30 Tips for Mountain Biking

Several cycling techniques are capable of being applied, both in mountain bikes (MTB) as well as racing bikes. For example, both on the highway and unpaved roads, you still have to pedal the pedals to get the bike forward. The problem is that when mountain biking you will meet using rocks, tree roots, and holes. Here are some tips to conquer it all so that you can enjoy mountain biking more:

  • Clean your bike as often as possible. This is the most important rule in caring for a bicycle. Dirt is able to erode the components when he is scattered between the components that take part.
  • If done using caution, you can wash the bike in the car wash. However, make sure the high-pressure water spray does not hit the headset, crankset, hub, or pedal exclusively cycling tips because water can enter between the pads.
  • Buy chain cleaning senses. This tool made of plastic clamps around the part based on the chain. A fluid reservoir & a series of brushes will clean the chain connection when you rotate the pedal using your hands. Its operation is very easy and effective as a result will often use it. You can get this chain cleaner at almost any bike shop.
  • Never drive a deep water hole so as to soak the crankset. The movement of the wood will create water sneaking on between the rubber bearing covers.
  • To know more about how to control this mountain bike, there is nothing better based on personally seeing the actions of MTB riders. Come to the race and walk to different parts of the track to see how they overcome the obstacles. Agau you can watch DVDs or youtube races or cycling instructions.

  • Trailing better drivers is the perfect way to learn new techniques. You can imitate without thinking, raise your religion, and know all the possibilities.
  • Momentum is your greatest ally. Being too careful only makes mountain biking more difficult. Beginners tend to slow down the bike when they see a hitch, and they lose momentum as a result of slipping, falling, and frustration. You need speed to help the wheel get through the obstacles as a result of which it does not stop or change the direction of the wheel.
  • Try paddling at night to practice reflexes and intuition. The trajectory you've been through hundreds of times will feel like a new experience after dark.
  • When you have been unable to pedal on the climb and the legs finally tread on the ground, do not give up & lead the bike up. You will learn more and as stronger as you pause, gather energy, then start pedaling back.
  • To start pedaling back on the climb, first press the front brake so that the bike does not reverse. Put the pedals on the most powerful feet in a position ready to be pushed. Release the brakes as soon as you start pressing the pedals and permanently ducking so that the front wheels are not lifted. Do not rush to use the clip pedal in the other leg. Just put your foot on the pedal until you gain momentum to take part.
  • Drive a race bike so that you as a better mountain biker. The benefits are many, including a short break based on mountain biking activities that make the heart palpitations; train speed, flexible pedal wooding; Ability to do exercises appropriately such as interval training. It also saves time, because you can start cycling based on the front of where you live. Most professional mountain bikers spend up to 80 percent of their workouts on a race bike.
  • Set the brake cord in such a way that the brake pad has not touched the rim when you pull the brake lever about half the size of the brake strain. Your grip to the handlebar is more powerful in this position than if you braked using outstretched fingers. Your fingers will also not get tired or cramp using quickly. In any case, do not set the brakes too slack so that the lever touches the handlebar because it will reduce the grip of the brakes.
  • The key to moving the gear smoothly, reliably, and without causing damage when you pedal as strongly as energy is to reduce the pressure to the pedal and immediately move the gear suit lever. You need to reduce the load on the chain for one round of wood as a result of which the chain does not jam, crack, or break.
  • Difficulty controlling your wheels in a narrow single track? relax, if your elbows and shoulders are calm, your ability to control the bike will flow using natural. You will not experience any out of control or wobble.
  • Mark a challenging training path. By driving on the same path over and over again, you can measure progress and remember the parts you need to improve.
  • Lower the saddle when practicing crossing sharp descents, drop offs, or other terrains that require poly body movement. With such a position, you will be easier to change positions quickly. If it has been proficient, return the saddle to its normal position.
  • Always check the condition of the brake pads, & change them regularly. Kampas quickly run out in muddy or sandy road conditions and when driving on long descents. Disc brakes are not susceptible to mud or sand, but permanently need to be replaced periodically.
  • Use spiritus to be a lubricant when installing a new grip handle bar when the inside of the grip is slippery and easily shifted. Alcohol is volatile and grip is not easy to shift.
  • Choose a smaller frame as long as you can reach the handlebar comfortably. The extra space between your groin and the top tube prevents injury if you suddenly have to get off the saddle.
  • Confused between flat bar and riser bar? Flat bars give you a more aerodynamic position when racing, the riser bar provides more calmness and position stability when descending steep slopes.
  • The brake lever should not exceed the end of the handlebar because it can be damaged if the bike falls
  • When braking, apply to 2 brakes, but focus on the front brake, especially on the descent. The front brake will be stronger as the weight of the body shifts forward.
  • Loosen the pressure in the rear brake when the rear wheel starts slipping. A spinning wheel puts in better control than a slippage wheel.
  • Use a thick chain lubricant when pedaling on wet conditions. Thin lubricants will quickly disappear swept away by water as a result of which the chain squeaks and quickly wears out.
  • Before paddling on the slope, spray all drive trains with gorent oil. There will be less garbage attached and easy to clean.
  • Feel the neck of the tire valve regularly to ensure permanent perpendicular using the rim, especially when pedaling with low tire pressure. When the pressure is less, the inner tire is able to twist and inhibit the valve. If the valve neck looks tilted, deflate the tire, then position it again correctly.

  • Although the rear wheel freehub requires minimal maintenance and does not have an oil valve or lubricated part, disassemble and clean the axle bearing once a year. Some lubricants can enter the freehub bearing.
  • Even though your bike uses a sealed hub, that doesn't mean water & dirt isn't able to get into the bearings. The procedure of cleaning & lubricating the hub varies according to its type. Some hubs have rubber seals that you can lift carefully using a knife until it explains the bearings. Others use bearings installed with cartridge systems as a result can be replaced when polluted or dry. There are also those who use lubricants that are inserted into the bearings to push dirt out.
  • Using a lightweight handlebar, such as light steel, aluminum, titanium, or carbon fiber is able to make your bike lighter and comfortable to ride. Just as a lightweight frame makes control smoother than a heavy frame, a lightweight handlebar also channels less shocks to your hands, arms, and shoulders. It's just that such a handle bar is less durable so it must be replaced every six months, or more often if you routinely participate in races or often fall.
  • The rougher the track surface the more crucial it is to relax your body and let the bike take part using itself. Think of your flexible arms and legs as an efficient and sophisticated suspension system. Slightly lift the panta from the saddle so that the body is slightly floating on the oncoming bike.
