There are five very general categories in mountain biking, downhill, dirt jump, cross country, trials/street riding and free ride. While each type has its own certain characteristics, the equipment is basically the same. The bikes are sturdy with large round tubing to make up the frame, knobby tires and shock absorbers or suspension.
The 1st mountain bikes were made of steel alloys. Carbon steel metal compounds are still utilized in making beginner-level mountain bikes, and some fans still prefer these kinds. The heaviness of these steel alloys is not always a drawback to the rider, as they provide natural shock assimilation ( thanks to the material itself ), and a superb proportion of strength vs weight, only overreached by expensive titanium metal. Also, bike frames made of steel alloy can be simply repaired, even by the rider himself.
For someone new to mountain biking, one of the first considerations is how to choose a mountain bike. As there are many manufacturers and models available in different price ranges, the beginning cyclist may not know where to begin.
