How to Train for an Off-Road Triathlon : Off-Road Triathlon: Bike Training

important. The most important part, though, of your mountain bike is stability. And, so,

are, do not apply for the mountain bike. So you want to have a position where you can
generate power or you can shift around on the bike, and that’s really important to practice
in training, shift back and forth on the saddle. Bar ends, that you can go out if you need
to get more weight over the front wheel to keep it down on a steep climb. And a position
that is set up for generating power and being comfortable and being stable. (Demo)
