Posted: May 3, 2010 in All about MTB

A mountain bike or mountain bicycle (abbreviated MTB or ATB (all-terrain bicycle)) is a bicycle created for off-road cycling. This activity includes traversing of rocks and washouts, and steep declines, on dirt trails, logging roads, and other unpaved environments — activities usually called mountain biking.

Wheels used on mountain bikes usually use wide, knobby tires for good traction on uneven terrain and shock absorption.
