Mountain bike riders need to learn a variety of skills. Aside from having to learn how to handle a bike while riding over sometimes difficult topography, riders must also learn how to repair broken bikes and flat tires while on the trail so that they do not find themselves stranded out in the middle of nowhere. Survival skills do come into play as well as many riders go on trails and on group rides, sometimes for rather lengthy treks.
All of the major athletes of the sport will tell you that mountain bike training is vastly important and you should take part in mountain bike fitness training when ever the opportunity arises. Going on those short rides will benefit you hugely and will stop you from injuring yourself.
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.
