How to Buy a Mountain Bike

Buy a bicycle Mountain Bike model, may seem simple but it is not. There are so many “variables” to consider but not to worry: few rules and you too can free you from interminable queues by car and with due prudence, have fun doing tours cycling along country roads or trails in the nature. But now we see how to buy a Mountain Bike.

The first step to do to buy your Mountain Bike is deciding what kind of bike you need to take your cycling adventure.

Generally each discipline has its own type of MTB, in each case are divided into Front-suspended (suspension bike front foot only) and full suspension (bike suspension both front and rear) with mechanical and hydraulic disc brakes or v-brakes.

There are 3 types of disciplines that you may face with a mountain bike.
1-Cross Country is a sport where endurance is very important where you have varied terrain, both uphill and downhill. Generally using front-suspension bikes with a range of 80-100 mm.

2-Trail
More than one discipline is a hobby, you use very similar MTB cross country except that are more comfortable for longer trips, such as well on paved roads.

3-All mountain (enduro)
Discipline more thrust than the 2 we saw but generally similar.
Meet the most technical trails and mostly downhill so need more robust and full-suspension bike with hydraulic disc brakes 180 mm or greater and a hike of forks that can range from 140 to 200 mm. The change must be at least 27 speed to ensure steepest climbs.

The second step is to look around in the world of Mountain biking, given the growing number of manufacturers and assemblers that invade the market, proposing technical solutions of all kinds. Are you on the simple things. Ask a good frame and estimates that this will be the most important choice you make.
Size must correspond to your size, then fitted with a meter the distance in centimeters between foot and horse and multiplied by the coefficient 0.21. The result in inches will be a good indication for the size of the frame.

Pay attention to the quality of the technical components. The change, for example, you need to evaluate it, and to do that there is only one way: climb into the bike and make sure it’s simple and precise when inserting. In addition, evaluates the strength of frame and rims. A Mountain Bike that will “fold” at the first hole, or an oval rim do not serve to make your off-road outing enjoyable. The price becomes important: a bicycle of low quality will tend to break down frequently, while a too advanced and expensive, can create problems because of sophisticated adjustments.
