A rider's demands on his bike are as different as people can be. Above all, the intended use plays a decisive role. Should the bike primarily be used for longer tours in moderate terrain? On the ride to work or on the much-cited Sunday trip to the ice cream parlour? Or is the bike primarily seen as a piece of sports equipment with which you can bang through the forest, raid over trails and shoot up and down the mountains? In addition to the bike's equipment, i.e. chassis, brakes and drivetrain, it is above all the basic design of the frame geometry that sets the tone here.
