What I disagree with is that it is pretty much necessary
to transport a mountain bike to an environment in which it was intended for to be enjoyed. Which isnt the case. I never needed
to transport my MTB to the wilderness to ride it, I rode to the wilderness, rode that and then rode home again.
Mountain bikes are also known as all terrain bikes, which sums up their uses. I used mine for travelling to work 15 miles both ways 5 days a week in every weather you could get in the UK and then at the weekend it (and the others) was used for training rides, rides with the bike club and even raced. All on the same knobbly tyres.
To suggest that an MTB cant be used on tarmaced roads is like saying a touring bike cant be used for daily rides or pootling about because it isnt touring.
Apologies to the op for taking the subject off topic.
