Sometimes referred to as a 29'er, Dual Track has its roots in mountain biking but in reality the design is more off-road hybrid than mtb. Using 700c road rims instead of traditional 26 inch wheels, the Dual Track's larger tyres give the bike a longer contact patch for improved traction whilst rolling over lumps and bumps more smoothly
Specified with a straight bladed Cro-Moly fork, both models use a 48 tooth triple chainset for fast road riding, whilst having the additional benefit of wide ratio mountain bike gearing to cope with nature's undulations out on the trail
Larsen Mimo tyres, triple density lock-on grips and a Kevlar reinforced saddle complete the package. A Ridgeback Dual Track is tough urban commuter, towpath bike and non-suspension mtb and is the latest and most practical embodiment of the 29'er or large wheel trail bike concept

What is a Hybrid Classic Bike?
A bike primarily designed for leisure use which is a cross between a road bike and a mountain bike. It has 700c wheels (same diameter as road) but with wider, treaded tyres which can cope with a small amount of non tarmac riding. Can be supplied with either a rigid or suspension front fork for added comfort and are sometimes supplied with mudguards and carrier racks as standard ideal for short commutes or popping to the local shop.
