Building A Mountain Bike

bicycle_parts_labeledMy passion is building bikes. I like to do it, because I accomplish something and have something to show for it. like you can say,” I just ate 5 tacos!” but you wouldn’t have anything to show for it, but if you say,” I just finished building my bike!” you have a bike to show for it. Also it uses p my spare time so I’m not on Facebook 24/7. I’ve never built a car, nd I would like to try that , because it’s much more challenging then building a bike, and it’s a much bigger accomplishment,then building a bike. Nothing gets me more excited then a BMX race, because there are hills, turns, jumps, and crashes. Also if my passion or hobby of building bikes takes off, I can sell bikes for a pretty big profit, and the more bikes I make, the more I can sell. The more I sell the more tools and friends I can hire. Then eventually get our own logo, or brand of bikes, which will make a great profit in the future.

Mountain biking is the sport of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, using specially designed mountain bikes. Mountain bikes share similarities with other bikes, but incorporate features designed to enhance durability and performance in rough terrain.

Mountain biking can generally be broken down into multiple categories: cross country (XC), trail riding, all mountain, downhill, freeride, slopestyle, dirt jumping and trials. The vast majority of mountain biking falls into the recreational XC, and Trail Riding categories.

This individual sport requires endurance, core strength and balance, bike handling skills, and self-reliance. Advanced riders pursue steep technical descents and, in the case of freeriding, downhilling, and dirt jumping, aerial maneuvers off both natural features and specially constructed jumps and ramps.

Mountain biking can be performed almost anywhere from a back yard to a gravel road, but the majority of mountain bikers ride off-road trails, whether country back roads, fire roads, or singletrack (narrow trails that wind through forests, mountains, deserts, or fields). There are aspects of mountain biking that are more similar to trail running than regular bicycling. Because riders are often far from civilization, there is a strong ethic of self-reliance in the sport. Riders learn to repair their broken bikes or flat tires to avoid being stranded miles from help. Many riders will carry a backpack, including a water bladder, containing all the essential tools and equipment for trailside repairs, and many riders also carry emergency supplies in the case of injury miles from outside help. Club rides and other forms of group rides are common, especially on longer treks. A combination sport named mountain bike orienteering adds the skill of map navigation to mountain biking.
