Created tag [tag]jumping[/tag], as this seems to be a large part of mtb and dj riding. Edit away if needed.

comment What are the good ways to maintain the bicycle while raining season?
According to latest comments under the question, his BB is sealed. His hubs are unspecified, and I am not sure if the cheapest hubs are loose bearings or sealed. The headset is most certainly loose. His pedals are not large platform with pins, which (in my book) means that wearing out the bearings and needing a replacement is a good thing.

Your Bottom Bracket is sealed - no maintenance required/possible. Breaks need to be adjusted only when one of the pads rubs the rim (lift the bike and rotate its wheels, they should make plenty of rotations). Hubs - the site doesn't specify, but I expect they do not require/need maintenance. Btw it will come a time when your fork will develop play between the stanchions and the boots (maybe 2 years from purchase). A side effect will be that rain water will enter the fork and block its movement.

Take a photo. I think the clicks should be generated by the red knob, that fits into the hex opening (though I have never seen/owned) a Reacon,

comment Attack position
@mattnz, I was under the impression that the attack position is assumed anytime the rider is off the saddle (and not pedalling hard, then you stand up and move your weight forward). Btw the guy in this video has his back vary far from parallel to the ground (his shoulders are high). How come?

comment Attack position
I think I'm beginning to understand. So the rule your butt should be in the middle between the saddle and fully extended position is rather a guideline, and the hard rule is your back must be parallel to the ground. Correct?

See, for example, here the bars are higher than the saddle. On the other hand, here the seat is higher than the bars.

Can you tell us what sort of bottom bracket you have? Also, what brand are your hubs? Type of breaks?
