Are these the world’s best mountain bikes?
It is a question that every committed mountain biker occasionally ponders, during that post-ride coffee: “what is the best bike in the world?”
The transparent answer is that no single bike can be the best at everything. Mountain biking has become too diverse in the terrain that it covers, for the existence of a unicorn bike to be true.
Remove cost from the equation and there are a collection of boutique bike brands, that build gorgeous bikes. None more so, than Unno.
The value of a small bike company, especially if directed by a talented engineer or rider, is an unrivalled ability to deliver a specific engineering vision, with very little compromise of consensus. In Unno’s case, its founder is both a brilliant engineer and an exceptional rider.
