How Many Strokes?

Matters Of The Size

It really depends on how your frame fits on the bike. Height, weight, everything. There are many strong vehicles with fancy handles out there, but how long and far will you be comfortable sitting on them?

Basically, keep in mind these very factors before you choose any off-road vehicles. Just know that there are many options out there, from the least to most expensive. Off road vehicles can be quite attractive, but necessity is what should make you invest in them.
