At Westbrook Cycles, we are proud to stock and supply an excellent range of alloy mountain bikes - which are mountain bikes, with an aluminium/alloy frame. One of the most common and popular choices for mountain bikers, aluminium framed bikes are sensible priced, tough - yet still lightweight enough for great performance.
One of the most popular choices for a few reasons, we sell a massive number of alloy mountain bikes. Customers do however, usually consider some alternatives to an alloy mountain bike, which includes carbon fibre mountain bikes, as well as steel framed mountain bikes.
Steel Mountain Bikes are pretty heavy things, so the choice of frame material is usually contested between either alloy or carbon fibre. With the choice between the two materials being incredibly close, riders can enjoy the same geometry and designs of a carbon fibre bike, with a bike which uses aluminium - allowing the rider benefit to cutting edge designs, with a frame material which puts more money in your back pocket.
Alloy Mountain Bikes can be purchased in both full suspension and hardtail setups. Alloy is a fantastic choice for customers wanting a full suspension mountain bike, as when riding down trails - alloy is less susceptible to damage if (or when) there is a fall. Some of the brands of Aluminium framed Mountain Bikes that we supply include Giant, Scott, GT and Pivot.
You can browse the full range above - and if you have any questions about the right mountain bike for your requirements - please do get in touch. Mountain Bike is one of the most diverse type of cycling there is, so it’s important that you choose the right bike for your requirements, otherwise you can find yourself riding a downhill bias bike uphill, and vice versa!
All of our team have had extensive training across all mountain bike brands we supply, and most of us ride mountain bikes on a weekly basis.
