"How heavy is your bike?" This question may have been asked by many people, but does a mountain bike be good if it is light? Does the weight of the bike really mean that the bike is poor? Does the quality of your ride depend entirely on the weight of the bike? Or should we completely stop pursuing the stupid behavior of lightweight?
Light means it is a good bike, and a heavy one means it is a low-end bike. This is a saying that bicycles have been circulating for decades. Since the 1990s, this situation has continued for quite some time, and many drivers have spent a lot of time or even their lives for this, and even the handlebars will break due to daily punctures. Fortunately, due to continuous testing and production process improvement, the problem of strength and safety for many years seems to have been resolved. However, the importance of the weight surface has not diminished.
Mountain bikes, as the name suggests, are more suitable for cycling on mountainous and rugged roads. The frame of mountain bikes is more rugged, strong, and has better shock absorption performance. Mountain bikes have front fork shock absorbers, and some have rear shock absorbers. Wide cycling comfort is higher, generally wider straight handles are used, and the handling is better, but the resistance is relatively large and the speed is relatively slow when cycling. Road bikes are mainly used for cycling on highways or on relatively flat roads. In order to increase speed and reduce wind resistance, the frame is relatively slender. Generally, there is no shock absorption mechanism. The bending handles are used. When cycling, you need to lean down, the seat is narrow and long, and the cycling comfort is Slightly inferior to mountain bikes, but cycling faster and faster.
Bikers who often ride mountain bikes cross country know that in the process of cycling, the three-disc configuration is actually not very useful. Take me as an example. In the era of 3 discs, I would basically use the big disc to ride on the road, the middle disc for climbing or cross-country. For the adjustment of the front and rear speed ratio, I used more on the rear derailleur. It is not needed because it is too "light" and it feels like kicking in the air. And in use, the 3-disk system will have a lot of overlap between the front and rear speed ratios, which is actually too redundant.
The width, angle, and elevation of the handlebar directly affect the handling and comfort of the bicycle. So, is the width and angle of the handlebar really important? Below, we will talk about how to correctly choose the width and angle of the handlebar through the three most common types of mountain bikes.

Electric bicycles are becoming more and more popular in today's bicycle circle. In European and American countries, the field of electric-assisted mountain bikes has reached a relatively mature stage after a period of development. More and more cyclists are showing interest in electric-assisted mountain bikes, so how do we ride electric-powered mountain bikes correctly? What are the techniques for cycling electric mountain bikes?
The Cycling mountain bike has always been a game for the brave. It is common to see cyclists shouting "Don't counsel, just do it!" to encourage novices to take risks. The result is "Crash-Fracture-Sell the bicycle-Retreat" Are the ideas that have been passed down in the Cycling mountain bike circle right? Today we will break them one by one!
As mountain bikes are often cycling o the rugged and uneven road, requiring athletes to master certain mountain bike cross-country skills in order to deal with them safely. The following are some summary of some practical mountain bike cross-country skills, quickly collect them.
To truly have good endurance, you need to use most of the energy reserves in your body.
There are glycogen (carbohydrates) in muscle and liver, glucose in the blood, triglycerides (fat) in muscle, and the largest energy reserve: body fat.
This energy is your fuel tank to keep riding a bike. Excessive lactic acid or lack of oxygen supply will stop you. Conversely, when you run out of glycogen in your muscles, low liver glycogen or low blood sugar levels are the reason why you stop in the attack.
For those who are not very proficient in riding mountain bikes, what is the normal posture?
The upper body is low, looking down a bit, looking down 10 meters on the road ahead, with the head slightly inclined forward;
The two hands should be bent naturally, not too straight. If the two hands are too straight, the hands will be numb and tired, and the hands will bend, which is convenient for bowing at the waist, lowering the body's center of gravity, and preventing the impact caused by the bumps of the car from being transmitted to the whole body; Both hands held the handlebars lightly and forcefully, and seated the seat firmly.

The function of bicycle helmets to protect the lives of cyclists is beyond doubt. According to the report of the American Highway Safety Insurance Research: 98% of the deaths from cycling in the United States in 1999 did not wear a helmet, and those wearing helmets in collision accidents reduced their risk of serious head injuries by 85%. Not only does the helmet feel cool, but it's also really cool, at the same time, the ventilation holes on the helmet can make the head feel cooler. As an old saying goes, a clear head is easier to win the game.
Road riders need long-term stable power output. However, due to the diverse and constantly changing road conditions in our mountain bike races, mountain bikers often need a period of continuous high power output, and they often stop pedaling before and after this period of strong output. Or step on lightly to slow down, or pass obstacles.
I generally do not recommend riders to install foot supports, especially riders who like high-speed riding and off-road. When parking, please tilt your bicycle down to the left. Note: It must be the left side, because there is a fragile rear derailleur on the right side of the bike, and the bike is placed down to the left so that you can pick up the bike and step up from the left side (there are not many left-handers, right?)! There are also friends equipped with disc brakes when you put your bike down to the left, pay attention to the disc not to hit the protrusions on the ground to prevent the disc from being deformed by external forces.
1. The mudguard is basically ineffective in riding activities.
2. The mudguard will increase energy consumption during riding activities.
3. will increase the probability of failure. Therefore, this type of mountain bike does not require mudguards. If the subject is only doing slow riding on general roads, you can use a station wagon.
4. The hidden safety hazards of mudguards: general mudguards are made thin and wide, and the materials are mostly steel, aluminum, plastic, resin, and other materials with certain hardness. It's like a knife without a blade. In other words, it is a sharp protrusion on a vehicle. When the cyclist accidentally crashed, the kinetic energy is very large at this time. This sharp protrusion is very easy to cut your skin under the huge kinetic energy, especially in the summer when the riders wear very little and their bodies are exposed. The parts are many.
