Mountain bikes are inarguably the most famous bicycle form today. Enjoyed by hobbyists and professionals alike, these are certainly the most common bicycles we see around today.
Did you know – Mountain bikes are not meant for mountains only?
What is an MTB cycle?
MTB is abbreviated for Mountain Bike.
Unlike regular cycles, MTBs have large knobby tires, lighter frames, and sometimes, lower stance.
Some MTB cycles also come with gears for treading steep grades up or downhill. There are also mechanical upgrade options available such as mechanical disc brakes and front/full suspension.
Over the years, mountain bikes have evolved into various forms. For instance, there are hybrids for the city as well as trail rides. Then, there are fat bikes and cross country bikes for soft terrains and speed, respectively.
And then there are the most popular ones, all-around MTBs. These are built for endurance, speed, and extended riding.
