Mountain biking is a great hobby for men because they can cycle nearly anywhere even if the trail is rough or there is no trail at all. Mountain bikes have a frame that can handle bumps and absorb impacts so the rider is not uncomfortable. In addition, their tyres are thick with a knobby tread for traction and protection against rocks and other sharp objects on the trail. Because a mountain bike must endure so much, it is a good idea to look for a quality one with features that make the ride easier and more comfortable.

Not all men are the same height so being able to select a mountain bike that is more suited to their height is ideal. It has a Maestro suspension and Fox shocks that make riding on a trail comfortable even over the big bumps. In addition, the frame only weighs 5.9 pounds which is convenient when trying to ride uphill.

Giant Trance XThe Trek Remedy is a 29-inch bicycle with a head angle of 67 degrees, which takes a little weight off the frame. However the narrow fork also makes the bike a little squirly on downhill slopes. The entire bike weighs only 30.7 lbs and it features a ABP and Full Floater suspension.
