There’s nothing better than flying off a rock and knowing your bike will make it through the landing. Bike maintenance is an essential piece of all biking, keeping you on the road or trail. At Drake Cycles, in Fort Collins, they offer expert advice on all aspects of biking, recommending trails, and of course some rad gear. Drake Cycles carries bikes and gear from Kona, Rocky Mountain Bicycles, Cannondale, Pure Fix Cycles, and Breezer Bikes. Make sure to check them out if you’re in need of a bike tune up or new bike!

This week we teamed up with Drake Cycles to review the Cannondale Habit 5 mountain bike. Cannondale designed this bike to be versatile, providing a comfortable ride for long distances while still allowing you to slay any downhill trail. The first impressions were good, not too flaunty with a simplistic design allowing for optimal efficiency. The climbing ability stood out as it proved effortless, crawling over over rocks on Timber Trail in Lory State Park. The downhill section of the trail really put the bike to the test. The stability while whipping around berms was very encouraging inspiring confidence while hitting the rock drops.

The Cannondale Habit is a great bike for cross country or mountain biking, it does it all and it does it all well. If you have the craving for biking get into Drake Cycles to buy or rent!
