Why Did We Start Mountain Biking For Beginners?

We started the Mountain Biking for Beginners section of because everyone has to start at square one. Even Sam Hill and Steve Pete were white knuckling it at some point in time, so by creating this section, we are able to shorten your MTB learning curve and feed off the knowledge of 40+ years of riding experience from our team. We are also able to draw off our initial MTB experiences to bring an ultimate guide together for you guys.

The ultimate goal of Bike198 is to help as many mountain bikers as possible get better on the trail by choosing the right parts for their riding style and provide valuable tips that make you a better rider on the trail. What better way to do it than to start at square one with a section just for beginners?

While this is a very comprehensive section broken into multiple categories, there will be questions along the way. All we ask…hit up the contact form on this site with your question so we can formulate an article or sub-section in to expand the section and help other mountain bikers. We are going to constantly update and add to the section as time moves forward, so be on the lookout for new content and reviews.
