A question we frequently get asked at TBS is "...but can I ride Bike Park on it?' Our answer is always yes! Definitely in fact! Typical mountain bikes are super capable and are right at home on anything from alpine singletrack to a full blown downhill bike park! However, there are always changes that you can make to your set up to optimise your bike for the rough and unforgiving nature of a bike park! Without realising it, you'll ride more distance and rough terrain on your bike in a day than you would on a good 3 or 4 trail rides! So make sure your bike is ready to deal with that!
Depending on what type of biking you engage in the need for crisp clean shifting is necessary. However, shifting is often over looked by most people until it is to late. By that time cables and housing are full of dust, grit, rust and sand causing severe friction in the lines making shifting quality poor and excess wear on shifters and derailleurs.
Having a good set of hydraulic disc brakes on your mountain bike is one of the key components that allows you to go as fast as you can on the trail. Without a strong set of brakes to slow you own, dropping in to steep and fast terrain is much more dangerous. The brake pads specifically are another wear item on your bike and should be changed when worn down. Understanding the different kinds of brake pads available will help you make the right decision when getting yourself some new pads. W are going to break down the differences between organic and metal Shimano mountain bike brake pads.

With so many different component options on the market in today's mountain biking world, it can be very difficult to decide which brand, and more specifically, which product line to ride. SRAM and Shimano have long dominated the biking industry with top-of-the-line components, ranging in price and specs. Each company produces multiple lines of groupsets that are geared towards different types of riding disciplines as well as price range. Let's take a look at what each of these companies has to offer.
Are you looking to upgrade your drivetrain but unsure of what specs you need to suit your style of riding? Mountain bike specs are often only millimeters different in size, yet those tiny differences in specs can make a huge impact on your riding. Cranksets are a perfect example of this. The standard size of cranksets usually ranges between 165mm, 170mm and 175mm. Minimal difference, right?
