The frame is considered the most important part or the backbone of the MTB bike. A frame suitable for your body shape not only makes it easy for you to exercise without harming your health. In addition, a frame with good materials will help your car have good durability and impact resistance, you will be more confident and easily overcome difficult terrain.
Currently, MTB chassis is usually manufactured from materials such as steel alloy, aluminum alloy, carbon, titanium.... These materials often have a durable structure, providing good impact resistance.
+ Steel alloy frame: withstand large loads, durable, good impact resistance, cheap price. However, the heavy weight is laborious and easy to corrode.
+ Aluminum alloy frame: light weight, fast response. However, the disadvantage of aluminum is that it is not very impact resistant.
+ Carbon frame: sturdy, very light weight, often used in racing bikes that can maintain speed, feel faster, but very expensive
+ Titanium frame: is said to be the best material to make a bicycle frame, very strong, super light, best anti-corrosion, has a long life, the only disadvantage is the extremely high price.
Tip 4: Choose a suspension system
The shock absorber system of a mountain bike, also known as a fork, is a part that helps reduce the impact of the road surface, can absorb vibrations from potholes, rough, uneven roads to bring a giving you balance, comfort and ease of driving.
There are two main types of power-assisted mountain bike forks: Spring fork (also known as Coil fork) and Air fork (or Air fork).
Spring fork : This is a type of fork that uses compression mainly in steel or Titanium metal springs.
+ Advantages: Easy to maintain, maintain, low cost and has better ability to absorb impulses and withstand forces.
Cons: heavy and difficult to adjust.
Air fork : If the Coil fork uses compression mainly in the metal spring, the Air fork is the opposite, using compressed air to act like a spring.
+ Advantages: Light and easy to customize according to the weight of the rider
+ Disadvantages: The compressed air pressure can be changed by the ambient temperature inside the fork caused by the friction process or the outside ambient temperature when cycling. This affects the stability of the fork. The price of the air fork is also higher than the spring fork.
Tip 5: Choose the brake
Mountain bikes are equipped with two main types of brakes: disc brakes and rim brakes.
Disc brakes are more expensive, but when they win, they eat more. Rim brakes are cheaper but don't work as well in rainy and muddy environments. Therefore, for FORNIX mountain bikes, only disc brakes are used to ensure safety when used in muddy, slippery, and steep hills.

If your need is to go to the forest, climb hills and wade streams, you should choose a wheel with suitable spikes, high grip, otherwise if you go on a long road, need speed, or light dirt road, you should use a cake with little spikes to reduce friction and increase movement speed.
