What type of bicycle?
#1
Well the attachments is the bicycle that I own...

What type of bicycle is this, I've been for quite a long time..

I'm pretty sure mountain bikes have wider tyres and rims, whereas mine is 1.95?

Is this a road bike?
Or a mountain bike?

Is this a bike suitable to do stunts on or not?

Thanks Smile

you have a Mountain Bike.

Stunts are done on BMX type bikes. Suspension is a deterrent to stunts.

Typical BMX bike: http://www.amazon.com/Diamondback-Grind-Bike-Blue-20-Inch/dp/B0041RXMEY/

Typical Road bike: http://www.amazon.com/Schwinn-Laguna-Mens-Road-Medium/dp/B001D2RMZ0/
usually have drop bars like this one.

Typical Hybrid: http://www.amazon.com/Schwinn-Midmoor-Mens-Hybrid-Wheels/dp/B0030U8SGU/
many do not have suspension, unlike this one.
