All of the Different Types of Bicycles—Explained

Looking for a new bike? There’s probably never been a better time to buy one. In the past decade, bikes have gotten more functional, more reliable, and more fun to ride. That’s partly because the variety has bloomed from a few basic styles (e.g. road, mountain, city) to now include all manner of niches and categories-within-categories, as bike makers diversify their offerings to appeal to the many ways that people enjoy riding.

Here’s how to clean your bike in seven simple steps.
