Let us decide...

Unfortunately it’s simply not enough to call yourself a mountain biker anymore. Our sport has splintered into a number of disciplines and sub-disciplines all aimed at specific riding preferences.

>>> What type of mountain biker are you?

It can very quickly get a bit confusing so we’ve cobbled together this not-so-scientific test to let you know the type of riding you must objectively do 100 per cent of the time… OK, we’re joking, as far as we’re concerned it doesn’t matter what you ride as long as you’re out on your bike, but sometimes it can feel that way if you pay too much attention to marketing and internet discussions.

The outcomes vary from downhill demon to dirt-jump destroyer and even (shudder) closet roadie but it’s all in the spirit of fun. There’s no real science to this mountain bike quiz, and a purchase probably shouldn’t be made off the back of the outcome, it’s just a light-hearted test to see which camp you fall into.

As always, you can let us know which bike you came out with on Facebook and Twitter, and don’t forget to share the quiz to see which bikes suit your friends.

Come back next Monday for the latest instalment of our series of mountain biking quizzes.
