  1. 1. Mountain bicycles or mountain bikes, alsoknown as all-terrain bikes are bicycles that are created for off the road cycling and terrain biking. Mountain biking includes various activities such as traversing of rocks and washouts and steep declines on dirt trails and other unpaved grounds. To keep up with the rough terrain, mountain bikes need to be designed to withstand the stresses of off road use with obstacles. Over the years, manydifferent subtypes of mountain bikes have been developed such as cross country, freeride, downhill and a variety of other bikes.fixed gear bicycle
  2. 2. Cross country (XC) mountain bikes: These are the most conventional andpopular of all the mountain bikes They are designed primarily for crosscountry racing with an emphasis on climbing, speed and endurance
  3. 3. These bikes need to be both lightweight and efficient and can be rigid with nosuspension, hard tail with only front suspension or full suspension Crosscountry bikes favour fast responses and stability
  4. 4. Those that are lightweight are not suitable for steep or severe terrainDownhill (DH) bikes: These bikes are built to be more durable and canwithstand hard hits and big drops while racing downhill mountains
  5. 5. They have more inches of suspension and are built with strong frames andhave large and high gears Most downhill bikes only have one chain ring in thefront
  6. 6. Trail bikes: These are fixed gear bicycle a development from cross countrymountain bikes and are specially designed for jumping over obstacles Theyare used by recreational mountain bikers at purpose built centres or on naturaloff road trails
  7. 7. They are typically built to handle rougher terrain than cross country bikes withgreater stability while descending Freeride (FR) mountain bikes: These aresimilar to downhill bikes, but are built with less emphasis on weight and morefocus on strength
  8. 8. These bikes have a lot of suspension and are built from strong componentsThey can be used to ride uphill, although it is quite difficult to manoeuvre ifangling up a hill or travelling at a low speed
  9. 9. Single speed (SS) mountain bikes: These have one set gear ratio, whichcan be altered depending on the terrain being ridden on and the strength of therider In addition, the size of the bike affects which gear ratio can be chosen
  10. 10. These bikes are often ridden by fit individuals on mild to moderate crosscountry terrain
  11. 11. fixed gear bicycle
