10 reasons to prefer a MTB to a BDC

Here are our TEN REASONS TO PREFER A MTB TO A RACING BIKE.


And you, which side are you on? Better the concreteness of the road racer, with targeted training aimed at improving his performance, or the light-heartedness of the biker, more whimsical than imaginative?

10 REASONS TO PREFER A MOUNTAIN BIKE TO A RACING BIKE

1. IT'S FASTER ON "SECONDARY" ROADS

The Biker has a better chance of escape from a possible chase by the Californian police, thanks to his friendship with the dirt road.
365 assumes no responsibility in the event of escapes from the police.
The Stradista, fine wheels and love for bitumen, will never even remotely hope for a Hazzard-esque escape. He will soon be surrounded.

2. THE BIKER IS MORE TRENDY

The Biker, in his loose clothing and Flat shoe, will always be at ease: even in the case of an unexpected commission in the post in the middle of the tour.
The Stradista, naked in his lycra and completely at the mercy of his cleats, stumbles towards the post office, attracting the attention of all present including the guardian of the Bank.

3. WINTER IS HIS FRIEND

The Biker will not be afraid of the winter cold. As allies he will have: the low average pace and his being one with nature. It is not uncommon to see a biker intent on drinking from a pool of water and, in the case of Anglo-Saxon bikers, the addition of a twinings is a must.
The road driver whizzes, and freezes, on the asphalts of the whole world: the dressing before the exit can last longer than the exit itself. During training, it is not uncommon to see road riders clapping their hands together, even if it was a Shakira ballad.

4. THE HAIR MAKES A MAN

The Biker, when passing in front of a beautiful girl, shows his hairy chest and the success rate can increase by 17%. The road rider, in his total hair removal, can scare the fair sex given the tangible risk that the amount of hair is less than that present in the partner.

5. EVERY DENT IS ADVENTURE

For the Biker, every notch (or mark on the frame) is a story of an adventure, whether it's an epic ride or a sensational fall little changes. Everything remains imprinted on him and you can see it in his eyes (and in the percentage of devaluation of the frame).
The road driver, with a 30x magnifying glass, reviews the entire frame after each ride: in the case of finding a sign, inner death arrives. Sleepless nights are frequent and the wife may get strange ideas about her husband's sentimental loyalty, not thinking that all she is thinking about is the bike.

6. STYLE BEATS FITNESS

For the biker, the goal of every outing is fun: just a jump well done, a decisive publication on instagram and a shower of thousands of likes. And in the evening a big party with friends.
For the Stradista, the goal of each outing is the search for the hunger crisis: after posting the altimetry of today's tour, resembling an electrocardiogram of a hamster, he receives only one like. Maybe 3000m of difference in altitude are few, better to increase next time, he thinks in his heart. And he sleeps until the next day.

7 - THE LIKELIHOOD OF THEFT DECREASES *

It is known that the cases of theft are increasing more and more. It is estimated that, compared to 14 million Italians who travel by bicycle, at least once a week there are 320 thousand thefts a year reported by Fiab, the Italian Federation of bicycle friends.
According to recent studies by 365tv, in the event of an unfortunate theft at home, the MTB has a greater chance of being dirty than the BDC: therefore, the thief, after a little second thought, will steal the cleanest bike.

8. GREATER WEALTH

The Biker can enjoy MTB biker enjoys his bike even if it is a few years old. Indeed he remembers with pleasure that day that took her, even if far away. Maybe the style of riding it has changed but the fun is still the same.
The road rider, on the other hand, browsing through catalogs, sees that the new model of his bike has changed. From the scarlet red color we switched to amaranth: and immediately thoughts of changing bikes arise.

9. GREATER RECOVERY ON THE ALPINE PASSES

The Biker knows that, after a climb, there is always a descent. And joy assails him. As a snack, he swallows bread, salami and beer, clearly compromising even the downhill performance. But it doesn't matter, as with the inhibited senses the sensation is to go faster.
The road rider, on the other hand, crosses the Alpine passes but cannot stop, under penalty of freezing: therefore an energy bar and newspaper under the garment, all in precarious balance.

10. YOU CAN RUIN THE MEDIA

The third time in MTB is likely to be longer than the training itself: 1 hour of lap, 2 hours of chatting at the bar. The road driver must have a lot of personality in stopping and, after drinking the much-dreamed coffee, must hurry towards the exit of the bar, otherwise the group of friends will be lost, intent on going straight without stopping with the aim of creating selection in the platoon.

EXTRA - HAPPiest GIRLFRIEND

Biker who comes back full of gas full of adrenaline, takes the girl and with a: "towards infinity and beyond" throws her into the room / bed. Road driver who arrives cooked and says to the girl: "I'm in a full hunger crisis, I need carbohydrates, would you put water for the pasta that I don't even have the strength to turn on the stove?"

And you, which side are you on?

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
