Bikes, Mountain biking

Stuff you will need before you go mountain biking

I wish I could have had this list and information when I first started mountain biking.

Bike basics suggestions from Dan Foster: 1) “A first-timer should get a full suspension (shock absorbers on front and back).” 2) “Mountain bike (helmets) come down lower in the back…and gives a little more protection.” 3) A padded liner protects against chafing. 4) A hydration pack is “great for holding water. But it also holds a rescue kit: tire irons, a tube patch kit, a multitool and a pump. You must carry all this all the time, because you will get a flat. If you don’t know how to fix a flat, learn.”
