Listen: Common Mountain Bike Mistakes, And How to Fix Them

In this episode of the Singletracks podcast, Aaron, Greg, and I discuss some common mountain bike mistakes we’ve made or seen others make, and how to avoid those mistakes.

  • Buying the absolute cheapest bike or components
  • Spending too much on a bike
  • Spending money in the wrong places
  • Improper bike setup
  • Ignoring maintenance intervals
  • Washing bikes with high-pressure hoses
  • Using the wrong tool for the job
  • Being unprepared
  • Treating every ride like a race
  • Overestimating skills or fitness
  • Riding wet trails
  • Not getting involved in local trail work

If you’ve learned from a mountain bike mistake we didn’t cover, we’d love to hear about it here.
