Extreme Sports : Mountain Biking Mountain biking is not only a great way to get in shape, but also is a way to see beautiful places and get in touch with nature. There are thousands of great trails across the US and world that are challenging and fun to ride. Today's mountain bikes have become powerful yet light and give way to amazing riding experiences. Below are great online resources that teach the basics of mountain biking and how and where to get started.
Mountain bikes have wide, knobby tires for extra traction and shock absorption. In recent years, front wheel suspension has become the norm and full front and rear suspension is becoming increasingly common. Some mountain bikes are also fitted with bar ends on the handlebars, but with the increase in popularity of riser handlebars (as opposed to a flat straight handlebar) fewer riders use bar end extensions.suspensionbar endshandlebars Mountain bikes
