The Mountain Bike is, as implied, a mountain bike in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Mountain Bike exists in the game as one of only three bicycles in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, designed more for speed and power rather than nimbleness and ability to execute bicycle tricks.

Compared to the BMX and the Bike, the Mountain Bike is obviously distinguished by its size and the rugged tires, since it is designed to travel through uneven roads.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Mountain Bike is the most capable in hill climbing; even if an incline is significantly steep, due to the fact that it has multiple gears (while other bikes only have one). The player can tap the acceleration command while on a Mountain Bike can climb its slope with less effort than other bicycles.

As mentioned, the Mountain Bike is less tailored for stunting, and only allows the player to execute moderately high bunny hops when the player can hop higher on a BMX.

  • A unique black mountain bike appears in the mission House Party. This bike only appears in the cutscene. To obtain it, type black traffic cheat and you can obtain it in several locations.
  • A unique cyan mountain bike appears in the mission Madd Dogg's Rhymes. The bike is given after leaving the Crib as an option to come back to the Burger Shot. You can keep it in a garage.

  • The Mountain Bike has a glitch that only works in the original PlayStation 2 version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. While reversing, rapidly tap the accelerate button (normally X), and CJ's body will twist ridiculously out of proportion. You can also release the square button and keep tapping X and you will ride normally with a glitched CJ. The "glitch" duration, however will depend on how much time you spent doing the actual glitch, as CJ will slowly revert back to normal.
    • Attempting this glitch in the PC version will rarely get CJ glitched, but in a different way. Some body parts (such as arms, legs or head) will turn invisible. This has no effect in gameplay, however.
  • Attempting to fire a RPG at the bike and blowing it up will result in the player catching on fire. Similarly, attempting to do the same with a Hydra will result in the aircraft being damaged and blown up. This also applies to the BMX and the Bike.
