Mountain Bike, Parts, and Road

Mountain Bike

Hello and welcome to! Here we strive to provide you with up-to-date pertinent information on the development and culture surrounding the multiplicity of mountain bike parts and options are available to the average customer. In the modern age of digitized information there is an abundance of articles, papers, and magazines to look into. However, most of them have a specific angle or slant that they impart throughout their piece and more flagrantly a single product their wish to push on you. At we find this practice to be a misuse of the potential for public reading. As anyone can read this website, we feel that it is important to be certain that everything we write is accurate and devoid of a slant or bias. You can find this for yourself by checking out our articles and examining them for yourself.

The dawn of the mountain bike can be traced to the 1981 mass production of the first mountain bike by Specialized. They introduced the “Stumpjumper” in that year and it included a more capable frame and pedaling system in a cheaper fashion than the customized mountain bikes of that time. Since then, mountain biking has been increasing in popularity across the globe with competitions in several continents on the basis of different biking systems and scoring guides as well as racing times. The extreme downhill biking is a category that has had the most recent development because of the accelerated invention of rear shocks since 2006 and the multipoint invisible suspension system.

There are several different factors in the making of a successful bike. First you need a lightweight material, for all applications. Since mountain biking is inherently a dangerous sport where the goal is to traverse rugged terrain, you need a nimble mountain bike that is made of incredibly strong parts that can accept the abuse and brunt of a bumpy road. For this reason, aluminum is still used in the lower end scale as it is strong and lightweight. Modern innovation into different composites produces a new frame material practically every month. The next necessity is a good suspension system. Between the frame and the suspension system that is almost all of the differentiation.

There is some alterations to the seat position dependant on the style of mountain bike riding that you are looking to do. Since the most efficient method of pedaling id directly perpendicular to the seat, as found in road biking, the more upright the seat is, or closer to 90 degrees, the more the bike is meant to traverse long distances. The more the seat is relaxed and angled backwards, the more that bike is designed for hardcore downhill stress tests. The rest of the frame and parts are angled in the same way as the seat in order to maximize, in one case, the efficiency of the pedaling, in the other case, the durability of the frame to absorb and deflect the impacts along the ground and the suspension.

Most of the time there are few parts to a bike. If you cut the break system, gear system, and ball bearings for turning, there are almost no moving parts. Pressure systems in the breaks and gears provoke movement in changing gears or the clenching the rim of the tire, or in recent bikes, the disc around the wheel.
