My wife and I are looking to get into beginner level downhill mountain biking. Looking at the green trails at places like Blue Mountain in Ontario, or the green trails at Sun Peaks in BC.
I currently have a 2015 Giant Roam 2 and my wife has a Trek Neko, both the hybrid bikes.
My question is: can these bikes handle basic beginner level downhill mountain bike courses? Or are the wheels/tires too fragile? Can the wheels be switched out easily with more appropriate wheels just for downhilling?
I'm all for us getting some full suspension downhill geared bikes once we start doing more serious biking, but for now just wondering what the capabilities of our existing bikes are and if it's enough to get us into the sport.
