The mountain bike allows you to ride in forests and on dirt roads, but the sporty position on a mountain bike is less comfortable than on a touring bike. The touring bike, with its large wheels and thin tyres, is more comfortable to ride. It is suited to developed terrain: tarmac roads, greenways, towpaths, etc.

All our touring bikes and most of our mountain bikes are fitted with them. If you need a luggage rack on a mountain bike, don't hesitate to let us know when you order so that we can make sure you get a model with a luggage rack.

The presence of bottle cages on electric-assist bikes depends on the model of bike. Finally, children's bikes do not have luggage racks or bottle cages. If you have a specific request, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will do our best to meet your requirements.

It is forbidden to transport animals in children's trailers.  We have a trailer specifically adapted for animals. Contact us for more information.
