may be a good bike for a resident of the city of New Orleans, rather than say, Boulder CO. If you are interested in cruising town (not road biking), taking trails and shortcuts when you want to; and possibly going trail riding on saturdays with friends, then you have purchased the perfect bike.
