Common mistakes in mountain biking

1.Sitting in technicals sections and descents:

Once you sit on the chair,you lose all your dynamic ability to move over the bike,and your main "sling"-the hand and feet.Sitting suitable for simple and flat riding,or for long climbing.Rule of thumb: If you do not need to pedal in order to move forward,you probably need to get into a stanstill! Use the bike and whisk the elements on the path to gain more speed.

2. Too much "under backwards" in declines:

Too many riders are sure that each drop means "under backwards" as far as possible.The truth is that when your weight is back, there is not enough weight on the front wheel. The front is responsible for most breaking,grip and of course steering. Always stay above the center of the bike,and let the bike descend or rise under the body according to the incline,do not automatically enter the body position may not fit the area.

3. Fear of using the front braek:

One of the most common myths is to avoid using the front break,so as not to roll over the handlebars. So,all the parts you have on the bike-you should use them. precisely the front breakis the one that does most of the work. Yes, you have to know how to stop right,and to maintain a proper exit-and then there is no reason to turn over-even the steepest decline.

 4. Braking within the rotation:

Get in a spin at a speed you feel comfortable with, and never stop in a turn. A breaking in the middle of a rotation will cause either a slide or a fall, or a strightening of the bike and an exit from the line. Here's something easy to implement for self-improvment: You felt you had to break in a round, you can fix it in one of the following two ways: either step more slowly for a ride, or replace the brake with a stronger tilt of the bike.

5. Bouncing / Pulling the Bicycle in the Flayers:

When you get to Droop, all you have to is move the weight back to our speed, let the bike out in a balanced way, and get back to the starting position. Excessive pull of the handlebars up or bouncing the bike will cause two things that you do not want: landing too hard, and getting out of balance in the air. In any case the correct technique for the levers should be studied properly. After learning, it is quite easy to implement.
