Mountain bikes are designed to handle a lot of weight and rugged terrain. They’re the best choice when you plan on doing a lot of off-road riding and need something that can keep up with your demanding lifestyle.

Factors that’ll Affect Your Decision

Stepping into the world of mountain bikes is no easy task, so before making your purchase, make sure you do your research.

There are some factors that should be taken into account before investing in a mountain bike like: frame size, wheel size, weight capacity, type of components (tires, brakes), frame material, etc.

Before committing to buying such an expensive item as a bike frame, make sure you have all the information necessary to make the best decision for yourself.


The first thing that you should consider is what size bike frame you need. If you are tall or have long legs, then it’s time for you to upgrade to a larger bike frame. Mountain bikes come in many different sizes like small, medium and large; so take measurements from where your knee will rest on the frame down to where your toe sits on the ground while standing over it to decide which size fits best for your body type.
