How to use the shifting mountain bike correctly under different road conditions
When riding a mountain bike in different road conditions, it is also fun to adjust the mountain bike gear to meet the riding needs in a timely manner. But before newbies begin to ride mountain bikes, they should understand the concept of correct operation.
Do not adjust the mountain bike to a position that is too light or too heavy. The gear position is too light. The force of the mountain bike when pedaling is easy to be uneven. The force applied to the leg is too heavy, so that the rider’s buttocks cannot sit on the seat cushion stably. Causes a so-called hip jump. Moreover, the leg force is too large, and the posture of the pedaling is changed, which affects the smoothness of the pedaling action. There are also many mountain bike beginners who lack training at first, lack sufficient muscular endurance in their legs, and use excessive weights to gain greater momentum, but also because the muscles cannot withstand stress, causing knees or muscles. For sports injuries such as strains, mountain bike beginners should measure their physical fitness. They should not use the heavy gear to ride a long distance because of the pursuit of speed.
Mountain bikes experience different road conditions, so we have to learn to match the right gear ratios on different road conditions. Some beginners tend to adjust the teeth of the front and rear sprocket according to their riding habits and preferences when purchasing mountain bikes. However, we should choose the right ones and achieve the most efficient pedaling output.
When the mountain bike is on a flat road, the front sprocket is usually a small plate, with the rear 17 to 21 sprocket. If riding in the downwind, the rider can adjust the front to the front and the rear. The discs can be freely matched to achieve high-speed cruising.
When a mountain bike rides on a flat road, there are sharp short slopes in front, such as bridges and hilly terrain. The rider rushes up with the inertia of the riding plane, the front sprocket can be maintained in the position of the market, and the rear sprocket should be changed according to the road conditions.
When the mountain bike is on an uphill section, it will increase the burden on the leg when the rider steps on it, causing excessive resistance in the leg. At this time, the gear of the rear disc should be adjusted. At first, the adjustment method of one tooth and one tooth is used to gradually find the most suitable gear position. With the experience of riding, the gear position can be easily found. When riding a continuous uphill section, such as Taitung Shouka, such as long distance and steep terrain, the rider should change the gear according to the terrain, usually the front sprocket is adjusted to the small disc, while the rear sprocket is It is constantly changing gears to match the changing terrain conditions.
In fact, there is no such thing as a correct shifting opportunity during the mountain biking. After all, the conditions of each person are different. The rider should listen and feel the degree of mountain bikes to change gears. To put it simply, when you feel the resistance of a mountain bike when riding, you should shift gears. If you step too heavy, you should shift the gears, and vice versa.
