Yes you could, Some seats are designed specifically for the right posture and style to match each bike. By replacing it with one that’s more comfortable would mean the style would change, not to forget the posture change to be kept in mind.
Handlebars play an important role in a bike.
They often support a portion of the rider’s weight and provide a mounting place for brake levers, bells, horns and levers. By changing the handlebar, it could eliminate space for levers and other accessories that were originally designed for that specific bike model.
The most common types of handlebars are flat, cross brace, cruiser etc.
Cross brace : these are generally fitted on BMX bikes for rigidity and strength.
Flat : are the one’s fitted in hybrid bikes, hardtail, dual suspension and most common bikes used for leisure cycling.
Cruiser : are designed with a long and sloped design towards the rear of the bicycle which allows the rider to sit upright. Traditional bikes have a lower rise handlebar similar to the cruiser which allows easy riding.
The truth is you don’t really need gears. The original bicycle has no gears, and over time gear speeds have changed from 15, 18, 21 and now 27! Gears are useful for roads with hills, the steeper it is, the lower the gear you need to make it easier to peddle.
The more gears you have, the steeper the slope you can climb!
These both do the same job, by helping you stop the bike when you need it. Disc brakes however are more efficient in mud and dirt terrain whereas the V-brake is applied onto the rim which could find it hard to be effective in these off-road terrains.
