mtb components wear & tear


Recommended Posts

ok so iv started riding my mtb a LOT more now and my road bike is just being left for a weekend ride, but want to know what is the avg life time of mtb components(XT) and tires(Maxxis) if i ride on the road and off road? is the wear on the mtb much more than the road bike? wheelz2009-10-15 10:42:27

Im sure some one can give average figures,but yes it is more taxing on an mtb..maintanance plays a huge role here,especially when you go offroad.As far as tyres go,it depends on the profile,tread design and compound,u may see the tyre starting to wear "square" with excessive road use.

Depends where and how you ride as well as how you look after your chain/s.


I have had anything from 500 to 1500km from a chain and 1000 to 5000km from a BB. The casette and chainrings is depedent on chain ware and maintenance.


IMHO there is no comparison to road.

Xt should only last 1 Trans Baviaans in the rain, thats 230ks of mud and 6ks of wear and tear.
