10 Best Mountain Bikes of 2012

It's good to be picky when you're buying a bike. Here's our list of drool-enducing two-wheeler favorites from 2012. The toughest part about your shopping experience: Choosing just one.

Jones Titanium Spaceframe singlespeed 29er

Jones’ strange-looking singlespeed, unsuspended mountain bike doesn’t appear at first glance to be a desirable mount for rough trails. But designer Jeff Jones created the Titanium Spaceframe singlespeed 29er with simplicity and smoothness in mind to build one of the best-handling rigid off-road bikes you’ll find. The bike’s geometry promotes efficient, precise riding that responds immediately to a rider’s every movement. The truss front fork and loop handlebars (with two available hand positions) offer spot-on steering, while the plush 29-inch wheels yield a surprisingly cushy ride. This bike will get strange looks, but the unique construction makes for pure, fun riding. ($6,199; jonesbikes.com)
