What to consider when buying a mountain bike

What type of riding do you do?

As an example, Enduro bikes are great for descending at speed but might be overkill for trail riding.

It’s important to be clear early on which routes you plan to ride and what kind of terrain you want to ride the bike on.

This will help you decide which category of bike you need, from a lightweight, short-travel cross-country bike to a sturdy, chunky downhill road bike. 

We’ll cover each of these in detail later – you can skip ahead to our section on the different types of mountain bike – otherwise, let’s start at the very beginning.

Your bike is a collection of moving parts. When exposed to mud, grime and debris, these parts begin to deteriorate. A regular schedule of maintenance (monthly, weekly or more often depending on your type of riding) is important.
