Mountain biking, as a sport, has increased in appreciation over the past few years, particularly with the upsurge of action sports or 'extreme sports‘. It in addition has enjoyed the sponsorship of environmentally-concerned people, who use such bikes not only for the sport, but also as a method to travel in the outdoors and in the town.
Alpha, Columbus, Easton Aluminum, and Reynolds are just some of the bike firms that manufacture aluminum alloy frames. These reasonably-priced frames are designed for light weight and corrosion resistance, making these convenient to maintain. Aluminum is also used as it is highly malleable, and can be turned into frames of different shapes. These are also sturdy, and their raised levels of rigidity highly impact the success of integrated full suspension systems. Aluminum alloy frames are available at low cost since the material is naturally abundant.
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.
The majority of the mountain bikes are designed for riders of 1.75 meters, weighing around 75 kilograms and with above average form. If those are your values, you‘re lucky, because the amount of bikes that can fit you is practically endless.
It comes as no surprise that Marin County, California is the place where mountain biking originated where even used Mountain bikes are on great demand. This county houses the imposing Mount Tamalpais, where there is a trail for everyone, be it a beginner or an experienced dare devil. The Marin bikes have tires with extra traction and state of the art disc braking, located at the center of the wheel, which provides maximum user control and comfort. Not only do they rate high in performance, they also catch your eye with their stunning design and aesthetics.
