It is worth buying the mountain bike if you often ride on mountain and forest trails, rough terrain, city parks, and broken asphalt roads. This is all the more necessary if you want to compete in cross-country or something the like.
The mountain bike is designed for off-road riding. However, it can be quite successfully used as a regular bike. But at the same time, the models have a special design that significantly distinguishes them from city and track bikes. The main advantage that the mountain bike has over standard bikes when used in the city when riding on asphalt or in the park is the potential ability to make jumps when necessary, overcoming obstacles that interfere with traffic in the city. For example, it can be gutters or curbs.
One of the undoubted pluses is that such bikes go through obstacles much easier and have a better grip on the ground. Mountain bikes are produced mainly with 26" wheels.
