ANATOMY OF A MOUNTAIN BIKE
How to choose a mountain bike
Cut through the jargon and understand the mechanical basics of bicycling
STANCHION
Mountain bikes have increased
vastly in popularity and are used
both for the actual sport and
for general recreation and even
commuting. Although there are
several categories of mountain
bikes, most people will choose
from the �cross-country’ category
or the �trail bike’ category.
The latter is the biggest seller.

WHERE? Very many models are
full-suspension, i.e. the front
and rear wheels have some
amount of suspension travel.
However many riders prefer
front-only suspension, with the
non-suspension rear known as
�hardtail’.
Bike derailleur gears are a
variable-ratio transmission
system involving a chain,
multiple sprockets of various
sizes, plus a mechanism to move
the chain from one sprocket
to another. Front and rear
derailleurs consist of a movable
chain-guide, operated remotely
by a cable attached to a shifter
mounted on down tube, stem or
handle-bar. While pedalling, the
rider operates the lever and the
change in cable tension moves
the chain-guide from side to
side, i.e. �derailing’ the chain
on to different sprockets. The
front derailleur moves the chain
side to side between the front
chainrings. The rear derailleur
has two jobs, i.e. moving the
chain between rear sprockets,
plus taking up any slack in the
chain.
Until recently most standard
bikes had a triple ring crankset
and a 7-, 8- or 9-speed cassette
in the rear and this set-up
provided a huge range of gears.
As bike weight is always a
consideration, lately a doublechainring, with 10-speed rear
cassettes has been added to the
selection available.
Shifters (also known as gear
control or gear levers) select
the desired gear ratio. They
operate the cable that leads to
the gear mechanism, which can
be a derailleur or an internal
hub mechanism. Shifter controls
are mounted on the handle-bars
or down tube or stem, with the
right shifter controlling the rear
derailleur and the left shifter
controlling the front derailleur.
Friction shifters shift from the
lowest to highest gear in one
motion, but with some fine-tuning.
Index shifters click to various
fixed stops, with no adjustment
required from the rider. Some
shifters are operated by twisting a
ring, and some are integrated with
the brake controls.

PIVOTS
FRONT DERAILLEUR
Apart from a mountain bike’s
obviously fatter tyres and flat
handle-bars, the main elements to
consider are: suspension, gearing,
wheel size, kind of tyres and,
importantly, weight.
HOW MUCH? Cross-country bikes
usually have less than 4,5 inches
(114 mm) of travel. They are
efficient, lightweight, but not as
rugged as trail bikes. They might
be faster in races and fine for
smooth trails, but are probably
not up to the really rough stuff.
Trail bikes have between
100 mm and 152 mm of travel
and are heavier and more
suitable for more aggressive
trails as well as long rides like
epics. In fact, a trail bike is the
ideal all-round mountain bike.

Tyres must be at the correct pressure; wheels must be secure
Get off the road when you are not moving
Brakes and gears must be in proper working order
Don’t pass on the left
There must not be any play in the various assembled parts
Watch what is happening behind you (consider a mirror)
Don’t swerve in and out of traffic
Use hand signals when necessary
Check yourself before every ride
Wear bright/reflective clothing
Use bike lights and reflective extras
Make a noise if a warning is needed (e.g. a horn)
Wear a helmet, as required by the National Road Traffic Act,
1996 (Act No. 93 of 1996)
Do not cut off traffic sounds with headphones
Obey traffic rules
Watch out for car doors opening or hazards on the ground
Stay alert and ride with care
and consideration
Be alert, be predictable, be sensible

