Mountain bikes were first introduced from the United States. Of course, they were also invented by the Americans as a bicycle specifically designed for mountain and cross-country. I think, perhaps only Americans can design such a wild and passionate bicycle. Well, it is undeniable that mountain bikes are rapidly becoming popular around the world, and now everyone can see it in daily life all the time.
According to the specific use and intensity, mountain bikes are further divided into: general off-road XC, forest road TR, all-mountain AM, downhill DH and so on. In addition to ordinary off-road XC bicycles, other AM, DH, etc. all have front and rear shock absorbers, that is to say, soft tail, and the fork stroke of downhill DH is more than 200M. Of course, because bicycles like AM and DH are expensive, strong, and dangerous, not everyone can play them, so they are relatively small, and the price of XC bicycles is relatively normal. Therefore, the most in our daily life It’s only XC off-road bikes that are common, so that when people talk about mountain bikes, the first thing they think of is XC off-road bikes. In fact, mountain bikes are just a general term for so many vehicles.
Of course, using bicycles in daily life does not require the use of AM and DH bicycles. Although they are sharp tools for scouring mountains, when it comes to paving roads, professional equipment becomes a burden. Therefore, if we usually need to do light off-road occasionally, we can walk on bad roads, and can easily run on cement asphalt roads. XC mountain bikes are a good choice.
Of course, bicycle manufacturers are not saying that they have to choose XC mountain bikes. People with different personalities do not have the same choice. If you are only riding in the city, road bikes are also a good choice, but the sitting position is not comparable to mountain bikes. So comfortable, although it looks beautiful.
