Mercedes has been releasing a range of bikes for some years now and for 2011, the German carmaker has released its range of two-wheeled conveyances for all members of the family and for use on whatever terrain suits your fancy.

Off-road bikers will appreciate Mercedes’ all-mountain specific bike, equipped with a Fox Racing F32 RL suspension fork paired to a rear DT Swiss suspension strut. Both ends are graced with 120mm of suspension travel and a SRAM X9 geartrain provids a selection of 30-speeds to handle any terrain. AVID Elixir 5 hydraulic disc and a Swiss X1900 wheelset make up the rolling components. For road junkies, Mercedes offers a carbon fiber bike with an overall weight of only 6.8 kilos. Available in sizes from 49, 53, 56, and 61 cm, these bikes have a production run of only 100 and are reportedly used by F1 drivers Schumacher and Rosberg as part of their training regimen.

Not everybody wants to hammer on a bike, so there is also a touring bike with a Suntour lockout-capable fork, mudguards, rear rack and a Busch & Müller light system powered by a Shimano hub dynamo. This model is available in 48, 51 and 54 cm. This bike would be a nice adult bike for the parent who chooses to accompany his or her kid on their Mercedes bikes, which are intended for kids up to 6 years. Available in white, red metallic and pink metallic, this bike can be converted into a straddler bike for the younger tots. Mercedes also offers matching clothing developed in cooperation with Deuter Sport, Uvex, Topeak and Sigma Sport.
