Hardtail mountain bikes with 26-inch wheels are often described as bikes for beginners. However, hardtail bikes with the classic 26-inch wheel size have a long history and nowadays offer in part quite high-quality equipment. Of course you can also find models at a good price, in the price class from €300 to €500. Most of the time, these bikes already have an aluminium frame, Shimano or Sram shifting components, and often even disc brakes. Whether a 26-inch cross-country hardtail bike or a light carbon hardtail bike 26", there are enough options here. Even as hardtail racing bikes usually have larger wheels nowadays, shorter people and women with shorter standover height enjoy the advantages of 26'' bikes. Obviously several manufacturers such as Trek, Specialized or Bergamont have special models for women in their selections. Not to be forgotten are the 26'' tandem bikes in our offer. With them, you can relax and enjoy mountain bike trips for two and you will stand out in any case.
Are you dissatisfied with the handling of your bike or do you simply want to try something new? The wheel size of 27.5 inches or 650B is the balance between the classic 26" wheels and the 29-inch ones. A 27.5-inch hardtail bike offers the mountain biker the advantages of its "little" and "big" brothers. It has a highly smooth ride and at the same time incredible maneuverability on the narrow, interlocking trails in the woods. A hardtail bike with the wheel size of 650B offers, among others, short cross-country bikers and women the opportunity to enjoy the advantages of the bigger wheel diameter. The range of options for the 27.5-inch hardtail mountain bike is huge. It starts in the lower price segment and goes up to the noble full carbon hardtail racing bikes from top brands like Specialized, Trek or Storck.
You are looking for a dirt mountain bike or a dual hardtail? Then you are in the right place. The small and manoeuvrable dirt and dual bikes' applications are versatile, whether dirt jump, dual, fourcross (4X), slopestyle or pumptrack. It is important that the dirt bike is agile and at the same time stable, but also not too heavy. You'll find them almost exclusively with aluminium or steel frames, they will withstand even failed tricks and jumps in most cases without any damages. The compact construction does not only provide freedom of movement for tricks and moves, but also makes the dual/dirt bikes more stable. Aside from the mostly standard disc brake mount, some of the models also feature chainguard mounts (ISCG). Horizontal drop-outs also provide the option to build up the bike with single speed due to the possibility of adjustment. Whatever application you need your new dirt hardtail bike for, whether dirt jump, dual bike, fourcross or rather slopestyle and pumptrack bike, you'll find the fitting bicycle here in the shop for dirt bikes. Tip: You'll find freeriders & full suspension dirt bikes here.
Pedelecs, the so-called electrical bikes, are the ideal supplement to the modern range of bikes. Bikes with electrical drivetrain are very popular because they are really fast. Furthermore, they provide the advantage of being able to transport loads without too much of an effort. Owing to the support, it is feasible to easily manage distances of 40 kilometres or more. It has been clear for a while that the electrical bikes no longer carry the image of a means of transport for retirees - they are modern, urban vehicles. Whether you need to go shopping or whether you need to get to a business appointment downtown, with the electrical bike, you'll pass any tailback, reach your destination quickly and everything in connection with some sportive activity! But only as much sport as you wish, since you can choose the degree of support you want to set your bike to. This means that it is your decision whether it will become a sportive or a more comfortable tour. An electrical bike in this category can be either a trekking bike with a drivetrain or the more comfortable women's bike with low entry. They distinguish themselves from the application and build of a mountain bike, which has become available as an electrical variant in the meantime as well. We carry bikes with different drive systems. Bosch among others distinguishes its motors as Bosch Classic, Bosch Drive Unit Active Cruise or Performance Line. With the Turbo, Specialized offers its own drivetrain system with back wheel hub motor and 1,000 W peak power and a 504 Wh battery. With the best acceleration of all our bikes and an uncomplicated sportive riding behaviour, the Turbo is at the top of our bikes. Discover for yourself our offer of bikes with electric gear, at favourable prices online here in our shop for electrical bikes and pedelecs.
Individualists prefer to build up the road bike according to their own wishes and not to buy off the shelf. You'll find the matching road bike frame (or a frame kit) for your planned project here in our shop for road bike frames at low prices, since the frame is the start, your basis for your road bike. This basis can be of the main material aluminium, carbon, steel or also titanium, which is a question of the weight and the price. Here, you'll find not only road bike frames, but also frames for triathlon bikes, for everyone who likes it especially fast and, in the best case, aerodynamically optimised.

