Interested in kickstarting your mountain bike adventure? First, you have to determine which style of MTB bike ride that you want to do; whether it’s cross country mountain cycling (XC), trail mountain cycling, enduro mountain cycling or downhill mountain bike. XC mountain bikes are bikes that are designed to cover off-road terrain in a faster manner. They are mainly designed for cross country races, usually lightweight and versatile. The cross country mountain bikes are usually much steeper than the other bikes.
Meanwhile, trail mountain bikes are well-known to be basikal mtb that are fun to ride on a wide range of terrain, and provide stability for climbs and downhill terrains. This MTB bike usually has up to 140mm bike suspension and slacker headtube than XC mountain bicycles.
Lastly, the enduro basikal mountain bikes. Enduro mountain bikes are equipped with longer suspension travel ranging from 150-180mm. The geometry of this basikal MTB is designed to be more gravity-friendly than the other two, with longer wheelbase, reach and relaxed headtube angle.
Then, this choice will help you to set up your preferences for the suspension of your mountain bicycle---is it full suspension mountain bike that you need, or will be enough with just having a rigid or hardtail (mtb) mountain bike. For beginners, you can start with a single suspension or hardtail mtb bike, and if you want to be more adventurous, you can go with a dual suspension or full suspension mtb one, so it can dampen the road more.
How about the mtb frame and wheel size? Usually there will be some options for each series of mountain bikes. For the sizing, you sure have to determine your height and the geometry of your desired mountain bike. To help you choose best mountain bike in Malaysia, you can also ask for advice in the Rodalink bike shop or find the sizing guide on the product page and this bike sizing chart.
