Taking a bike out for a "test drive˝ will be useful, and when you find the model you like, you can have the bike shop make any adjustments to the bike to make it as comfortable as possible for you.
This is the most common type of mountain biking. It means riding on climbs across different types of terrain. There is also cross country (XC) racing which is more physically demanding.
If your height fits in between two sizes, for example small and medium, both are appropriate for you. If you ride fast and enjoy mostly cross-country style, take advantage of the larger frame (longer wheel base, which provides high-speed stability at the expense of maneuverability). If you ride technical, you should choose a smaller size to easily tackle jumps and bumps at low speeds.
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.
A good pair of sunglasses is also essential. Your glasses should protect your eyes from rocks, dirt, mud or other debris and also make it easier to see in different types of weather and at different times of day. Consider a set of sunglasses with interchangeable lenses so that you can change the lenses depending upon the weather or time of day for maximum contrast and protection from eye fatigue and strain.
