MVMT Rider Mariah Gondeiro

How did you initially start riding and when did you start?

I started riding bikes at a young age. I was 7 when I rode a bike without training wheels.  Initially, I rode up and down my gravel road leading to my house.  As I became more experienced, I would ride on mountain trails in Montana and race friends on bike tracks.

If you had to pick the best trail anywhere in the world for cyclists, which one would you recommend and why?

It depends on the view and incline. If I want a relaxing bike ride, I would ride along the pacific coast highway overlooking the beach. However, if I want a challenging bike ride, I would ride mountain trails in Montana because I could still enjoy the nice scenery while engaging my muscles. I am a little biased towards Montana because that is my home state!  

What was it about the MVMT bike that appealed to you the most?

I like the MVMT bike because it was light and well-equipped. It contained everything I would ever need in a bike.  I could pick up speed fast, change gears quickly, all while enjoying a smooth and safe ride.

How did the MVMT bike climb?

The tires gave me good traction climbing up and down hills. Riding on a lighter bike also made it easier climbing up hill. Changing gears was effortless.

Did the MVMT perform when you had to transition from downhill to climb?

Yes, I could switch gears quickly giving me a smooth ride from downhill to climb.

How much would you expect to pay retail for a full carbon bike outfitter with these components?

I would expect to pay about $2000.
