MTB Skills and Tips with Andrew Neethling – How to Set Up Your Bike

Over the past few years, the number of people buying a new mountain bike has exploded. More and more of us are exploring our local trails with friends and family at the weekend and enjoying the freedom and access to nature that mountain biking gives us.

However, most people buy and start riding their new mountain bikes without knowing how to get the most from the bike or the skills to make the most of their riding experience. 

In this video series, we have asked ex-professional downhill racer and mountain bike commentator, Andrew Neethling, to share tips and advice for new mountain bikers to ensure they build good habits from day one and have the skills and confidence to take their mountain biking as far as your heart desires.
