    Different types of riding...

    Hello,

    I was hoping someone could explain the differences between the following types of riding:

    1. Trail
    2. Cross Country
    3. All Mountain
    4. Free Ride

    I think I can at least figure out Downhill by myself!

    Thanks, I appreciate your input.

    Yup, it is pretty much a continuum there with XC race on one end and freeride on the other.

    "svyatko i ride a trek 4300 disc brakes. wat style of riding do you suggest i due?"

    Don't ride based on what bike you have. Ride based on what you want to do.

    Can you see yourself doing this? Google videos to see the different styles and what the extreme versions of that style are?
    I personally like dirt jumping, dowhhill, and some trails.

    If you're bike isn't best for the type of style you like, then work with it. Do the best you can on that bike for that chosen aspect of riding, then get a better bike some day.

    Also, it has to depend on where parks are located at around you as to what you can do.

    any kind of riding you want to
    what kind of bike did the original mtn bikers ride? pretty much steel road bikes with fat tires.
    as long as you dont go hucking off things all the time you should be able to ride any style. after you find the type of riding you prefer, then you can get a specialized (not the brand, a specific built bike) bike
