    Sport comfort bike

    You may want to look at a class of bicycle called the "Sport Comfort" - a mountain bike with a more upright seating scheme and all the components rigged for off-road use.

    A set of semi-knobbies or the new knobbies with a thin track in the center for hard surfaces can make all the difference in loose soil.

    If you face mud, sand or deep snow, then you may wish to look at a 'pug' (Pugsley or Surly brand) style (offset) bike with the very wide tires.

    This fellow seems to have all the bases covered.

    Very popular here in the mud

    And the snow
