Using mountain bikes is not a simple thing that anyone can do. If you want to use it proficiently, it takes a long time to get used to the basic steps so you can ride in the safest way. To prepare yourself for the basic knowledge when using this vehicle on the hilly roads you do should remember some notes below.
Use the brakes
Using the brakes is not simply a matter of stopping but you need to be quick to handle reasonable situations. You should remember that when going down a slope the front wheel is more important than the rear wheel. Front brakes help you keep and control to avoid slipping. However, you should not abuse it, but you should pay attention to the rear brakes.
When you drop, the weight put on the rear wheel also changes, so you need to increase the braking force behind the bike. Balancing the power of the braking system gives you greater control over the ride of your sports bike.
In addition to using the brake system well, you need to pay attention to the movements, postures and even adjust the parts on the bike to match the terrain.
Convert to a low device
Before moving, to reduce the pressure on the chain you should lower the height of the vehicle, or find which vehicles are suitable for the terrain to use.
Sitting on the saddle
With a mountain bike, especially when climbing a hill in a mountainous terrain, you get up to pedal to change the impact on the rear wheel. Meanwhile, with this terrain that does not cling to the ground, it is difficult for you to move and climb the slope.
When you climb a slope, if you don’t lean forward, you will feel like your car is about to be lifted up, then you should be leaning forward forward to balance gravity.
Keep the pedal
If you are on a ramp, you need to keep and pedal evenly to avoid the gravity of the braking vehicle causing the bike to fall back. And don’t forget to keep your foot on the pedal to increase the weight of the car
The front pedals should be designed a little higher so that it doesn’t hit small rocks or other obstructions.
