Mountain biking is different from road biking in the sense of the word – the rugged trails. Whether you are a beginner mountain biker or switching disciplines, you’d want the best bang for your buck with a good performance bike.

We have tested 3 entry-level mountain bikes that you can buy in Singapore bike shops around the $1500 range. The ingredients that went into our selection include quality of components and frame versus the dollar value, their performance and their ability to tackle the very terrain these bikes were built for: the trails.

Experience level doesn’t matter here. If you are looking to pick up mountain biking or switching gears into the discipline, do have a go at our selections.
