Mountain Bike Reviews: Finding a Reliable Source...

Posted by ei2Aevai on January 2nd, 2021

When you're ready to buy a mountain bike, if you're like most mountain bikers, start reading mountain bike reviews. However, you may have discovered that not all mountain bike reviews are accurate - not even honest! The fact is, some dealers and even manufacturers pay people to write good reviews - of bikes the reviewer has never had a chance to use!

There are countless sites that post reviews of various mountain bikes. Some of the sites are very trustworthy and others just can't be counted on. It's hard for the average mountain biker to know who to believe - beginner riders who haven't made their first mountain bike purchase yet don't stand a chance. รีวิวจักรยาน

If you're looking for reviews, stick to sites and posts that can be counted on for accurate and valuable information. Most print publications have accurate reviews. When reading one of these reviews, it is important to look at the edges of the page for very small print that says "advertising." If you see that, you can be sure that what you are reading is not an actual review. It is an ad disguised as a review. Their purpose is to get you to buy the bike, not to point out the pros and cons! Move on!

When looking for reviews online, stick to the most popular online magazines such as Singletrack, GearHead, Mountain Bike Review, and Mountain Bike. These are the online magazines that will give you the most accurate information in terms of reviews. You'll also find the latest mountain biking news, as well as plenty of trail and running information. These four websites are vitally important for serious cyclists.

Of course, the best reviews are the ones you get from other riders, in person. When you see a mountain biker on the trail riding a bike that interests you, take the time to talk to him. Tell them that you are planning to buy that particular bike and ask them what they like about it and what they don't like. Find groups of mountain bikers in the parks and try to talk to them when they take a break. This way it won't interfere with your trip and you can get several different reviews "in person".

Ask as many questions as you can, but try not to irritate them by preventing them from enjoying your trip. After or before talking to them, sit back and watch them ride. You're not looking at his technique, although that may be interesting, what you want to see is how well the bike handles. Seeing the bike in action is the second best review you can have - the first best review you can get is your own review!

As your interest in a particular bike grows, you'll want to try one for yourself. You can test out touring bikes that are for sale in bike shops, but you really can't put them to the test well enough in a 'travel test' situation to learn what you need to know. Your best option is to try a friend's bike. Take it out for a day and see what you can do relative to what you can do with it. Get a great workout, and by the end of the day, you'll know enough about cycling to write your own review.

Do your part in the mountain bike community by contributing your own reviews to websites that allow consumers to submit mountain bike reviews. Be clear in your writing and honest in your opinions. Make sure you have the correct facts and distinguish between opinion and fact! You will be doing many other mountain bikers a huge favor by submitting your honest and accurate mountain bike review!
