A lot of people will try to claim football is superior to many sports because you don’t need loads of kit to play it. A ball, plus maybe a pair of boots (if you’re playing in the UK) and you’re away.
But you what, we like the fact that there’s loads of gear in mountain biking and we like getting geeky about it. If you’re into mountain biking (and you’re completely honest with yourself) you probably do too.
“We like the fact that there’s loads of gear in mountain biking and we like getting geeky about it.”
If nothing else it gives you something to talk about with strangers you meet on the trails.
And contrary to popular belief, you don’t actually need to be a millionaire to get started in mountain biking either as most trail centres will rent gear to beginners.
