Remember the Nineties? We all thought Oasis were cool, and we all rode mountain bikes everywhere. Thankfully the Gallagher brothers have calmed down, but there is still some sense in a basic mountain bike for shorter casual rides. It may be the balloon tires, easy gears or robust design of the Elevation that appeals to you, or the low cost. This is the least expensive adult bike sold by RCC, because frankly, bikes that cost less are designed to be disposable. This is a real bike and certainly a smart choice for casual cycling.
