Air springs absorbers, front or rear, usually not designed to support riders weighing over a hundred kilograms. Bike specification should specify the dampers maximum air pressure and what weight they can support.
Appropriate clothing is also essential for mountain biking. Your clothes should be lightweight and comfortable for the weather, but also strong and durable. Don’t forget the shoes, your shoes need to be comfortable but also practical for the terrain.
Taller riders usually ride more "elegantly˝ than the low ones. Mountain bike riders with short legs and a solid upper body seem often clumsy. If you’re tall, I encourage you to choose the lightest frame as possible with a short suspension travel. As long as you are not overweight, let your hands and feet do most of the work, and enjoy a light and agile bike.
This type of biking involves hopping and jumping bikes over various obstacles. It has the versatility to be done either off road or in urban areas. The rider must have a very good sense of balance and skill. This is very similar to skateboarding where style, originality and techniques count.
Downhill bikes often weigh over 21 kilograms. Sometimes it is half of the rider's weight. There is no reason to drag a bike that is almost 40 percent of your weight. Light weight short rider can use a bike with medium travel suspension that equipped with lighter parts.
