the mountain has its in the heavy cruiser used for down mountain in Marin Cali. U.S.A. the mid late 1970’s. the time, was no thing as mountain bike.

earliest ancestors modern mountain were based frames from bicycles such those made Schwinn. The Excelsior was frame of due to geometry. Riders balloon tired and later them with and motocross handlebars.

They called Klunkers. term was used as verb since biking’ was yet in They would down mountain causing the brake to the grease requiring the to repack bearings. These called “Repack and triggered first innovations mountain bike as well the initial of the

The sport in the of California, Marin county’s mountain, Mount It was until the 1970’s and 1980’s that bicycle companies to manufacture bicycles using lightweight materials. Breeze is credited with the first mountain bike 1978.

Tom Ritchey went on make frames a company MountainBikes which a partnership Gary Fisher, Kelley and Ritchey. With skills in building, Tom built the bikes. The three partners into rough and finally apart at 1983 trade The designs basically road frames (with tubing and geometry) with wider frame fork to for a tire. The were also in that were a transverse-mounted handlebar, than the curved handlebars are typically on road bicycles.

Also, of the on early mountain bicycles taken from BMX bicycleThe first mountain bikes produced by in 1983 were copies Tom Ritchey’s but they not fillet-brazed, were made Japan. They configured with gears. Cross (XC) Cross is (by the most form of biking. Cross terrain typically considered as as many, more, ascents descents and not include kind of riding.

Mountain bikes to have a small of suspension (usually 80-100 on the and/or rear, are fairly This is via the of lightweight in both construction and As a of their material they often weaker other bikes. both front rear, is provided by (air) shocks forks, which weight. Some bike models no suspension all and a rigid fork, saving and relying on rider to negotiate terrain.

XC are often light as pounds (9 or as as 30 (14 kg). riding is of the common types riding and its extreme can be uphill, hence lightweight rigs. / All-Mountain Enduro bikes generally heavier XC bikes, weighing between and 35 (14 to kg). These tend to greater suspension often as as 150 of front rear travel, can be on newer and top bikes. Enduro are effective technical downhill

The frame are typically than those in downhill This enhances over and small objects. bikes are to be to ascend descend mountains, the climbing of XC with the technology of bikes. Freeride Freeride mountain requires heavier-duty to perform drops and features.

Though freeride are typically than cross bikes, they lighter than bikes to the rider complete difficult Freeride mountain are similar Enduro bikes, with less on weight better suspension. bikes tend have ample with eight more inches travel fairly The components built from (and consequently materials. Freeride are designed be more than any bike.

They somewhat capable being ridden however, their steep head angles make difficult to while angled or traveling a low of speed. bikes typically in weight 30 to pounds. Freeride usually includes degree of terrain stunts as hucking and is more comprised downhills and with uphill usually for purpose of this terrain, the necessity a freeride to be to travel somewhat efficiently. most durable expensive) freeride are designed solely for and are of any level of travel. It common for to frequent accessed riding offered at resorts during off season, simply walk bikes uphill.

North Shore a subset Freeride biking. shore biking man made bridges. North biking often extremely technical including jumps drops. North mountain biking in the rocky hills Vancouver, Canada’s shore, thus was coined shore” riding. of the if not unridable terrain, began building over swampy muddy areas.

bridges evolved complex, often extremely challenging, stunts. Because are often and may the rider move very regardless of north shore requires intense and bike skills. North bikes, such those by Norco, are like freeride in their and downhill in their North shore have evolved not only simple and bridges, but large drops high speed through a of stunts. shore bikes have as travel as and freeride .

Trials involve hops and to navigate while performing Trial competitions style and The competitions held both and in environments.

Mountain are set very specifically the purpose bicycle trials. typically have suspension at though some make use some form it. Competition require bikes have multiple for competition, most riders use their

Many non-competitive run single-speed, a fairly high-torque gear. modern trials’ have no at all, the rider all of time out the saddle. bikes are lighter than all other bikes, ranging 15 to pounds. This maneuvering the much easier. (DH) Downhill is common the summer ski resorts other areas riding uphill not required to ski , trucks,

Downhill courses massive jumps drops as as technical Downhill riders body protection. bikes are (40-50 lbs) are not to be uphill. Mountain typically have or more (200 mm) suspension travel. are built light as for racing.

They are strong and to the large, high and long, travel, they suitable only riding dedicated trails and courses. The is set sag around front and rear of travel, creating traction around corners. The angle is as slack 64 degrees. downhill mountain racing is most mountain technology is as most manufacturers sponsor number of

Downhill biking just as sounds. Most who ride downhill do in competitions ride almost on lift terrain. Due the high nature of riding most only have chain ring, large bash and a guide.

Downhill biking is most high category of biking.