almost completely straight, when you
are on the seat, with just a slight bend
to the knee when the pedal is at its
lowest position
• Some women’s bikes don’t have a high
top-tube, so this step can be skipped
• If you can put your feet firmly on the ground, your seat is too low. You should,
at most, be able to stand on tip-toe.
• Keep your seat fairly level, not tilting
downward or upward
BIKE WHEEL SIZE
• Adjust the seat forward or backward on
the seat-post until you feel your weight
is comfortably centred
STANDARD 26” vs NEWER 29”
29ers
PROS: Their greater ground-contact area provides better
traction; they can roll over obstacles more easily without
slowing down; their larger size gives the feeling of an
extra 25 – 50 mm of suspension; their better handling
and speed on curving turns; front wheel is less likely to lift
on steep climbs; they’re a better fit for taller riders; they
are faster on flat ground.
Handlebar height
• Experiment until you are comfortable
• Road bike: top of handlebars should be
slightly lower than the top of the seat
• Mountain bike: set handlebars even
lower, ± 7 – 10 cm below the seat
Which measurement
determines a frame size?
• Hybrids and cruisers: handlebars
2,5 – 5 cm (or more) higher than
the seat
Normally it’s the length of the seat-tube,
measured from the mid-point of the bottom
bracket to the top of the seat-tube, where
the seat-post enters the frame.
Occasionally it’s from the middle of the
bottom bracket to the point where the top
tube and the seat-post meet. Some road
bikes are measured horizontally from the
centre of the head-tube and the centre of
the seat-tube.
TT
HT
Ask a trained sales consultant which
measurement type has been used for each
particular bike.
Key to frame diagram
TT = top tube
ST
CONS: They are slower to accelerate; and their larger
size of wheel and tyre adds to the bike’s overall weight
(therefore riders of 29ers often choose a hardtail option);
they are harder to handle on tight switchbacks and
wherever flick ability is needed; they need more braking
power to slow down; hill-climbing is more difficult;
smaller riders will have to find a smaller frame (or a
woman-specific frame) to overcome problems with fit.
Kind of tyres
Most off-the-floor mountain bikes will have tyres with
tubes and with a standard, mid-depth tread pattern.
However there is an argument for tubeless tyres as these
can be run at lower pressure to improve ride comfort and
traction, and there is no chance of pinch-flatting a tube.
However tubes can be removed and replaced with about
55 g of sealant.*
for terrain with loose stones and rocks; more tightly spaced, lower knobs for
smoother terrain; or widely spaced, high knobs to use in the mud or wet.
Weight
Lighter bikes make it easier to ride up and down hills, over bumps and around
tight corners. But don’t sacrifice strength and durability just to save weight.
Effective areas to save weight are: lighter wheels and tyres, saddle, handlebars and stem, seatpost and pedals. Guideline: for the average rider, 9 to 11 kg
is an acceptable weight for a bike ridden on flatter terrain.

1. Wash smart
2. Lube right
Regular cleaning prevents trapped dirt from
damaging rims or brake pads. Spray with
a hose from above the bike, so you don’t
force water into pedals, hubs and bottom
bracket. Then ideally use a spray-on bike
wash with special surfactants and cleaning
agents. Special brushes make washing
easier and safer for bike surfaces.
A dirty or dry chain makes it harder to
pedal, causes squeaking and can hamper
shifting gear. So remember to lubricate the
chain and the pivot points on your brakes
and derailleurs. Don’t use too heavy a
lubricant and don’t apply too much. When
lubricating pivot points on brakes, don’t
get any on the brake pads. (A dry-style
lube is best for brakes and levers.) With
derailleurs, lubricate where the body of the
derailleur moves, wiping off any excess.
Clean your chain with a citrus degreaser
and a specialist chain cleaning tool.
Occasionally clean chain and gears with a
thin, dry, stiff-bristle brush to prevent gunk
from building up.
Polish the frame and other relevant parts,
as this helps them resist dirt and moisture.
3. Pump those tyres
Soft tyres wear out much faster and can
be dangerous to ride on. If your tyres look
soft, you don’t necessarily have a puncture.
Bike tyres contain very little air, plus they
are made from porous butyl rubber which
allows air to seep through slowly.
So road bike tyres will soften in a week and
mountain bike tyres over about a month.
Riding on soft tyres makes it harder to
pedal and can also cause damage to rims
and tubes. So check your road bike tyres
before every ride and mountain bike tyres
at least once a week, plus always carry a
tyre repair kit, a pump and a spare tube.
The recommended pressure is usually
printed on the sidewall of the tyre.

BIKE TUBES
Remember to grease your seat-post every
few months and remember to keep an
oil-damped suspension system lubricated.
About once a year spinning parts with
bearings (wheels, pedals, bottom bracket)
and the headset should be dismantled,
checked and greased again. This is best
done by a bike mechanic. Shock oil should
also be replaced once a year.

4. Pamper your ride
Store your bike indoors, not just under a
patio roof where moisture in the air will still
reach its metal parts. (The salt air near the
sea is especially corrosive.) Ride with care,
avoiding obstacles where you can. When
riding off-road where rough surfaces are
the norm, protect your frame, fork, wheels
and components by raising yourself off the
seat and bending your arms and legs like
a jockey does. Also learn to jump your bike
professionally, landing softly.

BMX
The heritage of bicycle motocross
hails from California. For dirt, vert,
park, street, flat land and freestyle,
BMX is the essence of action sport.
Frame material ranges from regular
steel to chromoly (high-tensile steel)
and lightweight aluminium (mainly
for racing). BMX racing wheels
vary from 16” to 26”, with the most
popular being the 20”. Dirt jumping
and freestyle wheel sizes include
16” and 18” for younger riders and
20” for most others.

HYDRATION
Benefits of good hydration
Hydration tips
More energy, power, endurance and
calorie-burning
Drink before:
Drink often:
Add: Drink after:
Watch urine:
You’ll go further, faster
It will shorten your recovery time
Signs of dehydration
To avoid over-hydration
Early: Dry mouth, drop in energy level
This is a rare condition, affecting chiefly triathletes and marathon runners. Sodium levels in the
blood become so diluted that cell function is impaired.
• Don’t drink more than you sweat
• Drink a sports drink with electrolytes rather than just plain water
• Drink while you are exercising
Mid: Thirst
Later: Cramps, headaches, nausea,
dark and scanty urine
