Mountain Bike Tip – Raise and Lower Your Saddle

Raise and Lower Your Saddle Just like your body, your saddle should not remain static throughout your ride. To get the most out of your bike you’ll want to lower your seat during your descents. This will allow for all of the bike movement to happen that we’ve been talking about throughout these posts. If

Mountain Bike Tip – Carry a Tool Kit

Carry a Tool Kit Whenever you’re out riding it’s important to carry at least a basic tool kit. Whether it’s in a saddle bag or in your backpack, having some basic tools can mean the difference between rolling/riding or walking home. At the very minimum consider carrying: • Multi-tool (with a chain breaker, Allen set,

Mountain Bike Tip – One Finger On The Brakes

One Finger On The Brakes Last week we talked about the merits of learning to use both your front and rear brake together. This week we’d like to remind you to use only one finger on the lever while braking. Just like you wouldn’t use two feet to brake in your car, you don’t need

Mountain Bike Tip – Low

You give yourself a more stable platform when riding with your ankles, knees and elbows bent as opposed to standing tall and rigid. Think about how high off of the ground your bike already is – adding height by standing too

Mountain Bike Tip – Level

Level The third of the “Four Ls,” “level,” refers to keeping your torso and shoulders relatively level to the ground and not letting them dip into the turn and/or inside the bike. You want to move your bike laterally under you, leaning your bike, not your body. Riders often get into trouble when they lean their

Mountain Bike Tip – Loose

Loose Our second “L,” “loose,” is all about letting the bike work under you. As in any athletic endeavor, it’s important to keep your body loose while biking. In allowing your arms and legs to move long and short you gain more suspension than just what’s on your bike. Having a death grip on your
