ok i need to know everything there is to know about mountain bikes

i need to know:

what there made of

how they are mad (processes used to make them)

how their mechanisms work e.g. gears, brakes etc

and other stuff along the same lines

thanks alot

Why?

Use a mountain bike website?

Different bikes are made of different materials. Steel, steel/aluminium alloy, carbon.

Different processes are used depending on the materials used.

Different brake systems use different mechanisms. There are V brakes, Disc Brakes, Hydraulic Brakes...

Is there not a book or website you can look in?

ok i need to know everything there is to know about mountain bikes

i need to know:

what there made of: usually cheap steel. Expensive bikes are usually aluminium alloy, can be titanium or carbon fibre

how they are mad (processes used to make them): Extrusion, cold forging, welding

how their mechanisms work e.g. gears, brakes etc:

gears are a transfer of energy via a cog and sprocket system, with varying ratios

brakes apply friction to the rims or disks, to slow the bike.

and other stuff along the same lines

thanks alot

I dunno but when i was very young i used to think they were made from mountains

no, i will not do your school report for you youngin'
...even when i'm sleepin' i'm keepin' it real.

i need to know:

what there made of: Metal

how they are mad (processes used to make them): Too many AIDs jokes and lolwut pears

how their mechanisms work e.g. gears, brakes etc: with force, and plenty of it

and other stuff along the same lines: cocaine, speed, sometimes E...

Frames can be steel, aluminum, titanium or an alloy. Rarely will you find an all carbon fiber frame due to how brittle it is, but it is often incorporated.

Forks and other components are made from (mostly) aluminum or carbon fiber.

The brake rotors are almost always forged or treated steel (disc brakes). Brake pads are rubber (V brakes).

The processes can vary from hand welding and fitting to a machine or assembly line.

All the mechanisms are just basic mechanisms, nothing special for bikes.
