The different MTB disciplines are gaining more and more popularity and followers. There are many today who take up cycling and ride a bike for the first time, while others upgrade different parts of their bikes to enhance and optimize their effort on each ride.

  2. Wheels and fenders.

  3. Fork.

  4. Type of brakes.

  5. Saddle and pedals.

  6. Chain.
