Hi David Humphries here! Welcome to DIY Mountain Bike.
I created this website to help the beginning mountain biker advance quickly in skills. Like so many passion activities the folks who are writing about it don’t “start at the beginning”
That’s what DIY Mountain Bike is going to do; start at the beginning. I’ll provide a glossary of terms and acronyms to let you know what things like:
- Bottom bracket
- Clipless pedals – this one is weird. It describes actually having clips on your pedals.
I’m an avid mountain biker, I get out a couple times a week and have actually entered a couple races. But more importantly I truly enjoy communicating and showing folks what I’ve learned. I also also have Pro Mountain Bikers and Endurance Racers helping provide articles.

Kat Jahnigen – Writer and Rider at DIY Mountain Bike
Professional writer Kat Jahnigen was 2 miles from the nearest village – and roughly 2,310 miles – from the nearest English-speaking town – when her bike tire burst. At that time, she was a college student on a bike trip across the desolate, rocky island of Crete. It suddenly occurred to her that it would’ve been good to learn some basic bike repairs before setting off on a solo bike trip.
