Whenever we think of mountain biking, the first thing we care about is to choose the most suitable bike for us. As a matter of fact, there are a variety of purposes of using a bike, such as to exercise workout or to get some fresh air. Therefore, we will give you some suggestion to select a good bike for the mountain biking activity.
1. The Size
Firstly, you should check the size of the bike carefully when looking for a mountain bike. The frame size of 18 is designed for users from 1m75 and above while the frame size of 16 or 17 is designed for lower ones. This size is the height of the chassis (when not mounted the saddle). The men should use the framework of alignment on the large landscape to create strong style. And the women are quite fit with the bike having a large cross-aligned size of the horizontal line to facilitate their moving in a gently and gracefully way.
2. The Color
The white color of the bike will bring to the user a powerful, clean and healthy demeanor. However, some people prefer to choose the color according to the geomancy. This is your personal choice. Please keep in mind that you are looking for a mountain bike, your bike will be easily dirty and scratched. Thus, our suggestion is to choose the black or dark color, especially if you are lazy in washing it. Besides, the black bike will give you an unobtrusive and gentle image.
3. Auxiliary Equipment
Due to the mountain bike is a vehicle type, the user should mount additional auxiliary equipment for it like mechanical bells or electrical bells, flashlights and headlights to use when traveling. They will help you be able to avoid some unnecessary accidents when mountain biking.
4. Differentiation with Other Types of Bikes
Basically, there are 3 types of bikes: Road (racing bike), BMX and Trails (requires technique, in favor of performance) and MTB (Mountain bikes).
If you only need to move around the city, the most appropriate vehicle is Road. However, this type of bike cannot move in the bad terrain. Adversely, mountain bikes may not be flexible in the city, but are ready to meet all road conditions. With the healthy and strong appearance, mountain bikes are selected by the majority of people for amateur cycling activities.
As a rudimental means of transportation, you should pay more attention in your bicycles when going out. You can practice troubleshooting skills in advance to fix minor damages such as calibration brakes, removing spray tires, chain slipped, fell pedal, etc. You can equip your mountain bikes with some tools for this purpose.