Buy 27.5 inch frame sets, perfect for individualists
Perfect for the terrain, off the beaten path of gravelled tracks, where roots and rubble are all over, this is where 27.5 inch full suspension bikes are at home, and this is what they are made for. A 27.5 inch full suspension bike frame (also known as 650B size), unites two arguments in one single wheel size: It scores with the manoeuvrability of the smaller 26 inch bikes and at the same time with the running smoothness of a 29 inch bike. The whole thus results in a perfect trail bike for fun in the off-road terrain!
And as it emerges on the market at present, the 27.5 inch full suspension bike frames will probably replace the smaller 26 inch frames, which are less seldom represented. No wonder wich these arguments!
Your decision should be based on the application for your new dream bike. Do you want to build up a fast, light full suspension race bike with the frame or is it supposed to be a real fun machine with a little more travel? Since the travel the manufacturers are offering with the 27.5 inch full suspension bikes, do not leave any wishes open, from the sporty 120 mm for cross-country / racing applications up to the 150 mm for enduro frames, everything is available.
Then you'll have to decide on the right material: Light and robust aluminium frames are used as well as also carbon frames for light-construction projects, which certainly don't want to do without a suspension. At this point, we would like to mention again that the MTB full suspension bike frames of course come in a set with rear section and shock. The partially quite complex rear-end systems naturally are adjusted to the corresponding frame geometry and would not perfectly work with individual solutions in the worst case.
Don't wonder about the different designations carried by bikes with a wheel size of 27.5 inch. They are also designated as 650B size, which actually are nothing more than the new standardised bike sizes "between" 26 and 29 inch. Convincing arguments for the intermediate size are that they score with the manoeuvrability of a 26 inch bike and the smoothness of a 29 inch bike. The bike frame is the cornerstone of your 27.5 inch bike. With a frame / frame kit you'll show individuality and you do not use a bike off the shelf. Thus, it is totally up to you with which components you'll build up your bike (of course dependent on the available components which need to match the medium size of your new hardtail). 650B / 27.5 inch frames are being used from enduros, all-mountain bikes up to race bikes. Once you have decided on the "inch question", we would like to give you some more reasons to go for a hardtail: You'll choose a hardtail if you do not place any emphasis on the comfort of a suspended rear and that you are happy to do without. Hardtail riders also love the cleaner optics of the biker frame, which gets well along without any knickknacks. Less maintenance efforts also speaks in favour of a hardtail. For whichever reason you make the decision for a 27.5 hardtail frame, the market meanwhile offers some models with which you can make your dream bike project come true: Whether Kona, Storck, Ritchey or Lapierre, the intermediate size, which is still quite new, is very popular. With a 27.5 inch hardtail frame (650B), you'll get an agile and compact bike for your dream tours. Discover our low-price offers here online in the shop.
It has taken longer in Germany and/or Europe, in North America the advantages of the "29 inch frames" have been appreciated a lot earlier. Meanwhile, all large bike brands offer 29 inch frames, something in which noone would have believed some years ago. Mainly, cross-country racers with light, fast bikes are more and more seen with 29 inch bikes sprinting through the terrain since they have already skillfully left the smaller wheel candidates (26") behind in the hardtail segment. The reason is quickly explained: The larger 29 inch wheel size provides you with more comfort and safety in the terrain. The large wheels just swallow up any roots and bumps. Uphill you are advancing more with traction. Many who are seeking a 29 inch frame, look for exactly that, a "light" 29 inch race bike, which has been developed for fast tours or racing, because this is what the large wheels can do best. Does that apply to you? Then, you might be interested in the build-up of a carbon 29 inch bike or have you envisaged a titanium frame among the 29 inch hardtails in order to save weight? That is also why in this case, you'll have no problem to do without the additional suspension at the rear and why you'll choose the hardtail frame instead of the fully suspended one. But it does not always have to be a carbon frame, a 29 inch aluminium frame can also be light. The selection meanwhile has become quite large! You'll certainly find the matching frame of your dreams in our product range, with which you can build up the bike of your dreams. Here, in the shop for 29 inch hardtail frames, you'll find frames and frame kits from Specialized, Storck, Kona, Salsa, Surly and and and.
