This post is exclusively written for Mountain Bikes Lovers.
A Mountain Bike is the abbreviated form of MTB. The Mountain Bikes are exclusively designed for traveling on uneven surfaces like footpaths of hilly regions and for stunt performers.
There are more differences between the ordinary bicycle and a Mountain Bike.
The Ordinary Bicycle is designed exclusively for on-road riding while the Mountain Bike is exactly opposite to that.
For riding on even surfaces like roads, there won’t be many hurdles like stones and small Pits. But in the case of Uneven roads, a rider has to face many stones and pits.
For this purpose, there should be a thing called suspension to prevent the bike from Mechanical Damage.
In Ordinary Bicycles, suspensions and brakes are designed based on even roads. If you use ordinary bicycles for Uneven roads, you may have to face damages and even accidents.
But in case of the MTB’s, the suspensions and brakes are designed considering the uneven roads. Perfect engineering is followed in Mountain Bikes.
Of course, the cost also varies between ordinary Bicycles and Mountain Bikes.
The Mountain Bikes usually comes with straight handlebars and a triangle shaped Body to provide high comfort to the riders and also for engineering practice.
I hope, now you have got some basic idea about Mountain Bikes.
Let us see the list of best Mountain Bikes which are available in the marketplace.

MTB Buying Guide
Here are a few things that one should keep in mind before buying an MTB.
1. Size and Weight:
The Size and Weight Plays a major role in MTB. The age factor of the rider cannot be considered here as the individuals vary in size and length.
An Individual with 20 years of age may have a height even 6 feet
Another individual of the same age may only have 5.2 feet.
So I am considering the feet and Inches for Sizing and not the age.
Here is the Sizing chart for MTB.
Mountain Frame Size Height
Feet & Inches
Frame Size (inches)
Frame Size (cm)
4’10” – 5’2″
148cm – 158cm
13″ – 14″
33 – 37
5’2″ – 5’6″
158cm – 168cm
15″ – 16″
38 – 42
5’6″ – 5′ 10″
168cm – 178cm
17″ – 18″
43 – 47
5’10” – 6’1″
178cm – 185cm
19″ – 20″
48 – 52
6’1″ – 6’4″
185cm – 193cm
21″ – 22″
53 – 57
6’4″ – 6’6″
193cm – 198cm
23″ – 24″
58 – 61
2. Tires Design:
For effective braking tires play a major role in addition with Braking Mechanism.
It is good to choose tires with more curves and designs in the outer layer which in turn provides good friction with the surface while applying a brake.
3. Disc Brakes:
As said previously Disc Brake provides better control over the speed in addition with tires.
The disc in the disc brakes is usually made of cast iron and other materials like aluminum. The disc brakes are also available separately in the market.
If you are going to buy an ordinary bicycle then I won’t recommend disc brakes.
4. Speed and Gears:
Speeds don’t play a major part in trekking but it plays a major role in racing.
The Gears may vary from brand to brand and even model to model. The wheel also is taken into consideration while designing Mountain Bikes.
For climbing hills, low gears are preferred.
For racing, you can choose an MTB with more number of Gears.
Advantages of Gears:
- Reduces human effort while driving.
- The rider can attain the maximum speed with gears.
Drawbacks of Geared MTB:
- Frequently Chain Dislocation problem will come if not handled properly.
5. Adjustable Seat:
If a rider is comfortable with seating then only a rider can ride comfortable.
On selecting your dream Mountain Bike, one should always choose an MTB with adjustable seating.
Nowadays, most of the bikes which are available in the market have adjustable seating. If not in the rare case you can approach a technician for adjustment.
Note: If you are buying it for your child, always go with adjustable Seating. So that your child grows you don’t need to go for another MTB.
6. Suspension Unit:
A Suspension Unit is mandatory for an MTB since it has to deal with pits, stones, and even rocks.
A dual suspension (front and rear) helps the rider to ride comfortably.
Suspension Units are also available separately so prefer to buy an MTB in which the suspension unit can be easily replaced.
