MTB 29er or 26er – What to Buy? So you have just started mountain biking or are about to and would like some helpful tips to get you going? In this case, 26er or a 29er? If you haven’t already seen my first two videos on the subject, I suggest you check them out: The 26er and 29er refer to 26 or 29 inch wheels. Now, this is the easiest decision for a beginner to Mountain biking… Go with the 29er. The 29er will better assist you with rough terrain and uphill climbing over a 26er any day. The only real reasons you would want a 26er are for a little less weight and better technical control. However, let’s be honest, if you are just starting out, an extra ½ pound won’t significantly affect you… and it will be lots, likely years, of practice before you get into the crazy west coast technical skinny stuff. That’s it… Unless you are a pro, just stick with the 29er. Once you put 1000 kilometers under the tires, you will know if you are ready to go for the serious tech stuff that 26ers are good at. Thanks and have fun out there.

If you are downhill biking, then a lower seat is preferable. However, since you are a beginner, high seat is not the best position to start off with. Set the height at the highest you can still keep the bike upright without being in motion. This will help you when you have those sudden stops and you need to keep yourself from falling off the bike. However, there is a downside, with the seat lower, your legs will work much harder for the peddle motion. Essentially, when the seat is high, the peddle motion is close to walking. When the seat is low, the peddle motion it closer to squats. Saddle position is next. Using the adjustment bracket, start with the saddle level with the horizon. Make sure your butt bones are centered on the two cushioned area. You may need to adjust this 3 or 4 times before you get it right. Now, make sure that when riding in the standing position, you can drop behind the seat. When going downhill or on a drop, the most common mistake is leaning forward. This is a guarantee you …
